Cosmetic Dentist Creating Beautiful Longview Smiles

Many of our patients think that unless they were born with flawless teeth, a beautiful, confident smile is out of their reach. At Longview Dental Center, we have a variety of cosmetic dentistry services that transform even the most flawed teeth to picture-perfect smiles. From basic teeth whitening services to porcelain veneers and advanced ceramic restorations, we’ll create a personalized cosmetic dentistry plan to help you achieve all of your smile goals. Contact our team to find out more or schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation today.

Porcelain Veneers

Longview Cosmetic Dentist woman smiling at dentistVeneers use thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain to conceal any number of chips, cracks, gaps, and stains. They are attached to the front facing surfaces of teeth creating a flawless smile with one simple procedure. Completed in two appointments, veneers are a great solution for patients who want to correct more advanced cosmetic flaws. During the first appointment, we prepare teeth, capture impressions, and place a temporary. When we receive the custom restoration from our lab, you’ll return to exchange your temporary for a smile transforming porcelain veneer.

Metal-Free Restorations

However, metal-free restorations look so much like natural tooth structures, we can use them to repair a damaged or decayed tooth or improve the appearance of a patient’s smile. Crafted from high quality ceramic, metal-free restorations look, feel, and function just like healthy teeth. Patients who have metal allergies or sensitivities are also safely and effectively treated with these high quality materials.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits

We use custom crafted application trays to keep whitening gel in place and keep out saliva that can neutralize the whitener. Each patient receives a custom dose of whitener, and we personalize wear times to fit even the busiest schedules.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Contrary to what you might have heard, you don't have to be rich to benefit from cosmetic dentistry. There are more treatment options than ever before, which means there is a solution to fit your budget. Many factors affect the cost of cosmetic dentistry, but Dr. George R. Stoddard strives to keep a stunning smile within everyone's budget.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

No two mouths or situations are identical, so there isn't a cookie-cutter method to create a beautiful smile. Dr. Stoddard will examine your mouth and learn more about your preferences to determine which procedures are right for you, like:

  • Porcelain Veneers: A veneer improves the shape, size, and color of a tooth. Bonding veneers to the front surfaces of teeth can fix many issues at once, like stains, chips, and gaps. The minimally invasive procedure provides results that can last for a decade or longer.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: Crowns and bridges can be made from all-ceramic materials to look like natural teeth. They are durable and will blend in with your smile.
  • At-Home Teeth Whitening: Your teeth can get up to 8 shades whiter using a professional whitening kit. You'll enjoy in-office results from the comfort of your home.

Dr. Stoddard will ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before any elective services. It's not uncommon to require a little prep work, like a dental cleaning, filling, or gum disease treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Your self-esteem can suffer the effects of an unattractive smile. You can boost your confidence and quality of life by investing in a picture-perfect smile. You'll also enhance your professional image. A person with an attractive smile is viewed as young, confident, and successful, which are important attributes in any profession. Cosmetic dentistry may also reduce your overall dental expenses. Fixing certain issues can improve your oral health, so you're less likely to need costly treatments later.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Do you still have questions about getting cosmetic dental services? The best way to learn more is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stoddard. Below, we’ve also answered some common questions that we receive from our patients for your convenience.

What are the most common cosmetic procedures that patients receive?

At Longview Dental Center, we offer a variety of cosmetic procedures. Our patients typically find out which one is right for them by scheduling a consultation first. During this appointment, our team is able to walk you through what treatments would best fit your needs and discuss the benefits of each. Our most common procedures that patients receive are typically teeth whitening and metal-free restorations.

Will my dental insurance cover cosmetic dental treatment?

Because each cosmetic treatment is individually planned to fit the unique patient’s needs, the cost can vary. However, it’s typical that dental insurance doesn’t cover any services that aren’t deemed as necessary to either restore or maintain good oral health. The best way to learn is to contact your provider directly. If you need help, our team will be more than happy to assist. We also offer additional financing that we can discuss with you as well.

Can teens benefit from cosmetic dentistry?

Teens can benefit from certain cosmetic dental procedures that both restore oral health and provide a more aesthetically pleasing smile appearance. These services include metal-free restorations and tooth-colored fillings. The best way to learn whether your teen can benefit from these is to schedule a consultation.

How long do cosmetic procedures take?

Because each cosmetic procedure is uniquely planned for each patient, there’s no singular timeline. Depending on your budget and what treatment you’d like, it could take one hour-long appointment or several visits over the course of multiple months. For example, take-home teeth whitening is a fast and simple treatment, but porcelain veneers are more complex and can take significantly longer, especially since they’re customized to fix a variety of cosmetic imperfections.

If you’d like to learn more about your cosmetic treatment timeline or have any questions about certain procedures, you can always contact our office. Our friendly dental staff will be more than happy to assist you in any way that we can.
