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, it is very important to get the right dentist who has a lot of experience with prominent 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 dental crown to make sure that it matches the rest of the teeth. Ultimately, it is the dentist’s responsibility to get it right. This is why it is important to pick an office with abundant experience in cosmetic dentistry.
Staining: There are times when simple tooth bleaching will not take away the stains in your teeth. This can sometimes require more extensive work with a combination of teeth whitening and dental veneers.
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. Make sure your dentist has experience with this and can foresee problems that may arise with your case.
Whatever the concern you may have with your mouth, there is usually a universal consensus—it should look great when it is finished. Please call Dr. Mark Phan today and set up a consultation. He is glad to help you fix whatever it is that may be bothering you about your smile.
