The Big Business of Veneers

What follows is a mostly comprehensive explanation of the process involved in manufacturing and installing the ideal human smile.

The practice of cosmetic dentistry unfolds in myriad ways every day, but for the purposes of this overview we will imagine the process from the perspective of the kind of person who is more likely than the average American to be in the market for veneers or other in-mouth improvements: somebody affluent, between the ages of 40 and 49, and female. Let’s call this character Mrs. Dalloway.

After decades of exposure to the gorgeous, face-flattering smiles ubiquitous among America’s celebrity population — the ones that dentists have been crafting since the advent of Hollywood but have only recently become grocery commodities that regular American people can go out and buy for themselves — Mrs. Dalloway decides to get her teeth done.

“I knew from my case, it wasn’t cosmetic,” said Ms. Escolastico, who contacted a lawyer after she lost her appeal last year. “I knew I had to fight for this,” she said.

But four of his 11 proposed new Cabinet members are facing investigations or suspicions of
