Having a nice bright smile is so important. When you smile, it lights up your whole face, and the world smiles back at you.
If you feel self-conscious about the way your teeth, gums, or bite look, you may try to hide them by smiling less often. That’s a shame. Here at Woodlane Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Woodbury, Minnesota, we want all our patients to love the way they look when they smile.
That’s why we offer cosmetic dentistry — treatments that make your teeth, gums, or bite look better. We get a lot of questions about cosmetic dentistry, and we are always glad to answer. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:
Will my insurance pay for cosmetic dentistry?
Whether your insurance will pay for cosmetic dentistry procedures depends on two things: (1) The type of cosmetic procedure you get, and (2) Your insurance company. Some procedures are cosmetic only, such as whitening treatments, while others improve both appearance and dental health or function, such as implants, crowns, and bridges. Insurance plans may treat these differently. We invite you to call our office at (651) 731-1560 to talk to us about your specific situation.
I’m an adult. Is it too late to get my teeth straightened?
No, it’s not too late! We offer the Invisalign system, which works great for adults and is far less visible than the old metal braces.
How long will dental implants last?
Implants can last as long as 20 years. They look and feel just like your natural teeth.
I wish my teeth looked brighter. What can I do?
We offer several options for teeth whitening, including procedures done in our office and treatments you can do at home. We’d be glad to talk to you about which is the best for you.
