When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, there is one name that stands out as a true leader: Ronald E. Goldstein, DDS, who has been teaching and practicing cosmetic dentistry for more than 50 years. In doing so, he has estimated that by age 50, 75% of people suffer from significant loss of tooth enamel, about 90% of which could have been prevented or reduced through proper awareness. To help consumers take charge of their appearances, particularly their smiles, he completely revised and updated Change Your Smile, the all-time best-selling book on cosmetic dentistry. The fourth edition enlightens the public, imparting the invaluable information necessary to make informed, well-educated decisions for an improved quality of life. --New Beauty Magazine
THE major resource for education about improving smiles! --Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD
Without a doubt the best tool I have ever used to visually communicate with patients about esthetic procedures --Edward A. McLaren, DDS
Of the hundreds of books on cosmetic dentistry written over the past 25 years, only one has stood the test of time. Change Your Smile the first comprehensive book to show patients what cosmetic dental treatment could do to transform their appearance and improve their self-image has been updated to introduce the current generation of patients to the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry. Based on the premise that most esthetic treatment failures are the result of miscommunication and false expectations, Change Your Smile speaks directly to patients about the range of possibilities as well as the limitations of cosmetic dental treatment, arming them with the knowledge they need to communicate effectively with their dentists. Like its predecessors, the snazzy new fourth edition invites readers regardless of their age, budget, or the extent of their problem to analyze their own smile and then observe how specific cosmetic procedures, most of them either minimally or noninvasive, dramatically improved the appearance of actual patients who sought treatment for the same problem. Stained, crooked, or missing teeth_#063_ Unsightly gaps_#063_ Showing too much gum tissue_#063_ These and the full array of other problems that can detract from a smile are presented in short, easy-to-read nuggets, and each problem, in turn, is followed by information showcasing the various cosmetic solutions available to resolve it. Featuring abundant before-and-after photographs, detailed charts for side-by-side comparison of treatment options, and myriad fashion and beauty tips, Change Your Smile effectively conveys the message that esthetic procedures not covered by insurance are nevertheless well worth the investment because of their potential life-changing effects.
