However, the best results are typically obtained when a dentist takes the time to understand your unique oral health history and aesthetic goals. This enables them to craft a customized treatment plan that can optimize the form, function, and appearance of your smile. Our New Albany cosmetic dentist—Andrew E. Skasko, DDS—discusses the importance of the consultation process and the high quality of results it can allow your dentist to obtain.

  1. 1. Oral Health Optimization

    Dr. Skasko requires his cosmetic dentistry patients to attend an in-person consultation so that he can properly assess their oral health, bone and facial structures, and goals for the procedure. Good oral health provides the foundation for long-lasting cosmetic outcomes. Whether you are interested in a comprehensive smile makeover or a more conservative cosmetic solution, Dr. Skasko wants to help you achieve the best possible results and the healthiest possible smile.

  2. 2. Personalized Treatment Planning

    With the plethora of generalized information available online about different cosmetic dentistry procedures—such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening—patients often already have an idea of what they think will work best for their situation. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Skasko can help guide you through different treatment options in order to ensure you are making an informed decision. Dr. Skasko does not believe in “one size fits all” dentistry. Instead, he takes a fully personalized approach, collaborating with you in order to deliver exceptionally beautiful and natural-looking results.

  3. 3. Accurate, Comprehensive Price Quotes

    One of the major things patients want to know when they start looking into cosmetic dental treatment is how much it will cost. While Dr. Skasko understands the appeal of generic price estimates, he ultimately believes that these figures do patients a disservice. Every cosmetic procedure is different, and the costs associated will vary based on a wide range of factors. For this reason, he typically reserves discussions about fees until after he has had the chance to meet with you. At the end of your consultation, he can present a much more accurate and personalized price quote based on your treatment plan.
