Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

There are several different focuses within dental practice. Preventive dentistry includes routine dental exams, cleanings, and patient education. Restorative dentistry focuses on addressing areas of decay and bringing your teeth back to proper form and function.

Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dental practice focused on improving the appearance of your smile. Numerous procedures and treatments are available to reach that goal.

When you turn to Dr. Burley for cosmetic dentistry services, she takes the time to get to know you and understand your personal dental goals. This allows her to create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your very best smile.

What are some cosmetic dentistry options?

Cosmetic dentistry offers many different options, each of which has a set of benefits and limitations. Some of the available procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Dental bonding
  • Inlays/Onlays

Procedures like dental implants, crowns, dentures, and bridges provide great cosmetic results, but also serve a restorative role in preserving the function of damaged or lost teeth.

What are the payment options for cosmetic dentistry procedures?

If you have dental insurance, the first step is to determine if your insurer considers your desired procedure to be cosmetic or restorative. In some cases, insurance will actually cover the cost of treatment that improves the look of your smile.

If you’re paying with cash, you can receive a 5% discount for paying in full prior to the completion of your care. Burley Cosmetic Dentistry also accepts most credit cards, with the exclusion of American Express.

Some patients use Care Credit to finance their cosmetic dentistry. The Burley Cosmetic Dentistry staff is more than happy to discuss your financing options with you during your consultation.

Dr. Burley wants you to have a positive experience from the time you schedule your first appointment to the time you’re leaving her office.

To that end, she makes sure that you understand the scope of work and the full cost of all services prior to beginning your treatment plan. Knowing what to expect is the best way to budget for cosmetic dentistry, so schedule an appointment and get started today!
