Cosmetic Dentistry

What does a cosmetic dentist do?

Cosmetic dentists are skilled in all types of treatments and procedures aimed at helping patients correct aesthetic issues to improve the appearance of their teeth and smiles. Studies have shown the way your smile looks has a big impact not only on how you feel about yourself, but how others perceive you. Cosmetic dentistry helps ensure your teeth and smile look healthiest and most attractive.


What issues does cosmetic dentistry address?

There are many types of treatments for all sorts of issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Teeth that appear too large or too small

  • Dark fillings

  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth

  • Teeth that are stained or discolored

  • Pitted teeth

  • Missing teeth

  • Braces and orthodontics can straighten your teeth to dramatically improve your appearance. We offer the newest approaches and best methods to achieve a more pleasing smile.

What if I have multiple issues that need to be addressed?

Today's cosmetic dentistry techniques are designed to be performed in sequence when needed to help patients address multiple issues for the best results. Many patients with multiple issues opt for a complete “smile makeover” based on a comprehensive treatment plan that uses several treatments to achieve a healthier, natural-looking smile for greater confidence and self-esteem.


What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are restorations used to correct decayed or damaged areas of a tooth. Inlays are placed within the cusps or “points” of the tooth, while onlays are larger, replacing areas within the cusps as well as one or more cusps as needed.


Does dental insurance cover the cost of cosmetic treatments?

Some procedures that are restorative as well as cosmetic may have partial coverage, but those that are purely for aesthetic concerns such as whitening are not covered by insurance. Our office can help you find a payment plan that enable you to fit your care into your budget.
