There is a very large range of options in cosmetic dentistry today. The most common cosmetic dentistry treatment is whitening the teeth. This type of professional dental whitening can make a significant difference that far eclipses what drugstore teeth whitening kits could ever achieve. People who suffer from missing teeth, cracked teeth, chipped teeth or gaps in their teeth can find an ideal dental solution, as well. Even if multiple problems are present, a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures can take a very damaged smile and make it into the kind of smile you're proud of.
Teeth whitening may be the most common procedure, but there are many other popular ways to improve the smile. Veneers can conceal cracking and chips, or even discolored teeth when they are applied to the front of the tooth. Crowns can conceal damage in the tooth while protecting the entire surface of the tooth. Missing teeth can be replaced with implants or bridges.
It depends on the insurance company. Some dental insurance companies will pay for part (often around half) of most dental procedures. For example, if you need veneers your dental insurance may pay for half the cost. Certain cosmetic dentistry procedures are done not just for cosmetic reasons, but also for strengthening or overall teeth improvement reasons. For example, veneers actually make the teeth beneath them stronger and more resilient. Thus, they may be considered as a necessary dental procedure that happens to have cosmetic benefits. Some cosmetic treatments are typically not covered by insurance, for example, teeth whitening. However, it is always best to check with your insurance -- you may just be surprised at what they will cover. If insurance won't cover the procedures you plan to get, you can also consider financing options like Care Credit.
