Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Posted on 1/27/2016 by Fairmount Dental Center
A diagram of how a dental implant works inside a patients jaw.One aspect of the work we perform in our office focuses on oral hygiene, both preventing and treating oral disease. The other aspect of the work we perform is improving our patients look, feel, and function through cosmetic dentistry. The term Cosmetic generally has the idea of unnecessary.

In fact, Insurance companies agree with that idea, and reject payment just for saying it. But Cosmetic Dentistry is actually a very broad category that ranges vastly in what we can accomplish. How necessary it is depends on the patient.

Areas of Cosmetic Dentistry include:

•  Teeth Whitening - Whether your teeth are stained due to normal use, daily intake of dark staining foods such as coffee, trying to even the coloring of your teeth due to fluorosis, or due to certain medications taken, teeth whitening falls into the Cosmetic Dentistry area.
•  Dental Veneers - Patients may ask for the placement of veneers for a variety of reasons including gaps, chips, fracture, or teeth being uneven, all falls under cosmetic dentistry.
•  Composite Bonding - Dr. Rollins is able to make simple repairs to your teeth using composite resin. This option provides a strong hold but is not as permanent as other options.
•  Dental Implants - Provide a strong permanent tooth root where the natural tooth has been lost.

Is it expensive?

The costs involved range dramatically. Not all Cosmetic procedures are expensive. We can make a huge difference in your mouth for a relatively low cost. You also may find that your insurance is willing to compensate some aspects of procedures performed.

Other procedures are much more costly, but may provide the comfort and function that you need. Please contact us at Abigail Rollins, DMD, you may be surprised at what we can do..
