Dr. Nammy Patel, founder of Green Dentistry in San Francisco, and author of the bestselling book Age With Style— A Guide to a Youthful Smile and Healthy Living, discusses how long a smile design takes.
Smile design can take as little as an hour. The first thing that happens is you come in, we sit down, we look at your medical history, we look at your concerns, we look at what is it that you want to change. Is it the size, shape or color of your teeth? Then we figure out what is the best and most ideal solution for you and then we’ll go over costs, the timeline it takes, also the advantages and disadvantages of a technique, so that you can be in the driver’s seat and find what is best for you.
