If you are planning extensive cosmetic dentistry at Thompson and Frey in Owensboro, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once or one procedure at a time over an extended period.
As you make up your mind, here are some factors to examine:
In the long run, it is less costly to do it all at once. At Thompson & Frey, we are able to complete several procedures in one visit. We know that complete smile transformations are a significant investment and would be happy to discuss affordable dentistry financing options.
With the latest materials and innovative 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. You should also look at how your treatment and healing will affect 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 sedation dentistry. Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from this safe and effective solution for pain and anxiety management.
