Would you go to a motorcycle mechanic to get your car fixed? The answer is probably not. When you have a tooth that is in the front of your mouth that needs dental work, you don’t want to horse around. It is very important to find a dentist who has a lot of experience with cosmetic dental cases. Here are some examples of what can go wrong if you don’t choose an experienced cosmetic dentist.
Shading: It’s important to select the right color of porcelain veneer or crown to make sure it matches the rest of the teeth. This is why it is important to choose a dentist with extensive education and abundant experience in cosmetic dentistry and one that uses a quality lab that considers shape, shade, and translucency.
Staining: There are times when simple teeth bleaching will not take away the stains in your teeth. This can sometimes require more extensive work with a combination of teeth whitening and porcelain veneers or crowns.
Soft Tissue: Many times we forget about the importance of the gum as part of a beautiful smile, but it is very important. If you lose a tooth, the gum tissue can recede. Consequently, simply placing a dental implant or bridge may not fix the aesthetic concern. Tissue grafts and other methods may need to be performed.
Whatever the concern you may have with your mouth, there is usually a universal consensus—it should look great and natural when it is finished. Please call Dr. Bruce A.
