This lady came to our office saying that she wanted to improve her smile but was unsure as to how to do it. She looked in the mirror and didn't like what she saw and after a thorough analysis we determined that her smile was too narrow for her face and overly emphasized only the 2 front teeth. This could only be performed by a dentist extensively trained in cosmetics. We placed porcelain veneers to extend her smile and improve the proportion of her teeth. Remember, just because the sign says "cosmetic dentist" doesn't always mean they have taken any special education to qualify as a true expert.
