Reviewing Treatment Options During A Cosmetic Consultation

Cosmetic treatment provided by your dentist can result in a transformed appearance for you. People who undergo cosmetic work can look forward to having many different issues corrected. However, if you are not aware of what your dentist can do for your specific needs, you may have doubts about how they can help. Scheduling a cosmetic consultation with your dentist can provide you with detailed, specific information about how a particular treatment can improve how you look. This session is more than just informative, as you can also be warned about oral health issues that need to be addressed before you move forward with cosmetic care.

Your Dentist’s Recommendation For Cosmetic Care May Surprise You

Some issues affecting a person’s appearance may require unexpected treatment. For instance, if you have teeth that are discolored, you might walk in with the assumption that you will need to have a whitening treatment. Some patients who have issues with the color of their smile are facing issues as the result of intrinsic discoloration. If you have this form of discoloration, whitening agents may not be helpful. Porcelain veneers can cover up stains by covering your teeth – these thin, attractive shells are placed in order to hide a range of problems. In addition to covering up discoloration, patients can benefit by them because they hide issues like dental damage, as well as congenital issues affecting shape or size.

Identifying Oral Health Problems That May Interfere With Cosmetic Treatment

Before any cosmetic treatment can be started, your dentist will have to take a look at your teeth to ensure there are no oral health issues that must be addressed. When you do have a problem, your dentist can let you know, and talk to you about planning the appropriate treatment. In some cases, restorative work may lead to cosmetic changes. For instance, with a ceramic crown, you may find that a flawed tooth now fits in well enough with its neighbors to no longer be a concern for your appearance.
