Since dental insurance does not generally cover dental work for cosmetic purposes, many individuals wishing to improve their appearance have to pay out of pocket for those changes. Your cosmetic dentist has a solution to fit your budget and timeline.
Teeth whitening can be completed in one brief dental visit. Many patients can see up to eight shades improvement with in-office whitening. Patients that wish to whiten their teeth at their own pace in the privacy of home can take advantage of take home teeth whitening. The results take longer to achieve, but take home kits are often a more economical choice.
Veneers are tooth colored shells that are permanently affixed to the front of teeth requiring care. Some cases where veneers work well include:
- Dental stain – Intrinsic stains that aren’t eliminated at your hygiene visit or with teeth whitening treatment can be covered with veneers.
- Chipped or worn teeth – When dental bonding is not sufficient for dental repair, veneers can cover chipped teeth, make worn teeth appear normal, and make spaces between teeth virtually disappear.
- Misshapen teeth – A malocclusion or very crooked teeth may need further treatment; however to make those misshapen teeth appear symmetrical, dental veneers can complete that enhancement.
Missing teeth not only affect your appearance, but can impact your speech and dictate to you what and how you will eat. To replace lost teeth, a dental implant is a procedure that allows you to resume your life with a treatment as close as having your biological teeth restored.
The implant is surgically placed in gum tissue where one or more teeth have been lost. A final restoration will cover the implant providing a means to restore speech, eating, and smiling.
