Invisalign Clear Aligners

With Invisalign, you can straighten crooked teeth without compromising your appearance, restricting your diet, or complicating your oral hygiene routine. Instead of dealing with constant “metal mouth” like with traditional braces, all you need to do with Invisalign is wear a series of clear plastic aligners for about 22 hours a day. These trays are virtually unnoticeable when worn, and you can simply take them out when it’s time to eat, drink, or clean your teeth.

Teeth Whitening

It’s common for once-bright teeth to lose their luster as the years go by, but that doesn’t mean it’s lost forever! Rather than wasting time and money on store-bought teeth whiteners that barely work, we ask you to consider our professional-grade teeth whitening treatments, which deliver dramatic results that last. We offer fast in-office whitening as well as take-home kits, depending on your preferences.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice the way a damaged tooth looks just to get it repaired. Our team wholeheartedly believes that, which is why we provide metal-free dental restorations like fillings and crowns. Made from durable yet lifelike materials, such as porcelain, ceramic, and composite resin, these restorations will heal your smile in such a way that it will look like it was never even damaged in the first place.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you have several minor flaws in your teeth, such as chips, cracks, gaps, or stains, then cosmetic dental bonding is a quick and affordable way to fix them. Our dentists can sculpt a custom-shaded composite resin over the imperfections in the tooth, giving it the ideal size, shape, and color. Because the resin is biocompatible, it chemically bonds with your enamel so that it resembles your natural tooth structure almost perfectly.

Smile Makeovers

We’ll take your specific needs, budget, and preferred timeline into account when designing a custom treatment plan to fully transform your grin. We’ll do our utmost to deliver your ideal results in as few procedures as possible for maximum convenience and efficiency.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

In most cases, dental insurance does not cover the cost of cosmetic dental treatments because they are not deemed medically necessary by insurers (at least in most cases). If this has you worried about the cost of your future smile makeover, you can rest knowing that our team members will gladly help you navigate your needs and figure out the best treatment plan based on your financial situation. Keep in mind that different services carry unique price points and achieving a smile that makes you feel confident is truly priceless.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

People typically try to accomplish multiple goals at a time when undergoing cosmetic dental treatment. For example, they often want to whiten, straighten, or change the shape or size of their teeth. In some cases, they may want to make all of these changes, leading to higher overall costs. However, you may not need as many services as you think to get the job done. Consider our cosmetic dental services below:

  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding – Ideal for small changes to teeth, including small cracks or chips. This option is also the most affordable but you will require touch-ups every few years in most cases.
  • Invisalign – Perfect for addressing mild to moderate gaps in teeth as well as misalignment and uneven bites. However, it’s a big investment for most and can take several months to over a year to complete.
  • Teeth Whitening – Fast, effective, and lasting professional whitening solutions will beat anything found in a grocery store or pharmacy. Whitening will not influence the shape or position of your teeth and does not affect restorations if you have them.
  • Smile Makeover – When you need multiple services to achieve your dream smile, a comprehensive makeover plan ensures all your needs are met.

Cosmetic Dentistry: A Worthwhile Investment

Cosmetic dental treatments can feel like a large financial commitment, but it’s also best to think of them as investments that pay dividends in the long-term. For example, if you have always felt self-conscious about your smile, you can expect your mood and confidence to get a major boost once you can feel comfortable showing your smile to friends, family, coworkers, and those you’re meeting for the first time. This can make it easier to build relationships with others, both personal and professional.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Dental services that are purely esthetic will not receive coverage from any dental insurance company. That means you’ll need to explore alternative financing options if you don’t plan to pay for care out-of-pocket. One many consider is CareCredit, a third-party financing solution that lets you pay for services in monthly installments rather than in one lump sum. In many cases, these payments come with little to no interest attached to make affording your smile makeover even easier.

No matter how you intend to pay, our team will be by your side every step of the way and answer any questions you might have. To learn more, schedule a consultation with our dental office!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Your smile is one of your most important features, and you shouldn’t have any doubts or reservations about seeking cosmetic dentistry in Brookfield to upgrade your pearly whites to look their absolute best! That said, we’ve gathered a few of the most frequently asked questions that we receive about cosmetic dentistry so that you can feel confident about committing to treatment. Of course, if you have any other questions or concerns about a particular treatment or your eligibility, you’re more than welcome to give us a call today for additional assistance or clarification.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

There are normally two main factors that determine how long cosmetic dental work will last: the procedure that was performed, and the patient’s commitment to oral hygiene. For example, cosmetic dental bonding provides a quick fix for mildly damaged teeth, but it often needs to be touched up or replaced after a few years, while veneers are a more comprehensive solution and can last for up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Regardless of the procedure performed, keeping up with your brushing and flossing habits will keep your results intact.

Why Is Cosmetic Dentistry So Popular?

Historically, dentistry has generally been focused on preventing and curing oral health issues; however, in the last few decades, a lot has happened that allows dentists to noticeably improve the appearance of a patient’s smile in addition to treating it. Thanks to modern techniques and advancements in dental technology, patients have access to a wide array of customizable treatments that lets them affordably enhance the appearance of their teeth and gums.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Even if your heart is set on improving the look of your smile, you might still have concerns about the cosmetic dentistry process being painful—but you have nothing to worry about! The majority of cosmetic treatments are actually quite comfortable and relatively pain-free, and most of the time an anesthetic isn’t even necessary. And if you’re afflicted by dental-related anxiety, sedation options are available to help you feel even more at ease.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Dental Insurance?

Since cosmetic dentistry is often considered elective, most procedures are not covered by insurance. However, there are sometimes exceptions to this; for example, cosmetic dental work that also offers long-term health benefits might be partially covered by your insurance, but you’ll need to check with your provider beforehand. Our team can assist you with understanding the specifics of your plan so that you can maximize your benefits. We’re also thrilled to offer CareCredit financing to help you break up the cost of treatment into manageable monthly installments!
