Any dental treatment that can be seen in your smile has a tremendous effect on your facial appearance and your self-esteem. Dr. Don Mungcal urges women and men in the Los Angeles area to choose their options in cosmetic dentistry carefully for an ideal match to their needs.
Dangers of DIY
We are all enticed by the opportunity to save money on products with fantastic advertising claims. In the case of dental treatment, though, the elevated risk and low reward are seldom worth it. For example, consider teeth whitening products sold in retail stores. They may cost less upfront than professional whitening treatment from your dentist, but the price adds up quickly as you try one brand after another with unsatisfactory results. They do not contain prescription-strength bleaching ingredients that truly resolve discoloration. Without the oversight of a trained dental team, you could experience excessive sensitivity or damage to teeth or soft tissues.
Dental school practice
Many universities with dental schools offer low-cost treatment, including cosmetic services, as hands-on training for students. It is important to understand that yours may be the first such procedure this student has performed. In addition, if several visits are required, a different dentist may complete treatment. There is usually no real course of action if you are not satisfied with results.
