Q: I just want my smile to look good. What are some options to help the appearance of my smile?
A: You are not alone. Most people want to have a nice smile since it is the first thing others notice about you. You may be interested in a few minor adjustments or may have concerns that need more attention. Some smiles can be enhanced with simple whitening or bonding treatments. Other smiles need Invisalign®, porcelain veneers, crowns or bridges; gum contouring; periodontal therapy or a combination of all these techniques. Dr. Samaddar will suggest a treatment plan for you based on your goals, areas of concern and the overall condition of your oral health. Contact us today for a smile evaluation to determine what course of action will produce the best solution for you.
Q: I want cosmetic dentistry. Does my insurance pay for it?
A: Dental insurance is designed to assist you in paying for your dentistry. Most procedures are not fully covered by your insurance. Cosmetic dentistry, in particular, is not covered by most dental insurance plans. However, if your tooth wear is due to breakage, sometimes you can have the benefit of restoring teeth and at the same time improving esthetics. This is something we can discuss together when you visit our office. To help you afford your smile, we do offer a variety of payment options in addition to a monthly payment plan provided by our financial partner, Care Credit™. We also pay special attention to maximizing the benefits that your insurance does provide. Ask Cristal how you can comfortably afford your dentistry and maximize your dental insurance benefits.
Q: How can porcelain veneers help my smile?
A: Porcelain veneers improve your smile by correcting a multitude of cosmetic concerns including: gaps in teeth; chips and broken teeth; dull or yellowing teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional means; “gummy smile” (showing too much gum when one smiles); and crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers broaden, straighten, whiten and beautify most any smile. This procedure can be done in as little as two clinical visits. Many of our patients feel like this was the best improvement that could have been done for their overall confidence. Ask us at your next appointment, or send us an email about how porcelain veneers can improve your smile.
Q: I want my front teeth to look better, but I do not want to wear braces. What would you recommend?
A: Dr. Samaddar has a number of ways to improve the look of your front teeth without the use of unsightly braces. For slightly crooked or unevenly worn teeth, a bit of reshaping and the addition of porcelain veneers may be sufficient to give them a bright, uniform look. For more extensive orthodontic needs, another option is Invisalign™, an FDA-approved system that uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth, without uncomfortable brackets or wires.
We would be happy to talk with you further about the option that best suits your individual situation. Attention to detail, respect for the individual and a true concern for each patient are the hallmarks of our personal care and our quality product. We are committed to helping you fulfill your ultimate self-image.
