When You Think You Need Restorative Care But…

Have you been under the impression that you are going to require restorative care from our team? Has this had you feeling a little concerned? Maybe you have procrastinated for a while because you just didn’t want to face the music (even though our Virginia Beach, VA team always reminds you that restorations with our team are gentle, relaxing, and comfortable!). However, did you come on in to see us finally only to discover that what you really need is cosmetic care? How is this possible and what does it mean, you wonder? Let’s walk you through some explanations and thoughts!

It Means You Shouldn’t Make Assumptions

As far as what it means to discover that instead of requiring the restorative care you were so sure you would need and to instead find out that you actually need cosmetic care, we remind you: It is never ever a good idea to make assumptions! Whether you have a toothache and think you know what’s wrong, your smile is yellowed and you assume you can figure out what’s going on, your tooth looks damage and you figure you know what we’ll suggest, etc., it’s never any use! In many instances, you may be close or even spot on. However, it’s just as likely that your guess will be dramatically different from the reality of what you need from us. The solution? Call us, set up a dental visit, and come in! You can save yourself a lot of confusion and even some upset or uncertainty! Instead, you’ll quickly get to the facts and receive the care you really need.

How It’s Possible

How on earth, you wonder, is it possible to require cosmetic care when you were so absolutely sure you were going to need restorative dentistry? Here are some examples of what could happen, so you better understand the mystery:

  • You thought your tooth was broken and you’d need a crown but really, your tooth is just chipped and you need bonding
  • You thought your tooth was too damaged for cosmetic treatments because it looked so bad to you but it turns out we can camouflage the damage with porcelain veneers because it is only esthetic
  • You thought your yellowed smile was the result of serious erosion but it turns out it’s just staining, so we can help with whitening, veneers, or bonding!
