Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations or orthodontic appliances to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, or bite. Most cosmetic procedures are elective, but some can also enhance your oral health. For example, by straightening your teeth with Invisalign®, you can reduce the risk of cavities, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
TLN Family Dental offers various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment. It uses removable aligners made of a material called SmartTrack®, to improve the position of your teeth and jaw. TLN Family Dental prescribes Invisalign to adults and teens. The appliances can correct several issues, including crooked teeth, crowding, and bite abnormalities.
Dental bonding repairs damaged or decaying tooth enamel with composite resin. Composite resin has the same color and light-reflecting properties as your natural enamel. When the material dries, it restores your chewing and biting abilities while preventing additional damage.
TLN Family Dental offers in-office teeth whitening with the Opalescence® system. Opalescence teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to make your teeth several shades lighter*during an outpatient procedure.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that your dentist bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. They cover up minor cosmetic imperfections, like chips, cracks, or stains. With routine checkups and good oral hygiene, veneers last 12-15 years* on average.
If you’ve lost one or more permanent teeth due to trauma, poor oral hygiene, or extractions, TLN Family Dental might recommend dental implants. Implants are metal posts that your dentist inserts into your jaw. Then, they integrate with your bone, providing a base for restorations, like crowns, bridges, or dentures.
If you have missing teeth and a misaligned bite, TLN Family Dental might recommend DSD. This approach uses several different cosmetic treatments to enhance the appearance of your teeth and gums. To ensure you’re satisfied with the treatment outcome, TLN Family Dental uses special smile design software, allowing for greater accuracy and precision.
Most cosmetic dental procedures are elective, but every insurance policy is different. If you have questions about what your dental insurance does or doesn’t cover, contact your provider before requesting a consultation at TLN Family Dental.
