Our cosmetic dentistry consists mainly of treatments that patients elect to have done, meaning they do not treat a health concern. These treatments are meant to improve the overall look and feel of your mouth and teeth. Some of the work is covered by insurance plans (like fillings, bonding, crowns, etc.). There are many others that are likely not covered by most dental plans. In the end, this would be figured out by your insurance team.
Our cosmetic dentistry services include:
Clear Correct (clear braces – no wires!)
Today, teeth whitening is a common treatment. We’ve found that people are always looking to achieve a whiter smile, and we have a lot of options to help you to enjoy whiter teeth! The most common form is a take-home treatment allowing you to engage in the process in the comfort of your own home. We can discuss your whitening needs with you and determine the best way to get you the smile that you want.
Veneers are layers of ceramic (which has the look and feel of your teeth) that are secured and bonded to your real teeth. Veneers are mostly used to correct minor chips, stains, or to straighten the look of your smile. They are as close to real teeth as most dental work can get, and they are very strong and lasting too. Your porcelain veneers will be custom made, and they can be placed over any healthy tooth, top or bottom, front or back.
With veneers, you can quickly achieve a new smile without having to whiten, have braces, or spend countless hours in the office. Veneers are a great choice to cover up stains and spots, chips and cracks, crooked or worn teeth, small gaps, and crowded teeth.
Clear Correct is a clear way to achieve a straighter, more aligned smile without the use of metal braces, which has long been one of the only options. Clear Correct works by slowly moving your teeth into proper space with a series of clear, custom-made, units which are able to be removed. We can design the perfect Clear Correct treatment for you.
Restorative dental work is professionally known as the study, treatment, and handling of your teeth and the structures that support them. Simply put, this involves the repair of teeth that may have been damaged, decayed, or lost. This is done using many varied dental treatments.
Our restorative dentistry services include:
Dental Crowns Dental Crowns are caps that are placed over your real teeth (those that have healthy roots, but are too decayed to support fillings). There may be decay present, a crack in the tooth, or too much of the structure broken off to support any type of filling. This decay could come from poor dental hygiene, or an instance that caused structural damage to one or more teeth. A dental crown can cover the damaged tooth, making it work like new.
Dental Implants A dental implant is a man-made tooth root with a crown on top of it, often used to mimic a tooth or group of teeth. Just about all dental implants placed today appear the same as the tooth with its real root and are placed within the bone. Dental implants are very modern and will give you a beautiful smile.
Fillings Dental fillings are used to fill-in and address cavities. Real-feel, metal-free fillings are a safe and popular option to replace metal fillings. These fillings are made of white dental bonding, and Dr. Titlow can match them to your unique tooth color, so the fillings will be smooth among the rest of your teeth. We do warn you that if you have constant tooth pain, aching, or you are experiencing pain from hot and cold foods or beverages, you may have a cavity. You shouldn’t delay in having it looked at and treated. If left untreated, cavities not only cause severe pain, but can also lead to problems such as tooth loss, gum disease, and even bone loss.
Sedation Services and Levels
We offer sedation during dental treatment, for those who are typically a bit uncomfortable when visiting the dentist. Sedation refers to the use of sedatives during your visit. The sedatives will calm and relax your mind and body.
The levels are:
Minimal, which just tends to relax the body and relieve the patient of any nerves. The patient can still respond and is fully conscious.
Moderate, which puts the patient in an even more relaxed state, and the patient can still respond somewhat.
