Cosmetic dentistry encompasses all procedures that improve the look of the teeth. Tooth whitening, veneers, bridges, crowns, composite fillings, orthodontics, and more fall under this category of dentistry.
When considering a cosmetic procedure for your smile, make an appointment to consult with the dentist. By explaining what you are dissatisfied with and what you want to change, your dentist can help you understand what procedures are available to help you find that perfect smile. This is also the time to find out if your expectations are realistic, the cost of each procedure, and the opportunity to ask questions.
Always check with your insurance company before any cosmetic dentistry procedure. Each company provides different coverage and it is your responsibility to obtain information about your plan. This information may be a factor in deciding what procedures you will choose to do and in prioritizing your list.
