- Comfortable, Collaborative Dental Environment
If your smile is littered with different types of cosmetic imperfections, porcelain veneers may be the best option for you. The veneers themselves are made from stain-resistant and durable porcelain, and each one is custom-crafted for your individual teeth. After preparing your teeth by removing a sliver of natural enamel, we’ll be able to adhere the veneers to the visible surface of them, concealing discoloration, dental damage, and even gaps between the teeth. Left in your old smile’s place will be a beautiful, complete, and symmetrical grin.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
Do you have an old, noticeable metal dental crown or filling that sticks out like a sore thumb when you smile or speak? Dr. Goyal crafts his restorations from a variety of natural-looking materials that you can choose from, including porcelain fused to metal, Emax, and zirconia. Once placed in your mouth, our metal-free restoration will flawlessly integrate with your surrounding teeth without drawing attention to your damaged one.
Your teeth can become chipped and cracked from something as simple as chewing on a hard food. Fortunately, for this minor damage, you don’t have to invest in an expensive, invasive treatment. Direct bonding can be completed in a single appointment with Dr. Goyal. First, he’ll color-match a putty-like composite resin to the color of your enamel. Then, he’ll sculpt the missing portion of your tooth out of it and adhere it to your existing tooth. After curing the substance with a UV light and carving it to look like the natural texture of your tooth, you likely won’t even be able to tell that it was ever chipped in the first place!
If you’re tired of purchasing store-bought teeth whitening kits that don’t provide you with the results you’re looking for, visit us for professional in-practice or take-home treatment. Using highly concentrated, trusted ingredients that have been clinically proven to be safe, you’ll be able to achieve a noticeably brighter grin within either one appointment or two weeks, depending on the method you choose. If you ever notice your results fading, you can come back in for a quick touch-up!
Invisalign Clear Braces
Many patients put off getting orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to commit to having metal brackets and wires in their mouth for years at a time. Fortunately, there’s a new alternative that you can choose, called Invisalign. Using discreet, clear aligners that are customized to gently and strategically shift your teeth in their ideal positions, you can correct misalignment, crowding, and bite problems. This orthodontic treatment is excellent for both teens and adults.
Want to straighten your smile without the hassle of traditional metal braces? SureSmile aligners might be the solution you’re looking for! Using modern technology and advanced software, these custom-made plastic trays will transform your smile in a relatively short period of time. Because the aligners are very discreet, you never have to worry about your orthodontic treatment compromising your appearance!
Is the most prominent feature of your smile your gums? Gummy smiles are a common issue that many people face. After working so hard to keep your teeth healthy and bright, the last thing you’d want is to showcase your shiny, pink oral tissue. Dr. Goyal offers gum recontouring, a simple procedure that involves removing overgrown gum tissue to reveal more of your tooth’s structure, making your smile appear symmetrical and bright.
If the one thing that’s standing in the way between you getting cosmetic dentistry is the fact that you can’t see the results until after your treatment is complete, then we have the perfect advanced technology for you. Our digital imaging system allows us to build a lifelike model of your mouth that we can alter to show you what treatments will change and how your smile will look after a procedure. That way, committing to a service doesn’t feel like a gamble.
Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
Far too many patients don’t pursue their dream smiles because they’re worried that they can’t afford cosmetic dental treatments. The cost of cosmetic dentistry in Virginia Beach is rarely covered by dental insurance, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to break the bank just to improve your pearly whites. At Goyal Dentistry, we have plenty of options for making it easier to afford your smile makeover and achieve the confidence boost you deserve!
Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?
People seek out cosmetic dentistry for different reasons depending on the specific smile flaws they’d like to correct. As an experienced cosmetic dentist in Virginia Beach, Dr. Goyal can recommend one or more of the following services based on the changes you wish to make. Each of these treatments comes in a different price range and can transform your grin in various ways:
- Teeth whitening – Whether you choose our in-office or take-home treatment, teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to brighten your smile. Keep in mind that whitening only alters the color of your teeth, not their size or position.
- Invisalign – Invisalign clear aligners are a major investment of both time and money, but for patients with significantly crooked smiles or gaps between their teeth, this treatment can make a world of difference for self-confidence as well as oral health.
- Bonding – If you only need to fix a couple of small imperfections, dental bonding is often the quickest and most inexpensive solution. The results will need to be redone every five year or so, though.
- Veneers – While far from the cheapest option, veneers are possibly the most cost-effective way to revamp your smile. In just two visits, veneers cover up all aesthetic flaws in the teeth, and their results can last for 15+ years with minimal maintenance.
- Gum recontouring – By removing excess gum tissue, Dr. Goyal can restore balance to a “gummy smile” and let your pearly whites shine through. The price can vary based on how much gum tissue we’re adjusting, but since gum tissue doesn’t grow back, the results should be permanent.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making
Cosmetic dentistry is sometimes viewed as frivolous, but correcting the flaws in your teeth comes with several more benefits than you may have thought. For example, it’s impossible to put a price on the higher self-esteem that accompanies a dazzling grin. When you feel confident about your teeth, you’ll be inclined to smile more often, and frequent smiling is associated with multiple health benefits, including an improved immune system and lower blood pressure. Plus, the people around you will flock to your positivity, and you might even advance in your career, make new friends, or meet the love of your life! So, cosmetic dentistry is well worth the investment.

Bring us your questions for your consultation , and we’ll answer them with your specific case in mind. For general questions about cosmetic dentistry in Virginia Beach, we’ve responded to the most common ones below for your convenience. We hope they give you the confidence to schedule a consultation and start on the path to a more confident smile!
Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
In order to be considered a good candidate for cosmetic dental work, you need to have a healthy mouth, meaning no cavities or gum infections. If you have a problem standing between you and the smile of your dreams, we can address it first and then reconsider making changes to your appearance. This is why you need to meet with Dr. Goyal in a consultation—together you can discuss your goals, make sure you qualify for cosmetic work, and plan your treatment(s) to help you achieve the desired results.
Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?
The saying goes, “beauty is pain,” but we do everything to make cosmetic dentistry as comfortable as possible. Some treatments, such as shifting teeth with Invisalign, may involve a little bit of discomfort or soreness, but when we remove a small amount of enamel for veneers or crowns, we always make sure you’re completely numb, so you don’t feel anything at all. With us, you can rest easy knowing that your smile is being expertly and gently cared for.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?
The time it takes to deliver the results you want depends on which procedure you choose. While teeth whitening can be performed in as little as one appointment, other treatments (namely Invisalign) could require a longer timeline. In the case of veneers, you’ll need two visits: one to prepare for them and the other to affix the veneers to your teeth. When you meet with Dr. Goyal, he can explain how long treatment will likely take.
How Long Does Cosmetic Treatment Last?
With the exception of Invisalign, which is supposed to last for the rest of your life, most cosmetic procedures have a limited lifespan. After a few years, discoloration may return to your white teeth. Over the course of 10 to 15 years, veneers can wear down or show their age. However, you can hold onto your results for as long as possible by properly maintaining your smile through daily brushing and flossing and seeing Dr. Goyal at least twice each year. He can make sure your smile stays healthy and beautiful as well as let you know when it might be time for retreatment.
