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.

Pregnancy can lead to a number of dental problems in many women, including gum disease and increased risk of tooth decay. During pregnancy, your increased hormones can affect your body's response to plaque (the layer of germs on your teeth). Pregnancy does not automatically damage your teeth

Pregnancy can lead to dental problems in some women, including gum disease and the increased risk of tooth decay. During pregnancy your body is in turmoil  and your increased hormones can affect your body's response to plaque (the layer of germs on your teeth). Howver pregnancy does not automatically damage your teeth

Preventive dental cleanings and annual exams during pregnancy are not only safe, but are recommended, according to the American Dental Association.

 
 

Marc Liechtung, DMD, inventor of the Snap-on-Smile™ and principal in New York-based Manhattan Dental Arts, a practice that specializes in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, recommends the following guidelines for pregnant women:

Tell your dentist that you are pregnant.
Have preventive exams and cleanings during your pregnancy.
Postpone non-emergency dental work until the second trimester or until after delivery, if possible.
Elective treatments, such as teeth whitening and other cosmetic procedures, should be postponed until after the birth.
Routine x-rays, usually taken during annual exams, can usually be postponed until after the birth.
Sometimes emergency dental work is necessary:
Cavity fillings and crowns should be treated to reduce the chance of infection.
If dental work is needed, the amount of anesthesia administered should be as little as possible, but still enough to make you comfortable.
Emergency dental work often requires antibiotics to prevent or treat infections. Antibiotics such as penicillin, amoxicillin, and clindamycin, which are labeled safe in pregnancy, may be prescribed after your procedure.
X-rays may be necessary to perform many dental emergencies. According to the American College of Radiology, no single diagnostic x-ray has a radiation dose significant enough to cause adverse effects in a developing embryo or fetus.
The safest course of action is to postpone all unnecessary dental work until after the birth.

The rise in hormone levels during pregnancy causes the gums to swell, bleed, and trap food causing increased irritation to your gums. Preventive dental work while pregnant is essential to avoid oral infections such as gum disease, which has been linked to premature birth.
