Do you have a small stain on your teeth that just won’t respond to bleaching? Tired of seeing your chipped tooth in photos? Want to get rid of that thin gap? Cosmetic bonding can take care of all of this and more, often in just an hour or less. Dr. Lively will place a color-matched composite resin on your tooth, and then they’ll shape it to look like pristine enamel, hiding any damage or flaws along the way. This procedure is not only fast, but completely painless as well, and the results can be trusted to last for up to a decade.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

If you have a tooth in need of repair, instead of unnatural-looking gold or silver, Dr. Lively can provide you with a restoration that is made of 100% dental porcelain. This material perfectly mimics the color and strength of real enamel, and Dr. Lively can shape it to seamlessly restore any tooth. In the end, the only people who will know that you’ve had dental work done are you and Dr. Lively!

Teeth Whitening

Over time, teeth can develop noticeable stains due to coffee, wine, tobacco, natural aging, or unlucky genetics, and store bought whitening treatments just aren’t powerful enough to completely get rid of them. However, Dr. Lively can provide you with a take-home kit that features a bleaching gel much stronger than anything you can buy on your own, meaning it can break up even the most stubborn stains with ease. Simply use the gel with our custom-made mouth trays for about 2 weeks, and before your eyes, you’ll see as your smile become brighter!

Furthermore, our office will walk you through our available services and financing options. This process ensures you get care that’s effective and affordable!

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

When getting cosmetic dentistry, a patient often wants whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or differently shaped teeth. However, aesthetic dental procedures don’t all have the same effects or prices. It’s thus wise to consider their differences before deciding anything. To that end, review the cosmetic services listed below:

  • Dental Bonding – Tooth-colored resin lets dental bonding correct smile flaws. When applied, the material quickly and cheaply hides chips and stains. That said, bonding results aren’t that long-lasting; they need frequent touch-ups every few years.
  • Teeth Whitening – Teeth whitening brightens your enamel by several shades. In particular, it uses special bleaching gel to remove teeth stains from your smile. While whitening is fast, however, it’s moderately priced and only affects tooth color.
  • Metal-Free Restorations – Tooth-colored crowns and fillings both protect teeth and help them look better. Unfortunately, their material – dental porcelain – can make them a tad pricey.
  • Invisalign Clear Braces – Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign subtly and effectively aligns crooked smiles. Still, it’s rather expensive – the alignment process usually costs anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

A beautiful smile could even help with your job prospects, helping you ace interviews and promotions! You’d then get a higher quality of life that practically pays for itself.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Cosmetic dentistry is often thought to be expensive because services aren’t always covered by dental insurance; however, it’s more affordable than you might think. You have more options than ever before to address common aesthetic issues, which means there’s a solution to fit your budget. In some situations, dental insurance can pay some of the costs of medically necessary treatments. Not to mention, our office accepts various payment methods, like CareCredit. You can pay any out-of-pocket costs using a monthly payment plan.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Dr. Lively will keep your comfort as his top priority. Depending on your treatment plan, he may use numbing medication to block pain. While you won’t experience any pain while in the dentist’s chair, certain procedures can cause temporary tenderness. You can manage it with an OTC pain reliever and eating soft food.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?

Everyone’s timeline is different because no two situations are identical. After your consultation, you may need a little prep work, like a dental cleaning or filling. If your teeth and gums are healthy, you are scheduled for your procedure. Some treatments only take 1 appointment, like teeth whitening or dental bonding. However, other procedures may require multiple visits, like porcelain veneers. Dr. Lively will review your timeline during your consultation.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Each procedure has a different life expectancy, and many factors will affect the duration of your results. You can get the most from your investment with good oral hygiene. Besides brushing and flossing, visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. Limit sugars and starches to keep tooth decay at bay. Moderate hard or sticky foods, and break any bad oral habits, like chewing on your fingernails.
