Your insurance plan won’t look exactly like the ones offered by different carriers. We can review your plan with you so that you understand the type of coverage you can expect to receive. Normally, preventive care receives 80 to 100 percent coverage, fillings and other minor procedures are typically in the 70 to 80 percent range, and complex treatments are typically covered at 50%. Most plans won’t pay for cosmetic treatments (though they might if they also carry a dental health benefit).
If you’re looking for an incredibly effective teeth whitening method that is both simple and painless, you’ll love using the Everlasting White take-home whitening system. Over the next 10 to 14 days, you can start to notice substantial improvements in your smile’s overall appearance! Keep in mind that teeth whitening only works on natural enamel, so stained or damaged restorations may be needed to match your newly whitened teeth. Our dentists will help you determine which treatment options will best meet your needs.
While teeth whitening is strong and effective, it does not last forever. This means you will need necessary touch-ups after enough time passes. If you happen to smoke or use tobacco, drink coffee, tea, wine, or other richly pigmented foods, touch-ups may need to be more frequent.
Straightening teeth, fixing the alignment of your bite, and removing numerous gaps throughout your smile doesn’t have to be done exclusively with traditional braces. When you only have mild to moderate levels of misalignment to address, clear aligners from Invisalign can offer a fantastic alternative! Over the course of 12 to 18 months, you can wear a series of custom-made clear aligners, all of which are designed to gently shift your teeth into a more even position. You won’t even need to change your diet or oral care habits to complete treatment!
An excessive amount of gum tissue may not have an impact on your oral health, but it can be a distraction whenever you pull back your lips to smile, or it might get in the way if we’re attempting to place a crown or another type of restoration. Soft tissue lasers allow us to gently remove the unneeded tissue in order to reshape the gum line or make room for a crown.
