Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry dedicated to improving the physical appearance of a patient’s smile so that the patient can feel more attractive and confident. This process may involve changes to both the gums and teeth. Cosmetic dentistry may repair a number of different issues, including missing teeth, small teeth, chipped teeth, broken teeth, gummy smiles, and discolored teeth. Many patients who opt for cosmetic dentistry have more than 1 concern.

Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Veneers
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Gum contouring
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants
  • Orthodontics

In some cases, patients may require more than 1 service to achieve the desired result.

Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?

The cost of cosmetic dentistry treatment varies considerably based on the treatment options chosen and the patient’s insurance coverage. Some procedures, including those that are considered purely cosmetic, may not be covered under the patient’s dental insurance policy at all. However, some other treatments, such as tooth-colored fillings or crowns, may be covered. Dr. Ebrahimi will provide patients with a detailed quote before beginning treatment.

How does Dr. Ebrahimi approach cosmetic dentistry?

When a patient expresses the desire for cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Ebrahimi will begin by performing a full examination and making note of all of the patient’s concerns. Next, she will use this information to propose a customized treatment plan that addresses all of the patient’s problems.

Is cosmetic dentistry painful?

Dr. Ebrahimi takes steps to minimize discomfort during every procedure. Depending on the type of procedure, the patient may need local anesthetic or sedation. Sedation is also available to patients who experience dental anxiety, as well as those who want to minimize the number of appointments necessary to complete treatment. Patients who experience pain at any time during treatment should make sure Dr. Ebrahimi is aware of it.

How long does cosmetic dentistry treatment take?

Every patient is different. While some patients may need only 1-2 treatments to achieve their desired result, others may need more treatment sessions. Dr. Ebrahimi will be able to estimate how many treatment sessions a patient will need after developing the patient’s customized treatment plan.
