Can I get dentures or implants just because I don't like my teeth?
Pulling healthy teeth to replace them with artificial teeth is not recommended. If your teeth are healthy but you don't like the way they look, there are numerous cosmetic procedures that can completely change your smile.

Who is eligible?
Most people who aren't happy with their smile are eligible for cosmetic procedures. If there is an infection in the mouth, then it would need to be cleared before any procedure begins. Any person who has missing, cracked, or unhealthy teeth may wish to rejuvenate their smile with cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Are there health benefits of cosmetic surgery?
There are a many health benefits that accompany cosmetic treatments. One large benefit is a decrease in the risk of infection in the mouth. Removing empty spaces in the mouth via dental implants, crowns, or bridges reduces available spaces for harmful bacteria to grow. Removing unhealthy teeth from the mouth through cosmetic treatment also helps keep your smile clean and healthy.

How many teeth are treated?
The number of teeth that are treated will depend on the number of teeth that are damaged. Some dentists will treat the teeth beside those that are affected so that an infection doesn't spread or so that surrounding teeth have the same appearance. Our dentists will get a better look at the number of teeth that need to be treated by doing an x-ray or taking a mold.

What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an effective, efficient means of improving the appearance of your smile. Veneers are placed over the front and side and biting edge of your teeth  to cover chips, cracks, discolorations and change the shape of your teeth.They are easy to have placed in the mouth and typically last many years so long as they are cared for as normal teeth.

How long does teeth whitening typically last?
Most whitening procedures will last for about one to two years if you don't drink sodas and coffee or eat foods that repeatedly stain the teeth. Touch ups usually are required after one year.

Do implants hurt?
There is minimal pain involved as the dentist will numb the area and/or use a mild sedative. Many find the experience to be very mild, and the end result yields a glowing, full smile that exceeds your expectations.

Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
Now, there are many cases in which insurance may cover cosmetic dentistry. Many times, people may not think that they are capable of receiving financial assistance if it is a cosmetic procedure, but it is liimited to your insurance policy. Cosmetic procedures may have multiple health benefits that dental insurance providers see as acceptable grounds for coverage, particularly for accidental breakage.  Always consult your insurance provider to see which options are available to you, as we are not able to guarentee your coverage.

Can children have cosmetic dentistry done?
Conservative cosmetic dentistry can be done on children!!  We often do immediate bonding on broken teeth from sports accidents and falls.  For whitening , we ususally recommend easy over the counter Crest White Strips for under 15 years of age.
