What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is general dentistry with an added element.
Besides restoring the function of the teeth, cosmetic dentistry includes an emphasis on esthetics and smile design.
It goes beyond restoring teeth to actually transforming a dark, crooked, or worn-out smile into one that is natural, youthful, beautiful, or vigorous.

Whitening is one of the simplest and least expensive cosmetic techniques. It can give you a brilliant smile you’ll be proud of. Our custom-made whitening kits are comfortable, easy to use, and deliver a great result.
If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth. Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems. Veneers create a beautiful smile in a short amount of time. The results are simply gorgeous!
Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. This approach has become very popular because silver fillings are less attractive.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth. Invisalign uses a series of clear removable Aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. It has been proven effective in clinical research and in practices nationwide.
A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. Dr. Roulston will mount replacement teeth onto the post. An implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be
anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
Dental dentures are a great way to replace missing teeth. They can restore your ability to chew and speak properly, and give you the confidence to smile again. Whether you need just a few teeth replaced or a full set, dentures can restore what you’ve lost and improve your overall look.
Frequently Asked Cosmetic Dentistry Questions
What is the best way to get my teeth whitened?
This is a question that we hear quite frequently at Tulsa Dental Center. There’s not a universal answer that applies to everyone though.
The fastest and most reliable whitening process is typically an in-office professional situation. That’s why our team is experienced in teeth whitening services for every tooth and age of patient. The best teeth whitening results are always going to be a professional treatment type option, but if you have questions about any other teeth whitening methods you are considering, then please contact us.
Are there health benefits with cosmetic dentistry?
Absolutely. There are in fact many health benefits that accompany cosmetic dentistry treatments.
One of the most common benefits is a decrease in the risk of infection within your mouth.
When our team at Tulsa Dental Center removes empty spaces in the mouth by way of dental implants, crowns or bridges, we reduce the amount of space that harmful bacteria has to grow in.
In addition, removing unhealthy teeth from the mouth can help your other teeth remain healthy and help create a beautiful smile.
Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
There are several cases in which your insurance may cover cosmetic dentistry.
Often we see many people who are unaware that their insurance is able to provide financial assistance for cosmetic procedures.
However, since many cosmetic dentistry procedures have multiple added health benefits, some dental insurance companies find this as grounds for coverage.
Who is eligible for cosmetic dentistry procedures?
Many people who aren’t satisfied with their smile are eligible for cosmetic procedures.
However, if there is an infection in the mouth, said infection would need to be cleared before any other procedures are able to begin.
If you are frustrated or suffer from missing, cracked or unhealthy teeth may wish to rejuvenate their smile with cosmetic dentistry.
