Have you ever gotten an unbelievable bargain on a used car that turned out to be a lemon? After a couple years of nonstop repairs, you realized that it ended up costing as much as a new car would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a a dud. The team at The Richardson Dentist reminds you, the same is true of deficient dental work.
You have probably received glossy postcard ads that proclaim amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry. The prices may be enticing, but be sure you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t trying to imply that all dental practices that tout low procedure prices in their ads furnish deficient work—we are just cautioning patients not to elect a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike an automobile, you can’t sell your used smile and buy a new one.
We will use porcelain veneers as an example. What can go wrong if you end up with substandard porcelain veneers?
- The dentist may be inexperienced and make mistakes: improper placement, inadequate color matching, bite complications.
- The materials may be unsatisfactory: unnatural color, prone to breaking, veneers pop off.
- The lab techs that create the restorations may turn out shoddy work: unnatural color, poor fit.
If you are considering a smile redesign, meet with The Richardson Dentist first. During your consultation, you will learn about our years of experience, techniques, specialty training, and the number of procedures performed. You will learn about the best suited materials for the restorations and receive information about the dental lab we use. We can also provide references if requested. And, of course, we will discuss how much each treatment will cost.
The Richardson Dentist also provides general dentistry. Make an appointment today.
