If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are five considerations:
All At Once Or Over Time?
At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, our Alexandria smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. Dr. James D. Geren or Dr. Zeyad Mady will develop a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation.
Many Alexandria and Mt. Vernon cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most Mt. Vernon folks. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many Alexandria residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us at 703-360-5881 to discuss dental financing options in Alexandria.
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the associated healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.
At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.
