Have you ever gotten a bargain on a used car that turned out to be a lemon? After a couple years of endless 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, but you won’t have to worry about that with the dentists at Durham Dental Group.
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 enticing, but make certain you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t trying to imply that all dental practices that publicize low procedure prices in their ads provide unsatisfactory work—we are just cautioning patients not to settle upon a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike a car, 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, inadequate 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, poor fit.
