Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are quality, tooth-colored restorations that are designed as wafer-thin sheaths, and they are ideal for patients who are hoping to treat several cosmetic flaws all at once. They do this by fitting directly over the visual surfaces of certain teeth and hiding chips, cracks, small gaps and more safely from view. In addition to being natural-looking, veneers are also very durable and resistant to staining. This means that once they are in place within your smile, they should retain their beautiful, flaw-free appearance for years.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

We understand that many of our patients become concerned when faced with the prospect of having metal, noticeably unnatural restorations added to their teeth. You deserve to maintain a confident appearance, which is why Devoted Family Dental Phoenix offers metal-free restorations as a wonderful alternative. The quality materials we use are colored just like natural tooth enamel while also providing your smile with plenty of strength and function. They are also highly biocompatible, which means that they complement your health and are more comfortable overall. Our team wants your smile to be impressive in every way possible!

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Patient receiving cosmetic dental bonding

Direct bonding is a great way for patients to treat relatively minor cosmetic flaws (such as chips, stains or very small gaps) in record time. One of our doctors will apply quality composite resin to the tooth in question and sculpt it into place so that it appears lifelike and covers up the problematic area. This process only takes a single appointment, and the improvements can serve you well for several years.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

You should achieve gorgeous improvements after a few weeks of consistent use.

Gum Recontouring

Do you feel like your smile looks overly “gummy” or short? This is a common sign of excess gum tissue. Thankfully, our cosmetic dentists in Phoenix can reshape your natural gum line as needed to create a more pleasing and uniform appearance. Gum recontouring may also be necessary if a tooth is in need of restoration and more of its structure has to be exposed for the procedure to be successful.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cost of cosmetic dentistry in Phoenix

As you consider the cost of cosmetic dentistry in Phoenix, it is important to remember that it is a worthwhile investment. Although these services focus more on the aesthetics of your smile, they also help to improve your overall oral health. But the only way to know exactly how much you can expect to spend on your new smile is to schedule a consultation with a member of our team. This will allow us to formulate a plan that includes which service(s) will prove most beneficial as well as how much they will cost. When ready, our team will go over ways you can pay for treatment without emptying your bank account.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

At Devoted Family Dental, you can count on us to deliver a multitude of cosmetic dental treatments, some of which include:

  • Porcelain Veneers: These ultra-thin sheaths are custom-made by lab technicians to cover your smile imperfections. Versatile in hiding all types of flaws, they are designed to change the size, shape, and color of your teeth and can be placed in just two visits. If properly cared for, these semi-permanent restorations can last up to a decade but are much more expensive than other cosmetic solutions.
  • Metal-Free Dental Crowns: If you are treating only one or two decayed or damaged teeth, a metal-free dental crown may be the right choice for you. Although costly, your dental insurance is more likely to provide partial coverage because of its restorative nature. However, these restorations do require altering your natural teeth and only last 10-15 years.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: When minor flaws are plaguing your smile, you can turn to cosmetic dental bonding, which uses composite resin that is shaded to match your existing tooth enamel. Much less invasive and highly affordable, it is a popular treatment option that can be completed in just one visit. However, it only lasts several years before needing to be replaced.
  • Teeth Whitening: At-home teeth whitening kits are a great way to rid your smile of stains and discoloration. Although it is not permanent, it is a quick and easy way to brighten your appearance without undergoing invasive procedures.
  • Gum Recontouring: When the soft oral tissues of your smile are the main problem, gum recontouring is a great way to eliminate excess “gummy tissue” and create a more even and balanced appearance.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making

Cosmetic dentistry is considered to be one of the most popular forms of dental care available. Nowadays, people want to do more than just lose weight, change their hairstyle, and inject a bit of Botox here and there. They also want to look younger by transforming the look of their smile with the help of a cosmetic dentist in Phoenix.

While many of the services offered are designed to enhance appearances and conceal flaws, these treatments are also helpful in improving your oral health. When chips, cracks, and misshapen teeth are no longer an issue, the likelihood of developing tooth sensitivity, decay, and further damage decreases. Addressing gummy smiles with gum recontouring helps to lower the potential for gum disease. And metal-free dental crowns offer maximum protection against bad bacteria.

By choosing cosmetic dentistry, you will not only notice a positive change in your aesthetics but also your oral and overall health.

With CareCredit flexible financing, you can enroll in a low- or no-interest payment plan that promises no surprise fees! Instead of paying the full price upfront, you can spread out the cost of treatment over several months, making it more manageable to stay within your budget.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Cost of cosmetic dentistry in Phoenix

At Devoted Family Dental, our cosmetic dentist in Phoenix understands the excitement and nervousness that comes with dental treatment. No matter the type, patients typically feel eager about the idea of improving their smiles but often feel anxious about taking the first step. This is why our team is here to ease concerns, offer clarity, and ensure confidence. Below, you will find a list of common questions asked by our patients. We have included answers for you to review; however, if you do not see yours listed, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Cosmetic dentistry is known to be rather expensive. Why? Because it is not typically covered by dental insurance companies. These services are not “medically necessary,” so most insurers will require patients to find alternative ways to pay if they want to improve their smile aesthetics. However, enhancing your appearance does not have to result in emptying your bank account. There are financing options available to minimize out-of-pocket expenses and help you stay within your budget.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Change Your Life?

While the assumption is that cosmetic dentistry can only improve the look of your smile, the truth is that it does much more than that. By choosing to enhance your appearance by ridding your teeth of cracks, chips, stains, and more, you are committing to making better choices for the future of your smile. Instead of living with a hopeless attitude regarding your smile, you can be more proactive about keeping up with your brushing, flossing, and rinsing routine. Because the happier you are with the look of your smile, the more likely you will be to take better care of it.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Needing cosmetic dentistry and wanting it are two separate things. The only way to know for sure, though, is to schedule a consultation with a member of our dental team. Once we have a chance to examine your smile and make note of the problem areas, we can develop a treatment plan that works for you.

Addressing the chips, cracks, stains, misshapen teeth, and even spatial issues associated with your smile is advantageous, however, as you’ll be more aware of how you take care of your teeth. Leaving these problem areas untreated will only cause you to be more vulnerable to serious oral health issues such as dental decay, gum disease, and damage.

What is the Difference Between a Dentist and a Cosmetic Dentist?

The only difference between a dentist and a cosmetic dentist is the additional training needed to perform many of the most popular cosmetic services. Dentists of all types must have a DDS or DMD degree to become licensed. After graduation, if they choose to enter into a specialization (i.e., pediatrics, prosthodontics, orthodontics, periodontics, etc.), they certainly can. However, cosmetic dentistry is not a designed specialization that is recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). You can opt to pursue various training and courses that discuss cosmetic dentistry, allowing interested individuals to get the experience they need to provide patients with veneers, metal-free restorations, cosmetic bonding, teeth whitening, and more.
