If you are considering a multi-procedure cosmetic dental smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are four considerations:

All at Once or Over Time?

At Artistry in Dentistry, our smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific treatments needed to achieve your perfect smile. Doctor Sheldon Sullivan develops a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.

Oral Sedation?

Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially beneficial for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.


We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most Phoenix dental patients. Some care are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages.

Healing Time?

With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some services such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the needed healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.

Aesthetic Results?

At Artistry in Dentistry in Gilbert our patients experience remarkable results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same ‘batch’ for the most precise color matching.
