Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
If you’re unhappy with your teeth, your cosmetic dentist in South Portland can help you achieve the smile of your dreams using the latest advancements in dentistry. Although you’re ready to feel confident about your smile, we know you have a few apprehensions before you’re ready to commit to a treatment plan. We’ll explain everything during your initial consultation. To help ease your worries until your visit, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about cosmetic dentistry.
What are common cosmetic procedures?
You have more options than ever to achieve the picture-perfect smile you desire. We’ll perform a thorough examination to determine your aesthetic flaws and learn more about your goals to create an individualized plan, which may include one or more procedures, such as:
- Smile Makeover: If you have several imperfections, a smile makeover can improve the health, function, and appearance of your teeth. Depending on your needs, the transformation process can consist of multiple procedures.
- Invisalign: Clear aligners can correct a variety of bite and alignment concerns without needing to worry about the appearance of metal brackets and wires.
- Teeth Whitening: Your teeth can become as much as 8 shades whiter using an in-office or at-home whitening system.
- Dental Bonding: Minor aesthetic issues can be fixed using a composite resin material that matches the color of your enamel.
Can my teen benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
There are several cosmetic treatments suitable for teens, like Invisalign and dental bonding. We’ll perform a thorough examination to determine if cosmetic dentistry is the right option for your teen.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
There isn’t a set fee for cosmetic dentistry because the cost is based on your specific needs, like the type of procedure and the number of teeth being treated. We’ll provide you with a custom estimate during your consultation and explain the fees associated with your plan. A member of our team will discuss your payment options. Besides traditional methods, we also accept third-party financing with CareCredit. We will help you find the solutions you need to invest in a beautiful smile without breaking the bank.
Can I use my dental insurance to pay for cosmetic dentistry?
It’s rare for a dental insurance company to cover cosmetic dentistry because the procedures are elective; however, there are some exceptions. Many cosmetic treatments also offer restorative benefits. As a result, you may be able to use your coverage to offset the amount you need to pay if the treatment is necessary for your oral health, like repairing a chipped tooth with dental bonding. Every insurance policy is unique, so we’ll need to evaluate your benefits to see if they can be used for your treatment plan. A member of our team will work on your behalf to file the necessary claim forms for reimbursement. If applicable, we will explain how your policy is being used to pay for your dream smile, as well as any remaining out-of-pocket balance.
