Our Cheney cosmetic dentists believe that it’s crucial to put time and energy into thoroughly pre-planning treatment before we commit to a plan with our patients. There are so many considerations that come along with aesthetic dental treatment, and it can sometimes feel overwhelming for patients to assess these treatments by themselves. So, we’re here to give you some more information about how can evaluate aesthetic options.
Before we do anything, our dental team will evaluate the current state of your smile. We’re checking to see how healthy your teeth and gums are; if you’re dealing with existing damage, we may need to correct these issues before we move forward. At this point we’ll also talk to you about your dental goals, and what your dream smile looks like!
It’s also important to consider how long you have to invest in the treatment process. Some of our patients choose to pursue cosmetic treatment because they are preparing for a special event. So, if you have a wedding or reunion coming up, let us know! We’ll talk to you about what kinds of treatments can help you see results right away.
Keep in mind that, in order to retain results long-term, you’ll need to keep up with some level of post-treatment maintenance. Aesthetic treatments like veneers are very durable, and resistant to staining, so they are very low-maintenance. If you choose professional dental whitening, on the other hand, you’ll need to repeat the whitening process regularly in order to keep stains at bay.
Perhaps one of the most important considerations for many patients is price. The truth is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to improve the appearance of your smile. For example, dental whitening and dental bonding are both quite affordable.
As always, our Cheney cosmetic dentists are here to give you all of the information and support that you need to achieve your dream smile. Get started by calling our office, or using the Contact Us page on our website!
