Cosmetic dentistry is related with the appearance of your teeth and smile enhancement. In this particular field, the art of dentistry is more emphasized and not just pure science. The creation of white teeth or the complete brand new teeth generally, may seem to be something that is not sophisticated. However cosmetic dentistry needs a good eye, an exhaustive comprehension of the dental anatomy and also the dental materials’ mastery. It takes many years of broad study and intensive training to be able to carry out the several cosmetic dental procedures that we carry out at CKFarr.
What You Can Expect From A Cosmetic Consultation
During a cosmetic consultation, your dentist will ask you several questions regarding your smile- what you like, what you do not like and what you would to change. Bringing along pictures of how you looked in the past or how you would like to look in future is helpful and will make the treatment process even much easier.
A comprehensive oral exam will also be carried out since aesthetic problems such as discolored or missing teeth can be an indication of underlying health issues. As soon as the dentist has an in-depth understanding of your condition and what you want to achieve, he/she can give you the different treatment options that are available and advise you on the best option that you should take.
