Cosmetic dentistry might not affect the overall health of your teeth, but many affordable cosmetic dentistry options can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.
Prices do vary for procedures like veneers, teeth whitening, gap closures, etc., but some orthodontic services (i.e. braces) could be covered in your insurance plan. Find out if cosmetic dentistry is right for you.
Clear Braces and Retainers (Invisalign®)
Clear braces for adults and children alike can help you achieve straighter teeth without the obvious appearance of traditional braces. The Invisalign® process involves a thorough evaluation of your teeth, followed by the creation of a custom mold to wear according to the instructions of your dentist or orthodontist.
Teeth whitening is a relatively inexpensive procedure that can be performed at the dentist, or by using home teeth whitening products. Professional teeth whitening methods involve pastes, gels, and UV lights or lasers to help you safely achieve a bright long-lasting smile. Whitening procedures can yield results in just a single dentist visit.
Dental veneers are tailor-made from thinly-cut porcelain or composite resin material to fit the surface of your teeth to improve the shape and color of your smile. There are two types of veneers: removable veneers and permanent veneers. The cost of veneers will vary depending on how many teeth/which teeth you’d like to cover.
Flexible partial dentures cost less than dental bridges, yet they restore the function and appearance of broken or missing teeth. There are many types of partial denture materials to choose from, including porcelain, resin, and acrylic. Removable partial dentures, or flippers, are available to those who experience difficulty eating with partial dentures.
