Ready to get started with your cosmetic dental treatment? Determining your priorities before beginning will help you and Dr. Robin create the best possible treatment plan. We encourage our patients to do some reflection before their cosmetic consultation so that they’re able to voice their needs and preferences. No matter your smile makeover, we strive to provide ideal cosmetic treatment.
The 3 Aspects of Ideal Cosmetic Treatment
“Ideal” dental treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs and expectations. There is no universal definition of what that treatment is like. But there are a few factors that lead to a satisfied patient. Your cosmetic treatment should be:
- Comfortable – You should never feel anxious in the dental chair. If you have problems receiving dental treatment, or feel nervous in the office, please, let Metro Smiles’ staff know. There may be a sedation option that will soothe you and help you feel calm. We always provide dental anesthesia when there is a chance of discomfort, so there’s no chance of you feeling pain. Your treatment should help you form a positive association with dentistry of all kinds.
- Communicative – Determining your future smile involves a collaboration between yourself and Dr. Robin. You will work together to choose treatments that result in teeth you can’t wait to show off. If you ever have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to voice them.
- Satisfying – When we say satisfying, we mean it on every level, at every moment of treatment. From your initial consultation to your results, you should be pleased with each step of the cosmetic process. Your final smile should be the one that you set out to create; the perfect smile that you’ve been envisioning. Dr. Robin and her team will do whatever is necessary to get you to that final, happy place.
Centennial Smile Makeovers
Before beginning treatment, you’ll need to decide exactly what it is that you want to change about your teeth (and how you want to effect that change). The following questions help to kickstart the brainstorm:
What would you like your smile to look like?
The answer to this is twofold. You’ll need to think about what you’d like to change about your teeth (what you find lacking about your smile), and also the nature of those changes (what you want for your future smile). Consider other smiles that you admire. Look at friends, family members, and celebrities to find a grin that really speaks to you. Dr. Robin will help you decide on the smile that’s going to look best with your facial structure, as well as the appropriate shade of your brightened teeth.
What are you looking to invest in cosmetic treatment?
This question helps you consider the amount of time, money, and energy you’re ready to put into treatment. Depending on your level of commitment, there are various treatments that may be better- or worse-suited to your needs. While some cosmetic treatments are available at cheaper prices and with speedier procedures, remember those also tend to offer less enduring results.
Are you anxious about dental treatment?
If you’re nervous about having your teeth prepped, it may be best to choose non-invasive cosmetic treatments like whitening or bonding. Also, ask Dr. Robin about dental sedation to help put your nerves to rest.
