Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Tejas Patel's Thoughts on the New Year 2009

It’s amazing that it’s now 2009!

There’s so much to celebrate and strive for in this upcoming year. With everything that’s going on in the world and the stresses of the economy it’s easy to neglect our health. It’s also easy to just put off taking care of ourselves. Stress and neglect is a harmful combination. We should be thinking the opposite during these difficult times.

The Lakeway dentist emphasizes that you actually have to take even better care of ourselves and prevent any deterioration of our health. Remember, if you get sick because you’re not taking care of yourselves, then you may have to miss additional and unexpected time away from work. That’s not very beneficial in these times. Also, if there was dental care that has been festering, left untreated this could cause a dental emergency and again, unexpected and unplanned time away from work.

These issues that could be prevented now could interrupt your work schedule and cause inconveniences. Also in these times when job stability is uncertain, it may be beneficial to use your dental benefits while you have them. Especially if you currently have a good plan, because it may change for the worse. So if you have care that was recommended it’s easier to address now and be preventative versus waiting for a problem to occur. If you do, you’re risking needing time away from work and needing additional procedures that could cost more in the long run.

Also, if you’re in the job market, it’s a great time to consider improving your smile. Not only is your smile one of the first things people notice about you, it says alot about you to other people. If you’re interviewing consider laser whitening to give you more confidence in your smile. Porcelain veneers, lumineers, invisalign or updating old dental work are also some ways to give you a better smile too.

Another technology the cosmetic dentist in Lakeway ,TX will be utilizing this year is cerec. This technology enables us to make porcelain crowns and fillings in one visit instead of two. What a time saver!

We also have a special for the zoom whitening at $425 that we will continue for the new year. We’ve had a great response to it from last year, so we decided to continue it this year.

Also, we just wanted to say thank you all for continuing to help our Lakeway dental practice grow each year. We are so lucky to have so many wonderful guests and friends of the practice. We are always welcoming new guests so please continue to keep us in mind for those who are in need of a dentist in Lakeway, TX.
