06 Nov Do I need cosmetic dentistry?
Teeth straightening with Invisalign or clear braces, whitening, porcelain veneers… there are more options available to you today than ever before. In general that’s a good thing, because it means you’re more likely to be able to find a treatment that suits you perfectly. But it also creates a tricky issue.
With such an array of choices on offer, how do you decide? Of course, as with every subject in the world, there’s a wealth of information available on the internet.
Two problems here. First, a lot of the information is biased. If you go to the butcher and ask what you should have for dinner, he is never going to recommend a salad. In the same way, a cosmetic dentistry website that specialises in one particular type of treatment is always going to position that particular treatment as the best solution.
Secondly, the internet can’t take your personal circumstances into account. You might have specific issues with your jaw, your bite, or other dental complications.
Obviously, your personality and your personal circumstances will always be unique to you. The right decision on how to achieve your ideal smile has to take these personal factors into consideration, such as how discreet you need the treatment to be, how quickly you want to achieve your results, and how much you feel you can afford.
That’s why a good cosmetic dentist needs to have not just great hands, but great ears. Listening is key. They will first put you at ease so that you feel comfortable talking… and then carefully answer any and all questions you may have.
Which means that when you are ready to make your decision, you can feel 100% confident it’s the right decision for you. So put down the internet, and call us on 1300 26 77 26 to make an appointment to see one of our expert cosmetic dentists today.
