The dental consultation
Are you thinking of getting some dentistry done and need to have at least one or two consultations with dentists? Are there questions that you should be asking your dentist but you are reluctant? We have found that most patients are uncomfortable asking doctors how many times they have done this procedure. Or more importantly, do they have before and after images of their cases? Look for at least 10 examples of mouth reconstructions.
If you are considering something as important as significant dentistry, this is not what you want to do! Your questions should be invited and welcomed. You must be able to ask questions and be heard by your dentist. Does your dentist listen to you? The more educated you feel about how we can guide your smile in a direction toward optimal beauty, the easier it becomes for us to work together toward that goal!

At your dental consultation, Dr. Fondriest can answer all your questions and help you decide on a dental treatment plan that will address your primary concerns and objectives. A smile upgrade might include procedures like teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, white crowns and fillings, and dental implants that look and feel natural. Before undergoing significant dentistry, underlying oral health issues, like TMJ disorder, dental decay, gum disease, and malocclusion should be addressed. By eliminating these problems prior to cosmetic improvements, Dr. Fondriest will ensure that your new smile is designed to last.
How Does Dental Smile Design Work?
You might understand when your cosmetic dentist tells you that we provide you with artistic smile design that it means we provide custom dental work. However, you always hear from dentists that the work is custom, so you may not realize that the way we practice is quite unique. When we talk about smile design, we mean many things, including but not limited to the following:
- It is an interview exploring the full extent of your hopes for your smile
- A full visual, photographic, and possibly video documentation of your smile, face, lips, and smile movement
- We rely on computer analysis for a clearer idea of what we can accomplish and how we may do so
- We collaborate with you to guide you toward your most beautiful smile
