Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a subspecialty area of dentistry that focuses on the treatments and procedures that can help your teeth and your smile look their best. Dr. Kasiri offers many different types of cosmetic dentistry procedures designed to address a wide array of aesthetic issues.

What kinds of issues can cosmetic dentistry correct?

Cosmetic procedures can help with most problems that dim your smile. These include:

  • Poor teeth alignment: overbite, underbite, crossbite, and other alignment issues
  • Crowded mouth: cosmetic dentistry procedures can allow the teeth to be more evenly spaced
  • Discolored teeth: when teeth are stained, yellowed, or otherwise discolored
  • Chips and cracks in the teeth
  • Dark fillings: metal fillings can be replaced with tooth-colored fillings for an improved appearance
  • Worn tooth edges: when teeth are wearing at the edges due to age or constant use
  • Irregularly sized teeth: when teeth appear unusually large or small
  • Irregularly-shaped teeth: when teeth are oddly shaped and detract from the smile

Which cosmetic dentistry procedures do you need?

Dr. Kasiri has significant experience in cosmetic dentistry treatments. During your appointment, discuss your goals and concerns with Dr. Kasiri. He works with you to determine the types of treatments that can help correct those issues and establish a plan of care when multiple treatments or procedures are needed.

Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Braces

If you have several concerns, you may want to spend some time evaluating your smile in the mirror before your visit to ensure you can explain all your issues to Dr. Kasiri.

Does insurance cover cosmetic procedures?

Dental procedures that are performed solely for cosmetics, such as tooth whitening, are not covered by insurance. However, some other treatments like repairing cracks or chips may be considered restorative, and your insurance may cover it, at least partially.

Ask Dr. Kasiri’s office staff to review your dental plan coverage at your appointment. If insurance doesn't cover your cosmetic dentistry treatment, they can provide information about affordable financing options that can help you fit the cosmetic dentistry procedures into your budget.

A cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Kasiri can be the first step towards a whole new smile. Make an appointment through the online appointment tool or call the office to arrange a visit.
