If you’ve decided that now is the time to transform your smile through cosmetic dentistry, you may have questions about the procedure. After all, it’s a complex process, and being prepared is the best way to ensure that your visit goes as smoothly as possible. 

Whether you’re coming in for veneers or aesthetic fillings, here are some of the best ways to prepare for your cosmetic procedure. 

Schedule an Initial Consultation

Before you can undergo a procedure with us, you’ll want to schedule an initial consultation. During this time, we will perform a dental examination to make sure that your teeth are healthy enough for us to perform a procedure safely and effectively. 

If you’re getting veneers, this includes checking the enamel on your teeth. If you’re coming in for fillings, we need to check to ensure that you don’t have any deep cavities that may require more extensive treatment. If, for one reason or another, we find that you need other dental work done before you can schedule an appointment for cosmetic work, we’ll work with you to make a plan. 

Keep Track of Any Questions

You may miss out on asking critical questions during your initial consultation. It’s vital to jot down any questions that have between then and your procedure so that we can answer them before we get started. 

Understand What Your Insurance is Covering

While we are happy to perform your cosmetic dentistry procedure, we don’t want to. As a courtesy, we will help make sure you know how much of your procedure your insurance company is covering before you come in for your appointment.

Keep Up with Your At-Home Dental Routine

After your initial consultation, we’ll have a good idea about your dental health. This information is vital in our decision to proceed with your dental procedure, and you’ll want to do everything you can to keep your teeth healthy before your appointment. If you don’t keep up with your regular at-home routine, you could see a change in the integrity of your teeth.

If this happens, it could interfere with the procedure, making it unsafe or leading to less than desirable results. Our goal is to give you a smile that you can be proud of, and taking the necessary measures to make sure your teeth are in prime condition will help us deliver just that.
