There are all kinds of options when it comes to having a cosmetic dentistry procedure depending on your particular needs. With such a wide range of choices available why settle for just one, or even two? What about a complete smile make over?
The first step towards your goal of achieving that perfect smile will be the patient/dentist consultation. This is the time to make your expectations clear and be sure that your dentist understands them. It may help to bring pictures of the kind of smile you’re hoping to reproduce. It is also the time to listen to your dentist’s opinions and recommendations.
In order to be sure that you’re both in sync as to the outcome your dentist may present a virtual image of what your smile looks like now and what it will look like after enhancements have been made. Sometimes what is know as a “diagnostic wax up” can be used to produce a plastic model depicting every aspect of your new smile.
Before any final decisions are made your dentist will complete a thorough examination to determine the general state of your oral health. He may use x-ray technology to make sure there are no underlying issues that could impede a cosmetic procedure. A clean bill of health means all systems go.
