What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
As time goes on, cosmetic dentistry becomes more and more popular. Patients concerned with making their teeth whiter and brighter are in need of a cosmetic dentistry consultation, not a general consultation. Because some of these services may not be covered by insurance or may have a high out-of-pocket expense, be sure to get all of the financial details ironed out. Along with that, be sure to fully understand any special maintenance needed after the service is administered.

Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic are placed over the front of your teeth, altering color and shape. They’re highly resistant to stains and have excellent life expectancies. This procedure is simply and timely with little to no anesthesia required. The start-to-finish process includes a preparation appointment, a bonding appointment, and a follow-up appointment. Are dental veneers permanent? Dental veneers are not permanent but have been known to last 10-15 years. Once a dental veneer procedure is administered, it cannot be reversed.
If you or a loved one has suffered from worn away enamel, stains, or medication side effects, our dentists whiten and brighten your beautiful smile with our teeth whitening procedure. This procedure can yield results lasting up to 5 years. Is teeth whitening necessary? Teeth whitening is not necessary, however, you may be unable to remove layers of stain and discoloration from normal general hygiene upkeep. If you’re a coffee drinker, smoker, or just want to drastically brighten your smile, this procedure could be for you!
