Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Why Do Patients Request Cosmetic Dentistry Services?

The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to enhance the appearance of your smile by correcting issues that embarrass you, such as discolored or crooked teeth. Dr. Trevor Cosmetic and Family Dentistry offers a variety of cosmetic services to patients of all ages.

What Cosmetic Dentistry Services Does Dr. Trevor offer?

Dr. Trevor offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to patients, including:

  • Cosmetic fillings
  • Crowns
  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers
  • Invisalign®

Some patients need only one cosmetic dentistry service to achieve their desired result, while others need two or more.

Each of these treatments serves a different purpose. For example, crowns, veneers, and cosmetic fillings are designed to improve the appearance of discolored, misshapen, or damaged teeth. Invisalign, on the other hand, is designed to straighten your teeth. If your teeth are stained, teeth whitening services can improve their coloring.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Painful?

Cosmetic dentistry rarely causes significant pain for the patient. Dr. Trevor uses anesthetics to keep you comfortable during any procedures that may be painful.

How Many Treatments are Necessary?

Are Cosmetic Dentistry Services Covered by Dental Insurance?

Services selected for purely cosmetic purposes aren’t usually covered by dental insurance. However, if a procedure also addresses an oral health issue, such as a cavity, some or all of the cost may be covered. To learn more about what services are covered, consult your insurance provider.
