5-Star Reviews from Our Smiling Patients
Very friendly staff! Called and asked if they had emergency walk-ins available and I was able to come in that moment. Got there and was greeted with friendly faces. Didn't even finish filling out papers and was called back and that was an amazing experience as well. I was able to get in and out in under an hour. And when I was leaving they all told me to have a great day with smiles on their faces! I will definitely be referring them to any who needs dental care!View On Google

Featured Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Many procedures in our comprehensive list of restorative and cosmetic solutions address both functional and aesthetic concerns when it comes to your smile. Here are some of the most popular procedures we proudly offer to our Amarillo, Texas, patients:
Dental implants are titanium rods that act as long-lasting artificial tooth roots. Once they fuse with the bone, the posts support high-quality restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures. Our dentists surgically place implants into your jawbone where teeth are missing.
These customized tooth-shaped "caps" restore and protect damaged teeth. Our dentists can design, create, and place top-quality porcelain crowns during one appointment using our on-site CEREC digital software and milling machine.
Dentures can replace an entire or partial arch of teeth. Drs. Pendergrass and Wilkie provide both traditional and implant-supported dentures at our Amarillo practice. Dentures supported by implants are more secure than traditional types and better for your health.

Am I a Good Candidate
For Cosmetic Dentistry?
Our practice in Amarillo, TX, may recommend this type of dentistry if:
You Want an Enhanced Smile
Everyone wants to feel confident in their smile. If minor flaws are holding you back from showing off yours to the world, we can develop a personalized treatment plan that helps you look your best.
You Are in Good Oral Health
Cosmetic dentistry needs the foundation of a strong, healthy smile. Tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health conditions should be treated before undergoing any cosmetic dentistry procedures.
You Have Realistic Expectations
A brighter, refined smile can help boost your confidence, but it's important to stay realistic about your new smile. From treatment timelines and results to aftercare and beyond, we’ll explain what to expect for every step of the process.
Smile Makeover vs. Full Mouth Reconstruction
Which Is Right for Me?
While many of the same techniques are used for both kinds of treatment, the reason for each is unique. A full mouth reconstruction prioritizes restoring oral health and function, while a smile makeover is cosmetic in nature and works to improve your smile’s appearance.
We are happy to help you understand all of your options when it comes to your long-term health, wellbeing, and quality of life.

What You Can Expect
Are You Anxious About Dental Visits? We Can Help You Feel at Ease
If you're concerned that revitalizing the appearance of your smile will cause you discomfort or be a painful process, you’re not alone. Fortunately, most cosmetic treatments are fairly simple. However, we understand that some individuals may feel a degree of dental phobia when it comes to visiting the dentist in general. That’s where sedation comes into play.
Our safe, effective sedation options can give you the peace of mind you’re looking for when undergoing a restorative procedure, a cosmetic treatment, or a custom smile makeover. For more information about how we can ensure your comfort and deep relaxation every step of the way, get in touch with our practice today.
We'll Keep Your Smile Beautiful Our Dentists Can Provide the Ongoing Care You Need
Once you have enhanced your smile with cosmetic dentistry, undergoing regular dental checkups is an essential part of making sure your results last. While daily brushing and flossing are important, a checkup every six months can allow your dentist to detect and treat any issues before they significantly affect the appearance of your teeth or the state of your dental health.
Choosing Drs. Pendergrass and Wilkie for ongoing preventive treatment after your cosmetic enhancement can create a beneficial continuity of care. Our dentists will get to know you and your specific oral health needs, allowing them to provide exceptionally personalized attention that can keep your smile healthy—and looking incredible—for life.
If you want to upgrade your smile and keep it looking great, we want to meet with you. Request your consultation today by sending us a message online or calling our Amarillo, TX, office:

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry
Is cosmetic dentistry covered by insurance?
Dental insurance does not contribute to the cost of procedures performed for strictly cosmetic purposes. For example, if you want to whiten your teeth and enhance a tooth with a porcelain veneer, you can expect to pay out of pocket.
Are practical treatments that will affect the look of my smile covered by insurance?
Many restorative solutions have a cosmetic element, and you will most likely receive some coverage for these treatments. Let's say you need dentures; Dr. Pendergrass and Wilkie will craft them to look natural and provide a flattering complement to your appearance. Since the dentures are replacing lost teeth, you can expect that your policy will cover at least a portion of the procedure.
Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Although dental implants provide profound practical benefits in addition to a foundation for a beautifully restored smile, many insurance policies consider them purely elective. However, you can rely on our dentistry practice to seek maximum coverage for all eligible treatments related to your implants, such as your restorations. Meanwhile, our convenient financing options can allow you to pay for anything that isn't covered in a way that won't strain your budget.
Can cosmetic dentistry fix crooked teeth?It depends on what you mean by "fix" and by "crooked teeth!" In some instances, orthodontics are considered cosmetic, and these treatments can certainly straighten misaligned teeth. Our practice offers porcelain veneers, which are an excellent way to improve the appearance of teeth that are only slightly out of alignment and do not affect your oral health. By placing a veneer over the front surface of a slightly misaligned tooth, no actual straightening occurs, but your smile will have the outward appearance of proper alignment. Best of all, you won't have to wait a year or longer to see the results!
"Above and beyond!"
"Dr. Pendergrass and his staff go way above and beyond! I'm pretty sure Dr. Pendergrass is the most caring, best dentist in the US, maybe the world! I would highly recommend his office." James Taylor, 5-Star Google Review
