Cosmetic Dentist Creating Dazzling Financial District Smiles

Can You Improve the Way My Smile Looks?

At Devonshire Dental Associates, we understand that image is very important for many of our patients. Truthfully, even healthy teeth can end up falling victim to common cosmetic flaws like stains, chips, cracks, and more – but our team of experienced doctors has a solution. Our cosmetic services can create dazzling transformations, helping you finally smile with all the confidence you deserve. All you need to do is schedule a consultation here in downtown Boston to get started!

Porcelain Veneers

How Can Veneers Make My Teeth Look Better?

Closeup of smile after cosmetic dentistryPorcelain veneers are dental restorations that are designed to be extremely thin in nature. This is so they can fit comfortably and naturally over the visible surfaces of your natural teeth, hiding years of cosmetic imperfections safely from view. Veneers are ideal for patients who’d like to give certain teeth a complete makeover; they can even be used to alter the size or shape of these teeth to better match the rest of your smile.

Veneers are crafted from high-quality, tooth-colored ceramic materials, and their resistant nature helps them stand up to gradual staining better than your original tooth enamel. With proper maintenance both at home and in our office, patients can expect to enjoy them for 10-15 years or even longer.

Metal-Free Restorations

Are There Tooth-Colored Options for Dental Crowns and Other Restorations?

Having to make the choice between correcting dental problems with restorative work and sacrificing your natural smile can be a heart-wrenching one – that’s why our doctors are proud to have combined the best of both worlds in metal-free restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges, and more. These restorations are crafted from tooth-colored materials that both feel and look like your original tooth enamel; in fact, they even reflect light in the same way! They’re also durable, functional, and even safe for patients with metallic sensitivities or outright allergies.

Direct Bonding

Can You Fix Chips and Cracks in My Teeth?

Closeup of smile following fillingsIf your smile is suffering from minor chips, cracks, or gaps between teeth, direct bonding is the easiest way to correct the problem. This useful cosmetic service only takes a single appointment, and the results can serve you well for several years. One of our doctors will simply apply tooth-colored composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to the affected area of the tooth and then sculpt it into a pleasing, seamless addition that covers the problem.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Can You Whiten My Teeth?

Woman's smile compared with tooth color chartOf course. Teeth whitening is easily one of the most popular cosmetic services in the dental field today, and it’s not hard to understand why. A wide variety of circumstances can lead to discolored and stained smiles, including coffee, wine, certain fruits, medications, old age, and even simple genetics. If you’re ready to refresh your look, in-house teeth whitening is the answer! This procedure is completed over the course of just a single appointment, and patients can expect their tooth enamel to be several shades brighter by the end.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Can I Whiten My Smile At Home?

Man smiling on couchDefinitely! Some of our patients aren’t interested in making big, dramatic changes to their smiles overnight. Instead, they’d like to undergo a more gradual transformation that happens on their own schedule. In this case, we can provide high-grade whitening gel and custom-made oral trays. Your only job is to combine the two and wear them together for a certain amount of time (usually an hour or two) each day, whenever you have the free time. Many patients see improvement after only one use!

Gum Recontouring

Can You Fix An Uneven or “Gummy” Smile?

Closeup of flawless teeth and gumsMany patients are surprised to learn that their teeth aren’t actually the culprit when it comes to a smile that appears overly short or uneven in nature – it’s the gum tissue! An excess amount can cover perfectly healthy and beautiful tooth structure from view for no reason, as well as cause symmetrical issues that leave patients self-conscious. Our doctors can contour the gum line to correct these problems, removing unnecessary gum tissue and carefully shaping the area to create a pleasing and normal appearance. 

Invisalign® Clear Braces

Can You Straighten My Smile Without Brackets and Wires?

Correctly aligning your teeth and correcting your occlusion is not only cosmetic but will also benefit the overall health of your mouth. This modern treatment option uses clear, customized aligners instead of the traditional braces model. All the patient has to do is wear their aligners as directed, and they can look forward to enjoying a straighter smile while still feeling confident in their day-to-day life.

Frequently Asked Questions – Cosmetic Dentistry

If you’re dissatisfied with the smile you see in the mirror, it might be time to visit your cosmetic dentist in Financial District. Our team is wholeheartedly dedicated to boosting your confidence by helping you attain a set of pearly whites you can’t wait to show off. Just give us a call to learn more about how you can get started. We’ll be happy to address any concerns you may have. In the meantime, we’ve answered a few of the questions we get asked the most often.

How Much Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?

The answer to this question is different for every single patient. The price of your treatment will depend on the imperfections you wish to correct and which services will best accomplish that goal. Generally speaking, quick and easy services like bonding and teeth whitening cost less than more personalized services like porcelain veneers. After discussing your options at your consultation, we can lay out a cost estimate for you.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance?

Since most cosmetic procedures are not deemed necessary to restore or improve your oral health, dental insurance is unlikely to cover them. However, some treatments, like dental crowns, might actually be required to preserve the structural integrity of your tooth. In that case, your insurance might partially cover the cost.

Here at Devonshire Dental Associates, we are in-network with Cigna, Delta Dental and BlueCross BlueShield. Even if you have a different plan, though, we can gladly take a look at it to find out if you qualify for any benefits.

How Long Will My Results Last?

It depends on which services you receive. Gum recontouring delivers permanent results, and the results of Invisalign can last a lifetime if you wear your retainer as prescribed. For most of our other services, your results will usually last longer the better you take care of your teeth with proper oral hygiene and routine checkups with your dentist in Financial District.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Come with Any Health Benefits?

Believe it or not, getting cosmetic dental work done can sometimes make your smile healthier. For instance, straightening your teeth with Invisalign can make them easier to clean, reducing your risk for cavities. Gum recontouring can make you less likely to develop gum disease. Dental crowns can protect a vulnerable tooth from additional damage. Even a simple teeth whitening treatment can improve your oral health. Seeing a bright smile in the mirror will make you more inclined to keep it that way. Many patients find that they’re more likely to brush, floss, and see us for checkups regularly after they’ve improved their smiles with cosmetic dentistry.
