Cosmetic Dentistry & Smile Design: What to Expect
Careful planning will go into making your smile perfect. Our goal is to provide advanced dental care that results in long-lasting results that you love. Dr. Izadi and Dr. Rafat will begin with a complete exam to look for health issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, we will check the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) to look for issues in your bite. Fixing the basic dental problems first will assure the effectiveness of the treatments.
Creating a treatment plan may involve the use of digital photos and other dental tools. These photos help our dentists picture what the results will look like and keep track of your progress throughout the process. Our cosmetic dentist office uses Digital Smile Design to create a smile you will love. We will use images of your entire mouth to create a 3D image of your new smile. If there is something on the screen you do not like, we can make the change right away. This process will save you time and ensure you get the outcome you want.
