Though the title “Cosmetic Dentist" is not applicable to any dentist, (there is no official certification for this area of treatment) West Kelowna Dentist Dr. Shauna Palmer has become quite experienced with treating patients who are in need of dental treatments that can enhance the appeal of their teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in colour, position, shape, size, alignment, and overall smile appearance.
Most cosmetic procedures are elective rather than essential. Treatment can also provide restorative benefits, such as bridging or implants. Insurance will usually pay for procedures that are medically necessary. Elective cases are usually not reimbursable. The most common procedures used in cosmetic dentistry are fairly simple. However, certain procedures require more complex and specialized care.
