Patient Information

For most cosmetic procedures the time it takes to complete the procedures will normally be three appointments. The first appointment will entail a consultation, exam and x-rays. At the second appointment the teeth are prepared, temporized and impressions are taken. If a smile design method has been used, this gives you the ability to "try the teeth in" to make sure you will be happy with the final result. At the third appointment, the dentist will place the permanent restorations. These appointments are about two to three weeks apart. For some cases there may be additional appointments if the case is complex or if other treatment, records or discussion needs to take place so that we can achieve the goals desired. Cost can vary greatly but most procedures can be affordably financed and can be as little as $150.00 a month!
