Why Choose Neil W Vanik, DDS PA for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Tooth-Colored Materials for Better Esthetics
- Take-Home Whitening for Added Convenience
- Metal-Free restoration Options Available
Porcelain veneers are one of the most comprehensive and natural-looking restorations you can use to hide imperfections in teeth. These ultra-thin sheaths of dental ceramic are customized to fit over your existing teeth and blend in with your smile. After minor modifications are made to your tooth or teeth, we can create a series of restorations that hide everything from permanent discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and even slightly rotated teeth!
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
When your tooth is damaged, you don’t want your restorations to be so noticeable that you feel embarrassed to smile. To make sure that your next restoration looks as natural as possible, we use Emax dental crowns. We use them because they are the most durable, long-lasting, and natural-looking crown on the market to date, making them ideal for solving both your restorative and cosmetic concerns simultaneously.
Opalescence® Teeth Whitening
In many cases, patients simply want to give their smile a minor boost, usually to remove stains that brushing cannot. That’s where take-home whitening from Opalescence comes in. With a pair of custom-made whitening trays and professional-grade whitening solution, you can easily brighten teeth on your own time in the comfort of your own home. Simply wear the bleaching gel-filled trays for a set period of time every day over the next two weeks, and you can achieve a truly whiter smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Do you still have questions about cosmetic dentistry? The best way to learn whether our smile-improving treatments can benefit your unique needs is to schedule a consultation. We’ve also answered some of the most common questions that we receive from our patients below for your convenience.
What are the most common cosmetic procedures?
Dr. Neil Vanik offers a variety of cosmetic procedures that are each customized to fit unique patients’ needs. Depending on what types of results you’d like to achieve and what cosmetic imperfections you’re faced with, we’ll discuss each of your options with you during your consultation. However, the most common treatments that our patients get include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Professional teeth whitening
- Metal-free dental restorations
Will my dental insurance cover the cost of my cosmetic treatment?
Unfortunately, dental insurance companies typically don’t cover the cost of cosmetic treatments because they’re not considered essential to maintaining or improving your oral health. However, some procedures overlap into both the restorative and cosmetic categories, so there is a chance that those may be covered. The best way to find out is to contact your insurance provider directly. We also offer additional financing options for our patients through CareCredit so you can break up the cost of your treatment into easy-to-manage payments.
Can teens benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
Although cosmetic dentistry seems like it primarily benefits adults who are looking to brighten or improve their smile, it can also benefit teens. Dr. Vanik offers Invisalign orthodontic treatment, tooth-colored fillings, and natural looking crowns for teens who need to repair damaged teeth but don’t want to draw attention to them. Plus, with Invisalign treatment, they can straighten teeth and fix bite problems, improving their overall oral health and reducing their risk of developing dental issues as adults.
How long do cosmetic dental procedures take?
Every cosmetic service that we offer is customized to fix the unique imperfections that you face. That’s why you have to schedule an initial consultation so we can examine your mouth before we can provide you with a detailed treatment timeline. Depending on the treatment that you choose to get and the extent of your dental flaws, your treatment can take anywhere from a single appointment to several visits over the course of multiple weeks.
