What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
The definition of cosmetic dentistry is simply any professional dental treatment that is primarily concerned with the physical appearance of your smile. Unlike preventive dentistry or restorative dentistry, which entail treatment that focuses on the health and function of your smile, cosmetic dental procedures are designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile and your face.
However, the good news is that many cosmetic dental options also improve the health and function of your teeth. For example, porcelain veneers provide a beautiful smile makeover by covering the front of an unattractive tooth. They also can protect the health of a chipped tooth, or can even fix malocclusion by providing a balanced bite for short, uneven teeth.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
There are many benefits to cosmetic dentistry, including:
- Creating a warmer smile
- Providing a younger looking smile
- Increasing your self-confidence
- Improving social interactions and first impressions
- Improving job/career options
- Creating a healthier feeling and looking smile
Cosmetic Dentistry at Dentistry on Broad
Some examples of cosmetic dental procedures that we offer at our office include:
Veneers are razor thin “shells” that are designed to fit over the front of an unattractive tooth. These shells are made of porcelain so that they look extremely natural. They are created to provide a beautiful, unstained, proportional “mask” over the real tooth.
Implant dentistry is a cosmetic solution for replacing a missing tooth. This procedure fully restores the appearance, health, and function of the smile. The treatment entails placing a biocompatible, prosthetic tooth root, or “implant” into the jawbone. This fake tooth root then fuses with the bone for a solid, natural base for your new tooth. Once the implant fuses, a customized dental crown is attached to the top of the root and replaces the missing tooth. This procedure is the ideal way to replace a missing tooth.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental options because it is affordable, comfortable and provides a quick smile makeover. At our office, we use Opalescence whitening. This system offers 4 different concentrations so that patients can receive whitening treatment that is safe and effective for their unique case.
Full Porcelain Crowns
Dental crowns are used to completely encase a weak or unattractive tooth. It works like a veneer, however, a crown completely surrounds the entire surface area of the tooth instead of just the front. Our crowns are made completely from porcelain. Porcelain is the ideal material for providing beautiful, natural looking smiles.

Does it hurt?
Cosmetic dental procedures come in many different forms of treatment. Some are more invasive than others and this is what determines the level of comfort for each procedure. However, regardless of whether your treatment requires oral surgery or just minor fixes, Dr. Dudley Beaty is skilled in using the right amount of anesthetics for the most relaxing and comfortable treatment possible.
We offer a variety of different forms of anesthetics to cater to your needs. Trust our team to provide comfortable dentistry no matter your procedure.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered By Insurance?
Unfortunately, the cost of cosmetic dentistry is not typically covered by insurance. However, as noted above, cosmetic dental procedures can sometimes be considered a “restorative” procedure if the treatment is crucial to the health or function of your teeth. Sometimes, in these cases, the cost of cosmetic dental treatment can be covered by insurance. Our team can help you determine if your provider will cover your dental work or not.
