This treatment involves placing extremely thin ceramic shells over the front of the teeth that are designed to look like pristine white enamel. With them, we can enhance the color, shape, and size of the teeth at the same time to make multiple flaws disappear. Each veneer is custom-made for each patient, so you can get just one or an entire set to transform your smile in as little as two appointments.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
With all-porcelain and ceramic crowns, we’re able to provide restorations that are not just extremely strong, but natural-looking as well. These materials perfectly replicate real enamel, so they can be used to repair damaged teeth as well as improve misshapen, undersized, or otherwise aesthetically-imperfect teeth. With these crowns, only you and our team will know where your natural smile ends and your restorations begin.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
In as little as an hour, cosmetic bonding can make a bothersome stain, chip, or gap disappear. The procedure involves applying a small amount of composite resin to a tooth and using it to build up the enamel and hide any flaw. Thanks to our team’s experience and skill, the treatment is fast, painless, and the stunning results can easily last for 10 years or more. It offers a fast and affordable alternative to veneers while still providing a beautiful smile.
Many factors can cause the teeth to stain as the years go by, and pretty much any store-bought whitening treatment out there is too weak to deliver the dramatic results promised on the packaging. But, with Kor Whitening, we can make the teeth 6-8 shades brighter right before your eyes. Its special ingredients are able to reach deep within the enamel to eliminate the stains that most other treatments leave behind. After your initial whitening treatment, we’ll even give you a customized take-home kit so you can easily maintain your new shade for years to come.
Digital Smile Design
Before you commit to a cosmetic treatment, we want you to feel 100% sure about your decision. That’s why we’ll give you a preview of your new look using Digital Smile Design, which will allow us to create a mock-up image of your teeth after you’ve received veneers, whitening, or any other treatment you’re considering. This allows you to design your ideal result right alongside your dentist, and once we get your approval, we can turn the simulated “after” image into your real smile!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Cosmetic dentistry is a big investment. Many people have several questions and concerns before they are ready to commit to a treatment plan. You will feel confident in your decision because your cosmetic dentist in Lady Lake will explain everything and address any apprehensions. While you wait for your consultation, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Does cosmetic dentistry hurt?
You don't have to worry about a painful day in the dentist’s chair because your comfort is our top priority. Your dentist may use a local numbing agent to block pain, but it isn't always necessary, depending on your treatment plan. Although you won't feel anything during your procedure, some treatments can make your mouth a little tender for a few days. Taking an OTC pain reliever will keep you comfortable.
How long does cosmetic dentistry last?
Cosmetic dentistry consists of multiple procedures that have different lifespans, which range from several months to years. Various factors can affect the duration of your results, like your oral hygiene habits and lifestyle. Your cosmetic dentist will explain how long you can expect your results to last and what you can do to get the most from your investment, like brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly. It's also best to limit sugar and break any bad dental habits, like chewing on your fingernails or using your teeth in place of scissors. Don't forget to wear an athletic mouthguard if you play sports to protect your smile from dental emergencies.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
Cosmetic dentistry is associated with a large price tag, but you don't have to be rich or famous to enhance your smile. There are more options than ever to address common aesthetic flaws, like discoloration, gaps, and chips. As a result, there's a solution to fit your budget. Your dentist will create a personalized plan to improve your smile without breaking the bank. Our office also provides several payment solutions to keep a picture-perfect smile affordable.
Can I use my dental insurance to pay for cosmetic dentistry?
Most dental plans don't cover cosmetic dentistry when the procedures are used for elective reasons. However, many cosmetic treatments also have restorative benefits, like fixing a chipped tooth with bonding. If your dentist determines a procedure is medically necessary, your coverage may pay a portion of the cost after meeting your annual deductible. Your dental benefits might cover certain steps in your treatment plan, like any preparatory work or imaging. A member of our team will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any appropriate coverage. They’ll explain how your benefits are being used and if there's any remaining balance. Our office accepts many payment methods for any out-of-pocket expenses, like a monthly payment plan with little or no interest in financing. We will help you find the solutions you need to achieve your best smile without it costing you an arm or a leg.
