What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental care focused on enhancing the appearance of teeth and smiles. It encompasses a variety of treatments and procedures designed to improve tooth color, shape, size, alignment, and overall smile aesthetics.

 

Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve My Smile?

Absolutely. Cosmetic dentistry can significantly improve your smile by addressing various dental issues. Treatments like teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and bridges are tailored to meet individual needs, ensuring a brighter, more aligned, aesthetically pleasing smile.

 

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Procedures

While the aesthetic improvements of cosmetic dentistry are often the most visible benefits, it’s essential to recognize the significant positive impact these treatments can have on oral health and overall well-being. At The Practice, our approach to cosmetic dentistry goes beyond surface-level enhancements, focusing on improving oral health and functionality. Here’s how cosmetic dentistry can benefit your oral health:

 

Impact on Gum Health

Cosmetic dental treatments can lead to healthier gums and a healthier mouth overall. Procedures such as gum contouring can remove excess gum tissue that may harbor bacteria, reducing the risk of gum disease. Additionally, straighter teeth achieved through orthodontics are easier to clean effectively, which can help prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar that lead to gum disease.

 

Bite Correction and Functionality

Misaligned teeth can cause various issues, including difficulty chewing, jaw pain, and uneven wear. Cosmetic dentistry often involves correcting misalignments and improving the bite’s functionality. Procedures like Invisalign® or dental crowns enhance your smile’s appearance and strengthen bite alignment and functionality, contributing to a healthier and more comfortable oral environment.

 

Preventative Aspects

Many cosmetic dentistry treatments have preventative benefits that can protect against future dental problems. For example, veneers can protect the surface of damaged teeth, preventing further decay or deterioration. Similarly, replacing missing teeth with dental implants helps preserve jawbone health and prevents the remaining teeth from shifting, which could lead to additional oral health issues.

 

Overall Health Connections

It’s well-documented that oral health is closely linked to overall health. Conditions like gum disease have been associated with an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other health issues. Patients can reduce their risk of these conditions by improving oral health through cosmetic dentistry. A healthy mouth supports a healthy body, and treatments that enhance oral health contribute to better overall health outcomes.

At The Practice in Franklin, TN, we understand that a beautiful smile is just one aspect of your health and well-being. Our commitment to providing comprehensive cosmetic dentistry services is rooted in the belief that every patient deserves a smile they are proud to show off and the numerous health benefits that come with it. Our experienced team of cosmetic dentists takes a holistic approach, ensuring that your cosmetic treatments contribute positively to oral health and overall well-being.

Detailed Service Breakdown

 

Smile Design

A smile design (also known as a smile makeover) is a comprehensive approach to improving the aesthetics of your smile. Our skilled cosmetic dentists will assess your facial features, tooth alignment, color, and other factors to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns. 

We can enhance your smile’s symmetry, color, and overall appearance using state-of-the-art technology and advanced techniques. We aim to give you a beautiful smile that complements your natural facial features.

 

Veneers

Dental veneers are custom-crafted, thin shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, instantly transforming your smile’s appearance. The Practice offers various veneer options to address cosmetic concerns, including prepless veneers, composite veneers, and porcelain veneers. Whether you’re dealing with chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth, our expert cosmetic dentists are here to help you choose the type of veneer that best fits your needs and aesthetic goals.

 

Prepless Veneers

Prepless veneers offer a minimally invasive option to enhance your smile. Unlike traditional veneers, prepless veneers require little to no removal of the tooth enamel, preserving more of your natural tooth structure. They are an excellent choice for those seeking a reversible, less invasive cosmetic solution.

 

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are made from a tooth-colored resin applied directly to the tooth and sculpted to the desired shape and size. This type of veneer can be completed in a single visit, offering a quick and cost-effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. Composite veneers are best suited for minor cosmetic adjustments and can be easily repaired if damaged.

 

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the gold standard in veneer materials, known for their durability and natural-looking appearance. These veneers are custom-made in a dental laboratory to match your natural teeth in shape, size, and color, ensuring a seamless and radiant smile. Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains and can last many years properly, making them a popular choice for a long-lasting, picture-perfect smile.

 

Teeth Whitening

If enhancing the brightness of your smile quickly and non-invasively appeals to you, consider our array of teeth whitening options at The Practice. We’re proud to offer professional-grade, safe, and practical solutions for removing stains and discoloration, ensuring you achieve the radiant smile you desire.

