Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs – Irving, TX
How does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
Dental insurance plans are unique. For example, some help cover teeth straightening with Invisalign but don’t for other procedures like porcelain veneers. Your coverage will largely depend on the plan you have, but you don’t have to figure out what is and isn’t covered all by yourself. Our team is experienced with working with insurance to ensure that our patients get the most out of their coverage.
Who is eligible for cosmetic dentistry?
Before we resolve aesthetic issues, we need to make sure that we address any oral health issues. For example, if you have gum disease, we will have to postpone cosmetic improvements until after we treat this more serious condition. If we find that you have no problems, we can proceed with your cosmetic procedure. There may be other procedure-specific parameters that need to be met, but basically, anyone with good oral health is eligible for cosmetic dentistry. Schedule a consultation with one of our experienced, talented dentists to see if you’re a good candidate for your desired cosmetic procedure!

Are there health benefits from cosmetic dentistry?
Yes, there certainly are! When your teeth are crooked or overcrowded, it can be more challenging to keep your teeth clean and free from plaque buildup and bacteria. Straightening them provides your mouth with an ideal environment for keeping your smile healthy. More generally, cosmetic dental procedures can help you feel better about yourself. By addressing the way your smile looks, you can give your confidence and self-esteem a huge boost, which can improve your mental health.
