Are stained, chipped, cracked, oddly spaced, or misaligned teeth keeping you from smiling with total confidence? At the Newark, DE dental office of Dr. Bond and Dr. Ganfield, we offer a range of cosmetic solutions that can help patients like you turn your smile around. During a consultation, we’ll assess your needs and discuss personal oral health goals with you. Based on this appointment, we can create a completely customized plan for revitalizing your smile.
Maintaining a clean, bright smile over the years may seem easy, but it can be quite difficult. Even diligent oral hygiene is often no match for the ill effects of too much coffee, soda, wine, or smoking. If you’re unhappy with your stained or discolored look, teeth whitening could be the perfect solution for restoring your smile’s former glory.
Once we've determined together that whitening is the best cosmetic option for your smile, we’ll take a detailed impression of your teeth so that we can have customized whitening trays made. Once you’ve received them, along with a high-grade bleaching gel, all you have to do is wear both together for a predetermined period over a handful of days. This can result in teeth that are up to 8 shades whiter!
Porcelain veneers can transform certain teeth or even your entire smile into the look of your dreams! They're precisely crafted from sturdy, tooth-colored materials and made thin enough so that they can fit comfortably and securely over your natural teeth, seamlessly hiding gaps, cracks, chips, discoloration, and other flaws.
The veneers process usually requires around two to three appointments at White Clay Dental Associates. During the first visit, we'll discuss your goals for your new smile and any changes you’d like made concerning the length or shape of your teeth. Once we have this valuable information, we can prepare your natural teeth and take detailed impressions of them that will be sent to a trusted, high-quality laboratory. It will take them no more than 14 days to carefully craft the finished veneer, and during that time, we can provide you with a very similar and beautiful temporary veneer. Once the permanent veneer arrives, we’ll place it and make any adjustments you need so that it feels as comfortable and lifelike as possible.
Have you dreamed about achieving a straighter smile but just can’t commit to the idea of wearing metal braces for months or even years of your life? Dr. Bond and Dr. Ganfield understand your hesitation – that’s why they’re proud to offer image-friendly orthodontic alternatives to traditional braces! Both Invisalign® Clear Braces and Six Month Smiles® offer a transformative treatment process that’s faster, more comfortable, and much more subtle, helping patients correct crooked teeth, noticeable gaps, and more without the strain.
If you want to improve the appearance of your smile, cosmetic bonding offers a great, one-visit solution. We simply use a tooth-colored filling material to fill in gaps between teeth, cover deep set stains, or otherwise improve the appearance of your smile. For patients with just a few minor cosmetic flaws, bonding may be the ideal solution.
You only have one set of teeth. If you don’t like the way they look, you can do something about it by getting a smile makeover with us at White Clay Dental. We can put together a personalized treatment plan that can tackle all the things you want to change about your smile. Whether you want to whiten your teeth, fix a chipped tooth, or do both, we can help! Schedule your consultation to get started.
If you have less than perfect teeth, you don’t need to live with an unattractive smile. We can transform them and your self-esteem with cosmetic dentistry in Newark. Although you’re excited to start your journey to improved confidence, we know you still have several questions. We’ll address them during your initial consultation. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers you need to a few of the most common questions we’re asked.
Now, you have more options than ever to get the smile of your dreams. Depending on your specific concerns and the goals you’d like to achieve, you might be a candidate for:
We’ll create a customized treatment plan using one or more procedures to help you achieve the results you’ve always wanted. If you have several aesthetic concerns, porcelain veneers may be the ideal choice because they can correct multiple issues using one treatment. Depending on the complexity of your case, you might also be a candidate for a smile makeover, which improves the appearance and function of your teeth.
Believe it or not, there are several cosmetic treatments suitable for teens, like teeth whitening, orthodontics, or dental bonding. Depending on the procedure, we may recommend your teen has all their permanent teeth before getting started, such as for a smile makeover. We’ll create a personalized plan to give them the confident, beautiful smile they deserve.
There isn’t any way to determine how long the process will take without first performing your consultation. We know your time is valuable, which is why we offer flexible office hours and use advanced technology to reduce the length of time it takes to achieve your picture-perfect smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is considered to be elective, so it’s rare for a dental insurance to cover the treatment, but there is a gray area. Now, certain cosmetic and restorative procedures overlap. As a result, your insurance company may cover a portion of the cost if it’s determined to be necessary to restore a healthy, functional smile, like dental bonding.
After paying your monthly premiums and your annual deductible, you’re given a yearly allowance to use toward the treatment. We will work on your behalf with your insurance carrier to file the necessary claims and forms to maximize your benefits. We’ll explain how your coverage is being used and if there’s any out-of-pocket costs.
Everyone deserves to have a confident smile, no matter their financial situation. We offer several payment options to keep your dream smile within your budget. Besides using your dental insurance and traditional forms of payment, your dentist in Newark also accepts third-party financing with CareCredit. You’re given the funds you need to pay for your treatment after your credit’s approval. You’ll repay the balance using a payment plan that accommodates your budget. We will help you find the solutions you need to invest in a confident smile without breaking the bank.
