Hi. I booked an appointment for September at a nearby dental school. I want porcelain veneers and I thought that this is a good opportunity to get them for less from a dental student instead of finding a cosmetic dentist in a private practice. Can you give me any advice on what to look or listen for, or what questions I should ask during my first appointment and as the treatment progresses? Thank you. Trisha W. from Indiana
Trisha – People who invest in porcelain veneers usually want a beautiful smile makeover. And beautiful smile makeovers don’t come from just any dentist. Only a dentist with artistic inclination and who has learned and practiced the techniques of cosmetic dentistry can give you that kind of smile.
Without cosmetic dentistry training and experience, porcelain veneers can look bulky, pasty and fake. An experienced cosmetic dentist has learned the techniques to match the color and translucency of your natural teeth. The result is porcelain veneers that look like beautiful natural teeth. People won’t be able to tell that they aren’t your natural teeth.
The kind of training and experience required for a beautiful smile makeover can’t be achieved by a dental student. They simply lack the training and experience.
If you want a smile makeover with porcelain veneers that is beautiful and long-lasting, you should find an artistic cosmetic dentist to do it.
