You might be thinking to yourself, “I know I want to give my smile a makeover, but I am not sure what it will take to get there.”
You’re not alone. According to IBISWorld, 69% of adults ages 35-44 have lost at least one tooth as a result of decay, gum disease, and failed root canals. As a result, many adults reach out to a cosmetic dentist in order to fix their smile and give them the confidence that they want.
A cosmetic dentist will hold a consultation with you before you begin any type of treatment or procedure. This will allow both you and your cosmetic dentist to assess what needs to be done in order to improve your smile.
Here at Friendly Dentistry, your consultation is a time for your cosmetic dentist to listen to you. We know that your needs come first and we want you to walk away with the smile you’ve always wanted.
Your consultation is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you have. Here are some great examples:
- Can I see some before and after pictures of this particular procedure?
- Are there any special care instructions for my procedure?
- How much will this cost? Are there financing options available?
- How long will this treatment last?
During a consultation at Friendly Dentistry, you will also have x-rays and tests done to assess your smile’s needs. Your cosmetic dentist will be able to tailor aspects of your treatment to your unique smile. Along with these tests, you will be able to discuss the plan for treatment. This might include how long the process will take, and how many visits you need in order to complete the treatment.
Another topic that will come up in your consultation will be pain management. Friendly Dentistry specializes in sedation dentistry, even for routine cleanings. This will help you through your cosmetic appointments if you have a fear of the dentist, or are overly sensitive to tooth pain. This may or may not be needed for your cosmetic dentistry procedure, but it’s something you will want to speak with your cosmetic dentist about.
Whether you’re looking to have your teeth whitened, get veneers, or just generally refresh your smile, Friendly Dentistry can help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
