Have you ever wondered how movie stars always seem to have perfect teeth? Most of them weren’t born that way; often, veneers are the reason for their red-carpet-ready smiles. These super-thin porcelain shells can be placed over the front-facing surfaces of the teeth, instantly masking multiple cosmetic flaws simultaneously. Whether your teeth are chipped, discolored, worn-down, gapped, or even slightly rotated or crooked, veneers can help you smile like your favorite celebrities!
Placing veneers requires that a thin slice of enamel be removed from the teeth they will cover. Otherwise, they would be too bulky, making it look and feel obvious that you’ve had dental work done. Enamel cannot grow back, so these teeth will always need to be covered with veneers or crowns moving forward. Lumineers are a thinner version of veneers that can be placed without altering your tooth structure. If you change your mind about them later, you won’t need to worry about getting another restoration to protect your teeth.
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
When you have a damaged or misshapen tooth in the front of your smile, the last thing you want is to draw attention to it with a dental crown made of instantly obvious metal. That’s why we offer metal-free zirconia crowns here at Nexus Dental of Lewisville. This material resembles tooth enamel so closely that once your crown is placed, even you will probably have difficulty differentiating it from your other teeth!
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Like veneers, cosmetic bonding can fix several aesthetic issues at the same time. Instead of porcelain coverings, though, bonding involves custom-shaded composite resin, which is sculpted over chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and misshapen teeth. While bonding isn’t quite as durable as veneers, this treatment can greatly improve your grin in one convenient appointment.
Over the years, it’s not uncommon for once-bright teeth to lose their luster, whether that’s from the natural process of aging, tobacco use, or a love of coffee. Rather than waste your time and money on store-bought products that barely work, why not choose professional-grade teeth whitening from Nexus Dental of Lewisville? With our ZOOM and Opalescence Boost teeth whitening systems, we can lighten your smile by up to eight shades. We also offer in-office and take-home solutions, allowing you to choose the option that best fits into your schedule.
Do you have a “gummy smile” that makes your teeth look too short? Dr. Jayswal can remedy this common problem with a soft tissue laser. She can use it to comfortably and quickly remove excess gum tissue to reveal formerly hidden enamel. Then, she can carefully reshape your gum line to create a symmetrical, gorgeous grin.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?
At Nexus Dental of Lewisville, we offer several cosmetic dental services. So, no matter what your dream smile looks like, it’s within arm’s reach! When you come in for your consultation, you’ll sit down with Dr. Jayswal to share what you’d like to change about your teeth and what you’d like the final results to look like. From there, she can help you determine the best way to proceed. For example, if you want to fix your “gummy” smile, your treatment plan may include a combination of gum recontouring and veneers. If you want to fix noticeable chips and gaps, then Lumineers and cosmetic dental bonding may be more ideal. Ultimately, it depends on important factors like the imperfections you’d like to address, your budget, and how quickly you’d like to see the results.
Why Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making
Some patients hesitate to sign on the dotted line because they think the benefits of a smile makeover stop at appearance. That’s not the case! Many cosmetic dental services also improve the health and function of your smile. Plus, several studies have shown that people with beautiful, healthy smiles have better success in their careers and love life. In short, cosmetic dentistry is absolutely an investment worth making, especially if you are currently struggling to smile confidently.
How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable
Typically, dental insurance providers don’t cover the cost of cosmetic dental treatments like teeth whitening and veneers. The good news is that there are other ways to make the price of your smile makeover more affordable! First, we offer special offers on many of our most sought-after services, like Invisalign.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?
Cosmetic dentistry is generally not covered by insurance since it's considered elective. However, there are exceptions if the treatment also addresses oral health issues.
For example, procedures like crowns or veneers might receive partial coverage if they protect a damaged tooth. Gum recontouring could be covered if it addresses a previous infection. Clear aligners like Invisalign may receive partial coverage under orthodontic benefits. Typically, coverage ranges from 50-80%, varying by the individual policy. Our team can help you understand your plan, file paperwork, and maximize benefits to make the most of your coverage.
How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
If your smile isn't making you 100% confident, cosmetic dentistry might be for you. Stained or discolored teeth that don’t react to over-the-counter whitening can be professionally treated. Cracked or chipped teeth may need protection to prevent bacterial exposure.
Cosmetic dentistry can also make you look younger by rejuvenating your smile. To be sure, consult Dr. Jayswall for personalized recommendations. She’ll guide you on the specific procedures that can transform your smile and address your concerns, bringing back your confidence and giving you a brighter, more youthful appearance.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
It depends on the specific treatments you choose. Quick fixes like teeth whitening and cosmetic dental bonding have shorter lifespans compared to more extensive procedures like veneers. Gum recontouring typically offers permanent results since gum tissue doesn't regenerate. Invisalign can last a lifetime with proper retainer use.
Overall, your commitment to oral health, including good hygiene, regular checkups, and protective measures, significantly influences the longevity of your results. Avoiding habits like using your teeth as tools and limiting stain-inducing foods and drinks further contributes to the lasting success of your cosmetic dental improvements.
Why Is Cosmetic Dentistry So Popular?
Cosmetic dentistry's popularity has surged due to several factors.
Traditionally, dentistry focused on preventing and treating issues. But recent decades brought modern techniques, improved technology, and widespread oral health knowledge, resulting in better overall dental health.
With healthier smiles, people now prioritize the appearance of their teeth. Once exclusive to the wealthy, cosmetic dentistry has become more affordable thanks to flexible financing options. In the age of smartphones and frequent photo-taking, the desire for a flawless smile has grown.
Additionally, a beautiful smile is linked to better career prospects because straight, white teeth convey trustworthiness, likability, and confidence, opening doors in professional life.
