Cosmetic Dentistry in St. Clair Shores, MI

Does a chipped or broken tooth cause you to hide your grin from the world? Do you hesitate before smiling in photos? When cosmetic flaws in your smile are affecting your self-confidence, it may be time to consider cosmetic dentistry in St. Clair Shores. Today’s cosmetic dental treatments can help correct your dental issues and help increase your self-esteem.

The Basics of Cosmetic Dentistry

While traditional dentistry typically focuses on the prevention and treatment of oral diseases, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your teeth. A traditional dentist administers treatments that will improve your oral health, while a cosmetic dentist will provide treatments that improve the look of your teeth and gums. Oftentimes, cosmetic dental procedures also improve the health of the teeth, but a cosmetic dentist will remain focused on the aesthetics. At our practice, our experienced cosmetic dentists can create beautiful results that preserve a large portion of your natural tooth, if possible. If you’re ready to transform your smile, call our office today to get started.

Whether you’re missing a tooth or wish to remove unsightly stains, you’ll find the treatment you need at our cosmetic dental office. Our dentists can create natural-looking fillings, close gapped teeth, and much more. Here are some of the cosmetic services you’ll find when you visit our practice:

  • Bonding

  • Porcelain Veneers

  • Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Do Dental Insurance Plans Cover Cosmetic Dentistry Services?

Most cosmetic dental treatment is elective, meaning that the patient has chosen to receive the treatment for aesthetic reasons instead of a dentist prescribing them for the patient’s health. Typically, dental insurance plans do not cover aesthetic treatments, however, there can be exceptions if the procedure also proves beneficial to the patient’s oral health. Call your provider or our cosmetic dental office to explore your coverage options before receiving care. You may also be able to obtain a special insurance plan just for cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Finding the Nearest Cosmetic Dentist

When learning about how cosmetic dental care can help you improve your appearance and confidence, you’ll likely wonder, “Where can I find cosmetic dentistry near me?” A smile makeover is just a phone call away. Give our office a call today to learn more about our extensive cosmetic services. Our friendly staff members are available to answer any questions you may have about treatment, recovery, and your payment options.

How Much Does Cosmetic Dental Care Cost?

Every person’s smile is different, therefore, the cosmetic dentistry cost will vary depending on your unique situation. At your smile assessment, your dentist will thoroughly examine your smile and provide information about the anticipated charges. More complicated aesthetic problems will likely be more costly than minor cosmetic flaws. Our office is dedicated to providing affordable cosmetic dentistry to all our patients. Give us a call to explore your payment options, which include flexible financing plans.
