A prosthodontist is a dentist who specialises in functional and aesthetic restorations
If you are looking to restore the appearance of your smile, the best thing to do is have a consultation with a prosthodontist. In an initial consultation you can discuss what it is about your smile you are unhappy with, and what you expectations are concerning cosmetic dentistry.
There is more to repairing the function and appearance of your smile than applying various cosmetic treatments
For instance it is a necessary part of treatment to know what you, the patient, expect from treatment. If you are looking to restore a dull-looking smile: do you need tooth whitening, veneers, or crown work? If you do need veneers and crown work, do your other teeth need to be whitened first?
What do you expect from treatment? why are you getting treatment? Are the treatments you’re looking for going to the best treatments to achieve that result?
For example, you may want porcelain veneers but the health of your teeth may require dental crowns. This is why a consultation with a prosthodontist is necessary. A good treatment starts with explaining to patients what the best treatments are to suit your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry from Ironside Advanced Dental
The most popular cosmetic dental treatment is tooth whitening. This treatment allows patients to restore dull-looking teeth to a healthier, whiter appearance. For many of our patients it is all about a healthy natural look, not a Hollywood smile.
With Zoom tooth whitening we can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in two hours. Tooth whitening is often an integral part of cosmetic dental work because porcelain dental treatments cannot be whitened.
The importance of your initial consultation with a prosthodontist
When considering cosmetic dentistry consider what is best for you and your smile, after all what looks good on someone else may not suit you. This is partly covered in your initial consultation with Ironside Advanced Dentistry.
By telling your prosthodontist what your expectations are it can help determine the best treatment plan for you is. From tooth whitening and dental veneers, to dental crowns and dental implants: the process for a smile makeover can take a year so it is important to know what to expect and what the best way to proceed.
