Porcelain Veneers

Veneers allow anyone to achieve a red-carpet-ready smile in as little as two appointments. Thin, custom-made shells of porcelain are bonded to the front of the teeth, masking any imperfections while creating a more uniform and attractive look. They can be used to cover stains, chips, cracks, and gaps all at the same time, and with minimal maintenance, they can easily be expected to last for 20 years.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

If you need a tooth to be repaired, you shouldn’t have to worry about sacrificing your smile’s appearance in the process. Instead of using obviously fake metal crowns, we use porcelain restorations that both look natural and can be trusted to stand the test of time. In addition to fixing structural damage, our crowns can also be used to enhance oddly shaped or undersized teeth to create a more balanced and eye-catching smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

We can make a small stain, chip, or gap disappear in as little as an hour with cosmetic bonding. Your dentist will apply a small amount of composite resin to the compromised enamel and sculpt it to cover the offending area, leaving nothing but a flawless-looking tooth. After the resin has been hardened and polished, that’s it, and the results can be trusted to last for about 10 years.

Teeth Whitening

You’ll find plenty of teeth whitening products on store shelves these days, but most of them are long on promises and short on results. If you want a guaranteed way to achieve a brighter smile, then the most dependable method is one of our professional treatments. You can choose between a quick in-office procedure or a custom-made take-home kit, both of which use a bleaching gel multiple times stronger than anything you can buy on your own. With either method, you’ll easily achieve a smile that is six to eight shades lighter!

Gum Recontouring

Is your gum line uneven, or does it overshadow your teeth when you smile, causing them to look undersized and out of proportion? Gum recontouring can address these kinds of problems directly by removing excess gum tissue to reveal previously hidden enamel. This results in longer, more shapely teeth, as well as a smile that has the perfect balance.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Even if you’re interested in cosmetic dentistry, you might hesitate due to the cost. That’s understandable, especially since it’s often not covered by dental insurance. Still, we at Meadowbrook Dental Care can help you figure out what works best for your situation. Our various treatments have different price points, so our team will surely find a way to give you cost-effective service.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

When it comes to beautifying your smile, you’re likely looking for one (or more) of these three benefits: whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or differently-shaped teeth. Our practice has treatments that offer all such things, including the following:

  • Gum Recontouring – A low-cost treatment, gum recontouring removes excess gum tissue that contributes to “gummy” smiles. Without the extra pink stuff in the way, your white enamel has more room to shine!
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding – This option uses tooth-colored resin to reshape damaged teeth and hide smile flaws. It’s one of our cheapest services, though it doesn’t last as long as other treatments — usually about three to ten years.
  • Teeth Whitening – Per its name, this treatment whitens teeth and works for patients who want to remove tooth stains. While it doesn’t help with tooth shape or position, it’s relatively fast and has a mid-range cost.
  • Metal-free Restorations – Ceramic crowns and fillings can protect teeth from damage and hide their fractured areas. In exchange, though, they usually have a higher price range.
  • Porcelain Veneers – While one of the more expensive options, these porcelain layers transform many aspects of your smile at once. Plus, they can last for twenty years or more with proper care.

Cosmetic Dentistry is a Worthy Investment

True enough, cosmetic dentistry can be a big financial commitment. However, it’s a great long-term investment that pays off over time. If you’re the sort who feels self-conscious about their smile, cosmetic dental work can bring massive boosts to confidence and self-esteem. From there, you’re likely to experience better relationships, career advancements, and a higher quality of life. In short, the cost of treatment is outweighed by priceless benefits.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

As mentioned before, purely cosmetic dental care isn’t often covered by dental insurance. Fortunately enough, however, there are other ways to make treatment costs affordable.

For instance, take a look at our practice’s dental savings plan. In exchange for a low membership fee, this option gives you 20% off all our basic and major services — including cosmetic dentistry! Furthermore, it also offers unlimited consultations, examinations, and X-rays.

On the other hand, you could also take advantage of our flexible financing options. By working with services like CareCredit, Proceed, and SunBit, we allow patients to pay for treatments in monthly installments. That way, you can split the overall cost into more budget-friendly payments.
