Have you ever considered enhancing your confidence and appearance through smile design? Here at Shoreline Dental, we have helped many patients achieve the smiles of their dreams using personalized smile design treatment plans.
Because every patient’s dental needs and goals are different, it’s vital to sit down and discuss your personal concerns and desires for your smile before recommending any specific treatment. A smile design consultation is specifically tailored to help Dr. Co learn more about your current dental health as well as your smile enhancement goals.
How to prepare for your smile design consultation
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) recommends you ask yourself the following questions before your appointment, so you can communicate openly what you wish for your smile:
- What shade of white do you want your teeth to be: a natural shade, a whiter-than-white shade, or somewhere in between?
- Are you satisfied with the amount of teeth showing when your lips are relaxed and when you smile?
- Are you looking for perfectly aligned teeth or are you happy with slight variations?
- Are you happy with the amount of gum showing when you smile?
What to expect during your Shoreline smile design consultation
When you call to schedule your appointment, let us know you’d like to discuss options for improving your smile. Dr. Co is happy to work directly with you to help choose a treatment plan you’re comfortable with pursuing. For your convenience, we can schedule your consultation together with your hygiene appointment.
Dr. Co will complete a physical evaluation of your current oral health, including the state of your teeth, gums, and bite. We’ll also take x-rays. He will ask you about your goals for your smile, including what features you’re unhappy with and what you’d like to improve.
Visualizing your new smile
Our team of Shoreline dental professionals may suggest a few options for your personalized treatment plan. We will show you digital imaging of your new smile, which gives you the opportunity to visualize your new smile as well as the flexibility to adjust anything that doesn’t quite fit with your goals.
Honest and clear communication with Dr. Co is crucial to help you achieve the smile of your dreams! Feel free to express yourself openly. We’re happy to help address your questions and concerns about the length of treatment and costs. Together with your input, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan just for you and your unique desires. You are in complete control!
