The key to successful cosmetic dental treatment is to tailor the treatment plan to meet the patient’s needs, specifically. Our Cheney cosmetic dentists don’t believe in one-size-fits-all dental care.
Today, we’re going to be reviewing some of the key aesthetic considerations that we keep in mind when working with our patients. We hope that this information helps you get a sense of what aesthetic dental treatment can do for you. Let’s get started!
The first thing that we have to do before beginning treatment is to complete a thorough assessment of the patient’s smile. This helps us understand the ways in which your smile is accumulating wear and tear, and determine whether there are any existing oral health issues that need to be addressed while we improve your dental aesthetics.
As we start to preplan visual changes to your smile, we’ll consider:
- The color of your teeth and/or restorations: healthy enamel is white and somewhat shiny, so achieving this effect is a goal with cosmetic dentistry
- Visible damage: if you have developed small cracks or chips in your teeth, correcting these issues will refresh your smile
- Alignment: our team straightens crooked and crowded teeth using orthodontic treatment as well as dental bonding and porcelain veneers. We can also close gaps in the smile.
- Visual balance: patients with poorly proportioned teeth can benefit from bonding or custom restorations
Some people are able to achieve their dental goals with simple whitening or bonding. Other people combine treatment options in order to complete total smile transformations.
When you meet with our Cheney cosmetic dentists we’ll be able to give you all of the information that you need about aesthetic dentistry, and answer any questions that you may have. We have seen firsthand just how transformative this type of treatment can be for all kinds of dentistry patients!
