If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive cosmetic dental work in the Los Altos area, here are four considerations from the Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry.
All At Once Or Over Time?
At Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry, our Los Altos smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. We develop a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.
Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation or ‘sleep’ dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most dental patients. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Reach out today to discuss dental financing options in Los Altos.
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the necessary healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.
Our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.
