The first appointment is basically a consultation, during which you discuss with Dr Mulgrew what you don’t like and what you would like to change about your smile. Your bite and your teeth are subsequently assessed and all necessary measures, photographs, x-rays and impressions are taken. Dr Mulgrew will then move on to explain the options available to you, and the risks and benefits of each of them. He will also give you an idea about how long the treatment will take as well as about the total investment involved. It’s up to you from there: all you need to do is decide whether and how you wish to proceed.
