You can remove a majority of smile imperfections with porcelain veneers alone. In fact, they can completely change the size, color and spacing of your teeth! These restorations are made from ultra-thin, yet durable ceramic shells that attach to the visible portions of teeth. This way, they can hide gaps, chips, cracks, and discoloration. In addition, they are more resistant to stains because of their incredibly smooth texture, so as long as you take care of them, they won’t dull or yellow anywhere near as easily as natural teeth.
Silver and gold crowns are generally capable of restoring teeth damaged by decay or injury, but they aren’t exactly subtle. It’s one of the reasons why we provide porcelain dental crowns as an alternative. While they are fully capable of repairing several decayed and broken teeth, they also look incredibly lifelike, making it easy for them to blend in with existing teeth. This ensures no one but your dentist will know you had them placed.
If you want to resolve your cosmetic imperfections more quickly, you can easily do so with the help of cosmetic bonding. In this case, porcelain veneers may not be the best solution for you. Cosmetic bonding only takes a single appointment to complete and about an hour out of your day. Once carefully molded and hardened using our special curing light, we’ll polish it to make it shine just like real enamel. Not only will the final results of your cosmetic bonding treatment be incredibly lifelike, but they can last for about 10 years!
If you’re worried about the cost of cosmetic dentistry, you aren’t alone. A lot of the time, patients grow concerned since such treatments aren’t usually covered by dental insurance. Fortunately, at Renaissance Dental, we are here to help. There are several different cosmetic solutions out there at a variety of price points. We would be happy to help you navigate the cost of treatment and determine which option is right for you.
A lot of the time, patients are trying to achieve teeth that are whiter, straighter, or shaped differently. Here are how our options can help in these situations:
Cosmetic dentistry may feel like a big commitment, but it is also an investment that will pay off over time. If you feel self-conscious about your smile, making changes with the help of your dentist can lead to significant improvement for your confidence and self-esteem. Ultimately, this can mean better relationships, social life, professional achievements, and quality of life! It’s important to look at the whole picture to determine if this is a worthwhile investment for you.
Most of the time, cosmetic dental treatments are not covered by dental insurance because they are considered to be elective. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re left completely on your own. We have an In-House Dental Plan that allows members to save 30% on treatment fees.
We also work with CareCredit – a third-party financing company that can break the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly installments with little-to-no interest. Talk to one of our friendly team member to learn more about your options.

Here, we’ve taken the opportunity to answer some of the questions we commonly get from patients about cosmetic dentistry.

You can’t put a price on feeling confident and having a beautiful smile. If you aren’t 100 percent happy with how your teeth look, you may not want to draw attention to them. Improving how your smile looks will encourage you to share it more often with others, helping boost not only their mood but yours as well. Also, smiling can demonstrate your positivity and approachability, which can be helpful both socially and professionally. In fact, you might even get a promotion or raise, making your smile makeover well worth the financial investment!
Regardless of the procedure you decide to get, we will make sure you are completely comfortable. With cosmetic bonding, we are not affecting your natural tooth structure, which means there will be no pain whatsoever. For other treatments, like porcelain veneers and crowns, we need to remove a tiny portion of enamel to make space for the restoration. As a result, some discomfort could occur, which is why we administer a local anesthetic. Once we give you the anesthetic, you feel nothing at all, allowing you to sit back and relax while we perfect your smile.
The lifespan of your new smile depends on a couple of factors. First, the type of treatment determines how long your results will continue to look best. For example, cosmetic bonding typically lasts about 7 to 10 years, whereas veneers and crowns can last up to 20. Second, your efforts to maintain your new smile will have a huge impact on how long it stays beautiful. Fortunately, maintenance doesn’t require very much—daily brushing and flossing and regularly visiting our Fort Worth practice for checkups and cleanings. For added measure, you can also help your results last longer by quitting smoking and drinking less coffee or other staining substances.
Before we can begin any cosmetic work on your teeth, we need to make sure your smile is healthy enough. You cannot have any cavities, gum disease, or other issue that takes precedence. If you do have an impediment, we can address it and revisit the idea of cosmetic dentistry after the problem is under control. At that point, we can explore your options and find a treatment that will best meet your needs and goals.
