Out of all the cosmetic treatments we offer, porcelain veneers might just be one of the most versatile. Each veneer is made from a high-quality dental-grade porcelain. The veneer is then attached to the visible surfaces of teeth, hiding any and all cosmetic flaws all at the same time! This includes chips, cracks, gaps, minor misalignment, permanent stains, and other concerns you may have. If we believe that porcelain veneers are the right option for you, we’ll begin the treatment process, which takes about two appointments to complete.

At the first visit, we remove a very small amount of enamel from your tooth, which ensures the veneer sit flush and appear appropriately sized. We’ll then capture an impression of your prepared teeth. This mold is sent to a dental lab, where expert technicians fabricate the custom veneers.

At the end of the first appointment, we’ll place temporary veneers so you can get used to what your future smile will look like. They also protect your prepared teeth for the time being. At the final appointment, you’ll have the temporary veneers exchanged for the permanent ones.

Teeth with metal free dental restorations replacing metal fillingsMetal-Free Restorations

This treatment has both restorative and cosmetic applications, but in this instance it’s perfect for concealing cosmetic flaws and achieving natural-looking results. Each metal-free restoration is crafted from a single block of ceramic, which can be used to create crowns, bridges, and other restorations. Whether your teeth have experienced lost structure, decay, trauma, or cosmetic imperfections, metal-free restorations work to improve the overall appearance of your smile. If you are interested in metal-free restorations, you can expect about the same experience when receiving traditional crowns. Before you can receive the permanent restoration, you’ll need to wear a temporary crown, much like how you would a temporary veneer.

Many patients pursue teeth whitening treatment at our office not only because it’s fast and effective, but it yields more promising results compared to over-the-counter whitening products found in pharmacies, grocery stores and beauty supply locations. While they can remove minor surface stains, they often fail to address most stains that have been deeply embedded in enamel. In some cases, they fail to provide any results at all. With professional-grade teeth whitening, you can expect greater efficacy because the dose of whitening is stronger and the technique performed is better targeted. For example, the bleaching agents can stay active on teeth for longer and be less exposed to air, two factors that negatively affect results. Furthermore, our treatments are personalized to you, not mass-manufactured and marketed as a one-size-fits-all solution.

This treatment focuses specifically on gum tissue and removing excess amounts in order to better expose the underlying tooth structure. If you believe that your smile appears “gummy” or you need to show more of your tooth so a restoration (i.e. a crown or bridge) can be placed, this treatment may be for you. Within just a few days, you can expect to make a full recovery after crown lengthening treatment is performed, leaving your smile more balanced, visible and prepared for future restorations if needed.

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, most people pursue it in hopes of achieving either brighter teeth, straighter teeth, or differently shaped teeth. Luckily, there may be more than one way to reach your smile's full potential. Let’s take a look at some of our most popular services:

  • Teeth Whitening – Using a specialized bleaching formula, teeth whitening eradicates stains, often at an affordable price point below $1,000.
  • Crown Lengthening – Should excess gum tissue lend an unusual appearance to your teeth, crown lengthening is a great solution to consider. The overall cost correlates with the extent of the procedure.
  • Veneers – This involves masking imperfect teeth with slim porcelain shells to hide imperfections. While an investment, they often serve as comprehensive solutions to aesthetic issues.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making

Cosmetic dentistry may seem like a significant financial commitment, but it's most certainly a worthwhile investment. Beyond the transformation of your smile, it can boost your confidence, elevate your self-esteem, and provide you with a renewed sense of self-worth. As such, your external image could project success, approachability, and youthful vitality to others. Having an attractive smile can do wonders for your overall quality of life.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Dental insurance typically does not provide coverage for cosmetic procedures. However, if a cosmetic service offers oral health benefits, your policy could potentially contribute to its expenses. This often rings true for metal-free restorations, where coverage may be applicable.

In instances where your insurance doesn't extend to the procedure, you can take advantage of third-party financing via CareCredit. The application process is swift, with eligibility open to most patients. Multiple payment plans are available, allowing you flexibility in managing your expenses. You can also sign up for our in-house dental savings plan to gain access to sizeable discounts for cosmetic procedures.
