Pasadena Texas Cosmetic Dentist
This patient was seen by a “Cosmetic Dentist” in Deer Park. I am at a loss on what the other dentist was trying to do. The other dentist fused the front two teeth together using old porcelain to metal crowns. Also, the dentist unnecessarily made a “wing” to grab on the backside of a tooth. However, the wing did not touch so the dentist just put a bulky filling between the wing and the tooth. This created an extremely ugly and unnatural appearance.Furthermore, the wind and bulky filling actual pushed the tooth forward causing more esthetic disharmony.
The patient searched the internet for a real cosmetic dentist. He came to me for a consultation and I devised a plan to meet his cosmetic criteria. I took off the wing and bulky white filling. I then did two veneers on both sides of the two front teeth. I would of loved to have taken the porcelain fused to metal crowns to make a more lifelike appearance. The patient just wanted two veneers.
Cosmetic dentistry is just an extension of good old Family and General Dentistry. I believe in educating the patient as to what I can do as a cosmetic dentist and what the lab can do. For true cosmetic dentistry success there needs to be an understanding of the end goal.
I devote a large part of my dental practice to Cosmetic Dentistry. See why patients from Pasadena, Deer Park, La Porte, League City, Friendswood and Seabrook have chosen me to be their cosmetic dentist.
