Cosmetic Dental FAQ

I don't like my teeth or my smile – what can I do?

A wide variety of options are available to improve tooth function and how your smile looks. Ask us about what options are available.

How much does it cost to get a great smile?

Like most services, cost varies based on the amount of time required and the difficulty of the procedure(s). Generally, improving a smile requires a combination of treatment options such as bleaching, reshaping gums, and using bonded materials (resin or porcelain) to improve the appearance of the teeth. A great way to start is by having a consultation with our dentist to determine how you can reach your goals.

I have dental insurance. Will it pay for my new smile?

Most dental insurance has very low total benefits per year, which may offset the cost for regular checkups, but probably won't pay toward cosmetic services. We will work to maximize your benefits, and may have suggestions for alternative methods of financing so you can obtain the treatment of choice. Learn more about dental insurance and financing.

What are some benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

A great smile should improve your self-confidence, which can have a positive impact on the social and professional aspects of your life. Cosmetic dentistry is not just about pretty smiles though. New techniques and materials are available for back teeth as well as those seen when you smile.

How many office visits will it take to fix my teeth and improve my smile?

This varies with each individual, depending on the need. Sometimes, you can dramatically improve your oral health and appearance in just a couple of visits. Discuss your goals and concerns, so the best plan can be developed for your individual situation. If you start today, a new smile can be yours sooner than you think.

What will my new smile look like?

Our dentist will work with you in choosing the right look for you. A smile enhancement can be made to look both dramatic and natural. We can use photographs (in a process called cosmetic imaging) and models to show you what to expect. Sometimes, trial materials can be placed directly on your teeth to help you visualize the change.

Is my new smile permanent?

With good home care and regular visits, modern materials can last for many years, and possibly decades. Like most things, excellent maintenance will extend the life of your dental restorations.
