Plaque and tartar can be controlled by combining home care with cleanings from our Placerville dentists.

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry

When you think of the term “cosmetic dentistry,” affordability doesn’t usually come to mind. Many think cosmetic dentistry is for the rich and famous, and in some extreme cases this is true. But there are also surprisingly affordable treatments to create the smile you’ve always wanted.

The Placerville Dental Group helps patients improve their smiles while maintaining a heathy mouth. Many of our dental patients want a brighter smile. Our professional in-office whitening treatments are safe and effective. In as little as one visit, patients have a noticeably whiter smile. Do you have a special event coming up, such as a wedding? Feel more confident on your special day by requesting tooth whitening. Better yet, if you have a cleaning appointment already scheduled, notify us before hand. With only a little extra time, we can show you our easy tooth whitening process.

Some patients have chipped teeth and on these occasions, tooth bonding is often an economical and satisfactory treatment option. Bonding applies a tooth-colored composite resin to the surface of chipped teeth. The composite material fills in gaps between teeth and protects roots that are exposed due to gum recession. Much like doing a filling (since it uses the same material), the entire procedure is virtually painless and is usually completed in one visit. Sometimes this is also referred to as a “buccal filling” and can be covered by insurance.

Of course, there are other more involved cosmetic procedures that require more time for treatment. For example, our Placerville dental professionals also provide complete smile makeovers for those who need them. Orthodontics, such as Invisalign, not only straighten teeth, but also help patients keep their teeth disease free. So if you are seeking a brighter smile, call us or use an online request today to schedule an appointment for simple solutions that are effective and affordable!
