Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are an excellent procedure for patients who have several types of imperfections littering their smile, but don’t want to have to receive multiple treatments. It’s a one-stop-shop for gaps, chips and cracks, discoloration, and even slight misalignment. The veneers are made to fit over the visible surface of individual teeth to conceal imperfections and reveal a bright, symmetrical, and complete row of teeth in their place. They’re also made from dental porcelain, which is a stain-resistant, durable dental material that can be customized to be virtually indistinguishable from your natural tooth enamel.

If you have an outdated metal crown that you’d like to have replaced because it’s the first thing people notice about you when you smile or laugh, we’ve got you covered. We offer high-quality, customized dental crowns crafted from zirconia, ceramic, or other materials that are biocompatible and blend in with the rest of your grin. We can even craft them in-office within a single visit using CEREC technology, making the process more convenient.

Gum Recontouring

When you look at your smile in the mirror, do you feel like your healthy teeth are completely overshadowed by pink gum tissue? Gummy smiles are a common cosmetic imperfection that many patients come to us wanting to treat. With gum recontouring, we’re able to alter the smile line to show more of your dental structure by removing overgrown tissue. We use a soft tissue laser to complete this process, which eliminates the need for a scalpel and sutures.

Virtual Smile Design

If the one thing that’s standing in your way of investing in cosmetic treatment is the fact that you won’t be able to see the results of the procedure until after they’re permanent, then you’ll love virtual smile design. This is a special software that we use to build a digital, 3D model of your mouth. We can alter it according to the treatments you’re looking to have done so you can see what your smile will look like afterward, before you ever commit to the procedure, making it feel like less of a gamble.

Botox/Dermal Fillers

You've got your brand-new smile, but what about the face that surrounds it? With BOTOX or dermal fillers, our team can help patients achieve a new, youthful glow! These treatments either stop the muscles that create wrinkles from moving as freely (BOTOX) or plump up the skin to alleviate the appearance of skin creases (dermal fillers). They don't take much time at all, and the results can last for months before a follow-up appointment is needed. Let us know if you'd like to learn more!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Cosmetic dentistry, at the intersection of art and science, offers transformative solutions for those seeking to enhance their smiles. Whether it's the subtle refinement of tooth shape, dramatic teeth whitening, or the comprehensive overhaul of a dental makeover, cosmetic procedures have the power to rejuvenate oral aesthetics and boost self-confidence. As the demand for these treatments rises, so do the questions about their intricacies. This FAQ aims to demystify the world of cosmetic dentistry, providing clear answers for those contemplating a journey towards their ideal smile.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry is generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced dentist. Procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and bonding have been practiced for many years, and advancements in techniques and materials continue to enhance their safety and durability. However, as with any medical or dental procedure, there can be risks. It's crucial that you communicate with us about their medical history, expectations, and concerns. Potential side effects or complications can often be minimized by following post-treatment care guidelines.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a variety of procedures, and modern advancements have made these treatments more comfortable than ever. Many procedures, like teeth whitening, are typically pain-free, while others, like veneers or crowns, have been refined to maximize patient comfort. Dental professionals prioritize the well-being of their patients, using state-of-the-art technology and anesthetics to ensure a pleasant experience. While slight sensitivity or a brief period of adjustment might follow some treatments, these sensations are often temporary and mild. Always communicate with us about any concerns, as we are equipped to make your cosmetic dentistry journey as comfortable as possible.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on improving the appearance of one's smile, rather than addressing essential health concerns. As a result, many insurance companies categorize cosmetic procedures as elective and often do not cover them. However, there are exceptions. Some treatments, like crowns or certain types of fillings, may be both aesthetic and functional in nature, leading to partial or full insurance coverage. Coverage varies by provider, policy, and specific procedure. If considering cosmetic dentistry, it's essential to review your insurance policy or speak directly with your insurance provider to understand what's covered and any associated out-of-pocket costs.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Determining the need for cosmetic dentistry is often a mix of personal desire and professional advice. If you're self-conscious about your smile due to stained, chipped, misaligned, or missing teeth, cosmetic dentistry might be a solution to enhance your appearance and confidence. It's not only about aesthetics; some cosmetic procedures also address functional issues. The best approach is to consult with us. We can provide a thorough examination, discuss your goals and concerns, and recommend treatments that align with your aspirations. Remember, the decision is personal; it's about how you feel and what changes you wish to see in your smile.
