Gain Your Perfect Smile

If you’ve clicked onto this page, then that means there is something about your smile that you simply don’t like. Perhaps your teeth aren’t as white as they should be, or perhaps you have chips or gaps that are always on your mind. Previously thought to be only for celebrities and the elite, cosmetic dentistry can now give everyone the smile of their dreams in just a few easy appointments. Whether you’re looking for a subtle or dramatic improvement, we have exactly what you need. It’s all about what you want, and we can always give it to you here at Abington Family Dental Care.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Graphic of dental fillingOur office only uses tooth-colored fillings as opposed to traditional metal-fillings to repair small cavities and slightly damaged teeth. This is because, thanks to the composite resin material used in the fillings, they can be specially shaded to seamlessly blend with a person’s smile. Plus, the material actually forms a stronger bond with the enamel than metal, assuring that your renewed tooth won’t just look great, but it’ll also be built to last as well.

Professional Teeth Whitening

We offer both in-office and take-home methods, and no matter which one you choose, it’ll effortlessly break up longstanding stains and give you a smile that is up to 8 shades whiter. Plus, thanks to the professional-grade products you can only get with us, your brighter smile will last much longer and you won’t have any lasting sensitivity.

Porcelain Veneers

They are custom-made, wafer-thin coverings that are bonded to the front of the teeth, and they can improve their appearance in every way you can imagine. With just two easy appointments, they can get rid of stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and even straighten slightly misaligned teeth. Also, thanks to the quality of dental-grade porcelain, they are even stain-resistant, meaning you can enjoy that extra cup of coffee or glass of wine and not worry about it affecting your smile.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that simply fits over the top of a broken or decayed tooth, and it can improve a tooth’s shape, size, and color as well as restore its lost structure and strength. Each one is completely custom-made for every patient, and you can get one in as little as two appointments. They can even be used to replace missing teeth by forming a dental bridge.

All-Ceramic Dental Crowns

In the end, it will give you a new tooth that you’ll be able to trust whether you’re eating, speaking, or just smiling for the camera.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

We understand that many people would like to enhance their smile, but they may hesitate to commit to cosmetic services due to concerns about cost. This is especially true because in the vast majority of cases, insurance does not cover aesthetic treatments. Our team is ready to give you straightforward pricing information about your desired treatment. We want you to feel confident about your decision to makeover your smile!

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

Cosmetic dentistry has a reputation for being expensive, but that is not necessarily true. In fact, we offer a number of treatments at different price points that have the potential to help you achieve whiter teeth, straighter teeth, and/or different sized or shaped teeth:

  • Direct bonding. Also known as dental bonding or cosmetic bonding, this is a fast and low-priced service that can disguise chips, cracks, discoloration, and more.
  • Teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is excellent for getting rid of stubborn dental stains. It may cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to one thousand dollars or more.
  • These custom pieces of porcelain can hide a broad range of aesthetic imperfections. They can cost several thousand dollars, but their durability and natural appearance make them a great value!
  • Invisalign is ideal for patients with significant dental misalignment. Treatment usually requires several months or longer and may cost a few thousand dollars or more.
  • Smile makeover. A smile makeover combines several cosmetic services in order to achieve optimum results. It is the most expensive way to enhance your smile, but it is also the most efficient and comprehensive path to a perfect smile. Plus, it may cost less than getting several different services done separately.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Cosmetic dentistry can seem like a big financial commitment, but consider what you could get for your money:

  • A natural-looking smile that complements your facial characteristics.
  • Enhanced confidence that allows you to thrive in social situations.
  • Increased motivation to take excellent care of your oral health.
  • The ability to make a great first impression at work (research indicates that an attractive smile can be a powerful agent for career advancement).
  • An improved state of mind and overall quality of life.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Dental insurance almost never covers services that are deemed to be elective. Therefore, you should not rely on your benefits to help you pay for any treatments that have purely aesthetic benefits, such as teeth whitening and veneers. However, in some cases, it may cover cosmetic services that have oral health benefits, such as metal-free restorations.

Aside from insurance, there are a few provisions that might make it easier for you to afford your desired treatment:

  • Many patients qualify for low-interest financing through CareCredit.
  • The Essential Dental plan. This discount plan provides reduced fees on many services that are not covered by traditional insurance.
  • FREE smile makeover consultation. You can take this important first step on your journey for absolutely nothing out of pocket.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

If you are interested in enhancing the appearance of your smile, our team would be pleased to help you reach your goals. Before you book your appointment, though, you might want to learn more about the experience that awaits you. We understand your feelings. To assist you, we have put together a brief list of FAQs about cosmetic dentistry. If your questions are not addressed here, feel free to give us a call. We are eager to speak with you!

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Cosmetic dentistry can vary greatly in price. Some treatments cost just a few hundred dollars, whereas a complete smile makeover can run thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. During your consultation, we can provide a personalized price estimate and help you explore your payment options.

Although some cosmetic treatments can seem expensive, it is important to think about what you are getting for your money. Your results might last for years! Plus, it is difficult to assign a monetary value to the increased confidence that you may be able to enjoy.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

As long as cosmetic services are performed by a qualified dental professional, they come with a very low level of risk. Our team places a strong emphasis on patient safety, and we would never recommend any treatment with serious potential to harm your oral or overall health.

Cosmetic dentistry is only risky in certain settings. For example, some DIY “hacks” that you might come across on social media are likely to harm your teeth. It is best to leave your care in the hands of a well-trained dental team.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

How long your results last will depend on a few factors, including the treatment you undergo and your lifestyle habits. For example, teeth whitening can give you a brighter smile that lasts anywhere from a few months to a few years. Veneers may last for 10 – 15 years or longer.

To extend the results of your cosmetic treatment, you should:

  • Stick to a thorough oral hygiene routine.
  • Make wise dietary choices.
  • Attend a dental checkup and cleaning every six months.
  • Wear a mouthguard when you play sports (or if you grind your teeth at night).
  • Avoid the use of tobacco products.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Most cosmetic treatments are relatively comfortable; we do all we can to create a positive experience for patients. Plus, some services, such as teeth whitening and dental bonding, are noninvasive.

Of course, it must be acknowledged that some treatments can cause a temporary increase in dental sensitivity or some general soreness. Dietary changes, over-the-counter pain relievers, and other measures can reduce your discomfort while you are waiting for your mouth to feel normal again.
