Questions & Answers
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the area of dentistry dedicated to helping every patient achieve a beautiful, healthy-looking smile — this allows you to feel more confident and attractive. Dr. Poupore will customize these treatments and procedures to meet your needs.
Which procedures are considered part of cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry includes an array of procedures and treatments that can be used alone or combined together to give you the smile you really want. Some of the most common procedures used in cosmetic restorations include:
- Teeth whitening
- Cosmetic bonding
- Tooth-colored fillings made from durable composite resin
- Crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
Some of these options, like veneers and teeth whitening, are purely cosmetic. Other treatments provide restorative benefits while improving your oral health, thus preventing dental issues from occurring in the future.
What is a smile makeover?
Sometimes, a single treatment or procedure is all it takes to get a smile you really feel good about, but in other cases, there are several issues that need to be addressed.
A smile makeover is a carefully-developed, custom-tailored treatment plan that features more than one procedure to address any issues you’re having with your smile.
Makeovers can include restorative and preventive treatments in addition to procedures focusing solely on aesthetic improvement for truly customized care.
Will my insurance cover the cost of cosmetic treatments?
When treatment is performed solely for cosmetic benefits, most dental insurance plans don’t provide coverage. However, when a procedure also provides a restorative benefit, like a tooth-colored filling, most dental insurance plans will offer at least partial coverage.
Our office staff will go over your insurance coverage with you to find your best payment options and determine your coverage and out-of-pocket costs. We can also help you find the right financing plan to make your beautiful new smile affordable.
