Have you ever gotten a deal on a used car that turned out to be a lemon? After a couple years of continual repairs, you realized that it ended up costing as much as a new automobile would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a a clunker.
The same is true of substandard dental work. You have probably received sleek postcard ads that proclaim amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, crowns, white fillings, and dental implants. The prices may be tempting, but make certain you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t trying to imply that all dental practices that advertise low procedure prices in their ads furnish deficient work—we are just cautioning patients not to choose a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike a vehicle, 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, dissatisfactory 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 inferior work: unnatural color, and poor fit.
