Cosmetic Dentistry is composed of a variety of treatment options to not only beautify the smile but also restore the utility of your teeth. Chipped, missing or crooked teeth can actually disform your entire smile, your bite and ultimately disfigure your face overtime as your muscles adjust and overcompensate for the teeth that don’t function properly. A cosmetic dentist can restore your smile with procedures listed below
Depending on each situation cosmetic dentistry may or may not be covered by your dental insurance. Cosmetic dentistry is considered an elective by dental insurance companies but restorative procedures are considered medically necessary. A dental procedure will be considered restorative if:
It is medically necessary due to decay or disease
It is medically necessary due to an accident or injury
It is used for purposes other than aesthetics
A dental procedure will be considered as cosmetic or elective if:
It is a procedure that exists to solely enhance the appearance of the patient’s teeth
There are no underlying injuries, decay, loss of tissue or tooth.
