How to Get a Great Smile FAQ
I don’t like my teeth or my smile – what can I do?
A wide variety of options are available to improve tooth function and how your smile looks. Check out our “Cosmetic Procedures” section to see how other patients with similar problems were helped and call us for a free consultation to get started on your new smile.
How much does it cost to get a great smile?
Like most services, cost varies based on the amount of time required and the difficulty of the procedure(s). Generally, improving a smile requires a combination of treatment options such as bleaching, reshaping gums, and using bonded materials (resin or porcelain) to improve the appearance of the teeth. A great way to start is by having a consultation with our dentist to determine how you can reach your goals. Improving your smile is an investment in you. Learn more about our dental financing.
I have dental insurance. Will it pay for my new smile?
Most dental insurance has very low total benefits per year, which may offset the cost for regular checkups, but probably won’t pay toward cosmetic services. Insurance is a business; thus, your carrier will often contract to pay for the least expensive option instead of the best solution for your particular needs or desires. Our dentists will work to maximize your benefits, and may have suggestions for alternative methods of financing so you can obtain the treatment of choice. Call us and ask more about dental insurance and financing.
What are some benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
A great smile should improve your self-confidence, which can have a positive impact on the social and professional aspects of your life. Cosmetic dentistry is not just about pretty smiles though. New techniques and materials are available for back teeth as well as those seen when you smile. Now your mouth can look great, get healthy, and function better, all at the same time. Ask our experienced dentist what’s available for you.
What is a dentist’s responsibility?
At Desingers Smiles Dentistry, our experienced dentists are responsible for giving their patients a complete oral and dental examination and then conveying those results to the patient in a clear manner. Their responsibility is to give a thorough examination no matter what procedure the patient is seeking.
How many office visits will it take to fix my teeth and improve my smile?
This varies with each individual, depending on the need. Sometimes, you can dramatically improve your oral health and appearance in just a couple of visits. Our dentists will work to make your treatment as convenient as possible, perhaps choosing slightly longer visits instead of frequent trips to the office. Discuss your goals and concerns with your dentist so the best plan can be developed for your individual situation. If you start today, a new smile can be yours sooner than you think.
