Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include treatments like:
While some cosmetic dentistry treatments like bleaching are purely cosmetic, other treatments like veneers, orthodontic treatments, crowns and caps, and even filling replacement procedures can help improve your oral health. These treatments are designed not only to make your teeth look better, but also to help protect your teeth from decay and wear, close gaps so teeth are easier to care for, and improve the alignment between your teeth so you have a healthier bite pattern. That can help avoid issues like tempromandibular joint disorder, jaw pain and headache. Even filling replacement can help by eliminating potentially harmful mercury from your mouth.
No; in-office procedures are designed to be stronger and more effective, and most patients report significantly less tooth sensitivity with in-office treatments compared to over-the-counter whitening kits.
No, insurance will not cover treatments that are purely cosmetic. However, treatments that have a restorative or preventive component may be covered, at least partially, by insurance. If you're concerned about the cost of your treatment, speak to our office staff about financing and payment arrangements that can help you have the beautiful, healthy-looking smile you want.
