Why Choose For Beautiful Smiles for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

For patients with more advanced dental chips, cracks, stains, and gaps that can’t be treated using same-day cosmetic bonding, we offer traditional porcelain veneers. These high-quality porcelain restorations are stain-resistant and long-lasting, and they can completely transform your smile in two short dental office visits.

Lumineers are able to deliver stunning results similar to veneers, but the main difference is that they don’t require the teeth to be altered before they are placed into the mouth. These porcelain shells are so thin that they can be bonded to the teeth as is without looking bulky or feeling awkward. This not only makes the treatment less invasive, but it also allows a patient to easily go back to their natural smile in the future because their teeth are still intact.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

In the past, dental crowns were only made of dark metal or bright gold. This made them excellent for repairing broken teeth, but they certainly didn’t look natural! Now, Dr. Sutter can provide all-porcelain crowns that offer the same strength as traditional restorations while also having a lifelike appearance that perfectly mimics real enamel. In addition to fixing damaged teeth, he can also use these crowns to cosmetically enhance oddly shaped or undersized teeth to create a more uniform smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Teeth Whitening

A brighter smile is on many patients’ wish lists, but with a daily dose of coffee, red wine, tomato sauce, or other acidic and staining foods and drinks, as well as other causes of dental discoloration, many patients need help getting a flawless, bright white smile. We offer Zoom2 teeth whitening to deliver a smile up to ten shades brighter in just one visit to our dental office.

Gum Recontouring

Whenever you smile, are your teeth always overshadowed by your gums? Or, is your gum line uneven to the point that it looks like your teeth are all different sizes? These are both very common issues, and ones that Dr. Sutter can quickly fix using a soft tissue laser. This allows him to literally sculpt and refine the gum line so that it provides the perfect frame for the teeth, creating an ideally proportioned smile in as little as one appointment.

Virtual Smile Design

Before you commit to having any cosmetic dental work completed, Dr. Sutter can give you a preview of your results using Virtual Smile Design. Using a picture of your teeth, he can digitally alter it to show you the improvements you can achieve with whitening, veneers, bonding, or any other treatment you’re considering. You can design your dream look right alongside him, and then he can get to work turning the simulated “after” image into your actual smile!

Your Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Plan

We understand that this is a very important decision for you, and we believe that you deserve nothing shy of the best when it comes to the cosmetic dentistry procedures that will transform your smile. Because not all cosmetic dentists possess the same level of education, knowing your own dentist’s background, experience, and training can be incredibly helpful in making your selection.

In addition to his expertise in the world of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Sutter is an LVI (Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies) trained dentist and has received an LVI Fellowship. This means that his skills and command of advanced cosmetic technology are backed by hundreds of hours of clinical postgraduate education, allowing him to offer his patients a special edge in an industry that is constantly evolving. Visit our smile gallery to see the difference that Dr. Sutter’s continued LVI training has already made for patients just like you. Dr. Sutter can show you before and after photos specific to your needs and let you know how many times he has performed your procedure.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, most people want at least one of the following:

  • Whiter teeth
  • Straighter Teeth
  • Differently sized or shaped teeth

There may be more than one treatment that can help you accomplish your aesthetic goals for your smile. Here is a brief overview of some popular services:

  • Dental bonding. This is a quick and relatively affordable service that can significantly change the appearance of teeth. Its biggest downside is that it is not particularly durable.
  • Teeth whitening. Teeth whitening uses a specialized bleaching formula to remove stains from teeth. It is generally quite affordable, with most treatments coming in at less than $1,000.
  • Veneers/Lumineers. These treatments involve attaching thin pieces of porcelain to the teeth in order to disguise their flaws. Although they can be pricey, they are often viewed as “all-in-one” solutions to aesthetic imperfections.
  • Gum recontouring. If your teeth look unusually short or stubby due to excess gum tissue, gum recontouring may be your ideal solution. Its price depends largely on the extent of the surgery.
  • Smile makeover. A smile makeover combines multiple aesthetic services to help you achieve your dream look. It may cost quite a bit of money, but it is the most comprehensive way to address any aesthetic concerns that you may have about your teeth and gums.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Treatment from a cosmetic dentist in Eugene may seem like a big financial commitment, but it can rightly be viewed as an investment. In return for your money, you can get more than a pretty smile. You may experience improved confidence and higher self-esteem. Other people may also begin to see you as being more successful, approachable, and youthful. Indeed, you might be surprised by how much the appearance of your smile can affect your overall quality of life!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Dental insurance tends not to cover procedures that are purely elective in nature. However, if a cosmetic service also has obvious oral health benefits, your policy might cover at least a portion of its cost. This is often the case with metal-free restorations.

If your insurance will not cover your procedure, you may qualify for third-party financing through CareCredit. The application process is quick, and most patients are eligible for credit. You may be able to choose from several different payment plans.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Honestly, there’s a particular treatment available for anyone unhappy with their smile. If you want whiter teeth, professional teeth whitening is an option you can explore. If you have chipped or cracked teeth, talk to us about getting veneers or dental bonding. Rest assured – there’s a cosmetic solution for almost every problem! The only way to know for sure whether you’re eligible for the treatment you seek is to attend a consultation with our team. We’ll recommend specific procedures based on the changes you want to make.

Am I Eligible for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Not everyone makes a good candidate for cosmetic dental work. To qualify, you must be free of cavities, gum disease, and other health-related issues. Once your dental health troubles have been addressed, we can revisit cosmetic treatment options. To see if you are eligible for cosmetic dentistry, you’ll first need to meet with us for a consultation. After a thorough examination, we can tell you whether you are clear to move forward, and it offers the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you might have!

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Many patients are hesitant to receive cosmetic treatment because they’re worried it will be painful. Rest assured, we’ll prioritize making your experience as comfortable as possible! Some services like teeth whitening and dental bonding are noninvasive, meaning you shouldn’t even need a local anesthetic. However, treatments like veneers will require your dentist to numb your mouth beforehand. Although you might feel mild soreness and discomfort in the first few days following your procedure, you can easily manage it by taking over-the-counter pain medication or using a cold compress.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

It depends on the type of cosmetic treatment you choose. Some options last much longer than others, such as veneers with a lifespan of 15 years or more with proper care. Dental bonding generally lasts 5-10 years. With at-home teeth whitening, once you reach your desired shade, you use your kit every 3-4 weeks for touchups to maintain your bright smile. It’s key to remember that oral hygiene, health, and lifestyle habits all impact the lifespan of any cosmetic dentistry option.
