Porcelain veneers have long been one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today because they’re able to mask and eliminate a wide variety of cosmetic flaws at the same time. With them, we can simultaneously:

Is a small stain, chip, crack, or gap really throwing off the appearance of your entire smile? If so, Dr. Nossa is happy to provide a quick and easy solution using direct bonding. With this, a tooth-colored composite resin will be applied to your tooth, and Dr. Nossa will use it to literally sculpt away its imperfections. The entire procedure usually takes less than an hour, and the results can last for many years with proper maintenance (which just consists of regular brushing and flossing).

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

Not every cosmetic dental treatment we offer is priced equally. At our practice, we offer several different services to help improve your smile in varying ways. Let’s take a closer look at some of our most popular options:

  • Direct Bonding – Have small imperfections you want to address? Direct bonding is an excellent way to reshape damaged teeth and cover small flaws. Although it’s certainly cost-effective, you’ll need to have the treatment redone every few years.
  • Teeth Whitening – If you want to improve your smile as quickly as possible, teeth whitening is the way to go. It’s fast and inexpensive, making it the perfect solution for patients who aren’t worried about tooth shape or position.
  • Veneers – While this option is more costly, it’s the only one capable of transforming multiple aspects of your smile at once. Extreme staining, discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and even misalignment can all be fixed with veneers. Best of all, your results can last well over a decade with proper care and maintenance!

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Best of all, these plans often come with little-to-no interest attached, meaning you can save even more money!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Cosmetic dentistry can give you a picture-perfect smile, but it’s normal to have a few concerns about the road ahead. Your cosmetic dentist in Gainesville, Dr. Gabriel A. Nossa, will explain everything during your consultation to ease any apprehensions. You can also find the answers to the most frequently asked questions below. Feel free to contact our office to speak with a member of our dental team if you don't see what you're looking for.

Which Cosmetic Procedure is Right for Me?

Every mouth and situation differs, but there are multiple options to address common concerns. Dr. Nossa will examine your mouth and learn more about your preferences to determine which procedures might be right for you, like:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Bonding veneers to the front sides of the teeth that show when you smile can fix many issues using one procedure, including stains, chips, and gaps.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: Ceramic materials can be used to create durable restorations that look like real teeth.
  • Direct Bonding: A composite material can be shaded to the color of your enamel to blend in with your tooth when addressing minor issues, like exposed tooth roots, chips, and decay.
  • Teeth Whitening: Surface stains can be improved by up to 8 shades using a professional whitening system.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Dr. Nossa will keep your comfort as his top priority. He may use a numbing medication to block pain, depending on your treatment plan. At most, you might feel some pressure or odd sensations. After the effects of any numbing medications wear off, you may experience temporary tenderness. You can manage it with an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Every procedure has a different lifespan and many factors will affect the duration of your results. Dr. Nossa will explain how long you can expect your results to last and what you can do to get the most from your new smile, like practicing good oral hygiene and scheduling a cleaning and checkup every 6 months.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Your dental insurance may cover your consultation and diagnostic services. If you require any prep work, like gum disease treatment, your benefits may pay some of the expenses. However, it's not common for dental insurance to cover elective procedures unless they are medically necessary, like cosmetic bonding to fix a chipped tooth. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any coverage to lower the amount you'll pay out-of-pocket.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

The diversity of treatment options means there's a solution to fit your budget. Not to mention, our office accepts multiple payment methods, including third-party financing. You can pay any out-of-pocket expenses using a monthly payment plan to keep your new smile affordable.
