Orland Park Cosmetic Dentist Answers Questions About Various Treatment Considerations

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Aug 16, 2016

If you have been considering improving the appearance of your smile with cosmetic dentistry, then our Orland Park cosmetic dentists are here to help you make the best decisions for the health and the aesthetics of your smile.

Choosing a cosmetic dentistry treatment is not a decision to be taken lightly. There are many things to consider/keep in mind when weighing the pros and cons of various dental options.

For example, as you’re building a treatment plan it is important to consider whether certain treatments can achieve both aesthetic and functional goals for your smile. Dental patients who want to improve dental alignment, for example, may simultaneously be able to improve TMJ functioning with orthodontic treatment. Talk to your dentist about how you can get the most out of treatment.

Also, make sure to let our dental team know if you are trying to perfect your smile in time for a certain special event—like a wedding or a reunion. One of the great things about modern cosmetic dentistry is that there are treatment options to fit all kinds of timelines!

Keep in mind that different treatments will require different types/levels of maintenance in order to help you retain results. Before choosing a treatment, think about what kind of post-treatment care you’re comfortable with. If, for example, you whiten your smile using professional whitening treatments, you will likely need to repeat treatments every year or so in order to minimize newly developed stains. LUMINEERS, on the other hand, are naturally stain-resistant.

Exploring your different treatment options, and thinking critically about what you want to achieve through cosmetic dentistry, is crucial. Our Tinley Park cosmetic dentists are here to provide you with all of the information and the support that you need in order to meet your dental goals in a way that works for you, as an individual.
