Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
That depends on a number of factors, including what type of work you want done. It’s true that some types of cosmetic dentistry can be expensive, and because insurance companies generally don’t cover what they consider to be non-essential services, they are likely not covered by insurance. That said, some are much more affordable and in some cases there may be a case we can make to show your insurance company that the work is necessary. We can also work with you to find the best dental discounts and financing options.
Can I replace a smile I don’t like with dentures?
If your smile is less than perfect then you may be frustrated and want to simply have your teeth pulled and dentures added. The reality is that if your teeth are healthy, there are many ways we can help improve your smile. For example, Invisalign can help with teeth that are misaligned and professional whitening can help with discolored teeth. Don’t give up on your natural teeth until you’ve talked to us.
Is professional teeth whitening better than the kit I can buy at the drug store?
Yes. If your teeth have significant stains or discoloring, then the kits you get over the counter are not likely to get you the white teeth you want. They can be hard to use, require numerous applications before they start working, and will only last for a few weeks. On the other hand, California Dental Group offers teeth whitening services that provide significant whitening in just one session.
If I do get my teeth whitened how long will it last?
It depends on a number of factors, including if you continue the behaviors that stained them in the first place, such as smoking or drinking coffee. In some cases, you may need another application after six months while other people can see results for a full two years.
Is there anything I can do to straighten my crooked teeth?
Yes, there are currently many options to straighten your teeth. Braces are of course an option, though many people now choose Invisaglin. These essentially invisible braces can be removed when you eat, for pictures, etc. This helps you look great and feel confident while your teeth are being straightened, and makes it easy to keep your teeth clean too.
