Comprehensive Cosmetic Dentistry
One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments today is teeth whitening. Everyone wants a bright, white smile that they’re proud to share with the people in their lives as well as with the world around them. Studies have actually proven that people with white, attractive smiles are perceived to be more confident, successful, charismatic, and approachable. With our professional-grade teeth whitening services, our team can effectively eradicate years of deeply set stains caused by tobacco, coffee, wine, and dark foods. The result is a radiant smile that brightens your entire face.
For many patients, stained teeth aren’t the only issue plaguing their smile. Other cosmetic concerns include chips or cracks in enamel, crowding of the teeth, and gaps between the teeth that show when they smile. Fortunately, our Oklahoma City cosmetic dentistry practice offers a solution that corrects all of these problems all at once: porcelain veneers.
These thin, stain-resistant shells of dental porcelain are crafted to look and feel like natural tooth enamel and bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Many of your favorite movie stars and performers have transformed their smiles with porcelain veneers, including Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta Jones, Demi Moore, George Clooney, and Nicolas Cage, among others.
Cosmetic bonding is another commonly performed aesthetic procedure, restoring beauty to teeth that have been damaged or are naturally misshapen or oddly spaced. Bonding can close spaces between teeth, improve the appearance of stained teeth, make short teeth appear longer, and even change the shape of a tooth to make it more attractive. We can also use bonding materials to fill a tooth that has been damaged by decay. The tooth-colored substance is applied as a liquid to the enamel and cured with a special light. This composite material is shaded to match your teeth for a natural, even-toned look.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
You can invest in your confidence with the help of your cosmetic dentist in Oklahoma City. Although you’re excited to achieve the smile of your dreams, it’s normal to have several questions before you’re ready to commit to a treatment. We take the time to explain what you can expect and address any concerns during your initial consultation. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to a few common questions to help you make the best decision for your smile.
What are popular cosmetic treatments?
Thanks to modern advancements in dentistry, you now have more options than ever to achieve your aesthetic goals. Depending on your specific concerns and the results you want to achieve, your dentist may recommend one or more procedures. Among the most popular cosmetic treatments include:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- Cosmetic bonding

Can my teeth benefit from cosmetic services?
Everyone deserves to feel confident about their smile, even teens. Believe it or not, there are several cosmetic treatments suitable for teens, like teeth whitening or cosmetic bonding. Depending on the results they want to achieve, we may recommend your teen wait until they have all their permanent teeth before moving forward.
How long will it take?
We know your time is valuable, which is why our office is conveniently located and offers flexible hours to make it easy to maintain your visits. Unfortunately, there’s no way to determine how many appointments you’ll need without first performing a consultation. The duration of your treatment varies depending on the specific procedure because some can be completed in a single day while others may take more than one visit. We will explain how long you can expect it to take based on your specific plan.
Can I use my dental insurance for cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is considered an elective service. As a result, many dental insurance companies won’t cover the cost of the treatments, but there are some exceptions. Now, restorative and cosmetic procedures often overlap. Therefore, if your dentist in Oklahoma City deems it necessary to your oral health, your insurance policy may cover a portion of the cost after paying your annual deductible. This can lower the amount you need to pay until you reach your yearly limit.
We know dental insurance is confusing, which is why we work on your behalf to file the necessary claims and forms to reduce the amount you need to pay. A member of our team will take the time to explain how your benefits are being used and if there’s a remaining balance.
How can I pay for my new smile?
People from all walks of life turn to cosmetic dentistry because it is more affordable than ever. Besides traditional payment options and your insurance, there are several ways to keep your new smile within your budget, like third-party financing with CareCredit. You’re given the funds you need to cover any out-of-pocket expense, which you’ll repay using a plan that accommodates your budget.
