Porcelain Veneers

Using small, ultra-thin shells, porcelain veneers fit snugly over the surface of your teeth, covering any and all imperfections. Whether you have chips, cracks, stains, discoloration, gaps between your teeth, minor misalignments, crooked or misshapen teeth, these wafer-thin coverings are customized to give you a natural look and feel. Plus, they’re much more stain-resistant than traditional tooth enamel. The process to receive porcelain veneers often takes two appointments, but once they are put into place, you can expect them to last a decade or more with proper care and maintenance.

Do you have crooked, overcrowded, or gapped teeth? Maybe your bite is misaligned and is causing chronic jaw pain? These types of orthodontic issues can be remedied with the help of Invisalign. Using clear, plastic aligners, your teeth will gently shift in the right direction over the course of 12-24 months, depending on the severity of your individual case. Not only is this a more discreet and subtle alternative to traditional metal braces, but you will have greater flexibility during treatment, and you’ll see results much quicker! Invisalign uses no wires or brackets, so you’ll never have to worry about soft tissue irritation or being unable to enjoy the foods you love.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

When cavities develop, the only effective way to restore your tooth’s structure is to insert a filling. Fortunately, traditional amalgam isn’t the only option. Tooth-colored fillings make it possible to fix this common dental problem without compromising your appearance. Using composite resin that is matched to your natural tooth color, we will fill the cavity and seal it off to prevent further reinfection. The resin is placed directly onto the tooth enamel and sculpted to lay flat against your tooth. A curing light is used to harden it into place, making it virtually impossible for anyone to notice you’ve had work done on your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Stains and discoloration can develop for a variety of reasons: age, consuming too many dark-colored beverages, smoking, etc. No matter the reason, we are happy to provide teeth whitening as a cosmetic service. Using professional-grade bleaching gel, we can blast away stubborn surface and deep-down stains, leaving you with a whiter, brighter smile in less time than it takes with one of those over-the-counter whitening kits. By opting for professional teeth whitening, you can guarantee high-quality results that will last with proper care.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cost of cosmetic dentistry in Arlington

The cost of cosmetic dentistry in Arlington is one of the most defining factors for patients considering treatment. It’s natural to wonder how much you can expect to pay for your new smile, but it cannot be determined until you schedule an appointment with Dr. Baldwin. It is during this visit that he will evaluate your smile and incorporate the different variables that will ultimately come together to formulate your cost estimate. We’ll then discuss available payment options to make the financial side of treatment easy and stress-free.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

Woman seeking veneers in Arlington There are many different options for cosmetic dentistry at Foundation Dental Solutions. Below are the available treatments we offer, each at different price points:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are thin sheath coverings that fit over the front surfaces of your teeth to hide imperfections of all types. Crafted and placed in just two appointments, they do require the small removal of tooth enamel, making them semi-permanent. As a result, they are costlier than other cosmetic options but can last a decade or longer with regular care.
  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is highly affordable for most patients and offers a quick and easy way to eliminate stains and discoloration above and below the gumline.
  • Invisalign: Straightening teeth takes time and money, which is why Invisalign is more expensive but also a worthwhile investment. When teeth are crooked, gapped, or misaligned and causing problems with your oral health, it can be beneficial to pursue orthodontic treatment as opposed to more cosmetic solutions.
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: When a cavity forms, having a tooth-colored filling instead of using traditional amalgam is sure to not only better protect your tooth but also provide a more pleasing aesthetic.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making

Not only will you see a noticeable difference in your appearance, helping you to feel more confident, but you’ll also improve your oral health.

By addressing gaps between your teeth, crookedness, or even staining, you are improving the state of your smile. The risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and even jaw pain can be minimized by pursuing cosmetic treatment, which means fewer visits to the dentist’s office for restorative or emergency dental care.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Woman smiling in Arlington   It is true that most dental insurance companies will not pay for cosmetic dental treatments. Because they are viewed as “elective,” they are not considered medically necessary. This leaves patients looking for other ways to afford this type of care. Fortunately, at Foundation Dental Solutions, we offer flexible financing through CareCredit and Lending Club. These third-party companies make it easy to apply for a low- or no-interest plan, and the best part is there are no surprise fees! You can spread out the cost of your treatment into monthly installments, making it easy to stay within your budget.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

It’s impossible to know everything there is to know about cosmetic dentistry. This is why we make it easy for interested patients to come to one location and learn more. Below, you will find a list of frequently asked questions from our patients who want to know about the process, procedures, and reasons for cosmetic dental care. From cost and expectations to candidacy and choosing a professional, you can get the details you need to make the right decision for your smile.

How long does cosmetic dentistry last?

The longevity of your results is dependent on how well you take care of your smile. Some are generally going to last longer than others (i.e., veneers vs. teeth whitening); however, as long as you commit to good oral hygiene and avoid unhealthy habits like smoking, you can expect that your results will last much longer.

Typically, veneers can last 10+ years, while direct bonding may only last between 5 and 7 years. Teeth whitening may require touch-ups after several months, and gum recontouring is permanent because gum tissue will not grow back.

Why is cosmetic dentistry so popular?

In the past, dentists typically focused on repairing patients’ smiles; however, nowadays, social media and greater visibility are now keeping dentists busy performing cosmetic dental treatments. People are beginning to care more about their appearances, and one of the most obvious is the smile. By offering these services to more than just celebrities, people can enjoy more beautiful smiles that enhance confidence and boost opportunities for professional advancement.

How do I know if I need cosmetic dentistry?

You’ll need to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist to find out if you are a candidate. Most people who are displeased with some part of their smile can receive cosmetic dental care; however, it is necessary that tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease not be present beforehand. If they are, appropriate treatment must first be administered.

You might think that over-the-counter products are enough to improve the look of your teeth, but if you want safe and reliable results that won’t have you wasting money, it’s best that you stick with a professional who is well-versed and trained to provide these services.

Chips, cracks, misshapen teeth, minor misalignment, gapped teeth, stains, and discoloration are all reasons to choose cosmetic dentistry. It will be up to you and your dentist to determine which service is right for you.

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by insurance?

No, it is usually not covered by dental insurance. The reason is that most of these services are deemed “elective,” so they are not medically necessary. As a result, you are left to determine how you will pay for treatment. Fortunately, Dr. Baldwin provides a partnership with flexible financing companies CareCredit and Lending Club. This makes it easy to enroll in a low-to-no-interest payment plan, keeping your out-of-pocket expenses lower as you pay off your treatment over several months.
