Achieve The Confident Smile Of Your Dreams
While maintaining excellent oral health should always be a person’s top priority, Dr. Isaacson also understands that many patients want to improve the appearance of their smile as well. These goals may include brightening stained or dull enamel, altering the size or shape of certain teeth, correcting noticeable misalignments, or even altering the appearance of the gum tissue. Whatever your specific circumstances are, we offer several cosmetic services that can create truly stunning improvements for your self-image! Contact Joe Isaacson Dental in Oklahoma City today to schedule an initial consultation.

Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the number of cosmetic problems your smile is facing, a traditional porcelain veneer or Lumineer can work wonders in creating fast, comprehensive transformations. These painstakingly customized dental restorations are designed to be thin enough to cover just the front surfaces of requested teeth, hiding years of stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and more behind a flaw-free appearance you can show off proudly. Better yet, they can be completed in as little as two visits!
Over time, teeth can become discolored or stained for a variety of different reasons, from simple old age and genetics to a passionate love for coffee. Thankfully, this discouraging dullness doesn’t have to be permanent – Dr. Isaacson can provide professional-strength whitening with the power of ZOOM 2! Here in OKC, our patients are able to dramatically brighten their enamel by several shades in just one convenient appointment.
Metal Free Dental Restorations
When you’re struggling with damaged or weakened teeth that require restorative care, dark-colored metals don’t have to be the norm any longer. Instead, Dr. Isaacson can design the ideal crown, inlay, or onlay that’s beautifully crafted from metal-free ceramics. These materials are so seamlessly lifelike that they actually reflect light in the same way as original tooth enamel. They’re also mercury-free and 100% biocompatible, which means they’re safe even for patients with proven allergies to dental metals.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Many older patients dream of achieving straighter teeth, but they feel like they’ve already missed the boat on traditional orthodontics – after all, you don’t want to be wearing metal brackets and wires in the professional world, right? Thankfully, there’s an alternative method available for correcting noticeable gaps and misalignments. Invisalign treatment lives up to its name by providing clear, custom-made aligners that blend right in with natural teeth while gradually shifting your smile in the desired directions – no “metal mouth” required!
If your teeth appear overly short or uneven, the most likely cause is an excessive amount of gum tissue. Thankfully, it’s very easy to correct “gummy” smiles here at Joe Isaacson Dental with the help of our revolutionary soft tissue laser! This technology can precisely and conservatively sculpt the natural gum line so that more beautiful dental structure is revealed to the eye and any major symmetrical issues are long-gone.
Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
There is a wide range of cosmetic treatments at different price points. Many patients worry about the cost of cosmetic dentistry in Oklahoma City because they know they likely can’t rely on their dental insurance to cover it. However, there are the many different payment and financing options available to help you achieve your dream smile without breaking the bank. Our team will be happy to help you navigate which cosmetic services fit your goals and budget.
What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?
Choosing the right cosmetic dental service will depend on your unique situation. In general, cosmetic dentistry patients are usually trying to accomplish one (or more) of these three improvements: whiter teeth, straighter teeth, OR differently shaped/sized teeth. Dr. Isaacson, an experienced cosmetic dentist in Oklahoma City, can help you explore possible options, such as:
- Metal-Free Restorations – If you have damaged or weakened teeth, tooth-colored fillings and crowns can restore them without creating dark spots in your smile.
- Teeth Whitening – If you’re only looking for a brighter smile, ZOOM 2 professional whitening delivers dramatic results in a single appointment. Teeth whitening typically falls in mid-range in terms of cost.
- Veneers – Veneers or Lumineers typically cost more than metal-free restorations, but can transform multiple aspects of one’s smile all at once. With proper care, veneers and Lumineers can last for over a decade.
- Invisalign – Clear braces can make a big difference if you have significant gaps/misaligned teeth. Invisalign involves a significant investment in terms of both time and cost.
- Gum Recontouring – A soft tissue laser can be used to conservatively sculpt the natural gum line to make it more even or less “gummy”.
Why Cosmetic Dentistry Is a Worthwhile Investment
While cosmetic dentistry can feel like a big financial investment, the payoff can be even bigger. Transforming your teeth with veneers, teeth whitening, or other cosmetic treatments can pay dividends for many years to come, especially if you feel self-conscious about your smile. Many patients experience a huge boost to their confidence and sense of self-esteem after addressing chips, cracks, stains and other dental flaws. Greater confidence can often lead to better relationships, improved social life, and even greater professional opportunities.
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
Although dental insurance usually does not cover cosmetic procedures, there are other options available to transform your smile in a budget-friendly way. For example, qualified patients can access convenient dental financing through CareCredit. CareCredit’s affordable payment plans allow patients to break down the cost of cosmetic dentistry into manageable chunks. Better yet, many of CareCredit’s plans have little or even no interest.
In addition, Joe Isaacson Dental is proud to offer DentPlus, an in-house dental benefits package for individuals and families currently without dental insurance. DentPlus provides affordable access to preventative care, plus it unlocks discounts on cosmetic and orthodontic treatments. Unlike most health insurance plans, DentPlus involves no deductibles, annual maximums, waiting periods, or other such hassles.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Maybe you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, but you have a few questions that are holding you back. Despite its rising popularity, there are still many people who don’t know too much about how dentistry can improve the appearance of healthy but cosmetically flawed teeth. To help, we have put together what we hope is a thorough FAQ about cosmetic dentistry. Still have questions after reading it? Please feel free to contact Joe Isaacson Dental in Oklahoma City at any time to discuss your options in more depth.
How can I straighten my teeth?
One of the most popular options available in cosmetic dentistry is orthodontic treatment. If you have gapped, crowded, or otherwise misaligned teeth, Dr. Isaacson can help with Invisalign Clear Braces. This option uses clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their proper alignment. Invisalign trays are made out of heavy-duty plastic that is practically invisible. This means that while your close friends and family may know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, others should be none the wiser. The average Invisalign treatment lasts from 12 to 18 months, depending on the complexity of your case.
What teeth whitening options do you offer?
Teeth whitening is a wonderful way to quickly improve the appearance of the teeth that show when you smile. Using a high-powered gel and a customized approach, Dr. Isaacson can brighten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single visit to our office.
We offer two options for teeth whitening: in-office with ZOOM! 2 Whitening and a take-home kit that is completed over the course of about two weeks. This way, you can whiten your teeth at the pace that you are most comfortable with.
What can I do about my small teeth?
A beautiful smile is all about proportions, and if your teeth look too small in comparison to your gum tissue or the rest of your smile, then Dr. Isaacson can help. Lumineers are wafer-thin coverings that are bonded onto the front side of the teeth that show when you smile. Here, they can improve the size, shape, and color of your tooth enamel. Lumineers are completed in one to two visits to our office and can last for many years with the help of proper maintenance.
Another option for this type of correction is cosmetic bonding. This treatment allows your dentist to add to missing or damaged tooth enamel without having to take away from or cover up what is there. Cosmetic bonding also offers a more affordable alternative compared to Lumineers.
What if I have a gummy smile?
Speaking of proportions, people who have too much gum tissue or an uneven gum line may need to have laser gum recontouring performed. With the precision of our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser, Dr. Isaacson can easily zap away at the excess or uneven tissue to help you smile with full confidence at every opportunity. Stitches and sutures are not required with this method, and the recovery process is typically quick. Most patients can go right back to work after having it performed.
