It’s a common misconception that all cosmetic dentistry treatments are expensive. A skilled cosmetic dentist in Somerset will have solutions to improve your smile without breaking the bank.

Dr. Michael Pope suggests a cosmetic consultation and exam to go over your options. We will begin by discussing your goals and the treatments available to help you feel great about your smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is an affordable and quick way to spruce up your smile. At Southern Dental Group, we have take-home and in-office whitening to brighten your smile.

Because we create custom teeth whitening trays, you can hold onto them to brighten your smile whenever it needs a touch-up. 

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Chipped, gapped, and irregularly shaped teeth can make you feel self-conscious about smiling. Cosmetic dental bonding is a conservative way to alter the shape of teeth or fill in damaged enamel for an improved look.

Using the same durable tooth-colored composite that we use for fillings, we will closely match the bonding to your natural tooth color for seamless results.

Cosmetic dental bonding works best for small flaws and is not as durable as crowns or veneers for bigger cosmetic concerns.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If you are of a certain age, you might have large metal fillings that darken your teeth. While amalgam fillings were the best option at the time, especially for posterior teeth, over time, they can cause your entire tooth to darken.

Dr. Michael Pope and our dental team will monitor old restorations closely. Most large fillings will need replacement at some point, and our porcelain crowns and composite fillings look much nicer than their old-fashioned predecessors.

Speaking to a cosmetic dentist in Somerset will answer many of your questions about the cost of cosmetic dentistry procedures. We’d love to hear from you and look forward to helping you improve your smile.
