Cosmetic Dentistry and Surgeons Team Up for Dental Spa Treatments

While bleaching and teeth whitening services have already reached the mainstream medspa markets, a new wave of dental treatments could be making its way to your cosmetic surgeon's office.

Earlier this year, dental spa experts recognized that 5% of dental practices in the U.S were now offering spa dentistry on their menu of services.

As more people forego cosmetic enhancement in today's fluctuating economy, cosmetic surgeons are looking for new ways to attract more clients, offering an array of treatments and 'add-ons' to the standard procedure.  Creating a dental spa environment to the office is a solution for some practices, and there are now several dental spas cropping up across the country.

Clients can walk in for their usual teeth whitening treatment, but also perfect that smile with gum recontouring services or add a set of porcelain veneers to their roster of treatments.  Some 'spas' are going as far as adding laser skincare and aromatherapy services to the menu. Dental spa packages may offer additional savings - and save time booking separate appointments - for those interested in a drastic improvement to their smile.

Perhaps the biggest reason to head to the dental spa is to reduce the fear factor; the spa-like atmosphere makes it easier to relax while undergoing extensive dental work.
