O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentist Walks You Through Considerations Before Choosing Aesthetic Treatments

When working with patients who are pursuing cosmetic dentistry treatments, our O’Fallon dentists provide our patients with all of the information that they need to make good decisions for their smiles. It is best, when evaluating different treatments, to think about how various treatments will suit your different needs. Today we are going to talk you through some of the considerations we keep in mind when working with patients.


This is a very important factor! Many people want to achieve certain visible results in time for events like weddings or reunions. Make sure to let our dental team know if this is the case for you! We will help you choose a treatment that works for your schedule.


The great thing about modern cosmetic dentistry options is that there are treatments available for a range of budgets. Our dental team is here to help you figure out which treatments are appropriate for your budget, and which work with your insurance. There are also payment plans that can make treatment accessible for you.

Post-treatment care

Here is something that many people don’t initially realize: different cosmetic treatments require different levels (and types) maintenance once you’ve achieved results. For example, professional dental whitening treatments usually require follow-up treatments every six months or year, or so. On the other hand, dental bonding is resistant to discoloration, and not responsive to whitening treatments.

Treatment process

You may also prefer one treatment over another based on what it is like to complete the treatment. Whitening treatments, for example, are non-invasive, while veneers require our team to shave away some dental enamel.
