Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Why is cosmetic dentistry important?

Your smile is the most predominant feature on your face. It’s often the first thing people notice about you, and it’s a key feature for expressing emotions and connecting with others. It’s hard to socialize and enjoy time with friends if you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth and feel like you have to cover your mouth when you talk.

Cosmetic dentistry includes many dental procedures designed to improve your appearance. You may want whiter teeth -- and that’s an important goal -- but there’s much more to cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry restores your smile whether you want to eliminate a big gap between your two front teeth or you want to hide broken teeth.

What types of cosmetic procedures are available at About Smiles?

No matter what you don’t like about your teeth, when you talk with the dentists at About Smiles, they’ll be able to recommend a solution that will improve your appearance. These are some of the most common cosmetic procedures they provide:

  • Teeth Whitening: Safe, effective whitening in one office visit
  • Veneers and Lumineers: Placed on top of teeth to hide stains and cover gaps, chipped, broken, or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Bonding: Resin bonded to teeth to improve shape, contour, and discolorations
  • Porcelain crowns: Placed over the entire tooth to transform its appearance
  • Snap-On Smiles: Immediately change the appearance of your teeth with customized pieces that snap over your teeth

How will you know what to expect after a cosmetic procedure?

When you’re considering cosmetic dentistry, you don’t have to wonder what you’ll look like when it’s done. The team at About Smiles uses the latest technology to give you a better all-around experience -- including an advanced view of how treatment will affect your smile.

Digital imaging: Using digital imaging, we can take your photo, then use software that adjusts your appearance depending on the procedure you’ll receive. We can give you printed images of what you’ll look like after your dental procedure. We also enjoy providing before and after photos so you can see the dramatic difference.

Cosmetic Wax-up: A wax-up is a wax model of what your teeth will look like after a dental procedure. We’ll take a mold of your teeth before treatment and use it to create a wax-up of how they’ll appear when we’re done.


At About Smiles, we are in-network with most major insurance plans. Please contact our office if you do not see your insurance provider listed.
