Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

If your mouth is healthy, you can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. It’s more critical to address cavities and gum disease before considering a beautification procedure.

Some cosmetic procedures not only enhance your looks but also improve the function of your bite. Your UpcareClinics provider meets with you to discuss your unique needs and determine which cosmetic procedure best meets your goals.

After a thorough assessment to understand the viability of what you want changed, your provider goes over the benefits and risks of each procedure so that you know exactly what to expect. 

Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Individual insurance plans are highly variable. The best thing to do is to call ahead to learn what kind of coverage your plan offers before undergoing treatment.

Fortunately, many cosmetic procedures also improve the function of your mouth and your overall oral health. For this reason, some insurance plans cover some, or possibly all, of the cosmetic service.

The team at UpcareClinics is well versed in insurance language and guidelines and will happily help you navigate your discussions with your insurance provider.

How long do cosmetic procedures last?

Before you decide which procedure to have, it’s important to evaluate how long the treatment will last. Except for teeth whitening, which requires two yearly appointments, most cosmetic dental work lasts for many years and some last the rest of your life. For instance, porcelain veneers last about 15 years, while implants are permanent.

The team at UpcareClinics loves to educate people about the pros and cons of each cosmetic dentistry solution. Call the office today or book your next appointment online.
