Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry

candidate for cosmetic dentistryErie, Harborcreek and Millcreek, PA

Have you ever thought about improving the way your smile looks? You may be able to achieve the smile of your dreams through cosmetic dentistry. At Laser Dentistry of Erie, LLC, we meet with any patient who is interested in cosmetic dentistry to make sure he or she is a good candidate for cosmetic dental procedures.

Our philosophy

Your oral health is always our top priority. That means evaluating the condition of your teeth, mouth, and gums before considering any cosmetic procedure. This will save you time and money in the long run. We believe in treating any pre-existing oral health problems before proceeding to cosmetic work.

More than just looks

Certain oral health issues can make it more difficult or too risky to perform cosmetic treatments. For example, if you have cavities or gum disease, we recommend treating those issues first before considering a procedure such as teeth whitening. Treating an issue such as gum disease before undergoing cosmetic dentistry will help prolong your results, and reduce the likeliness of having to redo dental work later on.

If your teeth are otherwise healthy, then you are likely a good candidate for any cosmetic procedure that we perform. Each patient considering cosmetic dentistry, however, will undergo a complete consultation in which the dentist will evaluate the patient’s oral health, as well as any pre-existing health conditions that they may have. 

We are proud to offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures, including the following:

  • Veneers
  • Gum recontouring
  • Dental bonding
  • Crowns
  • Composite fillings
  • Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment, such as braces
  • Teeth whitening
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Implants
  • Custom dentures
  • New You dentures
  • Implant support dentures
  • Partial dentures

Looking at this list, it may be a difficult decision to know which procedures are right for you. This is why each patient will have a consultation first, and then an individualized treatment plan is made that lays out everything that is to be done to achieve your desired results.

How to pay for your cosmetic dental procedures

Cosmetic dentistry also can be more affordable than you might think. Procedures such as dental bonding and teeth whitening quickly can improve the look of your teeth, and are among the least expensive procedures. If you need help affording your cosmetic dentistry procedures, Laser Dentistry of Erie, LLC, offers an assortment of different payment options, including third party financing.
