When multiple smile imperfections keep you from feeling confident in your appearance, veneers can be the ideal solution to help build up your self-esteem. These thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain fit over the front surfaces of your teeth and conceal any chips, stains or minor gaps in your teeth. Customized, based on the specifications of your smile, they fit snugly over the front surfaces of your teeth, completely transforming your smile.

Using color-matched composite resin, we can easily hide minor imperfections that make you feel uneasy about your appearance. By applying it directly to the front surface of your tooth, we can shape and sculpt it into place to conceal the flaw. Within one appointment, your tooth will look brand-new, and your results can last years.

Have you been wanting a straight set of teeth but haven’t been willing to commit to uncomfortable and noticeable traditional braces? There is an alternative– Invisalign. These clear aligners are made from SmartTrack technology that ensures a comfortable fit and predictable results. When worn 20-22 hours each day for 1-2 weeks at a time, you can expect your new, perfectly aligned smile to develop in less time than it would take with traditional braces.

When fine lines and wrinkles cause you to appear older than you are, you may desire a solution that can help you turn back the clock on aging. Our skilled team of professionals can treat these areas with great care using FDA-approved BOTOX. Not only do they minimize fine lines, but they also create a subtle and natural look that helps you to feel beautiful and look years younger.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cost of cosmetic dentistry in Lancaster

The cost of cosmetic dentistry is likely to be one of the leading factors in your decision to move forward with treatment or not. Most people assume these services are financially out of reach, but that’s not true. While they are not typically covered by dental insurance, there are other ways to pay for care that don’t require you to forfeit your savings. Our team is here to help you through the financial process so that you can walk away with the smile of your dreams.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

If you’re basing your decision on which cosmetic dental service is most affordable, you may not necessarily be opting for the one that is right for you. However, to help you better understand the kind of treatments that exist, view the list below:

  • Veneers: These are thin, customizable coverings that fit over the front surfaces of teeth and hide imperfections of all types. Placed in just two appointments, they require the removal of a small bit of enamel but can last 10-15 years. Veneers are one of the costlier cosmetic options available.
  • Metal-Free Dental Restorations: When fixing a damaged or decayed tooth, we can place a metal-free restoration. Instead of regular amalgam or metal, we can opt for natural materials that blend in with your smile. However, the more you prefer, the higher the price.
  • Dental Bonding: Using composite resin that is matched to your natural tooth color, we can easily apply it to the enamel to cover minor flaws. Requiring only one visit and lasting several years, this is a highly affordable option when needing to conceal small chips or stains.
  • Teeth Whitening: To rid your smile of stains and discoloration, we can use professional teeth whitening. Whether it is in-house or take-home kits, the process will have you seeing a brighter smile in less time, and it’s one of the most popular and cost-friendly services offered.
  • Invisalign: When looking to straighten your teeth because of oral health issues, your insurance may help cover the cost; however, if you want Invisalign to align your smile solely for aesthetic purposes, you could be required to pay a significantly higher bill.
  • Botox: Removing fine lines and wrinkles is more affordable when choosing Botox as opposed to undergoing a facelift.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

When you lack the confidence needed to meet with family and friends or pursue greater opportunities at work, you miss out on many of the things life has to offer. However, with cosmetic dentistry, you can change all of that.

No matter which type of treatment you and our team at Dentistry for Life decide on, the results you’ll see will be priceless. Apart from the physical improvement of your smile, the changes will positively impact your mental well-being as well as your emotional health and wellness.

In turn, the people you’re around regularly will notice a dramatic difference in how you approach life.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

At Dentistry for Life, we understand that you rely on your dental insurance to help cut some of the expenses associated with dental care. Unfortunately, when it comes to cosmetic treatment, you’re unlikely to receive financial help from your provider.

The good news, though, is that we offer flexible financing through CareCredit. By enrolling in one of their low- or no-interest plans, you can choose the one that works with your budget while also avoiding surprise fees along the way. Also, the payment plan you select will make it easier to pay off your treatment over time, so there is no high upfront cost coming out of your pocket.
