Build Your Smile the Way You Want It

Not every smile is perfect. In fact, most aren’t. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to live with dental damage, gaps, and discoloration that bring down your self-confidence and make you want to hide your smile instead of letting it show. Dr. Upton is an accomplished cosmetic dentist who has decades of experience transforming grins. If you have dental imperfections that you’ve been wanting to get rid of, our team at Arrowhead Dentistry can likely help with cosmetic dentistry in Glendale, AZ!

Why Choose Arrowhead Dentistry for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are often considered a one-stop-shop because they can address several cosmetic flaws in one treatment. The veneers themselves can be crafted from porcelain or ceramic, depending on your preferences, and they’re individually made to fit over each tooth. They’re shaped like small sheaths that are made to fit over the visible surface of the teeth, concealing dental damage, discoloration, gaps, chips, and even slight misalignment.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Do you have an outdated metal filling or crown that you’d like to have replaced? Dr. Upton uses gold-standard dental materials to craft lifelike restorations, like Emax, porcelain fused to metal, and zirconia. Not only do they blend in with your surrounding teeth so they don’t highlight dental damage, but they’re also built to last for an average of seven years with the proper maintenance.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a simple, cost-effective way to restore chipped and damaged teeth as well as fill in gaps between teeth. Using a biocompatible composite resin, Dr. Upton is able to sculpt the missing portion of your tooth and adhere it to your natural tooth. He’ll then texturize the putty to be virtually indistinguishable from your enamel. Once completed, you likely won’t even be able to tell which tooth was damaged!

Teeth Whitening

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Are you worried about the cost of your cosmetic dental treatment? Cosmetic dentistry isn’t usually covered by dental insurance, so patients are often hesitant to commit to treatment. Because everyone’s smile goals are unique, we won’t be able to determine the cost of your treatment until you can see us for a consultation. We have a wide array of cosmetic solutions and are happy to help you navigate the cost. For the time being, here are some things for you to keep in mind.

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

Patients are usually trying to achieve a smile that’s straighter, whiter, or shaped differently. Here’s how some of our options can help in those cases:

  • Direct Bonding – This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be completed in a single visit to the office, and it is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments out there. Direct bonding can correct many minor imperfections, like chips and stains. Depending on how well you maintain the results, direct bonding can last anywhere from 3 to 10 years.
  • Teeth Whitening – Teeth can become discolored in a variety of different ways, but with professional teeth whitening, you can see noticeable results in a short period of time. This is another more affordable option, and results last anywhere from a couple of months to a few years depending on how well you care for them.
  • Veneers – Veneers aren’t the most affordable option out there, but they are the easiest way to transform numerous aspects of your smile at the same time. This includes the color, shape, and minor alignment issues.
  • Invisalign – If you have alignment issues, Invisalign is a great option. This treatment costs several thousands of dollars, but it is an effective way to correct crooked teeth and bite issues.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Ultimately, this can mean better relationships, a more vibrant social life, and a higher quality of life. To determine whether cosmetic dentistry is a worthwhile investment for you, you need to look at the entire picture.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
