In-Practice KÖR Teeth Whitening

Teeth can become lackluster over the years for a variety of reasons, including age, genetics, certain medications, and a love of coffee and wine. If you’ve got a big event coming up and you’d like nothing more than to regain your brilliant smile, our team is here to help with revolutionary in-practice KöR whitening. This system restores your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen and allows them to deeply absorb the new oxygen from the whitening gel, dissolving stain molecules – even tetracycline (medicinal-based) stains that other whitening solutions can’t treat! The treatment consists of several weeks of take-home applications followed by one to two in-office appointments depending on the type of staining. Once you’re finished, you’ll be amazed by your brand-new, radiant look.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Some patients prefer to improve the shade of their smile in a much more gradual manner, which is where at-home kits become an ideal cosmetic option. Our Bothell, WA dental team will provide you with custom-made oral trays and high-grade bleaching gel; all you need to do to achieve your dream results is to wear both together for a certain period of time each day. The treatment can revolve around your personal schedule, and you’re able to relax in the comfort of your own home. Sometimes, changes can be seen after the very first day, with the most significant results usually occurring after two weeks of applications.

Porcelain Veneers

If you want to change the shape, size or color of your teeth, veneers can often be the perfect solution. Porcelain veneers in Bothell are a type of conservatively placed thin “covers” that can be bonded to your teeth. They can be made from composite or porcelain/ceramic materials.  For some conditions, we can even place the veneers without reducing the size of your existing teeth. That means no shots and no drilling to create your new smile. Dr. Hsue will start by discussing with you what your goals are and offer several options that can help your smile reach its full potential.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

In the old days, metal fillings were the only option when it came to treating cavities. While they certainly get the job done, they stand out in your smile, making a noticeable difference from your natural teeth. These days, Dr. Hsue, your trusted cosmetic dentist in Bothell, WA, uses tooth-colored material as an option to fill cavities.  This composite resin material can be color-matched to effortlessly blend in with the rest of your smile. No one will even have to know you ever had a cavity!

Six Month Smiles™

Maybe you want a straighter smile, but you feel like you’re too old to wear traditional braces. Fear not, Six Month Smiles might be just what you need. It utilizes clear brackets attached to a thin, tooth-colored wire, so they’re barely noticeable. As the name implies, treatment only takes six months on average, with some cases taking anywhere from four to nine months. This depends on the severity of your misalignment. Still, it’s much better than years spent in regular braces!

If you’d like to straighten your smile without the awkwardness of metal braces, Invisalign may be right for you. These sets of clear plastic aligner trays subtly shift your teeth into a more aligned position over the course of 12-18 months on average, significantly shorter than the two to three years that metal braces typically take. In addition, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You can still enjoy all your favorite foods and virtually no one will notice that you’re even undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

There are a variety of cosmetic dental options out there to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. However, you may be concerned about the cost of your treatment. Because everyone’s smile is different, so is the cost of their treatment. During your consultation with us, we can discuss specific numbers and your financial options. Until then, here are some things to take into consideration.

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

We offer several different cosmetic options. Here are some of the most popular services our patients choose:

  • Teeth Whitening – Teeth whitening can be completed in our practice or in the comfort of your own home with a professional whitening kit. This treatment is relatively quick and one of the most affordable cosmetic options available. You will see beautiful results that can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. 
  • Veneers – Veneers are a more costly cosmetic solution, but they are the easiest way to transform numerous aspects of your smile at the same time!
  • Invisalign – If you suffer from misalignment or bite issues, Invisalign could be the solution you’re looking for. You can achieve a straighter smile without metal brackets and wires. However, this is an investment and usually costs several thousands of dollars.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Cosmetic dental treatments may seem costly at first, but it’s important to remember that they are an investment in the future of your smile, so you will reap the benefits for many years to come. Showing off a smile that you’re proud of can make you feel more confident and improve your self-esteem. This can result in better relationships, a more vibrant social life, better professional achievements, and an improved quality of life!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Cosmetic dental treatments are rarely covered by dental insurance because they are usually considered to be elective procedures. However, this doesn’t mean that you will be left completely on your own. We accept payments through third-party financing companies, like CareCredit and Lending Club. This way, patients can utilize affordable monthly payment options with little to no interest. To learn where you can apply or for more information on your financial options, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

To find out exactly how much your treatment will cost, schedule a consultation with us. We’re eager to help you achieve the smile of your dreams!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Some teeth compared to a smile guide

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

People often think that cosmetic dentistry has to be expensive by its nature, but that isn’t necessarily the case. There are a variety of different treatments available at various price points, so you’re likely going to be able to find a procedure that will fit your budget.

Dental bonding and teeth whitening, for example, are incredibly effective and are on the more affordable end of what cosmetic dentistry has to offer.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

We understand completely that patients are often concerned about pain associated with dental care, but in the case of cosmetic dentistry, there isn’t all that much to worry about. Many of the most common cosmetic treatments, like teeth whitening, are painless by their very nature. This means that you don’t even necessarily need anesthetic if you don’t want it.

In the case of more intense treatments, like veneers, we’ll be sure to numb your mouth completely before beginning our work. That means that, no matter which treatment you pursue, we can ensure that you won’t deal with any amount of pain.

What Is the Difference Between a Dentist and a Cosmetic Dentist?

Technically speaking, a cosmetic dentist isn’t a specialist in the way that, say, an orthodontist is. There’s no official certification that you need in order to offer cosmetic services.

However, when dentists refer to themselves as being “cosmetic” dentists, this is usually because they have additional training in aesthetic treatments. Dr. Henry Hsue, for example, is a American Academy of Facial Esthetics, which gives him unique expertise in what cosmetic dentistry has to offer.

What Should I Expect at an Initial Consultation for a Smile Makeover?

If you’re interested in a smile makeover, the first step will be to come in for a consultation. At that appointment we’ll perform a thorough examination of your smile, allowing us to get a sense of what kind of treatments that you could need and what steps it will take to make them happen.

This will involve taking impressions of your smile and using them to model what your new smile will look like, giving you a sense of what kinds of treatments will give you the teeth you’re looking for.
