Cosmetic Dental Bonding
If the overall beauty of your smile is being affected by a small chip, crack, or gap between your teeth, dental bonding is a cost-effective and fast cosmetic treatment that can help. Using a composite resin that’s custom-shaded to match the color of your enamel, Dr. Drisdale will rebuild the broken-off portion of your teeth to complete your smile. That way, you can let your grin show without feeling self-conscious about your dental damage.

ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening
Dental stains and discoloration happen over time for a variety of reasons, including genetics, certain medications, and drinking stain-causing beverages like red wine or coffee. Whatever the case, many patients find themselves dissatisfied with their stained teeth. Thankfully, Dr. Drisdale can restore a smile’s former glory with one of our whitening services.
If you have a big event coming up that you'd like to look your best, deep bleaching may be your preferred option. This procedure involves an a little over an hour-long bleaching and conditioning appointment at our dental office that jump starts your teeth whitening procedure. This is followed by a week or two of treatment at night with your own, customized whitening trays. Our take-home kits include concentrated bleaching gel and oral trays that will show you beautiful, dramatic results in a couple of weeks.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
Many patients aren’t sure whether they can afford cosmetic dentistry, especially since it isn’t covered by dental insurance most of the time. Dr. Drisdale and the rest of our Midland dental team can help you navigate your needs for cosmetic dental care and figure out the best way to help you achieve your smile goals while also staying within your budget. Remember that different services will naturally have different price points; figuring out exactly what you want is crucial for calculating the final cost of your cosmetic treatment.
Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?
Before we can make any recommendations, we need to know what you’re trying to accomplish. Do you want whiter teeth? Are you trying to make your smile look straighter? Do you want to cover up any dental damage? Are there differently shaped or sized teeth that need to be addressed? Think carefully about what changes you want to make and let us know during your cosmetic consultation so that we can recommend the appropriate services and give you an idea of the cost.
Some of the most common cosmetic treatments include:
- Cosmetic Bonding: This type of treatment is great for small changes, like hiding minor cracks and discolored spots. It’s one of the cheapest cosmetic services available, although it may not last as long as other options.
- Teeth Whitening: Professional whitening tends to be in the mid-range in terms of cost compared to other cosmetic treatments. It’s a great choice for those who want to brighten their smile, but if there are other kinds of changes you want to make, you’ll need to explore other options.
- Veneers: Veneers tend to be more costly than direct bonding, but it’s balanced out by the fact that they can last much longer – often over a decade – if cared for properly. We often recommend veneers for patients who want to make multiple improvements to their smile at once.
Investing in a Better Smile
Don’t think of cosmetic dentistry as a potentially costly process. Instead, consider each treatment an investment in a better smile that will pay for itself in various ways as time goes on. People who are happy with the way their teeth look tend to smile more often and are overall more confident when interacting with others. This can benefit your relationships, your social life, your career, and even the overall quality of your life.
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
While cosmetic services usually aren’t covered by dental insurance, they can still be eligible for third-party financing. With CareCredit, you can split the cost of your cosmetic care into a number of budget-friendly payments with little to no interest. We can go into more detail about CareCredit and other options for paying for cosmetic dentistry during your initial consultation.
