- Take-Home Whitening Solutions Available
- Natural-Looking Zirconia for Custom-Made Restorations

Out of all the cosmetic solutions to pick from, no treatment is as comprehensive as porcelain veneers. Not only can they effectively hide permanent discoloration, chips, cracks, and gaps in your smile, but they even reflect light in the same way as natural tooth enamel. By making small adjustments to your existing teeth and allowing two weeks for fabrication, your smile can be fully transformed! With proper care, you can expect your veneers to last at least 10 years.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
Part of providing effective cosmetic dentistry is never settling for materials that look anything less than stellar. At Wylie Family Dentistry, we use materials that blend in with your existing teeth in order to make your cosmetic additions look as natural as possible. Whether that’s creating the right shade for cosmetic bonding material or creating a veneer or crown that looks natural next to healthy teeth, our dental office guarantees that you’ll be satisfied. Without the right materials, we wouldn’t be able to create your dream smile!
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Much like tooth-colored fillings, cosmetic bonding uses composite resin to restore damaged or discolored teeth. This mixture made from glass and plastic is designed to hide minor chips and cracks that may be present in your teeth, but do not pose any threat to your oral health. Once he’s examined your smile, Dr. Morton will carefully apply the bonding material to your tooth, shape it, then use a curing light to harden the material instantly.
For many, a brighter smile is really all they need to feel more confident throughout their day. With take-home whitening solutions like Polar White®, the process of whitening teeth has never been easier or more convenient. After receiving your whitening trays, simply fill them with the bleaching gel provided by our dental office and wear them for about 20-30 minutes a day over the next two weeks. Soon, you’ll have a smile that is several shades whiter. Plus, you won’t have to visit the dentist for a cosmetic touch-up!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
There are multiple ways to make the smile of your dreams a reality; we want to make sure that you fully understand your treatment options and what to expect from them. When you visit our office for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, we will encourage you to ask any questions that might be on your mind. If you want to get a head start, you can check the FAQs below for some helpful information about our smile-enhancing services.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
The answer to this question partially depends on what treatments were performed. For example, veneers typically last longer than cosmetic dental bonding or teeth whitening. Of course, the care you give your mouth also needs to be taken into account; your smile’s new appearance will be more likely to have a longer lifespan if you’re proactive about maintaining it. Be sure to make choices that will help the results of cosmetic dentistry last longer, such as brushing at least twice a day, staying away from foods that can cause discoloration, and wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth from damage.
How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
The main reason to have cosmetic dentistry performed is if you’re unsatisfied with the way your smile looks. Take a look in the mirror. Are there noticeable discolored spots? Are any of your teeth cracked or chipped? Are there small gaps that draw unwanted attention? If you answered yes to any of these questions – or are bothered by other types of cosmetic flaws – then you should get in touch with us right away. Our team can consider the improvements you want to make and give you recommendations for treatment based on your needs.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?
When it comes to improving the appearance of your smile, it’s always safer to leave it in the hands of a professional. Why take the chance of using over-the-counter whitening products that could potentially do your teeth more harm than good when you can brighten your grin with a professional whitening treatment that uses safe, clinically proven ingredients?
When you visit our office for cosmetic dentistry, we will always be upfront about telling you which treatments may not be a good fit for you. We will also identify and treat any oral health issues that may be present in your mouth before moving forward with any type of cosmetic procedure.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?
Your dental insurance plan most likely won’t pay for cosmetic dental treatments since they aren’t considered necessary. Sometimes exceptions might be made if a given treatment could improve your health in some way. For instance, some insurance companies will pay for a veneer or a crown if it’s being used to keep a cracked tooth safe. It never hurts to double-check your dental insurance policy to see what procedures are and are not covered.
