What IS cosmetic dentistry? Cosmetic dentistry is used to help enhance the appearance of your natural teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry can help give your smile a *make-over* if you’re not happy with how your teeth look there are procedures that can give you a whiter, brighter smile.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive? This depends entirely on the procedure you want or need. Some procedures are costlier than others as some procedures are more complicated – while others might involve just one or two sessions, and this plays a role in pricing. If you are considering having work done, it is best to discuss your options with your dentist who will be able to give you a better estimate.

Will my health insurance cover the costs? This is something you would have to discuss with your health insurance provider. It would then depend on what cover you have, often health insurance covers general dentistry – check-ups, x-rays, fillings etc., and is often just enough to cover your check-ups. You may find you have to pay for the gap. You would need to contact your provider to discuss what you are covered for and how much that gap might be.
