Virtual Smile Design
Sometimes, it’s hard to picture what your smile will look like after a cosmetic treatment. To help you make a decision that you’re comfortable with, we can edit a picture of your teeth to show what they’ll look like after being covered with veneers, enhanced with whitening, or improved with other cosmetic procedures. You can take these images home with you to review them if you need a little extra time to think about your decision.
Veneers can make all kinds of cosmetic flaws disappear. From stubborn stains to visible chips and cracks to gaps in your grin to slightly rotated teeth, all of these issues can be dealt with at once with the help of personalized veneers. A thin sheath of tooth-colored material is attached to the front of the teeth, thus hiding any number of imperfections. They can be used to improve a single tooth or achieve a complete smile makeover.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
At Ocean Oaks Dental, you can get a crown made out of a tooth-colored material instead of traditional metal. This is not choosing aesthetics over functionality; the crowns we create not only match your natural smile, but they also last for a very long time with proper maintenance. You can therefore protect your teeth from further damage or infection without having to worry about how a metal-colored crown might detract from your overall appearance.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Some smiles only need a small touch-up to bring out their full beauty, which is where cosmetic bonding comes in. This simple procedure can be done in just one visit without having to worry about prior preparations; we simply need to apply a small amount of composite resin to the spots on the teeth where flaws are present, then carefully mold and blend the material so that it appears to be part of the tooth itself.
Discoloration of the teeth usually happens gradually and can be linked to many factors such as coffee, wine, tobacco, certain medications, and sometimes genetics. Whitening is the process of removing particles that are causing dark stains in your teeth to make them appear brighter. While you can go to the store to find several whitening products, a professional whitening treatment will be much more effective in getting rid of stains above and below the surface of the enamel.
We can put together a smile makeover plan that combines your desired dental treatments based on what changes you want to make. This simulation helps to bring a picture of some great-looking smiles so that you can point to the sort of things that you would like to see in your own smile; this can give us an idea of how to proceed with your ideal treatment.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Are you still unsure about transforming your smile? It’s perfectly natural to have questions before starting dental work, especially if you aren’t familiar with the process. We’ve taken this opportunity to answer some common questions here for your convenience. However, you may have others that we don’t address here. Feel free to ask us during your consultation appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Vero Beach. We’ll be happy to listen to your goals and needs and then provide guidance so you feel absolutely confident about your treatment plan.
How Long Does Cosmetic Work Take?
The timeline for your treatment plan depends on what procedure(s) you’re doing. For some patients, the process can be completed in as few as one or two appointments. However, more complex work may require more time. Regardless, we will work as efficiently as possible so you can start enjoying your beautiful, brilliant smile quickly, and we can provide an accurate estimated timeline at your consultation. As a result, you can have a clearer idea of when treatment will be finished.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you are keeping up with your at-home oral hygiene and regularly visit our office for checkups and cleanings, you likely qualify for cosmetic dental work. All that’s required is generally healthy teeth and gums! If you have gum disease, a cavity, or some other issue, we’ll need to deal with that first. Then, we can worry about the aesthetics of your smile. In addition to our discussion about what you’re hoping to achieve, we’ll make sure nothing is standing in the way between you and your dream smile.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?
Other than some rare exceptions, dental insurance plans typically do not include cosmetic benefits. This means you will likely need to pay for treatment completely out-of-pocket. Sometimes, restorative and cosmetic work overlap, in which case part of the cost could be covered by insurance. We can look at your particular plan and find out exactly what is and isn’t your responsibility to pay and let you know exactly what to expect. After all, the only surprise should be how much you love the results!
How Much Does Cosmetic Work Cost?
Because each case involves a unique smile and a customized treatment plan, the cost varies from patient to patient. In fact, we won’t be able to provide a clear cost estimate until we’ve had the chance to check out your smile as it is now and then discuss your options in person. However, regardless of what procedure(s) you get, our team is here to make treatment more affordable through financing through CareCredit, the industry’s leading financier. As a result, you can break up the total into easier monthly payments.
