At Tindal Prosthodontics, the health of our patients is always priority number one, but we understand that having a beautiful smile is extremely important as well. People with bright, white, and beautiful teeth usually feel very confident about their appearance and are judged positively by their peers, leading to more satisfaction in their personal and professional lives. Of course, the opposite can also be said if someone is dealing with noticeable stains, chips, cracks, gaps, or missing teeth.
If you’re ready to upgrade your smile, we’re proud to offer a wide variety of cosmetic dental services that can help you achieve a set of pearly whites you’ll be excited to show off! However, with so many treatments to choose from, it’s natural to have a few questions. For your convenience, we’ve gathered a few common questions we get about cosmetic dentistry below. If you don’t see the answers you’re looking for, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help!
If you’re embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth or feel self-conscious about your smile, there’s a good chance that cosmetic dentistry is right for you! However, you may need to complete a few preliminary treatments before improving your pearly whites. Oral health issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and teeth grinding can make some services uncomfortable or even threaten their success. If we detect any warning signs of these issues, we’ll work with you to create a plan for getting your oral health back on track. Once your smile is healthy, we can move on to enhancing its appearance.
After discussing your goals and carefully inspecting your teeth, your Sarasota cosmetic dentist Dr. Tindal will fully explain all your options as well as his recommendations. To correct multiple issues at once, he may suggest a complex aesthetic rehabilitation to utilize several treatments to achieve the best results. We want you to feel 100% confident in any treatment you choose here at Tindal Prosthodontics, which is why we’re proud to offer virtual smile design. During your consultation, Dr. Tindal will take pictures of your teeth and digitally alter them to show you how each treatment changes their appearance. This preview will help you choose the results you like the best.
Just as no two smiles are the same, no two cosmetic dental treatments are exactly alike. There are multiple factors that go into determining how long it will take to improve your pearly whites, such as your age, oral health, and the severity of your case. Additionally, various treatments take different amounts of time to complete. For example, a quick and easy teeth whitening treatment may only take a single appointment, while designing, crafting, and placing a custom veneer may take several weeks.
Every dental insurance policy is different, so we’ll be happy to review the details of your specific plan with you during your consultation. Unfortunately, most dental insurance companies don’t cover the cost of cosmetic treatments. That’s why we offer third-party financing through CareCredit and Compassionate Finance. With a low- to no-interest plan, you can break up the cost of your treatment into easy payments that fit into your monthly budget. During your consultation, we’ll go over your personalized estimate as well as just how affordable achieving the smile you’ve always wanted can be.
