Our team at Excel Dental doesn’t want anyone to suffer one day longer than they already have the embarrassment of unsightly dental flaws.
That’s why we want to highlight some common misconceptions about cosmetic dentistry that may have stood between you and the beautiful smile you deserve until now. We hope it inspires you to visit your Ozark cosmetic dentists to experience the true benefits of getting the smile you’ve always wanted at the hands of our skilled professionals!
There’s a lot to unpack, so let’s jump right in!
*Cosmetic Dentistry Results Can & Should Look Natural*
Veneers may look stunningly lifelike on one person, but less than attractive on someone else because they don’t fit well. If the color, shape, and size of your veneers aren’t customized especially for you, they’ll draw attention because they look out of place and unnatural, not because they look good.
This is just one example of why choosing the right cosmetic dentist matters!
You want a bright, flawless smile, but you also want it to look as realistic as possible.
That’s why we set a standard of excellence for the work we do for our patients at Excel Dental!
Dr. Davis, Dr. Matthews, and our highly-trained team use the latest techniques and technology to maximize successful treatment outcomes because we understand the importance of a smile that’s just as natural-looking as it is gorgeous!
*Not All Cosmetic Solutions Cost The Same*
While we could never list some generic price tag for specific cosmetic dentistry services in a blog that would apply to all patients, we definitely want to clear up any confusion about the cost of cosmetic dentistry.
Since your needs and goals are completely unique to you, the type of cosmetic treatment you will need varies from patient to patient. Even if you and the person next to you in our waiting room were to both opt for veneers, the treatment costs will differ for each of you depending on the type of veneers you choose and how many teeth will need veneers.
The point is that you don’t have to believe the myth that all cosmetic dentistry is expensive. We offer a wide-range of treatment options so you can choose the one that’s most suitable to your timeline and budget.
Our team also provides a number of flexible financing options, not only to make treatments more affordable for you, but to take some of the hassle out of one of the most stressful parts about dental procedures for patients!
*Avoiding Cosmetic Dentistry Is The REAL Pain*
We’ve been practicing dentistry long enough to know that many first-time patients out there are just sure that whatever dental treatment they may need is going to be painful.
And we can certainly understand where those types of fears come from!
But what’s so remarkable is that, again and again, we’re able to prove to once fearful patients just how calm and relaxing modern dental care can be!
With cozy blankets and pillows, headphones and music, as well as options in dental sedation, you’d be amazed at how much the patient experience has changed for the better compared to years ago.
More than that, we want you to understand that not all cosmetic procedures are the same. While some may be more complicated and take longer to perform, some treatments are quick and simple, and we always go out of our way to ensure your comfort, regardless.
So we get why you might assume every procedure is painful, but the fact is that the real pain happens when you avoid restorative and cosmetic dental treatment!
Infected, decayed, or damaged teeth can all result in highly-intense physical pain, but the emotional pain of living with an unsightly smile that makes you unhappy and insecure can be just as impactful on your overall wellness and quality of life!
*DIY Dentistry Isn’t Worth It*
When we say DIY dentistry, we’re talking items you can buy online or from a drugstore, and even common household products you may already have in your kitchen pantry or bathroom cabinet, like baking soda and peroxide, that are thought to improve your smile in some way.
An increasingly popular cosmetic solution being advertised lately, for example, is orthodontic treatment by mail, various clear aligner therapies claiming to straighten your teeth just as well as Invisalign.
Even more widely-available to the general public are DIY teeth whitening products that range from toothpastes to strips to mouth trays and gels, and more.
While it’s understandable to be curious about whether these seemingly cheaper, more convenient options actually work, the truth is that no amount of time or money you might save by trying them out is worth the risks they pose to your dental health.
What you think you’re saving in the short-term could spell costly corrective treatments down the road from products that promised smile success but ended up in dental disaster!
Store-bought teeth whitening may contain weak concentrations of bleaching agents, but that doesn’t mean they’re completely safe for everyone. The same can be said for orthodontic treatment that’s overseen by a company halfway across the country, rather than an actual dentist who sits down with you in person to evaluate your needs!
The only way to protect yourself and get the results you’re after is by trusting your cosmetic dental treatment to a licensed, experienced dentist who is familiar with your medical and dental history, your current oral health, and your specific goals for your smile.
Dr. Davis and Dr. Matthews at Excel Dental can administer cosmetic dentistry in a way that’s safe, effective, and entirely customized to suit your needs best.
Your smile is an investment, one that’s worth the guidance of professionals!
