Smile makeover procedure, unique to you, designed with utmost care by Farmington Hills, MI dentist
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
- An all-important “pre-makeover” consultation – Dr. Bernstein will probably ask you, “If there was a magic wand, what would change about your smile?” Your answer to that question not only gives Dr. Bernstein insight into what you hate (or, conversely, what you like) about your smile, but it also frames the conversation in a way where he gets a sense as to the features you find attractive, and what you think cosmetic dentistry can do for you. If there is a disconnect between your natural features and what cosmetic dentistry can appropriately accomplish, he is open, transparent, and honest about that – as our goal at Richard S. Bernstein D.D.S. is to “overdeliver.” As your introduction into cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Bernstein works with you to establish realistic, yet no less exciting, expectations. When you no longer love an accessory or lipstick, you can simply switch it up. A smile isn’t a fleeting trend or at the mercy of the seasons. You must love any changes to this central and static feature of your face.
- Opportunities to “try your smile on” before you commit – You’ve probably read the horror stories about cosmetic dentistry at other offices on Real Self and additional review-driven websites. One of the themes that seems to come up time and time again with these unsatisfied patients, is how the dentist didn’t show them what their new smile looked like before cementing on veneers, crowns, or other restorations. At our office, you will have multiple opportunities to assess any improvements that we may recommend, and to confirm that you love them. Dr. Bernstein uses many different resources to ensure your smile looks naturally beautiful, from color and shape guides to the creation of diagnostic “wax-ups,” or models of your goal smile. Before any restoration is secured, precision adjustments are made as needed, and you’ll give us the OK. Only then will the new tooth structure be bonded to your natural teeth.
