Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on improving the appearance of your smile. While preventive dentistry seeks to avoid serious decay and gum disease, and restorative dentistry works to correct those problems, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the way your smile looks.

That said, there are many cosmetic treatments that also serve restorative roles, and vice versa. Since most dental insurance plans don’t cover cosmetic treatments, you may be able to get your procedure covered by selecting a restorative option that also delivers your desired cosmetic benefits.

What are some cosmetic dental treatments?

There are a range of dental treatments that offer cosmetic benefits. When it comes to purely aesthetic results, cosmetic dental treatments include:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Invisalign®

Some treatments that offer both restorative and cosmetic benefits include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures

The first step in determining which cosmetic treatments are the right fit for your needs is to come in for a comprehensive dental exam. If there are existing issues with dental decay or gum disease, those matters may need to be treated prior to moving forward with cosmetic work. 

How do I know which cosmetic options are right for me?

The sheer number of available options can make it difficult to know which treatments are right for you. When you rely on Arcadia Dentistry for care, you can rest assured you’re in the best of hands.

Your practitioner works closely with you to determine your treatment goals. You’ll learn what each option offers in terms of benefits and results, and also what to expect in terms of treatment timelines. Options like teeth whitening and tooth-colored fillings deliver results in just one visit, while treatments like dental veneers, dental implants, and crowns take a bit longer to complete. 

Outstanding cosmetic dentistry relies on a thorough planning stage. This includes evaluating your facial structure and the shape of your smile to design a cosmetic treatment plan that brings you as close as possible to your ideal smile.
