What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Although cosmetic dentistry is mostly about improving the appearance of your teeth, gums and smile, in some cases it has the additional benefit of improving your dental health as well.
It’s not as hard as you might think, and the transformation can be remarkably dramatic. The advancements in cosmetic dentistry have come a long way in filling in the gaps between teeth, smoothing over chipped, broken or uneven teeth, hiding stained or discolored teeth, and doing so while preserving as many of your natural teeth as possible. All of this is achieved with dental restorations and techniques that you will love.
Types of Cosmetic Dental Services
There are many options available to you, depending on your needs. Here’s a look:
Dental Implants: Implants serve the dual purpose of improving the appearance of your smile while also making a dramatic difference in your dental health. In short, an implant replaces a missing tooth. A small post is positioned in your jawbone and essentially replaces the root of the tooth. The implant can support a crown, bridge, or denture, looks completely natural, and can last a lifetime. LEARN MORE
Full-mouth Reconstruction: As with implants, there’s more to this than just cosmetics. A full-mouth reconstruction rebuilds and/or replaces the teeth in a person’s mouth, restoring not just a wonderful smile but the functional ability to bite and chew food.
Inlay and Onlay Restorations: Both are used to replace old and typically large fillings. The inlay is fitted into the cavity while the onlay covers the surface of the tooth, much like a crown.
Teeth Whitening: This is a bleaching process that removes dull stains and discoloration from your teeth and restores a whiter, brighter smile. This is a popular solution for improving smiles. At Premier Dental of Edgmont Square, we offer both in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening. LEARN MORE
Veneers: These are thin, custom-made porcelain shells which are adhered to the front of the tooth and alter not only the color of the tooth but, as needed, its size and shape as well. They can also strengthen the tooth. LEARN MORE
Porcelain Crowns: A porcelain crown is a custom-made cap that fits over your tooth, completely covering it above the gum line. It looks just like a natural tooth and matches the shape, color and translucency of your other teeth. A single tooth may need a crown if it is damaged or has a cavity (dental decay) that is too big to be fixed with a filling. A crown improves the appearance of a damaged, discolored, misshaped, worn, cracked or broken tooth while also strengthening it and protecting it from further decay. Functionally, it can also serve as an anchor or support for bridges or dentures.
Dental Bonding: The bond is a tooth-colored resin which repairs decayed, chipped or cracked teeth, closes spaces between teeth, and improves the appearance of misshaped, worn or discolored teeth.
Invisalign®: These clear, custom-made, removable teeth-aligners are an effective alternative to more traditional metal braces. LEARN MORE
Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
Most cosmetic procedures are considered elective and not necessary for your dental health. For this reason, insurance companies don’t usually cover the cost for aesthetic enhancements. However, there may be exceptions in cases where a procedure doesn’t just improve the look but also improves a person’s dental health while restoring some function to their mouth. In such cases, an insurance company might pay some of the cost. It is advised that you call your insurance company or talk with your dentist to discuss your options.
