I need a significant amount of dental work done and am finally in a position to do something about it. At last check, I needed three root canal treatments, several cavities filled, my teeth whitened, as well as some cosmetic work done about some chips and a snaggletooth. I’d like to get this done as quickly as possible. How much dental work can be done in one sitting? I am ready to get that beautiful smile I have always wanted but couldn’t afford.
I am glad that you are able to get the work you have always wanted done. How much you can have done in one setting will really depend on the dentist. Each dentist is different in the amount of work they are willing to do during an appointment. You will find that sedation dentists will be willing to do more at a time than other general dentists. This is especially true if you use oral conscious sedation. You are so relaxed with this type of sedation that you will sleep through the appointment. This makes it easier for you to tolerate more dental work at a time.
You’ll want to get the general work done before you start in on the cosmetic work. The exception to that would be the teeth whitening. If you are going to need dental crowns, you will want your teeth the color you want them before you have the crowns made. The whitening will not work on dental crowns, only natural tooth structure.
Be Careful Who Does Your Cosmetic Work
While teeth whitening can be done by just about any dentist, the work for the chips and the snaggletooth will require cosmetic expertise. When you do get those procedures done, you will want to see a dentist who has both technical skill and artistry. You will have the most success with a dentist who has been accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. AACD accredited dentists are the top cosmetic dentists in the country. You can feel confident that any one of them can provide you with stunning results. You’ll have a smile you will be proud to show for many years.
