What to Expect During your First Visit

Your initial visit for cosmetic dental treatment is important. Dr. Moeckel schedules ample time to get to know your concerns and your expectations. Allot 1 to 1 1/2 hours for this visit.


During your introductory appointment, a comprehensive examination will take place. Dr. Moeckel will evaluate your teeth and periodontal health, and also perform a TMJ and muscle evaluation. If a dental condition exists, Dr. Moeckel will discuss treatment options to precede cosmetic dental care.

Periodontal Charting

Gum health is monitored using periodontal charting, a diagnostic method that allows us to ascertain the need for professional treatment or home care to improve or manage gum health.


If you have recent x-rays, we will contact your previous dentist, with your permission, to obtain copies of them. Otherwise, we will take complete x-rays in our office. A full series of photos will also be taken, as recommended by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

If you are ready to make a change in your smile aesthetic, we are here to help. Request an appointment for your full examination and consultation.
