Metal-Free Dental Crowns

Typically, a dental crown is used to repair a damaged tooth, but thanks to the natural-looking materials available today, these restorations can also help a patient turn their dream look into a reality. Porcelain and zirconia crowns look and function just like real enamel, and we can design them to make chips, cracks, and gaps disappear. They can also be used to enhance undersized or oddly shaped teeth to create a more uniform and attractive smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

With cosmetic bonding, it just takes one appointment to help your smile look its very best. A small amount of composite resin is applied to a tooth, and it can be used to cover a minor stain, chip, or gap. Your dentist will literally sculpt your tooth to perfection over the course of a single appointment, and after the material has been dried, hardened, and polished, that’s it! The procedure only takes an hour, but the results can be trusted to last for over a decade.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Many people are hesitant about having cosmetic dentistry done due to the cost. After all, most dental insurance plans will not pay for purely cosmetic treatments. Fortunately, at our practice, you will have a caring, knowledgeable team on your side. Not only will we make sure that you’re fully aware of the costs associated with our services before you agree to any procedures, but we’ll also explain how we can help you make the process more affordable.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

To answer this question, you have to consider what you’re trying to accomplish with your cosmetic treatment. Do you want whiter teeth? Are there alignment issues you want to correct? Are you bothered by misshapen teeth? Once you know exactly what you want, we can help you start comparing treatment options – as well as the prices associated with them.

At our practice, we offer the following cosmetic options:

  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: Cosmetic dental bonding gives us a quick, reliable way to cover several imperfections including discoloration, dental damage, and small spaces between the teeth. Dental bonding is a much cheaper option than crowns and typically only requires one appointment. On the other hand, the results may not last as long.
  • Metal-Free Dental Crowns: Whether it’s being placed for purely cosmetic reasons or is necessary for protecting a damaged tooth, a dental crown made entirely out of tooth-colored materials can significantly enhance your smile. Crowns have a higher price tag than dental bonding, but they also tend to be more durable.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

If the potential cost of cosmetic dentistry is giving you pause, it may be helpful to look at it this way: when you correct the flaws on your teeth, you are making an investment in a more dazzling smile that can help you feel more confident about yourself. Thanks to your improved self-esteem, you might find yourself grinning more often, which can make you seem more approachable to others. In many cases, you might find that an improved smile can have a positive impact on your career, relationships, and other aspects of your life.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

As mentioned above, cosmetic dentistry is not usually covered by dental insurance. Generally speaking, insurance only helps pay for treatments that are necessary in terms of oral health; most cosmetic dental procedures don’t qualify since they’re purely elective. That said, if you’re having a metal-free crown placed to protect or strengthen a decayed or weakened tooth, you can usually expect your insurance carrier to cover at least part of the cost.

Additionally, at our practice, you can make paying for your treatments easier by applying for CareCredit or Sunbit financing. The cost of your cosmetic procedure(s) will be divided into smaller monthly installments that won’t strain your budget.
