Enhancing Your Smile Shouldn’t Be Stressful

sleeping patientImproving the appearance of your smile can involve a wide range of treatments in cosmetic dentistry, from simple bonding or teeth whitening to a full smile makeover with porcelain veneers or dental implants. Unfortunately, there are many adults who avoid cosmetic dentistry because they assume it is a stressful or painful process. Regardless of whether you are afraid of the time commitment, the expense or the discomfort, cosmetic dentistry is far from stressful. In fact, we make it a positive and highly rewarding experience at Dream Dentist.

Results in Just One or Two Visits

Think you don’t have time to makeover your smile? Many patients falsely assume that receiving cosmetic dentistry is a lengthy process that requires multiple office visits. For the majority of cases, this is simply not true. While cosmetic bonding and teeth whitening only take one brief office visit, even more complex smile makeovers using porcelain veneers can be complete in just two appointments. Unless you are undergoing a full mouth reconstruction (requiring replacement of teeth or several different treatments), you shouldn’t have to sacrifice much of your schedule to attain a beautiful new smile.

Affordable Treatment Options

Is the cost of cosmetic dentistry holding you back? Cosmetic enhancements, whether to your teeth or other parts of your body, are typically not covered under your insurance plan. This causes many patients to shy away from revamping their smile. You should know, however, that there are some highly effective cosmetic dental services that are affordable. Services such as professional teeth whitening and bonding can provide dramatic improvements to your teeth and even make you look years younger. In addition, if you need help financing a smile makeover, there are often payment plans available to ease your budget burdens.

Options in Sedation Dentistry

If you have dental anxiety that makes it difficult to attend your regular dental checkups, you may be counting yourself out of any “elective” office visits such as those for cosmetic treatments. However, just like a root canal or dental filling, you can choose sedation dentistry for your cosmetic treatment. There’s no reason why you can’t have nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) for your professional teeth whitening session if dental anxiety has been holding you back. Dream Dentist uniquely offers a wide range of sedation levels administered by a licensed IV Sedation Dentist.

What is keeping you from choosing cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile? Whether you have teeth that are stained, gapped, chipped or otherwise unsightly, we have cosmetic treatments to fix it. Contrary to what you may think, cosmetic dentistry is not a stressful experience. Attaining a more attractive smile can be quick, affordable and comfortable!  Call today to schedule your cosmetic dentistry evaluation with Dr. Sarah Thompson at Dream Dentist.
