Getting work done on front teeth is scary! Is it going to match? Will it look right on me? If you do decide to get treatment on these front teeth, here are some things to keep in mind.
1) Choose your color wisely. Unlike natural teeth enamel, fillings and crowns do not change color. That means, if you plan to get whiter teeth in the future, bleaching is essential prior to getting treatment done on a front tooth. Make sure you tell your doctor your intentions prior to starting.
2) Ask for a trial period. Do I like this color? Does this shape match my smile? It's hard to know for sure until you go out and try. We offer options to temporarily shape your teeth with different colors to ensure you like it before you commit.
