Cosmetic Dentistry FAQ's
Every cosmetic case Dr. Lawrence takes begins with a plan that’s based on a patient’s individual oral health needs. To determine the scope of your treatment, you’ll need to schedule an initial consultation to talk with Dr. Lawrence about what you want to accomplish. Sometimes Dr. Lawrence may take pictures and impressions of your teeth to help provide a visual you can use when creating your plan. During your initial visit, Dr. Lawrence will also discuss how long your treatment will take from start to finish.

Yes and no. It will depend on a case-by-case basis depending on your insurance coverage. Generally, if teeth are intact and without decay, then it will be very difficult to get dental insurance to pay for any portion of the treatment. If your teeth are not intact or if there is decay, it will still be hard to get dental insurance to cover some of the cost but we will submit costs to them to see what they will cover.
It depends on what type of work you want to do. Visiting a cosmetic dentist in McKinney for significant treatment will generally cost a few thousand dollars or more. However, the extent of work depends on you the patient. Dr. Lawrence will talk through everything that could be done, but, in the end, you decide what you want to have done.

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to achieving a desired esthetic result while using materials that are biocompatible. All porcelain means no metal. Because of that, you can enjoy whole health improvement, in addition to a beautiful esthetic result.
It depends on how bad the anxiety. For those of you who have a high level of dental anxiety, we can provide for IV sedation. Dr. Lawrence works with an anesthesiologist who can come into the office and provides IV sedation. This way you get your dental work done and wake up to go home. A great solution for anyone who avoids receiving dental care due to anxiety. You just have to remember to bring someone with you who can drive you home. For those who don’t want IV sedation, we have N2O (commonly called laughing gas) to help calm your nerves.
