OK, so you've just reached your weight loss goals and made it through a fad diet, commercial or medical weight loss program or weight loss center, and are eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Congratulations! You've been through diet plans like South Beach, Atkins and low-carb diets. But, you're STILL not happy with how you look, especially your age. You want more. You want to turn back the hands of time. Well, first educate yourself about all the options out there for makeovers to your face, your teeth/smile, your skin, etc.
It has been reported that cosmetic dentistry accounts for 70% to 75% of restorative dental treatment. That is quite an increase from the 14% figure cited in 1980. The cosmetic products segment (15% of the dental labs industry's business) is growing 37% per year. The veneers business is growing 50% per year for the past 5 years, according to the American Assn. of Cosmetic Dentistry. Direct bonding has increased 20%/year for the past 5 years.

Its 2004 estimate of the size of the U.S. cosmetic dentistry segment of the business was $804 million.
