With Botox€Ÿ now a beauty maintenance nearly as common as a pedicure, and TV reality shows in our face (so to speak), we're no longer keeping our fondness for cosmetic procedures a secret. In fact, we are on the looking for the latest techniques with as much enthusiasm as we reserve for hunting down the best restaurant. And New York is the hot spot for it all. For word on the most innovative treatment and trends, read on.
Dr. Jan Linhart agrees, "I think as a result of these reality shows more people are focusing on dentistry to enhance their appearance. In the past, when people thought of improving themselves cosmetically, they would do facelifts, now quite often they'll fix their teeth first." According to Dr. Linhart porcelain veneers have had a tremendous impact on cosmetic dentistry. "They allow us to do things like change the color, alignment and size of the teeth." On hand with the dentist, whose practice of more than 20 years draws an international clientele, are an orthodontist and an implant specialist to help achieve the finest results. "Quite often makeover procedures involve a combination of factors, such as an implant or movement of some teeth, in addition to whitening and porcelain veneers."
