Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from high-quality ceramic that is bonded to the top and front part of a tooth. They are a great option to aesthetically improve the appearance of crooked, misshapen, misaligned, chipped, or discolored teeth. They are a very popular solution because the results are relatively easy to achieve, and the only thing others will notice is the improvement in your appearance.
All-ceramic crowns have created a new standard in cosmetic dentistry. The advantage of all-ceramic crowns over traditional metal ceramic crowns is their ability to permit better light transmission through the body of the tooth, creating a completely natural appearance. All-ceramic crowns are the jewel of esthetic dentistry.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore and improve a person’s smile.
To enhance your smile and easily straighten your teeth without bands, brackets, or wires, EMA Dental offers Invisalign as a comfortable alternative to conventional braces. This technology allows you to invisibly straighten your teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners. Your teeth are moved little by little to achieve the smile you have always wanted.
Tooth enamel can become dull and discolored over time for a number of reasons, but that doesn’t mean a beautifully bright smile is out of your reach. At EMA Dental, we now offer a brand-new concept in whitening and dental hygiene – The Refresh Whitening Spa! We offer several gorgeous whitening options in a very relaxing environment, and you’ll be able to improve the color of your smile by several shades in an hour or less.
Designing a great smile is an artistic and scientific endeavor. These two aspects cannot be separated. At EMA Dental, we work diligently to ensure that you walk out of our office projecting exactly the image you want. We understand the dental nuances that can make subtle, yet powerful improvements. We also understand that no two smiles are alike. Our experience, artistic approach, and use of advanced technology will help you find the smile solution that suits you perfectly.
Would you describe your smile as short, uneven, or overly “gummy?” Your gum line may be negatively influencing your overall appearance, but this can be easily corrected with an aesthetic gum recontouring procedure from our talented dentists. By precisely sculpting the soft tissue, removing excessive material, and revealing beautiful portions of your teeth that were previously hidden from view, we can help you achieve a much more confident look.
Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay. The development of tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, has provided dentists and patients with a safer and more attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings. By precisely matching tooth-colored composite fillings to the natural color of your teeth, a skilled dentist is able to provide white fillings that are virtually invisible. Many patients also opt to have their older amalgam fillings replaced with composite fillings. The removal of amalgam fillings can provide patients with a more aesthetically pleasing, silver-free smile.
Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
Are you worried about the cost of undergoing cosmetic dentistry? Many times, patients are concerned because aesthetic treatments aren’t generally covered by dental insurance. The good news is that we’re here to help you navigate the cost of your treatment. We offer a wide variety of cosmetic solutions to help you achieve many different smile goals. Here are some things for you to keep in mind.
What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?
A lot of the time, patients are trying to achieve teeth that are straighter, whiter, or shaped differently. Here are how some of our options can help:
- Direct Bonding – This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be completed in just a single visit. It’s one of the most affordable options out there and can correct a variety of minor imperfections, like chips and stains. Depending on how well you maintain the results, they can last anywhere from 3 to 10 years.
- Teeth Whitening – This quick treatment is much more affordable than other cosmetic options. In just an hour, you can walk out of the dental office with a smile that’s noticeably whiter. Results last anywhere from a couple months to a few years with proper care.
- Veneers – This certainly isn’t the cheapest option out there, but veneers are easily able to transform numerous aspects of your smile at the same time. This includes the color, shape, and minor misalignment issues. The process can be completed in as few as two appointments, and they last up to 15 years or longer.
- Invisalign – While it does cost several thousands of dollars, Invisalign is an excellent way to correct misalignment issues without sporting a smile full of metal brackets and wires.
- Smile Makeover – A smile makeover simply combines multiple cosmetic treatments for a more dramatic change. It isn’t the most affordable, but it is a comprehensive way to help you achieve your smile goals.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making
Cosmetic dentistry may feel like a big commitment, but it’s also an investment that will pay off over time. If you feel self-conscious about your smile, making changes with the help of your dentist can lead to significant improvement when it comes to your confidence and self-esteem. Ultimately, this can mean better relationships, a more vibrant social life, and a higher quality of life. By taking a look at the entire picture, you can better determine if this is a worthwhile investment for you.
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
In the vast majority of cases, cosmetic dental treatments aren’t covered by dental insurance since they are considered to be elective. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re left completely on your own. We work with CareCredit – a third-party financing company that can break the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly installments with little-to-no interest. Talk to one of our friendly team members to learn more.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Are you still curious about cosmetic dentistry? If so, you came to the right place! At EMA Dental, we want all our patients to have the information they need to feel confident in their smile and treatment. That’s why we’ve included the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry in East Long Meadow & Northampton. Read on to satisfy your curiosity.
Which cosmetic service is right for me?
We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services because no two smiles are the same. That said, the only way to know which treatment is right for you with certainty is to visit our office for a consultation. One of our experts will carefully examine your smile, checking for problems like chips, cracks, gaps, and more. After, we will be able to provide you with a recommendation in the form of a personalized treatment plan. Next, you can schedule your appointment, taking you one step closer to the beautiful smile of your dreams.
Will my insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
Because cosmetic dentistry is seen as an elective procedure, dental insurance providers typically will not cover it. However, our friendly front desk team is incredibly helpful and experienced when it comes to maximizing your insurance benefits. In many cases, the consultation and any restorative procedures you need before beginning can be covered. Plus, we accept alternative financing like CareCredit to make our amazing dentistry affordable for all budgets.
How long will my treatment take?
Because there are so many treatments we offer, and each case is different, it’s difficult to know your treatment time. For example, our brilliant teeth whitening can be completed in one quick and easy appointment; however, porcelain veneers will usually take at least two separate visits. If you need a complete smile makeover, it’s likely that your entire treatment process will occur over a span of time to leave room for short healing periods in between. Your treatment time will all depend on your smile and the problems that affect it.
Will life be different after cosmetic dentistry?
Life after cosmetic dentistry is simply amazing! While there can be a short adjustment period after certain treatments like Invisalign or porcelain veneers, the results give you priceless confidence. Now, you can flash your smile in any social or professional setting without feeling self-conscious about the flaws in your grin. Plus, studies show that a white and healthy smile helps people perceive you as more successful, youthful, trustworthy, and confident!
