When you’re worried about your smile’s appearance, the last thing you want is a dark, metallic restoration to attract attention. That’s why we provide restorations that are custom-made to look just like a natural tooth without using any metal. The only ones who ever need know that you had dental work done are you and Dr. Lee, which means that you can smile without worrying about what others are thinking about your teeth.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Although porcelain veneers have many benefits, they also have some notable disadvantages. For example, the process involves taking off a tiny portion of enamel to make room for the veneers. Cosmetic bonding is a more conservative option for correcting gapped, discolored, or chipped teeth that doesn’t involve permanent changes to your natural tooth structure. Plus, it can be completed in just one appointment and typically costs less than porcelain veneer treatment.

Teeth Whitening

After years of drinking coffee and eating chocolate, your teeth can look more dull or yellow, making your smile appear older. You could try store-bought whitening treatments, but these can’t give you the kind of results that will make a big impact. We can offer a way to remove these deep-set stains. With our powerful professional whitening solution, we can turn back the clock and brighten your smile by up to eight shades.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

One question that you should definitely have answered at the start of the cosmetic dentistry process is, “How much will it cost?” After all, as wonderful as a dazzling smile is, you don’t want to break the bank trying to obtain it. Rest assured that the amount you can expect to pay for a cosmetic dental treatment is one of the topics that we will discuss at your initial consultation, and we’ll take the time to give you a reliable estimate of the overall price.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

It likely goes without saying that the cost of cosmetic dentistry can vary significantly based on which treatment is being performed. We can discuss the various services we offer in more detail when you visit us in person, but in the meantime, here is a quick overview:

  • Veneers: Veneers tend to cost more than other forms of cosmetic dentistry. However, this is balanced out by the fact that veneers can potentially last a long time with the right care, and they offer an efficient way to make multiple improvements to your smile at once.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: Compared to veneers, cosmetic dental bonding costs less and can be completed in less time, which often makes it a great choice for smaller aesthetic corrections; that said, cosmetic dental bonding is also typically less durable.
  • Teeth Whitening: Compared to other forms of cosmetic dentistry, the cost of teeth whitening is normally in the mid-range. Remember that teeth whitening is specifically for issues regarding the color of your teeth; other treatments will be required if you want to address tooth positioning, shape, or size.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Working cosmetic dentistry into your budget now could end up paying off in multiple ways later down the line. Obviously, there’s the improved self-esteem that comes with no longer being embarrassed about the appearance of your smile. However, a beautiful grin can also help you make a better first impression when meeting others while also making you seem more approachable in general. This can end up having a positive impact on your career and personal life.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Dental insurance normally won’t pay for cosmetic dental procedures, but you still have the option of applying for CareCredit financing, which allows you to break up the cost of your treatment into monthly installments that are easier for your bank account to handle.

Additionally, patients who are bothered by discolored teeth can take advantage of our Zoom! teeth whitening special offer. You can significantly brighten your dull or stained smile with a professional treatment that only costs $199.

If you have concerns about your ability to pay for cosmetic dentistry, don’t be afraid to ask our team about the available options for payment.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Dr. Sung-Hee Lee is a cosmetic dentist in North Dallas who is excited to help you see an improved and more confident smile. Combining her skillset and unique services, she can take nearly any cosmetic problem and turn it into something beautiful. But before you move forward with any type of procedure, she wants you to be sure about the process. Since you likely have many questions, she is happy to provide the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry for you to review.

Does my dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

Depending on your individual insurance plan, it is highly unlikely that you will be covered for cosmetic dentistry. However, there are exceptions to the rule. Should you require treatment that overlaps both restorative and cosmetic services, it may be possible to have some of it covered (i.e. custom dental crown). This is all dependent on your insurer, so before you agree to treatment, make sure to contact your dental insurance company to discuss coverage and how much you can expect to pay out of pocket.

Will cosmetic dentistry improve my oral health?

Without a doubt, yes, cosmetic dentistry can improve your oral health. How? When chips, cracks, stains, or gaps exist within your smile, this makes it more possible for you to end up with tooth decay, gum disease, or a host of other issues. By fixing these problems, you are decreasing your risk and improving the health and look of your smile. Whether through porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or metal-free dental restorations, you will be doing yourself a favor by pursuing cosmetic treatment.

How long does each treatment take?

Based on the examination provided by your dentist in North Dallas as well as the type of treatment you agree to, the timeline for achieving results will vary. Some of the timeframes you can generally expect include:

Each of these treatments requires a different process, some of which involve having dental lab technicians create your custom restorations. If this is necessary, you can expect the treatment time to take a bit longer because of the necessary time it takes to create veneers, dental crowns, and whitening trays.

Are teenagers eligible for cosmetic treatment?

It is up to Dr. Lee to determine whether your teenager is right for certain procedures. Depending on the severity of their case, it may be possible for them to receive teeth whitening, metal-free dental restorations, or cosmetic dental bonding to fix and cover smile imperfections. No matter the decision, Dr. Lee will always keep your child’s safety in mind when suggesting viable treatment options.
