Cosmetic Dentistry: Q&A Session

toothsilverquestionHow do you feel about the way your smile looks? Do you feel confident and happy with its appearance? Or do you feel dissatisfied if not somewhat embarrassed? If you answered with the latter response, it’s time to learn more about cosmetic dentistry. Fortunately, this area of dental care can guide you toward a beautiful smile that makes you feel proud. We understand that before you embark on a journey toward improving your grin, you may have some questions about what to expect. We are, of course, more than happy to offer answers.

Questions and Answers: Cosmetic Dentistry

Question: How do you decide if I qualify for cosmetic dentistry treatments? Does my smile need to display severe cosmetic damage?

Answer: There is no one set of factors that qualifies a patient to receive cosmetic dentistry. In most cases, you are a candidate as long as you want a more beautiful smile, and your teeth are healthy and not in immediate need of restorative dental care (which we prefer to address first).

Question: What if I am dealing with significant cosmetic problems?

Answer: You have nothing to worry about here – we will offer a combination of treatments to address all of your concerns. Or, we may suggest porcelain veneers, which allow you to customize your smile with the use of a single, two- or three-visit treatment.

Question: Can you help me straighten my smile or will I need to go to an orthodontist?

Answer: Yes, we offer clear braces to align your teeth, whether you’re suffering from overcrowding, spacing, over bite, under bite, cross bite, or open bite. Unlike traditional braces, you will wear clear plastic aligner trays instead of brackets and wires.
