A good dentist uses the proper dentistry procedures to correct the problems in the mouths of their patients. A good dentist will also recognize when a patient needs dental procedures that they are not qualified to perform. When this is the case a good dentist will refer their patients to other dental practices that can perform the proper dentistry procedures for them.


Proper dentistry procedures are the procedures that will correct your condition, that you can afford, and that you are comfortable having. You and your dentist must work together to decide which procedures you are going to have done, and which procedures you will have to wait to have done.


It is your prerogative to tell a dentist that you do not want to have a procedure done, or that you would prefer another procedure instead of the one that the dentist is suggesting. You must be willing to take the responsibility if the procedure you are refusing would have been the better one for you. Your dentist can only suggest what you need to do. It is up to you to follow their advice.


If you have the right procedures performed to correct the problems you have there is a good chance that you will not have the problem again. If you choose the wrong procedure then you may find yourself back at the dentist getting the problem worked on again.


When you have discolored teeth then the procedures that are used to correct these are cleanings, tooth whitening gels, and porcelain veneers. If you need veneers and simply choose to have tooth whitening gels applies you will not get the results you desire. If a tooth whitening gel would fix your condition and you choose to get veneers then you are spending more money than you need to.


If you have one missing tooth then you could get a dental implant to correct the problem. The implant will stay in place without damaging the teeth around it. If you choose to bridge work, or a partial plate instead of a dental implant, then a wire will be placed around one of the surrounding teeth to hold the bridge in place. This wire will eventually wear through the enamel of the supporting tooth and cause the supporting tooth to need repair. The dental implant cost more initially, but in the long run the dental implant could save you a lot of pain, and money.


To be certain that you get the right procedures done you must trust the dentist you see. Find a dental clinic that you like and see the dentist in that clinic once every six months. You can build a trust up between you, and the dentist, so that you will value their opinion when they suggest a procedure. This also allows the dentist to get to know you so they can help you choose specialist in other areas of dentistry should you ever need to. Your regular dentist will be able to tell you all of the pros and cons of each procedure, and they will be able to recommend the procedures they feel are best for you.
