Cosmetic Dentistry in Philadelphia PA

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry focused on improving the appearance of the smile. The goal is to create a beautiful smile that complements your natural features.

Our office can address multiple cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Tooth gaps

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the smile’s aesthetics. However, cosmetic dental care can also improve your oral health. After you receive cosmetic treatments that brighten and straighten your teeth, you are often more motivated to maintain your results. Many patients brush and floss more thoroughly and visit the dentist more often after cosmetic treatment.

What to Expect: Cosmetic Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA

When you meet with Dr. Weinstock for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, he will examine your teeth and gums and assess your oral health. You should share with him what bothers you about your smile and what you hope the outcome will be. Dr. Weinstock will create a treatment plan based on your oral health, cosmetic goals, and budget.

He offers many cosmetic dentistry treatments in Philadelphia for his patients, including:

  • Teeth Whitening: We use ZOOM teeth whitening treatment in our office and take-home whitening trays to brighten teeth by multiple shades.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells we bond to the front of teeth. Veneers offer a more permanent way to cover tooth stains, misshapen teeth, black triangles, and small tooth gaps.
  • Tooth Bonding: Dental bonding uses tooth-colored Compared to veneers, bonding is a more economical option. We often recommend teeth bonding if you have small cosmetic imperfections. 
  • Dental Crowns: Crowns are caps that fully cover and protect single teeth. While crowns can cover dental implants or secure bridges, they can also cap off worn, stained, and damaged teeth.
  • Dental Implants: Implants restore missing teeth at the root. Tooth implants can restore one or more missing teeth. 

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover can leave you proud to smile and with a younger appearance. Dr. Weinstock, a cosmetic dentist in Philadelphia, PA, has patients who travel from all over to have their smiles enhanced. 

Before a smile makeover, Dr. Weinstock will ensure you have good dental and physical health. If Dr. Weinstock determines you are a candidate for a smile makeover, he will use multiple treatments to fix your cosmetic concerns. 

For each patient, Dr. Weinstock will assess several factors. These factors will help determine which treatments are best for each client. No two patients are the same, so each one deserves a personalized treatment plan to deliver natural, superior results. The factors that Dr. Weinstock looks for include:

Face Shape

The shape of your face affects the shape of your teeth. For example, if a patient has a round face, Dr. Weinstock uses porcelain veneers to create long, square teeth that ultimately slim the face.

Tooth Color

Youthful teeth are normally whiter. Dr. Weinstock suggests patients go two to three shades lighter, but the color may look artificial beyond that range.

A tooth with no translucency does not look real or natural. Skin tone and hair color can also affect the shade selection of dental veneers.

Tooth Size

Longer teeth typically indicate a younger person. Older teeth are shorter because of years of wear and tear. Problems like gum disease can also affect tooth appearance because gum recession is common in moderate to severe cases of gum disease. 

Dr. Weinstock typically lengthens the front central teeth for a more youthful look. Treatments like veneers can cover all the front teeth.

Crooked Teeth

Dr. Weinstock can straighten your teeth without orthodontics by filling in spaces with dental veneers. These can give the appearance of straight, perfectly aligned teeth.

Discoloration

Bonding, crowns, and veneers cover stained teeth. We can shade-match these treatments to the color of your existing teeth. Tooth bonding uses composite resin, while crowns and veneers use porcelain. 

Worn Teeth

By bonding a longer veneer to the original tooth, Dr. Weinstock can add length to short, worn teeth to make them look younger and stronger. Dr. Weinstock may also recommend crowns for the back teeth. 

Chipped Teeth or Teeth with Spaces

Veneers or bonding can cover chipped teeth to repair any imperfections. These treatments can also close spaces between teeth. Our office may recommend closing tooth gaps without braces to save you from long treatment times.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry For Me?

Before cosmetic treatment, we ensure you are in good oral health. If needed, we will provide restorative or general dental treatments. Once you are healthy, we will collaborate to find the best cosmetic treatments to meet your needs.

During a cosmetic consultation, we will consider your medications, dental and medical history, budget, and goals. Because cosmetic dentistry treatments are elective, dental insurance will not cover them in most cases. 

However, our office accepts Care Credit, which offers manageable payment plans. With options like Care Credit, you can get affordable cosmetic dentistry treatment. 

Single cosmetic treatments will also vary in length. While something like a smile makeover may take weeks or months, the results are worth the time. Cosmetic dental care can last many months or years. We will work with you to maintain your smile if you need touch-up treatments.
