Why do patients in the Aurora, CO, area treat their smiles with cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic Dentistry Benefits
Address Aesthetic Issues
A cosmetic dentist can improve the appearance of the teeth by addressing issues such as cracks, chips, discoloration, misshapen teeth, worn teeth, and other issues with natural-looking solutions.
Create a Healthier Smile
Certain cosmetic treatments can help you maintain your oral health in addition to enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign® straighten teeth, making them easier to clean and less vulnerable to problems such as cavities.
Imagine being confident about smiling in pictures or speaking in public. With beautiful teeth comes a renewed sense of pride in your appearance. Many patients find that cosmetic dentistry has profound effects on their personal and professional lives.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry involves a customized treatment plan that includes targeted procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. At Pioneer Hills Dental, we recommend the procedures that will best fit the needs of our patients in the Aurora area. Unlike general or restorative dentistry, cosmetic treatments are elective and not typically covered by insurance. However, cosmetic procedures are an important part of dental care to ensure a lifetime of satisfaction with your smile. Some of the cosmetic treatments we offer include:
Enhancement When You Need It We're Here to Help You Look Your Very Best

The Staff Here Truly Care About Their Patients
"I’ve been to a few other dental places before I found Pioneer Hills Dental and haven’t gone anywhere else since! The staff here truly cares about their patients. They are always thorough in their cleaning and are honest in their recommendations." Amanda Y.
Evaluating Your Candidacy for Cosmetic Dentistry
All patients who are seeking a rejuvenated smile should first be in good oral health. While porcelain veneers and teeth whitening can make smiles brighter, the treatments won't last if your teeth and gums aren't healthy. Our dentist can provide the treatments needed to resolve any issues and set the stage for cosmetic dentistry.
Patients should also live a tobacco-free lifestyle or be willing to quit. Tobacco doesn't just degrade your cosmetic dentistry results; it also takes a serious toll on your oral health.
During your consultation at our dental office, Dr. Wolbaum will assess your oral health and suggest any restorative treatments your smile may need. From gum disease treatment to dental implants, we can accommodate your needs.
Comprehensive Treatment to Fit Your Needs
While there are many benefits to a beautiful smile, a healthy foundation is critical to reaching and maintaining your goals. If you have issues that impact your oral health and function, restorative treatment is a better fit for you and can restore your candidacy for cosmetic dentistry. For those with extensive issues, full mouth reconstruction can transform your smile, restoring the health, function, and appearance of your teeth, mouth, and gums.
Full mouth reconstruction can combine cosmetic dentistry with restorative dentistry to help you achieve the smile you have always dreamed of.

The Latest Technology for Faster, More Accurate Treatment
Our Aurora, CO, dentistry practice features several types of technology so we can provide fast and safe cosmetic results. For example, digital X-rays expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-rays and allow our dentist to take detailed images of your teeth and gums that can be instantly enhanced. This means Dr. Wolbaum can identify any developing issues that may undermine the health of your smile and share his findings with you as you sit comfortably in the dentist's chair. With the help of digital X-rays, our team can also accurately plan your cosmetic treatment so that you spend less time at the dentist's office.
Extending the Benefits of Your Treatment After You Leave Our Aurora, CO, Dental Office
Avoid Liquids That Stain
Some drinks like tea, coffee, and sugary beverages can stain your teeth. If you do drink these liquids, try to use a straw and brush your teeth afterward.
Use Whitening Toothpaste
Using whitening toothpaste after a teeth whitening treatment can keep your teeth whiter for longer. Patients should also attend regular dental cleanings and schedule touch-up teeth whitening sessions.
Don't Misuse Your Teeth
Biting your nails, using your teeth to open packages, and other actions can damage teeth and dental restorations alike. If you like to indulge in especially sticky or hard foods, try and be conscientious of the teeth you use to chew them. For instance, using veneers to bite into hard candy can cause them to chip or crack.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will it be expensive to improve my smile?
At Pioneer Hills Dental in Aurora, we offer many affordable options to help you find a solution that fits your budget. Your dental insurance may cover the cost of some procedures such as crowns or bonding to repair damage; in this case, treatment overlaps into the category of restorative dentistry. We also accept CareCredit® financing to reduce your initial out-of-pocket costs and fit treatment into your budget.
Isn’t cosmetic dentistry just for movie stars?
Everyone can benefit from the self-esteem boost that comes with a more attractive smile. If you are not comfortable revealing your pearly whites for photos, you may find a new sense of confidence after teeth whitening or other cosmetic care.
Are these procedures painful?
Veneers, bonding, and whitening should not cause any pain because they are simply performed on the exterior of the tooth. More extensive procedures, such as the placement of fillings, crowns, or dental implants, will be performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
Can children use Invisalign instead of braces?
Teens above the age of 14 and adults can benefit from Invisalign, but the company does not recommend it for children because their teeth are still developing and settling into their final positions.
Will my results last?
The lifespan of your results will vary depending on the treatment, but some procedures such as crowns and veneers can last decades. With proper care and good oral hygiene, most cosmetic results last several years and may need only occasional touch-ups in the office.
