What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry consists of treatments and procedures that primarily focus on improving the appearance of the teeth. In some cases cosmetic procedures also serve a dental health purpose. Treatments like teeth whitening and veneers mostly enhance the appearance of your teeth, but teeth straightening systems, crowns, and dental implants can improve your dental health as well as your smile. 

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many benefits of cosmetic dentistry: 

  • Improve your smile. Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth which makes your smile more attractive. You can have a whiter, straighter, more complete smile with the help of a variety of cosmetic procedures. 
  • Improve your dental health. Many cosmetic procedures also improve your dental health by straightening, restoring, or replacing damaged teeth. 
  • Gain self confidence. A better looking smile gives you confidence. You can smile more often and feel more confident when you meet new people. You can smile comfortably in pictures and enjoy looking back at the memories. 
  • Have more opportunities. An aesthetically pleasing smile can give you access to a wider variety of career opportunities and even improve your social life.

Services We Provide

We provide the following cosmetic dentistry services: 

Teeth whitening.  Professional teeth whitening provides dramatic, lasting results without damaging your teeth.

Porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin, shell-like covers that attach to the front side of your teeth. Porcelain resembles tooth enamel for a natural appearance that is strong and durable.

Cosmetic bonding. Teeth that are decayed, chipped, or worn down can be reshaped with composite material that matches the color of your existing teeth.

Crowns. A damaged tooth can be covered with a porcelain crown that provides a natural appearance while protecting the tooth.

Dental implants. A dental implant is an artificial tooth and root system that is surgically placed in the jaw bone. A titanium post is implanted in the jaw that can support a single crown to replace one tooth. Multiple implants can support a bridge or dentures.

Bridges. One or more missing adjacent teeth can be replaced with a bridge. A traditional bridge is supported by crowns placed over the healthy teeth on either side of the gap with an artificial tooth or teeth suspended between them. Implant supported bridges are anchored in place by dental implants. 

Dentures. When all or the majority of the teeth need to be replaced, dentures can provide a natural looking, functional set of artificial teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is professional teeth whitening effective?

The professional teeth whitening treatments we provide can give you a dramatically whiter smile while at home or in just one application. The effects are significantly more noticeable than over the counter products, and they are safer and gentler on your teeth.

Why are dental implants considered to be a cosmetic procedure?

Dental implants are the highest quality tooth replacement option available. Although it has significant dental and oral health benefits, it is still considered to be a cosmetic procedure according to insurance providers. Dental implants do provide a natural appearance and function that is superior to a dental bridge, but insurance providers prefer to cover bridges because they cost less. 

How long do porcelain veneers last?

The average lifespan of a set of porcelain veneers is 10-15 years. However, with good care and maintenance they can last much longer. If you practice good oral hygiene habits and visit your dentist for routine cleanings your veneers could last for your entire life. If your veneers become worn down or damaged over time, they can be easily replaced. 

Does dental insurance cover cosmetic procedures?

In most cases dental insurance does not cover cosmetic dentistry procedures unless there is a dental health or medical need for it. Financing is available to help with the out of pocket cost of cosmetic dental procedures.
