Have you ever gotten a steal 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 car would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a dud.
The same is true of substandard dental work. You have probably received sleek postcard ads that advertise amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, crowns, white fillings, and dental implants. The prices may be attractive, 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 furnish substandard work—we are just cautioning patients not to select 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 end up with substandard porcelain veneers?
The dentist may be inexperienced and make mistakes: improper placement, dissatisfactory color matching, and bite complications. The materials may be deficient: unnatural color, prone to breaking, veneers pop off. The lab techs that create the restorations may turn out substandard work: unnatural color, poor fit.
