Why Choose Olga Kandov, DMD – Brite Smiles for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

When your smile needs to be completely reshaped, porcelain veneers are typically the option you’ll want to consider. Simply placing a thin piece of porcelain on the front of the tooth can hide discoloration, cracks, crooked teeth, and other imperfections all at once. Each veneer is custom made so that its shape and color blends in with the rest of your smile. Also, you can expect the porcelain to resist stains and maintain its appearance for many years.

Before we can place porcelain veneers, we normally must make room in the mouth by removing a small amount of enamel. If you’d rather not make such changes to the structure of your teeth, you may want to ask if Lumineers® are an option. Lumineers® are even thinner than normal veneers and can be cemented in place with little to no prep work. If you want, you can even have them taken off later.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

A metal crown can keep your tooth safe, but it’s not always the most attractive addition to your smile. We can instead make the restoration out of porcelain. This material is translucent just like your enamel, and it can be colored to blend in with the rest of the smile. Most people can’t tell a porcelain crown from a natural tooth, so others won’t be able to notice that there’s anything artificial in your mouth just by looking.

Dental Bonding

Composite resin is normally used for fillings, but it can be used for purely cosmetic purposes as well. Like veneers, composite resin applied during direct bonding can cover cracks, stains, and other flaws. However, the procedure is shorter and can normally be completed in just one visit; that means you won’t have to wait weeks to enjoy the benefits that a perfect smile brings. If you’re only looking to make small adjustments to your grin, direct bonding from our cosmetic dentist should definitely be considered.

In-Practice Teeth Whitening

Drinking coffee every morning, smoking, or even natural aging can eventually leave your teeth looking dull. With a professional whitening treatment, you can reverse years of discoloration with just one appointment! Using the Zoom! system, we’ll apply a special hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth. Once we shine a special light on it, the ingredients will enter the teeth and break apart the molecules of the stains. In just an hour, your smile will be several shades brighter.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Would you rather have your teeth whitened at home instead of in the dental chair? If you don’t mind waiting a couple of weeks to see the results, we can give you a professional-grade Opalescence whitening kit. The gel is placed in a special tray that has been designed to conform to your unique smile, and you’ll wear the tray for a set amount of time each day to let the gel work. While you can buy whitening products over the counter, they won’t be nearly as comfortable or effective as the kits we provide.

Gum Recontouring/ Crown Lengthening

The balance between the gums and the teeth is a deceptively important factor for the appearance of your smile. If other people see too much gum tissue when you open your lips, the teeth will look oddly small in comparison. Gum recontouring lets us remove unneeded gum tissue and make more of the tooth’s surface visible. This will ensure that your dazzling teeth get the attention they deserve. When gum recontouring is used to make room for a dental crown, it’s referred to as “crown lengthening.”

Virtual Smile Design

At the beginning of your cosmetic treatment, we’ll take several digital pictures of your mouth as it is now and edit them to simulate the effects that veneers or another cosmetic treatment will have. In other words, we can show you what your new smile will look like before even starting a procedure. Feeling unsure about your treatment? You’ll have a chance to see the outcome and decide whether you like it so we can guarantee you’ll love your final results.

Botox® Cosmetic

Are you surprised that seeing a dentist might be the answer for getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles on your face? With Botox®, Dr. Kandov can enhance more than just your teeth. A small injection around the eyes or on the forehead will stop the muscle movements that lead to wrinkles. (Said movements are not made consciously, so you may not even realize they’re happening.) After a week or two, your skin will look much smoother than it did before!

Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation

Animated plasma cells

Surprisingly, we may be able to help you minimize facial wrinkles just using a small sample of your blood. After spinning the sample in a centrifuge, we can extract what we need to create platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The growth factors in PRP can help the body produce new collagen, which is the key to supple, youthful-looking skin. Thus, when the substance is applied near wrinkles and facial lines, it helps tighten and smooth the area while also improving its overall tone. Sometimes, PRP therapy can be combined with Botox®.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

Are your teeth out of alignment? You can correct a crooked smile as well as other orthodontic issues with Invisalign® clear braces. Don’t worry about uncomfortable wires and brackets; this treatment uses clear plastic trays made specifically for your smile. Over the course of several months, the trays will gradually push your teeth into their desired positions – and unless they know what to look for, the casual observer won’t realize you’re wearing an orthodontic appliance at all!

