Cosmetic Dentistry Overview
There are a number of things that can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile such as missing, discolored, or misshapen teeth either from birth, or poor life choices. Cosmetic dentistry at People's Dental offers multiple treatments that could reshape, straighten, and whiten your teeth to create a more beautiful smile. The more common treatments are teeth whitening, veneers, dental bonding, and contouring, as well as restorations like crowns and bridges. At your consultative appointment at our Springfield, MA, facility, our skilled dental team will help you develop a customized treatment plan to create your best smile.
Best Candidates for Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic treatments can help if you want to improve or repair your smile. Cosmetic procedures can address issues like teeth discoloration, damaged, crooked, or missing teeth, as well as a gummy smile. Generally, several cosmetic treatments can be combined to give you better results. If needed, restorations like crowns and bridges may also be added to your treatment plan to further enhance your smile. Before you consider cosmetic procedures, your teeth and gums should be healthy to avoid worsening or creating problems such as gum disease or tooth sensitivity.
What to Expect with Cosmetic Dentistry
At the start of your consultation with a member of our team, we will check the condition of your teeth and gums to determine if they are healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry treatments. After this, they will talk to you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your aesthetic goals. After your plan is made, we will explain your next steps and help you schedule your cosmetic treatments. Some services, like bonding and contouring or teeth whitening, can typically be done in just one visit. Other procedures, like crowns, bridges, teeth straightening, or veneers, will require a few visits.
Cosmetic Dentistry Follow-Up
Throughout the procedures, our team will give you any follow-up instructions or recommendations. It is also best if you follow a proper home oral hygiene routine with frequent brushing and flossing to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Twice yearly appointments at People's Dental for cleanings and dental exams will also help maintain your attractive, new smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry Insurance Coverage
Total costs for cosmetic dentistry treatments will depend on what services you choose. For the most part, cosmetic services are not paid by dental insurance policies, but we will talk to your insurance to help determine what procedures might be covered and any out-of-pocket costs before you get any services. At your initial consultation, we will discuss the payment methods our office accepts and help you find more information on low-interest medical financing.
