Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a one-treatment-fixes-all service that can address a variety of imperfections, such as severe staining, slight misalignment, and broken or damage teeth. They are individually, custom-crafted shells made from dental porcelain, which is a stain-resistant and durable material. Each of the shells are placed over the visible surface of your teeth to protect them and reveal a completed, even, and bright smile that fits your desires. One great advantage about veneers is that, whether you need one or all of your teeth repaired, they can do it all!

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Will cosmetic dentistry fit into your budget? This is a question you need to consider carefully before you commit to any treatments; after all, most dental insurance plans don’t include coverage for purely cosmetic procedures. Luckily, you have our reliable dental team to aid you in helping you come up with a strategy to get the smile of your dreams while also staying within your budget. Don’t hesitate to speak with us if you have questions regarding the cost of cosmetic dentistry.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

We can only answer this question once we know what state your teeth are currently in as well as what kinds of improvements you have in mind. Below is a list of some of the cosmetic services we offer and what you can expect from them cost-wise:

  • Veneers: Veneers are generally seen as one of the more costly options when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. However, they are also an excellent choice for making multiple changes to your smile at once.
  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening typically has a lower cost than veneers, and it can be quite effective for addressing discolored spots on your teeth. It should be noted, though, that the treatment doesn’t have any effect on tooth size, shape, or position.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign provides a reliable way to correct crooked teeth and close gaps in your grin. That being said, it does tend to cost more than other cosmetic treatments.

When you visit our office for a consultation, we can discuss the costs of any cosmetic dental treatments that you might be considering in more detail.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Why do so many people invest in improving their smiles? For one thing, when you are happy with the way your grin looks, you’re likely to feel a lot more comfortable about showing it off; as a result, you may see a boost in your overall confidence. Furthermore, a dazzling smile can make a big difference during job interviews and other events where a first impression counts. Finally, smiling more often can help you seem more approachable, which can have a positive impact on your professional life as well as your social life.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

It should be noted that while dental insurance typically will not pay for veneers and teeth whitening, some plans may include orthodontic coverage for Invisalign and Six Month Smiles treatments. It’s always worth double-checking your plan to see what benefits are available. On top of that, we work with Springstone Patient Financing. This gives our patients the option of applying for financing plans that make paying for their treatment easier.

We care about helping you achieve the smile you want without breaking the bank; you can count on us to help you explore your options for making cosmetic dentistry more affordable.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Cosmetic dentistry is a truly amazing field that combines art and science to improve both the health and appearance of your pearly whites. It can give you the confidence to achieve more success in both your personal and professional life. However, since most people aren’t aware of the finer details of cosmetic dentistry, you might have some questions. That’s why we’ve taken the time to answer some of the cosmetic dentistry questions that we get asked the most often here at Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center.

Will My Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?

Insurance coverage for cosmetic services tend to vary from plan to plan. In general, most insurance carriers don’t cover the cost of cosmetic treatments, but it’s always best to check with your individual policy to make sure. If you need help getting in touch with your insurance company, our team is more than happy to assist you.

It’s also worth pointing out that some cosmetic treatments, like Invisalign or Six Month Smiles, overlap into orthodontics, which is covered at least partially under most insurance plans, especially for younger patients. Again, it’s always in your best interest to check which services your insurance carrier will cover.

Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Virtually anyone who feels that their smile could be enhanced in some way could benefit from seeing a cosmetic dentist. The treatments we offer can help correct a variety of aesthetic imperfections, such as misaligned teeth, chips, cracks, stains, or minor gaps. No matter which of these flaws lie within your smile, we can help you achieve a set of pearly whites that you just can’t wait to show off.

Can My Teenager Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?

While most cosmetic procedures aren’t recommended for younger children, teens can definitely improve their smiles with some of these services. In particular, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are quite popular with high school students. If you’re the parent of a teen, you’re already aware that they can be especially self-conscious about their appearance. We’re here to help your son or daughter attain a grin they can be proud of with cosmetic dentistry.

How Long Will It Take to Achieve Results?

The timeline involved with cosmetic dentistry is different for every procedure. For example, while teeth whitening can sometimes be completed in just one appointment, Invisalign takes an average of 12-18 months to fully straighten your pearly whites. Rest assured that no matter how long it takes, the end result will be 100% worth the wait. At your consultation, we can go over a more detailed and customized treatment timeline with you.
