When people come to our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists, our dental team works with them to help them identify, and address the aesthetic issues with their smiles. Today we are going to be talking more about the process that we go through in order to help patients make great decisions for their smiles!
The first thing that we do is to perform an oral health assessment on the patient, in order to determine how his or her smile is currently functioning. This assessment allows us to identify any spots of decay or damage in the person’s smile. Before we begin any cosmetic treatment, we need to make sure that the dental and gum tissues are healthy enough for treatment.
Next we interview the patients about his or her aesthetic wishes. What kinds of things bother you about the way your smile looks right now? What does your dream smile look like? What is your ideal timeline? What is your budget? What kind of post-treatment maintenance will fit into your life?
After we have all of this information, we present our patients with potential treatment options. We tailor our recommendations to fit the patient’s unique specifications. We know that every patient is unique—that is why we don’t try to treat patients’ smiles with “one size fits all” dentistry solutions.
The key to helping patients discover their dream smiles, is to doing the appropriate amount of research and due diligence before treatment even begins. If you are not sure where to begin when it comes to improving the appearance of your smile, you may want to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentists. This is a great first step to learning more about all of your cosmetic treatment options.
So call our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists when you are ready to take your smile to the next level!
