The crowns on my teeth implants look fake. I’ve had them for almost three years and I hate them. My dentist says that I’m being too picky, and that I should give it some time. How much more time do I need after three years? Am I being unreasonable, or am I right to make an appointment with a cosmetic dentist? – Nyesha T., New Orleans – Metairie
A cosmetic dentist has appreciation for aesthetics. He or she wants you to have a beautiful smile that you love—not one that you have to get used to in order to like it. When the crowns on your dental implants don’t look natural, a cosmetic dentist can help.
Porcelain crowns can and should have the translucency and color of your natural teeth. And when you have dental implants, no one should be able to tell that they are replacement teeth.
A cosmetic dentist will work with you to ensure that you love the look of your new smile.
