As experienced cosmetic dentists, we know  New Year’s goals often include dental concerns. To find out how we can help you have your improved smile ready to reveal by early next year, please call The Dentists in Omaha at 402-307-6227.

What Dental Goals Do You Want to Achieve in 2018?

Next year can be the year you feel exceedingly happy about your teeth and smile. Our experienced and compassionate cosmetic dentists can help you build a treatment plan that will accomplish each of your objectives.

We know that aesthetics and function go hand-in-hand. Beautiful teeth are the most beautiful when they are healthy and strong. When we recommend a treatment, it often improves the appearance and health of the teeth. This is easy to see with certain treatments like dental implants, which improve your smile but also help you chew and prevent other teeth from shifting.

Would you like to smile more confidently starting next year? Please consult our dentists about the best ways to make over your smile and rejuvenate your oral health.

What’s the first step on the path to a great smile in 2018? Identifying the things about your teeth you would like to improve. Some of the most common dental issues are:

  • Yellowed and discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Gum recession
  • Uneven gums or an overly gummy smile

Our cosmetic dentists can correct all of these issues and others. Each person who comes to our practice has their own unique dental history and dental objectives. We are personally driven by enhancing the smiles and oral health of each and every person who chooses our practice.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services

There are many different services to improve, enhance and strengthen your teeth, including:

You should consider cosmetic dentistry if you are unhappy with the way your smile looks. If you cover your teeth when you laugh or raise your hand to conceal your teeth, these are all signs you may be a good candidate for these services. But even if you don’t identify with any of these things, but are simply interested in what aesthetic dental treatments can do for you, we encourage you to call The Dentists in Omaha. We’ll help you determine if dentistry aligns with what you are trying to achieve.

Factors to Consider as You Plan

Perhaps you’ve been wondering if it’s the right time for these treatments. Here are a few things you may want to think about and ask about during your consultation:

  • Costs
  • Financing
  • Duration of treatment
  • Longevity of results
  • Special maintenance or cleaning requirements

Cost: Cost can be one of the most significant factors to plan for. After discussing your options in a consultation, our office team will outline the costs of the treatments. We’ll help you determine if your dental insurance policy covers any portion of treatment, although most plans do not provide coverage for treatments that they consider purely cosmetic, such as porcelain veneers.

Financing: We provide financing options via CareCredit. If you are interested, you must apply to see if you are eligible. CareCredit makes monthly payments for the cost of cosmetic dentistry possible. Our team can tell your more about financing and other payment options.

Duration of treatment: While a treatment like orthodontics may take years to complete, porcelain veneers are placed over the course of just a few appointments. We certainly understand the desire to see results as soon as possible, but we also want to ensure you receive the most effective treatments. Rely on us to discuss all aspects of treatment length with you.

Longevity of results: How long will the dental results last? This is an important aspect of choosing a treatment or procedure. Dental implants, orthodontics and porcelain veneers provide some of the longest-lasting results possible. And the high quality of modern dental materials mean that the vast majority of restorations are durable and strong.

Special maintenance or cleaning requirements: Most dental restorations – including dental implants and veneers – do not require any additional care, just a great dental hygiene routine. Removable dentures require cleaning, as do braces and teeth aligner trays. We’ll help you factor maintenance into your choice of treatment.

How Cosmetic Dentistry May Benefit You in 2018

The advantages of cosmetic dentistry are personal. We cannot tell you the exact ways it may affect you, but we can tell you that our cosmetic dentistry patients experience many positive outcomes:

  • Professionally: While having a great smile won’t necessarily get you a job, feeling good about your smile could positively influence your interviews. Think about it this way: When you feel good about the way you look, you are more likely to be outgoing and confident, two characteristics that tend to be beneficial when interviewing for a job.
  • Socially: Looking and feeling good may improve your face-to-face interactions with loved ones, new acquaintances, friends and co-workers.
  • In ways related to dental health: For some people, feeling better about the appearance of their teeth may cause them to take better care of their teeth. A great dental hygiene routine includes brushing, flossing once a day and visiting the dentist every 6 months.

For some people, the results of cosmetic dentistry are life-changing. For others, it provides a way to look and feel their best, or to improve upon a smile they already feel great about. Talk to our dentists to find out whether it is a good fit for you.
