Improving the appearance of your smile is easier than ever before thanks to a number of advancements in dental technology. With so many options available to you, it’s important to take the time assess all of the possibilities, and how they will respectively meet your needs.
When our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists meet with our patients, we encourage them to keep a few key considerations in mind.
The first thing to share with your dental team is whether you are wanting to achieve aesthetic results in time for a special event, like a wedding or a reunion. We offer a number of cosmetic treatments that deliver results in just one or two appointments, so it is certainly possible to meet tight deadlines.
The next thing to consider is whether using one versatile treatment is more efficient for you than undergoing multiple individual treatments. The dental veneer is a prime example of a versatile dental option; with veneers, you can close gaps between your teeth, make a misaligned smile look straighter, and cover damaged or unsightly enamel. So, for many patients who want to achieve smile transformations, versatile, efficient treatments are hugely beneficial.
It’s also important to keep in mind that different treatments age differently, and require various levels of upkeep in order to maintain results. If you whiten your smile with professional dental whitening, for example, be prepared to repeat this procedure semi-annually or annually in order to keep your smile looking white and fresh. Other whitening options, like bonding and veneers, will not require this type of post-treatment care.
Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists are here to help you gather all of the information and you need, and weigh the pros and cons of each treatment. Together we can build a treatment plan that truly works for you and your smile!
