Have you ever gotten a killer 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 auto would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a clunker.
The same is true of deficient dental work. You have probably received glossy postcard ads that proclaim amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, crowns, white fillings, and dental implants. The prices may be appealing, but make sure 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 deliver deficient work—we are just cautioning patients not to decide on 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 wrong 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 substandard: unnatural color, prone to breaking, veneers pop off. The lab techs that create the restorations may turn out shoddy work: unnatural color, poor fit.
