Q. How Do I Choose the Best Cosmetic Dentist?
When it comes to your smile, there is no room for error. That is why it is so important to pick a talented, experienced professional who can craft your dream smile. Recognized as a Washington DC Top Dentist, Dr. Stephanie Browning has completed advanced training in a number of specialties, including natural-looking veneers and Bioclear restorations. Whether you are looking to correct a small cosmetic concern or undergo a complete smile transformation, she will use her advanced training, clinical expertise, and genuine passion for her craft to deliver the beautiful results you deserve!
Q. Are Cosmetic Dentists More Expensive Than Other Dentists?
When discussing affordability, there are a few factors that are important to consider. Number one is dental insurance. Since most dental plans do not cover cosmetic treatments, like veneers, visiting a cosmetic dentist can be more expensive than other dentists. However, each policy is unique. Fortunately, our team has extensive experience in maximizing coverage to help you understand the cost. So, don’t hesitate to ask!
Q. How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
Depending on the service you are interested in, the answer may vary. For example, professional teeth whitening treatment can last 2+ years while porcelain veneers have a lifespan of 15+ years. However, across the board, the best way to prolong the results is by taking care of your smile. With that being said, make sure to brush twice a day, floss daily, avoid sugary foods and beverages, and always visit us for follow-up appointments!
Q. What Is the Average Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry?
When determining the cost of cosmetic care, there are a few elements that determine the final cost (i.e., which service you are interested in, how many teeth you are looking to fix, etc.). Since everyone’s smile is unique, the best way to get the exact price of upgrading your smile is to schedule an initial consultation with our helpful staff. From there, we can create a custom treatment plan, share a breakdown of the price, and answer any questions you have!
What Is the Best Cosmetic Dental Procedure?
In short, the best cosmetic procedure is the one that addresses the aesthetic concerns you have and provides you with the jaw-dropping results you are looking for. So, if a small chip is negatively impacting your self-esteem, a simple, but effective, treatment with dental bonding can perfect your smile. On the other hand, if you are looking to address discoloration, minor misalignment, and the shape of your teeth, then porcelain veneers are ideal. We’d be happy to help you determine which option is best for you during your one-on-one consultation!
