Cosmetic dentistry usually considered is a desired treatment (not necessary), so it's not usually
covered by insurance. Before you decide to get any cosmetic procedure make sure you're clear about
the price, benefits and risks you can expect during the process.

The American Dental Association
does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a
formal specialty area of dentistry. However, there only 2 dental specialties that focused on dental
esthetics/cosmetics and lead to board certification approved by the American Dental Association.
is more popular than ever and it isn't just for celebrities. Variety
of options and price ranges make cosmetic dentistry available for millions of people. The materials
used today for Cosmetic dentistry are more durable and natural looking than those used in the past.
There are a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures available, including:
Inlays/Onlays: Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain or
composite materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a "filling" to teeth
with tooth decay or similar structural damage. Whereas dental fillings are molded into
place within the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are created in a dental
laboratory before being fitted and adhesively bonded into place by your dentist.

Composite Bonding: Chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth may be repaired or have
their appearance corrected using a procedure called composite bonding. A dental composite
material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface
of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity
light. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the remainder of the surrounding
tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth to create a healthy, bright smile.

Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic
dentistry procedure. Teeth are often stained from smoking, food, drink (coffee, tea or red
wine) or poor oral hygiene. Bleaching the teeth can enhance the appearance of your smile.

Dental veneers or Porcelain veneers (laminates): Porcelain veneers are thin, custom
made to match the size, shape, length and color of your natural teeth. They are bonded
to the front of your existed teeth, look like your natural teeth, durable and stain
resistant. Once you select their desired color, the veneers will stay this way, without
color changes over time. Most patients wear them for at least 10-15 year before they need
to have their veneers replaced. If porcelain veneers chipped or cracked they can be replaced

Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as
a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry in order to compensate for tooth
loss. Often the result is not only an enhanced smile, but also a more youthful appearance,
since missing teeth cause the face to collapse, making you look older.

Smile Makeover: Smile makeovers involve a comprehensive assessment of your smile esthetics
in order to improve its overall appearance. Typically one or more cosmetic dentistry
procedures, such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening,
will be required for several teeth in both the upper and lower arches in order to achieve
the look you want.

Full mouth reconstruction: While consulting with you about a smile makeover to primarily
improve the esthetic appearance of your smile, your dentist may discover that there is a
need to provide necessary treatment to correct functional problems with your bite, muscles,
teeth and bone structure. If you need full mouth reconstruction, the materials available
today make it possible for your dentist to provide you with durable, functional and
clinically sound treatments that also look natural.
