Porcelain veneers allow us to change the shape, size, color, and spacing of a patient’s teeth in as little as two appointments, dramatically improving their appearance with just one simple procedure. We place thin ceramic coverings over the front of the teeth that act as masks to create a more attractive and uniform smile. They are always custom-made, and you can get just one or an entire set to achieve the makeover you desire.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

A variety of ceramic dental restorations

Traditionally, if you needed any type of smile repair for a decayed or broken tooth, your dentist would inevitably place some metal into your mouth. This always sticks out in the smile and makes many patients feel self-conscious. Thankfully, Dr. Shtarkman and Dr. Salib can now provide metal-free fillings and crowns that both look real and can be trusted to last for many years. These treatments allow patients to improve the health and appearance of their smile at the same time, which is all that you could ask for!

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic bonding enables our dentists to quickly and easily eliminate minor stains, chips, and cracks in as little as an hour. A composite resin shaded to match your enamel is applied to an imperfect tooth, and then your dentist will shape and mold it to cover any flaw. After you approve the final look, the material is hardened, and it will look like nothing was ever wrong with your tooth in the first place.

Teeth Whitening

Do you wish you had a whiter smile? You're not alone. Every year, patients just like you turn to teeth whitening for a more dazzling smile. But while over-the-counter whitening products may offer some help, it takes a professional whitening system to see true results. At our Parma Heights dental office, we're proud to offer both in-office and take-home whitening. With in-office whitening, Dr. Shtarkman can create beautiful results for you in just a single visit. Take-home whitening, meanwhile, lets you achieve stunning results in the comfort of your own home over a period of multiple days.

If you're considering teeth whitening, let us talk to you about the solution that's most right for you. We can explain the benefits of each and help you make an informed choice that leads to beautiful results.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Because many cosmetic dental procedures are elective and intended to enhance your appearance, they may not be covered by your dental insurance policy. However, we believe that cost shouldn’t keep you from having the beautiful smile that you deserve. We offer several treatment options at various price points so that you can find something in your budget. If you have questions about what’s covered by your insurance, contact us and our friendly staff would be happy to assist you.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

It’s natural to want to enhance your smile, and we’re happy to provide you with options that can help. Whether you’re hoping to brighten your grin, address a small crack, or fix misshapen or uneven teeth, we have solutions to address it, including:

  • Porcelain veneers- These may be more expensive upfront than other treatments, but they can easily address several problems like discolored, gapped, misaligned, and chipped teeth. Plus, they’re customized to match your natural teeth and can last 10+ years with the right care.
  • Cosmetic dental bonding- This non-invasive procedure can reshape damaged teeth, mask flaws, and reduce the appearance of stains. It can typically be completed in a single appointment and it’s among the most affordable of all cosmetic treatment options, making it a highly convenient choice.
  • Teeth whitening- We use professional-grade materials to lighten your teeth in the office and can also provide you with a take-home kit that includes customized trays for optimal results. This is one of the most cost-effective ways to brighten your smile by several shades.
  • Metal-free dental restorations- In the past, metallic alloys were used to mend broken or damaged teeth which often left patients feeling self-conscious. Today, we can use tooth-colored restorations to repair your teeth. This is a cost-effective way to mend them while maintaining a natural look and feel.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Cosmetic dentistry can be an investment in both time and resources, but the benefits you’ll gain are priceless. Once you’ve invested in your grin, you’re more likely to practice consistent oral hygiene habits at home, like regular brushing and flossing, to maintain the results. Plus, the confidence that comes with a beautiful smile can help you feel more self-assured at work, school, and other activities and engagements. You can enjoy a more successful career as well as deeper relationships and a more rewarding social life as a result.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Although there may be some exceptions, typically dental insurance policies typically don’t cover the cost of cosmetic work. If your plan doesn’t contribute to your treatments, we have other ways to help such as:

  • In-house memberships: We provide membership plans that come with no co-pays or deductibles to meet. This can help cover preventative care as well as cosmetic options, like tooth-colored restorations. We offer plans for one or two people, depending on your needs, and are happy to assist with the paperwork.
  • Flexible financing: For the uninsured, we partner with third-party financing companies like CareCredit and Proceed Financing. This allows you to break down your payments into more manageable installments instead of paying the cost all at once. We can even help you apply to see if you qualify.

Before we can provide price estimates, you’ll need to come in for a consultation appointment. Once we’ve examined your mouth and identified possible treatment options, then we can provide an accurate cost analysis to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

If you aren’t fully confident or happy with your smile, then there’s a good chance that enhancing your teeth with cosmetic dentistry would help you.

For example, you might consider these treatments if you have stains or blemishes, which are considered by many to be unattractive features. Over-the-counter whitening kits can cause tooth sensitivity and may not result in the outcome you were hoping for, but professional whitening can safely lighten your grin by several shades.

Also, if you’re frustrated by aesthetic flaws like chips, cracks, minor gaps, or slightly crooked teeth then you could benefit from options like porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding. Both are versatile solutions that hide imperfections while simultaneously shielding your compromised tooth from potential injury down the road.

The best way to decide whether cosmetic dentistry is right for you is to contact us and schedule a consultation. We’ll gladly examine your mouth and offer suggestions based on our findings.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

There’s no one way to answer this question because it depends on the procedure. Quick and easy methods like teeth whitening and direct bonding, for instance, may not last as long as a more permanent option like porcelain veneers.

Although it varies based on your circumstances, some typical timelines include:

  • Teeth whitening: 6 months to 3 years
  • Cosmetic dental bonding: 3 to 10 years
  • Metal-free restorations: 10 to 15 years
  • Porcelain veneers: 15+ years

The results of your procedure may have a shorter or longer lifespan based on your dental condition and at-home hygiene habits. By brushing and flossing twice daily and scheduling regular dental checkups, you have a much better chance of keeping your perfect smile longer.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Many patients worry about whether their treatment will hurt and avoid making changes as a result. Our dentists know this and will make every effort to ensure that you feel calm and comfortable throughout your elected procedure(s). It may help to know that most cosmetic services are considered non-invasive. Some, like teeth whitening, are so simple that they don’t even require a topical anesthetic.

Other treatments, like porcelain veneers, are a bit more complex. We’ll have to remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth for these covers to align with your gums. Although it’s not usually considered painful, we’ll numb the area so that you don’t experience discomfort.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Worth It?

The condition of your grin can greatly influence your daily quality of life because it’s one of the first things others notice about you. If yours is riddled with flaws, it might communicate that you don’t care about your appearance or put effort into caring for yourself. Plus, it can leave you feeling so self-conscious that you withdraw from social activities for fear of judgment.

Dental cosmetic improvements can boost your self-confidence and increase your chances of being successful. You’ll have beautiful teeth to show off for any important occasions like job interviews, first dates, or family gatherings. Plus, when you smile it tells others that you’re friendly and approachable so you can once again enjoy a happy, active social life.
