Why Choose Perfect Smiles of Bensalem for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Traditional Veneers and Lumineers Available
- Metal-Free Restorations Utilized
- Invisalign Clear Aligners Offered In-House
Do you wish you could take care of chips, cracks, gaps, and stains all at the same time with a single treatment? Porcelain veneers might just be the solution for you! Each veneer is made from extremely thin porcelain and applied directly to the teeth visible in your smile. It’s one of the best ways to efficiently enhance your smile and always customized to make your smile more balanced. This is because we design the veneers not just with your smile in mind, but your face, skin tone and other preferences as well.
If you’ve ever needed to have restorations placed in the past, you likely needed to use metal materials to get it done. Your crown or filling was likely made from gold, silver or some other amalgamation of metals, leaving it unnatural in appearance. Today, you can achieve positive esthetics and longevity with tooth-colored materials like porcelain and composite resin! Whether you need a crown or bridge, your future restoration can look 100% natural and a part of your existing smile.
To get rid of chips, gaps, stains and cracks, direct bonding is by far one of the fastest, least invasive and more affordable methods out there. To do this, we apply composite resin directly to the tooth, smooth and sculpt the material, then harden it with a special curing light. By the end of treatment, any imperfections you previously had will be completely unrecognizable. Since composite resin is durable and custom-shaded to match your enamel, you can expect your new smile to last at least 10 years.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Does straightening your teeth sound too difficult because you don’t want to wear metal braces to get it done? With a series of clear aligners, you might not even have to resort to metal hardware in order to do so! These transparent trays work to gently shift teeth into a more aligned position, removing gaps, fixing rotated teeth, and making your smile more aligned overall. If you have mild to moderate levels of misalignment, good overall oral health, good gum health, and your permanent teeth have fully erupted, consider Invisalign for your next cosmetic treatment!
It doesn’t matter what cosmetic condition your smile might be in now, a smile makeover at our office can make all the difference for your appearance! Whether you have extensive decay, severe tooth loss, or permanent stains, our dentists can create a treatment plan that truly makes your smile shine for many years to come! We’ll discuss all the procedures that we believe will best address your smile so you can feel confident showing it off to friends and family!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Do you still have questions about cosmetic dentistry? Don’t worry – our team has the answers! Many of our patients are curious about the specific ways in which we can transform their smiles, as well as things like the costs and benefits of these services. That’s why your cosmetic dentist in Bensalem has compiled this list of frequently asked questions below. Of course, we’ll always be happy to answer any additional questions during your consultation.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dental Treatment Take?
Because everyone’s smile, and ideas of what make a smile beautiful, are unique, it’s impossible to give a definitive answer to this question. At Perfect Smiles of Bensalem, our cosmetic treatments are tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs and desires. For that reason, a consultation is necessary before we can determine which procedures we recommend and how long they’ll take.
That said, “quick and easy” services like in-office teeth whitening and direct bonding can often be completed in one appointment, while a full smile makeover may take several months or longer.
How Long Will the Results of Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
Again, it depends on which service(s) you’re undergoing. Teeth whitening often only lasts a few months, while veneers can last a decade or more with the right care. The results of Invisalign can even last a lifetime if you wear your retainer as directed.
Generally, your results will last longer the better you take care of your pearly whites. Make sure to keep up with your at-home oral hygiene, visit us regularly for checkups, and avoid consuming too many foods and drinks that stain teeth.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?
Not necessarily. We strive to keep our prices as fair and affordable as possible. With that in mind, the more customized a treatment is, the more it tends to cost. For example, dental bonding is one of our most affordable cosmetic services, yet the results are not quite as tailor-made as with veneers. While more comprehensive treatments like veneers cost more, they deliver a sense of self-confidence that it’s hard to put a price on!
Will My Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
Typically, dental insurance providers will not cover a procedure that is not deemed necessary to improve your oral health. Therefore, cosmetic dentistry is not usually covered. However, some cosmetic treatments, like metal-free dental crowns, overlap into restorative dentistry, which may receive partial coverage. In addition, some insurance providers will cover a portion of orthodontic treatment like Invisalign.
Our team will happily look over your plan and make sure you’re getting all of the coverage you qualify for. We also offer CareCredit financing to help you fund your smile makeover with little to no interest.
