Practically any imperfection in your smile can be easily corrected with veneers – thin ceramic shells that are bonded to the fronts of the teeth. Once placed, veneers immediately cover up discoloration, chips, cracks, small gaps between teeth, or even small alignment issues. We can design and place veneers in as little as two appointments, and you can be sure that your results will be dazzling and natural-looking.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

When a broken tooth needs fixing, you don’t want a dark metal crown shining a spotlight on it. Luckily, you won’t need to worry about that, as we offer dental crowns made from metal-free, lifelike materials such as porcelain and zirconia. Since these types of crowns can be meticulously shaded to mimic your natural teeth, no one – not even you – should be able to differentiate it from any other tooth!

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Perhaps the most convenient cosmetic dentistry service we offer, cosmetic bonding is perfect for addressing minor smile flaws in a single visit to our dental office. We simply take custom-shaded composite resin (which we also use for tooth-colored fillings) and sculpt it over the imperfections until they look as if they’d never existed in the first place. Bonding is quite a versatile solution, as it can correct small chips, gaps, cracks, stains, and more.

Teeth Whitening

It's normal for teeth to discolor over time for all sorts of reasons, including tobacco, dark-colored foods and beverages, certain medications, and even the natural aging process. If you’d like to restore your smile’s shine, you may have tried commercial teeth whitening products only to be disappointed with the lackluster results. Our professional-strength whitening treatments can brighten your smile much more quickly, comfortably, and dramatically. In addition to fast in-office whitening, we offer custom trays that you can use at home.

Gum Recontouring

When you smile, does more gum show than teeth? If so, you’ll be happy to know that we can correct “gummy smiles” with gum recontouring. We can use a soft tissue laser to trim the overgrown or uneven gum tissue, creating a more even appearance and letting your pearly whites shine.

Virtual Smile Design

Maybe you’re interested in a particular cosmetic service, but you don’t want to commit to it without knowing how you’ll feel about the results. Our virtual smile design system lets you preview any treatment before even starting! The highly advanced software can digitally modify a picture of your smile to show how it would look with whitening, veneers, or any other cosmetic service so that you can feel confident moving forward with the treatment.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Although you may be excited to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, it’s natural to also worry about the associated pricing. Most dental insurance policies don’t cover the cost of elective services intended to enhance your appearance, but we believe your budget shouldn’t keep you from having the flawless teeth you deserve. We’re happy to work with you to find a way to upgrade your grin without breaking the bank.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

There are several ways that Dr. Miller can improve the look and feel of your smile, so before you can decide on a treatment, you must first have a consultation appointment. He’ll take this time to get to know you and your unique goals and concerns as well as ensure that your mouth is healthy, first. Then, depending on the changes you’d like to make, he might recommend one of the following options:

  • Dental bonding. This is a cost-effective, non-invasive way to mend or mask issues like chips, cracks, discoloration, and minor gaps. It’s typically less pricey than veneers and can last 3 to 10+ years with the right care.
  • Gum recontouring. If you have an overly gummy grin, we can reshape it using a soft tissue laser for a reasonable fee.
  • Teeth whitening. One of the simplest and cheapest ways to enhance your teeth and can usually be completed in a single, hour-long appointment or with customized take-home kits.
  • Veneers. These thin, ceramic shells cost more than dental bonding but can last 20+ years, making them an excellent long-term solution.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry an Investment Worth Making?

If you’re intimidated by the idea of putting money into your smile, you’re not alone. Many patients want to know that their investment will be worth it. However, because aesthetic issues in your teeth can impact how you and others perceive you, addressing them can boost your confidence. You could see improvements in other areas of your life as a result. If you have an important job interview, family event, or first date around the corner then you’re much more likely to be successful when you’re looking and feeling your best.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Because dental insurance plans don’t usually contribute to cosmetic treatments, we offer other options that help make your desired services more budget-friendly. If you’re concerned about the cost, you could benefit from one of the other options available, including:

  • Flexible financing. We’ve partnered with 3rd party financers like CareCredit and Cherry so that if you’re approved, you can break down your total invoice into more manageable installments.
  • In-house memberships. We offer several choices at different price points so that you can pick one that works for you. All plans come with 15% discounts or more on select services.

We’re happy to provide you with a detailed estimate of your cosmetic work once you’ve had your consultation and have decided on appropriate treatments. If you’re still concerned about the total amount due, let us know and we’ll do everything we can to help you afford the smile of your dreams.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

The path to a better smile looks different for every patient. As such, we routinely receive all kinds of questions about our various cosmetic dental services, and we go out of our way to answer each of them with as much detail as possible. We want to help guide our patients toward the right decisions for achieving the beautiful grins that they have been dreaming of! Before you reach out to our office, check the FAQs below to see if we have already answered the questions that are on your mind.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Cosmetic dental bonding and teeth whitening tend to have shorter lifespans than other cosmetic treatments. On the other hand, veneers and metal-free crowns are both very durable and can last for quite a while before eventually needing to be replaced. With gum recontouring, the results can last the rest of your life since the removed gum tissue will not regenerate. We can give you an estimate of how long your new smile will last after we have helped you narrow down which treatment(s) you want to pursue.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

When you visit us for any type of cosmetic dental treatment, your safety will be in the hands of our capable, caring team. We’re fully dedicated to protecting the health of your teeth while also improving their appearance.

Before you move forward with veneers or another smile-enhancing service, we will thoroughly examine your mouth. Any oral health issues that you are currently suffering from must be treated before you can be considered a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. We will let you know what steps need to be taken to address the problems inside your mouth before we can put together a plan for enhancing your grin.

What’s the Difference Between a Crown and a Veneer?

Veneers and crowns are somewhat similar in that they are used to cover your teeth. However, a veneer only conceals the front part of the tooth while a crown covers the entire dental structure. Moreover, veneers are specifically made to hide cosmetic imperfections such as small cracks or stubborn dental stains; crowns are meant to correct serious oral health issues, like teeth that have suffered from extensive damage or decay. Once we have had a chance to take a look at your teeth, we can help you figure out whether a crown or a veneer best fits your needs.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

More often than not, you should not expect your dental insurance plan to help pay for cosmetic dental procedures since they are considered elective. That being said, though, if a treatment with cosmetic benefits also improves your oral health, it may be eligible for coverage. For example, metal-free restorations and veneers that are used to protect damaged teeth could potentially be at least partially covered. It never hurts to double-check your dental insurance plan to see what benefits are available.
