Below, we’ve compiled some of the questions we hear most often from people seeking cosmetic dentistry. We invite you to read through the questions to learn more about quality cosmetic dentistry in Huntsville, AL.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

Dr. David King our Huntsville, AL cosmetic dentist will evaluate your oral health to determine whether cosmetic dentistry is the right option for you. The type of exam you undergo during this initial visit will vary depending on the type of cosmetic dentistry you’re seeking. Interest in dental implants, for example, may require x-rays if there are no recent films on file. If you’re considering professional teeth whitening in Huntsville, AL, your restorations and gum health may also be a consideration or require a different type of exam.

During this exam, you are encouraged to ask any questions or share any concerns that you may have about your dental health or cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. David King enjoys establishing relationships with his patients, and he wants you to be fully informed so you can make the best decisions for your care and smile enhancement.

What types of cosmetic dentistry options do you offer?

The first step in planning cosmetic dentistry treatment at our Huntsville dental office is to give us a call and schedule a consultation with Dr. King. He’ll sit down with you and discuss your goals and look for cosmetic dental options that are right for you.

Teeth Whitening

You might be surprised to see what a difference a professional teeth whitening treatment can make! Our team goes over what to expect during your teeth whitening appointment.

After carefully considering all the available options, we have made the decision to offer ZOOM! whitening treatments to our patients. ZOOM! gives us the ability to customize your treatment so that it is right for you and your needs. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening so that you can either complete your treatment in a single session or whiten your teeth at home on your own terms.

There are a number of advantages to having your teeth whitened professionally vs. purchasing an over-the-counter kit at the drug store. For example:

  • OTC whitening products are often abrasive and can harm your enamel.
  • Professional whitening products contain ingredients to reduce sensitivity.
  • The active ingredient in professional products is stronger so you get better results in less time.
  • When you choose professional teeth whitening at King Dental, Dr. King can monitor your progress and make sure you are whitening safely and getting the results you want.

At King Dental, we want you to have a positive experience with teeth whitening, which is another reason we don’t recommend store-bought products as a solution to yellow, brown, or stained teeth. We have found that these products simply don't get the job done.

Porcelain Veneers

Ever wondered how celebrities get those flawless, red carpet smiles? Chances are good that they weren’t born with them. Many of your favorite faces have used porcelain veneers to get their beautiful teeth.

These days, veneers aren’t just available to rich celebrities. Just about anyone can get veneers—even you! Veneers can conceal an incredible array of common cosmetic dental flaws, from chips to discoloration to misalignments. We can place a single veneer to fix one troublesome tooth or use several veneers to completely transform your smile.

Dental veneers are the quickest way to dramatically enhance your smile. By simply applying thin porcelain shells to the front of your teeth, we are able to create a uniform smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the best teeth replacement option available today because they are most like natural teeth—both in appearance and in function. Dental implants also help improve your oral health.

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are implanted in your jaw. After several months, the implant bonds with your jawbone and creates a stable tooth root for a quality crown or new tooth that matches your smile. Dental implants can support a denture or a bridge, too.

When teeth are missing, your jawbone shrinks away, leaving you with a sunken or aged appearance. Dental implants so closely resemble natural teeth that the posts stimulate the jawbone to remain vital.

Also, when teeth are missing, existing teeth start to move toward these empty spaces, which may cause bite issues, erosion, and more tooth loss.

Invisalign

Invisalign relies on translucent aligners worn over your teeth to guide them into their proper place, and these clear braces have several benefits.

Our patients who have used Invisalign love it for several reasons:

  • There are no limitations on what you can eat—Invisalign can be removed while eating and drinking.
  • You don’t have to try to thread floss around brackets and wires—Invisalign can be removed when brushing and flossing.
  • You don’t have to worry about wires breaking and hurting your gums or cheeks.

Best of all, when the aligners are in place, they are virtually invisible! Invisalign is a great option for anyone who is in reasonably good dental health and has a mild to a moderate alignment issue.

In some cases, traditional metal braces are the most appropriate option. The best way to determine this is to call and request a consultation appointment with Dr. King. He will examine your teeth and discuss your goals to see if Invisalign is right for you. 

How do I care for my cosmetic restorations?

Following any cosmetic dental treatment or procedure, a member of our team will provide you with all aftercare instructions, including tips to help you care for and get the most out of your new smile.

However, with any cosmetic procedure and treatment, it is still important to visit our Huntsville, AL dental office regularly for exams and cleanings. Cosmetic dentistry will not prevent gum infections or decay.

Do you offer any payment plans?

Our Huntsville, AL dentist works with Lending Club and CareCredit to help his patients get the care they need without worrying about up-front costs. For qualifying patients, these lending services generally offer interest-free financing and easy repayment plans. Applying is easy, and you will usually get a response within a few minutes. A member of our friendly team will be happy to walk you through the process.

We also have our own in-office financing plan—King Dental In-House Dental Savings Plan. This service includes twice-yearly dental exams, periodic x-rays as needed, and discounts on other services. Contact our team to learn more.
