Direct Bonding and Teeth Whitening

Porcelain Veneers

Our veneers are made from a durable and naturally translucent porcelain, ensuring that any and all imperfections in your teeth are completely invisible in your smile. All of our veneers are personalized with color, shape and size in mind, so you can expect your smile to look incredibly lifelike next to your existing teeth. To make the veneers sit flush, we need to remove a very small amount of enamel. This way, the veneers will not look oversized or stick out after they are placed. Thanks to their durability, you can expect them to last at least 10 years with proper oral maintenance.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Your dental restorations should be strong and long-lasting, but that doesn’t mean they should stick out like a sore thumb. Dental restorations are the one type of artistry you don’t want to be noticeable in any way. When it’s done right, friends and family shouldn’t even know that it’s there! With composite resin and Emax materials, creating a custom-shade that matches your existing teeth just right is not only possible, but simple.

Dental Bonding

Even just small cracks or stains and teeth can stick out when there are no other issues present. Alternatively, you may want a more affordable solution for your cosmetic treatment. Direct bonding can satisfy both of these needs simultaneously! With just a small amount of custom-shaded composite resin, we can hide cracks, stains, and even small gaps in between teeth, all in a single appointment. This treatment is also considerably more affordable and less time consuming than other options.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

When you want your smile to be multiple shades whiter and actually stay that way for longer, over-the-counter solutions simply won’t cut it. With Venus take-home teeth whitening kits, you can easily whiten teeth in the comfort of your own home or on the go! Each tray is customized to fit your smile exactly, ensuring even coverage and optimal function from our powerful bleaching gels. By wearing each gel-filled tray for a set period of time every day over the next two weeks, you can expect a smile several shades brighter and free of stains.

Clear Braces

Straightening your teeth isn’t only doing your smile’s appearance a favor. With clear aligners, you can remove gaps from your teeth and improve your bite. This makes your future brushing and flossing easier to perform and helps you avoid common issues caused by malocclusions (including teeth grinding and stress on the jaw joints.) Each clear aligner is customized to slowly shift your teeth over time, all without using fixed metal braces or forcing you to change your diet and oral care habits.

Gum Recontouring/ Crown Lengthening

While having a “gummy smile” doesn’t put your oral health at risk, many patients note that they wish they could do something about it. However, it can get in the way if restorations need to be placed or if you would like more of your smile to be visible. In this case, we can perform gum recontouring (also known as crown lengthening) and gently remove excess tissue. Most cases only take one appointment to complete, meaning you can leave the dental office with a beautiful smile the same day!

Digital Imaging

If you’re feeling apprehensive about your next cosmetic treatment, either because you aren’t sure what your smile will look like or you’ve never had cosmetic treatment completed before, we’ve got you covered. Our digital imaging software makes it easy to see exactly what a cosmetic treatment will look like after it’s been performed on your smile. Simply provide us with an up-to-date photo and we’ll upload it to our program. From there, we can discuss which cosmetic treatment would best help you achieve your ideal vision.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQ’s

If you’re unhappy with your teeth, your cosmetic dentist in Litchfield can help you achieve the picture-perfect smile you deserve. Although you’re ready to give your confidence a boost, we understand you are a bit apprehensive before you’re ready to commit to a treatment. We’ll take the time to explain everything during your initial consultation. In the meantime, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about cosmetic dentistry to ease your concerns.

Which cosmetic procedures are right for me?

Everyone’s plan is unique. We’ll perform a thorough consultation and learn more about your goals to determine which procedure is right for you. Depending on your specific needs, you might be a candidate for 1 or more treatments, such as:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Thin shells cover the entire front surface of a tooth to instantly hide a variety of imperfections, like discoloration and chips.

  • Metal-Free Restorations: Repair a damaged tooth without a dark filling or crown. Your restoration is customized to match the color of your natural teeth to blend in when you smile.

  • Dental Bonding: Minor aesthetic concerns can be fixed using a composite resin material.

  • At-Home Teeth Whitening: Get your teeth as much as 8 shades whiter using a take-home whitening kit. You can enjoy professional results from the comfort of your own home.

  • Clear Braces: Fix bite and alignment concerns without brackets and wires using clear aligners. You’ll enjoy a discreet solution to achieve a straight, healthy smile.

  • Gum Recontouring: Resolve a gummy smile and reveal attractive teeth with gum recontouring.

Can my teen benefit from cosmetic dentistry?

There are many treatment plans that are suitable for teens, like metal-free restorations, dental bonding, or clear braces. Your dentist in Litchfield will perform a thorough consultation to determine which procedures can help your teen achieve a confident smile.

How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

There isn’t a set fee for cosmetic dentistry because the cost is determined by your specific treatment, such as the type of procedure required. We’ll provide you with a custom estimate during your initial consultation and discuss the fees associated with your plan. A member of our team will discuss your payment options to help you find the solutions you need to achieve your dream smile without draining your wallet, like third-party financing with CareCredit.

Can I use my dental insurance to pay for cosmetic dentistry?

Generally, dental insurance companies won’t cover the cost of cosmetic dentistry because they are elective procedures; however, there are some exceptions. Cosmetic and restorative dentistry often overlap. As a result, if a treatment is necessary for your oral health, you might be able to use your insurance plan to help offset the cost. If applicable, a member of our team will work on your behalf with your insurance company to file the necessary claim forms, so you have one less thing to worry about. We’ll explain how your coverage is being used and if you owe a remaining balance.
