Are you considering a smile makeover? Modern technologies have made it more possible than ever to correct a range of dental imperfections. Whether you have stained, missing, chipped, misaligned, or gapped teeth, there is a cosmetic solution! But how can you begin to make your dream smile possible? Here are five questions to ask your cosmetic dentist to get you started!
#1. Can My Dental Issue Be Fixed with A Smile Makeover?
As stated above, current technology and techniques have made it possible for nearly all dental flaws to be corrected! A consultation with your cosmetic dentist will allow you to discuss your specific issues and what you would like to see changed. After a thorough examination, they can recommend the best option for your smile goals–perhaps veneers, cosmetic bonding, or professional teeth whitening.
#2. Can I See Before and After Pictures of Other Patients?
Reviews and pictures are a wonderful way to know if a product will be right for you; this includes dental services! You can ask to see examples of patients who have had similar imperfections in their smiles and see the results after a specific treatment. Many dentists have a smile gallery on their websites. For more extensive transformations, three-dimensional models can be made of your makeover by your dental team for a personalized visual of your potential results.
#3. How Long Will My New Smile Last?
As with any investment of time and money, you will want to make sure your new pearly whites will stand the test of time. While no dental treatment or procedure will last forever, your dentist should have the skills necessary to provide long-lasting results. During your consultation, be sure to ask them what the expected lifespan of your treatment or procedure would be, as well as what can be done to maximize its longevity.
#4. Will My New Smile Look Natural?
No one wants their teeth to look fake or overdone. Many years ago, this was likely a very valid concern. However, current dentistry has the tools and technology to keep your smile looking natural. Of course, it also relies heavily on your dentist’s skills and abilities. To ensure you’re getting the results you want, find a dentist that has a significant smile makeover experience.
#5. How Long Will It Take to Complete My Smile Makeover?
Depending on the recommended procedures needed to revamp your smile, your cosmetic transformation could possibly be completed in as little as one visit. For more extensive makeovers, the process could span over several visits, depending on where you’re starting and where you want to go. Be sure to discuss the expected time commitment with your dentist.
By keeping these questions in mind, you will be prepared for your exciting journey toward your new dazzling smile!
