What is the approach to cosmetic dentistry at my office?

At my office, the approach to cosmetic dentistry is patient-centered. I engage with patients to understand their concerns and desires for their smiles before discussing potential treatment options. There is no pushy or salesy attitude.

What are some common cosmetic dentistry services offered at my office?

My office provides a range of cosmetic dentistry services. These include Invisalign or teeth alignment, teeth whitening, veneers, and regular orthodontic therapy. I firmly believe that all dentistry should essentially be cosmetic dentistry. The goal is always to mimic or enhance the natural shape, size, and form of the tooth for an improved appearance.

Teeth whitening is one of the most cost-effective and simple ways to enhance a smile. My office offers both over-the-counter products and professional methods, including in-office and take-home options. I regard veneers as a viable solution for those who don't wish to invest time in Invisalign or whitening, or for those encountering discoloration issues beyond the scope of these treatments. However, like any bonded material, veneers may need to be replaced or redone over time.

What is the age range for cosmetic dentistry?

There's no age limit for cosmetic dentistry at my office. While we typically wait until a child's jaw is fully developed (generally around age 12) before considering additive procedures. I have successfully treated patients well into their 90s.

Do cosmetic dentistry procedures involve pain?

Many cosmetic dentistry procedures do not involve pain as they often don't require drilling on the tooth. However, for procedures like crowns or veneers that do involve drilling, anesthetic is used to ensure patient comfort.

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by insurance?

Cosmetic dentistry is typically not covered by insurance. However, my office provides financing options and my staff can assist with any questions about insurance coverage.
