Get the Answers to Your Questions
Let’s face it, not everyone is born with a naturally attractive smile. Besides genetics, poor oral hygiene habits, trauma, or other factors might make you feel insecure about your teeth. You do not need to hide behind your imperfections. Your dentist in Brampton can transform your teeth with cosmetic dentistry. We understand it is a big decision, and you have several questions about the process. We have the answers you need to feel confident in your choice.
What treatments are available?
Now, there are several procedures we can use to improve the color, size, shape, and proportion of your teeth. We perform an initial consultation to address your aesthetic concerns while discussing the results you want to achieve to determine which treatments best meet your needs. You may benefit from one or more services, such as:
- Teeth whitening
- Cosmetic bonding
- Dental implants
- Gum contouring
- Metal-free restoration
Can cosmetic dentistry improve my oral health?
Many people believe cosmetic treatments only offer aesthetic benefits. While this was true in the past, new innovations allow cosmetic and restorative services to overlap. As a result, certain elective procedures can also improve your oral health, like Invisalign. Correcting the alignment of your teeth not only gives you a beautiful smile but also decreases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease because oral hygiene is easier.
Can children get cosmetic dentistry?
Generally, cosmetic dentistry is thought to only be for adults; however, children can benefit from certain treatments as well, like direct bonding. Chipped or cracked teeth can be restored using a composite resin material that is safe for both children and adults. Metal-free restorations are also the ideal option for patients of all ages.
Does dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
It was unheard of for dental insurances to cover cosmetic dentistry in the past. While it is still rare, it occurs more often now. Your benefits will not pay for treatments that only offer elective benefits, like veneers, but it may a portion of the cost of procedures that can be used for restorative purposes, like tooth-colored fillings. If your cosmetic dentist in Brampton deems a cosmetic treatment necessary to protect or restore the health of a tooth, your insurance will pay for a portion of it depending on your specific policy.
We will help you maximize the value of your benefits to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We accept a variety of payment options to cover any remaining balance. Besides traditional methods of payment, we also accept third-party financing with CareCredit. We will help you find the solutions you need to keep your new smile affordable.

Invisalign® Clear Braces
Would you like to get a straighter smile without dealing with the cumbersome look and feel of having metal in your mouth? Recent dental advancements have allowed us to develop a customized orthodontic treatment, called Invisalign ®, that gently and strategically shifts your teeth into their ideal positions to fix misalignment, crowding, and minor bite problems. After an initial consultation with Dr. Joseph Salvaggio or Dr. Marc Al Khoury, you’ll be able to see how your smile will transform through a computerized model of your mouth altered to show your dental alignment after you complete each set of trays.
