If you are planning extensive cosmetic dental work, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once or one procedure at a time over an extended period. Here are some factors to consider:
In the long run, it is less pricey to do it all at once. At Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls, we are able to complete several procedures in one visit. We know that complete smile transformations are a significant investment for most Horseshoe Bay residents. We would be happy to discuss affordable dentistry financing options. Call us at 830-693-8833 to schedule a no-pressure consultation.
With the latest materials and industry-leading cosmetic dental techniques, healing is speedier 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 to your Marble Falls dentist. You should also think about how your dental visits and needed healing periods will influence 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 oral sedation dentistry. Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from this safe and effective solution for pain and anxiety management. Conscious sedation is especially beneficial for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.
