Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentist Describes What to Keep In Mind When Pursuing Multiple Cosmetic Treatments

Written by Dr. McKay on Dec 17, 2013

Improving your smile is a possibility with innovative cosmetic dentistry treatments. Our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentist office offers a number of different dental treatments to refresh your teeth and rejuvenate your smile. Our dental team is proud to offer our patients the option of a customized smile makeover—during which we use various dentistry techniques to perfect a patient’s smile. Here are some things to consider if you are looking to combine cosmetic dentistry treatments.

1. How long will treatment take?

Be honest with your dentist about your dental treatment timeline. If you are trying to improve the appearance of your smile in time for a specific event, our dentist can help you meet your aesthetic goals in a limited timeline.

2. Are you combining restorations with your natural teeth?

Many patients can benefit from using cosmetic dentistry treatments like Lumineers on some of their teeth, while leaving the rest of their natural teeth exposed. Just keep in mind that dental restorations will not be lightened by professional whitening treatments like natural dental enamel is. So if you want to lighten the appearance of your overall smile, you should lighten your natural teeth, and then shade your restorations to match your new, lighter smile.

3. Short-term solutions

If you are interested in pursuing permanent, long-term cosmetic dental treatment, but you want your smile to look good in the short term, our dentist can help you with non-permanent cosmetic dentistry treatments. Snap on Smile, for example, provides the patient with an immediate transformation without altering the patient’s natural teeth.
