Teeth Whitening Rejuvenates Teeth
If you’ve noticed your teeth looking a little dingy or discolored as a result of age, you’re not alone. There’s no way to prevent this natural darkening of tooth enamel, but you can reverse it with professional teeth whitening. Smile Care Family Dentistry offers custom-fit, professional-strength bleaching kits you can use from the comfort of your home. With a 30-minute treatment every night for two weeks, you’ll be flashing your most dazzling smile in practically no time.
Porcelain Veneers Offer a Beautiful Smile Makeover
Porcelain veneers are a transformative solution for teeth that have been affected by a number of imperfections. Chips, cracks, slight gaps, misshapen teeth and staining can all be forgotten with these thin porcelain coverings that instantly transform the size, shape and color of damaged teeth. They’re ultra-thin sheaths of porcelain bonded directly onto the surface of the teeth that show when you smile, and they can be expected to last 10 to 15 years after application.
Assessing Your Dental Health
When you come to Smile Care Family Dentistry for cosmetic dental care, you can look forward treatment that takes your current needs, and future goals in mind. Dr. Javeed will start by completing a full oral exam to assess your dental health. Afterwards, she’ll talk to you about the results you’d like to see and recommend a specific treatment plan. If you have any questions about what we recommend, we would be happy to answer them. We’re here to help you make more informed choices about your care.
Importance of Your Cosmetic Dental Consultation
Not every cosmetic service is right for every patient. That's why a consultation with Dr. Javeed is so important for anyone considering cosmetic care. A full cosmetic treatment plan can often be completed in one, two, or three visits, depending on which service you choose and how many procedures your plan includes. Dr. Javeed can help you determine exactly which services will be needed to help you achieve the stunning results you have been dreaming of.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
As a general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Asra Javeed is more than happy to help you achieve the beautiful smile you’ve been dreaming of. Using cosmetic dentistry, she can improve the size, shape, color, and proportion of your teeth to give you a smile you can’t wait to show off to the world. However, it’s perfectly understandable to have a few questions before you undergo any treatment. That’s why we’ve taken the time to answer some of our most frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry.
Will My Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Treatments?
In the majority of cases, dental insurance carriers will not cover the cost of cosmetic dentistry because they are often deemed as purely elective treatments. However, there are some exceptions. For example, certain restorative procedures, like porcelain crowns, toe the line between restorative and cosmetic dentistry. As a result, your insurance may cover this treatment if it is deemed necessary to restore or improve your oral health. Depending on your individual policy, it may cover up to 80% of the cost.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for My Teen?
We know that teenagers can be especially self-conscious about their image, and we want to ensure they have a smile they can be proud of. That’s why, after a consultation, we may determine that cosmetic dentistry is just what your teen needs. Some procedures, like teeth whitening, may even benefit younger children, depending on their specific needs.
How Long Will the Treatment Process Take?
There is no set answer to this question because the length of time varies based on which treatment you’re undergoing. With teeth whitening, for example, it may take up to two weeks of using the trays before you achieve the results you desire. Porcelain veneers, on the other hands, instantly transform your smile once they are placed, but you’ll have to wait a few weeks for your veneers to be ready. At your consultation, Dr. Javeed will outline a detailed treatment timeline based on your smile goals.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you are not satisfied with some aspect of the teeth you see smiling back at you in the mirror, you may benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Generally, you are eligible for procedures like veneers or teeth whitening if your smile is free from infections like cavities or gum disease. If we detect any of these issues, we’ll have to address them prior to going through with cosmetic treatment.
