Our Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Here at Ase Dental, we offer a variety of cosmetic procedures so each patient can receive personalized care for their dental needs. Explore our treatments below and see which will be best for your smile.
If you want to reshape your tooth’s enamel, then cosmetic contouring is a great option. Also known as tooth reshaping, Dr. Bassford offers contouring to patients looking to enhance minor dental flaws. Whether you’re trying to eliminate stains, repair chips or cracks, or improve overcrowding teeth, cosmetic contouring can help.
A dental filling is used to protect a tooth that’s suffered from decay. Our tooth-colored fillings won’t only protect your tooth, but they’ll also blend in perfectly with your natural teeth, improving your smile’s appearance. If you have a cavity, Dr. Bassford will properly restore your tooth before treating it with a cosmetic filling.
When you begin to notice that your teeth are discolored and yellow, a professional teeth whitening treatment is a great option to brighten them. With a professional whitening treatment, you’ll see instant results after your first visit. Additionally, most patients say they don’t feel any sensitivity like you do with over-the-counter teeth whitening products, making our in-house treatment safer and more reliable.
Do you have overcrowded, crooked, or gapped teeth? SureSmile is an orthodontic treatment that can straighten your teeth discreetly and quickly compared to traditional braces. Dr. Bassford will examine your smile and create custom clear aligners designed to deliver precise teeth alignment with the help of advanced technology.
If you’re looking for that picture-perfect Hollywood smile, then porcelain veneers are the solution for you. Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are permanently placed over the surfaces of your teeth. They help correct dental imperfections like crack, chips, discoloration, misalignment, and more.
When your smile has been damaged by dental trauma, infection, or decay, sometimes the best option to restore your tooth’s health and beauty is with dental crowns or bridges. A dental crown is a cap placed over your tooth that generally protects and enhances your tooth. A bridge is typically used for patients who have suffered from tooth loss. Depending on your condition, Dr. Bassford will decide if these treatments are best for you, otherwise, she may recommend dental implants as a permanent alternative.
Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dental Procedures?
Typically, most dental insurance providers won’t cover cosmetic treatments because they’re deemed as a personal choice rather than as a necessary medical procedure. In some cases, companies may pay a portion of the cost if cosmetic treatment is needed to complete a restorative procedure.
Otherwise, we work with CareCredit, a financing option that allows you to receive treatment for any dental procedure and allows you to pay at a monthly rate. Ask our team about this option during your consultation and we can help you apply for it.
