Some of the most exciting treatments that our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentists complete are total smile makeovers. Using a number of different cosmetic treatments we can help patients achieve stunning smiles no matter what their current smiles look like. Let’s learn more about what patients should consider when combining different cosmetic treatments.

Combining different cosmetic treatments can deliver stunning results, but there are certain things to keep in mind.

Combining natural enamel and restorations

If you are looking to use cosmetic restorations on some of your teeth, while keeping your other natural teeth exposed, there are certain things to consider. First of all, you want to make sure that the color of your dental enamel will match the color your restorations. Restorations can be shaded to match your natural enamel, but keep in mind that your restorations will not whiten with professional whitening treatments. So if you are going to lighten your natural enamel, you want to do this before your restorations are shaded. Also, talk to you dentist about how your cosmetic restorations will be sized and shaped to coordinate with your existing smile.

Making treatment work on your timeline

Remember that when you combine dental treatments, some treatments may need to be completed before your smile can progress. If you are trying to improve your smile in time for a specific event, talk to you dentist about your goals. Many times we can make short-term changes to enhance your smile in time for events, as we move toward more long-term results.

The good news is that our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentist office is here to guide you through this entire cosmetic dentistry process. Feel free to give us a call to get more information or to schedule a consultation with our dental team. We’re here to help you discover your dream smile!
