What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

"Cosmetic Dentistry" is a term that is used to describe the use of dental procedures and techniques to improve the appearance of one's teeth, smile, and face. The focus of any Cosmetic Dental Plan is to alter the teeth in shape, size, color, or placement in order to make your smile more pleasing.

What procedures are considered "Cosmetic?"

Just about any procedure that improves the appearance of your teeth or smile could be considered cosmetic. Whether it is teeth whitening, veneers, or replacing old silver-colored fillings with durable tooth-colored ceramic, if it makes your smile more beautiful, it can fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry. It is also true that any type of dental procedure has an aesthetic or cosmetic aspect to it. Even a routine filling done by an expert cosmetic dentist will have a quality and refinement that you may not see at a general dentist's office.

How do I choose a Cosmetic Dentist?

If you are considering a Cosmetic Dentist, schedule a consultation with the dentist and review your case with him or her. You'll want to find out exactly what that dentist proposes for your cosmetic plan, and how much time he or she thinks it will take to complete. As you interview your prospective Cosmetic Dentist, here are some things that Dr. Maddahi recommends that you look for:

Skill

Cosmetic Dentistry requires a great deal of skill and planning to be effective. While many dentists will take a weekend course and begin offering their patients porcelain veneers, Dr. Maddahi recommends that to get the best results, you look for a dentist who is both well-trained in a variety of cosmetic procedures, and has successfully transformed many smiles Ask a lot of questions, and be sure to ask any dentist that you are considering for your makeover to show you examples of smile makeovers that he has done in the past, particularly using techniques and results such as the ones that he is recommending for you.

Trust

When you select a dentist for your Smile Makeover, you are entrusting that person with your smile. You and your dentist will need to forge a strong partnership, in which both of you are working for the same goal, in order for your Smile Makeover to be everything that you want it to be. Always select a dentist that you feel comfortable with, someone that you can trust with your hopes, ideas, and ultimately, your smile. Trust your own instincts. We often see patients who are dissatisfied with the dental work they received at another office because they ignored their concerns right from the start.

Artistic Eye

Cosmetic Dentistry is also an art form. You should be looking for a practitioner who creates smiles that you consider to be beautiful.

You'll want him or her to look at your mouth and see the same things that you see, and envision the same beautiful smile that you would like to see – or perhaps one even more beautiful than you have dared to hope you. Clear artistic vision that matches your own is a key element in any successful Smile Makeover.
