Congratulations on taking the first steps in your smile makeover! You want to make sure you take the right steps to ensure the best possible results – and ones that will help your smile stand out from the rest. To do that, you want to consider a few different things:
Get your oral health in check first.
If you have gum disease, it could cause your newly made-over teeth to lose bone support and eventually fall out. That’s why you need to be sure that oral hygiene is your #1 priority. Regular dental cleanings and check-ups can help you keep your smile healthy and eliminate problems like swollen, bleeding gum tissues. Trying to treat teeth with veneers or porcelain crowns when infected gums are present could lead to less-than-desirable results later on.
Find out what your options are.
Chances are you have more than just one or two choices for improving your smile. For instance, you could consider veneers or porcelain crowns. Or maybe you want to discuss orthodontic therapy and bonding. Your dentist will discuss the advantages of each type of option so that you can choose the ones that are best for your personal needs.
Consider combining treatments.
It’s usually not the case that you have to do all of one thing and not the other. Many times it’s possible to combine treatments, such as whitening and bonding for an overall impact. Talk to your dentist about using two or more different types of cosmetic procedures to paint a beautiful smile one tooth at a time.
Your customized treatment plan will outline all of the recommended procedures and give you a timeframe as to how long they will take to complete. Schedule your consultation today!
