Am I A Candidate For Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you are in any way dissatisfied with your smile or the way your teeth look, you are a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. After determining what you donít like about your smile, itís a good idea to start by collecting photographs of smiles you like. You can then schedule a time to discuss your concerns and desires with your dentist. He or she will evaluate your current situation; let you know if your goals for improving your smile are attainable, and, if so, what procedures will be involved to reach those goals.
 
Many dentists can provide you with a simulated image of what your new smile will look like. The computerized image of your new smile serves as a visual reference for you, as well as those who may participate in your decision making process.
 
How Do I Choose A Cosmetic Dentist?
As you discuss your cosmetic concerns with your dentist, ask to see before and after photographs of other Smile Makeovers treatments he or she has completed. As you look at the photographs and observe the changes in their smiles, also notice the changes in their entire face. You will often see that their eyes twinkle, their smiles are more genuine, and their head position is more confident. 
 
Many patients are proud to share their results and experiences and are willing to talk to other people interested in similar procedures. Ask your dentist to speak with another patient who has completed treatment that is similar to what you will be doing.
Knowing that your dentist has completed continuing education training in cosmetic dentistry is another important criteria when choosing your dentist. Itís ok to ask where and how often your dentist has received his or her training.
 
The dental laboratory your dentist chooses to partner with is also an important criterion. Laboratory technicians, highly skilled and trained like artists, sculpt and manufacture veneers and crowns to match your desired new smile. HiTec technicians receive ongoing training in the artistry of smile design.
