When it comes to your teeth, there are a few stand-out procedures that you can have done that will really make a big impact on the way you feel about your smile. Cosmetic dentistry gives patients the ability to correct both minor and major flaws and greatly improve the appearance of your teeth.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry may be the answer you’ve been seeking, and here are the reasons why.

Why cosmetic dentistry is important

If you’re uncomfortable with the way your smile looks, without even realizing it, you may be shying away from smiling in a social setting or hiding behind a hand when you grin. The appearance of your teeth can keep you from having the confidence you deserve to go after things like relationships, promotions at work, and can give you general anxiety wondering if someone is looking at you, or at your teeth.

With the help of cosmetic dentistry, we can help you transform your smile by correcting things like:

  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Crooked teeth
  • Noticeably shorter or longer teeth
  • Cracks and chips
  • Stains and discoloration
  • Tooth decay
  • Dental injuries
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Misalignment

Restoring Your Smile With Restorative Dentistry

Beaudean Dentistry is ready to help you enhance your natural smile and restore your confidence. We offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments, and some of these treatments are very affordable, and may even be covered by your dental insurance.

We offer options for repairing your smile including:

Dental Bonding

Composite bonding adds new material to your natural teeth, filling in gaps and covering chips. Bonding is completely finished in one appointment, is affordable, and may even be covered by your dental insurance.

Teeth Whitening

The tried and true treatment makes a bigger difference than you may realize – until you’re walking out of the dentist office with a bright white smile and the confidence of a movie star. Whiter teeth drastically change the look of your smile with one appointment.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are artificial porcelain covers for the visible surfaces of your natural teeth and create a new, perfect look. The porcelain is highly natural looking and will be undetectable in your natural smile.

Porcelain Crowns

Dental crowns rebuild teeth that have experienced serious decay or damage. These crowns work to restore your smile without even looking like dental work.


Modifying the shape of the tooth to make it look like a nicer, more symmetrical shape through filling and often with the use of dental bonding.

Gum Contouring

Removal of excessive soft tissue that can cover parts of the teeth, making them appear shorter than they actually are and giving off the impression of a “gummy smile”.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Treatments?

In general, cosmetic dentistry is used to improve the appearance of the teeth and mouth and typically this type of procedure is for personal preference, not health issues. It can be challenging to get insurance to cover these types of procedures, and while some procedures are covered by certain plans, not all will be.

Although whitening and gum contouring are almost never covered by insurance, other procedures that can be established as a medical benefit like veneers, bonding and crowns may be covered in many circumstances. A dental exam will help us to establish if these procedures are necessary to help you maintain strong, healthy teeth.

The Answer Is Cosmetic

No matter what you’re looking to improve on your smile, the odds are cosmetic dentistry can help. Treatments can be extremely simple and completed in one short visit, or more involved ,depending on the desired result and the patient’s current dental situation. If you’re looking for a minor, inexpensive way to boost your confidence in your smile, we will work with you to establish a treatment plan that gives you the most bang for your buck, in the shortest amount of time possible.
