Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Cosmetic Dentistry

How can we help you?

Choosing a family dentist is an important decision. We want you to feel confident when you choose Kinsey Smiles for your dentistry. No question is too big or small. We welcome you to call us with any concerns you might have.

Some of our most common questions are listed right here. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

The short answer is no. Most cosmetic dental procedures are extremely conservative and therefore post-treatment discomfort is usually minimal. Almost all procedures are done under local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. With Regard to Invisalign clear aligners, we find that they are generally much more comfortable than traditional braces since they provide a very light but consistent force on the teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry can drastically improve the appearance of your smile by whitening dark or discolored teeth, aligning crooked, rotated, or misaligned teeth, or by restoring worn down teeth to a more aesthetically desirable size and shape. Regardless of the treatment method used, cosmetic dentistry can drastically improve your overall appearance and self-confidence. 

When teeth and gums are healthy, it is recommended by the American Dental Association that adults and children visit the dentist and have their teeth professionally cleaned and examined twice a year.  For patients with gum disease, professional cleaning is recommended every 3-4 months as well as for those with special dental needs, such as children undergoing orthodontic treatment (ie braces).  If you are unsure how often you should visit the dentist, we would be glad to assist.

Absolutely! We have found that one of the best ways to accomplish this begins with an accurate diagnosis which includes digital photographs and 3-D models of your teeth. After a thorough interview, and equally thorough exam and gathering all of the data needed, we can analyze the data and the photos in the models and then come up with several excellent options. We would then meet with you and take you on a tour of your mouth using the photos and discuss what can be done to restore your mouth to excellent health, function and aesthetics. In advanced cases, treatment can also be phased so to fit your schedule and budget.

We offer professional whitening for dark or discolored teeth. In addition, we can provide patients with Invisalign clear aligners to easily resolve crowded, crooked or rotated teeth. We also offer a variety of restorative solutions using the latest techniques and materials which can restore your teeth to a more aesthetically pleasing size, shape, and color - most commonly done using state of the art porcelain veneers or crowns. We also offer solutions for missing teeth which most commonly include dental implants or tooth colored bridges-both of which can be very aesthetic while restoring function.

A cosmetic dentist is one who has undergone specialized training in order to diagnose and treat an array of conditions related to the aesthetics of a smile. Dr. Kinsey far exceeds the average dentist by spending hundreds of hours every year expanding his knowledge and skill set so that he may provide patients with an extremely high level of care using the latest techniques and the most advanced materials available.
