How Do I Choose A Cosmetic Dentist?
With any procedure comes careful consideration, and before you leap into having porcelain veneers placed, you want to make sure the person placing them is skilled and qualified to do so, right? Unfortunately, many dentists promise high-quality results, but their experience and background do not include a lot of cosmetic dentistry. Just as you would with any other type of procedure, it’s best to ask questions, do your research, and make sure you’re choosing the right cosmetic dentist in San Antonio. Check their experience, ask for before and after photos, and even discuss current technology and sedation options that are available.
Do you have more than one problem with your smile? Maybe your teeth are stained, but they’re also chipped? After a thorough evaluation of your smile, we will work to combine several cosmetic treatments to perform a full smile makeover. Not all hope is lost just because there are multiple problems with your smile. Our team of dedicated professionals can create a personalized treatment plan to ensure the procedures you’ll need will give you the results you desire.

If stains and discoloration have you upset with the look of your smile, teeth whitening can make it possible to see white again! Unlike over-the-counter products that offer big promises but result in disappointment, professional teeth whitening is a better investment of your time and money. Whether you’re looking to whiten your smile in-office or at home, we can brighten your teeth by 6 to 10 shades (in-office) or two weeks (at-home). The choice is yours! No matter what you decide, you’ll be guaranteed beautiful results every time.

Porcelain veneers are a popular treatment option among Hollywood’s elite, but they’re also a great solution for anyone looking to cover various cosmetic flaws, some of which include:
- Minor gaps
- Minor misalignments
These thin ceramic coverings serve as masks, hiding your cosmetic flaws and giving the appearance of a fully transformed smile. Porcelain veneers, with proper care and maintenance, are designed to last multiple decades.
Lumineers are very similar to porcelain veneers, in that the teeth are enhanced by bonding thin coverings to them. The main difference is that Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers. This means they can be applied to the teeth without reshaping them. With veneers, a small amount of enamel has to be removed to ensure they lay flat. Lumineers are a less invasive treatment, because the underlying teeth remain untouched, so they can be easily taken off in the future.
Direct bonding is a fast and easy procedure that involves applying a small amount of composite resin to an imperfect tooth. It allows your dentist to literally sculpt enamel to perfection and mask a small chip, stain, or gap. From beginning to end, the entire process only takes about an hour and is completely painless. Once the resin has been shaped, hardened, and polished, that’s it, and the beautiful results can be trusted to last for a decade or more.

Invisalign was designed specifically for image-conscious adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth without having to wear metal braces. Instead, a series of clear plastic aligner trays gently shift the teeth while allowing a patient to maintain their day-to-day appearance. And, unlike braces, Invisalign is removable, so a patient can eat whatever they like and brush their teeth like normal throughout treatment. In as little as 12-18 months, it can give someone a perfectly aligned smile!
Botox & Juvederm
One of the main issues that prevents people from smiling has nothing to do with their teeth, but rather their facial skin. Smiling causes any fine lines or wrinkles to become more prominent, which can make someone appear constantly tired or older than they really are. But, with Botox or Juvederm, our partner plastic surgeon, Dr. Homas, can give someone smooth, even, and supple skin using just a few painless injections. These treatments can remove wrinkles from the forehead and the areas around the eyes, nose, lips, and chin in as little as 10 minutes!

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
It’s normal to have some concerns about the cost of cosmetic dentistry. After all, most dental insurance plans don’t include any coverage for cosmetic services. But there’s no need to worry; our team will always be upfront about how much you can expect your treatment to cost, and they can help you figure out the best way to fit it into your budget. Remember: you can’t put a price on the confidence that a dazzling smile can bring.
Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?
Some people might want a whiter smile while others have concerns about uneven or differently shaped teeth. Depending on your needs, you might consider the following options:
- Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is usually in the mid-range of cost compared to other cosmetic treatments. It’s a reliable and relatively quick way to brighten your discolored grin; however, it can’t improve the shape or position of your teeth, so you’ll need to consider other options if you want to make those types of corrections.
- Veneers: The cost of veneers depends on how many teeth need to be covered. They can potentially have a higher price than other options, but they also give you an efficient way to make multiple corrections all at once.
- Invisalign: If you have significantly misaligned teeth, Invisalign is often a good choice for correcting them. It should be noted that the treatment does tend to be higher on the list in terms of cost, and it can take several months to get the desired results.
- Smile Makeover: A smile makeover is a combination of several cosmetic services, so naturally it tends to be more costly than individual treatments. That said, it’s also often the best option for making comprehensive improvements to your smile.
Why Cosmetic Dentistry is Worth the Investment
When you have a cosmetic dental procedure done, you are investing in a smile that will pay for itself in various ways as time goes on. Getting rid of the flaws that have been bothering you can give you a huge self-esteem boost, and it can make you feel more confident about showing off your grin in public. As a result, you may start to see more success in your social, professional, and personal life.
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
Any dental treatment that’s performed purely for cosmetic purposes most likely won’t be covered by your dental insurance plan. That said, our office does offer various options that can make paying for cosmetic treatment easier. For example, we can help you apply for a CareCredit financing plan, which will let you break up the cost of your treatment into budget-friendly installments. We’re also currently running a special offer for patients who want to straighten their smiles with Invisalign. Let our team know about your financial concerns; we can help you figure out the best way to pay for your brighter grin.
