Porcelain Veneers

If you’ve ever watched a movie or turned on the TV, you’ve definitely seen porcelain veneers. They are extremely thin ceramic coverings designed to look like flawless white enamel, and they can be fitted directly over the front of the teeth to mask a wide variety of flaws. They are pretty much standard for everyone in Hollywood! In just two appointments, Dr. Moneyhun can use them to make stains, chips, cracks, and gaps disappear behind a pristine white smile.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

We’re often tasked with repairing teeth that show prominently in the smile, and in these delicate situations, we know that strength and beauty are of equal importance. With metal-free crowns, we’re able to give our patients the best of both. Milled from 100% dental porcelain, these crowns can be shaped and shaded to perfectly mimic the appearance of a real tooth, even down to enamel’s slight translucency. The end result is dental work that looks nothing like dental work!

Dental Bonding

If you’re looking for a quick fix for an annoying stain or chip in your smile, then direct bonding is the ideal solution. Dr. Moneyhun will apply a color-matched composite resin to your tooth and sculpt it to look like a regular part of the enamel, hiding any imperfection along the way. The procedure itself is extremely quick (usually taking less than an hour), painless, and the results can be trusted to last for up to 10 years.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Simply use our kit daily for about two weeks while you’re surfing the web or binging your favorite show, and your smile will easily become 6-8 shades whiter!

When you began researching cosmetic dentistry, was one of your first questions, “How much does it cost?” You’re not alone. However, you may have found that pinpointing an exact amount is difficult without a personal consultation. Until your appointment arrives, you can learn more about the price right here. Otherwise, you can give us a call and talk to one of our knowledgeable team members over the phone!

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

Naturally, this is one of the questions that you and our skilled cosmetic dentist in Landrum will discuss during your appointment. After learning more about your dental needs and smile goals, you’ll decide if one or more of the following smile-enhancing treatments is right for you:

  • Veneers – While veneers do require a larger investment, there are several noteworthy benefits that offset the cost. A 15+ year lifespan, the ability to address several dental flaws at once, complete customization, and a quick turn-around time are a few notable ones.
  • Direct Bonding – Meant to correct small changes, like minor chips and discoloration, direct bonding is one of the most cost-effective options. Of course, it doesn’t last anywhere near as long as veneers, which means you’ll need to consider the cost of re-treatment as well.
  • Teeth Whitening – Take-home teeth whitening allows you to noticeably whiten your smile from the comfort of your own home. It’s typically mid-range in terms of cost, but it’s a better investment than store-bought options since they reliably deliver results in just one or two weeks.

Why Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Whether you’re a new patient or a long-time friend at this point, we can honestly tell you that cosmetic dentistry benefits so much more than your confidence. Sure, enhancing your smile can boost your self-esteem, but it can also improve your chewing patterns and oral health. The domino effects of these changes can positively impact your personal and professional life in the process. As a result, cosmetic dentistry isn’t just an investment in your smile; it’s an investment in you!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Since the cost of cosmetic dentistry in Landrum is rarely covered by dental insurance, you may be wondering what your other options are. There’s good news on this front: our team is proud to welcome flexible financing! With a trusted third-party financier like CareCredit in your corner, you can opt for a payment plan instead of having to pay for your treatment in one lump sum. Even better, some plans come with little-to-no interest attached, making the cost more affordable in the short and long-term.

Smile Makeover

Do most or all of your teeth need to be improved in some way? When you want to enhance your entire grin, it may be worth considering a smile makeover. This isn’t a singular treatment; it’s actually a combination of multiple cosmetic services that are carefully selected to help achieve all of your smile goals. The details of the process vary from patient to patient, but the end goal is always the same: a radiant new smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Maybe you’re considering investing in a cosmetic dentistry treatment, but you feel like you need to learn a bit more about the process first. In addition to the information already laid out on this page, we’ve decided to take the time to answer some frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry down below. For the answers to any questions that aren’t on this page, just give us a call and ask!

Am I Too Old for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Thanks to advancement in modern technology and medicine, today’s seniors are living more active lifestyles than ever before. Whether you’re preparing for a job interview or plunging back into the dating scene, it never hurts to have a beautiful smile. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry has no upper age limit. You’re never too old to get your teeth whitened or conceal other aesthetic imperfections with treatments like porcelain veneers. No matter your age, we encourage you to schedule a cosmetic consultation with us to find out which treatment would make you look and feel your best.

Can My Teenager Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?

While we typically don’t recommend cosmetic procedures for children, teens and young adults may make great candidates for some of these treatments. In this age of social media, teens are incredibly conscious of their image, and that includes their smile. Teeth whitening is by far our most popular cosmetic service among teens. We can also offer porcelain veneers to correct more stubborn stains as well as structural flaws like cracks or chips. Dental bonding can be used as a more conservative way to address these issues.

Does It Hurt to Get Cosmetic Dental Work Done?

When preparing your teeth to receive restorations like veneers or crowns, we’ll make sure to numb your mouth beforehand so that you don’t feel any pain. In most cases, dental bonding and teeth whitening don’t even require the application of a local anesthetic. It’s worth mentioning that while many store-bought teeth whitening products cause sensitivity or soft tissue irritation, our treatment is designed with your comfort in mind. You shouldn’t experience either of these discomforts while using our custom-made trays and bleaching gel.

How Much Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?

Because each patient and each cosmetic service is different, there is no set cost of getting cosmetic dental work done. Treatments that last longer, such as veneers, tend to cost more than others, like teeth whitening or bonding.

Although most dental insurance companies won’t cover the cost of cosmetic dentistry, it’s always worth checking your individual plan. In some cases, cosmetic treatment, like crowns, can overlap with restorative dentistry. If this happens, your insurance company may cover up to 80% of the cost. Ultimately, the only way to know how much your treatment will cost is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Moneyhun.
