It helps to build confidence through improving the areas of your smile that individuals may be less than pleased with. With cosmetic dentistry, the services may not be to affect the functionality of the teeth or mouth, but rather the aesthetic look. It is less a necessity, but more a desired service. There are several areas that cosmetic dentistry address.

What to Expect in Consultation

The initial consultation will help you gain understanding of what treatment moving forward looks like for your specific needs. You will be able to establish a connection with your dentist, and help them understand what you do or do not like about your smile. It will be a time of gathering information about your teeth, your past and present concerns and specific treatment options that best fit your needs. A few areas that may be addressed during consultation may include:

-Prior dental history, and dental records

-Impressions of your upper and lower teeth
