Cosmetic Dentistry Questions


Will my cosmetic dentistry results look natural?

Every person’s smile is different. Dr. Kun has had extensive, post-graduate dental school training to ensure that your results will look as natural as possible.

Dr. Kun takes many factors into account when determining the best course of treatment for the results you would like to see. Depending on your facial proportions, lifestyle, age, gender, complexion, and even hair and eye color, Dr. Kun will design a treatment plan just for you.

After their cosmetic dentistry procedures, our patients usually receive compliments about how wonderful they look. Since your smile will look natural, most people will wonder whether you have lost weight, or maybe have a new hairstyle.

How long will it take for me to complete my cosmetic dentistry treatment?

No matter what procedures Dr. Kun is performing on your teeth, from dental bonding to a complete smile makeover, your treatment will usually be finished within one to three visits, depending on the complexity of the treatment.

We want to make sure that your visit to our Whitehall, Pennsylvania studio is as comfortable and convenient as possible. For most of our procedures, your first visit will be a simple consultation where you will learn more about the procedures you will undergo, what you can expect, and when your next appointment will be.

Some procedures, like porcelain veneers or smile makeovers may require two or three additional visits, while others, like dental bonding, teeth whitening, or white fillings will only require one more visit to Dr. Kun’s office.

No matter what type of treatment you are receiving for your teeth, you should have a bright new smile in just a few weeks. After your treatment, you will be able to smile with confidence because you will have the teeth you have always wanted.

If I receive porcelain veneers, what will my temporaries look like?

For many of our patients, temporaries provide such a drastic improvement that they feel like they’ve already accomplished the goals they had for their smile. Although your temporaries may look great, they are just temporary, and the final results from your custom-madeporcelain veneers may astonish you.

How long can I expect my results to last?

With today’s long-lasting ceramics and bonding, many cosmetic dentistry treatments and materials are stronger than the natural tooth tissue they are affixed to. With proper daily maintenance, and regular visits to Dr. Kun’s Whitehall, Pennsylvania studio for checkups, your new smile can last for many years.

I’m looking for a cosmetic dentist, what questions should I ask them?

To make sure you select a cosmetic dentist that will provide you with the beautiful results you are looking for, you want to make sure the dentist you are considering has the training, education, and experience to perform your procedure flawlessly.

Cosmetic dentistry, just like other medical fields, is a constantly changing and advancing science that incorporates new technologies, treatments, and materials all the time. You want to make sure the cosmetic dentist you choose has extensive post-dental school training in cosmetic dentistry.

As a fellow, Dr. Kun has completed numerous courses at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), one of the world’s premier cosmetic dentistry training centers. Dr. Kun continues to further his knowledge in cosmetic dentistry so that you can be sure you will receive the results you desire.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been afraid of the dentist. Can Dr. Kun help me with this?

Yes. Dr. Kun has undergone numerous courses to ensure that your cosmetic dentistry procedure will be completed as quickly and easily as possible. He is also equipped to provide you with relaxation dentistry so that you can visit his cosmetic dentistry office without fear or anxiety, allowing you to have your appointment while being completely relaxed.

How will my new smile have an impact on the rest of my life?

All too often, we have patients that burst into tears at the sight of their new smile because Dr. Kun has made such a drastic improvement to their teeth. For many of these patients, they are so proud of their new smile that they cannot help showing it off!

We see patients that were once shy, blossom into social butterflies, professionals having greater success in their careers, and older patients who look and feel like they are years younger! A beautiful new smile can have a huge impact on your self-confidence as well as your appearance, allowing you to live and look the way you have always wanted.

Will my procedure be paid for by my dental insurance?

For the most part, cosmetic treatments are considered elective, no matter how desperately you feel you need them. As a result, dental insurance will not always pay for the cost of the procedure.

Dr. Kun and his team will help you review your dental insurance plan and determine if your procedure will be covered by your policy. Sometimes, your insurance will pay for part of the cost, but you should be prepared to pay for most, if not all, of the procedure yourself.

Dr. Kun is proud to offer all his patients with financing options so that their cosmetic dentistry procedure fits comfortably within their budget.

What kind of payment options does Dr. Kun provide?

Dr. Kun provides all his patients with a variety of payment options so that they can pay for their cosmetic dentistry procedure as easily as possible.

Whether it is check, credit card, or even third party financing, Dr. Kun will help you find a way to pay for the cosmetic dentistry procedure you want. You can discuss all your financing options with Dr. Kun and his team during your consultation.

What results can I expect?

The results you can expect from your cosmetic dentistry treatment will depend on your unique dental situation and the procedures Dr. Kun suggests you undergo. If you would like to correct multiple teeth, porcelain veneers can provide you with a completely new smile, whereas dental bonding is usually used to correct just one or two teeth.

Dr. Kun will discuss the results you will see during your consultation, but for the most part, our patients benefit from wonderful new smiles that they can be proud of, giving them a boost in self-confidence.

Dr. Kun graduated from the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, and has the experience and training to assess your smile and determine the treatment that will best accomplish your cosmetic dentistry goals.
