Prioritizing Our Patients' Health & Safety 

Dear patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
 
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
 
• If you are sick or concerned you might be sick, please cancel your appointment. You will not be penalized in any way for the cancellation, even at the last minute.
 
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. When you get to the office, you are asked to remain in your car and call our office number 972-412-5064. A staff member will come out to you and you will be asked those same screening questions again and have your temperature taken before entering the office.
 
• If you are a new patient, we would really appreciate you using the online patient portal to fill out paperwork prior to your appointment.
 
• We will ask you to immediately wash your hands with soap and water when you enter the office.
 
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. There will also be very few chairs present to avoid crowds in the waiting room. Computers will have disposable covers and counter tops, door handles, waiting room chairs and surfaces will be disinfected with increased frequency.
 
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We will also ask that only the patient, and in necessary cases a legal guardian, enter the office. Older children and adults are requested to experience their appointments alone while family members remain in the car and/or waiting room.
 
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
 
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 972-412-5064 or visit our website at www.mymouthdental.com.  
 
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Montoya and Team

Smile Makeover Cost

Every smile makeover is different, meaning the cost of treatment can vary significantly from patient to patient. A smile makeover is unique in that it combines multiple services to completely transform your smile. Smile makeover cost is affected by the number of procedures performed, the dentist’s level of experience, and a range of other factors. During your initial consultation, your dentist can explain your options and provide you with an estimate of the expected cost of treatment.

Extent of Treatment

Smile makeovers combine multiple procedures into one comprehensive treatment plan. These can range from teeth whitening to dental bonding and porcelain crowns. The number and type of treatments you choose for your smile makeover will affect the final cost. Typically, smile makeovers focus on cosmetic enhancements. If you have underlying oral health concerns such as gum disease, your dentist will likely recommend that you seek periodontal treatment prior to your makeover. Additional general or restorative procedures will raise the cost of treatment.

Smile makeovers consist primarily of treatments that are not covered by insurance. While a crown placed for practical purposes would usually qualify, a crown used to achieve an aesthetic upgrade probably would not.

Level of Experience

In general, dentists with greater training will charge more for treatment than a less experienced practitioner. However, choosing a reputable dentist is an important step when considering any alterations to your smile. While you may save money up front by working with a dentist new to the industry, there is a higher likelihood of complications, and you may need costly retreatment in the future.

The number and type of treatments you choose for your smile makeover will affect the final cost. 

Advanced Technology

Advancements in dental technology have created a range of innovative tools and techniques for enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Many dentists now incorporate these tools as they plan and execute your smile makeover. For example, your dentist may use advanced imaging technology, such as digital impressions or virtual smile design software, to view your jaw and teeth and begin planning your treatment. Keep in mind that advanced treatment methods may cost more than traditional techniques.

The extent of your smile makeover treatment is the most significant cost factor.

Geographic Location

In general, the costs associated with dental treatment vary depending on where you live. Higher overhead costs in major urban areas tend to raise the cost of elective dental procedures.

Sedation

For most patients, cosmetic alterations are performed under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort. However, if you are anxious about your treatment, many dentists offer sedation options to help you relax. Your options may include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or intravenous (IV) sedation. The cost of sedation is not typically included in the initial estimate and will likely raise the price of your treatment overall.

Insurance and Financing

Most dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures as they are not medically necessary. However, if part of your makeover has a restorative purpose, you may receive partial coverage. Dental crowns, for example, can enhance the appearance of a tooth, but they also strengthen the integrity of your bite and restore dental function. Your dentist can provide more information about insurance as well as in-house or third party financing options to help you cover the out-of-pocket expenses.

Enhancing Your Smile

For many patients, enhancing the aesthetics of their smile improves their self-confidence and their quality of life. You can discuss the different cost factors with your dentist and determine if a comprehensive smile makeover treatment plan is the right option for you.
