Cosmetic Dentistry

A smile goes a long way in everyday life. If you are feeling insecure or uncertain about your smile, have no fear! We are here to help! Hicks Dental Group provides excellent cosmetic dentistry in Prescott, Arizona, where we focus on giving you the aesthetically pleasing smile you’ve been hoping for. The ins and outs of cosmetic dentistry can sound more complex than they are. We want to share our passion for the creativity and the positive results that come from our work.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry can not only improve the positive appearance of your smile, but it can also help increase your self confidence. Insecurity over your smile decreases your ability to fully be yourself and feel good about who you are. Cosmetic dentistry helps correct the areas of your smile that you are less than pleased with. The main goal of cosmetic dentistry is not for the functionality or strengthening of your teeth – though that can be an added improvement – but to improve the aesthetics of your smile. The procedures of cosmetic dentistry are not as much a necessity as they are a desired service. These services can address several dental and oral concerns from shape and size to color of teeth.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

With cosmetic dentistry, there are various ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Some of the Cosmetic dentistry services we provide at Hicks Dental include:

  • Full Mouth Reconstruction
  • Dental Implants
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Inlays/Onlays
  • Composite Bonding
  • Dental Veneers

What to Expect in Your First Appointment

During your first appointment, you and your dentist will be able to discuss specific needs and determine the best treatment options for you. At this time, you will have a detailed conversation with your dentist on every aspect of cosmetic dentistry. You can get as personal as you like and even provide feedback on what you do and do not like about your smile. It is important to come prepared since staff may request your past medical records.The first appointment will also include an initial oral exam. Some dental specific topics covered in the initial appointment include:

  • Prior dental history and dental records
  • Impressions of your upper and lower teeth
  • Discussion of color your teeth
  • Shapes and sizes of desired teeth

Your appointment will be a time to collaborate with your dentist. This offers you an opportunity to create a creative, positive treatment plan together. Contact Hicks Dental Group today to learn more about our cosmetic dentistry services and set up your first appointment!
