If you’re looking to get straighter, whiter, and overall more attractive looking teeth, porcelain veneers can help you do it with one simple procedure. A veneer is a thin ceramic covering that’s designed to resemble flawless enamel, and it can be fitted directly over a tooth to improve its shape, size, color, and even alignment at the same time. Better yet, this treatment can completely transform your smile in just two appointments.
All-Ceramic Dental Restorations
In the past, silver and gold restorations have been the norm for patients. While these were effective enough in restoring a patient’s oral health and function, they had a noticeable appearance that ruined an otherwise beautiful smile. Today, our team at Remmers Dental is proud to offer an exceptional alternative: all-ceramic restorations.
With all-ceramic restorations, patients enjoy a perfect blend of both strength and beauty. In fact, their new crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay possesses the same translucent qualities as their existing enamel. There are other benefits including more conservative treatment and increased comfort. Even patients with sensitivities or allergies to metal enjoy these quality products! Best of all, our state-of-the-art CEREC technology creates them in just one visit.

If you’re looking for a quick fix for a noticeable dark spot on a tooth or an annoying chip, direct bonding is able to deliver both speed and quality. A naturally colored composite resin is applied to the tooth, and your dentist will shape it to resemble a normal part of the enamel, hiding any imperfection along with way. The treatment only takes about an hour or less, and the results can easily last for 10 years or more.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Tired of trying to get rid of those coffee, wine, or tobacco stains on your teeth with underpowered, store-bought whitening products? With our at-home teeth whitening treatment, we’ll provide you with a custom-designed set of mouth trays and a bleaching gel much stronger than anything you can buy on your own. Just use our kit daily for two weeks whenever and wherever you want, and it will easily make your smile 6-8 shades whiter.

Invisalign® Clear Braces
For those looking to straighten crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth, Invisalign can help you do it, all without metal brackets and wires. This sleek and discreet treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently shift the teeth into their proper positions, often much faster than traditional braces. People won’t notice you’re wearing Invisalign unless you tell them, and when it’s time to eat or brush, you can simply take them off until you’re done!

SureSmile Clear Aligners
SureSmile Clear Aligners offer all of the same advantages and conveniences as Invisalign, but there is one big difference—the price. SureSmile tends to be more affordable compared to Invisalign, making it a better option for budget-minded patients. The aligners are still virtually invisible, removable, and can be used to straighten crooked teeth as well as fix noticeable gaps.

At a smile makeover consultation, you and your dentist at Remmers Dental can discuss your goals to come up with the perfect smile makeover plan. Combining various cosmetic and restorative treatments, we can help even the most compromised smile look and feel like new again.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
If you’re ready to invest in a stunning smile, your cosmetic dentist in Louisville can help. It’s a big commitment, so it’s normal to have a few concerns about the road ahead. There isn’t any reason to fret. We’ll explain everything during your initial consultation. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about cosmetic dentistry.
How long will the process take?
No two smiles are the same, which means we can’t use a cookie-cutter treatment plan to enhance your teeth. As a result, there isn’t any way to determine how long the process will take without first conducting an examination of your smile and learning more about your goals. Depending on your needs, you can have the results you want after just one appointment, while other procedures can take a few visits to complete. A member of our team will explain the expected timeframe for your treatment. We know your time is valuable, which is why we embrace the latest techniques and technologies to decrease how long you’re in the dental chair without compromising your results.
Can my teen benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
There are numerous cosmetic treatments suitable for adolescents and teens, like dental bonding, teeth whitening, and Invisalign. Other procedures may require them to be finished growing or have all their permanent teeth. We’ll evaluate their smile to create an individualized strategy to create the beautiful, confident smile they desire.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
Since every treatment differs, there isn’t a set fee for cosmetic dentistry. Several factors influence the amount you’ll pay, such as the nature of the procedure, the number of teeth you’re treating, and the complexity of the situation. During your initial appointment, we’ll provide you with an estimate and discuss the amount you’ll need to pay. We are transparent about our fees, so you won’t be caught off guard by any unexpected expenses. We will explain your payment options to keep your dream smile within your budget. Besides traditional payment methods, we also accept third-party financing. Based on your credit approval, you are given the funds you need, which are repaid using a plan that accommodates your budget. We will help you find the solutions you need to enhance your smile without draining your wallet.
Can I use my dental insurance to pay for cosmetic dentistry?
Typically, dental insurances plans don’t cover cosmetic dentistry because the procedures are considered elective, but there are some exceptions. Many cosmetic treatments also provide restorative benefits, like dental bonding and tooth-colored fillings. Therefore, if a procedure is deemed necessary to your oral health, you may be able to use your policy to offset the amount you’ll pay. If applicable, we’ll work on your behalf with your dental insurance to file the necessary claim forms to maximize your annual allowance. Although every plan differs, many policies can pay as much as 80% of the cost of restorative procedures until reaching your annual limit.
