By: Dr. Carolyn B. Walker


A dull or crooked smile can wreak havoc on your self-confidence and even discourage you from talking, smiling, or having your picture taken. At Pipe Creek Dental Center, Dr. Carolyn B. Walker and our caring team of dental experts believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they love. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the wide range of cosmetic dental treatments and procedures we offer to help patients in Pipe Creek, TX look and feel better than ever.

I hate my smile

If you are self-conscious about your teeth, you’re far from alone. Virtually everyone has at least a few things they wish they could change about their smiles, and some people desire a new smile altogether. With the exciting advancements in modern cosmetic dentistry and technology, getting a beautiful smile is easier and more convenient. Some of the most common concerns that lead patients to consider cosmetic dental treatments include:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Small teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gummy smile
  • Dull teeth
  • Yellow teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Tooth discoloration

What dental treatments are considered cosmetic?

Whether you are unhappy with the size, shape, color, or alignment of your smile, cosmetic dentistry offers treatments that can help. At Pipe Creek Dental Center, some of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments are:

  • Teeth whitening: Choose from in-office or at-home teeth whitening kits to brighten your smile by up to eight shades or more.
  • Porcelain veneers: Durable, natural-looking porcelain veneers can conceal almost any dental concern, from chipped teeth to tooth discoloration and beyond.
  • ClearCorrect aligners: With barely-there ClearCorrect teeth aligners, patients can get straighter smiles more discreetly than ever.
  • Smile makeover: Patients with a variety of concerns may qualify for a customized smile makeover to target their unique issues and transform their smiles from top to bottom.

How long does a smile makeover take?

Because a smile makeover is completely customized to help meet the needs and goals of each patient as an individual, the length of a smile makeover can vary from person to person. For patients with minor cosmetic concerns, a smile makeover may be able to be completed in a single visit, while patients with a more complex case may require several appointments over the course of many months.

Are cosmetic dental treatments covered by insurance?

Generally speaking, dental treatments and procedures that are considered solely cosmetic are not covered by dental insurance. In some cases, however, treatments may provide both cosmetic and medical benefits, making them potentially eligible to be at least partially covered by insurance.

During your initial consultation for cosmetic dentistry in Pipe Creek, TX, our knowledgeable billing team will help you understand which services may be covered by insurance and will work with you on the process of submitting for benefits if necessary. We also proudly offer multiple financing options to help make cosmetic dentistry accessible to virtually anyone.
