It’s relatively common for teeth to become more and more lackluster as years go by. Thankfully, they don’t have to! Teeth whitening from cosmetic dentist,Dr. Prach, creates a truly dramatic transformation for your look, brightening enamel by several shades so it shines once more.

Porcelain Veneers

If you’d love to make one big change for your smile instead of undergoing several different treatments, veneers from Dr. Prach could be the right choice. These thin pieces of lifelike dental porcelain are designed to fit over your natural teeth and create an identical look that’s brighter, more beautiful, and completely flaw-free. Veneers are more resistant to staining than enamel, allowing you to maintain your improved look longer.

There are many different reasons why people seek cosmetic dentistry. For instance, you might want to whiten your teeth, straighten them, or alter their size and shape. No matter what changes you hope to accomplish, there’s a cosmetic treatment that can help you achieve your desired look.

Some of our most popular options include:

  • Teeth Whitening – Professional teeth whitening usually falls in the mid-range when it comes to cost. If you want to improve the color of your smile, this is an excellent affordable option to consider! However, you should keep in mind that it can’t help with tooth position or shape.
  • All-Ceramic Dental Restorations – You don’t have to sacrifice a beautiful appearance to restore your oral health. Thanks to all-ceramic dental restorations, you can maintain a healthy smile without compromising your overall look.
  • Veneers – Although this option is more expensive, it’s the only one capable of transforming several aspects of your smile at once. Best of all, you can enjoy your results for several years with proper care and maintenance!

Many people are hesitant to move forward with cosmetic dentistry because it can feel like a significant financial commitment. However, you should rightly view it as a worthwhile investment that will pay off in the long run! An attractive smile will not only boost your confidence, but it can also lead to a better overall quality of life. It’s proven to increase your chances of career success and positively impact your well-being. At the end of the day, these benefits are priceless!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Because cosmetic dentistry is not considered “medically necessary”, you’ll need to find an alternative way to pay for your treatment. Fortunately, our practice can help you apply for CareCredit financing! It allows you to get the treatment you need without sacrificing your budget. You can split up the total cost into smaller monthly installments to make the overall price more manageable. Plus, they offer many little-to-no interest plans, helping you save even more money.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Whether you’ve been a patient of ours for years or you’re considering visiting us for the first time for a smile makeover, please know that we’re here to answer any questions you have! You can call our office to speak with one of our knowledgeable team members directly, or you’re welcome to bring any questions you have to your consultation. If, however, you’d like to do a bit more research before then, that’s okay too. In that case, here are some common FAQs about cosmetic dentistry!

What Should I Expect at an Initial Consultation for a Smile Makeover?

At your consultation, you’ll sit down with Dr. Prach, our talented cosmetic dentist. In addition to asking you questions to learn all about your smile goals and dental history, she will take X-rays and conduct an oral exam to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for treatment. If they aren’t, don’t worry – we can begin your smile transformation with the necessary restorative care. If they are, on the other hand, then she will share her recommendations, answer any questions you have, and create your custom treatment plan! Before you leave, our knowledgeable team will review the cost with you as well as the financial solutions available.

What Are the Differences Between Lumineers and Veneers?

There are actually several noteworthy differences between Lumineers and veneers! To begin, Lumineers are “reversible,” which means that you can have them removed at any time and your natural teeth will look exactly the same. Veneers, on the other hand, require a small portion of your enamel to be removed, which means that they will need to be covered with a restoration of some kind moving forward. Another important difference is the thickness. Since Lumineers are more translucent, they may not be able to address permanent discoloration like veneers can. That’s why it’s important to consider multiple aspects when deciding between the two, from the cost and the longevity of your results to the dental imperfections you’re looking to fix.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve My Oral Health?

Although the aesthetic benefits are certainly significant, it’s true that cosmetic dentistry can also benefit your oral health. For example, misaligned teeth can increase your risk of gum disease by trapping plaque and food particles. However, one of the biggest reasons cosmetic dentistry can positively impact your oral health is because when you have a smile you’re proud of, you take good care of it! As a result, investing in the look of your grin can indirectly improve your consistency with brushing, flossing, and getting a checkup and cleaning every six months.

What Causes the Discoloration of a Tooth?

Dental discoloration can be the result of both extrinsic and intrinsic factors. Most often, it’s due to dark-colored foods, tobacco use, or certain medications. The good news is that, no matter what the cause is, we can provide you with the bright, beautiful smile you desire. In some cases, professional teeth whitening can remove stubborn stains that have surfaced. Other times, we may recommend veneers since they can address more severe cases of discoloration.
