Cosmetic dentistry has been on the rise in recent years and for good reason. While general dentistry focuses on the prevention and cure of oral disease, cosmetic dentistry moves a step forward and is actually preoccupied with the appearance of the teeth and gums.
At Smilemakers, we are passionate about improving your smile and self-esteem. Our cosmetic dentist in Southampton is here to answer all your questions and help you design your ideal smile.
What will my smile look like?
This question is not easy to answer since different patients have different smile goals. However, our cosmetic dentist will give you as much information about your treatment as possible before you begin. Ask for picture evidence and testimonials from previous patients. Whether you choose to have teeth whitening or dental veneers, our cosmetic dentist in Southampton should be able to present you with before and after pictures of the procedure as well as digital renderings of the anticipated results.
Will additional treatments be needed?
While some treatments can be completed in a single visit (i.e. teeth whitening), other will require follow-up treatments (i.e. veneers, crowns). Our cosmetic dentist will ensure that you are familiar with every aspect of your treatment plan including overall treatment time and anticipated costs. If you require additional treatments, we will let you know in advance.
What are the potential side-effects of cosmetic dentistry?
All dental treatments delivered in our practice are completely safe and tested. However, as with any dental treatment, there are risks. Patients with sensitive teeth may not be able to have their teeth brightened with a bleaching gel, but they can still achieve a beautiful and even smile with veneers. Your cosmetic dentist in Southampton will carefully review with you each treatment and help you make a well-informed and safe decision. Nervous patients or patients suffering from dental phobia can benefit from various sedation techniques. Simply ask one of your cosmetic dentists and they will be able to give more information.