 

In-Office Treatments:

Our in-office teeth whitening treatments are the perfect solution for instant and dramatic results. We provide a selection of advanced whitening systems to cater to your specific needs:

 

ZOOM Teeth Whitening: Experience significant whitening in just one session with ZOOM, which is known for its fast and effective results.

 

ICON Teeth Whitening: Ideal for tackling stubborn stains, ICON whitening penetrates deep to lift discoloration without requiring intensive drilling or bleaching.

 

KoR Teeth Whitening: Recognized for its ability to deliver astonishing results, even on tetracycline-stained teeth, KoR whitening is perfect for those seeking a comprehensive solution.

 

At-Home Kits:

For those who prefer the convenience of whitening their teeth at home, we offer premium take-home kits that provide professional-level results:

 

Pola Light At-Home Teeth Whitening: Combine the power of professional-grade whitening gel with the advanced Pola Light technology for effective home whitening.

 

Opalescence GO Teeth Whitening: Easy to use and pre-filled, these trays offer a hassle-free way to achieve brighter teeth at your convenience.

 

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, or caps, are custom-made restorations covering a tooth’s entire visible portion. They restore damaged or severely decayed teeth’ shape, size, strength, and appearance. 

Our skilled cosmetic dentists will design and create crowns that match your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile. Whether you need a crown for cosmetic reasons or to protect a weakened tooth, our team is committed to providing durable and aesthetically pleasing solutions.

 

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are fixed restorations used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth (pontics) anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. 

Our experienced dentists will carefully assess your dental condition and design a secure bridge that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. With a dental bridge, you can restore your smile, improve your ability to chew and speak, and maintain the alignment of your remaining teeth.

 

Composite Fillings

Composite or tooth-colored fillings repair teeth affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings are made from a tooth-colored resin material that can precisely match the shade of your natural teeth. This allows for a seamless and aesthetically pleasing restoration virtually indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth.

 At The Practice, we prioritize the health and appearance of your smile, and composite fillings are a perfect example of our commitment to comprehensive dental care.

Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect regarding costs, insurance, and financing options for cosmetic dentistry at our Franklin, TN, office.

Insurance Coverage and Limitations

Cosmetic dentistry is often considered elective, and as such, many insurance plans do not cover these treatments. However, specific therapeutic or reconstructive procedures, such as crowns or dental implants, may receive partial coverage. We recommend consulting with your insurance provider to understand your coverage limits and any out-of-pocket costs. Our office is happy to assist with insurance verification and claims to help you maximize any benefits you may have.

However, it is essential to note that at The Practice, Dr. Kaisar is an experienced periodontist who takes extensive precautions to mitigate these risks to ensure successful patient outcomes.

If you have further concerns or questions, it’s always recommended to consult with your dentist, who can provide personalized information based on your health profile and the specifics of the proposed treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

The longevity of cosmetic dentistry treatments such as veneers, teeth whitening, dental crowns, and bridges can extend for many years. The duration is influenced by the type of procedure, oral hygiene practices, and lifestyle habits. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, these treatments can provide a lasting, beautiful smile.

After cosmetic dental treatments like getting veneers, the maintenance required is similar to that of natural teeth. This includes brushing twice daily with a non-abrasive toothpaste, flossing, and visiting your dentist for check-ups and cleanings.

Cosmetic dentistry can benefit a wide range of individuals who wish to improve the appearance of their smiles. However, it’s essential to consult with our experienced cosmetic dentists to determine the most suitable treatment options based on your specific dental condition and goals.

Most cosmetic dentistry procedures are performed with local anesthesia to ensure comfort during the treatment. After the procedure, you may experience temporary sensitivity or discomfort, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

At The Practice, patients can access various financing options for cosmetic dentistry. CareCredit® offers interest-free financing, allowing for convenient monthly payments over a fixed period, subject to approval. Proceed Finance provides large case financing up to $70,000 with the possibility of terms up to 96 months, without the need for collateral, and the option to check loan options instantly without affecting credit. Additionally, The Practice offers an In-House Dental Discount Plan for those without insurance, enabling affordable and consistent dental care. Out-of-pocket payments can be made using cash, debit, and most major credit cards​.

For your first visit, you should expect a warm welcome, a comprehensive dental exam, an oral cancer screening, digital X-rays, and a thorough dental cleaning, assuming no major dental issues are present. The Practice provides comforts such as reclining chairs with blankets, entertainment options during treatment, and the use of Nitrous Oxide for relaxation. It’s also important to bring your identification card and insurance card to the visit​.
