Veneers

If your teeth are cracked, chipped, gapped, or otherwise irregular in appearance, our cosmetic dentists may recommend veneers. These ceramic shells are incredibly thin and durable, covering common imperfections while still reflecting light like natural enamel. Each veneer is custom-crafted to fit seamlessly into your smile, giving you the uniform, symmetrical look you’ve always wanted.

Metal-Free Restorations

Over the years, dental restorations have been made from a variety of materials, including metal. Today, the most popular material is ceramic. Because ceramic reflects light the way natural enamel does, patients with ceramic restorations achieve results that are more aesthetically appealing. What's more, most restoration procedures can be completed in as few as two visits to our Waco dental office.

Cosmetic Bonding

For small, minor imperfections, we can use the same composite resin that is applied when receiving tooth-colored fillings. Instead of filling a decayed tooth, though, we can place it directly onto the enamel, shaping and sculpting it into place. Once hardened, the cosmetic dental bonding will conceal the imperfection and create a new and improved, damage-free smile.

Teeth Whitening

For many men and women, staining and other discolorations are causes for concern when it comes to how they feel about their teeth. Coffee, wine, tea, tobacco, and even the natural process of aging all contribute to the darkening and yellowing of teeth over time. A dingy smile has been shown to make a person appear years older than they actually are. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening treatments from Heart of Texas Smiles General & Cosmetic Dentistry reverse the effects of time and environmental factors allowing your whitest smile to shine brilliantly through.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

While many patients may hesitate to spend money on treatments that seem to only address aesthetic issues, cosmetic dentistry can be a smart investment that pays dividends over time. A beautiful smile can open up all sorts of opportunities by helping you make a great first impression in the social scene or the professional world. While cosmetic dentistry isn’t usually covered by dental insurance, our staff will be happy to help you understand your needs and find the best solutions for your concerns. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

We offer a range of services at different price points that can deliver priceless benefits. Most people seeking cosmetic dental treatments want whiter, straighter, or differently shaped teeth, and our dentists have improved the smiles of countless patients with procedures such as:

Veneers: While a more costly option, veneers can completely transform a smile by covering up troubled teeth. These thin shells that mimic the appearance of healthy teeth can address flaws such as cracks, chips, gaps, and stains.

Cosmetic Bonding: This treatment is quite affordable and can be completed in minutes with no anesthesia or downtime during a routine dental appointment. By covering or filling chips, cracks, gaps, or stains, cosmetic bonding can help you enjoy a prettier smile for several years.

Metal-Free Restorations: These high-quality dental crowns that look just like natural dental structure can protect damaged teeth while restoring them to their original appearance and function. Dental insurance often covers restorative treatments like these at about 50%.

Teeth Whitening: Mid-range in price, teeth whitening treatments can leave your teeth up to eight shades whiter, making them far superior to any whitening products you can find at the store.

Smile Makeovers: An intensive program of several dental services can work wonders to restore and beautify a smile. Since smile makeovers include more than one treatment, they can be quite expensive.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

While cosmetic dentistry can be a significant financial commitment, investing in your beautiful smile can pay dividends over time. Having a smile you’re not proud of can take a toll on your self-esteem, and achieving a prettier smile can make it much easier to make a great first impression at work or in the social scene. This can yield lucrative professional opportunities as well as improvements in your quality of life.

 

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

While we accept many insurance plans, cosmetic dentistry is not usually covered by dental insurance. We do offer other options to make cosmetic dentistry more affordable, including:

  • Quality Dental Plans: For a low flat fee, you can have your basic dental services covered for the year while receiving significant discounts on all other treatments.
  • CareCredit and Lending Club: With a flexible financing plan from CareCredit or Lending Club, we can break your bill into monthly payments that can be easily managed with little to no interest.

We will not be able to provide you with a proper estimate until you have a consultation at our office. After that, our staff will be more than happy to help you navigate your insurance plan and financing options so that you can get the care you need in a way you can afford.
