As with any great creation, the result is overshadowed by the imagination, and willpower, needed to create it in the first place. When it comes to building homes, buildings, bridges, etc., the imagination belongs to the architect, or “the artist” in this case; and the willpower to the construction crew. However, when the artistry is shrunk down to manageable proportions, then the artist handles both aspects simultaneously.
Having cosmetic dentistry performed upon you is like having an artist perform art on your body. Unlike tattoos though, where everybody sees, and notices the art, the crowning moment for a cosmetic dentist is when other people speak to their patient, and have no idea any work was performed in the first place. And just like with any other form of art, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
With that being said, it’s important that a person, in need of cosmetic dentistry, first perform some due diligence before making a decision on who they’re going to entrust this “living art piece” with. This means it’s important that you see some of the work already performed by the dentist. If you like the results, then this person can be placed on your short list of potential candidates.
Next you want to know that this doctor has been performing their craft as recently as the month you are in, or a few weeks prior. You never want to go someone who performs any form of cosmetic dental “once in a while.” If they are actively working on their craft, then they belong on your short list.
Lastly, stay away from “price.” If you are short on cash, then you may want to wait until you can afford going to someone whose work you really like. In most cases, those dentists charge well for their services. The reason being that they are in the upper echelon on their field, and they want to be paid as such. “Going cheap,” on your teeth is probably the worst decision anyone can make. If waiting is something you aren’t interested in either, then find out what financing options this dentist has, and the truth is almost every single one has a program you can get involved with.
The construction of your new smile shouldn’t be taken lightly. Remember, your new pearly whites need to be with 24/7, 365 days a year; are you sure you really want to half step with an aspect of your personality, and features, that the outside world will see on a regular basis? Just something to consider.
