Ask These Questions Before Seeing a Cosmetic Dentist
Posted on: November 1, 2016
If you are visiting our cosmetic dentist office to discuss a smile makeover or what you do not like about your smile, then you are at the right place. We have a variety of procedures to transform a smile into something spectacular. Before we begin, we will need to know more about you and what you are trying to accomplish. As such, we recommend asking yourself these questions first: How white do I want my teeth? This is entirely up to you. With our in-office whitening procedures, we can whiten by more than eight shades in one visit. Our in-office procedure can transform both the smile and confidence in the process. It is, however, important that you know the shade of teeth color that you want before the appointment. Is the right amount of gum showing? When you smile, it is normal to see some of your gums. However, some people have too much gum tissue, and that tissue needs to be surgically removed in order for the proper amount of teeth to show. Do my teeth look like the right size? It is fairly normal for teeth to come in either too big or too little. As a result, they can look like an odd size compared with a persons’ smile. If your teeth look out of place, we have procedures that can help to change their shape. Do my teeth need to be perfectly straight? We have multiple ways to straighten teeth, but which one we use needs to be based on what your goals are. If your goals are to deal with a few problem teeth, we can treat them while leaving the other teeth intact. If on the other hand, you mainly want to straighten all of your teeth, you may need more of an orthodontics treatment. Are there any other imperfections I want to be corrected? Make a list of what you don’t like about your teeth and bring it with you to your appointment with a cosmetic dentist. That way you can go over everything in detail and discuss the various methods for treating what you don’t like. This will ensure that you and your dentist don’t miss anything. Modern technology has improved to the point where full smile makeovers are possible. It is rare to find anything about your teeth or your smile that cannot be corrected with the skilled hand of a cosmetic dentist. Even crooked teeth, broken teeth, stained teeth, and chipped teeth can all be fixed in a way that looks completely natural. That is perhaps one of the best things about cosmetic dentistry.
