FAQs About Cosmetic Dentistry

Some Common Questions that are patients have had over the 30 years we have been serving the Los Angeles Community
How do I Choose the Right Cosmetic Dentist?

To find the right cosmetic dentist, consider their education, training, and experience in the specific procedures you're interested in. Look for patient reviews and before-and-after photos, and schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and ask any questions you may have.

How Long Do Cosmetic Dentistry Results Last?

The longevity of cosmetic dental procedures depends on the specific treatment and individual factors, such as oral hygiene and lifestyle habits. For example, teeth whitening results can last from a few months to a few years, while dental implants or crowns can last up to 15 years or longer with proper care.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance

In general, dental insurance does not cover cosmetic dentistry because it is considered an elective or cosmetic procedure. Most dental insurance plans only cover procedures that are deemed medically necessary, such as preventive care, fillings, and root canals. However, there may be some exceptions depending on the specific insurance plan and the nature of the cosmetic dental treatment. For example, if a cosmetic treatment is necessary to restore function or to address a dental health issue, it may be partially covered by insurance. Additionally, some insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost of orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners, if it is deemed medically necessary to correct a bite problem or other dental issue. It's important to review your insurance policy carefully and discuss your treatment options with your dentist or dental professional to determine what your insurance covers and what your out-of-pocket costs may be. Suppose your insurance does not cover the total cost of a cosmetic dental treatment. In that case, some dental practices offer financing options or payment plans to help make these treatments more affordable for their patients.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Painful?

Most cosmetic dental procedures involve minimal discomfort, with many treatments being non-invasive or minimally invasive. For more invasive procedures, local anesthesia or sedation dentistry can be used to ensure a comfortable experience.

What are Some Cosmetic Procedures and their Cost?

Some common cosmetic dental treatments and their approximate costs include: Teeth whitening: Teeth whitening treatments can range from $100 to $500, depending on the type of treatment and the provider. Dental bonding: Dental bonding, which involves applying a tooth-colored resin to repair chipped or misshapen teeth, can cost between $300 and $600 per tooth. Veneers: Dental veneers, which are custom-made shells that cover the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance, can cost between $500 and $1,500 per tooth. Dental implants: Dental implants, used to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function like natural teeth, can cost between $3,000 and $5,000 per tooth. Orthodontic treatment: Orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners, can cost between $3,000 and $7,000, depending on the type of treatment and the duration of treatment. It's important to note that while cosmetic dentistry can be more expensive than other dental procedures, it can also provide patients with significant aesthetic and psychological benefits. Many dental practices offer financing options or payment plans to help make cosmetic dental treatments more affordable for their patients.
