Prioritizing Our Patients' Health & Safety 

Dear patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
 
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
 
• If you are sick or concerned you might be sick, please cancel your appointment. You will not be penalized in any way for the cancellation, even at the last minute.
 
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. When you get to the office, you are asked to remain in your car and call our office number 972-412-5064. A staff member will come out to you and you will be asked those same screening questions again and have your temperature taken before entering the office.
 
• If you are a new patient, we would really appreciate you using the online patient portal to fill out paperwork prior to your appointment.
 
• We will ask you to immediately wash your hands with soap and water when you enter the office.
 
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. There will also be very few chairs present to avoid crowds in the waiting room. Computers will have disposable covers and counter tops, door handles, waiting room chairs and surfaces will be disinfected with increased frequency.
 
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We will also ask that only the patient, and in necessary cases a legal guardian, enter the office. Older children and adults are requested to experience their appointments alone while family members remain in the car and/or waiting room.
 
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
 
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 972-412-5064 or visit our website at www.mymouthdental.com.  
 
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Montoya and Team

The Cost of Lumineers

Lumineers® are an excellent option for patients who want to address chips, cracks, or other cosmetic flaws in their smile. These ultra thin, minimal prep porcelain veneers can dramatically enhance your smile without altering the structure of your teeth. On average, Lumineers cost between $800 and $2,000 per tooth. The price of your treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the complexity and extent of your procedure, your dentist’s experience, and your geographical location.

The cost of treatment with Lumineers can vary dramatically based on the specifics of your case. 

Extent of Treatment

One major factor that affects how much your Lumineers will cost is how many teeth you want to treat. Placing a veneer on a single tooth is a much less expensive procedure than restoring all of your front teeth. The number of veneers you need will depend on your goals and your budget. Your dentist can make recommendations based on your desired results.

Treatment Complexity

Lumineers are a versatile treatment that can address a range of cosmetic issues, from minor chips to gaps and crooked teeth. When veneers are used to address more straightforward concerns such as discoloration, they will likely cost less than if they are used to conceal more complex issues. In addition, if you have underlying health issues like periodontal disease, you will need to undergo preliminary treatment. Additional procedures can increase your final treatment cost.

On average, Lumineers cost between $800 and $2,000 per tooth.

Lab Fees

In general, lab fees for Lumineers are slightly more expensive than traditional veneers. This price difference is due to the complex fabrication methods required to create ultra thin porcelain shells that can withstand daily wear and tear. However, the design of Lumineers allows your dentist to place them without making significant alterations to your teeth, saving you on tooth reshaping costs and anesthesia fees. 

Dentist Experience

As with all dentistry procedures, the skill and reputation of your dentist can affect your treatment price. Typically, more experienced practitioners will charge more for their procedures. However, choosing a dentist who has experience placing Lumineers can save you money in the future. Correct placement can help you avoid issues with your bite as well as future repair and replacement costs. You should always choose a reputable dentist for your cosmetic dentistry treatments. 

Practice Location

Your geographical location can also affect the overall cost of your treatment. In general, dental procedures cost more in major cities, especially urban areas on either coast. Higher overhead in these areas means dentists must charge more to maintain their practices. 

Why Invest in Lumineers

While treatment with Lumineers tends to cost slightly more than that of traditional porcelain veneers, it offers a unique set of advantages which can make the investment worthwhile. Since your dentist can place Lumineers without altering the structure of your teeth, the treatment is completely reversible. If your Lumineers break or you decide you no longer want them, your dentist can remove them without having to place a crown to protect the tooth from sensitivity. In addition, Lumineers can last up to 20 years, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of your new smile for years to come.
