Do you feel like you have to close your lips when you are getting your picture taken? And maybe you find yourself covering your mouth a lot. Is the reason for those actions because you are embarrassed by your teeth? Maybe your parents were never able to afford braces for you when you were growing up.
Or, you might need cosmetic dentistry services because you were once in an accident and you never had that broken or missing tooth repaired or replaced. No matter the scenario, from making arrangements to see a professional who does cosmetic dentistry to having before-and-after pictures taken, here are some ideas that might help you.
If you know for sure that you are seeking cosmetic dentistry services in the near future, think of having your picture taken as it is now. Don't close your lips when you do it. After all, the whole point of before-and-after pictures is to see how different your smile will be once your cosmetic dentist has completed the job.
Think of placing your "before" picture in a place where you can look at it often. That will more than likely be an inspiration to you as work progresses. For example, if you are having a broken tooth repaired, or if you are getting a dental implant, it will be fun to see how much nicer you look when the work has been completed. The same goes for braces.
See A Dentist
Find out if your regular dentist also does cosmetic dentistry. If that's not the case, he or she will be happy to refer you to the right dentist. A dentist who does cosmetic dentistry will have the training and the experience to know exactly which steps to take to give you the beautiful smile you want.
For example, if you need a dental implant, a new tooth will be placed permanently and will function just as a real tooth would function.
Maybe you have decided to get braces in order to straighten your teeth. Are you uncomfortable with wearing metal braces? If that's the case, think of going with invisible braces. You'll probably be amazed at how affordable they are, and you'll be even more amazed when you can hardly see that the invisible braces are in place.
If you do get invisible braces, they will be changed as your teeth begin to straighten. Be patient. The beautiful smile you have when you are done wearing your braces will be worth the wait.
