Why Choose All Dental Center for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made pieces of porcelain that we attach to the fronts of teeth in order to hide their aesthetic flaws. We design veneers with the goal of flattering your natural facial features. Porcelain is nonporous, making it extremely stain-resistant, and it is strong enough to last for many years. We can use veneers to transform just one or two teeth whose appearance bothers you, or we can place an entire set of veneers to totally make over your smile.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Metal fillings, bridges, and crowns provide effective tooth protection — but they have some serious drawbacks, one of which is that they can downgrade your smile’s natural beauty. That is why we offer a variety of metal-free restorations. Porcelain crowns and bridges, as well as composite resin tooth-colored fillings, can be shade-matched to blend in seamlessly with the nearby tooth enamel. As a result, you can reap all the benefits of restorative dentistry without any dark metal to mar your look.

Dental Bonding

Direct bonding is a process wherein we apply a tooth-colored composite resin (the same material we use for tooth-colored fillings) to the front of a tooth. We shape the resin in a way that allows it to disguise the tooth’s imperfections, such as chips, cracks, or discoloration. A special curing light hardens the resin. We often recommend bonding for patients who have just one or two teeth with noticeable flaws. The process is painless and fast, and the results may last for 5 years or longer.

Teeth Whitening

Genetics, the consumption of highly pigmented foods and beverages, and simply the passage of time may cause your teeth to become discolored and dull-looking. We can help you get rid of those stains with our professional whitening treatments. In a single appointment, we may be able to make you teeth several shades brighter. Or, if you would prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, we can provide you with a kit to use at your convenience.

Gum Recontouring/ Crown Lengthening

Your gums should be a subtle pink frame for your teeth. However, if you have excess or uneven gum tissue, your gums may draw attention away from your beautiful teeth — you have what is often referred to as a “gummy smile.” We can trim your gums in a way that exposes more of your tooth structure and produces a more proportionate look (gum recontouring). We might also shorten and reshape your gums and underlying bone with the objective of making space on your teeth for veneers or crowns (crown lengthening).

Digital Imaging/ Virtual Smile Design

Would you like to see the results of a cosmetic treatment before you commit to it? Thanks to our digital imaging/virtual smile design technology, that is totally possible. We begin the smile design process by taking some photos of your smile. Then, we used advanced software to give you a realistic idea of what you can expect your teeth to look like after a particular procedure. This technology allows you to collaborate with us and help us plan treatments in a way that produces desirable results.

Botox® Cosmetic

Dentists possess an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy. Thus, with just a little extra training, they are uniquely qualified to provide Botox Cosmetic. In just a few minutes and with just a few strategically placed injections, we may be able to help you eliminate or reduce crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, and other common signs of aging. With repeated, regular treatments (every 3 – 4 months), you can fight the ravages of time and maintain a youthful glow for years to come.

Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover is not a dental treatment. Rather, it is a custom treatment plan that has the objective of correcting everything you dislike about your smile. After we get to know you, your goals, and the state of your oral health, we will tell you which procedures will best be able to help you achieve your dream look. If you have multiple treatment options, we will take time to explain the pros and cons of each. Some examples of treatments that might be part of your smile makeover include dental implants, gum recontouring, teeth whitening, veneers, and more.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Because dental insurance does not usually cover cosmetic dentistry, many people are concerned about being able to pay for their treatment. During your FREE smile makeover consultation, we will provide upfront pricing information. We may also be able to give you some tips on how to afford your desired service. For example, you might be eligible for financing.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

When people visit us for cosmetic services, they usually want to accomplish one or more of the following: whiten their teeth, change the size or shape of their teeth, or straighten their teeth. We offer services that can help with all of those goals, and they come at varying price points:

  • Dental bonding. Also known as direct bonding or cosmetic bonding, this service uses a composite resin to hide aesthetic imperfections. It is quite affordable and only takes one appointment to complete. However, the results may last for just a few years.
  • Teeth whitening. Professional whitening services may cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to one thousand dollars or more. They are excellent for anyone who is struggling with stubborn dental discoloration.
  • Veneers are custom-crafted pieces of porcelain that can hide a range of flaws. They can cost thousands of dollars, but their durability, natural appearance, and stain-resistance make them a great value.
  • Invisalign clear aligners can cost thousands of dollars. They are perfect for patients whose dental misalignment is threatening their oral health.
  • Gum contouring. This surgical service reshapes the gums to improve the proportions of a patient’s smile. Its cost can vary depending on the extent of the procedure.
  • Smile makeover. A smile makeover is a customized treatment plan that may involve multiple cosmetic services. It is usually the most expensive option, but it is the best choice for patients who want to efficiently and powerfully transform their look.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Worth It?

Is cosmetic dentistry worth it? That question must be answered by each person on an individual basis. However, many patients would say yes because:

  • Cosmetic dentistry can enhance your confidence and improve your social life.
  • A beautiful smile is often associated with career success.
  • Many people are more motivated to take great care of their oral health after a cosmetic service.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Dental insurance almost never covers services that are deemed to be purely cosmetic, such as teeth whitening and veneers. Other treatments, though, might be covered if they have significant oral health benefits. For example, if your insurance plan includes orthodontic coverage, it might reduce your out-of-pocket cost for Invisalign.

If your insurance will not help pay for your treatment, there are other provisions that might be able to help you achieve your dream smile:

  • A FREE consultation. During a smile makeover consultation, we can answer your questions and design a treatment plan that works with your budget.
  • The Essential Dental plan. This discount plan can provide reduced fees on many services, including some that are not covered by insurance.
  • Many patients are eligible for low-interest financing through a third-party lender, such as CareCredit. Our team can assist you with the application process.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Our Watertown dental team takes great pleasure in helping patients love their smiles. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, we would be happy to consult with you. Before you book an appointment, though, you might be curious about the road in front of you. To prepare you for the good things to come, we have put together a list of answers to some FAQs about cosmetic dentistry. If your questions are not addressed here, give us a call — we will be pleased to speak with you.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Our team offers a number of cosmetic treatments, all of which come at different price points. Teeth whitening and dental bonding might cost just a few hundred dollars, whereas a full set of veneers may cost thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. Let our team know your budget so we can recommend a treatment plan that works for you.

Also, keep in mind that although some treatments might seem expensive, they are actually an excellent value! For example, veneers may last for 15 – 20 years if they receive proper care. Their cost per day over that time period is quite low!

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

Dental insurance almost never covers treatments that are deemed to be purely elective. Many cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening and veneers, fall into this category.

However, if a treatment will both enhance your smile and significantly benefit your oral health, there is a chance that your insurance will pay for at least a portion of its cost. This might sometimes be the case with metal-free crowns and gum recontouring.

If you are looking for ways to save on cosmetic treatment, talk to our team. We may be able to help you apply for low-interest financing or take advantage of our in-house membership plan.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Generally speaking, cosmetic dentistry is quite safe. As long as your treatment is performed by a qualified professional, there is very little risk that something will go seriously wrong. If you have questions about the potential downsides of any given treatment, talk to our team. You can expect us to be open and honest.

Also, keep in mind that while professional treatments are very safe, DIY options come with a higher level of risk. For example, some people use extremely abrasive products to attempt to whiten their teeth, which could cause permanent dental damage.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

It is important to remember that the decision to move forward with cosmetic dentistry is a highly personal one. Usually, the people who choose to move forward with it have some noticeable imperfections in their teeth that they would like to change. Issues such as stained teeth, chips and cracks, crookedness, and more can all be corrected with cosmetic treatment.

If you would like some help deciding whether or not cosmetic dentistry is right for you, book a consultation with our team. We will be happy to guide you.
