Written by Dr. McConnell on Aug 16, 2016

The decision to make over your smile is the first step on an exciting journey that will restore your smile and your confidence. As experts in cosmetic dentistry, you should consider the Novato Cosmetic Dentist as a partner on this journey. We’re here to help fulfill your vision and answer questions, while putting you at ease throughout the process.

Today we have many choices for making over your smile. When we meet for your initial consultation, we’ll discuss many of them with you. Until then, you might have some questions about cosmetic dentistry.

What does a cosmetic dentist do?

Cosmetic dentists are experts in the art of smile design. We’ve put a great deal of emphasis on studying the concepts of smile design and the innovative materials used for a smile makeover. We have made it our goal to remain up-to-date on all the latest advances, especially in dentistry.

What’s the difference between cosmetic and restorative dentistry?

There is some overlap between cosmetic and restorative dentistry. However, a cosmetic dentist goes beyond restoring your teeth to their proper function — our goal is to achieve the most optimal esthetic result and satisfy the vision that you have for your smile.

What can I expect at the initial consultation?

Before you come in for the initial consultation, ask yourself some important questions:Do you dislike the color of your teeth?

  • Do you dislike the color of your teeth?
  • Do you have chips or cracks that need to be fixed?
  • Do you have crooked teeth or spaces between teeth that you would like eliminated?

  • The goal of this first appointment will be to determine exactly what you want out of your smile makeover. We suggest that you bring in photos to show us what you would like your future smile to look like.

    We will also conduct a thorough examination to determine if your cosmetic issues are the result of any underlying health issues. From there, we’ll walk through treatment options, including pricing and timelines, and develop a plan of action.
