What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dental work is focused on providing a positive enhancement to your teeth and your smile in general, and can be done on its own or as a complement to necessary oral health-related dental work. As the word “cosmetic” suggests, this type of dental work is typically only done for the sake of appearance, but it can definitely impact many areas of a patient’s life.
Our cosmetic dentistry procedures in Renton, WA include:
-Restoration and Enhancements
-Braces and Invisalign
-Dental implants and partials
All of these procedures are aimed at helping our patients have a brighter, healthier smile that gives them more confidence and makes them feel better about their overall appearance.
Cosmetic Services Explored
Veneers: Porcelain and/or resin veneers are thin shells that are made to cover the front surface of the teeth. These are ideal for people who want to change the color, shape, or size of their teeth or who simply want to cover up old stains and wear that whitening can’t remove. Veneers are also a great way to add extra strength to your teeth.
Whitening: A simple procedure that offers better results than home kits, cosmetic whitening can be done in our offices for patients who want a brighter smile. Teeth get stained over the years, but the stains can also cause damage to the enamel of the teeth. Whitening is a way to remove stains to keep the enamel strong and looking good when done as recommended by a dental professional.
Braces and Invisalign: Technology has created the future of braces with Invisalign, which is one of the most popular options for orthodontic straightening needs. Especially for adults, traditional braces might be less than ideal, so many providers now offer Invisalign treatment. Traditional braces are still available, but with the advanced features of Invisalign, it often provides a better solution to patient’s straightening needs.
Implants and Partials: For patients who are missing a significant amount of teeth, partials and implants offer a healthy solution to restore their smile. Dental implants are done one tooth at a time, utilizing a titanium “root” that is inserted into the bone socket. The tooth is attached to this root, and as the jaw heals, bone grows around the titanium insert to secure the replacement tooth into the jaw firmly. Partials can be made for one or more teeth, and are typically done in small sections to cover wider gaps in one spot of the mouth.
Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Work?
There are some cosmetic dental procedures that are also necessary for your oral health, while others are purely aesthetic. Today’s dental insurance providers offer a lot more coverage than in the past, but there are still some procedures that may not be covered by your insurance.
