What types of cosmetic dentistry treatments are offered at our Carmel dental practice?

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

There are several dental treatments that fall under the cosmetic dentistry umbrella. The primary goal of these procedures is to bring symmetry and beauty to your smile so you can feel confident. Here are some of the most common dental procedures performed at our practice, serving Carmel, Indianapolis, and Zionsville.

Veneers

Veneers are custom-crafted shells designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth, concealing minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, gaps, and intrinsic discoloration. In as few as two visits, your cosmetic dentist can help you achieve a smile that looks healthy, symmetrical, and vibrant.

Invisalign

If you want a straighter smile but are reluctant to wear conspicuous metal brackets and wires, our dentist may recommend Invisalign® as an alternative. These clear mouthpieces gently guide your teeth into proper alignment and can correct most of the issues treated with metal braces.

Teeth Whitening

If you would like to brighten your smile, our dentist offers take-home teeth whitening kits and in-office Zoom! whitening. Our take-home kits can provide dazzling results in two to three weeks, requiring that you wear a custom-fitted tray filled with whitening gel for only about an hour a day.

Dental Bonding

One of the most conservative procedures in dentistry, dental bonding is a fast, simple way to conceal minor dental imperfections such as cracks, chips, and slight spacing issues. We apply the same tooth-colored composite resin material used to fill dental cavities, a quality material that produces natural-looking results.

ClearCorrect

ClearCorrect moves the teeth into their desired positions using clear aligner trays. In most cases, dental patients wear each set of trays for approximately two weeks before switching them out for the next set in the series. Results are comparable to traditional orthodontics.

Gum Contouring

The gums are meant to gently frame the teeth for a balanced appearance. Excess gum tissue can cover portions of the teeth, causing them to look short, boxy, or small. Gum contouring carefully eliminates excess gingival tissue and reshapes the gum line.

Six Month Smiles

In contrast to other orthodontic options, Six Month Smiles focuses on the smile zone, the teeth visible when you smile. As a result, treatment can be completed much faster. In many cases, patients can achieve a straighter smile in just six months or less.

Essix Aligners

Mild orthodontic misalignment can be successfully corrected with Essix aligners. These custom-fit trays fit snugly over the teeth and gently align your smile. These dental appliances are commonly used as retainers following orthodontics to keep your smile looking beautiful.

CEREC One-Visit Crowns

We use in-office CEREC® technology to create custom crowns in a single visit. This computer-aided manufacturing technology allows us to rebuild your smile and restore a beautiful appearance faster than ever before, eliminating the need for temporary crowns or multiple visits to our office.

Dental Implants

Tooth loss can have a significant negative impact on your appearance, health, and functions. Dental implants are small threaded posts designed to replace missing tooth roots. Once healed, they can support dental restorations to complete your smile.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

Insurance generally does not cover cosmetic dentistry. Procedures that are only intended to enhance the look of your teeth, like veneers, are elective and fall within that category. That said, several procedures that are intended to improve the health of your smile can also improve your appearance. For example, dental crowns can fulfill both applications. Depending on the situation, crowns may be covered at least partially by insurance.

Dr. Lande and his staff will work closely with your insurance to maximize your benefits. We can also tailor treatment to fit your out-of-pocket budget, from using more cost-effective materials to recommending alternative procedures.
