Reverse Stains & Yellowing
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is the best way to reverse stains and yellowing caused by aging, tobacco use, or the consumption of dark beverages like coffee, tea, and wine. At our office, we offer custom take-home teeth whitening kits. With these kits, you can get professional-grade results in the comfort of your own home!
Dr. Lascari will take impressions of your teeth with dental putty to create a set of custom whitening trays that fit perfectly in your mouth. Then, you’ll be given a set of whitening products and instructions on their use. Simply follow these instructions to whiten your teeth and get a brighter smile without having to leave your home or spend any time in the dentist’s chair.
Reshape & Restore Your Smile
Dental Bonding, Shaping, & Contouring
Dental bonding uses a tooth-colored dental resin to correct cosmetic issues like staining, chips, misshapen teeth, and more. The resin is applied to your tooth, then shaped and trimmed until it looks just like a natural part of your smile. Bonding is fast, non-invasive, and affordable, so it’s a good option if you’re on a budget.
Shaping and contouring (also called enameloplasty) is often used alongside dental bonding. During this process, Dr. Lascari will gently remove a thin layer of enamel from surrounding teeth if they are uneven, slightly chipped, or pointed. This provides you with a more appealing, even smile.
Versatile Smile Enhancement
Veneers are the most versatile and durable cosmetic dentistry option. You can enhance your smile in just two appointments over a span of about 2-3 weeks. Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped dental prostheses that cover up the front of your teeth, and they are typically made out of a durable, tooth-like porcelain ceramic material. They can correct nearly any cosmetic issue, and usually last at least 10-15 years with proper care.
Beauty Treatments for Every Need
Botox & Fillers
As a dentist, Dr. Lascari is deeply familiar with the muscles and other structures of the face, which ensures that she can provide great results with Botox and facial fillers. If you’re looking to smooth out wrinkles and rejuvenate your appearance, the team at Cornerstone Dentistry is here to help.
Get a Customized Treatment Plan
If you need multiple cosmetic treatments to restore your smile, Dr. Lascari will develop a customized cosmetic makeover plan just for your needs. At your appointment, you will discuss your needs and preferences, your budget, and your desired results. Then, Dr. Lascari will create a plan that will enhance your smile and your confidence.
What Imperfections Can Be Treated
With Cosmetic Dentistry?
There are a lot of cosmetic imperfections that are treatable with cosmetic dentistry. One of the most common is tooth stains. Minor-to-moderate stains can be treated with teeth whitening, while more severe stains can be covered up with bonding, veneers, or even cosmetic crowns.
Misshapen and uneven teeth are also often treated with cosmetic dentistry. For example, if your front teeth are small and uneven, they may be covered with veneers to provide you with a more even, appealing smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is also often used to fill up small gaps between the teeth. If you have a large gap between your front teeth, Dr. Lascari could apply dental bonding to the teeth to make them larger and close this gap.
In some cases, cosmetic dentistry can even be used to treat small chips in the teeth. Dr. Lascari may recommend dental bonding, shaping, and contouring to treat these chips, or veneers to cover them up.
That’s not all, either. Dr. Lascari specializes in cosmetic dentistry in Covington, and can help you explore all of your options for treating smile imperfections with cosmetic dentistry. Contact us today to schedule a consultation, learn more about Cornerstone Dentistry, and see how we can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Will Insurance Cover The Cost
Of Cosmetic Dentistry?
It’s very rare for dental insurance to cover the cost of cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is not necessarily required to protect your oral health, so it’s excluded from most policies. There are some specialized policies out there that may cover the cost of cosmetic care, but these are rare. If you’ve got questions about your insurance coverage, we recommend consulting with your insurer for more details.
In general, you can expect to pay out of pocket for treatments like teeth whitening, dental bonding, or veneers. At Cornerstone Dentistry, we do our best to keep cosmetic dentistry affordable for our patients. We even offer payment plans for most treatments through CareCredit, which helps you keep costs under control.
Will The Results Of Cosmetic Treatment
No dental treatment lasts forever, and this includes cosmetic treatments. Eventually, you may need further treatment to keep your smile looking its best. If you’re looking for the longest-lasting cosmetic treatment, porcelain veneers may be right for you. They typically last 10-20 years before requiring replacement.
Dental bonding, another common cosmetic treatment, can last up to 10 years with proper care. After this, your teeth may require further treatment to keep your smile looking great. Teeth whitening usually lasts between 1-2 years. However, good at-home oral hygiene and periodic touch-ups from Dr. Lascari can keep your smile bright permanently.
