Why Choose Robert Graffeo, DDS
for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

Whether your teeth have stains, chips, cracks, or gaps, they can all be made to disappear behind a pristine white smile thanks to porcelain veneers. This treatment involves placing very thin ceramic restorations over the front of the teeth that act like masks to enhance their shape, size, and color all at the same time. You can get a single veneer or an entire set to dramatically transform your look, and it only takes two appointments to have them custom-made to your exact specifications.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Traditionally, dentistry used a lot of metal when repairing decayed or broken teeth. While this approach certainly created a strong result, silver fillings and crowns always stick out in the smile, which can easily make someone feel self-conscious. Today, however, Dr. Graffeo can provide smile repair that looks just like natural dental structure. With porcelain crowns and tooth-colored fillings, he can make practically any dental problem seem like it was never there in the first place.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

When it comes to removing minor flaws, no treatment is faster, more effective, or more affordable than cosmetic bonding. Dr. Graffeo can apply a color-matched composite resin to a tooth with a small stain, chip, or gap, using it to build up the enamel. This will allow him to literally sculpt the tooth to perfection while hiding the problem. After hardening the material with a curing light, the tooth will look brand new, and the result can be trusted to last for about 10 years.

Teeth Whitening

If your teeth have become dull or discolored as the years have gone by, you’re far from alone. Certain beverages like coffee and wine and even natural aging can cause the teeth to yellow and stain. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can easily make your smile six to eight shades brighter with a single treatment. At the dental office of Robert Graffeo, DDS, we use Sapphire and KOR Bleaching, two treatments that are proven to eliminate stains that most other whitening methods leave behind. You can have a procedure completed in office in about an hour, or we can send you home with a custom kit so you can improve your look on your own schedule. Either way, beautiful results are guaranteed!

Gum Recontouring

Whenever you smile, are your teeth always overshadowed by your gum line? This is called a “crowded smile,” and it’s an issue we can easily fix in just one appointment. Using a soft tissue laser, Dr. Graffeo can remove any excess gum tissue to instantly make the teeth appear longer and the smile more balanced. Because the laser cauterizes and sanitizes as it goes, the treatment is extremely gentle, so much so that most patients don’t even need local anesthetic to remain comfortable.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dental services aren’t usually covered by dental insurance, so it’s normal for you to wonder what to expect when it comes to the overall cost. Additionally, no two smiles will be the same, so you won’t expect a set price for your chosen treatment(s). That’s why it’s best to schedule a consultation with our team, as we’ll look over your oral health and discuss your smile goals so we can determine the best way to improve your pearly whites. Until then, here’s what you should know about the cost of cosmetic dentistry in Hoboken and alternative financing solutions that can help make your treatment more manageable.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

For our team to determine the exact price, we’ll need to first take a look at your oral health and discuss your smile goals. The good news is that we offer a variety of cosmetic dental services that can help improve your teeth in several unique ways. Here are a few to consider and how they might fit into your budget:

  • Teeth Whitening – By opting for professional teeth whitening, you can effectively brighten your smile relatively quickly. You can either undergo an in-office or at-home process, and the treatment typically involves a mid-range cost for dazzling results.
  • Dental Bonding – This procedure uses composite resin as a cost-effective way to conceal minor dental flaws, such as chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in your teeth. While the results are reliable and durable, they’ll only last a few years before needing touchups, which can increase the overall cost.
  • Gum Recontouring – Instead of altering the teeth themselves, we can remove excess gum tissue to reveal the beautiful pearly whites underneath. This option won’t change the size, shape, or color of your teeth, but you’ll be able to enjoy permanent results.
  • Veneers – These porcelain shells can be used to mask multiple dental imperfections simultaneously. This option comes at a much higher upfront cost than other cosmetic services, but the results are comprehensive and can last 15+ years with proper care.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Cosmetic dentistry can do much more than simply enhance the appearance of your smile. By investing in your teeth, you can also directly improve your oral health (especially if you’re fixing your bite pattern) as well as your self-esteem. With a boost in confidence, people will notice your smile and perceive you in a better light. This means your chosen treatment can have a positive influence on your personal and professional life, making cosmetic dental services a worthwhile investment!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Dental insurance doesn’t usually cover cosmetic treatments, so you’ll need to consider alternative financing options if you need help affording your desired procedure(s). That’s why our team is proud to be partnered with a third-party financier called CareCredit. They offer plans that can split the cost of your treatment significantly, allowing you to pay in monthly installments with little to no interest.


Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Question cards for cosmetic dentistry

Everyone deserves to have a smile they are proud of, and you can achieve it with cosmetic dentistry. It is a big investment, but don't worry because your cosmetic dentist in Hoboken will explain everything. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Learn More

Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?

Cosmetic dentistry is associated with a hefty price tag, but it's affordable for people from all walks of life. You don't have to be rich or famous to benefit from cosmetic services. There are more options than ever to address common aesthetic concerns, which means there's a solution to fit your budget. Various factors will affect the amount you will pay, like the procedure, materials, and complexity of your case. After examining your mouth and learning more about your goals, your dentist will create a personalized estimate. A member of our team will explain the fees and discuss your payment options.

Does cosmetic dentistry hurt?

You don't have to worry about spending a painful day in the dentist's chair. A local numbing agent can be used to keep you comfortable, but it isn't always necessary. Some patients may benefit from dental sedation. While you won't feel any pain during your procedure, your mouth may be a little sore for a few days. You can manage discomfort using an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods. Your dentist will review any additional aftercare instructions.

How long will my results last?

Each procedure has a different life expectancy, and various factors will affect how long your results will last. Your dentist will explain the average lifespan for your smile and what you can do to get the most from your investment, like committing to your oral hygiene. Besides brushing and flossing, visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. A healthy diet that's limited in sugars will safeguard your results. It's best to break any bad habits that can damage your new smile, like smoking, chewing on your fingernails, or using your teeth in place of scissors. Don't forget to wear an athletic mouthguard if you play sports. If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, ask your dentist for a nightguard.

Can I use my dental insurance to pay for cosmetic dentistry?

Most dental plans don't cover elective procedures, but there are exceptions. Many cosmetic treatments have restorative benefits, like tooth-colored fillings and metal-free restorations. If a procedure is necessary for your dental health, you might be able to use your coverage to offset the cost. Some patients can use their benefits for specific steps in their treatment, like any imaging or prep work. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any appropriate benefits. If there's any remaining balance, a member of our team will review your payment options, like monthly installments with little or no interest financing. We will help you find the solutions you need to revamp your smile without spending your life’s savings.
