Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a popular, effective cosmetic dentistry solution used to conceal or correct a number of minor cosmetic flaws with one quick, painless treatment. Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain that fit over the front facing surfaces of teeth to correct smile flaws. The process is simple. Patients visit our office and we remove a minimal amount of surface enamel, capture bite impressions, and place a temporary veneer. When our trusted dental lab has completed the custom veneer, patients return to exchange their temporary for the permanent porcelain veneer transforming their smiles.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

We are dedicated to offering cosmetically superior treatment options whether patients’ only goals are to makeover their smiles or if they need more extensive smile repair. That’s why we’re happy to offer metal-free restorations that blend seamlessly into the natural smile line while repairing the form and function of damaged or decayed teeth. We offer both traditional tooth-colored restorations, and same day treatment with CEREC® all-ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays, and other restorations.

In-Practice & At-Home KöR Whitening

While store bought whitening mouthwashes, toothpastes, strips, and gels offer dramatic results, these products are typically unable to deliver the promised results. Professional teeth whitening in our office or using our take-home whitening kits is able to effectively and predictably brighten smiles up to ten shades. Those patients interested in immediate results should choose in-practice whitening which takes about an hour and offers dramatic, long lasting results. Patients with sensitive teeth or who wish to whiten their smiles more gradually may want to use a professional at-home whitening kit instead.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Initially, it might seem like the cost of cosmetic dentistry is something you can simply look up on Google. However, there are so many factors that go into creating the cost – from how many teeth are being treated to the dental imperfections you’d like to fix. Of course, we will review all of this information with you at your initial consultation (as well as the price), but if you want to learn more in the meantime, you can read on!

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

That depends largely on one important question: what are your smile goals? If you want to remove stubborn surface stains, making your teeth brighter in the process, then our in-practice and take-home whitening treatments may be the ideal solution. If you want to improve more than just the color of your teeth, like the size and shape, then veneers can help! During your consultation, we will review all of the available treatment options based on what aspects of your smile you’d like to enhance.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

If you hesitate to smile because you’re unhappy with the size, shape, or shade of your teeth, then that alone is a reason why cosmetic dentistry is worth the investment. However, there are also perks outside of improving your confidence. For example, many treatments that fall under the aesthetic category also benefit your oral health. Additionally, having a beautiful smile that you’re happy to share can improve your success in your dating life as well as your career!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Many patients assume that their dental insurance won’t cover the cost of cosmetic dentistry. While that typically is the case, there are a few exceptions, like metal-free restorations. So, don’t hesitate to review the fine print on your dental plan and see if you have any available benefits! If you don’t, that’s okay – our team may be able to find a low-to-no interest payment plan that helps you breakdown the cost of your smile transformation into more manageable chunks.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Are you unhappy with the current appearance of your teeth? Various cosmetic options are available to help you feel more confident when you show off your smile. However, it pays to be well-informed. We’ve put together some of the most common questions we are asked about cosmetic dentistry in Jonesboro. If you don’t see the information you’re looking for below, don’t hesitate to call us. One of our friendly team members would be happy to address any of your questions or concerns.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

The pricy reputation of cosmetic dentistry is likely due to the fact that cosmetic treatments are rarely covered by dental insurance, so you typically have to pay out of pocket. Improving your smile may seem costly at first, but you need to consider the investment that you’re making in your self-esteem, confidence, and quality of life!

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

As long as you are under the care of a trained professional, most cosmetic dental treatments are perfectly safe for most patients. However, not every treatment is right for every patient. That is why your dentist examines your mouth beforehand and gives you an honest assessment of which procedures are right for you. Some cosmetic services pose a risk if you have an untreated oral health issue. For instance, placing a veneer over a decayed tooth may make the decay more difficult to treat later on. However, your dentist will address issues like these before beginning your cosmetic treatment.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

The lifespan of your new and improved smile will vary based on which specific treatment you’ve completed. Some last longer than others. For example, if you get your teeth professionally whitened, this will not last as long as more extensive treatments. The results of teeth whitening will last several months to several years after your treatment depending on how well you take care of them. Restorations like dental crowns and veneers can last well over a decade when cared for properly.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Many patients worry that their upcoming treatment will be painful. We do everything we can to ensure that you remain comfortable in the dental chair. For non-invasive treatments, like teeth whitening, you shouldn’t even require a local anesthetic. If you are opting for veneers or another restoration, we will numb the area beforehand, so you don’t feel a thing. There may be some residual soreness or sensitivity for the next few days, but this should be mild and temporary.
