Doctor Bill Ligon on Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is a big part of our practice. We get lots of referrals from previous patients that say we’ve done crowns on their six anterior teeth and people look great after that. We use great dental labs. That’s a big point – that you’re using a quality dental lab that uses quality materials. The people, the lab techs, we work hand in hand with them, and we’re able to relay to them what we want, what the patient wants. We have a smile style guide, for example, that shows all the different teeth setups that you can possibly have as far as the edges of the teeth being rounded or squared. Everyone has different opinions on what looks good to them, and we like to let them tell us. They look at a book and say, “Hey, I want my smile to look like that. I want my teeth to be shaped like this.” As far as that and the shade of everything, shade of your teeth and all that, we can achieve great results working like that.
