Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry includes various procedures specifically designed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your teeth. That can include everything from restoring and replacing teeth, reversing tooth discoloration, straightening your teeth, hiding faults in your teeth, and more. Dr. Mandi and Dr. Marc offer several of these procedures at Pinole Family Dentistry.

What are some common cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile in several ways. A few standard procedures include veneers, dental implants, and Invisalign®.


Veneers are thin porcelain shells that Dr. Mandi and Dr. Marc customize to fit over your chipped, stained or misaligned teeth. Not only do these dental shells improve the look of your smile, but they mimic the strength and resilience of natural tooth enamel.

Dental implants

Dental implants replace lost teeth. The implant provides a strong foundation for Dr. Mandi or Dr. Marc to insert a crown atop the titanium screw, allowing the dental implant to look and function like your natural teeth.


Invisalign braces are clear, removable aligner trays, specially customized to realign your crooked teeth. This innovative technology is clinically proven to be effective in a broad range of cases, and it’s a popular cosmetic option due to its transparency. We will be happy to refer you to an orthodontist if you will benefit from Invisalign and/or other orthodontic treatment.

Other cosmetic procedures that Dr. Marc and Dr. Mandi offer include:

  • Inlays and onlays: rest on top of your teeth’s surface thanks to a special adhesive
  • Composite bonding: hides tooth damage and restores your tooth’s healthy appearance
  • Dental makeovers: radically enhance your smile with various cosmetic procedures

Will my insurance cover cosmetic procedures?

Most dental insurance pays for essential services and therefore doesn't typically cover cosmetic procedures. As such, you should check with your dental insurance provider concerning covered costs before opting for a dental procedure.

If you’re considering a cosmetic dental procedure, Dr. Mandi and Dr. Marc recommend obtaining a complete estimate that includes all the dental costs for the procedure you want to receive.

Cosmetic procedures vary widely in cost, but Dr. Mandi and Dr. Marc will work with you to maximize your return on investment. As such, they avoid offering bargain deals that will deprive you of quality results and provide all the information you need to make a wise decision.
