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.
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:

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.
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.
