Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
Even patients who are ecstatic about transforming their smiles might be at least a little worried about the cost of cosmetic dentistry in Springfield, NJ. After all, dental insurance seldom covers purely elective procedures. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean the treatments you desire are out of reach. Here at Skyline Dental, our team will take the time to help you figure out the ideal treatments that will meet your goals. Then, we can explore your options for making cosmetic dentistry affordable, such as CareCredit financing and our in-house membership plan.
Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?
When people pursue cosmetic dentistry, they’re typically trying to improve one (or more) of three aspects of their teeth: color, alignment, and shape/size. Depending on which of these changes you’d like to make, your cosmetic dentist in Springfield can recommend the specific treatments that are right for you. Some of our most popular options include:
- Clear aligners – For patients with crooked or gapped teeth, clear aligners like Invisalign and ClearCorrect can make a huge difference in terms of both appearance and health. With that being said, clear aligners are on the higher end of the cost spectrum, and it may take a year or longer to reach your end results.
- Teeth whitening – One of the most affordable cosmetic options, our in-office Zoom! Teeth Whitening system can dissolve stubborn tooth stains in as little as a single one-hour visit.
- Veneers – Veneers might not be the cheapest way to transform your grin, but they’re incredibly versatile and long-lasting. Clear aligners and whitening can each only improve one aspect of your teeth, but veneers can make them appear straighter, whiter, and more aesthetically pleasing overall after just two appointments. Plus, with the right care, veneers may last for 15+ years.
- Botox / Juvéderm / dermal fillers – While these treatments technically don’t alter your teeth, they reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging that can take years off of your smile. The injections themselves are typically mid-range in terms of cost, but the results will need to be redone every few months.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be Well Worth the Investment
The price tags of various cosmetic dental treatments can seem intimidating at first; you might even reconsider fixing those flaws in your grin. In the long run, however, cosmetic dentistry can be an investment that pays major dividends.
If you’ve been feeling ashamed of your pearly whites, the confidence you’ll feel after cosmetic treatments can be truly priceless. Additionally, you’ll be perceived as more attractive, successful, and healthier. You’ll likely enjoy improvements in your social, romantic, and professional life; you could even end up getting a promotion! In that way, cosmetic dentistry quite literally pays for itself!
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
As we touched on earlier, dental treatments that are solely aesthetic are unlikely to be covered by insurance. Still, there are other options to make your smile makeover affordable when you visit Skyline Dental, such as:
- CareCredit – Whether or not you have dental insurance, we can help you apply for flexible financing through a third-party company called CareCredit. Qualified patients can pay for their treatment in monthly chunks, and these payment plans typically come with low (or even no) interest.
- Membership plan – Our in-house membership plan is a great alternative to traditional insurance. For a flat low fee per year, much of your routine care is fully covered, and you’ll receive a 20% discount on ALL of our treatments, including cosmetic ones.
The only way to know for sure how much your cosmetic dental care will cost is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Henkin. We look forward to seeing you and helping you smile!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
You can have a confident, beautiful smile with the help of your cosmetic dentist in Springfield. Although you'd love to achieve the smile of your dreams, cosmetic dentistry is a big investment. Don't worry, we will explain everything during your consultation. In the meantime, here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions to ease your concerns.
Which cosmetic procedure is right for me?
No two mouths or situations are identical. Therefore, there's no way to determine which procedure is right for you without first examining your mouth. Based on your needs and goals, you may be a candidate for:
- Veneers: Correct several issues using one minimally invasive procedure.
- Metal-Free Restorations: Benefit from natural-looking fillings and crowns.
- Dental Bonding: Fix minor aesthetic issues quickly using composite resin.
- Smile Makeover: Completely transform your teeth using personalized cosmetic procedures.
Your cosmetic dentist will review all your options to find the perfect solution for your smile.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
Cosmetic dentistry is associated with a hefty price tag, but it's more affordable than you might realize. There are more options than ever to correct several aesthetic concerns, which means there is a treatment to fit your budget. Not to mention, our office provides a variety of payment methods to keep a picture-perfect smile affordable, like using your dental insurance or third-party financing.
How long does cosmetic dentistry last?
Each procedure had a different lifespan. Some results last for a few months, while others can enjoy an improvement for several years. We will explain exactly how long you can expect your new smile to last during your consultation. Various factors will affect the longevity of your results, like your oral health and lifestyle. You can get the most from your investment with a solid home oral hygiene routine and regular care from your dentist. It's best to avoid anything that may damage your smile, like smoking, using your teeth as tools, or chewing on inedible objects.
Can I use my dental insurance for cosmetic dentistry?
It's rare for dental insurance to cover elective procedures, but there are certain exceptions. Many cosmetic services also offer restorative benefits. Therefore, if a treatment is medically necessary, you can use your coverage to offset the cost. After reaching your deductible, your benefits can pay 50% to 80% of the cost of common restorative procedures, like dental bonding or crowns. A member of our team will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize your coverage to lower your out-of-pocket expenses.
Why is dental health important for elective procedures?
Although you may be concerned about aesthetic flaws, your cosmetic dentist's first priority is your dental health. Your teeth and gums must be healthy before undergoing any elective treatments because they can aggravate untreated issues. In some cases, your dentist can resolve them and improve the appearance of your smile simultaneously. While there may be a couple of extra steps in your plan, healthy teeth and gums are vital to the long-term success of your new smile.
