Whether you have a particular treatment in mind, are looking to plan for the future of your children’s oral health, or simply would like to know more about your teeth, our team offers planning consultations. A dental consultation is a non-invasive visit with your dental care provider where you can discuss your issues, concerns, and treatment options.
These appointments can provide a thorough overview of the procedures that you or your loved one can expect and how they will support your overall oral health. At a dental treatment consultation, we cover the following types of treatments and related details:
- Cosmetic dentistry
- Teeth cleaning
- Procedure requirements, recovery, and timelines
- Flexible financing plans
If you’re considering any major dental procedure, a consultation is a good idea, and can be important for several reasons.
Most dental problems have a variety of possible solutions. You should choose your approach based on your budget, comfort level, and cosmetic desires. If you’re scheduling dental restoration, you’ll find that there are both direct and indirect treatment options available. A direct restoration restores the existing tooth by inserting a filling material into the damaged area. Tooth fillings are available in several materials. You can have a cavity filled with gold, silver amalgam, porcelain, plastic, composite resin, or a glass ionomer.
An indirect restoration covers the damaged tooth with an onlay, inlay, or crown. These are available in various materials as well, including gold, porcelain, and composite resins. If you’re missing one or more teeth, you can opt for dental implants or explore non-implant options like removable partial dentures, a tooth-supported fixed bridge, or a resin-bonded bridge.
