Cosmetic Dentistry for a Confident Smile
It is important to feel confident in your smile, because being confident in your smile means being confident in yourself. Despite this, many people walk around every day, resigned to the fact that their smile is what it is and there is really nothing they can do to change it. But what if that was not the case? What if improving the aesthetic appearance and/or functionality of your smile was easier than you thought?
At Dental Serenity™, we offer a comprehensive range of cosmetic dental procedures that will correct a range of cosmetic issues, including a gummy smile, recessed gums, discolored or stained teeth, crooked teeth, missing teeth, gaps in teeth, teeth that are disproportionately stained, overcrowding, and more. Whatever your goal is, we are committed to helping you achieve optimal cosmetic results while still preserving or improving overall functionality.
If you are interested in learning more about the cosmetic services we offer, or if you would like to schedule a consultation to discuss available cosmetic procedures, contact our office at 703-445-9600, stop by our clinic located at 17181 Wayside Dr., Dumfries, Virginia, or schedule an appointment online.
Which Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure is Right for Me?
We offer a range of cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
Determining which procedure or procedures is right for you will require an initial consultation to evaluate your overall oral health and determine whether there are any underlying health issues that need to be addressed prior to pursuing cosmetic treatments.
Following this, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and address any questions or concerns you might have. This conversation will also involve a discussion of what kind of outcomes you can reasonably expect and what treatment options are best suited for your financial needs and personal treatment goals. Once you are satisfied with a cosmetic treatment plan, a follow-up appointment(s) to begin the process will be scheduled.
There are a number of cosmetic procedures that may be performed to help you achieve the smile of your dreams, including the following:
- Teeth Whitening: To help correct stained and yellowed teeth, we will place a special tray in your mouth that will apply the whitening product to your teeth. Unlike many over-the-counter teeth whitening products which can take weeks to provide results and contain chemicals that may cause discomfort or tooth sensitivity, our treatment provides noticeable results in just one hour and is free of all those chemicals.
- Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are an effective way to correct teeth that are stained or damaged, make teeth even in length, close a gap between teeth, and/or make teeth look larger.
- Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are a popular option for patients whose teeth are broken or severely damaged, as they improve both appearance and functionality. Like dental veneers, crowns can also correct teeth that are stained or damaged, make teeth even in length, close gaps, and make teeth look larger. Unlike veneers, dental crowns surround the entire tooth, which provides greater overall stability.
- Dental Implants: In addition to an increased risk of developing other oral health issues and diminished ability to enjoy foods, having a missing tooth or teeth can have a very negative impact on one’s sense of self-esteem. Dental implants are a safe and effective method for replacing missing teeth and will provide you with a durable long-term solution that looks and feels just like your natural teeth.
Steps You Can Take to Improve the Cosmetic Appearance of Your Smile
While there are certain aspects of your smile that may require cosmetic intervention, there are also steps you can take at home to improve the appearance of your smile. One of the most effective ways to do so is by practicing good oral hygiene habits. If your teeth stain easily, you may want to consider using specially formulated tooth whitening toothpaste. Being mindful of your diet and avoiding foods or substances that can cause teeth to stain (sugary drinks, chewing tobacco, curry, tomato-based sauces) can also help ensure a white, bright smile. In addition to practicing good self-care, it is also important to schedule regular examinations with your dentist or periodontist so they can perform deep cleanings and monitor your overall oral health to ensure that your teeth and gums are not only aesthetically pleasing, but healthy as well.
What is the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry?
The cost of a cosmetic procedure or procedures will depend on a variety of factors, including what type and how many procedures you are having performed and whether you are covered by dental insurance. If you do have dental insurance, your final bill will be determined by your dental insurance coverage, co-pay requirements, and annual deductibles, although cosmetic procedures may not be covered under your plan, so be sure to contact our office and/or your provider to determine whether the procedure you would like to have is covered.
Our clinic is in network with most PPOs and accepts all insurance plans. We also offer interest free financing through Lending Club, and CareCredit, or you may consider joining our Dental Serenity Membership Club to save money on treatment and simplify your payments for preventative care.
