Cosmetic Dentistry

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving your smile. Cosmetic procedures can remove yellowing stains, cover or replace dark fillings or discolored teeth, close gaps between teeth, correct the appearance of crooked teeth or teeth that look “too small,” and improve many other aesthetic issues. Cosmetic dentistry is extremely popular and can dramatically improve the way you feel about yourself and your appearance.

What kinds of procedures and treatments are considered cosmetic?

Cosmetic dentistry includes an array of options that can individually or in combinations address your unique needs and concerns so you can achieve the beautiful smile you’re looking for. Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry options include:

  • Dental veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Gum contouring
  • Tooth-colored (or “white”) fillings
  • Teeth whitening

Some options like crowns, bridges, and dentures are also considered restorative procedures.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a custom-designed treatment plan that’s created just for you. Your smile makeover will include all the treatments and procedures needed to help you get the beautiful smile you’re looking for. Procedures are performed in a specific sequence for optimal results. During your consultation visit, Dr. Mori will discuss your specific goals toward suggesting the most appropriate treatment.

Can cosmetic treatments improve my oral health too?

Yes, some cosmetic procedures can improve your oral health as well as improve the way your smile looks so you feel more confident. For instance, a dental crown provides protection and strength so teeth are less likely to become damaged or decayed. Bridges and dentures replace missing teeth, which restores your bite balance and prevents uneven tooth wear and additional tooth loss.

Does insurance pay for cosmetic treatments?

Most dental insurance plans do not provide coverage for cosmetic procedures. However, when a cosmetic treatment provides a restorative benefit while improving your smile’s aesthetics, the cost of the procedure may be covered wholly or partially by dental insurance. Plus, our office offers affordable financing options to make it easier to get the smile of your dreams.
