What types of cosmetic dentistry treatments are offered at our Carmel dental practice?
Our Featured Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
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.
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.
If you would like to brighten your smile, our dentist offers take-home teeth whitening kits and in-office Philips Zoom!® whitening. Our take-home kits can provide dazzling results in two to three weeks. All you have to do is wear a custom-fitted tray filled with whitening gel for about an hour a day. An in-office treatment can significantly brighten your smile in less than an hour.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 straight and beautiful.
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.
Tooth loss can have a significant negative impact on your appearance, health, and oral functions. Dental implants are small threaded posts designed to replace missing tooth roots. Once healed, they can support lifelike dental restorations to complete your smile.
Some patients have several cosmetic issues that they want to correct. Our dentist can design a fully personalized smile makeover to address your concerns and dramatically enhance your appearance. This dental care plan combines several procedures into one streamlined process.

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 purposes. 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 your treatment to fit your out-of-pocket budget, from using more cost-effective materials to recommending alternative procedures.
If I have tooth decay or another oral health issue... Can I still undergo cosmetic treatment?
If you suffer from oral health concerns, they must be addressed before any cosmetic dentistry treatments can be performed. This is to ensure a healthy foundation for your cosmetic treatments. Your dentist will determine if your teeth and gums are healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry during your initial consultation.
Our Carmel dental practice offers a wide range of treatments to meet all of your dental care needs, including restorative treatments such as dental implants, dentures, and more. We want each patient to have a smile that is beautiful, healthy, and fully functional.
