Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Burch Dental and our patients who have undergone cosmetic dental procedures will agree, there are valuable benefits to achieving an aesthetically pleasing smile. Some of the most popular benefits of cosmetic dentistry include:

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

The length of each cosmetic procedure will vary. If you require multiple restoration steps, the process of achieving a healthy smile may take some time. With dental technology improving on almost a daily basis, the process of completing most cosmetic procedures continues to become more efficient.

Tooth replacement, as an example, used to take weeks and months to complete successfully. Now we can replace teeth safely and effectively within one day. You will differ in the procedures you qualify for, but you can walk out after one appointment instantly confident with your restored smile.

What Cosmetic Procedures Are Offered?

Depending on your specific needs, there are several restoration options for teeth that can improve and enhance the appearance of your smile. Some of the options include:

  • Dental Implants
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Bonding
  • Porcelain Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Lumineers (no-prep veneers)
  • Tooth Contouring/Reshaping
  • Root Canals

Choosing a restoration procedure appropriate to meet your smile goals and dental needs is best decided with professional guidance from Burch Dental. Making a consultation appointment with us to create a treatment plan and to review the available restoration options is the best start to determining if a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan is right for your smile.

Which Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure Is Right for You?

There are a few factors to consider when considering cosmetic dentistry. Not all procedures will be appropriate for you, and if you have severe dental concerns that might eliminate a treatment from the start. Before any cosmetic dentistry can be performed, the health and integrity of your jawbone, your teeth, and your gums must all be evaluated.

For Burch Dental to begin creating your ideal treatment plan, we start with a consultation appointment. In this visit, we will complete several examinations to evaluate your mouth in its current state. These exams may include:

  • A comprehensive oral exam.
  • X-rays, the types ranging depending on your specific need.
  • Impressions of your teeth.
  • A bite analysis and a TMJ analysis.
  • Radiographs
  • Periodontal, gum, and oral cancer exam.

After the required exams are completed, Burch Dental will create a cosmetic treatment plan perfect for achieving your desired smile. You may require more extensive restorations due to a loss of functionality or the spread of disease or decay resulting in extractions.

If you have healthy teeth you may only be looking for a restoration option that covers abnormally shaped teeth or stains. When it comes to cosmetic dental procedures, every patient is unique. It is essential for cosmetic dental plans to be tailored to your individual circumstances of your case to achieve the best possible result.
