Frequently Asked Questions
What are my options for teeth whitening?
Dental Depot locations offer two types of whitening: chairside and take-home kits. Chairside whitening involves the application of prescription grade teeth whitening ingredients that can dramatically whiten one’s smile in one appointment. In-office teeth whitening appeals to folks who are receiving their first whitening treatment or those who want quick results.
For touch-ups or for those who prefer to whiten their smiles gradually in the comfort of their homes, take-home teeth whitening treatments are ideal. Our take-home kits offer custom trays and clinical yet safe ingredients that are easily applied at home on a daily basis for a predetermined amount of time.
In addition to offering these two convenient options, we provide effective and notable name-brand treatments including Kor, Kor Max, Bleaching for Life, and Venus. For assistance on choosing the right teeth whitening method for your needs, we recommend speaking with one of our cosmetic dentists.
What are dental veneers?
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic enhancements that can produce a complete smile makeover. Many celebrities and other notable public figures have used veneers so that they can achieve a red carpet-worthy smile. Fortunately, Dental Depot can offer the same level of artistry and results that the rich and famous receive.
By working closely with dental laboratories, our cosmetic dental team can help rebuild your smile and conceal smile flaws by designing these cosmetic enhancements and permanently bonding them over teeth.
Dental veneers, made from the highest quality of porcelain, look and feel very natural. These enhancements can add uniformity to one’s smile while also concealing noticeable flaws such as misaligned teeth, misshapen teeth, and damaged teeth. After veneers are bonded over teeth, patients leave our office with a white and straight smile that looks healthy and natural.
How can dental contouring and reshaping affect my smile?
Tooth contouring and reshaping can help a person enjoy a more proportionate looking smile – especially when excess gingival tissue covers too much of the visible surfaces of teeth. When teeth are reshaped, their jagged edges can be smoothed to produce a uniform and attractive appearance.
What is the cost for cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dental treatments can vary in price. Some treatments like reshaping or teeth whitening are relatively inexpensive and produce noticeable results. Those who receive multiple procedures or custom enhancements like veneers will pay more. Cosmetic dentistry is tailored to the needs of each person. After consulting with our dental team, our office will be able to give rough estimates for your treatment options so that you can plan for payment accordingly.
How can cosmetic dentistry improve the appearance of my smile?
Cosmetic dental treatments can literally change the shape, color, and overall appearance of teeth. These treatments address issues such as tooth misalignment, permanent stains, and noticeable damage from chips, cracks, and decay.

Melissa was the dental assistant when I took my 4 year old to her appointment today. We go to the one on Sheridan in Tulsa. Melissa did an amazing job. She went above and beyond to make my daughter feel comfortable. I’m positive she wouldn’t have let them clean her teeth and do the x rays without the support and encouragement Melissa gave. She took her time to talk to my daughter and help her....

I took my 3 yr old and they were so good with him. He was so so comfortable that he let them do the entire exam without putting up a fight. It was our first time there. At his old dentist it took his dad and myself to hold him so they could look at his teeth.

Always hated going to the dentist. Haven't been in years. Went this morning a nervous wreck, but dental depot made me feel comfortable and at ease. Walked me through what needs done and made sure I understood everything. Will be going to this dentist office from now on!
