Modern cosmetic dentistry is incredibly powerful, capable of taking just about any issue that you could be dealing with and repairing it. No matter who you are, a good cosmetic dentist can give you the smile of your dreams!

All that potential can be disorienting, which can make it hard to know exactly where to start at a cosmetic dental consultation. If you want to know some good questions to ask your dentist, here are a few that might be nice to start with.

What Can Address My Issue?

One of the best ways to make your consultation simpler is to have a very clear idea of what kind of issues you want to address. This gives your dentist the opportunity to begin thinking about a treatment plan and to tell you more about the procedures that could be the most useful for you.

If you haven’t already, think specifically about the issues that you would like to address, and how you would explain your problems to your dentist.

Can I See Your Work?

Of course, your consultation is not just about your dentist getting to know you—the opposite is also true! Your dentist is an expert, but even experts have strong and weak suits. The consultation is a good opportunity to figure out where this dentist’s strengths lie.

Most dentists take promotional pictures of their work, and they will be happy to show them to you if you ask. This not only gives you an opportunity to see what certain cosmetic dental work looks like, but can also let you see what this dentist is capable of.

How Long Will The Results Last?

Cosmetic dentistry can make you feel like Cinderella showing up to the ball, but like Cinderella, the magic doesn’t last forever. You shouldn’t go into your dental treatment with unrealistic expectations about how long your results will last, so it’s a good idea to establish beforehand the likely outcome.

Of course, these are just places where you can start. You should feel free to ask any question you have for your dentist—they’ll be happy to make time for you!
