Cosmetic dentistry can help you improve your smile. Many patients use cosmetic dental treatments to repair and restore damaged teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, stained teeth, or even fix unwanted gaps.
From cosmetic fillings, teeth whitening, tooth resurfacing, dental implants, and dental veneers to bonding and crowns, here at DeSanti & Linden Dentistry, we have an array of cosmetic dental treatments to give you a smile upgrade!
To decide which dental solution is best for you, we recommend booking a consultation to discuss the right procedure. Read on to learn more, including what to expect from your cosmetic dental consultation.
What Happens During the Cosmetic Dental Consultation?
To kick off the process of cosmetic dental treatment, a consultation is required. It’s best to take advantage of the consultation appointment so that you can discuss your thoughts and ideas with the dentist. From there, your dental professional can put together a treatment plan that suits your needs and unique oral features. Along with examining your teeth, you might also need to have x-rays or dental impressions taken.
This consultation allows patients to explain to their dentist what they want the outcome to be. And thanks to computer imagery, patients can often see the end results of their teeth in a mock-up, so they can talk through any changes or alterations, perfecting their dream smile.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help You?
Cosmetic dental treatments are unique to each patient. Simply whitening teeth to remove stains might be enough for one patient, while others struggling with something more serious, like teeth straightening, might need more extensive assistance.
Depending on the type of treatment, some procedures take longer than others, as well. For example, some cosmetic dental treatments can take less than an hour, and others can be more time-consuming, executed in phases and across several appointments. This is something that will be discussed in the consultation so that patients have a complete understanding of their treatment plan before it begins.
Weighing the Risks
While your dentist will chat with you about the advantages and benefits of your procedure, it’s essential to learn about any possible risks as well. This is especially important if the cosmetic dental treatment is invasive. Of course, dentists will do their best to reduce any potential risks, but it’s still essential for the patient to fully understand what the process entails.
