In our last blog post, we talked about Smile Makeover procedures and the many benefits they offer to patients who are looking to improve numerous dental issues and enhance the appearance of their smiles. Today, we’ll discuss what goes into the costs of a Smile Makeover and what you can expect during the recovery process.
Every person’s needs and goals are unique, which means that every Smile Makeover is different from the one before it. With that in mind, the total cost of a Smile Makeover will ultimately depend on the procedures you choose as part of your treatment. A Smile Makeover can include a tooth-colored filling and a teeth whitening treatment; a set of dental implants plus porcelain veneers and a Smile Facelift®; all of the above; or a number of other combinations. It’s truly customized to your individual needs and goals. When you come in for your initial oral exam and consultation with our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael Kosdon will talk with you about your needs and help you determine the ideal treatments to include for your Smile Makeover. Once your treatment plan is created, a member of our team will talk with you about the cost estimate and the many available dental financing and payment options at our practice that can make the procedure convenient and affordable for your needs.
In terms of recovery, the length of the healing process will also depend on the Smile Makeover treatments you select. Fortunately, Dr. Kosdon utilizes advanced treatment techniques that do not typically require extended recovery times; however, some options – like dental implants – will require more of a recovery period. The length of recovery time will also be affected by whether you choose to have your Smile Makeover performed in a single visit or staged over multiple appointments. Patients who undergo sedation dentistry techniques during their Smile Makeover will also need to plan for a brief recovery period right after treatment while the effects wear off. These patients will also need to arrange for someone to drive them to and from the office since the sedative will make them very drowsy.
Once he evaluates your unique needs and goals, Dr. Kosdon will be better able to answer your questions about the specific costs of a Smile Makeover and what to expect during the recovery process. We aim to provide you with the best possible treatment experience and a beautiful new smile!
