Cosmetic dentistry includes all the treatments and procedures that help patients of all ages enjoy more attractive, healthier-looking teeth and smiles.

During the consultation appointment, patients will have plenty of time to discuss their concerns and learn about the most appropriate treatment options for their needs.
A smile makeover is a carefully designed program of smile restoration that includes multiple treatments performed in a specific sequence over time, helping patients address an array of cosmetic issues. In a smile makeover, the dentist works closely with the patient to identify their goals and concerns, then devises a plan that’s just for their needs.
Yes, many cosmetic treatments also offer a preventive or restorative benefit as well. For instance, straightening teeth, covering damaged teeth or closing gaps between teeth can all reduce the risks of gum disease and tooth decay and make it easier to clean teeth and gums so they stay healthy. Tooth-colored fillings have been shown to bond more securely compared to traditional metal fillings, preventing decay from “seeping in” underneath or around the filling. Crowns can also be used to add strength to teeth with large areas of damage, preventing additional damage while also improving the look of your smile.
Procedures that are strictly cosmetic like whitening generally are not covered by insurance, but procedures that offer a preventive or restorative benefit may be covered in part. Our staff can help determine the level of coverage that’s available as well as identify financing options to make the cost of care affordable.
