The smile, more than any other feature is what both men and women find most attractive in other people. Your smile can break down barriers between you and a richer fuller life. How do you feel about YOUR SMILE?
Questions you can ask yourself to determine if you are a candidate for cosmetic dentistry:
- When you have a slight smile, do the tips of teeth show?
- Are your two front teeth in good proportion with your other front teeth as far as length, width and alignment?
- Do you have spaces between your teeth?
- Do your front teeth stick out more than your other teeth?
- Do your teeth overlap?
- Are your teeth all the same color when you laugh? Do the colors of your fillings match the shade of your teeth?
- Does your existing dentistry look natural?
- Do any of your teeth have visible cracks, chips or fractures?
- Do your gums look red and swollen?
- Have your gums receded from the necks of your teeth?
- Does your cheek and lip area have a sunken in appearance?
- Do you have tetracycline stain?
When choosing a cosmetic dentist, don’t let location alone be a deciding factor. Do your research to get referrals.
- Ask for a consultation.
- Make an outline of your concerns and expectations before meeting with the dentist.
- Ask to see photos of patients that were treated with a similar condition.
- Don’t shop for bargains! Instead, look for the dentist that takes their time to give you what you want.
- Get a wax-up. This is a blueprint of what the case will look like when it is done.
- Be up front about your budget restrictions.
Time and expense are two factors that you most consider when considering a cosmetic treatment plan.
