Our dentist and team offer many cosmetic dentistry options to get your smile looking its best!
What Are Some Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?
Very often, stains on your teeth can be removed during your regular cleaning. However, some stains are just too stubborn to be removed this way. Dr. Morrissey may recommend teeth whitening. In this in-office procedure, a powerful whitening gel is applied to teeth, after which a special light is shone on the teeth to activate the gel. Dr. Morrissey may also give you custom-made whitening trays to use at home. These are easy to use — you simply fill them with whitening gel, which our dentist will give you, and wear them for a period of time every day for two to three weeks.
If a crown or another procedure cannot save your tooth and you have to have it pulled, or you have had a tooth that has fallen out on its own, a dental implant is an option to replace that tooth. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. There are three parts to a typical implant: a titanium “root” that is set into the jawbone; an abutment; and the false tooth, which goes on top of the abutment. If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant will not only make your smile beautiful again but will improve your quality of life by making it easier for you to eat and talk.
What Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?
The cost of cosmetic dentistry varies depending on what Dr. Morrissey recommends you have done. Of course, our dentist and team would be happy to discuss all costs with you, as well as payment options. We would also encourage you to contact your insurance provider to see what procedures they may cover.
