Dr. Quandy has extensively studied veneer design in order to learn how to best use these wafer-thin sheaths to create better smiles. Once veneers have been applied to the teeth, they will cover up all manner of damage, discoloration, and other flaws. Not only do veneers provide a relatively quick solution (as they can be placed in just two visits), but you’ll be able to enjoy your new smile for many years to come, thanks to the durable and stain-resistant porcelain used to make the restoration.
Did you know that the tooth-colored material used to make fillings can also be used to correct a number of cosmetic flaws? We simply take the composite resin, place it on the tooth, and then sculpt and shade it until it matches the enamel. This treatment is suitable for fixing small cracks, lengthening or changing the shape of the teeth, hiding stains, and filling small gaps. It’s ideal for making a few minor improvements over the course of a single visit.
After years of using store-bought whitening products that never seem to have any lasting effect, you might start to lose hope of ever enjoying a brilliant smile. But with an in-office whitening treatment from Dr. Quandt, you can get a significantly whiter smile after just a single appointment. A professional whitening treatment is not just fast; it is also more effective thanks to the professional-grade products used and the oversight of an experienced dental professional.
Gum recontouring is usually performed for one of two reasons: either to reshape the gum line itself to enhance the smile (usually by getting rid of unnecessary gum tissue and exposing more of the natural tooth) or to make room for a porcelain veneer or dental crown. In either case, Dr. Quandt will always focus on carefully shaping the gumline so that your smile looks properly and beautifully balanced by the end of the procedure.
Sometimes you are just not sure where to start with improving your smile. No matter what your concerns are, Dr. Quandt can offer a personalized smile makeover plan that combines different services to address your specific needs. This is often done by using porcelain veneers and dental crowns in conjunction with one another to improve the individual teeth. Other cosmetic treatments might also be employed depending on the extent of the changes that you want to make.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
If you’re not happy with the way your teeth look, you might be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry in Green Bay. Although you’re excited to achieve the smile of your dreams, it’s normal to be a little apprehensive about the road ahead. We’ll explain everything during your initial consultation to ease your worries. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about cosmetic services.
Who isn’t a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?
Most patients are candidates for cosmetic dentistry if they have good oral and general health. Your dental health is important because you can’t move forward with any elective procedures if you have untreated issues, like tooth decay or gum disease. If the complications aren’t fixed, it can lead to a big problem down the road. We’ll perform an extensive examination to look for any concerns that need to be resolved before being any cosmetic treatments.
Can my teen benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
Each case differs. There are several cosmetic procedures that are suitable for teens, like dental bonding. Other treatments may require them to have all their permanent teeth, such as porcelain veneers. We’ll determine which procedures can benefit your teen during their consultation.
How long will the process take?
There isn’t any way to know how long the process will take without first creating a treatment plan. Based on your specific needs, you can have the results you want in as little as one appointment while other procedures may require several visits. We know your time is valuable, which is why our office uses the latest techniques and treatments to help you reach your goals quicker. Don’t worry, while you save time in the dental chair, it won’t compromise the results you achieve.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
There isn’t a pre-determined fee for cosmetic dentistry because the cost is based on your treatment, like the type of procedure needed and the number of teeth you’re treating. We’ll provide you with a personalized estimate and explain the fees associated with your plan. Our office offers many solutions to keep your new smile affordable. Besides traditional payment methods, we also work with third-party financing. You are given the funds you need based on your credit’s approval, which you’ll repay using a schedule that fits your budget.
Can I use my dental insurance for cosmetic dentistry?
Unfortunately, most dental insurances will not pay for cosmetic dentistry because the procedures are elective; however, there are some exceptions. Many cosmetic treatments also provide restorative benefits, like all-ceramic crowns or dental bonding. As a result, if a treatment is necessary for your oral health, you may be able to use your coverage to offset the cost. If applicable, we will work on your behalf with your insurance company to file the claim forms required, so you have one less thing to worry about. A member of our team will explain how your benefits are being used and if there’s any remaining balance.
