Why Choose Transcendent Smiles for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

With porcelain veneers, we can eliminate any number of smile imperfections simultaneously, including:

They are extremely thin ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front of the teeth, and they can give you everything from a minor touch-up to a complete makeover in just 2-3 appointments. They are custom-made for each patient, so the end result is entirely up to you.

Metal-Free Restorations

The teeth that show when you smile aren’t just important to your dental health, but your overall appearance as well, which is why we will take extra special care of them should they ever suffer decay or damage. With metal-free, all-porcelain restorations, we can easily turn the clock back on your smile and make it seem like nothing ever happened to it. Dental porcelain is so lifelike that even we sometimes have trouble distinguishing it from real enamel, so we know you will, too!

With Invisalign, you can finally get a perfectly straight smile without having to wear noticeable metal braces for years at a time. It uses a series of custom-made, crystal-clear plastic aligners that can gradually shift the teeth in the most comfortable and discreet way possible. Not only are the trays practically invisible, but they’re also removable, meaning you can conveniently take them out whenever it’s time to eat or brush your teeth.

Direct Bonding

It’s amazing how just one small chip, stain, crack, or gap can ruin an entire smile, right? With direct bonding, however, we can quickly take care of these minor flaws in just one short appointment. Your dentist will apply a naturally-colored composite resin to your tooth to build up any damaged/missing enamel, and then they will literally sculpt it to perfection.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Rather than using some underwhelming over-the-counter whitening method, we can provide you with your own custom-made take-home kit that is guaranteed to deliver dramatic results. With our kit, you’ll be able to eliminate stains caused by coffee, wine, tobacco, aging, and even genetics with just two weeks of daily use. Now, you can make your smile up to 8 shades whiter while you simply relax at home.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

It’s normal to worry about the cost of cosmetic dentistry at first (at least in most cases) since it’s rare that your treatment will be covered by dental insurance. However, our team will gladly walk you through the process of paying for your care without breaking the bank along the way. Different services designed to address different needs all have their own unique costs. Just remember, sometimes achieving the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of can be truly priceless.

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

People typically try to fix multiple imperfections at a time. In many cases, they want to whiten teeth, make them straighter, or change their shape/size. Dr. Tran will gladly go over your options with you one-on-one and include the following:

  • Veneers – This treatment is more expensive on average than any other cosmetic service, but it’s likely you won’t need to complete other treatments to achieve the results you want because of their versatility. They can also last a decade and longer with proper at-home care.
  • Invisalign – It can make a big difference if you have gaps, rotated and crooked teeth, and an uneven bite. Keep in mind it is a larger time and financial investment compared to other options. With that said, the results can last for life when you wear your retainer!
  • Direct Bonding – When you want to make small changes to your teeth, including removal of stains, shape of enamel, and hiding gaps, direct bonding offers a fast and affordable solution.
  • Teeth Whitening – Designed to lift stains from enamel and be far more effective than store-bought solutions. Not only is whitening fast to complete, but it’s relatively affordable in most budgets.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Worth It?

Cosmetic dentistry can feel like a large commitment in terms of costs and changes for your smile, but it’s best to think of it as an investment as well. When you have a smile you enjoy showing off to friends, family, coworkers, business clients, and that special someone you want to impress, it can truly pay dividends in the long-term. You just may be surprised by how much of a boost your confidence and self-esteem experience following your cosmetic treatment!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Purely esthetic dental care is rarely covered by any dental insurance plan, so you’ll want to think about other options if paying out-of-pocket becomes too difficult. Thankfully, there are a few ways to make your dentistry more affordable.

One option many patients turn to is third-party financing through CareCredit. This option allows you to pay for dental treatments in smaller chunks over a longer span of time. Depending on how short or long your payment plan lasts, you could even pay virtually no interest for your cosmetic makeover!

If you’d like to learn more about your options to pay for dental services, give our office a call so our team can speak with you directly. We look forward to helping you transform your smile so you can feel confident about your appearance for many years to come!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Are you ready for cosmetic dentistry in Millersville to make your dream smile come true? With so many services to choose from, it’s natural to have a few questions. While we’ll be happy to give you all the information you’re looking for at your consultation, we invite you to read the following common questions we typically get about cosmetic dentistry. As always, don’t hesitate to give us a call to learn more!

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

Whether you have one minor cosmetic dental flaw or wish you could completely redesign your smile, most everyone can benefit from cosmetic dentistry! However, before we begin to improve your smile, we need to make sure your oral health is on track. Issues like tooth decay and gum disease can make some treatments uncomfortable or less successful, so we’ll create a plan that addresses these problems first before moving on to improving your appearance.

Does teeth whitening work for everyone?

A professional at-home teeth whitening kit from your Millersville dentist may seem very similar to products you can buy at the store, but they’re much more effective. Custom-made trays and professional-grade whitening agents make for a safe and reliable way to remove years of tough stains from your smile. However, there are some types of discoloration that can’t be lifted by any type of whitening treatment. In these cases, we may recommend services like dental bonding or porcelain veneers to help you achieve the sparkling smile you deserve.

Should I replace my silver fillings?

In the past, the only way to repair cavities was with metal (amalgam) fillings. While durable, these shiny silver blobs in your teeth are highly noticeable and can even damage your enamel over time. Thankfully, metal fillings aren’t your only option anymore! At Transcendent Smiles, we use tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin to treat tooth decay. This material adheres much better to natural tooth structure and can be shaded to match the rest of your smile, allowing us to restore the function and appearance of your pearly whites. We’ve replaced countless metal fillings, so call us today to see if tooth-colored fillings are right for you.

Am I too old for braces?

Do you want straighter teeth, but hate the idea of having a mouth full of awkward metal wires and braces? Many adults bear with a crooked smile simply because traditional metal braces would get in the way of their busy or professional lifestyle. If this sounds familiar, you may be a candidate for Invisalign clear braces! These removable aligners have helped millions of adults get a straighter, healthier smile without sacrificing their appearance in the meantime. They’re easy to use and practically invisible when worn, so you can confidently show off your smile during a job interview, while on a first date, when giving a work presentation, or simply while hanging out with friends and family all throughout your treatment!

The dazzling, flawless teeth you’ve always dreamed of are within reach! Schedule your consultation today and start your journey towards a beautiful smile.
