Am I a Good Candidate
for Cosmetic Dental Work?
Your Oral Health
Cosmetic dental services require that patients first have good oral health. Cases of decay, infection, and other serious issues must be addressed before we can proceed with aesthetic work. Once we have successfully addressed any issues with general or restorative dentistry, we can schedule your cosmetic treatment.
The ideal candidate for cosmetic dentistry does not smoke or use tobacco products. Not only do these products impact your oral health, but they also yellow your teeth and lower the efficacy of your cosmetic treatments. Dr. Measells prefers to treat patients who have quit their tobacco habits permanently.
Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Dentist-supervised teeth whitening is safer and more effective than store-bought whitening products. We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options for the convenience of our patients.
Cosmetic bonding can camouflage minor imperfections, such as discoloration, chips, cracks, and small gaps. Your dentist conceals the flaws with a tooth-colored composite resin material.
Made for the unique contours of your smile, porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. Dental veneers can bring symmetry to your smile and conceal mild to moderate flaws, such as chips, cracks, or severe discoloration.
Dentists often treat orthodontic misalignment with traditional braces. This appliance uses metal bands, brackets, and wires to gently move the teeth into more favorable positions over time.
Patients who want a straighter smile without the look of metal braces can opt for Invisalign®. Rather than metal components, this system straightens your smile using clear aligners.
Tooth loss can be devastating to your appearance and oral health. Dental implants replace missing tooth roots and can be restored with crowns, bridges, and dentures, depending on your needs.
Some individuals have an overgrowth of gingival tissue that covers portions of the tooth crowns. Your dentist uses gum contouring to remove excess tissue and reshape the gumline for a more balanced look.
A smile makeover combines several aesthetic dentistry procedures into one streamlined plan. Patients can choose whitening, veneers, dental implants, or any other treatment to enhance their appearance.
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Enhance Your Smile
Financing Your Bright New Smile
The cost of your treatment will depend on the treatments you undergo and your unique circumstances. Because they're not considered medically necessary, cosmetic dentistry treatments are not covered by insurance.
Fortunately, our practice offers financing options through CareCredit®. With CareCredit, you can enjoy benefits such as low and no interest payment plans so you can break up the cost of treatment into easy monthly installments. We also offer a 5% discount for patients who pay for treatment up front.
