Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused solely on improving the appearance of your smile. It allows you to feel more confident about the impressions you make in the world and plays a significant role in your overall self-esteem. 


Thanks to advancements in dental technology, you have cosmetic dentistry options that were simply unimaginable just a few decades ago. Whether you want to address a small flaw in a tooth or want to completely transform your smile, cosmetic dentistry has a lot to offer. 

What kinds of cosmetic dentistry treatments are available?

Never before have there been so many amazing treatment options when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. In fact, there are so many choices to consider that it can feel overwhelming. 


Some of the available cosmetic treatment options include:


  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Dental bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures


Some of these treatments offer restorative benefits in addition to cosmetic improvements. In those cases, your dental insurance may cover part or all of the cost. The administrative professionals at Walnut Woods Dental are happy to check your coverage so you understand the cost of various options. 

How do I know which cosmetic dentistry options are best for me?

When you partner with Dr. Kim, you receive personalized guidance to help you select the cosmetic treatments that best align with your needs. This begins with a discussion of what you hope to accomplish through cosmetic dentistry. Knowing where you’d like to end up helps Dr. Kim shape your treatment plan. 


When planning your cosmetic treatments, Dr. Kim considers your bone structure, facial features, and the curve of your smile. She strives to perform cosmetic treatments that bring out your very best and create a natural-looking, healthy smile. 


During your consultation, you’re encouraged to ask questions or express concerns as they arise. If you’re having more than one treatment, you’ll also explore treatment timing and what to expect in terms of expense.
