When you get excited about cosmetic dentistry, this is a completely natural response. Learning that you can do something about problems you’ve been seeing with your smile for quite a long time is a major relief. However, it’s very easy to have a simple, relaxing experience with this new journey of yours or to accidentally find yourself stressed out and uncertain about how to proceed. To make sure you have an absolutely fantastic time and end up with the smile you’ve been dreaming about, we encourage you to consider a few general rules to keep in mind.

Don’t Set A Timeline Too Soon

We understand that you might suddenly feel ready for a whiter smile, so you tell yourself that by this time next week, you’ll have a glowing grin! Feeling motivated and setting deadlines is always a helpful approach. However, setting deadlines for completed dental work can leave you feeling disappointed if things don’t go according to plan. Instead, we encourage you set short-term goals you can control, such as scheduling a consultation. Then, if you require restorative care before we can get started with a treatment (or another minor obstacle arises), you will still be excited.

Don’t Make Any Assumptions

Don’t assume that you’re a perfect candidate for teeth whitening or any other cosmetic dentistry treatment. You may unintentionally sabotage the ease with which you accept our suggestions. Instead, come in with an open mind! You might find that we offer an even better care plan than you thought possible for yourself.

Remain Realistic

We know you want a beautiful smile. However, these things take time, money, effort, and may require multiple treatments. Just remember that if you have realistic expectations, cosmetic dentistry will feel very, very rewarding!
