Most Common Cosmetic Dentistry Questions Answered

Some patients have questions regarding cosmetic dentistry but don’t always know where to find the answers. Here, Dr. Keshwani answers burning questions regarding this field of dentistry:

  1.  How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

Because cosmetic dental services are typically not covered by insurance, many ask how much it costs out-of-pocket. While there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist to learn how much it will cost to achieve your smile design goals, and please don’t hesitate to ask about our in-office financing options.

  1.   Is cosmetic dentistry worth the investment?

Although aesthetic dentistry impacts everyone on an individualized basis, many patients boast several benefits of cosmetic dental procedures, such as:

  • A more appealing appearance
  • Heightened self-esteem
  • Potentially better treatment from others (like in the workplace or relationships)
  1.   Who qualifies for cosmetic dentistry?

As general rules, anyone who is interested in improving the way their smile looks could be considered an ideal candidate for cosmetic dentistry. That being said, Dr. Keshwani will also consider:

  • Age: Typically, patients over 18 years qualify for cosmetic dental treatments.
  • Physical Health: If your teeth, gums, and body are in decent health and won’t affect our cosmetic dentist’s ability to carry out cosmetic dental treatments, then you should be able to achieve your aesthetic goals.
  1.   How long does it take to receive cosmetic dental treatments?

Generally, cosmetic dental treatments are considered convenient and completed in one or two appointments. Truly, estimating the time it takes to complete each procedure starts with scheduling a consultation with a local cosmetic dentist.

  1.   How long do the effects of cosmetic treatments last?

The lifespan of cosmetic dental treatments varies from treatment to treatment and person to person. But one of the ways to extend the effects of your aesthetic dental treatments is to see your dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. Here, Dr. Keshwani can keep your teeth tartar-free and let you know if you need to update any cosmetic dental treatments.
