Cosmetic Dentist – Plano, TX

Let Us Create Your Perfect Smile

woman with beautiful teethIt’s easy to understand why cosmetic dentistry is so popular these days. Beautifully white and straight teeth can be a valuable asset, implying success, youth, confidence, and many more positive attributes. A flawless smile can be a huge confidence booster! If there is anything you dislike about the way your teeth look, Dr. Shannon Stokes and his team will be happy to help. We offer several procedures that are able to transform broken, chipped, discolored, or otherwise unattractive teeth.

Our available cosmetic treatments include:

Porcelain Veneers

They offer a natural appearance, they can last for a decade or longer, and they’re strong enough to stand up to everyday eating and drinking. It may take as little as two appointments for our team to create your stunning new look!

Teeth Whitening

The super strong bleaching solution penetrates teeth to break up even deep-set stains that have plagued your smile for decades. This is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments we offer, and with proper maintenance, your results can last for years.

Direct Bonding

Direct bonding, sometimes called cosmetic bonding, is similar to porcelain veneers in that it covers your teeth’s flaws. Instead of using porcelain, however, bonding uses an acrylic resin that Dr. Stokes shapes over your teeth and then hardens with a special curing light. It usually takes just one appointment to apply the bonding material, and the results can be truly stunning! This treatment is often ideal for patients who have just one or two teeth whose appearance could use an upgrade.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

In the past, dental crowns were almost always constructed of metals, such as gold and silver, which clashed with the teeth around them and could disrupt a smile’s natural beauty. Today, a more aesthetically pleasing solution is available. A porcelain crown blends in seamlessly with your smile, providing protection and new strength to a weak or damaged tooth. We custom-design each crown so it not only matches the color of the teeth around it, but also so it provides you with a comfortable bite.

Crown Lengthening

The problem may be that excess gum tissue is covering too much of your teeth, resulting in a disproportionate look. With our crown lengthening procedure, we can gently remove some of that extra tissue to expose more of your teeth’s crowns. The result will be a more balanced smile that you’ll be proud to show off.

Contact our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Stokes and his dedicated team! Located at Coit and Legacy in Plano, TX, we strive to create strong, long-lasting relationships with families of all sizes through our exceptional dental care.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Patients tend to worry about paying for cosmetic dentistry because insurance usually will not pay for it. We’re well aware of that, which is why we work closely with our cosmetic patients to make sure that they can get excellent care within their budget.

If you want to learn a little bit more about how to get your dream smile without breaking the bank, here are some things you ought to know.

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

First of all, it’s worth pointing out that cosmetic dentistry isn’t all just one thing. There are a wide variety of treatments, and they each have a different price point. Direct bonding, for example, is a quick and effective treatment that’s pretty inexpensive. Teeth whitening is also on the cheaper side, though of course, its use case is a little limited.

If you want broader transformations, veneers and braces can make a massive difference in how your smile looks. Then there are smile makeovers, which involve a combination of several treatments. While they produce great results, these procedures are also more expensive.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making

While most patients aren’t thrilled about paying for treatment, they love the confidence and beauty that cosmetic dentistry affords them. Cosmetic dentistry can allow you to make a better impression when it matters most, when can mean real benefits to your work life, and actual money in your pocket.

That’s to say nothing about how your new smile will affect your social and romantic life. With all this in mind, the price of cosmetic dentistry is absolutely worth it.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

That said, it’s still an unavoidable fact that your dental plan is unlikely to cover elective procedures. However, we have options that can potentially make care much more affordable for you.

We often work with CareCredit, which is a dental financing firm that works kind of like a healthcare-based credit card. You can use it to pay for care upfront, then either pay it off in monthly installments or in full once you get paid.

We want you to experience what cosmetic dentistry can do, so even if you’re worried about finances, we’ll work with you to find care that’s within your budget.
