If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, the first step is to consult with a cosmetic dentist. During your initial consultation, you’ll want to ask many questions about how the dentist will manage your dental work, how it will help you achieve the smile you want, and how much time the process will take. Asking the right questions is the best way to ensure you’ll be happy with your dental work.
Consulting With Your Cosmetic Dentist
The initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist is when you’ll ask all the questions you need to ask to clarify what you’ll have done to your teeth and what the results will look like. This will help you determine what procedures you’ll have done as well as whether you’ll be comfortable with the individual dentist. It can also give you a good idea of what your teeth will look like after your work is complete.
Some questions to ask include:
- How invasive is the recommended procedure?
- How much time will it take?
- Can I combine several procedures into one visit?
- What will my teeth look like after the procedure?
You can also learn a great deal about the dentist from their website. Many cosmetic dentists include before and after galleries of their previous work so you can get a good idea of their approach to certain types of work. If you like the way previous patients’ work has been completed, you are more likely to be happy with your own results.
Choosing Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Once you have spoken to and chosen your cosmetic dentist, you can decide what procedures will provide the results you desire. This could involve a single procedure or a combination, depending upon your goals. In many cases, you’ll be able to combine two or more procedures into a single visit to save time and money as you achieve your ideal smile.
