5 Smile Makeover Questions For Carlsbad

5 Cosmetic Dentistry Questions for Carlsbad

If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dentistry work, here are five considerations:

All At Once Or Over Time?
At La Costa Dental Excellence, our Carlsbad 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. Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth develop a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation.

Oral Sedation?
Many Carlsbad and Encinitas cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

Cost?
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most Encinitas folks. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many Carlsbad residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us at 760-268-9582 to discuss dental financing options in Carlsbad.

Healing Time?
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.

Aesthetic Results?
At La Costa Dental Excellence in Carlsbad 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.
