Cosmetic dental procedures are quickly gaining popularity. We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures at Today's Dental to help you regain confidence in your smile. But we also want you to be certain about your choice. As a result, our Edmonton dentists have developed a list of questions you should ask yourself before undergoing cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic dental care consists of a wide variety of treatments, such as veneers and crowns, that treat issues with your teeth and help you put your best smile forward. When beginning their cosmetic dental treatment journey, some patients start to think about the cost, while others consider the time treatment will take. Still, others consider if cosmetic dentistry is worth it.
All of these are valid concerns, and it is worthwhile to discuss them with your dentist. Your dentist is the best person to give you cosmetic dentistry advice and recommend the best procedures for you. On that note, here are three important questions to consider before committing to a cosmetic dental procedure.
Will I feel better?
One of the first questions you should ask yourself before undergoing any cosmetic procedure is whether it will improve your mood. That is, will you gain enough self-confidence to make the procedure worthwhile? Many people are motivated to pursue cosmetic dental treatment because they lack confidence. Having beautiful teeth may be worth the investment. However, you must be completely honest with yourself about how such a procedure will make you feel.
Am I unhappy with my teeth?
Whether or not a cosmetic dental procedure will make you feel better in the long run, you should also consider whether or not you're currently happy with the state of your teeth. Ask yourself, whether it's getting Invisalign treatment later in life or opting for professional teeth whitening procedures if it's worth the investment when you smile at yourself in the mirror.
How much will it cost?
One of the first things you should think about is whether you have enough money or insurance to undergo a cosmetic procedure in the first place. If you don't have insurance, some dental clinics offer financing options and/or a dental savings plan to help you afford treatment. Even if you don't have the money ready to go, the various options available to you should be a great place to start.
At Today's Dental, we'll be happy to discuss dental procedure fees with you and assist you in determining what's affordable.
