Written by Dr. McKay on Aug 24, 2021

Our Glendale cosmetic dentists are committed to providing patient-centered, comprehensive care that improves our patients’ lives. With that in mind, we have put together this information for you, our patient, about aesthetic priorities and possibilities. Keep reading to learn more about the things we focus on when building a treatment plan… 

Restore Dental Health

The most important priority when planning aesthetic treatment is to make sure that our dental team addresses any existing oral health issues right away. We don’t believe in taking half-steps to make your smile look better, without ensuring that it has a healthy foundation. Oral health problems like damaged enamel, periodontal disease, and tooth infections can be treated with solutions that are both health-boosting and attractive. 

Proportions Matter 

A balanced and harmonious smile looks great and functions healthily. Generally speaking, our goal is to help our patients achieve smiles that are fairly symmetrical. We also refine teeth that are disproportionately large or small, so that your smile looks cohesive and seamless.

Youthful Refresh

Most of us associate white, bright enamel with youth and health. As time goes on, our teeth tend to accumulate stains, and our dental enamel thins. Whitening your teeth either with topical whitening gels or treatments like dental bonding, can immediately take years off of the appearance of your smile.

As you can see, building a treatment plan is a whole-patient endeavor. Our Glendale dentists are here to answer any questions you may have and to provide you with any guidance and information that may be helpful to you. We look forward to speaking with you!
