Beautifully Transform Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry in San Antonio, TX

Truthfully, healthy teeth aren’t necessarily good-looking teeth. Over time, patients’ smiles can experience a whole variety of cosmetic imperfections, from dark discoloration to noticeable chips to sizeable gaps. Instead of hiding in the background of photos for the foreseeable future, consider making a positive change with Dr. Joseph Noble’s help here in San Antonio. Our team offers several cosmetic services that are designed to refresh your appearance, and we’d love to work with you to determine the options that fit your personal goals and budget best. Contact us today to schedule your first visit!

Porcelain Veneers

Dental flaws have a habit of building up over time, making the prospect of seeking cosmetic treatment overwhelming for many patients. In this situation, porcelain veneers could be your best bet for fast, effective improvements that exceed expectations. These high-quality restorations are designed to be extremely lifelike and wafer-thin, which allows Dr. Noble to place them over the front surfaces of affected teeth. Once in place, veneers hide years of stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and more underneath all at once, and their creation only takes a few, convenient appointments.

With proper professional maintenance and at-home oral hygiene, veneers can last for 15 years or even longer. They’re actually more resistant against gradual staining than your natural enamel to boot! Here in San Antonio, Dr. Noble prides himself on creating beautiful, lasting results patients can brag about to their friends and loved ones.

Direct Bonding

Even the smallest of imperfections can consume your attention as you’re getting ready in the bathroom mirror every morning. If you’re struggling with a minor crack, gap between teeth, or stain, direct bonding is a quick and effective solution that only takes a single appointment here at our San Antonio practice. Dr. Noble will sculpt the tooth-colored composite resin material into place over the affected tooth, creating a subtle addition that both looks and feels natural.

Metal-Free Restorations

Older patients surely remember the days of silver and gold restorations that stood out prominently in otherwise natural smiles. While these materials may still be the right choices for some patients, Dr. Noble is glad to primarily offer all-ceramic dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and more for those who’d prefer a more lifelike option. These restorations are precisely personalized and highly durable; they even reflect light in the same way as your original tooth enamel.

In-Practice Whitening

Do you have a wedding, graduation, or other big event that’s coming up fast? Its arrival may not be welcomed if you’re feeling unhappy with the dull color of your smile. Thankfully, Dr. Noble can help you achieve lightning-fast improvements with in-practice teeth whitening. All the patient has to do is settle in and relax as our team handles the applications of high-powered gel; after just one appointment, your teeth will appear significantly brighter by multiple shades, giving you the confidence you need to smile with pride.

At-Home Whitening Kits

In-practice whitening isn’t for everyone. Maybe you’d prefer to improve the color of your smile at a more gradual pace, or maybe you just need a greater amount of flexibility when it comes to treatment. Whatever the reason is, our team offers at-home whitening kits that are easy to use and highly effective. All you need to do is wear the whitening gel and custom oral trays together for a certain amount of time each day; this can be done when you’re handling chores, getting ready in the morning, or watching TV at night. Within a few weeks, you should see noticeable, beautiful changes.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

It's a common misbelief that cosmetic dentistry is too expensive for the average person, but this couldn't be further from the truth. There are more treatment options than ever before, so there’s a solution to fit your budget. Many factors affect the cost of cosmetic dentistry, but Dr. Noble strives to keep a beautiful smile affordable for everyone.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

Every mouth is as unique as fingerprints, which is why there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to create a stunning smile. Therefore, many things will affect the amount you'll pay, like the procedure used, which can include:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Bonding veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth visible when smiling allows you to correct many issues using one procedure, like chips, stains, and gaps. After 2 appointments, you can have a dazzling smile that can last for a decade or longer using a minimally invasive procedure.
  • Direct Bonding: A composite resin is shaded to the color of your enamel to blend in with your tooth when used to address minor aesthetic and restorative issues. It offers a quick fix that looks natural.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: Tooth-colored materials are used to make fillings, crowns, bridges, and other restorations that look like real teeth. You can enjoy metal-free solutions to improve your smile.
  • Teeth-Whitening: Age-related and surface stains can be improved by 8 shades using an in-office or at-home whitening kit. Your new smile can stay bright for many months or years, depending on your aftercare routine.

Dr. Noble will create a personalized treatment plan and a member of our team will review your estimate.


Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

You can't put a price on the benefits you'll gain from improving your smile. Attractive teeth are attributed to youth, happiness, confidence, and success. You’ll boost your self-esteem and feel your best. You will also give the right first impression, appealing to potential employers for more career opportunities. Not to mention, some aesthetic flaws can affect your dental health. Correcting them can improve your oral health to reduce your overall dental expenses.



How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

You don't have to be rich or famous to invest in cosmetic dentistry. Our office provides various financial solutions to keep our services affordable, including:

  • Traditional Payments: Our office accepts traditional payment methods, like cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
  • Dental Insurance: Most dental plans only cover medically necessary treatments. Some cosmetic procedures provide restorative benefits, so you might be able to use your coverage to offset the cost of certain aspects of your treatment plan. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any appropriate coverage.
  • Monthly Payments: You can pay any out-of-pocket expenses using a monthly payment plan through a third-party financing company, like CareCredit. You can benefit from little or no interest based on your credit approval.

If you have questions about the cost of cosmetic dentistry, or you are ready to invest in a beautiful smile, contact our office today.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Are you excited to upgrade your pearly whites to fit your dream smile? With our cosmetic dental services, you can be sure to appreciate a wide range of options and advantages for improving your smile. Still, deciding which treatments to choose can be overwhelming and you may have concerns before committing to anything. That’s why we’ve provided a list of commonly asked questions we get about cosmetic dentistry in San Antonio. Feel free to read on or give us a call to schedule your consultation.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Cosmetic dental treatments should be entirely safe for patients as long as they receive care from a trained professional. Of course, you’ll still need to undergo an initial examination so that your dentist can determine if you’re eligible for any particular service, as not every procedure is viable for every person. In some cases, cosmetic treatment may not be as beneficial if you have an existing oral health problem, such as decay, gum disease, or an infection. If any of these are present, we can address them before moving forward with your chosen procedure.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

The results of your cosmetic dental treatment will have a lifespan based on the kind that you receive. Some procedures will naturally last longer than others. For instance, in-office teeth whitening and direct bonding can typically be completed in just a single visit, making them incredibly convenient. However, your results will only last a couple or several years before needing touchups. On the other hand, veneers will need two appointments to finish, but you’ll be able to enjoy your brand-new smile for well over a decade with proper care. To make the most of any procedure, simply maintain good oral hygiene (brush, floss, rinse with mouthwash every day), avoid bad oral habits, and visit your dentist for checkups and cleanings.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Are you 100% confident about your smile? If not, then can most likely benefit from cosmetic dentistry. You might be tempted to go for over-the-counter products, such as whitening strips and gel, but they won’t offer the quality results that you can get from your dentist. Even if you have minor chips or cracks in your teeth, leaving them untreated can make you vulnerable to further damage and infection later on. Not only will you be able to improve your oral health with cosmetic dentistry, but you’ll also boost your self-confidence, which can positively impact your social and professional life.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

Since these procedures aren’t considered “essential care,” most dental insurance companies won’t cover cosmetic dental treatments. Still, there may be exceptions in your policy, such as metal-free restorations designed to repair damaged teeth. If this is the case, you might expect about 50-80% of the total cost to be covered. You’ll need to verify the details of your policy with your provider before starting anything, as every plan is different. You can also consult our team, as we’ll be happy to file claims and help make this a smoother process.
