What dental issues can cosmetic dentistry solve?

With cosmetic dentistry, we can solve almost any aesthetic issue you can think of. Patients with yellow or stained teeth can receive teeth whitening treatments for a brighter grin. Dental bonding, shaping, & contouring can transform the shape of teeth to fix minor cracks and chips, or to even out your smile to get it back to a natural, aesthetically pleasing look. Veneers or Lumineers can fill gaps, cover severe stains, and fix the look of slightly crooked or crowded teeth. Dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes, though they are reserved for teeth that have experienced more extensive decay or damage.

Can I get more than one cosmetic dental procedure done at the same time?

Cosmetic makeovers involve the using a combination of a variety of cosmetic treatments to completely transform a patient’s smile.

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by dental insurance?

Every insurance plan is different, but most do not cover cosmetic dental care, as cosmetic cases are often listed as elective, or unnecessary to your oral health, by insurance companies. Some treatments, like veneers or dental crowns, may be partially covered by some insurance plans, but this is not very common. Because of this, you will likely need to pay for cosmetic treatment out-of-pocket. To get an idea of the scope of your dental insurance coverage, contact your insurer directly, or get in touch with our team to see if we can assist you with discounts or payment plans, so you can get the smile you deserve.

What Are the Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure due to its affordability and ease of access.  It involves repeatedly applying teeth whitening agents to the teeth, turning them white. This can be achieved by going to a professional for either in-office or take-home whitening treatments. 

Veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored shells that dentists adhere to the front surface of your teeth. They hide dental imperfections like discoloration, cracks, and chips. These shells are impervious to cavities but require replacement after about 10 to 20 years.

Composite Fillings
Composite fillings are a mixture of silica, ceramic crystals, and powdered glass combined with a resin base. Fillings are used to fill the holes(cavities) caused by dental decay. The fillings restore the shape and structure of the disfigured tooth.

Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings that sit on top of damaged teeth to strengthen and protect them. These crowns are strong and long-lasting, and are typically made from durable porcelain ceramic, but can be made from a variety of other materials as well. It’s worth noting that crowns don’t replace the tooth but replace the outer portion that was damaged due to decay or physical impact.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are the most effective solution for replacing lost teeth. These implants consist of biocompatible titanium metal posts with abutments and prosthetic teeth attached to them. Dentists place these implants into the jaw bone, where they eventually fuse with the bone and replace your natural teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry?

Improves Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry improves your smile, which is one of, if not your most noticeable feature. You can share your cosmetic goal with your dentist, and they’ll determine the most appropriate procedures to get you that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Great for Your Self Confidence
As mentioned, cosmetic dentistry enhances your smile, which subsequently boosts your self-confidence.  Having discolored or disfigured teeth can be incredibly detrimental to your self-confidence and make you self-conscious about your smile. This lack of self-esteem significantly compromises your quality of life, but cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile so you can conquer the world with renewed confidence.

Improve Your Social Interactions and Relationships
A captivating smile is often considered a key aspect of a person's attractiveness and charisma. When you feel confident about your smile, you're more likely to engage in social activities and interact with others in a positive and open manner. Whether it's attending social gatherings, meeting new people, or engaging in professional settings, a confident smile can help create a lasting impression.

Improves Your Oral Health
Cosmetic dentistry is also great for your oral and overall health. Cosmetic treatments like braces and dental crowns give your straight and uniformly shaped teeth that are easier to brush and floss. This is great for your oral health and prevents dental complications in the long run.

Results Are Long-Lasting
Most cosmetic dental treatments offer long-lasting results that completely transform your life. For example, dental implants last for up to 30 years before they need replacement. Veneers and crowns routinely last for 10 to 20 years before they fail.
