Master of the Dental Makeover


r. Richard Lestz, a dentist with over 25 years experience in dental cosmetics, implants and general dentistry, has a unique calling card. Above a caption, which reads “dento-facial symmetry,” it shows horizontal and vertical lines drawn through a face. What does this have to do with Dr. Lestz’s specialty, you may ask? Plenty.

“These are proportion­al and symmetrica­l,” he explains. “Faces that we consider to be beautiful, or ideal, fit into these lines.When teeth are crooked or missing altogether, there is a loss of bone and other supporting structures, which may cause the shape of the face to collapse inward and vertically. By cosmetical­ly reconstruc­ting the teeth and their supporting structures, we can achieve a more esthetic, healthy and youthful appearance.” lines
