Have you been thinking about cosmetic dentistry for a long time, but can’t quite commit to the procedures? Maybe you’ve even schedule consultations with cosmetic dentists, but haven’t been able to decide to finally get the smile you’ve always wanted. Why are you stopping yourself from getting cosmetic dentistry? Here are some of the more common reasons and why they shouldn’t stop you.

We understand. Most people have some degree of fear of the dentist. And for many people, it’s all you can do to make your required dental visits. A visit to the dentist for optional procedures seems out of the question.

But we can help ease your anxiety. Many people with this kind of fear have had bad experiences at the dentist in the past. And their present dentist may not be much better. But at Beyond Exceptional Dentistry, we offer a different kind of dental experience. You’ll find that our office is much more comfortable and our staff much more friendly and welcoming than you’re probably used to. Just a consultation will show you the difference, and hopefully help you get over your fear.

But if you still have anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry, including drug-free NuCalm relaxation dentistry to help you feel calm during your dental visit.

Don’t let fear keep you from enjoying a better smile and a better quality of life.


We know that cost is a major barrier for some people. And there’s a good side to this hesitancy: hopefully it keeps you from getting budget cosmetic dentistry, which you might regret. Instead, it’s worth it to commit to quality cosmetic dentistry that will look great and will last.

We’ve talked many times about what makes cosmetic dentistry a great investment. We also want to remind you that we offer financing. We believe that cost should never be a barrier that keeps people from getting the best smile possible.

Google Says  . . .

We understand that all our patients are searching online for information, and that’s good. It’s best to be informed about your procedure so you can understand the issues. But don’t decide against treatment just because something you found online seems to contradict what we’re saying.

First, it’s probably just a misunderstanding–something that’s true in a limited case, but not necessarily for you. Show us the information and we’ll be happy to reconcile the difference.

If you do feel uncomfortable and want a second opinion, that’s fine: just get it from a real dentist, not an online search. It’s a good idea to get a second opinion for any significant dental procedure. If you don’t know where to get one, we can refer you to a qualified independent dentist who will tell you what they think.

Too Busy

One thing that keeps people from getting cosmetic dentistry is that they’re just too busy now. The new smile that they want keeps getting pushed off until “someday.”

It’s an unfortunate truth that anything you put off until “someday” will never happen. If you really want cosmetic dentistry, you have to make it a priority. If you think about it carefully, you’ll probably realize that this has been an excuse to cover for one of the other reasons (typically fear).
