What is cosmetic dentistry?

Preventive dentistry seeks to avoid gum disease and dental decay, and restorative dentistry works to correct existing problems. But cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental care focused solely on improving the appearance of your smile.

But many cosmetic treatments also offer restorative benefits. When a procedure works to strengthen or replace teeth and beautify your smile, your dental insurance will often cover it.

All cosmetic treatments at Impressive Dental Care are done with an eye to artistry. The contouring of your features and the shape of your smile guide cosmetic procedures. The goal is always to create a beautiful, natural-looking result.

What kinds of cosmetic dentistry can I choose from?

Many treatments improve the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is a highly individualized process, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.

The available treatments include:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental inlays and onlays
  • Dental bonding
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants
  • Veneers
  • Gum contouring

Some people pursue a smile makeover to address congenital issues that affect the appearance of their smile. Advanced dental decay, some medical conditions and treatments, and other factors can create a need for a smile makeover.

During your consultation, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and explore available treatments in greater detail. Playing an active role in your treatment planning is the best way to get results you’re happy with.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover combines several cosmetic and sometimes medical treatments to transform your smile. It’s pretty common to need more than one treatment, but the sheer volume of choices can overwhelm you.

A smile makeover is designed to address several needs in a way that offers the best possible results at prices that fall within your budget. During your consultation, you’ll discuss your treatment goals in detail.

Your dentist explains your choices, providing a treatment timeline and letting you know what to expect in terms of results and cost. You’ll receive all the details you need to make an informed decision about your care.
