Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental service that enhances the appearance of a patient’s smile.

Some services are purely for aesthetic reasons, like professional teeth whitening and veneers. In other cases, patients may need to restore one or more teeth. The restorative treatment, such as a dental crown or bridge, serves to repair their teeth both in terms of appearance and functionality.

We Prioritize Your Oral Health

When patients are interested in cosmetic dental services, one of the first things that we review is the current condition of their oral health.

If a patient needs periodontal therapy or a significant amount of restorative dental work done, we may recommend postponing certain cosmetic treatments until their smile is in a healthier state. If a patient is undergoing a full-mouth restoration, we will want to focus on treating any active infections, removing any tooth decay, and restoring gum health. Once this is complete, however, we are happy to work with the patient to determine their cosmetic smile goals and help them achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that they enjoy showing off!

We Offer Affordable Payment Options

In addition to evaluating the health of a patient’s smile, we work with patients to design a budget-friendly treatment plan. While many insurance plans do not cover purely cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, patients who need one or more crowns or bridges can often use their dental benefits to help cover the cost of their care. Bridge Dental Care also accepts CareCredit® payment plans, which divide the cost of healthcare services (including cosmetic treatments!) into manageable monthly payments. This can make dental treatments more affordable and accessible for patients!
