e all know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but there is no denying that some people have more admirers than others. There are many aspects that make up a person’s attractiveness and not all involve physical appearance. However, there is still an awful lot of focus on how a person looks. If you were not born with prized features then the good news is that there are countless procedures now available to change your look.
What we sometimes forget though, is that change is not always for the better. People who feel compelled to adjust their look often do not take the time to consider that their new appearance may not be what they want either. We all know of someone, whether personally or in the celebrity world, who was better off before having some work done. I bet many of them would have loved to have had a preview of their end result. If you could try out the changes before committing it would sure help wouldn’t it? After all, many cosmetic procedures cannot be reversed.
Well, in the case of cosmetic dentistry, getting a preview is now an option. No, I am not talking about some altered photo on a computer screen. There is a now a way to try out some new teeth in real life. Cosmalite is a procedure that gives prospective patients a temporary version of their enhanced smile to try out before making the effect more permanent.
The procedure itself seems fairly straightforward. The patient goes for a consultation, during which, molds are taken. Then the acrylic ‘smile’ is created and applied to your teeth. Lasting only about a week, this is not a long term fix. It is just meant to give patients a preview or provide a short-term enhancement for a special event.
Cosmalite costs about $700, but the amount can be applied to the cost of porcelain veneers should the patient ultimately choose to go ahead with the more permanent procedure.
