While access to dental services such as cleanings, tooth extraction and fillings are essential for every individual to maintain sound oral health, many people covered by dental insurance look into cosmetic dentistry to improve their confidence.
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses the use of veneers and dental implants, but has lately received the most attention for innovative teeth whitening techniques, Black Hills Today reports.
"There are various whitening products available over the counter for home use," Dr Anh Nguyen of the Ray Dental Group in Rapid City, South Dakota, told the news source.
She added that "by visiting a dentist who is trained to whiten teeth and advise in good oral hygiene practices, you can be sure to obtain that whiter smile you are looking for."
Patients with chipped or crooked teeth may opt to be treated with plastic, ceramic or porcelain veneers, which are coatings tailored by dentists to cover a tooth's surface.
Additionally, dental implants can be a low-maintenance alternative to using dentures for patients who are in good health.
The American Dental Association recommends retaining a dental surgeon for implants, as the procedure requires the doctor to fuse the replacement tooth to the jawbone.
