Cosmetic Dentistry and Informed Decisions


Cosmetic dentistry really is amazing and can take an otherwise crooked smile and make it beautiful again.

From cracked and chipped molars to discolored eye teeth you will have the tools you need to make a wise and informed decision.

When you schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Burlington you will have nothing to worry about.

Chittenden Dental For a Beautiful Smile

Not all cosmetic dentists are equipped to place porcelain veneers. In fact, virtually any dentist who has a license can advertise porcelain veneers as the American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty.

Unfortunately, this leads to poor veneer placement because the dentist didn’t have the training or experience to do so. With that being said, it isn’t always the dentists fault.

People who have been patients for years will sometimes beg and plead for services that the dentist isn’t trained to do. Because of the pressure, the dentist may go ahead and do the procedure risking veneers that are too big or not color matched to the rest of the smile.

Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry Mishaps

Removable Dental Aligners and Braces

One of the biggest mistakes people make is trusting DIY cosmetic dentistry. Your cosmetic dentist Dr. Mike Morris explains that all too often people who shouldn’t wear plastic braces often do, even though multiple dentists have advised against it.

This could cause permanent damage as clear plastic aligners, used to straighten teeth should always be monitored by a dental professional.

Unprofessional Teeth Whitening

Another huge mistake that often comes with DIY dentistry is tooth whitening. Most people are impatient and will often use over the counter products too often.

Using gels, pastes, one size fits all trays, strips and rinses from your local pharmacy is fine as long as you talk to your Richmond dentist first.

If you don’t and aren’t able to fight the urge, you could end up with over sensitive teeth. Using over the counter products too often can cause damage. Some people even complain of see through or bluish looking teeth.

Your cosmetic dentist in Richmond prides himself on providing you with the best dental experience possible.
