Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular forms of dentistry out there, and Dr. Golparvar wants his patients to know that getting the smile of your dreams is far from impossible. Whether you’re looking for a simple teeth whitening session or a complete smile makeover, we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Call our dental office to set up an appointment today to discuss cosmetic dentistry in Manchester, NH!
Whether you have cracks and chips in your smile, a series of stains that simply won’t go away, or small gaps in between your teeth, veneers can hide nearly all of your imperfections quickly and seamlessly. Each veneer is personalized with shape, size and color in mind, so you can smile with confidence. Once we’ve made slight modifications to your enamel, we’ll ensure that they sit flush and look completely natural after placement.
While dental crowns are typically used for saving fractured teeth, they are also perfect for teeth that are heavily stained, chipped, or misshapen in any way! We are happy to offer all-ceramic crowns to cover imperfections, ensuring they blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Thanks to their durability, you don’t have to sacrifice the integrity of your restorations just to keep your smile looking natural (and metal-free!)
In some cases, you may find that you only have minor imperfections you’d like to address, such as small chips and cracks that don’t necessarily require porcelain veneers or crowns to resolve. With cosmetic bonding, a small amount of tooth-colored composite resin bonded and sealed using a curing light is the perfect way to achieve the smile you’re looking for! Treatment typically takes just one appointment to complete and can even last up to 10 years!Learn More
If your smile has become dull or discolored over the years, a few rounds of teeth whitening can do wonders for your appearance! Our in-practice whitening treatment can make your smile multiple shades brighter in just one hour! Alternatively, if you’d prefer to whiten your teeth on the go (especially If scheduling dental visits is difficult), take-home whitening kits allow you to do so over a two-week period. We’ll go over both options in greater detail so you can make an informed decision on your treatment.
At Webster Dental Associates of Manchester, we don’t believe in providing cookie-cutter care. In fact, we customize treatment to create your own unique smile. Consequently, it is pretty much impossible to provide even a rough estimate for procedures before we’ve had the opportunity to meet with you in a consultation. After we examine and evaluate you, we can put together a personalized treatment plan and let you know the amount you would be expected to pay.Learn More
While we can’t give you estimates without looking at the current state of your smile, you may wonder how much cosmetic treatments cost:
Perhaps you’re still deciding whether you want to correct flaws in your teeth. Maybe you wonder whether it’s worth the time, effort, and money just to change your appearance. The truth is that changes we can make to your smile can greatly improve your quality of life. Not only can you have more confidence in yourself, but you can also actually give your mood a boost by smiling more often. Plus, studies show that seeing a genuine smiling face can improve others’ moods too.
If you have dental insurance, you may be thinking that you can simply use it to lower your out-of-pocket costs. Unfortunately, cosmetic work is considered elective and is not generally covered by dental insurance. However, we have several ways of making your treatment fit within your budget. First, for those who are interested in a smile makeover, you can take advantage of our free consultation! We can also help you apply for financing through CareCredit or Lending Point. These companies break up the total cost into smaller monthly payments, making it easier to afford treatment.
When your smile has chips, cracks, gaps, stains, or other imperfections, you may find it more difficult to show it off and even express yourself to the fullest. Thankfully, the team at Webster Dental Associates of Manchester is happy to answer any questions you may have about cosmetic dentistry or enhancing your smile. We encourage you to see if your question is listed below ahead of your smile consultation. We’re always happy to inform you to the fullest extent so you can feel confident before making any final decisions on your future makeover!Learn More
Cosmetic dentistry is often considered to be an expensive service, but this is not always the case. One of the reasons people assume this is because cosmetic dentistry is almost never covered by dental insurance. That means it’s common for people to pay out of pocket for their enhancements. If you’re concerned about cost, you’ll need to confirm if investing in treatments like whitening, bonding, veneers and others are worth the benefits. Our patients note following their cosmetic treatment they feel more confident, experience boosted self-esteem, and maintain a higher quality of life. Even better job opportunities can start to appear, especially in careers that rely on appearances.
When being taken care of by a trained professional, cosmetic dentistry is absolutely safe. Just keep in mind that not all treatments are for every patient. For that reason, Dr. Golparvar will perform a detailed exam of your smile in order to better understand your concerns and provide a recommendation from there. For example, if you have any underlying oral health risks (i.e. tooth decay, gum disease) then you will need to have these addressed before any cosmetic treatment can be performed. We’ll never use veneers to cover decayed teeth, for example, as this can make treatment for the decaying tooth far more difficult.
We can’t speak much for over-the-counter whitening products, but we can say that most of them are made from cheap ingredients that are likely ineffective for your needs and can even damage teeth. Professional products are more reliable, safe, and more likely to give you the results you want.
The lifespan of your cosmetic treatment will vary depending on the treatment and your at-home oral habits. For example, quick, easy, and affordable teeth whitening and direct bonding tend to not last as long, while veneers can last between 10 and 15 years. Invisalign can last for life when wearing your retainer as required. The general rule of thumb to keep in mind is the better you take care of your smile, the longer your results should last.
Not 100% sure if cosmetic dentistry is right for you? We’re happy to sit down with you for a complimentary smile makeover consultation if you’d like! If you have stained or discolored teeth, teeth whitening or bonding can likely meet your needs. Veneers and metal-free restorations can easily cover cosmetic chips and cracks. If you want to achieve a more youthful appearance in general, cosmetic dentistry can take decades off your smile with the right treatment plan.
