Porcelain Veneers

When you look in the mirror, is your eye drawn to dental discoloration, then to small chips and cracks that litter your smile? If you suffer from several different cosmetic imperfections that are causing your self-confidence to decline, porcelain veneers may be the answer for you. These are thin, durable, custom-crafted shells made from stain-resistant dental porcelain that are made to fit over the visible surface of your teeth. Once placed, they conceal a variety of flaws and make your smile appear complete, bright, aligned, and beautiful.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

Different types of metal free dental crowns

In the past, repairing a damaged and severely decayed tooth meant getting a metal crown that was highly noticeable. Over time, they could cause heightened dental sensitivity, dark lines around the tooth, and even tooth discoloration. At Southern Oaks Dental, we utilize beautiful zirconia, porcelain, and ceramic, which can all be custom-shaded to match the color of your natural enamel and flawlessly blend-in with your smile. They also provide lasting protection from additional damage, so you can rest-assured that your tooth will stay healthy.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

We offer cost-effective cosmetic bonding that allows us to re-sculpt the missing portion of your tooth from a composite resin to rebuild your completed grin.

Gum Recontouring

Does your smile look disproportionately gummy? The showstopping feature of any grin should be your beautiful, healthy, and bright teeth. For some people, most of their pearly whites are being covered up by pink gums that aren’t as flattering to look at. If you have a gummy smile, you may be able to benefit from gum recontouring. Using our Ivoclar diode dental laser, our team is able to precisely re-sculpt your gumline to reveal more of your teeth and less of your oral tissues.

This can make it seem like you’re taking a gamble on your grin. Using the latest dental technology, we’re able to build a blueprint of your mouth to show you what your smile will look like before and after getting the treatments you want. That way, you know exactly what to expect and can confidently invest in your grin.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cost of cosmetic dentistry in Tyler

Attempting to determine the cost of cosmetic dentistry is impossible without a consultation. You must agree to meet with Dr. Markle to discuss which treatment option(s) you prefer. Based on the recommendations he provides as well as the budget and preferences you express, we will formulate a plan that not only puts you one step closer to your desired smile but is also financially affordable. You can also expect that our team will go over the available payment options with you before leaving your consultation appointment.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

Before and after veneers

When preparing for your consultation with Dr. Markle, you can expect that he will explain the various cosmetic services that are available. Each has its own price point, which he will also go over with you during your visit:

  • Veneers: Veneers are considered one or more expensive forms of cosmetic treatment because of their permanence. Although the custom restorations will need to be replaced over time, the fact that a small amount of tooth enamel must be removed causes them to be a permanent solution. Veneers are placed in just two appointments but can last 10-15 years.
  • Metal-Free Dental Crowns: When suffering from a decayed or damaged tooth, we can provide you with a metal-free dental crown. Designed to blend in with your natural smile, the materials used create a more pleasing aesthetic; however, if you plan to have multiple teeth covered with these restorations, you can expect the cost to increase.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: When looking to cover minor imperfections like small stains or chips, cosmetic dental bonding can be a quick and affordable solution. Relying on composite resin – the same material applied for tooth-colored fillings – it covers the flawed area(s) to produce a new and improved smile. Although more cost-effective, it does need to be replaced after a few years.
  • Teeth Whitening: Our office uses K?R teeth whitening to brighten smiles plagued by intrinsic and extrinsic discoloration. Capable of removing stains and enhancing appearances, it is viewed as one of the more affordable cosmetic dental treatments we offer, and it can last months or even a year.
  • Gum Recontouring: When it comes to treating gummy smiles, gum recontouring is a permanent form of treatment that is worth the investment. Costlier than other forms of cosmetic care, it takes care of the situation once and for all so that you don’t have to worry about gum regrowth in the future.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

While it is true that cosmetic dentistry is an investment in your time and money, it’s worth it because of the boost in confidence you will receive. Although your physical appearance will drastically improve, so will your mental and emotional well-being because of the way you view yourself.

Oftentimes, an unhealthy or imperfect smile can cause depression, sadness, and lack of motivation. However, once you choose cosmetic dentistry to address the flaws in your smile, you’ll discover just how beneficial this elective form of treatment is to your overall health and well-being.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

At Southern Oaks Dental, Dr. Markle understands that cosmetic dentistry is not readily affordable for all patients, especially when paying out of pocket. Since dental insurance is unlikely to cover the costs of treatment, he is pleased to offer flexible financing through CareCredit. In partnering with this third-party company, he makes it easy to enroll in a plan that matches your timeframe and budget. Whether it is a low or no-interest option that you choose, you can pay back the cost of your care over time instead of all upfront.

Also, Dr. Markle is currently offering a special deal on both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.
