The impact of transformative dentistry
- Posted on: Mar 15 2021
When patients have several different problems present in their smile, they may feel as though their smile is beyond repair. Fortunately, with the help of Dr. Lindsey Marshall and her team in Ardmore, PA, many patients can enjoy the benefits of transformative dentistry. Transformative dentistry is a way to restore the smile’s natural appearance and function by combining restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures to create a customized plan for individuals. Then, patients can either have all their treatments done at once, or come to the practice over time to have one treatment done at a time.
What treatments are available for transformative dentistry?
Any procedure that restores or improves the appearance of the smile may be used in your transformative dentistry plan. These include some of the following solutions:
- Porcelain veneers
- Professional teeth whitening
- Gum recontouring
- Composite resin tooth binding
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Dental inlays and onlays
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
- Implant-retained dentures (All-on-4)
During the initial evaluation, Dr. Lindsey Marshall will speak with patients about the desires they have for a more beautiful smile. Then, she will make recommendations based on their needs. Some situations may have more than one solution, such as gaps between teeth. These might be addressed with porcelain veneers, composite resin bonding, or an orthodontic referral. Missing teeth might be replaced using dental impacts, dental bridges, or dentures. We walk patients through the different choices they have, and help them make educated decisions based on the results they desire, their dental insurance benefits, and their price point. Then, we work hard to obtain the transformations they deserve!
Who is a candidate for transformative dentistry?
Any patient with several different concerns within their smile may be a viable candidate for these treatments. However, we do suggest that patients have smiles free from periodontal disease and cavities before starting the restorative treatments.
