In just two appointments, you can transform your smile seemingly overnight and do so in an incredibly quick fashion. During your consultation, we’ll go over your smile goals and create a treatment plan that meets your needs.

In the event that a tooth in your smile becomes chipped or severely stained, there is a way to effectively resolve these imperfections at an affordable price. Cosmetic bonding makes use of composite resin, just like tooth-colored fillings, to reshape the appearance of your individual teeth. Not only is it quick and easy to hide these imperfections, but the material used is durable and long-lasting when you practice daily oral care.

In general, most cosmetic dentistry patients want to achieve whiter, straighter, and/or differently shaped or sized teeth. Your cosmetic dentist in Garland can help determine which treatment is right for you. Common cosmetic services include:  

  • Bonding – Quick and affordable, bonding is great for small changes to address chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. While bonding is usually the cheapest option of the bunch, touch-ups are typically required every few years.
  • Metal-Free Restorations – Protect a damaged or weakened teeth in style with metal-free restorations. These restorations make use of durable dental ceramic that’s custom-shaded to blend in with your smile.
  • Veneers – Veneers can upgrade one tooth, several teeth, or your entire smile! Made from thin sheaths of porcelain, veneers typically cost more than bonding but can last over a decade with proper care.
  • Teeth Whitening – Professional teeth whitening can make your smile dazzle! Usually a mid-range option in terms of cost, teeth whitening can typically be performed in a single visit to a dentist’s office or gradually with take-home kits.
  • Invisalign – Clear braces can correct crooked, crowded, or otherwise misaligned teeth. Invisalign treatment does require a significant investment in terms of both time and cost.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Are you interested in having a more confident smile but aren’t sure where to start? Our team at La Prada Family Dentistry can guide you on exactly how to bring about the changes you need to make your dream smile a reality. We’ll be more than happy to recommend which treatments you need and ensure a comfortable and safe process from start to finish. Before your appointment, we encourage you to read the answers to some of the most common questions we get about cosmetic dentistry so that you feel slightly more prepared.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry is fully safe for the majority of patients. Of course, your cosmetic dentist in Garland will need to verify that you have no untreated oral health issues that could affect your treatment, which is where the initial consultation is vital. Placing a veneer on a decayed tooth, for example, could weaken the tooth even further and lead to complications later on.

Professional cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening from our office, are also safer than the over-the-counter versions you’ll find elsewhere. Plus, they’re much more effective and comfortable!

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

We understand that you might feel nervous at the idea of getting dental work done, even if it’s being done to correct the imperfections in your smile. Don’t worry – our team will take any additional steps necessary to be sure that you feel right at home the entire time, such as offering nitrous oxide sedation.

Many of our popular cosmetic services, such as dental bonding, are so minimally invasive that most patients don’t even need local anesthesia to have a painless experience. For more extensive treatments, like veneers, we’ll have to numb your mouth prior to beginning. This means you won’t feel pain during the procedure, although your mouth may be sore for the next day or two. In most cases, any residual discomfort should be mild enough to manage with over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Truthfully, nearly any adult who is in some way dissatisfied with their teeth’s appearance could likely benefit from cosmetic dentistry. If you wish your teeth weren’t so dull, then our KoR whitening treatment may be just the thing you need for a brighter grin. If you’d like to cover up broken or worn teeth, then you may be interested in veneers or metal-free crowns. No matter what problem you have with your smile, chances are there’s a way that cosmetic dentistry can help! When you visit us for your consultation, our dentists will help you explore all of your options and determine whether cosmetic dentistry can be the perfect solution for you.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Cosmetic dentistry might seem like it’s only accessible to the rich and famous, but that’s not necessarily true! These services tend to not qualify for dental insurance coverage, which may be where this misconception has come from. Even if you end up paying for your smile transformation out-of-pocket, keep in mind that this is an investment that pays major dividends down the road. With a newfound sense of confidence comes a priceless self-esteem boost as well as an improved social life and even more opportunities for career advancement.
