When it comes to our own needs and wants, it’s easy to talk ourselves out of taking action. We put ourselves at the bottom of the priority list, and instead, allow everyone else in our lives to come first.
We live in such a fast-paced, competitive culture that taking time out to pursue the things we want, and even need, somehow seems almost like an extravagance… a luxury. So there’s a lot of guilt that comes with treating ourselves in any way.
And why wouldn’t there be guilt? After all, you have your kids’ homework and extracurricular activities to manage. You have a household to maintain and a relationship to nurture. There’s also the stress from work and the situation with your aging parent to deal with. You? Oh, you’ll take care of you later.
When did this become the norm?! When did taking care of ourselves become an exercise in selfishness?
Well, at Mountain View Dental, our answer is… it didn’t!
Your needs are just as important as everyone else that you look after each day. How well can you take care of other people if you’re not taking care of yourself? Think about it.
The last time you were on an airplane, remember the flight attendant’s emergency instructions before takeoff? You’re told to make sure you have all the necessary life-saving gear on before you administer life-saving measures to your children sitting next to you. Why? Because we know that if you’re in distress in the event of an emergency, you decrease the likelihood of survival for both you and the child because a small child can’t take care of himself.
One of the most common things you’ll hear patients say after they receive cosmetic dental treatment is that they wish they’d had it done years earlier. As happy as they are to see their new and improved smile after a procedure, they wonder why in the world they waited so long!
So that’s what we’re talking about today… The surprising truth about smile makeovers and why you should give yourself permission to have the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
One of our highly trained dentists, Dr. Reese or Dr. Smith, will have a consultation with you to discuss your smile goals and the possible cosmetic procedures that suit your needs. You could choose from such treatments as:

Now let’s talk about some surprising truths about a smile makeover!
Smile Makeovers Can Do More Than Improve Your Appearance
Yes, a making over your smile, whether it’s with cosmetic or restorative dental procedures, will make you look better. But that’s not all it can do.
-You’ll have more self-confidence, which can only help to improve your professional and personal relationships.
-You’ll feel more comfortable now that you don’t feel like hiding your smile’s flaws and imperfections like crooked, chipped, or missing teeth.
-You’ll be able to enjoy all the delicious foods you avoided before due to poor bite alignment or tooth sensitivity.
-You’ll be able to take care of your teeth more easily by correcting problems caused by gum disease, tooth decay, cavities, or tooth loss.
Smile Makeovers Don’t Always Involve Long, Complicated Procedures
Our team of experienced professionals use the latest in advanced dental technology to get you dramatic results more quickly and efficiently than ever before.

Smile Makeovers Can Be Financially Within Your Reach
We hear the word ‘cosmetic’ and tend to automatically assume we can’t afford it. Cosmetic dentistry is something only really wealthy people and celebrities have done, right?
Not the case. At Mountain View Dental, we try to do all we can to design a treatment plan that works with your budget. We also aren’t like other places where you’re pressured into having all kinds of expensive procedures you don’t need. That’s why we offer a variety of payment options for you.
You can pay using cash, credit cards, debit cards, or checks. We also allow financing options through Care Credit and Lending Club, and can even file your claim with most traditional insurance plans.
If you’re unsure about the financial obligation, we want you to feel completely comfortable asking us questions and talking to us about your concerns. We’ll do all we can to find the treatment plan and the payment option that’s best for you!
