Comprehensive Dentistry

We are focused on your total oral health!

What is Comprehensive Dentistry?

Combining our expertise with modern technology.

Our dentist uses modern equipment to provide the best results.

Comprehensive dentistry is “whole picture” dentistry. It looks at all areas of your oral health, including how your bite functions, the health of your teeth, and the cosmetic appearance of your smile.

These comprehensive treatments use a variety of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental procedures to produce a smile that is both healthy and beautiful.

Treatments may include dental implants to replace missing teeth, Invisalign® for a straighter smile, porcelain veneers to modify the shape or color of your teeth, occlusal splints to treat TMJ problems, or teeth whitening to brighten your smile.

What can you expect during treatment?

  • First Visit

    The first step starts with our Seattle dental team doing a thorough comprehensive dental exam and taking x-rays and photographs.

  • Smile Design Consultation

    Next, we discuss treatment options with you. This includes going over any concerns or questions you may have. Then, we go through some smile design principles with you (the mechanics of building a smile that looks good and feels good).

  • Review of Expectations

    We do everything we can to help you visualize the outcome of your new smile while setting expectations before starting treatment. In some cases, we need the expertise of a specialist to provide a specialized treatment or to consult with our dentists on which treatments are best for you.

  • Treatment Begins

    Once we determine the best comprehensive treatment, we start with the basics first. This includes restoring any loss of function, replacing missing teeth, and straightening crooked teeth.

    With a healthy foundation established, we then move on to cosmetic improvements to your smile. Our dentists have completed hundreds of hours in continuing education and attended many seminars and hands-on workshops to give you more effective treatments with outstanding results.

  • Love Your Smile

    Comprehensive dentistry can make a positive impact on you, inside and out. The changes that comprehensive treatment make are dramatic and often life-changing for our patients. You’ll look, smile, and speak differently with more confidence!

‘‘I hadn't been to the dentist in a couple of years. Dr. Curalli and his team at Smile Ballard made me feel welcome and gave me a good plan going forward on how to handle my dental care. I highly recommend them if you're looking for a dentist.’’

Our patient’s experience at our office:

Len struggled with his front teeth ever since a baseball accident as a kid left him with missing and broken teeth. Even though it had been repaired, he would guard his smile and try not to let other people see too much of his teeth.

When another front tooth needed to be removed, we explained the replacement options for that tooth. In addition, we informed him of comprehensive dentistry treatments that could improve the shape, alignment, and color of his smile.

Len began comprehensive treatment that lasted about a year, but we kept him comfortable and smiling throughout the entire process. With treatment now finished, he shows off his new smile with pride and has a clean bill of dental health!

FAQs: Comprehensive Dentistry

Our Ballard dentist answers your questions.

  • Will the dentist do all the procedures for my comprehensive treatment in-house?
    In many cases, our Ballard dentists involve a specialist for segments of the comprehensive treatment or during treatment planning.

    If we need a specialist, our dentists communicate thoroughly with the expert to help ensure your goals are met with access to the best treatments possible. Your smile is in good hands with comprehensive dentistry in Ballard, WA.

  • How long does the whole comprehensive process take?
    Comprehensive treatment time varies based on each situation. For example, some patients may need only a few appointments that take a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, others may require more involved procedures and longer healing times.

    Before we begin, we give you a detailed treatment plan and let you know what to expect. Then, our Ballard dentists outline the length of treatment and the number of appointments necessary to achieve your goals.

    While we strive to make each appointment as efficient as possible, we can phase out treatment to accommodate your budget and schedule. So, step by step, our Seattle cosmetic dentist creates your dream smile!

  • Is sedation dentistry available?

    Yes, sedation dentistry is available at our Seattle dental practice. We offer mild sedation with nitrous oxide to make your dental visits more comfortable.

    Our team pays attention to the small details, is conscious of your comfort level, and goes the extra mile to make sure you feel your best during each visit.

  • Is comprehensive dentistry expensive?

    Comprehensive dentistry costs in Seattle, WA, depend on the extent of treatment, individual needs, and dental insurance coverage. Everyone’s smile is unique, and everything we do at Smile Ballard includes personalized plans for your goals, needs, and budget.
