Do you wish you could completely transform your smile with only a single treatment? With the versatility of porcelain veneers, you don’t have to resort to multiple treatments just to achieve a beautiful smile. These ultra-thin sheaths of dental ceramic rest on the visible surfaces of your smile, effectively hiding discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps and even mildly misaligned teeth! Overall, it only takes two appointments to achieve a smile that lasts for many years.
We understand that not everyone is comfortable receiving restorations that contain metal materials. That’s why, regardless of the type of restoration you need, you can expect our dental office to supply you with eMax and Zirconium crowns. While these restorations are metal-free, they do not sacrifice durability in order to give your smile a more natural-looking appearance. Plus, their biocompatible nature ensures that they stay in your mouth comfortably and integrate naturally with your existing oral structures.
Even when you’re looking at a row of otherwise perfect teeth, a single crack, chip or other minor detail can be incredibly distracting. Fixing these minor issues shouldn’t be difficult or expensive to complete, which is where cosmetic bonding comes in. This putty-like composite resin can be easily molded, blended and adhered to teeth to hide a number of imperfections. Once applied, our dentists will harden the material using a special curing light.
Teeth are incredibly susceptible to stains because of the porous nature of tooth enamel. When your smile is looking dull or yellow, sometimes a quick touch-up is all you need to feel confident to show it off again! Opalescence® BOOST allows us to get your smile multiple shades whiter in as little as 40 minutes! Those who find themselves on the go or unable to get to our dental office can also benefit from Opalescence® GO, a take-home form of the same treatment. Both use powerful bleaching gels that you can only get from Dr. Crofoot or Dr. Snarr.
Are you unsure which treatment is right for you? We understand that having multiple cosmetic options can feel overwhelming. That’s why our dental office is happy to offer digital software that shows the outcome of your cosmetic treatment before it even occurs! By providing us an up-to-date photo, we can adjust the image to highlight what your smile looks like after receiving whitening treatment, porcelain veneers or another option you’re considering. We’ll even print the photo for you to take home if you’d prefer!
You can’t put a price on having a gorgeous grin that boosts your confidence and makes you happy to meet new people. At Cornerstone Family Dental, Drs. Crofoot and Snarr work closely with their patients to gift them with absolutely stunning results that they simply can’t wait to show off. In order to help you feel confident about starting your journey to a more beautiful smile, we’ve answered some frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry down below.
Every dental insurance plan is different, so each of them offers varying levels of coverage. More often than not, cosmetic services are not covered by insurance. However, there are almost always exceptions, such as when a dental crown is used to repair a tooth that is structurally damaged as well as aesthetically flawed. Before you begin treatment, our team can evaluate your insurance plan and check for any available benefits. If you still need help paying for your treatment, we partner with third-party financing programs CareCredit and Lending Club. These options help you fund your treatment with very little or even zero interest rates.
It’s nearly impossible to answer this question because each and every smile is different. Your treatment timeline may vary based on the severity of your cosmetic flaws and what kind of results you’d like to achieve. The only way to know for sure how long your treatment will take is to schedule a cosmetic consultation with us. During this appointment, our dentists can examine your mouth and lay out a personalized timeline estimate that should answer any questions you may have.
While your smile makeover won’t last forever, you can make it last as long as possible with the right care. In many cases, this care is exactly the same as it should have been before your treatment. Brush twice a day, floss every evening, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to keep your pearly whites clean and healthy. It also helps to attend dental checkups and cleanings on a regular basis. At these appointments, we can ensure that your smile continues to shine brightly.
Most people who are dissatisfied with some aspect of the way their smile looks can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Ideal candidates for these services are willing to address any lingering oral health issues and keep up with a diligent dental hygiene routine. If you have problems such as gum disease or tooth decay, they’ll need to be treated before you can undergo cosmetic procedures.
