Have you ever gotten a deal on a used car that turned out to be a lemon? After a couple years of nonstop repairs, you realized that it ended up costing as much as a new car would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a a clunker.
The same is true of inferior dental work. You have probably received shiny postcard ads that advertise amazing inflicts on cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, crowns, white fillings, and dental implants. The prices may be enticing, but make certain you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t trying to imply that all dental practices that proclaim low procedure prices in their ads deliver inferior work – we are just cautioning patients not to decide on a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike an automobile, you can’t sell your smile and buy a new one.
We will use porcelain veneers as an example. What can go amiss if you fall victim to substandard porcelain veneers?
- The dentist may be inexperienced and make mistakes: improper placement, poor color matching, bite complications.
- The materials may be inferior: unnatural color, prone to breaking, veneers pop off.
- The lab techs that create the restorations may turn out poor quality work: unnatural color, poor fit.
