While others may not notice specifically what type of dental work has been done, they may observe that you seem happier or generally healthier.

- How long has the cosmetic dentist been performing the specific procedure(s) you are considering and how long has he been a licensed dentist?
- Does the dentist have before and after photos of other patients who have a smile situation similar to your own?
- Are you a good candidate for the type of procedure you wish to have?
- What will your smile look like after the procedure?
- How long will the procedure take and how many office visits will be required?
- What are the potential risks and complications?
- Will anesthesia be used during the procedure?
- What should I expect while I recover?
