Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Why should I consider cosmetic dentistry?

Your smile not only makes the first impression; it’s also something people remember for a long time after meeting you. A healthy smile suggests great overall health, a presumption that’s backed by a significant amount of science.

Making the most of your smile with teeth whitening, for example, is a great way to boost your confidence. That can have a direct effect on the way you interact with people at work, in social settings, and in personal relationships.

Some cosmetic dentistry procedures also have dental health benefits. Dental implants, for example, not only restore your smile but also prevent bone loss, and crowns can make it easier to access the space between teeth for better cleaning.

What are some popular cosmetic dentistry options?

There are numerous cosmetic dental procedures at Envision a Smile that can improve the aesthetics of your smile. Some of the more popular options include:

  • Teeth whitening (in-office gel and laser bleaching)
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Veneers
  • Crowns
  • Enamel shaping
  • Bonding
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Implants

Each approach addresses specific needs and has a list of specific pros and cons. For example, teeth whitening at Envision a Smile gives you a much brighter and whiter smile than over-the-counter whitening products - and in only one session!

Many cosmetic dental procedures also have restorative benefits, like implants and crowns. Your Envision a Smile dentist can help you navigate the available options to find the approach that’s right for you.

You’ll never feel rushed to make a decision or pressured to choose a procedure you’re not sure about. And if you’re concerned about the upfront cost, Envision a Smile offers financing through CareCredit and Lending Tree, so you can have the perfect smile you desire thanks to a payment plan that works with your budget and needs.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a great way to achieve a brand new smile in a very short period of time. The veneers themselves are thin porcelain shells that fit over the surface of your natural teeth. They can resolve chipped, cracked, discolored, misshapen, or misaligned teeth.

Your Envision a Smile dentist must remove a very thin portion of your enamel to make room for the veneers. Once that step is complete, they gather impressions or imaging to guide the crafting of your veneers. Once they arrive from the lab, you return to have them cemented into place.

Your new smile is then complete, and you can begin enjoying your results right away.
