Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

By Dr. Sarah Yang

Cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular in recent years, offering a wide range of treatments and procedures to enhance the appearance of your smile. If you have concerns about the aesthetics of your teeth and are considering cosmetic dentistry, you may wonder if you are a suitable candidate. We will address common factors that determine candidacy for cosmetic dentistry and provide insights to help you make an informed decision.

Overall Oral Health:

The first and foremost consideration for cosmetic dentistry candidacy is your overall oral health. Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedures, it is essential to have a healthy foundation. This means having good oral hygiene practices, healthy gums, and a stable oral environment. If you have untreated dental issues such as gum disease, cavities, or tooth decay, these should be addressed and treated before pursuing cosmetic treatments.

Specific Dental Concerns:

Cosmetic dentistry can address various dental concerns, including stained or discolored teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, misaligned teeth, and more. If you have one or more of these aesthetic concerns, you may be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. You can schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Sarah Yang, who is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, so she can assess your specific concerns and recommend appropriate treatment options tailored to your needs.

Realistic Expectations:

Having realistic expectations is crucial when considering cosmetic dentistry. While modern advancements in cosmetic dental procedures can achieve remarkable transformations, it is important to understand the limitations of each treatment. Consulting with us will help you gain a clear understanding of what can be achieved and whether it aligns with your expectations. We will guide you through the available treatment options and provide insight into the anticipated outcomes.

Commitment to Aftercare:

Maintaining the results of cosmetic dentistry procedures requires a commitment to aftercare. It is important to follow proper oral hygiene practices, attend regular dental check-ups, and follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided by your cosmetic dentist. By doing so, you can prolong the longevity of your cosmetic enhancements and enjoy the benefits of your new smile for years to come.

Factors such as your overall oral health, specific dental concerns, realistic expectations, and commitment to aftercare play significant roles in candidacy.
