If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are four considerations:
All At Once Or Over Time?
At Jeff Gray DDS, our La Mesa smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. Dr. Jeff Gray develops a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation.
Many San Diego and La Mesa cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation or ‘sleep’ dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most San Diego folks. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many La Mesa residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us at (619) 337-7700 to discuss dental financing options in La Mesa.
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the associated healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.
At Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.