Smile Makeovers

Achieving the smile of your dreams sometimes takes multiple steps. Depending on how many cosmetic flaws you want to correct and how severe they are, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover, which is simply a personalized combination of several different cosmetic procedures put together based on your desired outcome. We invite you to set up a FREE consultation with Dr. Kandov so that she can start creating your customized plan, and you’ll soon have a smile that you can be proud of.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is commonly associated with gum recontouring; however, the difference is that the former is used to expose additional tooth structure to receive a dental crown. When decay or damage affects one of your teeth, Dr. Kandov may be unable to adequately treat it if too much gum tissue is in the way. With crown lengthening, the problem is easily solved, allowing for the successful placement of your restoration.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding, and other forms of cosmetic dentistry are customized according to your individual needs. This is why the cost of cosmetic dentistry cannot be determined until you schedule a consultation with Dr. Kandov. It is during this visit that she will go over the recommended services as well as how much you can expect to spend on your unique treatment plan. Our team will help you maximize any available benefits you have through your insurance as well as discuss alternative payments options to help ease the financial burden.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

There are many options available at Brite Smiles 4 U. Your cosmetic dentist is trained to perform an array of treatments, each delivering its own unique results. Below are the various services you can expect to consider when seeking to transform your smile:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are capable of changing the complete look of your visible tooth. The size, shape, and color can be transformed, but they are considered a semi-permanent treatment option because of the small bit of enamel that must be removed. Veneers are also more expensive than most other cosmetic solutions.
  • Lumineers: Thinner than veneers, Lumineers are less invasive and more affordable. They are also reversible, as no tooth enamel needs to be removed. They can, however, hide many of the same imperfections as traditional veneers.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: Decayed and damaged teeth can be renewed with metal-free restorations. Whether a crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay, Dr. Kandov can produce a lifelike restoration that fits snugly over your tooth for added protection. These customizations, however, are more expensive, especially when you consider multiples.
  • Dental Bonding: Considered a highly affordable method of treatment, dental bonding is non-invasive and can be completed in one appointment. It can easily conceal minor imperfections without the removal of tooth enamel.
  • In-Practice/At-Home Teeth Whitening: Whether you choose in-office or at-home whitening kits, teeth whitening is popular and affordable for most patients looking to eliminate stains. It also produces greater results than any of the over-the-counter drug store kits.
  • Gum Recontouring: When a gummy smile keeps you feeling self-conscious, gum recontouring can be a great way to permanently change the look of your smile. Using a soft tissue laser, we can remove excess tissue with ease, creating a balanced appearance.
  • Invisalign® Clear Braces: Crooked, overcrowded, gapped, and misaligned teeth can be treated using Invisalign. This process does require more time and money than other cosmetic solutions, but the results are life-changing.
  • Smile Makeovers: When multiple flaws keep you from looking your best, a smile makeover can be recommended. It is worth noting, however, that these can be costly depending on the type of treatments you receive.
  • Crown Lengthening: If you require a dental crown but lack the available tooth structure, we can perform crown lengthening to expose more of your natural tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making

Group of friends

Cosmetic dentistry can be a costly investment; however, the results that you will attain will leave you wondering why you didn’t pursue it sooner. Not only are you improving your appearance, but you’re also taking a positive step forward to make changes to your oral health. When you embrace your new look and feel more confident, you’ll begin to take better care of your smile and body. This drastic change can make a significant difference in your personal and professional life, helping you to meet new people and embrace greater opportunities.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

It is unlikely that your dental insurance company will cover cosmetic dentistry of any kind. Unless it is necessary for a “medical reason” (i.e., metal-free restoration), you’ll need to consider alternative options when paying for treatment. Fortunately, Dr. Kandov offers:

  • Flexible Financing through CareCredit. This third-party financier makes it easy to sign up and enroll in a low or no-interest payment plan. Based on your budget and timeframe, you can spread out the cost of your treatment, so you’re not having to pay the full amount upfront.
  • A Dental Passport Program that is designed for uninsured individuals. For one low, flat fee, you can sign up for a plan that offers many of the great benefits of dental insurance but without the red tape of deductibles, waiting periods, annual maximums, and more.

Also, Dr. Kandov is currently offering patients a complimentary smile makeover consultation!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Whether you are interested in porcelain veneers, Lumineers, metal-free restorations, dental bonding, teeth whitening, gum recontouring, Botox®, or Invisalign® clear braces, Dr. Olga Kandov is a cosmetic dentist who can deliver outstanding results. But before you move forward with treatment, we know you probably have a lot of questions. We’ve compiled some frequently asked questions to help you become more familiar with these services and what you can expect as well as how cosmetic dentistry can most benefit you.

