If you are planning extensive cosmetic dentistry work, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once or one procedure at a time over an extended period. Here are some factors to consider:
In the long run, It is less expensive to do it all at once. At Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington, TX, we are able to complete several procedures in one visit. We know that complete smile transformations are a significant investment for most Arlington and Fort Worth, TX residents. We would be happy to discuss affordable dentistry financing options. Call us to schedule a no-pressure consultation.
With the latest materials and cosmetic dentistry techniques, healing times are shorter than ever before. However, some procedures such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a longer healing period.
It is easier physically and psychologically to have the fewest possible visits to your Arlington or Fort Worth dentist. You should also consider how your dental visits and necessary healing periods will impact your employment and family life. You will have less down time if you receive several procedures at once.
While we routinely achieve great outcomes when doing a smile makeover in steps, porcelain restorations such as dental veneers are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.
