Metal-Free Dental Crowns

Often, patients need a tooth repaired that prominently shows when they smile, and for this, we only use natural-looking metal-free crowns. Instead of silver or gold, these crowns are fabricated using 100% dental porcelain that can be color-matched to a patient’s smile. This material is also well-known for its strength and durability, meaning that any tooth we repair it with will resemble a real tooth in every way. With this kind of restoration, only you and our team will know that you’ve had dental work!

Teeth Whitening

In our society, white teeth say a lot of positive things about a person, and unfortunately, the opposite is also true for someone dealing with persistent stains. If you’d like to brighten your smile six, seven, or even eight shades, we can help with our professional whitening treatments. These are much stronger than anything you can buy in the store, and you can trust the results to last. Whether you have a complete treatment done in our dental office in an hour or use one of our take-home kits, we know you’ll love the dramatic results.

Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional metal braces are still the most reliable, durable, and cost-effective orthodontic treatment available today, able to effectively address a wide variety of teeth and jaw alignment issues for patients of all ages. If you’re looking for a guaranteed way to get a straighter smile for either yourself or your child, braces are the way to go. They still work in the same trusted manner, but they now have a much sleeker and subtle appearance.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

If you’re looking to straighten your crooked teeth, but you’re worried that braces will affect your professional daily appearance, then Invisalign is the treatment for you. This system uses a series of crystal-clear plastic aligner trays to shift the teeth in the most subtle and comfortable way possible. The trays are practically invisible on the teeth, and you can even take them out whenever it’s time to eat or brush. In the end, the only thing people will notice about Invisalign is the gorgeous new smile it gives you!

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

We completely understand the importance of knowing the price before signing on the dotted line. That’s why we provide price estimates at each consultation! Until we know more about your specific dental needs and smile goals, however, we can’t give you an accurate number or even a general price range. Fortunately, you can still learn more about the cost of cosmetic dentistry by reading on!

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

That’s a great question, and one we will find the answer to at your consultation. After all, no two patients have the same smile, and many have different aesthetic goals. For example, while one patient may want to address stubborn stains with teeth whitening, the next may want to improve the size, shape, and shade of several teeth with veneers. Similarly, while one patient may be a candidate for Invisalign, the next may have a severe case of malocclusion that requires traditional orthodontics.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Patients are often curious whether or not cosmetic dentistry is an investment worth making. The short answer is “yes.” After all, improving the appearance of your smile can benefit more than just your confidence – it can benefit your success in your personal and professional life too! In fact, several studies have found that your smile is one of the first things others notice about you and that job applicants who had undergone teeth whitening treatment were more likely to get an offer (and at a higher salary). So, it’s safe to say that cosmetic dentistry can benefit you in more ways than one.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Questions about cosmetic dentistry

You can have the picture-perfect smile you desire with the help of your cosmetic dentist; however, it’s normal to have some apprehensions before you’re ready to move forward. Your dental team will take the time to explain everything and address any concerns to help you make the best decision for your smile. While you wait for your cosmetic consultation, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions.



Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?

You don’t have to be rich or famous to benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Contrary to popular belief, it’s affordable for people from all walks of life because you have more options than ever to choose from. After examining your mouth and learning more about your goals, your dentist will recommend a treatment to fit your needs and budget. Our office accepts various payment methods to keep the smile of your dreams affordable, like third-party financing. You can pay any out-of-pocket balance using monthly installments with little or no interest based on your credit approval.


How long does cosmetic dentistry last?

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t a single procedure. It consists of multiple treatments, each with a different lifespan. Some can last for several months, while others can thrive for a decade or more. Your dentist will explain the life expectancy of your new smile and what you can do to get the most from your investment, like brushing, flossing, and using a daily mouthwash. It’s best to eat a nutritious diet and limit anything hard or sticky. Your dentist will advise against chewing on inedible objects or using our teeth in place of tools. Visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup to ensure your dazzling new smile lasts for many years.


Does cosmetic dentistry hurt?

You don’t have to worry about spending a painful day in the dental chair. Your dentist will keep your comfort a priority. Although it isn’t always necessary, they may use a local numbing agent or sedative to block any pain signals. While you won’t feel any discomfort during your procedure, some treatments can cause temporary tenderness, which can be managed using an OTC pain reliever. Your dentist may recommend additional tips, like eating softer foods or chewing on the opposite side of your mouth.


Can I use my dental insurance to pay for cosmetic dentistry?

Most dental plans don’t cover elective procedures unless they are medically necessary. Many cosmetic treatments also provide restorative benefits, like dental bonding or all-ceramic crowns. If your dentist determines treatment is crucial for your oral health, like fixing a broken tooth, you may be able to use your coverage to offset the cost. Every plan differs, but most policies can pay up to 80% of the cost for restorative procedures after meeting your deductible. Don’t worry, a member of our team will work on your behalf to maximize any appropriate coverage and explain your payment options for any remaining balance.
