What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry improves the aesthetic qualities of a patient's smile. While many cosmetic procedures also have health benefits, these procedures intend to improve a patient's appearance.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Bring Back Your Confidence

People who are not happy with their teeth feel reluctant to smile. They may feel limited to certain types of interactions with people, and they may avoid having their pictures taken. They may feel awkward in social situations because they don't want people to see their teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry can change these circumstances and make patients eager to show off their smiles. They may feel better about themselves, leading to a better mood and outlook.

Enhance Your Professional Image

An attractive smile is a valuable asset for busy professionals. People in public-facing professions find cosmetic dentistry an asset to their careers.

Improve Your Oral Health

Many cosmetic procedures also have secondary health benefits. Orthodontic correction makes teeth easier to keep clean, leading to less gum disease and tooth decay.

Procedures Offered

Restorative Dentistry. Restorative dentistry is the art of replacing or repairing missing or damaged teeth. Functional replacements like crowns and bridges restore chewing ability and boost oral health.

Dental Crowns and Bridges. Crowns are ceramic or metal caps that cover teeth that were damaged or decayed. The dentist prepares the tooth by removing compromised areas and reducing the tooth’s size so a crown will fit. Crowns can repair teeth that are too decayed for a filling. They can protect what remains of a natural tooth after it has broken in an accident or due to decay. They can also cover teeth after a root canal.

A bridge is a fixed dental appliance that replaces an extracted tooth. Dentists can make bridges for as many as three to four teeth in a row. The bridge connects to crowns or dental implants on either side.

Invisalign. Invisalign is an advanced type of dental aligner made from medical-grade plastic. The system works by gradually shifting each tooth with plastic aligners. Over time, the series of aligners guide the teeth into new positions. The system enables patients to receive orthodontic treatment in private without attracting unwanted attention.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

How long should a dental crown last?
A crown typically lasts about five to 15 years. With proper care and a quality installation, they can last even longer.
Why should I have my missing teeth replaced?
Even if you are only missing a few teeth, having a gap in your smile can cause you to feel self-conscious. You may not feel free to smile in photos or in social situations. If you do not replace a missing tooth, you may also experience oral health problems. Teeth may shift out of place and become crossed and crooked. Your dental bite may be disturbed. You may have more dental decay or a higher chance of gum disease.
How long does Invisalign take to straighten teeth?
Most patients complete their treatment in about 12 months, though some take 18 months. Invisalign is faster than metal braces, which take 18 months to three years or longer.
Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
Not all policies cover cosmetic dentistry, though they cover general and restorative dentistry. Crowns and bridges often receive coverage because they also have restorative benefits. Some policies do cover orthodontic treatment as well. We can help you understand your policy.
