Here’s a word to the wise from the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria VA – and it begins with an analogy.
Have you ever bought a used car that turned out to be a lemon? It seemed like a deal at the time, but after a few years of ongoing repairs, you realized that it ended up costing as much as a new car.
The same is true of deficient dental work.
You have probably received glossy postcard ads that proclaim amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry. The prices may be attractive, but be sure you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t saying that all dental practices that publicize low prices do poor work—we are just cautioning patients not to opt for a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike a car, you can’t sell your smile and buy a new one.
If you are considering a smile redesign, call us at Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry first.
During your consultation, you will learn about our experience, techniques, specialty training, and the number of procedures performed. You will learn about the best materials for the restorations and receive specifics about the dental lab we use. We can also provide references if requested. And, of course, we will review how much each procedure will cost.
