What You Should Know About Cosmetic Dentistry
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the art of repairing and improving the overall health of your smile. Having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances a smile’s appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. We believe that’s important! Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve your smile, while making cosmetic dental care surprisingly affordable!
»What Does Cosmetic Dentistry Include?
- Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
- Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
- Improve or correct bites.
- Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
- Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
- Replace missing teeth.
- Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.
»What Are Fillings?
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
»What Is Teeth Whitening?
Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
We offer fast, safe and effective teeth whitening. Our doctors combine the newest advances in dental technology with proven chemical formulas. This ensures that the bleaching experience is painless, and the results are satisfying.
»What Are Restorations?
Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable. Our doctors can create restorations within minutes in the dental office. This means that many treatments can be completed in just a single visit.
We offer ceramic, metal-free and inorganic restorative options for the best experience that fits your treatment plan. Dental veneers, crowns, onlays, inlays and bridges are important restorations which enhance the health and functionality of the natural teeth.
- A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
- A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
- An inlay restoration is a custom made filling made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Porcelain inlays are popular because they resemble your natural tooth.
- An onlay restoration is a custom made filling made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Porcelain onlays are popular because they resemble your natural tooth. An onlay is sometimes also referred to as a partial crown.
»What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer a natural looking replacement for adult teeth. In addition, implants restore functionality to the jaw, making speaking, eating and chewing easier. Most implants are comprised of a screw that is embedded into the bone, and a post, to which the prosthesis is attached.
»What Are Veneers?
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
»What Are Porcelain Slips?
If you are unhappy with the cosmetic appearance of your teeth this would be an excellent option. These ultra-thin porcelain slips fit perfectly over the teeth making them look cosmetically perfect, white and completely beautiful. An off-white or crooked smile can cause serious confidence problems. Our doctors can offer fantastic alternatives for patients wanting a beautiful smile without surgery, harsh chemicals or painful treatments.

»How Much Does It Cost to Get a Great Smile?
That?s an important question, but not one we can answer until we have reviewed your case and consulted with you. The final cost will depend upon the treatments you have received. Some issues require more than one treatment or different treatments at the same time. Since this is an important question to you, it is an important answer for us because we know what investing in your smile will yield and we want to help you!
Some of our patients choose to pay in full for their treatment and can receive a small discount. However, most patients choose to finance their dentist oral treatment over the course of several months or?even years.
Credit Care is a reputable third-party health financing tool that allows us to offer flexible payment options for almost all types of dental work. Find out about 0% APR for your first 12 months!
»I Have Dental Insurance. Will It Pay for My New Smile?
This is an answer we can help you find out from your dental insurance provider. Most insurers only provide for your biannual cleanings and not any kind of cosmetic work. We will work to make sure that you get the most out of your insurance but also know that we have financing options so that you?re not limited by what your insurer is willing to pay.
»How Long Will It Take to Finish My Treatment?
The answer to this question depends a lot on what kind of treatment you are receiving. We do not want to waste your time by scheduling frequent trips to our office, but we do want you to get the best care you can get which sometimes requires more than one visit. We want you to know that we are committed to working out a plan with you so that you are clear about how we?re going to treat you and how many visits you can expect on the front end.
»What Are Some Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry?
The main benefit is that you will feel confident and happy with yourself. Whatever motivations you have for seeing us it comes down to this: there is something you want fixed and we can do that. You will feel better, your mouth will work as it is supposed to, and you?ll find yourself smiling more. Those are the benefits.
»What Will My New Smile Look Like?
You will have a good idea of what your new smile will look like before we even start working. We have the tools to model for you the kind of smile you will have once we?re done. We even have mock-ups you can put on that will help you get a better picture in your mind.
»How Long Does Tooth Whitening Last?
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said, ?there is nothing permanent except change.? The fact is, your teeth aren?t even permanent. But, if you take good care of them, they will last a really long time. The same goes for your cosmetic dental work. If you care for your investment it will last a really long time.
Teeth whitening is the same. If you want your investment to last a long time, you?ll have to avoid substances that stain like red wine, coffee, and the tar from smoking tobacco.
