Cosmetic dentistry is a group of treatments that offers better appearance, comfort and increased dental hygiene.
What Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Are There?
There are lots of dental treatments that fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry. Basically, any kind of dental treatment that is optional and not necessarily needed is considered cosmetic dentistry. However, there are many kinds of cosmetic dentistry that are actually covered by dental insurance. If you’re unsure whether your cosmetic dentistry treatment will be covered by your insurance company simply speak to your dental insurance representative. Following are some of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry:
As you age, teeth naturally become more yellow and/or stained. It’s possible to get a more youthful appearance simply by whitening the teeth. Professional teeth whitening in a dentist’s office is safer and longer lasting than over-the-counter teeth whitening.
Dental crowns are sometimes called dental caps. That’s because they are manufactured crowns that fit on top of your natural teeth. Dental crowns are popular with people who are in the public eye, such as celebrities, newscasters and others. Crowns can help to hide problems such as cracked teeth, missing teeth and gaps.
There are many other cosmetic dental treatments that can help you feel better about the way your teeth look. For a full listing of available cosmetic treatments suitable for your situation, contact us today.
