Cosmetic Dentistry in Peoria, IL

Are a few visible flaws making your smile less than it should be? With a little professional assistance, your stains, broken teeth, unsightly spaces and other dental faults could be a thing of the past. Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever. With today’s advanced dental technology, your cosmetic dentist can give you the flawless smile that you’ve always wanted.

Cosmetic Dentistry: How Is It Different?

The field of dental cosmetics addresses the aesthetic factors affecting your smile rather than those affecting the health and function of your teeth and gums. While traditional dentists treat and prevent dental disease, cosmetic specialists focus on the symmetry, color, shape and spacing of teeth in order to create or restore healthy looking, beautiful smiles. Cosmetic restoration procedures have come a long way. With today’s tooth-sparing dental methods, you can be sure that your results will be durable and long-lasting, and they’ll look completely natural.

Individual Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Our providers use an extensive range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to help craft gorgeous smiles and restore teeth after cosmetic damage. The treatments we employ can whiten teeth, restore missing teeth, close gaps, restore normal tooth texture and more. Here is a comprehensive list of the cosmetic dental services that we offer to our patients.

  • Braces
  • Invisalign®
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Smile Perfected™ 20 Minute Whitening
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

Why Insurance Companies Don’t Cover Cosmetic Dentistry

Several insurance companies offer special cosmetic dental insurance plans, but most standard dental insurance policies don’t cover elective or cosmetic procedures because they don’t directly improve dental health. Exceptions exist for cosmetic procedures that restore function to a tooth. If you’re uncertain about your insurance coverage limits, contact your insurance company to determine whether your cosmetic procedure will be eligible for coverage. To explore various cosmetic treatment options that may be covered, call our cosmetic dental office to schedule an appointment with an experienced dental provider.

Cosmetic Dentistry Cost: How Much Should I Expect to Pay?

Factors affecting overall price include the type and number of procedures performed, restoration materials, treatment for existing dental disease and anesthesia preferences. Our cosmetic dental office strives to provide affordable cosmetic dentistry for all of our patients. We’ll help you make the most cost-effective choices and find the right financial solutions to manage your care. You don’t have to live with unattractive, damaged or missing teeth.
