Q: How much does it cost to get a Perfect New Smile?
A: Like most services, cost varies based on the amount of time required and the difficulty of the procedure(s). Generally, improving a smile requires a combination of treatment options such as bleaching, reshaping gums, and using bonded materials (resin or porcelain) to improve the appearance of the teeth. A great way to start is by having a consultation with a cosmetologist to determine how you can reach your goals. Improving your smile is an investment in you.
Q: What are the benefits of visiting a cosmetic dentist?
A: A perfect new smile should improve your self-confidence, which can have a positive impact on the personal, social and professional aspects of your life. Cosmetic dentistry is not just about pretty smiles though, it is making your new smile to become a part of your face and eventually your personality. New techniques and materials are available for back teeth as well as those seen when you smile. Now your mouth can look great, get healthy, and function better, all at the same time.
Q: How many visits will it take to improve my smile?
A: This varies with each individual, depending on the need and existing situation. Sometimes, you can dramatically improve your oral health and appearance in just a couple of visits. Most cosmetic dentists will work to make your treatment as convenient as possible, perhaps choosing slightly longer visits instead of frequent trips to the office. Discuss your goals and concerns with your dentist so the best plan can be developed for your individual situation. If you start today, a new smile can be yours sooner than you think!!!!
Q: What will my perfect new smile look like?
A : Your cosmetic dentist will work with you in choosing the right look for you. A smile enhancement can be made to look both dramatic and natural. Your dentist can use photographs (in a process called cosmetic imaging) and models to show you what to expect. Our cosmetic dentist will put trial materials directly on your teeth before starting to help you visualize the change. Ask your dentist what can be done to give you the smile you desire today!
Q: Is my new smile permanent?
A: With good home care, following the dentist’s instructions and regular visits, modern materials can last for many years, and possibly decades. Like most things, excellent maintenance will extend the life of your dental restorations.
