5 Smile Makeover Questions For Arcadia Smiles

How Much Does A Smile Makeover Cost In Arcadia

If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive cosmetic dentistry, Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia suggests these four considerations:

All At Once Or Over Time?
You can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. We develop a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.

Oral Sedation?
Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

Cost?
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most people. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many Arcadia residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us to discuss dental financing options in Arcadia.

Healing Time?
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the necessary healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.

Aesthetic Results?
At Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia, our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.

How Long Do They Last? Dental Crowns in Arcadia

Pasadena endodontists, oral surgeons, and general dentists use dental crowns (sometimes called caps) in many restorative treatments. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured, a crown can correct bite misalignments, and a crown is usually necessary after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.

Crowns are also used extensively for purely cosmetic reasons: yellow teeth, stained teeth, too-small teeth, and teeth that are misshapen.

Dental crowns are fabricated from a variety of materials that vary in appearance and strength:

1. All ceramic (porcelain-based)
2. Porcelain fused to metal
3. Gold alloys
4. Base metal alloys

Your dentist can help you determine which type is right for you. Factors to consider are the location of the crown in the mouth, your budget, and any allergies to metal.

Dental crowns can last for many years, but are not designed to last indefinitely. Even with proper care, dental patients should not expect crowns to be trouble-free for decades.

There is encouraging evidence that points to a high success rate: a 2009 study found that more than 90% of dental crowns will not require treatment within five years of placement. The study also found that 50% to 80% last from 15 to 20 years.1

Gum Disease In Arcadia

Do you know that the most frequent cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? The good news, whether you’re in Arcadia, Monrovia, or Pasadena,  is that gum disease is easy to treat with early detection.

Regular check-ups are vital. But between visits, there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for.

1. Gums that bleed frequently

2. Gums that are tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed

3. A bite that changes suddenly so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly

4. Detached gums

5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

6. Loose or separating teeth

If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, talk to us. Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing is the key to healthy gums.

At Premier Dental Esthetics, we take pride in caring for our patients and want them to have healthy, beautiful smiles they can be proud of. In addition to treating gum disease, our practice specialties include cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, dental implants, and family dentistry. Call for an appointment or consultation today.

We hope to hear from you soon!
