Cosmetic dentistry is a broad term that covers many types of procedures to enhance the look and feel of your smile. Some of the services that Dr. French offers include:
Each of these is considered cosmetic and for beautifying by insurance companies, and therefore are not covered. Veneers and bonds are chosen by those with crooked or broken teeth that would like to have a whole new smile. Clear Connect includes a few different sized and shaped aligners that are removable and most importantly, invisible. This allows for straightening of the teeth without bulky colored or metal braces, with the bands and retainers of old.
White fillings are considered cosmetic because there are metal options that are less expensive and stronger. Since Dr. French is always concerned about your health, he uses the best materials available to ensure the fillings last and look great.
Gold restorations are known to hold longer than any other composite material, so if you want longevity, gold is ideal for certain teeth. Gold is standard premium care and is not taught at many dental schools, but Dr. French is more than skilled at offering this service. Implants of many types are available, based on your intended smile outcome and your budget. Planing and scaling for periodontal disease and gum disease therapy are also offered in this office. Both are not only preventable, but very easily treated in most cases. For more information on your specific case, talk to the Doctor or an Assistant.
