Comfort is everything when undergoing a smile makeover. Results will be much better if a patient knows the dentist is experienced, and understands what to expect from the procedure.
Darien, CT (PRWEB) September 27, 2011
Fairfield County, CT cosmetic dentist James Diette, DDS specializes in procedures for general and cosmetic dentistry. He says he has seen a marked increase in the number of smile makeover procedures performed over the last five years that is similar to the increase defined in the most recent data from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). According to the study, teeth whitening procedures have increased by more than 300%, while the number of smile makeover procedures including porcelain veneers has risen more than 200%. Because of this growth in the popularity of cosmetic dentistry, and because an improved smile can greatly impact a person’s self-confidence, Dr. Diette stresses the importance of choosing a dentist with extensive experience and proven results.
Another study from the AACD shows 99.7% of Americans believe a person’s smile is an extremely important social asset, while 74% stated an unattractive smile can affect a person’s chance for success in their career. Because such a great deal of importance is placed on the aesthetic appearance of one’s smile, Dr. Diette says a smile makeover can offer patients a renewed sense of self-confidence and an increasingly positive outlook on life. “A person’s smile often has a tremendous impact on first impressions and relationships in general. I firmly believe ensuring my patients feel good about their smiles instills a great sense of confidence in all walks of life, both personally and professionally.”
To ensure patients considering smile makeovers receive the results they desire, Dr. Diette recommends looking for a dentist with extensive experience that is active in their dental community. He adds that verifying active participation in continuing education courses, and viewing several before-and-after photos should help the patient feel more comfortable with their choice for such a significant procedure. “Comfort is everything when undergoing a smile makeover. Results will be much better if a patient knows the dentist is experienced, and understands what to expect from the procedure.”
