What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
The most obvious benefit of cosmetic dentistry is a beautiful smile. Additionally, it also helps to improve the health and function of your teeth by straightening them and making them easier to care for with regular brushing and flossing.
What is a cosmetic dentist?
A cosmetic dentist has completed additional training to expand their knowledge so that they can provide treatments involving the appearance of their patients’ teeth with greater skill and precision in order to achieve beautiful, long-lasting results.
What are my options for a smile makeover?
There are a wide range of treatments available, and our dentists will discuss your smile goals and oral health with you in order to create a treatment plan. Some of the treatments that may be included in your smile makeover include teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, implants and dental bonding.
Does cosmetic dentistry address crooked teeth?
Yes! Cosmetic dentistry works to improve the appearance, alignment and function of your teeth, and there are several types of treatment that may meet your needs, including orthodontics, tooth contouring, dental bonding or veneers. Our dentists will examine your mouth to determine which treatment is right for you.
How long will it take to get the smile I want?
The length of your treatment will depend on the condition of your teeth and the type and combination of treatments needed to meet your smile goals. For example, teeth whitening and dental bonding can be completed in just one visit, while veneers typically require two. We will provide you with an estimated treatment time when we create your treatment plan.
Is cosmetic dentistry appropriate for children?
Maybe. It depends on the child’s age, dental development, and whether there is a problem that needs to be corrected. For example, children and adolescents with severe discoloration or with broken teeth may benefit from cosmetic treatment. However, if their mouth is still growing and developing, our dentists may recommend waiting to begin any kind of treatment.
Are my results permanent?
Your results should last for many years to come as long as you maintain good oral hygiene at home and continue to visit the dentist regularly for preventive care. Some treatments, such as teeth whitening, may occasionally need to be touched up to ensure the best results.
Will my insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
It depends on your dental insurance provider. Insurance coverage and out-of-pocket payments for cosmetic dentistry vary. If coverage is available, we will coordinate with your insurance provider to help you maximize your benefits. We also offer several financial options. We will review your treatment cost with you prior to beginning a treatment.
