Dear Patient:

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.

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:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You'll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
    • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
    • 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.
    • 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 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 (509) 485-8620 or visit our website at

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Show Off Straighter, Whiter
Teeth with Cosmetic Services

Love your smile with cosmetic dentistry in Spokane, WA

Cosmetic dentistry services at Richard D Weigand DDS in ​Spokane, WAcan transform your smile. Would you like a subtle change – an adjustment to the shape or size of a few teeth? Maybe you want to dramatically brighten the shade? Or improve the spacing and alignment of all your teeth? Dr. Weigand can help, with ​personalized smile enhancing solutions​.

In Spokane, WA you have options in cosmetic dentistry

​Dr. Weigand offers a broad range of general and cosmetic dentistry services. Though aesthetics is a consideration in most procedures, a cosmetic dental treatment is intended specially to beautify your smile.

​Cosmetic teeth whitening is performed in our office by a trained dental team. We utilize professional strength bleaching agents for effective results, with a technique that virtually eliminates sensitivity. This safe, comfortable method provides predictable results in about an hour.

Cosmetic dental bonding is a tooth-colored material made of BPA-safe resin. Bonding repairs chips and cracks; closes gaps between teeth; improves shape, size, or color; and repairs worn down teeth. Silver-colored mercury fillings can be replaced with bonding, too. Cosmetic bonding is completed in one visit, and often numbing is not necessary.

Veneers are the premier aesthetic dentistry option. These thin layers of porcelain are custom designed to fit over the front surfaces of “smile teeth.” Lustrous porcelain veneers mask all sorts of imperfections – in just two visits!

You can look great while getting straighter teeth with the Invisalign orthodontic system, which uses transparent aligners rather than brackets, bands, and wires. Aligners are removable, so there are no diet restrictions and it is easy to keep teeth clean.

​Benefits of cosmetic dentistry at Richard D Weigand DDS

Care is individualized. You may choose a single treatment, or a full smile makeover. Services can be performed at one time or phased in as your schedule and budget allow.

  •     You will probably smile more readily, confident that aesthetic flaws are corrected. That can open doors socially and in business.
  •     We naturally associate dingy color, damaged teeth, and wear with age. You could look years younger with cosmetic teeth enhancement.
  •     Cosmetic dentistry could indirectly improve oral health and wellness. Most patients are inspired to take better care of their mouths to maintain results. That reduces risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Schedule a consultation with local cosmetic dentist, Dr. Weigand to learn more about the beautiful options in modern ​cosmetic dentistry. His number in ​Spokane, WAis (509) 485-8620.

$ 2.75 Billion

It is estimated that over $2.75 billion is spent on cosmetic dentistry each year. Starting with baby boomers, we are witnessing a change in how people age. We are aging more beautifully, and a large part of that can be attributed to modern dental cosmetic services that maintain the youth and health of the smile.
