As mentioned, porcelain veneers perform much the same service as crowns except they only cover the front surface of the tooth. These are excellent for teeth that are stained to the extent that whitening treatments don’t help much or are lightly chipped. Porcelain is a durable material that provides an extremely natural appearance.

Why Is Cosmetic Dentistry Important?

Cosmetic dentistry is important for many reasons. Cosmetic dentistry is what enables your dentist to fix your teeth after an accident leaves them broken. It’s also cosmetic dentistry that fills in a gap if you should lose a permanent tooth. Plus, cosmetic dentistry can help you gain confidence in your smile, which can help with your professional and personal relationships. In the event that you’ve lost a permanent tooth, this type of dentistry can even help keep your teeth in alignment. With a gap between your teeth, your remaining teeth could shift with time.

When Should You Consider Cosmetic Dentistry?

You should consider cosmetic dentistry if:

  • You feel self-conscious about damage to your teeth.
  • You’re afraid to smile or show your teeth to people who don’t know you.
  • You don’t like talking to strangers for fear they may see your teeth.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

If you want cosmetic dentistry, you’re likely aiming for one (or more) of three things: whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or differently shaped teeth. That said, its services don’t all have the same prices and effects. You’ll want to compare these options to ensure care is cost-effective.


Here at Kemper Meadow Family Dentistry, our cosmetic treatments are:


  • Dental Crowns – Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that repair damaged teeth. Once placed, they protect decayed areas from further harm. Their materials are also colored to blend seamlessly with your smile.
  • Teeth Whitening – Teeth whitening (per the name) brightens your grin. To do so, it uses a special bleaching gel to remove stains from your enamel. However, this treatment only affects tooth color; it won’t alter tooth position or shape.
  • Metal-Free Fillings – Unlike metallic ones, metal-free fillings use a composite resin. This material can “fill in” cavities and blend in with your grin. So, treatment both solves and hides your tooth decay.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers are shells set on the fronts of teeth. Once placed, they alter several aspects of your smile at once. This versatility can make them pricey.
  • Smile Makeovers – A smile makeover isn’t a distinct service. Rather, it’s a treatment made up of many cosmetic dental options. That means it acts as the costliest form of cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic Dentistry: A Worthwhile Investment

Cosmetic dental work is a big commitment, but you won’t regret getting it. It serves as a great long-term investment.

You see, a gorgeous grin has priceless perks. A notable one is how a pretty smile can boost your confidence. By doing so, your nice teeth will help you bond with friends and family more easily. You’ll then receive more and better opportunities, raising your quality of life. Such upsides justify the final treatment cost.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

In the end, dental insurance rarely ever covers cosmetic dentistry. It sees the field’s services as medically needless. Even so, there are other ways to make it more budget-friendly.

For example, look at our office. We offer flexible financing through CareCredit – a third-party financier. By working with them, you could pay for cosmetic dental work in monthly installments. That setup would put an otherwise unaffordable option within your budget.

Who is a good candidate for Teeth whitening?

It is these patients who usually see their tooth whitening procedure last the longest.

How long does Teeth whitening last?

Tooth whitening lasts between one and two years, depending on how well you take care of your teeth, how often you get your teeth cleaned, and what your dietary habits are. Some foods stain teeth faster than others.

Does Teeth whitening work on Dental implants?

No, tooth whitening does not work on implants. This means if you get your teeth whitened and you also have an implant, your implant may no longer match your natural teeth. Teeth whitening does not work on fillings, crowns, bridges, or veneers, too.

Are there any side effects of Teeth whitening?

Following a tooth whitening procedure, your teeth may be more sensitive to hot and cold. Your gums may be more sensitive as well.
