Cosmetic Dentistry – Bellevue, WA
Enjoy the Dazzling Smile Improvements You Deserve
While oral health should always be a top priority, Dr. Preet and her team also understand that a smile’s attractiveness is important, too. Straight, white teeth can lead to better first impressions, a stronger sense of self-confidence, and more success in the professional world as well. Of course, not everyone can enjoy these benefits naturally. If you have noticeable dental flaws and imperfections, we would love to welcome you for a cosmetic consultation that will help us give you the kind of smile you’re always eager to show off. Contact Bellevue Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today!
Porcelain veneers are a comprehensive cosmetic solution for patients who feel overwhelmed by several aesthetic flaws at once, from dark-colored stains to crooked teeth to chips in the enamel. This high-quality, custom-made restoration essentially functions as a “do-over” by covering the teeth with a highly attractive and lifelike replacement. Veneers are extremely durable as well and will resist staining even more successfully than your natural tooth enamel.
When you’re in need of help with rebuilding a damaged front tooth, there’s no need to settle for a dark-colored restoration that stands out in your natural smile. Our Bellevue practice offers metal-free restorations that are beautifully lifelike and durable! In addition to their high aesthetic value, these crowns, inlays, and onlays also won’t feel overly sensitive when eating cold and hot foods, and their biocompatible structure is safe for patients with previous allergies to dental metals.
Dental bonding, also called cosmetic or direct bonding, is a quick and simple way to correct small flaws such as gaps between the teeth or dark spots on the enamel. In fact, our team can usually complete these improvements in just one appointment! Dr. Preet will apply tooth-colored composite resin that’s been precisely matched to your smile’s existing shade and then sculpt it into a subtle and unobtrusive addition. While bonding may not be as permanent as a new metal-free restoration or porcelain veneer, patients can still expect the improvements to last for several years with the proper maintenance.
Over time, it’s very likely that your teeth will lose at least a little of their natural shine. Many patients struggle with dark stains or yellow discoloration that make it difficult to smile confidently in everyday life – thankfully, this doesn’t have to be permanent. At Bellevue Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Preet can help with professional teeth whitening solutions. In-office treatment is available for patients who want to achieve fast results, while take-home kits can be used at a more gradual, flexible pace. We want to make sure that your chosen solution is the best fit for you!
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Want the option to effectively whiten your teeth whenever and wherever you want? We can provide you with your own custom-made take-home kit that will give you the dramatic results you won’t find on store shelves. Your kit will consist of mouth trays specially formed to fit your teeth and a highly potent bleaching gel. Simply use the kit daily for two weeks, and you can easily make your smile up to 8 shades whiter while you relax at home or surf the web.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Do you want to correct crooked teeth or noticeable gaps in your smile? Invisalign is an excellent way for adults and teenagers to accomplish beautiful orthodontic improvements without having to wear traditional braces. It uses a series of aligners that are clear and custom-designed for your unique mouth, resulting in a comfortably subtle treatment – most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them at all! They’re also removable, which means that you can continue brushing, flossing, and eating a varied diet like normal throughout treatment.
BioClear is a revolutionary treatment that uses dental composite around a tooth to create fully functional and beautiful results. This provides an affordable and less invasive alternative to other treatments. BioClear is versatile, allowing it to be used for several purposes, like filling black triangles between your teeth or closing gaps.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
If you’re ready to give your confidence a boost by achieving your dream smile, our office has the solutions for you. Although you’re excited to revamp your teeth, you likely have a few concerns before you’re ready to commit to a treatment plan. We’ll explain the process during your initial consultation, but here are the answers to a few of the most common questions we are asked to help ease any apprehensions until your appointment.
What are common cosmetic procedures?
Thanks to new innovations in dentistry, you have more options than ever to achieve a picture-perfect smile. Your treatment plan will consist of specific procedures catering to your individual needs and goals, which may include one or more options, such as:
- Porcelain veneers
- Metal-free restorations
- Dental bonding
- Teeth whitening
- At-home teeth whitening
- Invisalign Clear Braces
Can my teen benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry can help your teen feel confident through some of the most challenging years of their life. There are many elective procedures suitable for teens, like metal-free restorations, Invisalign, or teeth whitening; however, there are other treatments that may require them to have all their permanent teeth, like porcelain veneers. After a thorough consultation, we will recommend specific treatments based on your teen’s needs and goals.
How long will the process take?
There isn’t any way to determine how long you can expect your treatment process to take without first having a consultation to create a customized plan. Some procedures can be completed in a single visit, like dental bonding, while other treatments can take several months, such as Invisalign. We’ll explain how long you can expect the process to take and address any concerns. We know your time is valuable, which is why we use the latest technologies to reduce how long you spend in the dental chair. We also offer flexible office hours to make it easy to visit our office around your own schedule.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
There isn’t a set fee for cosmetic dentistry because the cost is determined by your specific treatment plan. We’ll provide you with an estimate and discuss your payment options. We accept several payment methods to help you achieve your new smile without breaking the bank, like third-party financing.
Can I use my dental insurance?
In recent years, it was rare for a dental insurance to cover any cosmetic dentistry because they are elective services. Although it isn’t too common, nowadays, there are some exceptions. Restorative and cosmetic dentistry often overlap. As a result, if a treatment is deemed necessary for your dental health, like an all-ceramic crown, your insurance may cover a portion of the cost after reaching your annual deductible. We’ll help you maximize your yearly limit to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. A member of our team will take the time to explain how your policy is being used to pay for your treatments and handle all the paperwork, so you have one less thing to worry about.
