Cosmetic Dentistry includes dental procedures that improve how your smile looks. Cosmetic Dental Care that dentists perform may include tooth whitening, white fillings, porcelain crowns or dental veneers that cover the teeth like acrylic fingernails cover your own nails.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures require artistry as well as scientific skills. Tooth whitening is the most frequently performed cosmetic dental procedure. White composite fillings in place of metal fillings are another cosmetic choice. See the following articles for more information:
- Tooth Whitening
- White (composite) Fillings
- Dental Bridges
- Dental Veneers
- Dental Implants
- Snap-on Smile
Any procedure that is done solely to improve the looks of your smile without being required for the function of your teeth is considered cosmetic dentistry. Insurance companies don’t usually pay for cosmetic dentistry work. So you should expect to pay out-of-pocket for procedures that are done solely for aesthetic reasons
Snap-on Smile is a new cosmetic dental appliance that can snap over your existing teeth to improve their look and function. Snap-on Smile can cover missing, discolored, or misshapen teeth. It is economical and can permit you to preview how your smile could be improved with more permanent procedures. It is created with no shots, no drills, and no adhesives.
