For straight teeth in the St. Louis area, look no further than Koch Park Dental, where Dr. Martin L. Buchheit and his team deliver quality dental care in a safe and fun environment.
If you are planning extensive cosmetic dental work, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once, or spread it out one procedure at a time. Here are some things to think about:
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing is speedier than in it used to be. Still, some procedures such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants may require a period of healing.
It is easier physically and psychologically to have the fewest dental visits possible. You should also consider how your dental visits and any healing periods will affect 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 veneer 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 useful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.
In the long run, it is more affordable to do multiple procedures at once. At Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS, we are able to complete several procedures in one visit. We understand that complete smile transformations are a significant investment. We would be happy to discuss financing options.
