Why Choose The Dental People for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Porcelain Veeners And Lumineers Available
Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers
When you have multiple imperfections to cover, including chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps, or even slightly rotated teeth, there’s only one treatment that can effectively cover all of them up simultaneously. Porcelain veneers use durable, lifelike dental ceramics to cover teeth. Every aspect of your veneer is custom-made, including the shape, color, and size, in order to perfectly blend in with your existing teeth. For those who would prefer to remove little to no tooth enamel, Lumineers are even thinner and can even be removed in case you change your mind about treatment.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
Without natural-looking materials, your smile can’t look as natural as it should. That’s why the dentists at The Dental People only use tooth-colored materials to restore and improve the appearance of teeth. Whether it’s for crowns, veneers, or dental fillings, the materials our dental office uses are designed to look lifelike while still maintaining long-term durability and functionality.
Question About Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
A minor chip or crack in your tooth that doesn’t require significant intervention can be frustrating to deal with, especially if you have an important social event coming up. With cosmetic bonding, hiding these imperfections is simple, affordable, and non-invasive. Through the use of composite resin, our dental office can mold and shape the material around your damaged tooth and hide any imperfections. Upon application, we’ll use a curing light to harden the material instantly, so you only need one appointment to get your smile ready!
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments we offer at The Dental People. That’s why we offer both in-office and take-home treatments based on your preference. For in-office whitening, we use Opalescence Boost and Zoom Whitening to get your smile brighter in just one hour. Those who’d prefer to whiten on their own time as well as practice routine touch-ups can use NiteWhite’s take-home kits, allowing you to whiten teeth while you sleep!
Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?
At The Dental People, we realize that finances may play a role in which procedure(s) you choose. We cannot provide general estimates for treatment because each case is unique; however, we can generally compare the various treatments in terms of cost. Teeth whitening tends to be the lowest costing treatment, while veneers and Lumineers tend to be on the higher side, depending on how many teeth are being treated. When you come in for your consultation, we can give you specific numbers to consider while you decide how you wish to proceed.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making
Without any assistance from dental insurance, you may wonder whether you should bother with cosmetic dentistry. However, improving the look of your teeth is about more than just your appearance. Having a beautiful smile can give you invaluable confidence in yourself in both professional and social situations. According to numerous studies, those who have an appealing smile are often perceived as being more trustworthy and successful than those who don’t. Also, when you show your genuine smile more frequently, it causes your brain to create “happy hormones,” which can help you feel better and give you a boost in your mood.
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
At The Dental People, we believe the cost shouldn’t hold you back from achieving your dream smile. Depending on your treatment, you may wish to consider joining our savings plan, our alternative to dental insurance that includes a discount on all services. If you do not wish to pay the full amount upfront, we are happy to accept payment through CareCredit, a financing company that separates the total into easier monthly payments, which can make any treatment squeeze into most budgets.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
With so many cosmetic procedures on our menu, you may not know where to start. The cosmetic dentistry process begins when you schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Katy! If you have questions about treatment, feel free to ask when you meet with Dr. Siu or Dr. Girgius during your appointment. However, we’ve answered some of the most common inquiries below, so please take a look at them. Further clarification can be given in your visit, if necessary.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Fortunately, most of the patients who want to pursue cosmetic dentistry can! All it requires is a healthy mouth, meaning you cannot have any cavities or infections of any kind. If you do have one of those things, we will have to resolve the problem first. Once it’s taken care of, we can shift our focus to your appearance and revisit the idea of cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile.
Which Cosmetic Procedure(s) Should I Choose?
With so many amazing options to pick from, it may be a little confusing to make your selection. Sometimes multiple procedures are the way to go, but other times, you can accomplish what you want with just one. Luckily, you don’t have to make this decision on your own. When you come in for your consultation, we’ll ask about your goals and what you’d like to see in your new smile. Then, we can recommend the procedure(s) that can get you there!
How Long Does Treatment Take?
The amount of treatment time required depends on which procedure(s) you will undergo. If you are whitening your teeth at our office, your appointment will only be a little over an hour long, but other treatments take a few weeks to achieve the final results. Regardless of the work you have done, you’re sure to love what you see by the time we’re finished. The time you spend improving your smile will be well worthwhile!
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
The timeframe in which you can enjoy the results of treatment will depend on which procedure(s) you get. With teeth whitening, you can expect your teeth to stay brilliant for a few years before stains start to set in again. Veneers and Lumineers, however, can reach the 10-year mark and still be in good shape. However, a huge determinant is how well you keep up oral hygiene at home and whether you come in for your six-month cleanings and checkups. Maintaining your smile properly will ensure the longest lifespan possible.
