There are a variety of reasons for cosmetic dentistry but Dr. Stephen Poss finds that the biggest one is self-esteem. Cosmetic dentistry gives people confidence, he says.
In his office in Brentwood Tennessee, Dr. Poss lays out an architectural plan, where he talks with the patient about their smile, as well as shape and color. He then puts temporary veneers on after the contouring is done, so they can go home and inspect this temporary version, in case they want to make any changes. At the final visit, he places the veneers on with a preview gel to make sure it's exactly what the patient wants. "There are no surprises, as the patient is in control with the way they want their smile to look," Dr. Poss says.
There are many patients in his practice that have had veneers for over 20 years and his practice offers a limited lifetime warranty on all of their work.
