Ready to turn your smile into a masterpiece? It all starts with a chat with your cosmetic dentist! This sit-down is like the roadmap to your dream smile – they assess your oral health, ask about your goals, and then craft a plan just for you. Are you feeling a bit jittery? That’s completely normal! Here’s what to expect during this initial meeting.
Picking Your Cosmetic Dental
Think of cosmetic dentistry like a menu with tons of options. Ever heard of veneers? They’re like magic for stains, chips, and gaps. Or how about metal-free restorations? These blend in with your natural teeth seamlessly. And let’s not forget teeth whitening, giving you a dazzling smile that’s up to 8 shades brighter. Your smile, your rules.
Ensure Your Smile is Healthy
Before diving into the fancy stuff, your base (your teeth and gums) needs to be rock-solid. It’s not just about the pretty stuff – it’s about keeping the foundation strong. Although cosmetic touch-ups can make your smile pop, tackling issues like decay is just as important to dodge any dental surprises.
Ask About Dental Sedation
Wondering if cosmetic dentistry hurts? Don’t worry! Your dentist can use numbing agents to keep you comfortable during your treatment. You might feel some pressure or odd sensations, but nothing too extreme. And if there’s any tenderness post-procedure, be sure to take some over-the-counter pain relief and stick to soft foods.
Longevity of Results
How long will your new smile last? Your dentist will let you know how long your specific treatment will last. They’ll also provide instructions on how to maintain your results as long as possible. Of course, this involves regular brushing and flossing.
Explore Your Financing Options
Wondering if insurance covers your cosmetic transformation? Usually, it doesn’t, but there could be exceptions for medically necessary procedures. While insurance might cover the consultation or costs of preliminary treatments, many dental practices offer third-party financing options like CareCredit and LendingClub. These allow you to split up the bill into manageable monthly payments.
