What does Cosmetic Dentristry Include?
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment, and overall smile appearance.
Most cosmetic procedures are elective rather than essential. Treatment can also provide restorative benefits, such as bridging or implants. Insurance will usually pay for procedures that are medically necessary. Elective cases are usually not reimbursable. The most common procedures used in cosmetic dentistry are fairly simple. However, certain procedures require more complex and specialized care.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Painful?
Our cosmetic dentists know people are apprehensive about treatments and therefore, work hard to make the procedures as comfortable as possible so the patient has a pleasant experience.
Teeth whitening, veneers, and braces are some of the work we perform where there is minimal discomfort to the patient. Full mouth reconstruction, and crowns are 2 procedures where there is more discomfort for the patient.
How do you find a good Cosmetic Dentist?
There are several ways to find a good cosmetic dentist near you. We recommend asking friends for referrals, checking credentials on the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), view work performed by looking at their website or Google Reviews, communicating what you want, and taking time to talk to the dentist during your consultation.
We offer the following cosmetic services:
With a cosmetic procedure such as bonding or porcelain veneers, there are some simple steps to follow post-treatment. This process can range from $500 – $1300 per tooth.
Bonding is an alternative to veneers and can be a great way to improve the appearance, strength, and function of your teeth. Bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes, and $100 to $400, per tooth.
Dental bleaching is a simple process to correct tooth discoloration, which is caused by staining, aging or chemical damage. Teeth can be bleached for about $500 at our office.
A medically necessary procedure when teeth have been lost, injured or fractured, dental implants needed, or when bite problems cause pain.
Losing your natural teeth can be emotional and distressing. But with new dental technologies, you can have high-quality dentures that fit comfortably and look good. On average though, the cost is around $1800 for a traditional, full set of dentures, however, cost may vary slightly.
In some situations when teeth are damaged and cannot be saved with a simple dental restoration, we use porcelain or zirconia crowns to make the teeth look natural and new. Crowns can be made from metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, or ceramic, and cost about $500 to $900 each.
Dental bridges are used when more than one tooth has been lost. The bridge can be either permanent or removable, and attaches artificial teeth to the existing adjacent teeth, which are also called abutment teeth. Traditional or cantilever bridges typically cost $2,000 – $5,000 for one pontic and a crown for each abutment tooth. Maryland bridges typically cost $1,500 – $2,500 for one pontic with the framework, or wings, attached to the abutment teeth.
