Cosmetic Dentistry Questions Answered By Our Glendale Dentists

Written by Dr. McKay on Mar 7, 2016

Our Glendale cosmetic dentists believe that it is vitally important that we arm our dental patients with as much information as possible. When patients have the information that they need, they are able to make the best decisions for their smiles.

So, with that in mind, today we are answering common questions about cosmetic dentistry options. Let’s get started!

Q: How will I know what kind of treatment is going to work for me?

A: Our dental team is here to help you do this very thing! Here are some of the factors we’ll take into account when walking you through the treatment process: the current health of your smile; you dream aesthetic results; your treatment timeline; your budget; what kind of post-treatment maintenance you prefer. We know that cosmetic dentistry treatment can seem overwhelming, but don’t panic!

Q: What happens to my smile after I’ve improved it with cosmetic dentistry?
A: The answer to this question will change depending on what treatments you undergo. If, for example, you perfect your smile with LUMINEERS, your cosmetic restorations will likely stay looking bright and fresh for years. This is because LUMINEERS are crafted to be resistant to surface stains. On the other hand, if you whiten your natural enamel with professional whitening treatments, you will probably want to undergo touch up treatments every few years or so.

Q: What happens at a cosmetic dentistry consultation?

A: When our dental team meets with you we will assess the health of your smile, in order to determine whether your teeth are healthy enough to undergo treatment. We’ll also talk to you about how you’d like to improve your smile; with this information we can give you an idea of what types of treatments might be beneficial for you.

As always, please free to call our Glendale cosmetic dentists if you want to ask specific questions of your own, or if you’d like to schedule a consultation!
