Not Every Case of Dissatisfaction With a Cosmetic Dental Procedure Is Winnable
Nonetheless, in a high number of cases, the failure of cosmetic dental procedures, not only in terms of not achieving their goals but in terms of resulting in serious medical issues, is caused by the negligence or ineptitude of the dentist.
The first thing to do if you believe you have been mistreated by a cosmetic dentist is to get in touch with Lance Ehrenberg for a free consultation. He knows all the right questions to ask to determine whether or not you have a viable malpractice claim.
How to Protect Yourself From Incompetence and Errors
A major mistake made by many patients who come to us after the fact is accepting the offer of their regular dentist to provide aesthetic services. This is yet another case of “buyer beware.” Unless dentists are primarily cosmetic dentists, they may not have the knowledge, training or extensive experience necessary to produce optimal results. It is important to seek a cosmetic dentist with excellent credentials and a history of satisfied patients if you are planning to invest in a cosmetic procedure.