Is the goal of cosmetic dentistry to solely improve appearance?

While it is true that cosmetic dentistry is designed to focus on a person’s aesthetics, it should not go without saying that it also makes a difference in the health of a smile. When chips, cracks, stains, gaps, crowding, and even missing teeth cause a drop in self-esteem, you will also notice dramatic changes in the way your smile feels. Tooth decay, gum disease, bite alignment, and a host of other common dental problems can develop, resulting in timely and costly restorative treatment.

By addressing these concerns with cosmetic treatment, you are not only boosting your confidence and improving your appearance, but you are also taking back control of your oral health.

Is cosmetic treatment available for my teenager?

Dependent upon your teenager’s needs, Dr. Kandov may be able to provide certain services to help improve their smile. Teeth whitening, dental bonding, Invisalign, and metal-free restorations may all be viable solutions should your teen be interested. However, because of the way certain procedures are performed, she makes the ultimate decision as to whether it is possible for your teen to receive cosmetic care.

She will be happy to sit down and discuss possible treatment options with you and your teenager during an initial consultation.

Why is it important to see a cosmetic dentist?

Just because a dentist can clean, examine, and address oral health issues does not necessarily mean they are qualified to perform certain cosmetic procedures. By choosing a cosmetic dentist to have your teeth whitened, veneers placed, or gums recontoured, you are ensuring your smile is in qualified hands. A cosmetic dentist receives advanced training and education on various treatments and procedures.

Inquiring about your dentist’s credentials and requesting before and after photos of satisfied patients will help you decide who you should see for any cosmetic service.

What are some helpful at-home tips to keep your new and improved smile looking its best?

Because most cosmetic procedures are not meant to last forever (except gum recontouring), it is necessary that you take the necessary steps at home to keep your smile looking and feeling its best. Cosmetic dentistry is an investment in time and money, so make sure you’re following these tips:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes using fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Floss at least once a day to ensure all bacteria and debris are removed from between your teeth
  • Rinse with an antimicrobial mouthwash
  • Avoid hard, crunchy foods that can easily damage your teeth
  • Keep your regular dental checkups and cleanings with Dr. Kandov every six months
  • Quit smoking to avoid a higher risk of gum disease as well as stains and discoloration
  • Wear a mouthguard while playing sports or if you are prone to bruxism (teeth grinding)

How long does cosmetic dentistry last?

The length of your treatment results will depend on what type of procedure you receive and how well you maintain them. Here’s an average lifespan of cosmetic treatments that we offer with good maintenance:

  • Porcelain veneers can last for up to 25 years before needing to be replaced.
  • Lumineers can last for between 10 and 15 years with proper maintenance.
  • Metal-free dental restorations, like ceramic crowns, can last between seven and 15 years.
  • Dental bonding results last for about five years.
  • Teeth whitening results can last for up to a year when avoiding consuming stain-causing foods and beverages.
  • Gum recontouring results last a lifetime.
  • BOTOX® results last for between three and six months.
  • Invisalign results last for a lifetime with proper retainer usage.

Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?

The reason cosmetic dentistry is considered expensive is because most dental insurance plans don’t cover it. However, at Brite Smiles 4U, we offer easy ways to pay, like discounts through our Dental Passport Program and financing through CareCredit. This allows you to save on treatments and easily fit any out-of-pocket cost into your monthly budget.

Is cosmetic dentistry safe?

When you receive cosmetic dental treatments from experienced and trained professionals, like Dr. Olga Kandov, you can trust that it will be completely safe and yield the best possible results. Dr. Kandov prides herself on offering the highest quality of dentistry, which is why she regularly undergoes advanced, specialized trainings and is a proud member of several professional organizations, including the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.

She is also certified in Phlebotomy, PRP, and PRF, Invisalign, Laser Surgery, BOTOX® and dermal fillers, and facial rejuvenation.

Does cosmetic dentistry hurt?

Receiving cosmetic treatment shouldn’t be painful, although for certain procedures, you may experience some slight sensitivity and discomfort afterward. Before the process begins, if necessary, Dr. Kandov will inject a local anesthetic into the area to numb it. However, in many cases, like with teeth whitening, Invisalign, BOTOX, and more, no numbing is necessary because the treatments are virtually pain-free.
