Metal-Free Restorations

The teeth that show when you smile are essential, so when they are in need of repair, we’re ready to offer a special kind of care using metal-free restorations. With crowns made of Empress, eMax, or Bruxzir zirconia (a high-quality ceramic), we can provide a strong, durable, and natural-looking solution that will make it look like nothing ever happened to your smile.

Direct Bonding

Man with healthy smile

Direct bonding allows Dr. Greenwood to literally sculpt a compromised tooth to perfection. Using a tooth-colored composite resin, he can eliminate most small stains, chips, and gaps. Thanks to his artistic touch, he’ll make any flaw you have quickly disappear. This is not only one of the fastest cosmetic treatments we offer, but it’s also one of the most affordable, and the results can be trusted to be long-lasting with consistent brushing and flossing.

Teeth Whitening

Coffee, wine, tobacco, aging, and even genetics can all leave a smile looking less than white over time. So if you are looking to restore your teeth’s natural brightness, we offer the Opalescence Go bleaching kit to use in the comfort of your own home. This method is affordable and simple to use.

Gum Recontouring

Are you self-conscious about your uneven gum line? Does your “gummy” smile make your teeth appear too short or stubby? If so, we can easily take care of both of these issues with a gum recontouring treatment using our soft tissue laser. With this laser, Dr. Greenwood can painlessly remove excess gum tissue to reveal beautiful, previously hidden dental structure, and then he can shape your gum line to give you that perfectly proportioned look.

Are you looking for a fast and powerful way to transform your smile? Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that we attach to the outward-facing portion of a tooth. They look incredibly natural and can disguise a broad range of aesthetic imperfections, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and so much more. They take just a few appointments to design and place, and once they are attached to your teeth, you can expect them to last for well over a decade.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

At Greenwood dental, we’re proud to offer a variety of cosmetic services at different price points so you can get the smile of your dreams without breaking the bank. Unfortunately, cosmetic dentistry is rarely covered by dental insurance. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be affordable! When you visit us for your consultation, we’ll help you choose the most cost-effective way to achieve the results you’re looking for. Then, we’ll give you a personalized estimate and review your payment options. Achieving the smile you’ve always wanted may be far more affordable than you think! Read on to learn more about the cost of cosmetic dentistry in Sagamore Hills.

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

First, we need to determine which cosmetic dental treatment is best for you. Some of our services are designed to address a single issue, such as the color of your teeth or the shape of your gums, while others can provide comprehensive results for your whole smile! Naturally, each treatment will have a unique cost, so let’s review how they compare:

  • Direct Bonding – Direct bonding is a quick, easy, and very cost-effective way to transform several aspects of one or more teeth. This tooth-colored composite resin can be used to correct chips, stains, gaps, and other minor imperfections seamlessly in a single appointment. While direct bonding will need to be redone every few years, this treatment is well-known for its affordability.
  • Teeth Whitening – While there are plenty of teeth whitening products for sale online and over-the-counter, they simply don’t hold a candle to our professional treatments. With professional teeth whitening, we can reliably brighten your pearly whites by up to eight shades. Professional teeth whitening is cost-effective and can last for a year or more with the proper care.
  • Metal-Free Restorations – If the tooth or teeth you’d like to improve the appearance of are decayed or damaged, you’ll likely need a dental restoration. Fortunately, we offer 100% metal-free restorations made from high-quality materials like Empress, eMax, and Bruxzir zirconia. Not only are these materials beautifully lifelike, but they’re incredibly strong. While a meal-free restoration may cost more than other cosmetic services, it often receives some coverage from dental insurance.
  • Gum Recontouring – Gum recontouring is a mid-range cosmetic treatment that improves your smile without changing your teeth. If your teeth appear short or stubby, or if your smile appears gummy, you may have excess gum tissue. With gum recontouring, we can quickly and comfortably remove the extra gum tissue to reveal your naturally beautiful smile.


Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making

Unsure if cosmetic dentistry is a good investment for you? It’s important to keep in mind that cosmetic dentistry is about much more than just appearances. Improving the look of your smile can have positive effects in several aspects of your life! As you naturally begin to smile more, you’ll enjoy reduced stress, lower blood pressure, and more self-confidence. Studies also show that a beautiful smile also makes an important difference when making a first impression, and can make a person appear friendly, trustworthy, healthy, and attractive. Boosting your smile with cosmetic dentistry could make all the difference during a job interview or first date!

With that said, every insurance plan is different, so it’s worth it to look at your individual benefits or give us a call and we’ll be happy to explain your coverage.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Your smile should be a source of pride, not shame. You can put your embarrassment behind you thanks to cosmetic dentistry at Greenwood Dental! Remember, you should never agree to any kind of treatment until you feel like you understand it; please let our team know if there’s anything you’re wondering about the services we use to enhance smiles. Below are some examples of cosmetic dentistry questions that a lot of people tend to have.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Our team members are all highly trained and will make sure that your smile and your overall health are well-protected throughout the entire process. Before we begin your cosmetic treatment, though, we will need to review your dental and medical history to see if there are any services that may not be a good fit for you. We’ll only recommend a given treatment if we’re sure that it’s safe for your grin.

Additionally, we’ll need to wait to perform cosmetic dentistry if it could interfere with the treatment of any oral health problems that you currently have. For example, tooth decay should be stopped before the tooth in question is covered with a veneer.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Think about your smile and consider whether there’s anything you want to improve. Do you have several teeth that are noticeably stained or aren’t as bright as you would like them to be? Are there cracks in your smile? Do you feel like your grin makes you look older than you would like? Answering “yes” to any of these questions can be a good reason to move forward with cosmetic dentistry. You can also talk to our team to see what they suggest.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

The discomfort associated with cosmetic dentistry depends on what treatment(s) you’ve chosen. Some treatments are gentle enough that they can be performed without us even needing to numb the mouth first; whitening and direct bonding are good examples. However, a local anesthetic might need to be used for veneers and other procedures.

After your treatment, your mouth might be somewhat sore, and your teeth may be more sensitive than normal. Follow any directions we give you for pain management. The side effects should eventually go away after a certain amount of time.

What’s the Difference Between a Crown and a Veneer?

A veneer only conceals the front part of the tooth while a crown covers the entire structure. Furthermore, while the main purpose of veneers is to make cosmetic improvements, crowns help fix teeth that are badly damaged or decayed. Most of the time, dental insurance won’t pay for veneers, but it will typically offer coverage for crowns that are placed for oral health purposes.

Our team can review more of the pros and cons associated with crowns and veneers with you; we can also help clarify which treatment would be more beneficial for your smile.
