What to Ask Your Dentist Before Having Cosmetic Dentistry Done to Your Mouth By Dr. Pinnix on January 07, 2013

Many people visit the dentist office for more than just a regular cleaning. Some people go to various cosmetic dentists for a complete smile makeover. If you have been searching for a South Charlotte dentist that can help you with your cosmetic dentistry, then you need to also take into consideration what questions you should ask before paying for a procedure.

Am I a candidate for your services?
This question is important because not every dentist can perform the types of procedures that you want done. They may have a list of cosmetic procedures they can do, but if you don't fit the qualified mold or you want something they can't do, then you will need to find another dentist.

Are my goals realistic?
Your expectations of the procedures may be realistic, but are your goals realistic? Can your cosmetic dentist eventually get you to your goals? More importantly, are you willing to do what you have to do to get you to a place where you can meet your goals? You may have to change your diet and spend some days at the dentist office.

Can you show me a computer simulation of the changes?
Before you spend your money, you may want to know exactly how the end result will look. Many cosmetic dentists can create a computer simulation that shows what the changes will look like on your smile after they are made. If your potential dentist can't show you a simulation, you may want to consider trying to find someone else. Some cosmetic procedures take a long time to reverse.

Use these questions the next time you talk to a cosmetic dentist about your smile makeover. It will make your experience more enjoyable and give you more confidence in the procedures.
