Crooked teeth are more than a cosmetic problem. They can cause dental and general health problems as well. Find out why straight teeth matter and how to get them.
It seems like everyone is seeking a dazzling white smile these days. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), more than 600,000 patients are opting for veneer procedures annually. Any dentist, however, can call herself a cosmetic dentist.
Be sure yours has the expertise and a practice in place to effectively treat you. Untrained dentists might fail to address symmetry in your gum line, work with inexperienced ceramists or place veneers in an awkward position that affects your speech. A substandard practitioner might neglect to address staining under the veneers. Also of importance: the quality of the lab that fabricates your veneers. You need to know that the lab is certified and employs highly-trained technicians.
