Cosmetic dentistry procedures are used to make your smile more beautiful. Many Reston cosmetic dentists report that they have witnessed patients who have become more confident, outgoing and decisive after having the appearance of their smiles enhanced through cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry may focus on the appearance of the teeth as well as the patient’s bite or gums. However, most patients seek cosmetic dental procedures to improve the color, shape, position or size of one or more teeth. For a procedure to be considered strictly cosmetic by most dental insurance companies, the teeth undergoing the procedure must be functional and healthy. If both restorative and cosmetic procedures are needed, your insurance provider may pay a larger percentage of your costs. Every policy is different, however, so you should allow one of our expert staff members to advise you on your coverage.
Here are just a few of the cosmetic procedures we can use to give you the smile of your dreams:
- Whitening can remove stains on your teeth resulting from coffee, tobacco, tea or certain other foods.
- Veneers are overlays that are sculpted to your teeth and bonded into place to correct a variety of dental issues.
- Implants can be used to replace missing teeth. Implants are permanently affixed, so they can be used to anchor or instead of bridges as well as to replace a single tooth that has been lost through accident or decay. Implants can also be used with full dentures to provide a more secure fit.
- Bridges are synthetic teeth that are typically used when the missing teeth are adjacent.
