When serious imperfections make you feel self-conscious about the way you look, our team is here to deliver transformational results with dental veneers. Made out of thin sheaths of porcelain, these custom restorations act like coverings that fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. They are semi-permanent due to the small amount of enamel that must be removed, but they can last a decade or longer with proper care and maintenance. Veneers are great if you are trying to hide tooth chips, cracks, stains, discoloration, minor gaps, minor misalignment, or misshapen teeth.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Damaged or decayed teeth deserve proper protection. While traditional amalgam was once the only way dentists could offer a viable repair, there is now another option – metal-free restorations. With full porcelain dental crowns and bridges, we can treat your problem area without the use of metal. Instead, our materials will blend into your smile, offering a more natural-looking and pleasing aesthetic. These crowns are just as durable and long-lasting, meaning you will enjoy a fully functional smile for years to come without the unsightly look of metal.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Minor imperfections can sometimes be more disheartening than major ones. Whether it is a small crack, chip, or fracture in your tooth, you can opt for a more conservative option – cosmetic bonding. Using color-matched composite resin, we can apply it directly onto the tooth enamel, shaping and sculpting it into place. Not only will it adequately cover the imperfection, but it will blend in beautifully with your existing smile so that no one can tell you’ve had work done.

Teeth Whitening

Eliminating stains and discoloration doesn’t have to be an arduous process. While you may be tempted to purchase a cheaper whitening kit over the counter at your local drugstore, you’ll find it is worth more of your time and money to see a professional. At Distinguished Dental, Dr. McIntosh offers in-office and take-home teeth whitening trays to help meet your needs. Whether you want fast results with a high-grade bleaching gel that is applied in-office, or you prefer to whiten on your own time using customized trays as part of our take-home kit, you can see a noticeable difference in your smile in no time at all.

Smile Makeovers

Multiple aesthetic dental imperfections often require more than one type of treatment. This is why we offer smile makeovers. Dr. McIntosh and our team can build a treatment plan that includes two or more services (i.e., veneers, teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, or metal-free restorations) that will target problem areas of your smile to create a beautiful new aesthetic that gives you the confidence boost you need.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Cosmetic dentistry can take many different forms. Before you decide on a treatment meant to enhance the appearance of your smile, you should clear up any concerns that are on your mind. You can start by reading the following FAQs and discovering the answers to a number of common cosmetic dentistry questions. Then, if there’s anything you wish to know that isn’t discussed here, you can reach out to our office and speak to our team.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Under normal circumstances, cosmetic dentistry is considered very safe. It’s worth noting, however, that any oral health problems will need to be taken care of before you can have cosmetic treatments performed. This is to avoid problems later down the line. As just one example, a veneer that covers the front of your tooth might get in the way of having a cavity properly treated.

It's always better to leave cosmetic dentistry in the hands of a professional. You can buy teeth whitening products at the store, but the ingredients they use could end up causing issues for your teeth and gums. Meanwhile, professional whitening only uses ingredients that have been shown to be safe for the mouth.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a purely elective treatment, so it ultimately comes down to whether or not you are unhappy with the way your smile currently looks. Common reasons to pursue cosmetic dentistry include discolored spots on your teeth and damaged enamel. Some patients also want to brighten their grins as part of an effort to look younger. If you set up a consultation with us, we can discuss whether cosmetic dentistry is a good option in your case.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Some cosmetic dental treatments have longer-lasting results than others. It should be noted that relatively quick treatments often have shorter lifespans than more involved ones. For instance, cosmetic dental bonding can be completed in just one visit and often lasts for about 5 to 10 years. In contrast, veneers require at least two appointments and have been known to last for around 15 years (and sometimes longer).

You can maintain the results of your cosmetic dental treatment for as long as possible by maintaining good habits such as brushing regularly and avoiding foods that leave stains. Our team can give you an overview of steps you can take to maintain your beautiful new grin.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

The answer to this question is typically no since dental insurance companies are usually only willing to pay for medically necessary procedures. That said, if a cosmetic dental treatment improves your oral health in any way, your insurance plan might help pay for it. Metal-free restorations and veneers are good examples, as they can potentially be used to repair teeth that have been damaged. Talk to us if you need help understanding the specifics of your insurance policy and the coverage it provides.
