In a stress free, unhurried but professional atmosphere we will take an accurate history of your past dental and medical experiences and listen carefully to you.
In our modern and comfortable practice all new patients are immediately aware that their requirements are listened to with careful attention before any clinical examinations take place. From the very first visit the patient is made aware that he or she is being looked after as an individual in a caring, unhurried, relaxed atmosphere
Only after you have communicated all information to us and we have answered all your questions will you then be carefully and gently examined. Most of our patients come to us with a specific dental need. They may have crooked, crowded or missing teeth, yellow stained teeth or they may be suffering pain from teeth or gums. Often a cosmetic problem has a functional basis and we are dedicated not only to providing you with a beautiful smile but at the same time healthy and pain free gums and teeth.
We usually are able to give the patient a broad picture of what is necessary to restore the mouth to maximum health, function and beauty. If the first problem is pain we will of course deal with this immediately.
During the initial consultation digital X-rays are used to detect problems of the teeth and gums. This means that there is no waiting for X-rays to be developed as they show immediately on the computer screen and with greater clarity than ever before. In addition, radiation is reduced by markedly compared to traditional x-rays. Today our X-rays are safer than they have ever been.
Dr Kaviani will initially have a full unhurried discussion with you to establish your dental concerns. She will then conduct a full clinical examination of your teeth and gums to ascertain if there are any health problems that have a direct bearing on your current problem or which may be significant in the future. She will then discuss the ideal approach to achieve a perfect result or alternative treatment plans if appropriate. At this stage you may be invited to have a period of reflection at home and then set up another appointment to take photographs, x-rays and study models in order to evaluate and diagnose your concern scientifically.
Consultations for cosmetic dentistry treatments typically include records gathering. Because these records are important for developing a unique and precise cosmetic dental treatment plan that will satisfy your needs, a significant amount of time may be spent for this purpose. Records gathering involves, but is not limited to:
Your consultation may also include a meeting with our patient coordinator, whose role is to help you with scheduling appointments and follow-up care. You may also meet with the practice’s office manager to discuss the types of financing or payment options available to help you manage the cost of your cosmetic dentistry treatment.
These are some of the issues that normally concern people about their teeth. It is a good idea to think about exactly what it is you don’t like about your smile before you come in for the consultation so that Dr. Kaviani can make sure she uses the time as constructively as possible. It is also important to know the type of smile you’re aiming for – a ‘Hollywood’ dazzler or as natural as possible. By listening to you cosmetic dentist Dr. Kaviani can discover exactly what you wish for and discuss the treatment options to achieve it. She will strive to make you feel as relaxed as possible so you are confident to express ideas in this very important first appointment. Although everyone’s idea of perfection is different, you may also like to consider the picture below of the ‘classic’ perfect smile.
Taking all the above into consideration, by listening to you and discovering exactly what you wish for, we will then create the perfect smile for you before your eyes. Using the latest digital photographic technology, we take a picture of your smile, download it onto the computer and image it. This allows you to see your new smile before any treatment begins. By the end of the consultation, you will have all the facts you need to make your decision about your new smile and a full breakdown of the costs.
We share your goals – to have your mouth as healthy, pain free and easy to maintain as possible, in an affordable and non-invasive manner . The beautiful and healthy smiles we consistently create – exhibited throughout this site – speak for themselves. That’s bottom line proof that our caring, experience, effort and expertise make a difference. Every patient is unique and treated accordingly.
