Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of focus within dentistry that seeks to improve the appearance of your smile. Some cosmetic treatments also restore damaged or decayed teeth. In these cases, it might be possible to have your treatment covered by dental insurance.

Many people choose to come in for cosmetic dentistry because they feel uncomfortable sharing their smile with others. When you choose a highly skilled practice for cosmetic changes,  aesthetic issues can be corrected to give you a beautiful and natural-looking smile. 

What kinds of cosmetic treatments are available?

Thanks to advancements in dental technology, there are now many different ways to improve your smile. Some options even address more than one issue, making them a great value.

  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental bonding
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Tooth-colored fillings
