From first impressions to lasting relationships, your personal interactions are closely tied to your smile. As one of the clearest reflections of your personality, your smile is one of the first traits someone will notice about you. With such a personal influence on your image, we take cosmetic dentistry seriously. Smile makeovers are not just improvements to your look; quality cosmetic dental treatments should reveal your true personality. With this in mind, our Wilkes-Barre dentist, Dr. James DeFinnis, conducts thorough interviews before beginning cosmetic work. Here is what you can expect from a cosmetic consultation with Dr. James DeFinnis.
Communicating Your Cosmetic Dentistry Expectations
Since good communication is the foundation for predictable, satisfying results, Dr. James DeFinnis will begin your first dental appointment with a 15 to 20 minute face-to-face talk. During this time, we will discuss your goals for your smile, how you felt about past dental care experiences, and questions you have about your procedure. The more we know about your previous dental treatment and your concerns, the more we can address your personal comfort.
Dental Examination for your Oral Health
This consultation will also include a thorough assessment of your current dental health. Dental x-rays, gingival tissue examinations, and oral cancer screenings help our Wilkes-Barre dentist understand what oral health concerns to address before cosmetic treatment. In addition, these diagnostic tests will help determine your candidacy for certain cosmetic procedures.
Predictable Results and Transparent Treatment Plans
After your dental checkup, Dr. James DeFinnis can use computer imaging to show you an approximate image of your completed smile makeover if you choose to undergo treatment. We find that this helps patients discuss concrete details about tooth shape, size, and color. With a commitment to transparent service, we will also explain your recommended procedures, potential costs, and budget solutions so that you can achieve the smile of your dreams.
