Cosmetic Dentistry in Shelby Township, MI

When you’re proud of your smile, you feel confident when you interact with others in both your professional and private life. Cosmetic dentistry in Shelby Township can brighten and rejuvenate your smile, letting you spend less time and energy worrying about your appearance and more time accomplishing your goals.

Cosmetic Dentistry vs Traditional Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that promotes a smile that is not only healthy, but also beautiful. General dentistry is traditionally focused only on the health of your teeth and gums with little attention paid to how they look. Cosmetic dentists pay attention to the health of your teeth, but they also improve the look of your teeth and smile. Patients who have perfect dental health can still benefit from visiting a cosmetic dentist if they aren’t happy with a particular aspect of their smile. Dental cosmetics today have advanced to create natural looking, long-lasting results.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures

A range of procedures are available to address a variety of cosmetic dental concerns. Dental veneers can correct teeth that are uneven, have worn enamel, or are chipped or cracked. Dental implants can be used as natural looking, functional tooth replacements. Cosmetic teeth whitening gives a brighter smile that makes for a youthful impression. We are happy to provide the procedures below for patients in need of cosmetic dentistry.

  • Bonding
  • Braces
  • Invisalign®
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Is There Insurance Coverage for Cosmetic Dentistry Services?

In most cases, cosmetic dentistry procedures aren’t covered by dental insurance. Services that are performed solely for the sake of appearance will almost always be denied coverage even though they can immensely benefit the patient. Tooth whitening and bonding to correct a gap between the teeth is hardly ever covered for example. When bonding is done to repair a damaged tooth, it may receive some coverage from dental insurance. Always research your options and check with your dental plan to confirm what they do and do not cover.

Average Cosmetic Dentistry Cost

Several factors determine the cost of an individual’s cosmetic dental treatment. Prices for cosmetic procedures will vary, depending on the present condition of your teeth, the type of treatment you need, how many teeth are being treated, and how much, if anything, is covered by your dental insurance. That’s why we always have an initial consultation with each patient to discuss treatment options and the associated costs. We start by focusing on your ideal outcome and go from there. Please call our cosmetic dental office to learn more about your options for affordable cosmetic dentistry.
