Getting Expert Opinion on Cosmetic Dental Procedures

  • January 15, 2014

There are a lot of patients who think that getting cosmetic treatments is like getting a haircut or plastic surgery. They’ll ask for a certain enhancement thinking that their choice will improve their looks only because their neighbor, co-worker or a Hollywood celebrity had done the same. But just as any professional in their field would be able to do, your dentist would be able to give you valuable insights and advise on whether a particular procedure that you want to have will suit you. And if isn’t something that’ll work for you, your dentist could make better recommendations as to which ones will actually work better without compromising your oral health.

This important discussion, known as a cosmetic consultation, is what South Carolina dentist Dr. Doug Forbes will first conduct when you step in for a cosmetic procedure at his Total Dental Care of South Carolina clinic. Dr. Forbes understands the importance of knowing the results that you want to see in order to come up with a treatment plan that will meet those expectations.

The consultation will include a physical examination of your mouth and X-rays, as needed. Taking into consideration the information you provide him during the discussion, he will come up with sample “before and after” images to show you how you would look like after getting the procedures you requested, allowing you the chance to change your mind or to consider other possible treatments that will produce better results, based on Dr. Forbes diagnosis and expert opinion.

Total Dental Care offers a wide array of cosmetic dental treatments that will whiten, straighten and improve the appearance of your teeth with the right combination of products, equipment and techniques available in the facility under the skilled hands of Dr. Forbes. There are treatments like Zoom! in-office professional teeth whitening system, which can whiten your teeth in an hour; tooth-colored fillings for fixing cavities; Dental Lumineers and porcelain veneers for minor tooth repair; and Invisalign, ClearCorrect and Six-Month Smiles clear braces for your misaligned teeth.
