Interested in Cosmetic Dentistry Work? Know What to Ask the Dentist! By Dr. Pinnix on April 29, 2013

Cosmetic dentistry work can enhance an individual's smile. However, you will need to ask the dentist some questions before any cosmetic dentistry work is performed. The answers to the questions can help you choose the right dentist and procedure in your local city or town.

At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, our South Charlotte cosmetic dentists can answer questions to in response to your need to discover how a cosmetic procedure will affect your smile. One part of dental work is getting to enjoy the final results. Therefore, knowing the shape, texture, color and other properties of ones teeth can help you have an idea of what the finished product will look like. This can help you know whether the results will be satisfactory or not.

Some dental work will require additional treatments. Since extra treatments will require more time, you should ask your cosmetic dentist if the procedure would require more than one treatment or one visit to the office. Therefore, a person should know how many treatments and how much time will be involved before starting any dental procedures.

After a cosmetic dental procedure, the dentist office should recommend certain guidelines to follow both from the dentist and the front desk. Some recommendations can include using mouthwash, a special toothbrush and specific toothpaste. Using the recommended items will protect the integrity of the cosmetic dentistry work.

Your dentist, like our South Charlotte cosmetic dentist, should always recognize that some individuals are afraid of pain. Therefore, you should ask if they use medicines, sedation, to help you overcome the fear of pain, noises or smells. Some dentists may recommend using sedation during a given procedure.

It is also important to ask the dentist about the costs and durability of the treatments as some treatments can be expensive, and you will want the results to last for years. A professional dentist will be glad to answer all of the questions to make sure that each individual understands the dental procedures.

Be sure to do your own research to learn more about cosmetic dental work to fully satisfy any other questions and feel free to call our Charlotte dentist office if you want more information about cosmetic dentistry and sedation dentistry.
