Why Choose Broad Park Family Dentistry for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Completely Personalized Treatment for Each Patient
- Results That Look Natural & Never Overdone
- Durable Materials Ensure Decades of Stunning Smiles
With veneers, we place thin sheaths of porcelain on the front of the teeth, and they can be used to enhance every aspect of the smile while covering multiple flaws at the same time. Each veneer is custom made for every patient, and you can get one or an entire set in as little as two appointments. Even better, they have been shown to last for about 20 years with minimal maintenance.
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
At Broad Park Family Dentistry, we can use metal-free crowns to repair severely damaged teeth and also improve the appearance of misshapen and undersized teeth. We can shape and shade dental porcelain so that it resembles a pristine tooth and then place it within the smile, creating a seamless addition that blends perfectly in both form and function. Only you and Dr. Rudd will be able to tell which tooth isn’t your own!
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Cosmetic bonding allows Dr. Rudd to literally sculpt away minor imperfections in as little as an hour. If you have a small stain, chip, or gap, he can cover it with some composite resin, and then mold it to make the blemish disappear. After hardening and polishing it, the tooth will look like nothing was ever wrong with it, and you’ll instantly be able to enjoy the results. A faster and more affordable alternative to veneers, bonding is perfect for quick fixes and tight schedules.
Opalescence® Teeth Whitening
Have a wedding, graduation, or other special event just around the corner, and you want your smile to be absolutely stunning? Or, are you ready to make annoying stains disappear? Either way, Opalescence whitening can easily brighten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single appointment without causing sensitivity. The powerful bleaching gel actually breaks the molecular bonds that bind stains to your teeth, meaning this treatment can get rid of them in as little as an hour.
Often, it isn’t the teeth that cause a patient to be unsatisfied with their smile, but rather their gums. Too much gum tissue can crowd the teeth, causing them to be short and stubby, and make the smile seem out of balance with the rest of the face. Rather than adjusting the teeth, Dr. Rudd can use a laser to painlessly remove excess gum tissue, revealing beautiful, previously hidden enamel. The teeth will appear longer, the smile will be fuller, and it can completely change the proportions of the face for the better, all over the course of one appointment!
Would you like to achieve straighter teeth but dislike the idea of getting braces? Ask us about SureSmile. This advanced treatment uses a series of custom clear aligners to gradually move teeth into their proper positions. SureSmile is so discreet that onlookers are unlikely to notice it. Plus, because the aligners are removable, you won’t have to worry about dietary restrictions or complex oral hygiene throughout treatment.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
You can turn the smile of your dreams into reality with cosmetic dentistry, but it's a big investment. It's normal to have a few concerns before you're ready to move forward. Your cosmetic dentist in Mansfield at Broad Park Family Dentistry will explain everything during your initial consultation, so you will know exactly what to expect on the road ahead. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?
Cosmetic dentistry is associated with a large price tag, but it's more affordable than many people realize. There are more options than ever before to address common aesthetic flaws, like discoloration, chips, and gaps. Therefore, there's a solution to fit your budget. After examining your mouth and learning more about your goals, your dentist will review all of your options to achieve a picture-perfect smile without spending your life's savings.
Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?
Depending on your treatment plan, your cosmetic dentist may use a local numbing agent to block any pain, but it isn't always necessary. Although you won't feel anything during your procedure, some treatments can cause temporary discomfort after the effects of any numbing agents dissipate. You can manage it by taking an over-the-counter pain reliever and applying a cold compress. It's best to eat soft foods until any tenderness subsides. Follow any additional aftercare instructions recommended by your dentist.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
No two treatment plans or situations are the same. Each procedure has a different life expectancy. Some results can last for many months or several years, but other procedures may last for a decade or longer. Not to mention, many factors affect the lifespan, like your oral hygiene routine, lifestyle habits, and regular dental care. Your cosmetic dentist will discuss how to get the most from your investment, like brushing, flossing, and using a daily mouthwash. Besides caring for your smile at home, visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. Break any bad habits that can damage your new smile, like chewing on your fingernails or using your teeth in place of scissors.
Can I Use My Dental Insurance for Cosmetic Dentistry?
It's not common for dental insurance to cover aesthetic services, but there are exceptions if a procedure is medically necessary. Many cosmetic treatments also provide restorative benefits, like dental bonding or crowns. If your dentist determines a procedure is crucial for your oral health, you may be able to use your coverage to offset the cost. Your benefits might also include your initial consultation or any preparatory procedures, like a dental cleaning or gum disease therapy. A member of our team will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any applicable benefits. They'll explain how your coverage is being used and your payment options for any remaining balance, like CareCredit. You can pay any out-of-pocket expenses using a monthly payment plan through a third-party financing company to keep a beautiful smile within your budget.
