Many patients hesitate to undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures at first because they are unsure of the process or what the outcome will be. Modern treatment done by a trained cosmetic dentist encompasses solutions for a wide range of situations and concerns. Each patient is evaluated on an individual basis, and then we work on the best solution together. Often, I can provide a short-term solution while we progress toward a long-term goal.
Each case is different and every patient has a unique idea of what a beautiful smile is to them. For that reason, I take a fair amount of time with the initial consultation process. Sometimes patients bring photos of what they would like their teeth to look like and other times I can uncover what’s most important through conversation and looking at examples together. Either way, we work on it until get to the root of what will make the patient feel confident about their smile.
A great advancement in cosmetic dentistry is the use of Invisalign clear braces to straighten teeth. This allows adults to feel comfortable in public as they transition into a straighter smile. Other examples of a smile makeover are full mouth reconstruction with dental implants, porcelain veneers or crowns. One thing cosmetic patients like to hear is that we can do same-day whitening. I’ve found that this gives Invisalign patients an extra boost of confidence as they start their makeover process.
