The Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry
From A Prosthodontist
If you’re considering cosmetic dentistry in Mount Pleasant or North Mount Pleasant, Dr. Vinson offers masterful care and beautiful results. Choosing a prosthodontist for your cosmetic treatment has a number of benefits:
- Specialized training for optimal results – Prosthodontists must undergo at least three years of additional post-doctoral training that focuses on the functional and cosmetic aspects of smile restoration. Choosing a prosthodontist ensures that you receive treatment from an experienced, highly-trained specialist.
- Address cosmetic and functional issues simultaneously – If you have issues like chipped or damaged teeth, a prosthodontist can restore the natural function of your smile as well as your appearance. Dr. Vinson works tirelessly to create veneers, crowns, and implants that are indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
- No referrals required – We can handle almost any smile restoration case at our office, no matter how extensive your issues may be. Vinson is highly skilled when it comes to full-mouth reconstructions and cosmetic dentistry. This means fewer referrals, which saves our patients both time and money.
Improve your overall Oral Health
With Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is more than just aesthetic. Eliminating stains and imperfections in your smile will help encourage you to take better care of your mouth. Patients who have undergone cosmetic treatment are more likely to brush and floss properly because they take pride in their smiles. Oral bacteria and food particles collect between your teeth and gums, so eliminating gaps and other imperfections can eliminate “pockets” of plaque and tartar.
Restore Strength and Confidence with
Porcelain & CeramicVeneers
If you have discolored, misshapen, or chipped teeth, we offer veneers as a solution to restore your smile and your confidence. These thin shells are custom-made to give your smile a beautiful, natural look and Dr. Vinson will use the best material for your particular situation.
To be a good candidate for veneers, your teeth must be healthy and strong, with plenty of enamel. If your teeth are worn down from grinding or an issue like acid reflux, veneers may not be the best choice for you. The placement of veneers requires the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel, so you much have a sufficient amount to support the treatment. Candidates for veneers must also have relatively straight teeth with no major orthodontic issues. If you grind your teeth, you must be taking steps to address this issue, as it can displace or crack veneers. Visit our office or give us a call today to see if veneers are the right option for you.
Spruce Up Your Smile with
Teeth Whitening Treatments
Are you a smoker? Do you enjoy tannin-filled drinks like wine, coffee or tea? Is your smile dull or yellowing from years of wear and tear? As part of our commitment to beautiful, bright smiles, we offer in-office and take-home whitening services to all patients looking to amp up their smiles.
During your consultation, Dr. Vinson will determine what the best method of whitening will be for your specific needs so you can achieve the best and brightest result.
Correct Imperfections with
Bonding and Reshaping
Bonding and reshaping is a convenient, affordable way to improve the appearance of your teeth. Using tooth-colored composite resin, Dr. Vinson can build up the tooth, repairing chips and extra spacing between teeth. Reshaping is used to even out chips and imperfections, creating a more unified look across your teeth. These simple solutions can make all the difference!
Dental bonding is useful to correct minor chips, close gaps, and enhance small or misshapen teeth. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy and you do not have any major orthodontic issues, you are a good candidate for dental bonding. For more information, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Vinson.
Who Is a Candidate for
A good candidate for cosmetic treatments would be someone who is in good overall and oral health. We can’t move forward with cosmetic dental work if you have active oral health problems such as tooth decay or gum disease.
If you have healthy teeth and gums but have aesthetic issues such as minor damage, discoloration, or you just aren’t content with the shape or size of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry is the perfect solution for you.
You should also be willing to care for your restorations to help them last. This may mean reducing your consumption of staining foods and drinks, avoiding chewing crunchy or hard foods, and avoiding smoking. Cosmetic treatments may not be suitable for you if you have severe tooth sensitivity, gum recession, or extensive tooth damage.
How Much Does
Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?
As you could imagine, it’s difficult to say exactly how much you can expect to spend on cosmetic treatments because of the variable factors at play. The cost depends on how many issues with your smile you would like to address, how many treatments you require, the complexity of those treatments, and the materials being used.
Getting a simple treatment such as teeth whitening will be considerably cheaper than an entire smile makeover, which utilizes as many treatments as necessary to completely revamp your smile. That being said, even a single treatment could be costly.
Using dental implants to replace missing teeth can cost a few thousand dollars per implant. It’s important to remember that the cost is often representative of the quality that you can expect in the results.
While cosmetic treatments can be pricier than traditional dental procedures, you don’t want to skimp out on quality by trying to get the cheapest option possible. The price tag is representative of the quality of the facilities, technology, expertise, and training of your cosmetic dentist.
The best way to give you an estimate of the cost of your treatment would be to come in for a consultation. While most insurance plans will not cover cosmetic treatments, if you need dental crowns or implants for restorative and medical reasons, this may be partially covered by your insurance.
Contact your insurance provider to ask what they cover. If you don’t have insurance or your plan won’t cover any cosmetic dental procedures, you have other options. At Advanced Dentistry of Mount Pleasant, we offer financing options through CareCredit and Lending Club.
Can I Get More Than One
Absolutely! At your consultation, Dr. Vinson will discuss all of your concerns with your smile with you and then provide you with options to address these concerns. If you have multiple concerns, this may require multiple treatments.
We can construct a personalized plan for you that takes into account your specific smile goals. If you have extensive work you would like to be done, we recommend getting a smile makeover so we can create a personalized plan that encompasses a variety of treatments to achieve this.
