top-5-cosmetic-dentistry-1In the first part of our blog series we discussed how cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile. Our talented cosmetic dentists can evaluate your needs and develop a personalized treatment plan during your initial consultation. Depending on your goals, certain cosmetic dental options can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth in just one appointment!

Here are the rest of the top five things you should know about cosmetic dentistry:

#3. Good cosmetic dentists will prepare and discuss your treatment plan with you ahead of time, and they will be skilled with a number of advanced procedures.

You should feel comfortable every step of the way and understand how the treatment will benefit your smile. Good cosmetic dentists will listen closely to any and all questions and concerns you may have, and develop a treatment plan that is customized to your needs. Options such as porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding, recontouring, teeth whitening, and Invisalign® orthodontics are popular treatments because of their ability to significantly improve the look of one’s smile.

#4. Many new smiles can be “tried on” beforehand to help you decide which one is right for you.

Our dentist can give you a preview of your potential smile before treatment. This “try it before you buy it” method allows you to evaluate how your smile may look after the procedure, giving you useful insight and the ability to provide feedback on what you like or don’t like.

#5. Good cosmetic dentistry will allow you to enjoy all of your favorite foods. Plus, If you clench or grind your teeth in your sleep, a nighttime mouth guard can help protect your new smile from wear and tear.
