I Would Like to Enhance My Smile
Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that improve the appearance of your smile. The primary goal of these procedures is often to restore dental health with secondary aesthetic benefits. Cosmetic dental procedures may include porcelain veneers, dental implants, dental crowns, bridges, Invisalign orthodontics, teeth whitening or tooth contouring and reshaping.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, and the dentists at McCarl Dental Group have been enhancing patients’ smiles with veneers for more than 30 years. We can apply our expertise to your smile, creating flawless, long lasting results. Porcelain veneers can improve your smile’s appearance by making teeth look straighter, whiter, erasing irregularities, and generally creating a natural-looking and beautiful smile in just two visits. However, porcelain veneers are much more than just cosmetic. They can improve the health, form and function of the mouth.
All-Ceramic Dental Crowns
A crown is a custom-crafted restoration, informally known as a cap, which is used to protect and strengthen a tooth that has been compromised by decay or injury. With all-ceramic crowns, our team can help you restore both strength and beauty to a damaged tooth in a way that looks completely natural. The tooth-colored material looks and feels like pristine enamel, so your restoration blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Teeth whitening is a simple, safe, effective and economical way to brighten a smile. We recommend the home tray whitening system because it causes the least sensitivity in teeth and gums and provides the longest lasting results. While one hour bleaching has tremendous advertising appeal, more patients experience discomfort and sensitivity. It is always our goal to keep our patients comfortable and happy while we help them achieve their dental health goals and enhance their smile.
Tray system whitening allows patients the choice of wearing trays for 30 minutes during the day for up to a week, or for about three nights while sleeping. This whitening technique is very comfortable, less expensive, and our patients are delighted with the fabulous, long lasting results. Based on our many years of experience with whitening and bleaching products, we have found that both the Zoom Whitening System and Day/Night White are highly effective. As a gift to our patients, we offer teeth whitening at our cost.
Dental fillings should blend in and look like they are part of your natural teeth. Old silver amalgam fillings can be aesthetically distracting and make an entire tooth look darker than the rest of your smile. When you speak or smile, the most attractive fillings are the ones you can’t see.
If you have ever wished for a brighter and more confident smile, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans are dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth, but you don’t have to be one of them. With a complete smile makeover, our team can help you reclaim the health and beauty of your smile. Your smile makeover may include dental implants, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, orthodontic treatment, or a combination of cosmetic & restorative solutions.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Many adult patients dream of achieving a straighter smile, but they simply can’t commit to the thought of wearing metal brackets and wires. This is understandable – you’ve worked hard to create a polished, professional image. Thankfully, Invisalign Clear Braces are a subtle and effective alternative to the traditional braces model. Patients will wear clear aligners that fit comfortably within the mouth and are removable when needed. Their faint appearance will also go unnoticed by most people that you pass in a day, allowing your naturally self-confident smile to shine through.
Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
Your smile deserves reputable, honest, and transformative care. While our team at McCarl Dental Group is focused on your oral health, we also care about your overall appearance, which is why we offer cosmetic treatments to help boost your confidence. But what is the cost of cosmetic dentistry? Is it attainable or is it something only available to those who are rich and famous? As you review the information below, you’ll discover that because of the various options available, you can easily achieve the smile you desire without depleting your savings.
Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?
A scheduled consultation with a member of our team is the best way to determine which type of cosmetic dentistry is right for you and your smile. Although there may be more than one that you are considering, our team can help to narrow down the solution that best aligns with your needs and budget:
- Porcelain Veneers: You can expect a fully transformed smile with these customized restorations. Placed in just two appointments, they can change all aspects of your teeth (size, shape, and color), giving you a new and more aesthetically pleasing smile.
- All-Ceramic Dental Crowns:Damaged and decayed teeth can benefit from all-ceramic dental crowns. So can imperfect teeth with stains or small chips. Customized to fit over problematic teeth, they are beneficial and natural-looking.
- Teeth Whitening: To whiten teeth in just two weeks, you can opt for take-home teeth whitening that is more powerful and produces longer-lasting results than anything you’ll buy over the counter. With customized trays and high-grade bleaching products, you can see a brighter smile in less time.
- Invisalign® Clear Braces: If crooked teeth are not bad enough to cause problems with your oral health, you can discuss the option for Invisalign clear braces. These customized trays help to move teeth into proper alignment so that your smile is straight and more visually appealing when surrounded by others.
- Tooth-Colored Fillings: When a cavity forms, there is the option of having a tooth-colored filling put into place. This lessens the chances of decay continuing to spread while also blending seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
- Smile Makeovers: If you’re unsure which cosmetic solution to choose, let us customize your smile makeover, by incorporating multiple services into one personalized plan.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making
Choosing to invest in cosmetic dentistry is worth it, especially if you are pleased with the results. It is about more than just improving your appearance. These services can help to give you the confidence you need to embrace a new outlook on life.
If your mental, emotional, and physical health has struggled because of your smile, your decision to choose any of our available cosmetic services will help you to take chances and be more willing to meet new people.
When you like the way your smile looks, you’ll notice a difference in how you carry yourself and the opportunities you will take professionally and personally.
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
Our McCarl Dental Group team members want you to feel comfortable moving forward with cosmetic dentistry; however, we know that because dental insurance is unlikely to cover the cost, it can be afinancial investment.
The good news is that we are pleased to provide flexible, interest-free financing, through Care Credit so you can break down the cost of your treatment into smaller payments, making it easier to pursue care without additional worry.
