I’m considering cosmetic dentistry, which questions should I ask my dentist?

Are you looking to improve the appearance of your smile through cosmetic dentistry? Perhaps a friend or coworker has benefited from professional whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, or white restorations and you were impressed with the results. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, you might be wondering which questions you should ask your cosmetic dentist during a consultation. To help guide our patients considering enhancing their smiles, our dentist offers helpful tips for patients looking to learn more about our cosmetic services. 

If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, you might be wondering which questions you should ask your cosmetic dentist during a consultation.

Before scheduling your consultation, consider the following steps before visiting our dentist:

  • Learn the basics on different procedures such as placing porcelain veneers or dental implants that are used to enhance your smile
  • Write down areas or specific flaws in your smile that you would like to see improved
  • Compose a list of questions to ask your dentist to help you determine which service(s) would best benefit you
  • Fill out any paperwork necessary prior to your appointment to save time. Be sure to include your medical and dental history if you are a new patient.

During your cosmetic consultation, feel free to discuss how you would like to see your smile improved. Information regarding your desire for a whiter and straighter smile will help your dentist discern the best approach to take. If you have chipped, gapped, or missing teeth and would like to address these imperfections, mention this to our dentist. After your initial research, if you feel that a particular procedure such as porcelain veneers or replacing dark, metal restorations with tooth-colored crowns or fillings is of interest to you, feel free to inquire about your candidacy for these services as well.

Our team is here to help you understand our services and enjoy a renewed confidence in your smile. To learn more about our cosmetic services, which include in-office and take-home teeth whitening, white crowns, porcelain veneers, and dental implants, contact the office of Dr. Melisa Christian to reserve a cosmetic dentistry consultation.
