A bright, white smile is something that gives us all a boost to our self confidence. A great smile is an asset. Using the Sinsational SmileTM tooth whitening system, The Smile Anchorage can have your smile brighter and whiter in just 20 minutes.

The Sinsational SmileTM tooth whitening system uses effective whitening technology in their patented delivery tray made from a soft silicone material that allows a relaxing jaw position during the treatment. During the 20 minute procedure, an LED light is placed over the seated tray and the light helps to speed up and activate the gel, resulting is a brighter smile in less time.

The cost of any particular procedure is going to vary depending on a number of factors. For example, you may have an insurance plan that has a specific contracted payment amount, or you may have an insurance co-pay or deductible. For an accurate cost on any particular treatment, please contact our front office staff and we will gladly help you determine your out-of-pocket costs.

The cost of tooth whitening can change depending on the amount of treatment required and other factors. The Sinsational SmileTM system used in our office is very affordable, and we often run promotional deals for in-office whitening. Call and ask about our current price for whitening at (502)243-9200
The length of time that whitening will last can vary dramatically between different people. Drinking certain drinks and eating certain foods will cause differences in how long the results last. Some of those might include red wine, tea, coffee, berries, etc. Other factors can influence the length of time that the whitening will last as well, such as smoking or tobacco use, certain medications that you may take, and your current age.
The Sinsational SmileTM system comes with a take home pen for maintaining your smile. Use of the at home whitening can also adjust the length of time the whitening will last if it is used between in-office whitening visits.
Yes, it is. Research has shown us that healthy and normal teeth are whitened there are no adverse effects from the procedure.
Treatment times vary depending upon the starting shade of your teeth, as well as the final shade that you are looking for. Continuing in office treatments can be scheduled to keep your smile bright and white. Most people will see a big change in their tooth shade after just one visit, but extra treatments may be needed to achieve the shade you desire.
During the procedure, a small number of people may feel a tingling sensation. this goes away once the solution is rinsed off at the end of the whitening. Using the Sinsational SmileTM system, we have had only one or two people complain of any post procedure sensitivity.
The procedure for whitening with Sinsational SmileTM does not have any negative effect on existing dental work such as crowns, veneers, fillings, etc. However, it should be noted that the whitening will also not change the shade of existing dental work.
We do not recommend tooth whitening for certain individuals. Tooth whitening isn’t effective on certain types of tooth stains, like those caused by medications like tetracycline. Teeth that have decalcifications (areas of enamel breakdown) are not good candidates for whitening in those areas. It also is not advised for very young patients (under 14) or for patients who are pregnant or nursing.
The best time to whiten your teeth is right after a professional cleaning. You can schedule your tooth whitening on the same day as your dental cleaning, just call us at (502)243-9200

Dental Insurance Plans

Our dental office is a participating provider for a number of dental insurance plans. The Smile Anchorage accepts the insurance plans of most of the major employers in the area. Notably this includes United Parcel Service UPS, Humana, Ford Motor Company, Yum! Brands, Papa John’s and many others.

Please keep in mind that your insurance coverage may be different that that of your co-workers. Even though you have the same provider, you may be enrolled in a different plan. Hence, plans can vary greatly. For example, your co-worker might have coverage for braces. In contrast, you may have no coverage for those procedures. By the same token your co-worker may pay $25 for a filling. Instead, you might pay nothing for a similar filling. The Smile Anchorage does not have any say in what your plan covers. Call or come by our office. Speak to one of our insurance specialists. They can tell you about your exact coverages.

You Have No Insurance

We know that many of our patients have no insurance. So, The Smile Anchorage has an in-house dental plan for those without insurance called The Smile Program. Firstly, The Smile Program covers twice per year cleanings. Secondly, exams are included two times per year. Likewise, all necessary x-rays are included. Thirdly, there are discounts on certain treatments. Additionally there are no claim forms. Equally important other benefits are explained on our New Patients page.

Dental Insurance Coverage

People often ask us if their dental insurance coverage will take care of the costs associated with any given procedure. This is a question that is difficult to answer through our website.

There are a tremendous number of insurance companies. Each of those companies may have several different policy options. There are also other considerations, such as co-pays and deductibles. Those can vary from person to person depending on their insurance policy.

Sometimes it occurs that you have dental insurance coverage, but there are time-frame restrictions to consider. For example, you may have insurance that pays for a dental cleaning every six months. That would mean your insurance would not cover your cleaning if you visited the office five and a half months after your last dental cleaning. You would have to wait two weeks before your benefits would be active.

Another situation that could occur would be exceeding a yearly maximum. For example, if you had coverage that pays for a crown, but you had a $1500 yearly insurance maximum. If you had already had some treatment that the insurance paid for in the amount of $1400 your remaining insurance is just $100. You would have just that $100 remaining that the insurance would pay, unless you wait until your insurance reset for a new year. That time reset could be on a calendar basis, or a policy basis.

Another factor that could weigh on payments made by insurance is that of pre-determination. For example, let’s assume you have coverage for a crown. You have a tooth where you dislike the appearance. We determine that a crown is the best way to solve the problem. Your insurance may consider the procedure to be cosmetic in nature, and your policy may have an exclusion for cosmetic work done to your teeth. In these situations, we can submit your claim to your insurance provider before the work is done in order to determine if the proposed work would be covered bu your policy.

All of these factors are person specific.

In conclusion, the answer to the question of whether or not your insurance covers a specific treatment is “maybe”. So , if you would like to know if your insurance covers a specific treatment, call our office at (502)243-9200. Or, take a short drive to our office in East Louisville and one of our insurance specialists will help you understand your policy coverage.
