aspect. Close to 75% of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt

3. Are you a good candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Many sites will give you a list of questions to ask yourself, that can help you decide if you think you are a good candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry. Unfortunately, the only people that can make that decision is you, and your dentist. No one else, no other site nor magazine, nor TV program, can make you enhance your smile. Only you can do that.
One comment emailed to us frequently after reading this question, is, “the best way to know if you are a good candidate for this is to ask yourself, 1. Are you 100% happy with your smile?” It really is a good question though. If you are 100% happy, that is great. If you are not, then you can make a change. It is easier than ever to enhance your smile. You can contact a surgeon here.

5. What about my dental insurance? Will it cover this?
From a ton of research, and constant surveying of dentists, most dental insurances have a maximum benefit of anywhere from $800 to $2,300 dollars. This can obviously, usually cover some of your expenses. However, most of the cosmetic dentistry is considered not mandatory, and therefore not covered by insurance. The basic fact is, the insurance companies, as we all know, want to take care of you at the lowest cost possible, not really the best service or option available for you.
You would be very surprised at how much your dentist can, and will work with you. All dentists found on MyDentistUSA.com share one common belief, that the patient comes first. We promise you, that we will do everything within reason, to make your dreams come true, and enhance your smile.

and without constant education, you can not be sure that your dentist
knows the latest techniques, methods and equipment.
