You've hidden your smile for the last time! You are finally ready to improve the appearance of your teeth, and you have some ideas about how you'd like your smile to look. You have some consultations scheduled and you're ready to learn more about cosmetic dentistry. Here are some important questions to discuss with your prospective dentists about cosmetic dentistry in Irvine, CA.
What are Your Ideas and Recommendations for My Smile?
As you visit with different dentists, you will find that they all have different perspectives and treatment philosophies. This is a good thing! You may learn that you have multiple treatment options to choose from as they present different plans to you. There may be possibilities you hadn't even thought of. Be sure to work with the dentist that will be most effective in helping you achieve your goals for your smile.
Can I See Before and After Pictures of Cases Similar to Mine?
Cosmetic dentistry is truly an art. Creating symmetry and harmony within a smile requires more than just excellent technical skills. You want a dentist who combines both skills and artistry, and there's no better way to determine this than by looking at pictures of their work.
What Will My Smile Look Like when It's Completed?
Most dentists don't have a crystal ball, but some like Dr. Jeffrey C. Robertson use a diagnostic wax-up for the same purpose. A diagnostic wax-up is a wax model created of your teeth and designed to show you what your finished smile will look like. It's very exciting and much easier to make final decisions about your treatment plan when you can see the finished product right in front of you!
