Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of your smile. Unlike other types of dentistry, it’s not intended to treat oral health issues, but to correct things like tooth stains, gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth, and other things that may make you feel self-conscious about your teeth. If you’re looking to enhance your smile in Phoenix, Dental Home Family Dentistry is here to help. Contact us now to schedule a cosmetic consultation, and take the first steps toward the smile you’ve always wanted.

Teeth whitening is a fast, cost-effective, and simple way to improve your smile. We offer both take-home and in-office teeth whitening. Take-home whitening lets you treat yourself on your own schedule, while in-office whitening provides faster results. Whichever you choose, you can brighten your smile by 5-10 shades, and eliminate the stains that are discoloring your teeth.
Dental bonding is another great option for cosmetic dentistry if you’re on a budget. In this procedure, your dentist in Phoenix will apply a tooth-colored composite material directly to your tooth, reshaping it and improving its appearance. This material is similar to what’s used for tooth-colored fillings. Bonding is affordable, provides fast results, and requires no removal of any natural enamel, unlike veneers.
Enameloplasty, also sometimes called “shaping and contouring” is often used alongside dental bonding. In this procedure, your cosmetic dentist will gently remove a thin layer of enamel from one or more of your teeth to improve their appearance. This is often done to reshape pointed teeth, remove very small chips, and treat other minor imperfections. Alongside dental bonding, enameloplasty is a great way to completely reshape your smile and enhance your appearance.
Veneers are the most durable, long-lasting, and versatile type of cosmetic dentistry treatment. They are very thin, tooth-shaped “shells” that are made of porcelain ceramic materials. Veneers are meant to cover up the front chewing surfaces of your teeth. This allows them to treat a wide variety of issues including gaps in your smile, crooked teeth, misshapen/small teeth, and much more. With a set of veneers, you can completely transform your teeth.
Veneers also have a very long lifespan of up to 20 years, are completely stain-resistant, and require minimal special care beyond brushing and flossing. However, they do require the permanent removal of some of your enamel, and this process is not reversible.

No. Dental insurance typically covers only “medically necessary” procedures. By definition, cosmetic dentistry is not medically necessary. This means that, in almost all cases, you will pay for cosmetic dentistry out of pocket.
However, at Dental Home Family Dentistry, we offer a dental membership plan with exclusive discounts, as well as flexible financing that allows you to split your treatment into low monthly payments. Even if you’re on a budget, you can get the treatment you need for a beautiful smile in Phoenix!
Cosmetic dentistry offers a wide range of options that can treat nearly any aesthetic dental issue. Yellow or stained teeth can be fixed with teeth whitening; minor cracks, chips, or evening out your smile can be solved with dental bonding; Veneers or Lumineers can completely refurbish any aesthetic concerns, and dental crowns are used on teeth that have severe damage or decay. Cosmetic dentistry is a worthwhile option if you are aesthetically unsatisfied with your smile in any way.
Having good oral and overall health is the main requirement for cosmetic treatments. You are a good candidate if you meet those and are looking to improve the look of your smile.
Oral health issues like gum disease, cavities, or occlusal (bite) issues usually require restorative or orthodontic treatments before cosmetic treatment. It’s important to get an initial oral health exam before proceeding with any procedures.
Yes you can! In fact, it’s a common practice. Receiving multiple cosmetic treatments in one appointment makes it way more efficient to get the results you want. Some procedures, such as dental bonding and enameloplasty, go hand-in-hand. Our practice prioritizes keeping procedures as straightforward and effective as possible.
