These lifelike sheets of ceramic can cover gapped, chipped, undersized, discolored, and otherwise flawed teeth and present a perfectly balanced, natural-looking smile that you’ll be proud to show the world. That’s why so many celebrities and Hollywood actors have had this treatment!

As unattractive as a cavity or broken tooth can appear, you don’t want to have a metal filling or crown attracting the wrong kind of attention either. To make minor and major repairs, we have durable materials that contain absolutely no metal and are created with your smile’s look in mind. With these realistic solutions, you won’t have to worry about your damaged teeth ruining your smile and your confidence.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you’re considering veneers, but you’d like to find a more cost-effective solution, cosmetic bonding may be the right choice for you. Not only can this option save you money on treatment, but the entire process can usually be completed in just one appointment, saving you time as well! With cosmetic bonding, we use composite resin to fill in chips and gaps, hide stubborn stains, and reshape small or deformed teeth—all without removing any enamel.

Teeth Whitening

You’ve likely seen many products on the shelves that claim to whiten teeth, but the reality is that you’ll only see two or three shades of improvement. If you’re looking for real results, you need professional-grade whitening. In our dental office, you can either brighten your teeth here in our Richmond dental office, or you can use a custom take-home kit. Either way, your smile will look up to eight shades whiter!

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

Oftentimes, there’s more than one treatment that can help you make the changes you want to your grin. Naturally, each service has a different price tag attached. Here’s a brief look at some of our cosmetic dentistry options:

  • Teeth Whitening: If you’re thinking of brightening your smile, professional teeth whitening is likely the first treatment to come to mind. The cost of this cosmetic procedure is usually in the mid-range. Remember, teeth whitening only changes the color of your teeth; other services may be needed if you want to correct tooth shape or position.
  • Cosmetic Bonding: This procedure lets you significantly improve the appearance of your smile just by making a few small changes to your teeth. This is a very cost-effective cosmetic option, but it normally has to be redone after a few years.
  • Veneers: Veneers can make several changes to your smile at once. This treatment normally has a higher cost, but it’s also a long-lasting solution; oftentimes, well-cared-for veneers can last more than a decade.

Why It Can Be Worth Investing in Cosmetic Dentistry

Using cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile can pay off in more ways than you might think. Getting rid of the flaws on your teeth can boost your confidence and encourage you to smile more often, which can have a positive influence on the way other people see you. This can go a long way toward enhancing your social life. Also, a beautiful smile can help you make a better first impression, which is extremely important at job interviews and business meetings.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

One of the biggest concerns that many people tend to have when considering cosmetic dentistry is that it usually isn’t covered by dental insurance. However, some dental plans might be willing to pay for part of a cosmetic treatment if it benefits oral health in some way; this often applies to metal-free restorations.

Even if dental insurance isn’t an option, you can still make cosmetic dentistry more affordable by signing up for our in-house membership plan. Among the many benefits that our plan offers is a 15% discount on all of our services, which includes our cosmetic procedures.

Finally, if you apply for a CareCredit financing plan, you can pay for your treatment in monthly installments that can easily fit into your budget. There are several CareCredit plans you can choose from, each with low to no interest.

Which procedures will be right for me?

There isn’t any way to determine which procedures will meet your needs without first performing an examination and learning more about your goals. Every treatment plan is personalized to each patient’s needs. Depending on the results of your consultation, we may recommend one or more procedures, which can include:

  • Porcelain Veneers: A veneer covers the entire front surface of a tooth to improve its color, size, and shape. It can instantly hide a variety of issues, like discoloration and chips.
  • Metal-Free Dental Restorations: Modern restorations are made of all-ceramic material, which allows them to look like real teeth. Although they are often used in restorative dentistry, they have cosmetic benefits as well.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: A tooth-colored material can fix several minor flaws, like chips or cracks. It will match your enamel to blend in with your teeth.
  • Teeth Whitening: Your teeth can become as much as 8 shades whiter using a professional whitening treatment. Your results can last for many years with the right care.

How long will the process take?

The duration of your treatment depends on your plan. Some procedures can be performed in a single visit, like cosmetic dental bonding or teeth whitening. Other procedures may require multiple appointments, such as veneers. We’ll explain how long you can expect your treatment to take during your consultation. We know your time is valuable, which is why we use the latest technologies and techniques to reduce how long you’re in the dental chair.

How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

There isn’t a set fee for cosmetic dentistry because the cost is based on several factors, like the procedure and number of teeth being treated. We’ll provide you with a custom estimate and explain the cost of your treatment. Our office accepts a variety of payment methods to help you find the solutions you need to achieve your goals without breaking the bank, like third-party financing. You are given the funds you need based on your credit’s approval. You’ll repay the amount using a plan that fits your budget.

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

Every insurance policy is unique, but most plans don’t offer coverage for cosmetic dentistry because the procedures are elective. There are some exceptions because many cosmetic and restorative procedures overlap. As a result, if a treatment is necessary for your dental health, your insurance may cover a portion of the cost, like dental bonding. We’ll help you maximize your annual benefits to offset the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket.
