Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are often the ideal cosmetic solution for patients who would like to give their smile a comprehensive “do-over.” These precisely customized, wafer-thin dental restorations are designed to fit over just the visible surfaces of certain teeth instead of the entire structure. Their placement hides years of flaws all at once behind a pleasing, natural appearance you can show off with pride. We will be sure to take your personal preferences and goals into account when designing your new veneer. We want the results to exceed your expectations!

Direct Bonding

If you’re struggling with a relatively minor dental imperfection, such as a small chip or slight misalignment, direct bonding is a fast and simple procedure that can be completed in just one appointment. Our doctors will apply tooth-colored composite resin to the affected area and sculpt it into a lifelike addition that covers up the problem. While the result isn’t as long-lasting as other, more permanent cosmetic solutions, it’s a cost-effective option that can create beautiful results.

Teeth Whitening

Over time, gradual discoloration and noticeable dental stains can negatively affect smiles for a whole host of reasons, from poor oral hygiene to simple, unavoidable genetics. Whatever the cause is, our in-practice whitening with ZOOM! can create dazzling results in an exceptional timeframe, helping you shine at your next big event. The procedure combines powerful whitening gel with a special ultraviolet lamp, improving tooth color by several shades over the course of a single appointment.

At-Home Whitening Kits

While in-practice whitening is the right choice for many patients, others would prefer to improve their smile at a more gradual and flexible pace. In this case, our team can provide a customized take-home whitening kit! You simply have to wear the high-grade whitening gel and personalized oral trays together for a certain amount of time each day. This can be done early in the morning before work or late at night when you’re relaxing – the choice is up to you. Within a few weeks of diligent use, patients should start to see noticeably beautiful improvements. Be sure to talk to our team about joining our Whitening Club for only $69 during your first appointment!

Metal-Free Restorations

While pursuing restorative work, you should be thinking about how much more functional and confident your smile will be – not worrying about whether your new look will seem unnatural. At Dentistry by Design, we are happy to combine oral health benefits with stunning quality. Metal-free restorations allow us to rebuild damaged teeth in a virtually seamless fashion. Our practice offers E.max and BruxZir crowns for superior results. E.max crowns are crafted from high-quality ceramic that’s attractive and long-lasting, while the BruxZir model uses zirconia for excellent durability. Both options will provide a worthwhile complement for the rest of your natural teeth, blending right into place so that patients can smile brightly.

In addition to calling us and speaking directly with a knowledgeable member of our team, you can also read on for the answers to FAQs. That way, you can continue your research right here!

What Causes the Discoloration of a Tooth?

There are several reasons your teeth may not look as white as they once did, from the natural aging process to genetics and certain antibiotics. With that said, one of the most common reasons for dental discoloration is dark-colored foods and beverages as well as tobacco products. So, if you want to prevent your teeth from becoming more and more yellow, it’s a good idea to use a straw when drinking coffee, drink plenty of water when eating soy sauce, marinara sauce, and the like, and quit using tobacco products.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

Typically, dental insurance companies only cover treatments that are “medically necessary.” For that reason, cosmetic dental services aren’t usually covered. The good news is that there are other ways to make your care more affordable, including our periodic special offers. As always, if you have any questions pertaining to the cost, we’re here to help you find the answers, so don’t hesitate to ask!

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

There are two main things that impact the longevity of your results: the treatment itself and how well you care for your smile. Let’s start with the first one. While teeth whitening typically lasts for 3-6 months, direct bonding can last for several years, and veneers can last for upwards of 20. As for the second point (how well you care for your smile), bad habits like chewing on ice, smoking, and skipping your biannual checkups can negatively impact the longevity of your results as well as your oral health. That’s why we strongly recommend being proactive about implementing a solid oral hygiene regimen, not eating added sugar in excess, and visiting us twice a year for a checkup and cleaning.

Are There Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures That Are Suitable for Children or Teenagers?

It’s very common for children to get braces, which does improve the appearance of their smile. As for teenagers, there are several smile-enhancing treatments that are suitable, including direct bonding for a chipped tooth and teeth whitening for significant stains. Ultimately, if your child or teen is interested in any of the services we offer, we recommend bringing them in for a consultation so we can learn more about their specific dental needs and smile goals to determine if they are a candidate.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve My Oral Health?

It actually can! Veneers are a great example because they can fix small gaps that would’ve otherwise trapped food particles and plaque, increasing your chances of gum disease and tooth decay in the process. Of course, cosmetic dental treatments can also improve your oral health indirectly as well. After all, if you have a smile you love, you’re more likely to take great care of it!
