Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of benefits:

  • Improve your smile. The ultimate goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your smile. Cosmetic dental treatments and procedures can whiten your teeth, cover imperfections, straighten your teeth, and even replace missing teeth.
  • Feel more confident. A better looking smile can give you confidence you never had before. You can smile more often, feel good about meeting new people, and even advance your career. A smile transformation can be life changing.
  • Quick and easy procedures. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can be brief and simple. Just a short time in the dental chair can make vast improvements in your smile.
  • Dental and oral health benefits. Some cosmetic procedures also improve the health of your teeth, such as crowns, dental implants, and Invisalign.

Procedures Offered

We provide the following cosmetic dentistry services:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

We offer a range of both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. In-office teeth whitening can be done in just one appointment. For take-home teeth whitening we will design a custom fit tray for you to use at home when you apply the whitening agent. Professional grade teeth whitening is a safe and effective method that provides more dramatic results than over the counter products.

Veneers

Dental Veneers

Veneers are a natural-looking cosmetic treatment that can cover a multitude of smile imperfections including gaps, chips, uneven tooth length, and discolorations.

These thin, shell-like porcelain covers attach to the front side of your teeth to make your smile look like new. Porcelain veneers resemble tooth enamel for a natural look.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding can improve the aesthetics of the smile by applying a tooth-colored composite material to correct smile imperfections.

Advantages of bonding:

  • Less expensive treatment compared to other cosmetic options
  • Faster treatment that typically takes less than one hour to complete
  • Preserves the tooth’s natural structure and strength

Cosmetic Services May Also Include:

Dental Crowns

A crown is a protective covering for a tooth that is damaged in some way, whether severely decayed, chipped, or cracked. The existing enamel is reduced to make room for the crown and the natural root of the tooth remains in place.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a prosthetic used to replace one or more missing adjacent teeth. It consists of two crowns that are placed over the existing teeth on either side of the gap with one or more artificial teeth (pontics) suspended between them.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in the jawbone. One implant can support a single crown and multiple implants can support a bridge or dentures.

Are You a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

If your teeth are generally healthy but have some aesthetic imperfections, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry can improve your teeth in a variety of ways, including making them look whiter, straighter, and more uniform. Some cosmetic procedures also serve a restorative purpose to strengthen and protect your teeth. We can perform an oral evaluation to determine whether or not you are an ideal candidate for cosmetic dentistry and which procedures would be the most beneficial for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does teeth whitening last?
A single in-office whitening treatment can last anywhere from 1-3 years. What you eat or drink plays a part in the longevity of your results, so limit your consumption of coffee, tea, red wine, tomato sauce, and other teeth staining items. Take-home touch up kits can help keep your teeth white between in-office treatments.
Are veneers permanent?
In order to prepare the teeth for veneers, a thin layer of enamel must be removed. This means that once your teeth are fitted with veneers, the only option is to keep or replace them. Most patients are so satisfied with their veneers they never want to remove them.
Is cosmetic dentistry covered by insurance?
Most cosmetic dentistry procedures are not covered by insurance because they are not considered medically necessary. Crowns, bridges, and Invisalign are the options that are most likely to be covered by insurance. The out-of-pocket cost of other cosmetic procedures can be made more affordable through financing options. We now offer a membership plan that offers exclusive savings on procedures, including cosmetic dentistry.
Why are implants restorations considered to be cosmetic?
Dental implants are the highest quality tooth replacement option. They have many dental and oral health benefits, yet they are considered to be cosmetic according to insurance providers. A dental bridge is an alternative that may be covered by your insurance.
