What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Not everyone is born with a flawless smile or straight, gorgeous teeth. But that doesn't mean you can't achieve your desired look and regain confidence. Cosmetic dentistry offers men and women numerous treatment options.
They can improve your dental health and correct and enhance the appearance of cracked, missing, discolored, uneven, and crooked teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can also alter the appearance of your gums by contouring them, so they are in better symmetry with your teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry generally involves any procedure that alters the appearance of your teeth, gums, bite, or smile. This branch of dentistry typically deals with aesthetics, including:
Porcelain Veneers – A porcelain layer is applied to give your stained or uneven teeth the perfect look and shape.
Bonding – Applying tooth-colored resin to reshape chipped, discolored, crooked, malformed, or uneven teeth.
Dental Implants – Forming a secure foundation for tooth implants.
Invisalign – Teeth straightening with the help of transparent or 'invisible' braces
Total Mouth Rejuvenation – Restores the aesthetic appearance of the smile, as well as reconstructs the teeth and occlusion (bite) for functional and medical reasons.

Dr. Jeffrey Weller is experienced and has an artistic eye for creating a beautiful smile you will be proud of. At your private consultation appointment, Dr. Weller will create a personalized treatment plan for you.

"A big Thank You to the Weller Dental team! I have had numerous dental issues all my adult life, and several bad experiences with dentists. I was referred to Dr. Weller when my previous dentist passed away. It's always a stressful and shame inducing experience for me to open my mouth in a new dental office. For the past three years now, Dr. Weller and his staff have made me feel welcome, and most importantly: comfortable. They immediately went to work on a comprehensive treatment plan for me that addressed my oral health, as well as my cosmetic concerns. Dr. Weller is a skilled dentist, and gets the job done quickly, efficiently, and without any discomfort. Because I have full confidence in Dr. Weller, I just had him restore my smile with veneers and crowns. This takes a lot of skill and artistry. I can't believe what I see in the mirror now! Again, I can't thank Dr. Weller, and his entire staff enough for guiding me through this journey, and I recommend them to anyone in search of quality dental care."- R.F. / Google / Feb 19, 2022

Am I A Candidate?
Cosmetic treatments may help if you would like to improve or repair your smile. Cosmetic procedures may address issues such as discoloration of the teeth, damaged, crooked, or missing teeth, or a gummy smile. Generally, several cosmetic treatments can be done together to give you more dramatic results.
If needed, we can also provide bridges and crowns in your treatment plan to enhance your smile further. Before you consider cosmetic procedures, you need to be in good oral condition to prevent future issues such as ongoing decay, tooth sensitivity, or gum disease.
We thoroughly examine any issues that need to be addressed first, then create a cosmetic treatment plan to attain that gorgeous smile!
What Can I expect?
During your consultation with Dr. Weller, he checks the state of your gums and teeth to decide if your mouth is strong enough for cosmetic dentistry treatments. After this, he talks with you to create a personalized treatment plan that focuses on your smile goals.
After you develop a plan, Dr. Weller explains your next steps and schedules your treatments. Certain services, such as whitening, bonding, and contouring, can be completed in one or two appointments. Other treatments, such as veneers, restorations, or teeth straightening, will take a few visits.
What is My Follow Up?
During your cosmetic treatment procedures, Dr. Weller and the staff inform you and explain any follow-up instructions and suggestions. Careful protocols are provided during the duration of your treatments and after treatment has been completed.
An excellent at-home dental hygiene regimen with frequent flossing and brushing will help keep your teeth healthy and clean. We recommend regular check-up appointments at Weller Dental for cleanings and dental exams to help keep your teeth healthy and maintain the appearance of your new smile. Dr. Weller will discuss appointment frequency with you so you can get on a routine maintenance schedule.
Can I use My Insurance?
Total costs for cosmetic procedures will depend on what services you receive. Generally, not all cosmetic services are covered by dental insurance policies; however, some are covered, depending on the type of treatment.
We consult with your insurance provider to determine what procedures might be partially covered and the out-of-pocket expenses you will incur before you undergo any services.
In your initial consultation, we will explain the fees of your treatment plan in detail. One of our friendly team members can provide you with more information about payment options and possible financing.
