If you are planning extensive cosmetic dentistry work, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once or one procedure at a time over an extended period. At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, we have some factors to think about:
In the long run, it is less expensive to do it all at once. We know that complete smile transformations are a significant investment for most Wetaskiwin residents. We would be happy to discuss affordable dentistry financing options.
With the latest materials and state-of-the art cosmetic dental techniques, healing is quicker than in the past. However, some procedures such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants may require a healing period.
It is easier physically and psychologically to have the fewest possible visits to your Wetaskiwin dentist. You should also examine how your dental visits and required healing periods will influence your employment and family life. You will have less down time if you receive several procedures at once.
While we routinely achieve great outcomes when doing a smile makeover in steps, multiple porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.
When you come in for a smile analysis, we can discuss oral sedation dentistry. Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from this safe and effective solution for pain and anxiety management. Conscious sedation is especially beneficial for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.
