The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

While cosmetic dental treatments can support your oral health, in most cases they are not medically necessary. However, improving your smile can improve so many other aspects of your life.

Being able to smile with confidence can give you a huge boost in confidence. People who invest in their smile typically want to protect that investment. They tend to take proper care of their oral hygiene.

Some cosmetic dentistry treatments can fix dental problems while also improving the smile. Patients who suffer from an uneven bite will benefit from treatment while also improving their smile.

With cosmetic dentistry, we can create brighter and more balanced smiles for patients with crooked, chipped, and discolored teeth. Our cosmetic dental treatments include: 


Clear Invisalign aligners offer an alternative to metal braces for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic needs. A series of Invisalign aligners gently realign crooked teeth over time. These aligners are discreet and removable, so patients can eat the foods they love without restrictions. To learn more about the benefits of Invisalign, see Invisalign.

Dental Veneers

We use porcelain veneers to cover tooth gaps, damaged teeth, crooked teeth, and other imperfections. Veneers are shell-like treatments that can cover the front of teeth in the smile line to create a balanced look. Dental veneers can cover one or all teeth in the smile line. To learn more about the porcelain veneer process, see Porcelain Veneers.

Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding treatment uses tooth-colored materials to cover tooth injuries and discoloration. Bonding is similar to veneers, but bonding uses malleable materials shaped over prepared teeth. Dental bonding can address damage and discoloration in different areas of the smile. To learn more about the dental bonding procedure, see Teeth Bonding.

Teeth Whitening 

Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments, professional whitening can deliver long-lasting results. Professional teeth whitening uses gels with higher percentages of active ingredients like hydrogen peroxide to penetrate the enamel and lift stains left by foods, drinks, tobacco, and bacteria. To learn more about the professional teeth whitening treatments we offer, see Teeth Whitening.

Traditional Braces

Many patients with crooked and misaligned teeth require traditional braces. We offer ceramic and metal braces for our patients to straighten their smiles. Additionally, we will recommend traditional braces over Invisalign for patients with moderate to severe orthodontic needs. To learn more about the types of braces we offer, see Traditional Braces.

What to Expect From Your Cosmetic Consultation

Your cosmetic consultation is an important step to achieving your new smile. You will get to share what you dislike and like about your smile. Your dentist will ask you about your goals and what treatments you might be interested in.

We will need to know your medical history and dental history. Your dentist will perform a full examination of your oral health. This includes assessing the condition of your teeth, gums, bite, and overall oral structures.

Your dentist will evaluate the aesthetics of your smile. We will take photographs of your smile and note the color, shape, alignment, and symmetry of your teeth.

Based on the exam and your goals, your dentist will discuss all your treatment options. You must know the benefits, risks, and expected outcomes of each procedure.

We will develop a custom treatment plan to address your needs and achieve your smile goals. The plan may involve a single procedure or a combination of treatments.

Our staff will provide an estimate of the cost of your treatment. They will review all your financing options or payment plans.

A cosmetic dentistry consultation is an opportunity to explore possibilities, set realistic expectations, and make informed decisions about achieving the smile you want.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Whether you’re considering a smile makeover, curious about the process, or seeking details about costs, our FAQ section is designed to help you. Here we address common questions about cosmetic dentistry where you can discover valuable information to help you through your smile makeover journey.

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by insurance?

Insurance coverage for cosmetic dentistry is unlikely. Dental insurance companies will not cover purely cosmetic procedures, like teeth whitening. However, treatments with both aesthetic and functional benefits, such as dental crowns, may offer partial coverage. Every patient has unique coverage and it is their responsibility to check with their provider on whether or not something is covered.

Are cosmetic dentistry procedures painful?

Most cosmetic dental procedures are not painful. We use a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort our patients may feel during treatment when necessary. Patients may experience some post-treatment sensitivity or mild pain, which is usually temporary. We will recommend the appropriate post-treatment care to help with your pain.

How long will my cosmetic results last?

The longevity of your cosmetic results depends on the type of procedure you get. With any type of dental procedure, your oral hygiene practices and lifestyle will play the biggest role in how long your results last. Teeth whitening results, for example, may last for several months to a couple of years.

Can cosmetic dentistry fix crooked teeth?

Yes, we offer several cosmetic dentistry treatments that can address crooked teeth. This includes traditional orthodontics, Invisalign, porcelain veneers, and even teeth bonding. During your cosmetic consultation, your dentist will assess your teeth. Then they will recommend the best teeth straightening treatment for you.

Are there age restrictions on cosmetic dentistry procedures?

We can perform most of our cosmetic dental procedures at various ages. For example, orthodontic treatments are commonly provided for teenagers and adults. However, some are some treatments where the dentist may deem the patient too young. Contact our office for further information on this matter.

Can I get a smile makeover?

Yes, a smile makeover involves a customized combination of cosmetic dental procedures to address multiple aesthetic concerns and create a harmonious, attractive smile. Schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation when you are ready to discuss your options.

How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

The cost of cosmetic dentistry will vary widely depending on the procedures you choose. The only way we can give you an accurate estimate is to assess your smile and create a treatment plan. Then we can estimate the cost of your treatment based on your individual needs and wants.
