What To Expect At Your Cosmetic Consultation

Comprehensive Oral Exam

To begin the process, Dr. Bauer will perform a comprehensive oral exam. This is an important step. It allows him to assess the aesthetic issues with your smile. He can also check for common oral health problems like gum disease and cavities. Any problems with your oral health must be resolved before your cosmetic treatment can begin.

Discuss Your Smile & Your Goals

Next, Dr. Bauer will have an open, honest discussion with you. You’ll talk about your smile, how it makes you feel, what your goals are for your teeth, your budget, and more. This ensures he can recommend the proper treatments for your unique case.

Build Your Treatment Plan

Finally, your local Fresno dentist will work with you to determine the right treatments for your situation. This could include things like veneers, dental bonding, teeth whitening, or even Invisalign. Once you’ve approved your treatment plan, you’ll schedule your follow-up appointments with our front office team. Depending on the case, full or partial payment may be required up-front.

Cosmetic Treatment Options

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

We offer custom take-home teeth whitening kits. Dr. Bauer will make a set of custom, reusable whitening trays that fit your mouth perfectly and give you a set of professional-grade whitening products. Then, you can treat yourself in the comfort of your own home to remove k[stains and brighten your smile. Take-home treatment is convenient and affordable and can whiten your smile by up to 5-10 shades.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is kind of like a filling, and uses a similar composite material. However, instead of being used to fill up a cavity, this material is used to add structure to your tooth, reshaping it and improving its overall appearance. Bonding is fast, affordable, and non-invasive, so it’s a great choice if you’re just getting started with cosmetic dentistry.

Shaping & Contouring

Shaping & contouring, sometimes called “enameloplasty” is often used alongside dental bonding. It involves using a special tool to gently remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This is done to correct minor imperfections like pointed teeth, small chips in the teeth, and uneven teeth. Along with dental bonding, it results in an even, picture-perfect smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an ideal cosmetic dentistry treatment. Veneers are built from tooth-like porcelain. They are very thin, tooth-shaped “shells” that are designed to cover up the front surfaces of your teeth and treat cosmetic flaws in your smile. They are very durable, long-lasting, and natural, making them a popular choice for many patients. However, they do require the removal of some tooth enamel, so the treatment is not reversible.
