Cosmetic Dentistry Benefits
Address Aesthetic Issues
A cosmetic dentist can improve the appearance of the teeth by addressing issues such as cracks, chips, discoloration, misshaped 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:

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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will it be expensive to improve my smile?
At Pioneer Hills Dental, 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.
