Why Choose 918 Dentist of Glenpool for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Invisalign® Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
- Skilled and Caring Dentist
- Stain-Resistant Veneers
For healthy but cosmetically imperfect front teeth, porcelain veneers offer a transformative solution. These thin restorations are customized to match your unique facial structure and then affixed to the front side of the teeth that show when you smile. Completed in two visits to our dental office, dental veneers are made of dental porcelain, which is a sturdy material that is highly resistant to stains, so this treatment is also something like permanent teeth whitening!
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Many adults would like to improve the alignment of their teeth, but few are willing to wear metal brackets and wires for a year or more. Fortunately, Invisalign clear aligners offer an alternative to visible orthodontia! Adults and older teens alike are often eligible for this treatment, which uses a series of customized trays to gradually shift the teeth into the proper position. The average treatment lasts from 1 to 2 years.
All-Ceramic Dental Crowns
When the form and function of one or more teeth have been affected, all-ceramic crowns provide a beautiful blend of restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Customized restorations made of this material can stop decay and help to preserve the tooth in the gum line. And because dental porcelain reflects light in the same way that your natural tooth enamel does, no one will notice anything different after the tooth has been restored. In fact, you may not, either!
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Unlike veneers and crowns that are normally placed over the course of multiple visits, cosmetic bonding offers a faster cosmetic solution during a single appointment. The process employs the same composite resin used to fill cavities to hide chips and cracks; it can also improve the color, shape, or length of the tooth. Bonding requires no preparation, and it usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour. It’s the perfect, affordable treatment for correcting a few minor flaws!
Professional teeth whitening is a wonderful way to enjoy a more youthful and vibrant smile. With in-office and take-home options available, it is easy to whiten your teeth at the pace that fits your schedule and budget best. Professional teeth whitening can be expected to break through even severe stains and leave the teeth up to 8 shades brighter. With proper care and great oral hygiene, the results from teeth whitening can last for years!
Laser Gum Recontouring
It almost doesn’t matter how healthy your teeth are when you have an uneven gum line or if your white tooth enamel is covered up by excessive gum tissue. Fortunately, problems with the appearance of your gums can be quickly fixed with laser gum recontouring. This method is greatly preferred compared to conventional gum surgeries, which require the use of a scalpel and sutures. Laser gum recontouring is more comfortable, minimizes bleeding, and speeds up healing.
Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
With the exception of dental crowns for restorative purposes, cosmetic dentistry procedures are mostly paid out-of-pocket by the patient. This means that you’re responsible for paying the entire cost without using insurance benefits, which don’t typically cover cosmetic expenses. However, our team is more than willing to work with you to identify the treatment that works for both your smile and your wallet. Regardless of your situation, the incalculable value of a brilliant, radiant smile is an investment worth making.
Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right For Me?
Not all of the procedures we offer come at the same price. Compared to more complex treatments like veneers, teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding incur a low cost, but the procedure you choose should provide the results you want. During your consultation, we can discuss your options based on what you envision for your dream smile, and we’ll help you find the treatment that can get you there—within your budget!
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be Worth the Investment
There are some things in life that are priceless, and a confident smile is one of them. Countless studies have found that a good-looking smile can make a person seem more friendly, appealing, successful, and trustworthy. When you meet someone new, whether socially or professionally, your smile is one of the first things they notice about you, and it can help or hinder your relationships from the start. When you have confidence in your smile and yourself, there’s no telling how far you can go!
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
Knowing that insurance probably won’t help, you do have a few options available when you work with our team. For instance, with the 918 Dentist Loyalty Plan, you not only can receive the standard preventive care you need, but you can get a significant discount on veneers. If you find that the total is overwhelming to pay all at once, you can apply for low-interest financing through CareCredit. We can help you through the entire process, which allows you to make payments on a monthly basis and is easier to manage basically in any budget.
Cosmetic Dentist Frequently Asked Questions
When seeking treatment from a cosmetic dentist in Glenpool, it’s important to have realistic expectations about your treatment. That means making sure that you fully understand the treatment you’re receiving and what you can expect during the procedure. Below are some of the more common questions from patients looking to improve their smiles. If you have any questions of your own, feel free to contact us and schedule a consultation.
Will dental insurance cover my cosmetic procedure?
You will need to review your policy to see if your carrier will pay for cosmetic procedures. Most of the time, there won’t be any coverage for procedures such as whitening that are only meant to improve the appearance of the teeth. However, certain procedures, such as all-ceramic crowns and tooth-colored fillings, can fall under both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. You might receive benefits for a cosmetic treatment if it’s necessary to improve your health.
We are in-network with a wide variety of dental plans and are happy to help file out-of-network patients file claims so that they can get the benefits they deserve. Third-party financing through CareCredit is also available.
Can children and teens benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
If your teen has concerns about their smile, they might benefit from certain cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening. In particular, if they don’t want to wear traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth, they might be able to get Invisalign clear braces instead.
Your younger child may be able to benefit from some forms of cosmetic dentistry. You can schedule a consultation to discuss what kind of improvements you and your child want to make. We’ll check the state of their oral health and go over the available options with you so that you can make a decision that keeps your little one’s smile safe.
How long will the process take?
Treatment time depends largely on the type of cosmetic dentistry. For example, if you get your teeth whitened, you’ll be able to leave our dental office with a brighter smile after just one visit. On the other hand, placing porcelain veneers or crowns usually takes at least two appointments (one to prepare the tooth, and the other to place the restoration once it has been made). Since Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment, you can normally expect it to last between 1 or 2 years. We’ll go over the treatment plan with you during the first consultation; we can also discuss alternative treatments if you want quicker results.
Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?
In general, you need to have good oral health in order to have cosmetic improvements made. If you have gum disease, the infection will need to be treated first. Apart from that, your candidacy for any given cosmetic procedure will depend largely on the changes you want to make. When you come in for your initial consultation, make sure you tell us exactly what you want to achieve; it might help to bring photos to illustrate your point.
