Are there any factors that can affect my candidacy for cosmetic dentistry treatments?
Your Smile Must Be Healthy Before You Can Undergo Cosmetic Care
It is essential that the foundation of your smile is in good health before you begin cosmetic treatment. Your smile should be free of gum disease and decay. However, Dr. Porter provides comprehensive dental care at his practice so he can efficiently address any concerns.
While certain cosmetic procedures can treat oral health conditions such as cracks and dental misalignment, they may not always be sufficient. For instance, while Invisalign can straighten most patients' smiles, traditional orthodontics may be necessary for severe malocclusion. Likewise, porcelain veneers may not be recommended for a tooth that is significantly weakened by damage. Instead, a porcelain dental crown or even a dental implant may be the best option. During your dentistry consultation, Dr. Porter will perform an in-depth evaluation of your oral health and recommend the best treatment for your needs and goals.
Cosmetic dentistry sounds expensive...
We Make It Possible to Afford the Smile You Deserve
Since insurance does not typically cover this type of dentistry, many patients are worried that it is a luxury they cannot afford. However, that is not the case. Several financing options can be applied to your treatment to reduce your overall out-of-pocket cost. In addition to CareCredit®, we also offer in-house financing. Additionally, Dr. Porter can tailor treatment to suit your budget, from more cost-effective materials to an alternative procedure.
