Cosmetic Dentistry Worcester MA
While most people only visit the dentist when absolutely necessary, others go beyond dental exams and cleanings and look for ways to improve the appearance of their smile. Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on how the teeth look, rather than how they function.
Cosmetic dentistry offers many options for those who are dealing with cracked teeth, misshapen teeth, gaps, and discoloration. You can even consider cosmetic dentistry if you are missing teeth.
If you are embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth, there are many ways to remedy the situation so you can feel more confident about yourself. Dr. Monica Gobran offers many services so you can look and feel great.
Types of Procedures
There are many cosmetic dentistry options available. Consult with your dentist to find the one that’s right for you.
Teeth whitening. If your teeth are stained or discolored due to foods, beverages or smoking, bleaching them can help restore brightness. There are many teeth whitening products, such as strips and toothpaste, that can be purchased over the counter. You can also opt for a professional whitening by your dentist.
Veneers. If you’re looking for that highly coveted Hollywood smile, opt for veneers. Veneers improve the look of your teeth using wafer-thin shells made of porcelain or resin. Enamel is removed from your teeth to make room for these shells, which are cemented to the front of the teeth.
Bonding. Bonding uses a tooth-colored material – typically durable plastic – to replace fillings or repair discolored, cracked or damaged teeth. The material is applied to the tooth and then hardened with a light.
What to Know
While cosmetic dentistry offers many options to help you achieve the look you desire, the procedures are typically not covered by dental insurance. As a result, they can be considered expensive. Some of these options can cost you thousands of dollars out of pocket, so that will likely factor into which procedures you choose.
Consult with your dentist. By discussing your budget and goals, you and your dentist can create a plan that gives you the appearance you desire without breaking the bank.
