I don’t dare to tell people about how good Dr. Tavoian is because there might not be any appointments left for me.

Affordable Financing Is Available

Because cosmetic dentistry isn't considered medically necessary, dental insurance plans will not cover treatment. However, we will verify your coverage for any procedures that have both aesthetic and restorative applications before treatment begins. 

To help cover out-of-pocket costs and make cosmetic treatments more accessible, our Cedar City dental practice accepts CareCredit®. This allows patients to break the cost of their cosmetic treatment into flexible and affordable monthly payments. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

While we want every dental patient to achieve the beautiful smile they have always dreamed of, not everyone is initially a good candidate for cosmetic treatments. You may be eligible if you:

Are in good oral health. 

A healthy foundation is essential for cosmetic treatments. Patients must first be in good oral health and free of issues like gum disease and tooth decay before these types of dental procedures. Our Cedar City office offers general and restorative treatment options to help you qualify. 

Have cosmetic concerns.

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetics of your smile. If you suffer from issues that impact your oral health and function, general or restorative treatments may be recommended instead. However, some treatments, like dental crowns and dental implants, can improve the function and appearance of your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Options

Cosmetic dentistry can correct or conceal everything from minor aesthetic concerns to severe discoloration and uneven spacing. Additionally, Dr. Tavoian offers restorative procedures that can enhance the appearance of your smile by addressing missing or damaged teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Fabricated from highly aesthetic, medical-grade ceramic, porcelain veneers fit over the front of teeth to conceal chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration. These thin ceramic shells can offer dramatic transformations and create a straighter, whiter smile in as little as two office visits.

Dental Bonding

During a dental bonding treatment, Dr. Tavoian will apply composite resin to your teeth to enhance your smile in a single office appointment. While dental bonding is primarily a cosmetic treatment, it also has restorative benefits and can repair fractures or other damage. As a cosmetic procedure, bonding can conceal minor discoloration, as well as cracks, gaps, and chips.

Teeth Whitening

We use the advanced Opalescence® teeth whitening system to provide both in-office and at-home bleaching treatments. With Opalescence® Boost, you can achieve a brighter smile in a single office visit. For your convenience, we offer both custom and pre-made at-home bleaching trays. Ask about our Whitening for Life program to find out how you can receive a free take-home whitening kit every six months.

Smile Makeover

For patients who want to address multiple aesthetic issues at once, Dr. Tavoian can design a custom smile makeover treatment plan. By bundling a unique combination of procedures, we can ensure that all of your treatments complement each other for optimal results.

Fix Form and Function With Restorative Dentistry

In addition to cosmetic treatments, our Cedar City, UT, dentist offers a wide range of restorative procedures.

While cosmetic dentistry treatments enhance the look of your smile, restorative dental treatments are designed to enhance the function of your smile as well.

For example, if your smile is affected by missing teeth, Dr. Tavoian can place dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium posts that function just like artificial tooth roots and protect your jawbone from deteriorating after you lose a tooth. Dental implants are then restored with lifelike zirconia and IPS e.max® crownsbridges, or dentures.

We also offer full mouth reconstruction for patients who wish to correct multiple oral health concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Q. How much will my cosmetic dental treatments cost?

A. This depends on a variety of factors, such as the type of treatment and the level of care you need to achieve your cosmetic goals. For example, teeth whitening will not cost as much as porcelain veneers. And someone who needs one veneer will not pay as much as someone needing multiple veneers. Once your dentist crafts your custom treatment plan, we can provide an accurate quote so you can plan and budget. 

Q. Does cosmetic treatment hurt?

No. Some treatments involve no discomfort. However, if you have particularly sensitive teeth or need treatment like a dental crown, your dentist will numb the area before treatment begins. Our Cedar City dental practice also offers sedation options to keep you completely relaxed during your treatment. 

Q. Is cosmetic dentistry worth it?

A. Yes! A beautiful smile is just as important as a healthy smile. By undergoing these types of procedures, you can feel confident with the appearance of your teeth and gums, and that itself has enormous benefits. 

Q. Can I incorporate cosmetic treatments at the same time as restorative and general care?

A. This depends on your unique needs. In most cases, your dentist can create a custom smile makeover that combines different types of treatments. However, in some cases, restorative or general treatments must be completed first to ensure your smile is healthy enough for treatments like veneers or teeth whitening
