What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on improving the appearance of your smile. Preventive dentistry strives to avoid gum disease, dental decay, and soft tissue problems, and restorative dentistry offers solutions to correct those problems. Cosmetic treatments focus solely on moving you closer to your ideal smile.

That said, there are some cases where a treatment delivers both restorative and cosmetic benefits. In those instances, your treatment may be covered by dental insurance. The Westgate Dental administrative team is happy to help you understand all aspects of the cost of treatment. 

There is no such thing as a perfect smile, but you can enhance the strengths of your smile and address any aesthetic challenges. At Westgate Dental, cosmetic treatment never negatively affects the strength or health of your smile.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover refers to a combination of cosmetic treatments. The goal of a smile makeover is to address more than one aesthetic concern and transform your smile. 

Some of the cosmetic dentistry treatments that might be part of a smile makeover include:

  • Opalescence Go™ and other teeth whitening options
  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth reshaping
  • Dental veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Braces or clear aligners
  • Tooth-colored fillings

No two smile makeovers are ever exactly alike. Your treatment plan conforms to your needs, goals, and budget. Many people spend years thinking about how they’d like to change their smile before meeting with a dentist, but there is no need to delay starting a path toward a smile transformation.

How do I know which cosmetic dentistry options are right for me?

Never before have there been so many wonderful treatments to choose from. In fact, many people find it hard to know where to begin. 

Cosmetic dentistry delivers the best results when approached with an artistic eye. The team at Westgate Dental designs customized treatment plans based on your bone structure, the curve of your smile, the size and shape of your lips, and even the color of your skin. 

This level of detail ensures your results align with your features to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Most people who come in for cosmetic treatments are so pleased with their results that they can’t wait to share their smiles with the world.
