One of the most important things that our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentists do to help our patients is to provide them with ample information about all of their treatment options. We know that picking the perfect treatment for you can seem overwhelming; we are here to support you as you make healthy dental decisions.

There are a number of important factors to keep in mind as you weigh the pros and cons of various treatments. Today we’ll be talking about a few of them…

Timeline of treatment

When you are considering what type of treatment to pursue, be upfront with your dental team about any timeline you may have. If, for example, you are trying to achieve results in time for a wedding, or another special event, this is very important to know!

Ideal budget

One good thing about modern cosmetic dentistry is that there are treatments to fit all kind of budgets. Our dental team is here to help you choose one that works with your benefits/payment plan.

Post-treatment requirements

Different cosmetic solutions require different types and levels of maintenance after treatment in order to maintain results. For example, in order to keep your smile looking white after professional whitening treatments, you will likely need to complete follow-up treatments every six months to a year.

Reversibility

Some cosmetic treatments require the patient to make permanent changes to his or her smile, while other options leave the person’s teeth intact and relatively unaltered. Traditional veneers, for example, necessitate that the dentist files down the dental enamel before placing the final porcelain restoration—this treatment is not considered reversible.
