Metal-Free Dental Restorations

In the past, repairing your teeth often meant also altering your smile’s appearance, as is the case with noticeable metal fillings and crowns. However, at South Windsor Dental, we have a variety of metal-free restorations that can rebuild your teeth and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Using all-porcelain crowns, we can repair chipped, cracked, decayed, and severely damaged teeth and make them look like nothing ever happened to them.

For smaller cavities, we can utilize tooth-colored fillings. Rather than using dark gray amalgam, these fillings are made of a composite resin that can be specially shaded to perfectly match your natural tooth color, making them practically invisible. And, for a quick fix for small chips and gaps, we can use a treatment called direct bonding. For this, Dr. Curcio will apply a liquid composite resin to your tooth, and layer by layer, sculpt away any imperfections it might have in color and/or shape. It takes less than an hour and results easily last for 10 years or more.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Are your teeth looking a bit more yellow than white lately? Want that to change? Rather than relying on a generic whitening treatment, you can just buy at the store, our practice can provide you with your own custom-made kit. In it, we’ll include a set of mouth trays designed to fit your exact smile and a whitening gel much stronger than anything you can buy on your own. You’ll simply need to wear the trays with the gel for about 30 minutes a day for 2 weeks to see complete results, though we bet you’ll notice a difference after just one treatment. With our kit, you can make your smile up to 8 shades whiter in the comfort of your own home!

With cosmetic dentistry at South Windsor Dental, you can boost your confidence with a bright, new smile. To explore how we can give you the smile you’ve always wanted, schedule a consultation today.

Icon Treatment

Do you have white spots on your teeth? It’s not a very desirable look, meaning you’re probably looking for ways to address it.  If you have uneven discoloration because of fluorosis or dental trauma, you can ask our team about Icon treatment. This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a special resin to give your smile a more even appearance. Resin soaks into the enamel, filling in areas without adequate mineralization, turning your grin into one you’ll proudly show off.

As you consider how you want to enhance your smile, one of the more prominent pieces you’ll likely keep at the forefront of your mind is how much you can expect to pay for a fully transformed appearance. You want to be rid of the chips and cracks that are plaguing your smile but at what cost? It’s natural to have questions about the investment you’ll be making should you choose to move forward, which is why we encourage you to review the following information concerning the cost of cosmetic dentistry in South Windsor.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

There are many options to choose from at South Windsor Dental. To help you narrow your selections, here is a brief breakdown of each and their varying price points:

  • Veneers: As custom sheaths of porcelain (most commonly), these restorations require 2-3 visits to our office and the removal of a small bit of tooth enamel. They are durable, stain-resistant, and can last 10+ years. However, they are one of the costliest options available.
  • Metal-Free Dental Restorations: Treating damaged or decayed teeth with metal-free dental restorations can minimize the spotlight on your smile, but if you’re looking to cover teeth that are badly stained, it can become expensive depending on how many teeth you want to be treated.
  • Icon Treatment: If you have existing white spots, you can inquire about Icon Treatment, as it is minimally invasive and highly effective at creating a more even and beautiful appearance.
  • At-Home Teeth Whitening: While store-bought whitening kits are considered the most affordable method of treatment for stains, they often don’t produce the kind of results patients are looking for. This is why you can opt for professional at-home whitening kits provided by Dr. Curcio.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making

You won’t be disappointed once you are finished with your cosmetic treatment. After all, once you see your results, your physical appearance won’t be the only thing to change. If your self-esteem has suffered because of an imperfect smile, you’ll soon discover that your mental and emotional health begin to improve as well.

This can have a significant impact on your professional responsibilities and opportunities, especially if you’re looking for a new job or aiming for a promotion. It can also help you to feel more confident when preparing to meet others, even if it is a blind date or meeting your in-laws for the first time.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

It’s no secret that most dental insurance companies will not provide coverage for cosmetic dentistry. Fortunately, Dr. Curcio partners with CareCredit Financing to make access to this type of treatment possible and affordable for eager patients. If you are eligible, you can apply for a low-to-no-interest plan that allows you to make manageable monthly installments over time.

Does My Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?

In some cases, your insurance may be able to cover certain aspects of your treatment. We also have simple and affordable financing options to allow all of our patients to experience cost effective and quality dentistry.

Can My Teen Son or Daughter Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry can benefit anyone who wishes to improve their smile’s appearance. However, in the teenage years, looks are especially important. With socializing like first dates, dances, and more, a smile full of imperfections can impact your son or daughter’s self-esteem. Thankfully, Dr. Curcio has a variety of cosmetic services to improve the appearance and health of your child’s smile. She will carefully examine the issues affecting their teeth before making a proper recommendation.

How Do I Know if Cosmetic Dentistry is Right for Me?

Because there are so many different cosmetic dentistry options, one of our services is bound to be right for you. However, the best way to know is to schedule a consultation with our office. Dr. Curcio, an expert dentist in South Windsor, will carefully look at the condition of your oral health, your dental structure, and any imperfections that affect it. After, she will be able to develop your personalized treatment plan that includes information like the number of necessary appointments, price, and more.

I have Multiple Cosmetic Flaws. Which Service is Best for Me?

While it’s difficult to recommend the best service for your smile without examining it first, one of our most popular treatments is porcelain veneers. That’s because they are designed to cover the entire front surfaces of your teeth, eliminating a wide range of cosmetic flaws. Whether you have chips, cracks, gaps, slightly crooked teeth, or misshapen dental structure, our custom-made porcelain veneers can deliver you the smile of your dreams.

How Long Does the Cosmetic Dentistry Process Take?

Because there are so many different cosmetic services that we have to offer, treatment times can vary. Our teeth whitening can be completed in just one visit, and Dr. Curcio can give patients cosmetic bonding in about an hour. However, more involved procedures like porcelain veneers will require multiple visits to our office. During the first, we will prepare your teeth and take impressions of your smile. Then, you’ll come back into our office where we will permanently bond your veneers to your teeth.
