Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

by Tzur Gabi, DMD

What types of cosmetic procedures are there?

Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include treatments like:

  • whitening and bleaching to improve the color of teeth
  • Invisalign for straightening teeth
  • veneers, caps and crowns for covering defects like chips, cracks and uneven wear and correcting gaps tooth-colored fillings to replace darker filings of metal amalgam materials

Can my cosmetic treatments help my teeth and gums stay healthy?

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.

Is an over-the-counter whitening product as effective as in-office whitening procedures?

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.

Will my insurance pay for cosmetic dentistry treatments?

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.
