What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do For You?

New Smile

For over 35 years, Dr. Roderick Garcia has been providing quality dentistry for his patients in a comfortable modern setting. Of the many dental procedures Dr. Garcia provides for his patients, Cosmetic Dentistry is one of them.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry? Cosmetic Dentistry is any dental procedure that enhances or changes a person's smile. Included in Cosmetic Dentistry are dental veneers, dental bonding, dental whitening, cosmetic crowns, tooth reshaping and re-contouring.

Sometimes before any cosmetic dental treatment can be done, Orthodontics (braces) may be needed to correct a bite, bring teeth closer together to allow for proper veneer placement, correct midline issues or to correct uneven gingival gum levels. The materials used for cosmetic dentistry include composite (tooth colored filling material), porcelain, and ceramic materials.

Does my insurance company cover cosmetic dental treatment? At this time no dental insurance company covers cosmetic dentistry with any dentist in or out of network.

Cosmetic Dentistry has advanced to a point today that beautiful, natural smiles can be created that are long-lasting and easily maintained.
