Your smile makes the first impact on first meetings. If you think your smile is not as perfect as you’d want it to be, there is dental cosmetic surgery to grant your desire. Cosmetic dentistry can therefore raise your self esteem and increase your confidence from having a fantastic smile. Let’s see the not-so-perfect smiles and find out where you relate to and help you determine if cosmetic dentistry is for you.
The gums or gingiva frame the teeth. A “gummy smile” is when the teeth look short because the gums cover the teeth surface. This problem can be fixed by cosmetic dentistry through a periodontal gum procedure. The surgeon removes the extra gum tissue with a laser or another surgical method and reshapes the gums to a more satisfying appearance. This procedure is also used to fix an uneven gum line.
The gums shrink or recede as we age, giving us a “long tooth” smile. A periodontal disease is also another cause for this occurrence. As the gums recede, parts of the roots of the teeth show and reveal darkened portions along the gum line.
Through a gingivoplasty procedure, the surgeon gets gum tissue from other parts of the mouth and grafts it to extend the gums and cover the exposed roots. The grafted tissue is attached to the existing gums which in time seals that area to display a more natural and youthful look.
Shop For Dentists
You will then need to seek for dentists who may be willing to trade for the dentistry. Depending on your specific skill, you can seek for a cosmetic dentist who is in need of your services. If you are a web designer for example, you can seek dentists who do not have websites. If on the other hand you are an accountant, you can look for smaller dentist offices that outsource accounts work on a temporary basis. One of the easiest way for getting a barter trade deal with a cosmetic dentist is to seek dentists who are new and are just setting up their practice. New offices will always need services here and there. You can also get such barter deals with student dentists.
Write a proposal to dentists
Once you have gotten a list of the possible dentists, you can go ahead and write a proposal to offer a trade-off for the cosmetic dentistry. You can send such a proposal to several dentists and await a response. You can hand deliver and discuss the offer with dentists who are more accessible. You can then negotiate in terms of the trade-off until you get to an amicable arrangement.
Come up with a final written agreement
Once you have come up with an agreement, you can proceed and get the agreement put in writing. You can then go ahead and do your part of the bargain as per the agreement. Bartering is an ideal way of getting a free cosmetic dentistry and therefore, if you cannot afford the operation at the moment, you can as well consider this process.
