We can Transform Your Smile with The Following Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures:

Cosmetic Dentistry with Veneers for Crooked or Misshapen Teeth

We can correct your teeth without braces. Crooked and misshapen teeth are not only unsightly, but they can lead to cavities, gum disease, and other oral health concerns. Braces can take months or years to correct your smile, so we offer alternatives. Instead of braces, some patients elect to get dental veneers. Dental veneers done by a dentist in Lincoln, NE, can offer a great smile solution for many different kinds of problems.

Professional Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth Done By a Cosmetic Dentist in Lincoln, NE

Over time, everyone’s teeth shift from pearly white to varying shades of yellow. Normal wear and tear is hard to avoid or prevent. Additionally, drinking dark-colored drinks, smoking, certain medications, genetics, and chemical staining make professional teeth whitening necessary. We offer in-office or at-home teeth whitening options. In addition, we can place dental veneers as another whitening option.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Replacing Silver Fillings

Old silver fillings, also called amalgam fillings, tend to last for years, but they develop cracks due to temperature changes in the mouth and the metal expanding and contracting. This can allow bacteria into the tooth causing cavities or weakening the tooth, which in turn will require a new filling or a crown. Silver fillings are also unattractive and easy to spot. For that reason, we consider filling replacements as more than just a restorative solution!

Cosmetic Dentistry Near Me for Transforming Your Gummy Smile

When you smile, do you feel like too much of your gums show or your teeth appear too small? We’ve had several patients call this a “gummy smile.” A simple cosmetic dentistry procedure, known as a gummy smile correction, can reshape the gum tissue to create a fuller, more cosmetically pleasing smile.

How do I find the best cosmetic dentist in my area?

Although everyone has their own definition of “best” one of the most reliable ways to find a great medical provider of any kind is to ask for referrals from friends, family, neighbors, or coworkers. Checking credentials, searching for before and after of cosmetic dentistry photos, and scheduling a consultation to meet your potential cosmetic dentist are also great ways to find a cosmetic dentist who does great work and makes you feel comfortable.

How do I find the best cosmetic dentist near me?

Using online resources such as Google reviews and the American Dental Associations Find-A-Dentist tool you’ll be able to narrow down a few dentists that are in your area. From there, you can ask family or friends for recommendations. Word of mouth sometimes is an excellent way to find a top-notch dental provider.

Where is the best place to get cosmetic dentistry near me?

The “best” place to get cosmetic dentistry can vary. For example if you are looking for dental veneers you would want to find a provider who has placed a number of dental veneers. The same would go for implant dentistry or any other form of cosmetic dentistry. The bottom line is to make sure that the cosmetic dentist you are seeking is skilled in the area of dentistry you are considering. Ask friends, family, or coworkers for referrals and oftentimes, that’s a great way to find a provider who can complete Your Smile Wish.

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by insurance?

Nearly all cosmetic dentistry cases are done to improve the appearance of your smile and are therefore considered elective. Being an elective procedure means that it is not medically necessary, which in turn, means dental insurance won’t cover the cost. Luckily, our team at Lincoln Family Dentistry offers affordable dentistry and great dental payment plans to make your smile wishes obtainable.
