Every day, our dentists are enhancing the smiles and lives of people just like you through advanced cosmetic dentistry. In a society like ours where the way your smile looks can make a tremendous difference, having a team you can trust to give you the dazzling teeth of your dreams is important. Our entire team of cosmetic dentists from Phoenix offer complete quality cosmetic options to create beautiful, bright smiles you’ll be proud of.
Using one or more of these approaches, our Phoenix dentists will create a personalized plan to beautify your teeth and boost your confidence.
Your makeover will begin with a thorough oral exam and consultation. During your exam, your cosmetic dentist will completely assess your needs and determine which service will help you the best. Then we'll explain your options and discuss the benefits of your proposed treatment. That will give you a chance to ask any questions you might have. Smile makeovers often require permanent changes to your smile. That is why our Phoenix cosmetic dentists want you to feel completely comfortable with your proposed plan before your treatment begins.
Many cosmetic dental services take two or more appointments to complete. However, in office teeth whitening with Zoom! only needs a single appointment to whiten teeth by as many as eight shades. Cosmetic bonding also takes just one appointment to complete. How long your treatment will take will depend on the services you're having done. During your consultation, your cosmetic dentist can give you an estimate for how long your total treatment will take so you can plan your schedule accordingly.
At Smile Fitness Dental Center, we bring out the best in smiles! If you've struggled with self-confidence in the past because of how your teeth look, don't let yourself feel burdened any longer. Through the cosmetic dentistry services available at Smile Fitness Dental Center in Phoenix, you can experience a transformation that will influence how you think about yourself as well how others perceive you. Getting started begins with calling our office and scheduling that very first visit. It also begins with learning more about each of our services below:
In home decor, a veneer is an outer coating that creates an improved appearance. In dentistry, porcelain veneers do just that for the smile! Whether you have stains, chips, gaps or cracks that make your smile look less than perfect, porcelain veneers can transform flawed teeth into dream smiles.
If a brighter smile is on your wish list, we invite you to schedule a teeth whitening consultation. We’ll walk you through all of your teeth whitening options. No treatment plan is right for everyone – that’s why we personalize your teeth whitening plan to meet your unique whitening needs with customized levels of whitening agent, application methods and wear times.
If you’d like a budget friendly alternative to porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding may be for you. This treatment uses tooth colored composite resin (the same material that’s utilized in fillings) to repair and conceal cosmetic flaws. With minimal prep and little to no discomfort during treatment, cosmetic bonding can completely transform your smile.
Every smile is different and your cosmetic dentistry plan at Smile Fitness Dental Center will be too. Our dentists and team will customize a treatment plan that includes any number of cosmetic, restorative and orthodontic services to deliver the smile of your dreams within your budget and timeline. These smile makeover plans provide patients with predictable and beautiful results.
For minor cavities, chips and cracks, tooth colored fillings provide a simple, dental restoration. With minimal prep, we can completely replace lost tooth structure, leaving patients with flawless smiles. This natural looking restorative process is completed in just one short, comfortable appointment. With proper care, composite resin tooth colored fillings will last as long or longer than traditional amalgams.
While restorative services like crowns and bridges are traditionally considered necessary to repair damage, we can also use high quality, metal free restorations to enhance the appearance of smiles. At Smile Fitness Dental Center, we offer all ceramic dental crowns and other restorations as a cosmetic treatment option for those patients who want to ensure the flawless look and feel of their repaired smile. Additionally, metal free restorations are the best material for patients who suffer from metal allergies or sensitivities. Patients who choose metal free restorations should plan to visit our team at least two times. During the initial appointment, your tooth or teeth are prepared and bite impressions taken. We’ll design your restoration and send our plan and the impressions to the lab. To protect your prepared teeth, we place a temporary crown. Once we’ve received your natural looking and all ceramic crown, you’ll need to return to replace the temporary with a custom veneer.
After reading about the services listed above, you may be interested in using cosmetic dentistry to create the beautiful smile that you’ve always pictured for yourself. But before you agree to any cosmetic procedures, you should always take the time to make sure that you fully understand them first. Here are some answers to a few of the questions we often hear from patients who are interested in cosmetic dentistry. You can always call us directly if you can’t find the information you need on this page.
Like with any other kind of dental treatment, we’ll put your comfort first while we’re enhancing the appearance of your teeth. Most cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, are non-invasive and involve little to no pain. However, there are certain treatments that might call for a local anesthetic; for example, veneers require us to take a bit of enamel off your tooth, so it will be necessary to numb your mouth beforehand.
Patients who are nervous about having cosmetic dental work done may want to consider dental sedation. Not only can it reduce your body’s ability to register pain, but it can make it easier to stay relaxed during your appointment.
Many people who have had cosmetic dental work done in the past will happily tell you that yes, cosmetic dentistry is indeed worth it in the long run. Having a dazzling smile can improve the way other people see you, and you’re likely to feel much more confident when you’re happy with the way that you look. With the right personalized cosmetic treatment, you may start to notice a significant improvement in various aspects of your daily life, including your career and your personal relationships.
Since there are so many different kinds of cosmetic treatments, there are a lot of variables that can affect the longevity of your new smile. Some procedures like teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding are relatively simple to perform but only last for a few years, meaning they may require the occasional touchup. On the other hand, more extensive treatments like veneers and dental crowns can last 10 years or longer in many cases. Of course, your ability to take proper care of your oral health plays a major role in determining how long the results of your cosmetic treatment last.
Most of the time, dental insurance does not pay for cosmetic treatments, as the majority of providers don’t offer coverage for elective services. That said, if a cosmetic procedure can benefit your oral health in some way, your insurance company might make an exception. As an example, sometimes a veneer can be used to protect a damaged tooth, in which case some insurance plans might be willing to offer partial coverage. It’s always worth taking the time to discuss your specific plan with our team to see if there are any benefits you can take advantage of.
