You deserve to have a smile that exudes confidence, you feel proud of, and that makes you want to grin even more! Unfortunately, for many people, cosmetic flaws like dental discoloration, damage, and misalignment can get in the way of this happening. If you’ve taken the first big step towards earning a smile that you love and scheduled a consultation with a cosmetic dentist, you’re on the right path. Read on to learn three important questions to be prepared to ask your dentist during your consultation so you can achieve the best possible results.

Do You Have Experience Taking on More Complex Cases?

Many people invest in smile makeovers when they require more extensive restorative and cosmetic work, whether that’s addressing discoloration and dental damage or missing teeth. Even if your dentist has years of experience, it’s a good idea to ask them about how many complex cases they’ve taken on. It can help you gauge their comfortability with addressing your own concerns, as well as assess their skill level.  

How Much Will My Smile Makeover Cost?

Every smile makeover has a different price tag associated with it, as each one is custom-tailored to meet an individual patient’s goals and aesthetic concerns. That’s why, once your cosmetic dentist has outlined what treatments they feel you could benefit from, you should also receive a detailed cost estimate. This will be broken down for you by the front desk staff, allowing you to ask any questions about financing options, insurance coverage (if it applies), and other payment-related concerns.

Will You Need to Refer Me to Another Office at Any Point?

If you require both restorative and cosmetic care to get your smile where you want it to be, the most streamlined experience will be with a dentist who can provide all of these services under one roof. This is especially the case if you’re interested in dental implants to replace missing teeth.

Not every dentist is qualified to place and restore implants in-office, requiring them to refer patients out for part of the process. This can be a hassle and require you to bridge the gaps of communication between two teams. By seeing a cosmetic dentist who can do everything in-house, you can eliminate this stress completely!

While some people may view cosmetic dentistry as a splurge, for many, it’s a necessity to help them get the most out of life. Although breaking the ice by scheduling a consultation with a cosmetic dentist can be daunting, it’s one of the most difficult parts about making over your smile. With these three important questions in your pocket, you can feel more prepared for the rest of your journey to come!
