What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that will improve the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. It involves having one or more elective procedures completed to change certain aspects of your smile.

In most cases, the procedures help improve tooth color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth or a single tooth. However, some procedures also focus on the gums and fine lines around the smile. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to create a more attractive and confident smile. Your Storts Family Dentist will also consider the overall oral health and function of your teeth.

Common Reasons Patients Seek Cosmetic Dentistry

Patients seek cosmetic dentistry for various reasons. The primary motivation seems to be the desire to have a better-looking smile. Many minor dental concerns do not affect your oral health but can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. Some of these concerns include stained teeth, chipped teeth, gaps in between teeth, and crooked teeth.

The cosmetic treatments we offer can address these problems and more. This will help boost your self-confidence, positively affecting your social and professional life. Our diverse range of cosmetic dentistry treatment options will help you achieve a smile that will align with your personal goals and lifestyle.

Some of our cosmetic treatments can even smooth fine lines and wrinkles. All of our treatments will also support your long-term oral health.

Botox, Xeomin, and Fillers

We offer Botox, Xeomin, and fillers in our Ardmore, OK dental office. Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that we inject into facial muscles. It temporarily improves the look of both moderate fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is quick and does not always require a consultation prior to treatment.

Xeomin®️ is created through a unique precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the unnecessary proteins that don’t play an active role in treatment. Xeomin®️ is a uniquely purified neurotoxin.

Cosmetic fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, and soften creases or enhance facial contours. Filler injections are non-surgical and typically completed during an office visit. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation, during which you will meet with your cosmetic surgeon to discuss your concerns and goals. To see how skin enhancements like Botox and other facial fillers can help create a perfect smile, see Botox and Dermal Fillers

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells that adhere to the front surface of teeth. We craft ours from porcelain to mimic the natural appearance of teeth. Your dentist will bond porcelain veneers to the front surfaces of healthy, natural teeth to improve their aesthetic appeal. They are very durable, easy to replace, and not easily stained.

Porcelain veneers are versatile and can address many types of dental cosmetic concerns. Storts Family Dentistry often uses them to address discoloration, chips, gaps, misalignment, and more. They provide a durable and natural solution for patients who want a better looking smile. This popular cosmetic dentistry procedure requires minimal tooth reduction and provides long-lasting results. To learn more about the porcelain veneer process, see Porcelain Veneers.

Teeth Bonding

Tooth bonding offers an instant, affordable smile makeover. This cosmetic dentistry procedure involves using a tooth-colored resin material and applying it to the front surface of your teeth. Your dentist will mold the material by hand into the proper shape. They will then use a special light to bond the resin to the tooth’s surface.

This technique is used to repair or enhance the appearance of teeth with minor imperfections. Storts Family Dentistry often suggests teeth bonding to repair chips, cracks, discoloration, or gaps. It is very versatile and minimally invasive. Your Storts Family dentist can complete it in a single visit to one of our offices.

Most people know dental bonding for its natural look and feel. This makes it an effective option for cosmetic improvements without the need for more extensive dental work. This is a great option for our patients who need a quick and aesthetically pleasing smile enhancement. To learn more about the pros and cons of tooth bonding, see Teeth Bonding.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Cosmetic dentistry offers many possibilities to enhance your smile and overall facial aesthetics. Many patients need help knowing where to start or how the process works. This section addresses some frequent questions and answers about cosmetic dentistry. However, the best thing you can do is schedule a consultation with your Storts Family Dentistry dentist in Madill or Ardmore, OK, to learn more.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of teeth. Other fields of dentistry focus on the health of teeth and gums. With cosmetic dental procedures, we can address your teeth’ color, position, shape, size, and alignment. We can also fix minor tooth damage. These issues can affect your smile’s overall appearance and your confidence. Cosmetic treatments help patients love their smiles and improve their self-esteem.

Does dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

In almost all circumstances, dental insurance will not cover cosmetic dental treatments. Insurance companies consider these services elective, meaning they are not medically necessary.

How long does professional teeth whitening last compared to whitening products you find in a store?

Professional teeth whitening can last for many years. How well you care for your teeth and avoid smoking and consuming foods and drinks that stain them, affect how long the results last. Professional whitening uses bleaching gels with a higher concentration of whitening agents that offer better results than any store-bought product.

While over-the-counter products may provide some results, they will not last nearly as long. In most cases, you will have to keep applying them to maintain their effects. Having a dentist whiten your teeth and properly care for them will give you the longest-lasting results.

Can cosmetic dentistry fix crooked teeth?

Yes, several cosmetic treatments can fix crooked teeth. Straightening teeth may not always be necessary, but many patients want to do it because they want a better-looking smile. We offer Invisalign and porcelain veneers to correct crooked teeth.

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that your dentist will affix to the tooth’s front surface. It will instantly make the tooth appear straighter. Another option is to straighten your entire smile with Invisalign. This clear aligner system uses custom aligners that gradually straighten teeth over time.

Both methods offer aesthetic improvements in your smile. Invisalign addresses the teeth’s actual alignment and shifts teeth into a straighter position while veneers cover the cosmetic issue.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that improves the appearance of your smile with one or more cosmetic procedures. Your dentist will take a comprehensive approach to creating a smile that complements your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth, gum tissue, and lips. The goal is to create a harmonious, attractive smile that enhances your overall facial aesthetics.

Is cosmetic dentistry safe?

Every treatment we offer at Storts Family Dentistry is generally safe. We employ qualified and experienced dentists and dental staff to assist with procedures. However, as with any medical treatment, there are certain risks involved. As professionals, we share each risk with our patients and review each patient’s medical history to reduce the risk of complications.

How can I maintain the results of my cosmetic dental treatment?

The best way to maintain the results of your cosmetic treatments is to take good care of your oral health. This involves regular brushing and flossing and avoiding foods and beverages that can stain teeth. It’s also vital to visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Your dentist will give you specific care instructions when necessary.

How can cosmetic dentistry improve my overall health?

In some cases, cosmetic treatments can improve our overall health. With some treatments, we can fix bite issues, make cleaning your teeth more accessible, and lower your risk of future dental problems. Fixing your bite will help you avoid tooth damage and TMJ disorders. If you can clean your teeth properly, this will reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. These issues are linked to overall health problems such as headaches, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more.
