Beautiful and Bright New Smile!
I don’t like my teeth or my smile – what can I do?
A wide variety of options are available to improve tooth function and how your smile looks. Look for an EDS Office near you to get started on your new smile.
How much does it cost to get a great smile?
Like most services, cost varies based on the amount of time required and the difficulty of the procedure(s). Generally, improving a smile requires a combination of treatment options such as bleaching, reshaping gums, and using bonded materials (resin or porcelain) to improve the appearance of the teeth. A great way to start is by having a consultation with Dr. Bonilla to determine how you can reach your goals. Improving your smile is an investment in you.
I have dental insurance. Will it pay for my new smile?
Most dental insurance has very low total benefits per year, which may offset the cost for regular checkups, but probably won’t pay toward cosmetic services. Insurance is a business; thus, your carrier will often contract to pay for the least expensive option instead of the best solution for your particular needs or desires. Dr. Bonilla will work to maximize your benefits, and may have suggestions for alternative methods of financing so you can obtain the treatment of choice.
What are some benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
A great smile should improve your self-confidence, which can have a positive impact on the social and professional aspects of your life. Cosmetic dentistry is not just about pretty smiles though. New techniques and materials are available for back teeth as well as those seen when you smile. Now your mouth can look great, get healthy, and function better, all at the same time. Ask an Dr. Bonilla what’s available for you.
Why should I go to Dr. Bonilla?
Dr. Bonilla has shown a special interest in new technologies and procedures, specifically to help himself achieve better results for you. Dr. Bonilla has a wide variety of educational and mentoring opportunities in attaining the best possible clinical skills to help promote excellent care for you.
Will Dr. Bonilla be able to provide all the treatment I need?
Dr. Bonilla provides a variety of procedures, while others focus on specific areas of treatment. Many times, cosmetic and restorative dentistry requires a team approach to achieve the best results. A consultation is a great way to determine your needs, so your best approach is to consult with Dr. Bonilla on how to achieve your goals. Either way, Dr. Bonilla will work to give you the beautiful and natural smile you want and deserve.
What is a dentist’s responsibility?
Licensed dentists are responsible for giving their patients a complete oral and dental examination and then conveying those results to the patient in a clear manner. Their responsibility is to give a thorough examination no matter what procedure the patient is seeking.
How many office visits will it take to fix my teeth and improve my smile?
This varies with each individual, depending on the need. Sometimes, you can dramatically improve your oral health and appearance in just a couple of visits. Dr. Bonilla will work to make your treatment as convenient as possible, perhaps choosing slightly longer visits instead of frequent trips to the office. Discuss your goals and concerns with Dr. Bonilla so the best plan can be developed for your individual situation. If you start today, a new smile can be yours sooner than you think.
What will my new smile look like?
Dr. Bonilla will work with you in choosing the right look for you. A smile enhancement can be made to look both dramatic and natural. Dr. Bonilla uses photographs (in a process called cosmetic imaging) and models to show you what to expect. Sometimes, trial materials can be placed directly on your teeth to help you visualize the change. Ask Dr. Bonilla what can be done to give you the smile you desire.
Is my new smile permanent?
With good home care and regular visits to your dentist, modern materials can last for many years, and possibly decades. Like most things, excellent maintenance will extend the life of your dental restorations.
