Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by dental insurance?

No. Most dental insurance providers consider cosmetic dentistry an elective form of dentistry even though it can provide restorative solutions. When it comes to paying for cosmetic treatment, Dr. Hess offers a number of affordable financing programs with flexible monthly payment options.

Can you remove dark stains on teeth?

Dark stains are usually attributed to deep decay, Fluorosis, Celiac disease, and other medical conditions. Deep dark stains can be very resilient to traditional teeth whitening. With cosmetic dentistry, we can cover those stains provided that your tooth is perfectly healthy otherwise. Some deep black spots on teeth are just a cosmetic issue.

Is a smile makeover the same this as cosmetic dentistry?

No. A smile makeover combines many cosmetic and restorative dental treatments into a plan that completely refreshes your smile. Although, this does not mean that we sacrifice function for beauty when working on your smile. If there are functional issues present, we will fix those first.
