Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, and the dentists at McCarl Dental Group, PC have been enhancing patients’ smiles with veneers for decades. We can apply our expertise to your smile, creating flawless, long-lasting results. Veneers can improve your smile’s appearance by making teeth look straighter and whiter, erasing irregularities, and creating a natural-looking, beautiful smile in just two visits. However, 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 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

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 smiles.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

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.

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. You will wear clear aligners that fit comfortably within your mouth and are removable when needed. Their faint appearance will also go unnoticed by most people, allowing your naturally self-confident smile to shine through.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

If you find that the information you have received on this page leads you to call and schedule an appointment with one of our skilled cosmetic dentists, great! We can’t wait to take your smile to the next level. We also understand, though, if you have some additional questions about treatment and what can be expected once you begin living life with a fully transformed set of teeth. This is why we’ve devoted time to compiling answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry. Review the details below and feel free to give us a call when you’re ready.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Typically, cosmetic dentistry is considered an elective form of treatment, which is why many dental insurance companies will not cover the cost. Because it is not deemed “medically necessary,” the services tend to focus more on aesthetics than improving oral health. However, when meeting with a member of our team, you may learn that cosmetic dental treatment can help to not only improve your smile but also your mental and emotional state – two things that can impact your overall health and well-being.

You and your dentist can discuss the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, which services will prove most worthwhile, and how you can expect it to improve your appearance.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Change Your Life?

When it comes to enjoying life, people have many different answers concerning what makes them happy. While there is no doubt that your physical appearance can cause you to feel good or bad about yourself, your mental and emotional state can take a toll as well. Do you want to have more confidence? Are you looking to re-engage with family and friends instead of staying at home feeling embarrassed by your smile? Do you want to embrace new opportunities such as a potential job or new love?

Cosmetic dentistry can be the first step toward a greater sense of confidence in yourself. When you like the way you look, it can help you to feel better and be eager to try new things and meet new people.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

In short, it depends. As aesthetic-based services, dental insurance will not cover the cost; however, this doesn’t mean that only the rich and famous can access these types of treatment. Veneers, teeth whitening, and all other cosmetic solutions can be available to whoever is looking to improve their appearance. This is why our team at McCarl Dental Group, PC offers CareCredit flexible financing.

Breaking up the cost of treatment into manageable monthly installments makes it easy to avoid the upfront cost that might otherwise come out of your pocket. Instead, it works similarly to a credit card that you pay off over time.

What is the Difference Between a Dentist and a Cosmetic Dentist?

Unlike endodontists, periodontists, prosthodontics, orthodontists, and pedodontics, all of which are specializations recognized by the American Dental Association, cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty that requires additional education. Instead, general dentists who want to provide cosmetic dental treatments must complete additional training and hands-on experience as it pertains to veneer placement, cosmetic dental bonding, teeth whitening, and more.

This ensures that patients receive high-quality care from a trusted individual who has the experience and knowledge to deliver these services.
