Here Are Some Of The Factors Our O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentists Consider When Planning Treatment

Improving the appearance of your smile can make a huge difference to your day to day life. Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists know that this type of treatment is not something to be taken lightly or approached with a blasé attitude. That is why we go through an extensive planning process prior to starting treatment with our patients. In today’s article, we’re discussing the factors and priorities that we consider when creating a cosmetic treatment plan. Let’s get started!

Obviously, as we begin to craft a treatment plan for an individual patient, we start by understanding the patient’s aesthetic goals. Maybe you want to whiten your teeth, close gaps between your teeth, get a straighter smile, or all three! No matter what your specific goals, our team is here to help.

We also need to have a clear understanding of your ideal timeline. If you are trying to refresh your smile before a big event, like a wedding or a reunion, please let us know—we offer cosmetic treatments to fit a wide variety of timelines.

It is imperative that, as we create your treatment plan, we also address any underlying health or structural problems with your smile. Consider this: we can place a custom dental crown to improve the appearance of your tooth, but if this crown is not shaped and sized correctly, it could contribute to bite dysfunction. As we improve your dental aesthetics, we’ll also be considering how any aesthetic treatments will affect how your smile functions.

Finally, our team is here to help dental patients benefit from accessible and cost-effective dental solutions. Some aesthetic treatments are more affordable than other; dental bonding, for example, is less expensive than other treatments dental veneers. When you meet with our team we’ll be able to give you the breakdown on your treatment options and their associated costs.

Our O’Fallon dentists have found that when patients put in the time to understand all of their treatment options before moving forward, they end up with results that they love. So, give our dental team a call, and schedule your personal consultation, to get started.
