Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

While preventive dentistry seeks to avoid dental health issues, and restorative dentistry strives to correct disease or decay once they develop, cosmetic dentistry focuses solely on the appearance of your smile. 

A significant body of evidence shows that your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, forming the foundation of first impressions. When you feel confident about the appearance of your smile, you’re more likely to share it with the world. 

Cosmetic dentistry offers the chance to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns, ranging from simple to complex. 

What kinds of cosmetic dentistry treatments are available?

Never before have there been so many options for cosmetic dentistry. There is a fit for virtually every set of needs, including for people who need complete smile restoration following traumatic injury, disease, or advanced dental decay. 

Some of the treatments available from CLE Smiles by Dr. Niki include:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Dental bonding
  • Bridges
  • Crowns
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Teeth whitening

These are just some of the ways you can improve the appearance of your smile. As you can see, some of these treatments also deliver restorative benefits. In such cases, you might be able to have your treatment covered through dental insurance. 

How do I know which cosmetic treatments are right for me?

Having so many choices can make it difficult to know where to begin regarding cosmetic dentistry. When you work with CLE Smiles by Dr. Niki, the first step is a personalized consultation. 

During this visit, you discuss your treatment goals and explore available options. There is plenty of time built in for you to ask questions, and you can even discuss budgeting and treatment timelines. 

In many cases, a combination of cosmetic dental treatments is the best course of action. This is often called a “smile makeover” and is an area of specialty for Dr. Niki. Treatments may need to be spaced out over several weeks for optimal results.
