Understanding Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry are elective procedures designed to fix superficial or exterior issues with teeth. This includes:
- fixing gaps in between teeth
- brightening a stained smile, or
- repairing crooked or chipped teeth
Generally, these issues don’t affect how the teeth perform, but they can affect how you feel about your smile and appearance.
General Dentistry Compared to Cosmetic Dentist
General dentistry is about maintaining oral health and fixing problems that affect the structural function of the teeth. For example, general dentistry includes
- teeth cleanings
- filling cavities, and
- root canals.
On the other hand, cosmetic dentists deal with procedures that offer people a healthier, more beautiful smile, and these procedures can often improve dental health over time.
Improvements in science and technology have made many cosmetic dentistry procedures faster and less invasive. Laser teeth whitening and gum treatments are generally painless and even with procedures such as having dental implants, sedation can greatly reduce the discomfort of a patient.
Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?
Often, these services are not covered by traditional dental insurance but may be covered by a health savings account, and our team can work with you to iron out the financial details.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
We offer a wide variety of services designed to improve the look of your teeth.
We use an enamel-like material to fill in gaps between teeth, alter the color of teeth, and fix the appearance of misshapen teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers, this procedure typically requires one appointment as opposed to several.
Our dentists straighten crooked, overlapping, or misshapen teeth with custom-made dental bridges. These bridges can replace entire sections of missing teeth and are offered in a handful of different types including cantilever bridges, resin-bonded bridges, and conventional fixed bridges.
Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic are placed over the front of your teeth, altering color and shape. They’re highly resistant to stains and have excellent life expectancies. This procedure is simply and timely with little to no anesthesia required. The start-to-finish process includes a preparation appointment, a bonding appointment, and a follow-up appointment.
Are dental veneers permanent? Dental veneers are not permanent but have been known to last 10-15 years. Once a dental veneer procedure is administered, it cannot be reversed.
If you or a loved one has suffered from worn away enamel, stains, or medication side effects, our dentists whiten and brighten your beautiful smile with our teeth whitening procedure. This procedure can yield results lasting up to 5 years. Is teeth whitening necessary? Teeth whitening is not necessary, however, you may be unable to remove layers of stain and discoloration from normal general hygiene upkeep. If you’re a coffee drinker, smoker, or just want to drastically brighten your smile, this procedure could be for you!
