Achieving a beautiful smile is more than a dream for some people. For some people they have the perfect smile already and it only requires minimal effort and 6 monthly trips to the dentist. For others it may require extensive cosmetic procedures such as periodontal work, dental crowns, dental implants, porcelain veneers, root canal treatments or more. There is a process in dentistry known as full mouth reconstruction and it is a process of rebuilding a patients teeth using a number of cosmetic procedures. Full mouth reconstruction can cost anywhere from $15 to $20,000 up to $80,000 or even $100,000. The search for a cosmetic dentist begins with a look on the internet to understand what procedures you might need.
Secondly you would visit a dentist, one that you were recommended to go to or one that you found by yourself. Once you have discussed the procedures that you may need or would like to have ( you may want to see two or three dentists so that you can get a consensus opinion) then you go with who your heart tells you to go with, taking into account their previous work that you have seen, their understanding of what you would like to achieve and the price that you can afford and what seems most sensible. Make sure the dentist does wax-ups or is able to show you how your smile looks on the computer program he is using. Get a feeling for the staff. Are they able to answer all your questions? Make sure that you ask them have they attended lots of courses for the work that they are about to perform and have a look at their previous work. Is the location convenient to your home or work? Ask the dentist how long he thinks the treatment will take? Lastly check their reputation online.
