Cosmetic dentists are capable of improving someone’s smile so that the patient can experience increased comfort and self-esteem. There are a variety of treatments available and a lot of things to consider before you get one done. This video explains some of the things you should talk to your dentist about before undergoing a cosmetic procedure.
The first thing you need to consider is the experience and expertise of the dentist. Ask the dentist for examples of treatment for cases similar to your own. Ask if they have photos of results further down the road after the procedure. You want to make sure that you will have lasting results for your smile.
The next thing you can talk to the dentist about is digital smile design. With improved technology, dentists today are able to evaluate the symmetry of a person’s face. They will look at the eyes, ears, nose, and gums before they actually evaluate the teeth. This is to make sure the new smile fits perfectly with everything already there.
Finally, consider the ceramists the dentist uses. Ask them who provides them with the ceramics and take a look at their work. This is what will be going into your mouth, after all. For more information, check out the video in the link above.
