Many people spend their whole lives unhappy with their smiles; for these patients, cosmetic dentistry can be a life-changing experience. If you’re careful not to show your teeth when you smile, take great pains to avoid getting your picture taken, and feel like people might judge you for the way your teeth look, it’s time to invest in yourself and create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
One of our practice’s specialties is cosmetic dentistry. With advances in dental technology, we’re able to transform smiles in ways we never would have thought possible just a few short years ago. Whether you need a complete smile makeover or a small imperfection corrected on a single tooth, you’ll leave our office with a renewed sense of confidence.
We offer the following cosmetic dental treatments at our practice:
As we age, our teeth often yellow and begin to accumulate stains. Drinking coffee, tea, or red wine, smoking, and even some medications can accelerate this process. Teeth whitening can dramatically improve your smile, giving you a more youthful, vibrant appearance. We offer both in-office and at-home bleaching treatments.
Instead of relying on traditional metal brackets and wires, Invisalign corrects bites and straightens teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are comfortable, convenient, and discreet, making Invisalign an excellent choice for orthodontic treatment.
Porcelain veneers are made with thin layers of porcelain to mimic the layers of enamel on real teeth for a natural appearance. We use veneers to correct a variety of cosmetic imperfections, ranging from chips to discoloration. A small amount of enamel is removed, then the veneer is bonded directly onto the affected tooth.
Cosmetic bonding involves using a tooth-colored resin to fill in chips, smooth minor cracks, and cover over discoloration. Bonding is often used as a less expensive alternative to dental veneers.
Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is generally any dental procedure that focuses on the appearance of the teeth, rather than the health. That said, there are many dental procedures that improve both the health and aesthetics of the teeth, including crowns and dental implants.
What can cosmetic dentistry fix?
Cosmetic dentistry can fix almost any aesthetic issue involving the teeth. There are cosmetic procedures that can:
- Close gaps between two teeth
- Adjust the length and size of teeth for a more uniform appearance
- Whiten teeth that are stained or yellow
- Fill in chips
- Straighten misaligned teeth
Does any insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
Insurance generally does not cover cosmetic dentistry or any other dental procedure that doesn’t directly improve oral health. Some procedures that offer both aesthetic and health benefits, like crowns and Invisalign, may be at least partially covered by dental insurance.
Is it too late to fix my teeth?
It’s never too late to improve your smile and feel more confident about your appearance. We’ve performed cosmetic dental treatments for many older patients and without exception, they are thrilled with the results.
How do people afford cosmetic dentistry?
We offer financing with CareCredit to help you pay for cosmetic dental procedures. CareCredit offers low monthly payments and reasonable interest rates to help put cosmetic dentistry within reach no matter your budget.
