Why Choose Mt. Holly Family Dentistry for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Dentist Trained to Administer BOTOX®
- Advanced Digital Smile Design Technology
- High-Quality Dental Materials Used
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic restorations that attach to the front surfaces of teeth, quickly and effectively concealing any number of chips, cracks, gaps, and stains. In the past, a large amount of surface enamel needed to be removed to prepare the tooth to receive the restoration. Innovations in the technology used to craft veneers and the materials they’re made from make today’s porcelain veneers extremely thin, requiring less enamel to be altered in order to place them. Despite the thinness of the veneers, they are still very durable lasting for more than a decade with proper care.
We may need to remove a minimal amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth to ensure the veneer blends into the natural smile line. Then, we’ll capture impressions of the prepared teeth that are used to craft the custom veneer. Before you leave, we’ll secure temporary veneers over your prepared teeth so you can get used to the way they look and feel. Once we receive the final restoration, you’ll return to our dental office to exchange the temporary for the custom porcelain veneer, transforming even the most flawed teeth into picture-perfect smiles.
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
Do you have a noticeable metal crown that everybody can see whenever you eat, speak, or laugh? Instead of having metal be the most remarkable feature of your smile, let your natural, beautiful pearly whites be! We offer customized dental crowns that are crafted from natural-looking, safe materials like Emax, zirconia, and porcelain fused to metal. With the proper care, they can last for years to come, protecting your damaged teeth and beautifying your grin.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Many people don’t go through the trouble of having chipped and cracked teeth fixed because they think that they’ll need expensive and extensive dental treatments to do so. However, that’s not always the case. With composite resin (the same material we use to treat cavities), our dentists can sculpt the missing portion of your tooth to restore its entire structure. Due to the biocompatible nature of the resin, it’s able to chemically fuse with your enamel for a strong, long-lasting restoration.
BOTOX® for Smile Enhancement
We offers BOTOX injections for smile enhancement and TMJ therapy. She has completed additional training to be able to provide this age-defying treatment to our patients. Depending on your goals, she will administer injections into the areas around your mouth to help them appear more smooth and youthful, enhancing your smile alongside your overall appearance.
As we age, our cheeks and lips naturally lose collagen, which is the substance that gives skin its supple appearance and volume. This can lead to a loss of youthful fullness and cause wrinkles to form around the mouth. Fortunately, Juvederm allows us to restore this lost volume using just a few painless, targeted injections. This can give the face better proportions while removing annoying fine lines near the lips and nose, helping someone look years younger, and the results can be trusted to last for several months.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Many patients want to brighten their smiles. You may have seen the commercials promoting countless over the counter whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, strips, and gels, and after trying these products with no luck, patients often come to us with one question, “Does professional teeth whitening actually work?” The answer is simple – yes.
The primary difference between whitening on your own and working with our team is that dentists know when patients’ teeth will respond to whitening, and we won’t recommend this procedure unless we know you’re a good candidate. At Mt. Holly Family Dentistry, we’re happy to offer take-home teeth whitening kits that deliver smiles up to ten shades brighter over the course of treatment.
Do you have several different cosmetic imperfections that you’d like to fix, improving the overall appearance of your grin? With our complete smile makeover, you don’t have to worry about coming in for several separate consultations and rehashing the same problems with our team over and over again. With a single appointment, we can create a customized treatment plan that addresses all of your goals and dental needs. You can learn more about this process by clicking on the link below.
Digital Smile Design
Have you ever looked at your smile and wondered what it would look like if it was brighter, straighter, the gaps between teeth were smaller, or any number of other changes? You’re not alone. Many patients visit our dental office for cosmetic dentistry consultations who want to transform their smiles, but they just don’t know where to begin. At Mt. Holly Family Dentistry, we use digital smile design to offer patients a preview of what their smile could look like with any number of changes. We can demonstrate the results of whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth replacement, and any number of other restorative or cosmetic treatment options.
We start this process by taking pictures of patients smiling. Next, we use a special computer software to apply various treatment options for patients to preview. Some patients know right away which service is right for them, but there’s no rush. We’re happy to provide copies of the images for patients to take home, share with friends and family, and get feedback on. Our goal is to ensure everyone feels 100% confident in the treatments they select.
Losing facial collagen is a reality as you grow older. As a result, you may notice that your skin begins to look older and less vibrant than before. However, with dermal fillers, you can turn back the clock by enhancing your lips and cheeks while reducing and eliminating age lines. Using this method of treatment allows you to treat sunken scars and boost sagging skin, creating a more beautiful, younger-looking you!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
A beautiful smile is possible with the help of a cosmetic dentist in Mt. Holly. Although you’d love to achieve the smile of your dreams, it’s normal to have a few concerns before you are ready to move forward with anything. Your dentist will explain everything during your cosmetic consultation to have 100% confidence about the road ahead. In the meantime, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions to ease any apprehensions.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
You don’t have to be rich or famous to benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Contrary to what you might have heard, it’s affordable for everyone because there are treatments to fit all budgets. After examining your mouth and learning more about your goals, your dentist will recommend which procedures are right for you and your wallet. Various factors will affect the amount you’ll pay, like the complexity of your case, materials, and preparatory procedures. We will provide you with a personalized estimate and explain the fees. Our office offers multiple financial solutions to accommodate your budget, like third-party financing.
Is cosmetic dentistry covered by dental insurance?
Generally, dental insurance won’t pay for elective services, but there are certain exceptions. Many cosmetic procedures offer restorative benefits, like dental bonding or all-ceramic crowns. If treatment is necessary for your dental health, like fixing a chipped tooth, you can use your dental insurance to offset the cost. Every policy and situation is different, but most plans cover 50% to 80% of restorative procedures after meeting your deductible. You may also use your dental insurance for other steps in your treatment, like the consultation, imaging, or preparatory procedures. A member of our team will work on your behalf with your insurance to maximize any appropriate benefits. They’ll explain how your coverage is being used and if you owe any remaining balance. We accept various payment methods for any out-of-pocket expenses, like third-party financing. You can pay for your new smile using little to no interest monthly installments based on your credit approval.
How long does cosmetic dentistry last?
Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t involve a single procedure. Instead, it consists of a variety of services that focus on aesthetics. As a result, every procedure has a different life expectancy. Depending on your treatment plan, your results can last for several weeks or decades. Your cosmetic dentist will explain how long you can expect your results to last. You can get the most from your investment by committing to your oral hygiene. Besides brushing and flossing, visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. It is best to break any bad habits that can compromise your smile, like smoking, using your teeth to open bottle caps, or chewing on your fingernails. Wear an athletic mouthguard if you play sports, and ask your dentist for a nightguard if you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth. You can ensure your stunning smile lasts for years with the right maintenance.
