Practical Procedures in Aesthetic Dentistry Latest Edition ebook PDF Ethics could be considered to be a moral code, giving a set of principles to guide behav-
iour. All of us who belong to the healing or caring professions are expected to look after  our patients in their best interests, at all times. This is the obligation that society places on us, in return for the trust it places in our hands.

The doctor/patient relationship is underpinned by some fundamental principles, the  first of these being ‘beneficence’ – that is, doing good and acting in the patient’s best interests – and ‘non-maleficence’ – that is, doing no harm. This principle dates back to the Hippocratic oath, which also includes the exhortation Primum est non nocere, ‘First and most importantly, do no harm’. This is further supported by a secondary principle  of reserving more extreme measures to treat the more extreme conditions.
The two words ‘aesthetic’ and ‘cosmetic’ appear to be very commonly used in surgery  and dentistry and are often interchangeable. ‘Cosmetic’ comes from the Greek word  cosmeticos and generally implies temporary, superficial or reversible. ‘Aesthetic’ comes  from the Greek word aestheticos and is concerned with the perception, the philosophy or the structure of beauty. With its deeper meaning, the term ‘aesthetic’ may appear to  be favoured by the medical profession.

We live in an age where various cultural and social expectations associate beauty and  appearance with attractiveness, youth, success and status.

Added to this, in the presence of a rapidly increasing amount of readily available information, the people who are seeking cosmetic procedures have rising demands and expectations. They may also see themselves more as consumers than as patients. Because aesthetic dentistry may be  perceived as an issue to do with their ‘wellness’, they see it as their ‘right’ to have it done.
