What Are the Procedures and What Do They Cost?
At Independence Dental, we are pleased to offer several cosmetic dentistry procedures to help our patients enjoy smiles that are as beautiful as they are healthy. When you schedule a cosmetic consultation at our office, we will consider the following treatments and determine which is best for your smile:
- Porcelain Veneers: This treatment is reserved for healthy teeth that are cosmetically imperfect. It involves placing thin, customized porcelain shells over the front surface of the teeth that show when you smile. This procedure involves two visits to the dentist and represents a significant investment in your smile. While they may cost more, veneers can also last up to 20 years. The total price will be determined by how many veneers you need to have placed.
- Orthodontics: If dental misalignments like gaps between teeth, teeth crowding, or overbite, underbite, or crossbite are affecting the appearance of your smile, your cosmetic dentist may recommend orthodontics. This treatment will cost thousands of dollars but improves oral and overall health in addition to improving the overall appearance of your smile.
- Smile Makeover: For a comprehensive solution to dental imperfections, the smile makeover offers a wonderful solution. This treatment can involve several procedures from cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry as needed. The cost will vary greatly based on which procedures you need.
Will Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
Dental insurance is typically reserved for treatments which maintain or restore your oral health. Therefore, elective cosmetic procedures are typically not covered by an insurance plan. However, orthodontic treatment is often eligible for some discounts. If your cosmetic procedure is not covered, you can still make paying for it more convenient with options like CareCredit, a third-party financier which works like a credit card to help you make smaller payments on the treatments you need.
