Anwsers to Questions

Is cosmetic dentistry the same as general dentistry?

Well, all dentists who focus on general dentistry often specialize in different procedures that enhance the overall health of your mouth and not for cosmetic purpose. On the other hand, all cosmetic dental procedures involve restoration activities that promise to work on your gum and teeth aesthetics.

Though these procedures also improve the health and function of your teeth, that’s not the primary reason they are performed. The top objective of any cosmetic dental treatment is to boost the look of your smile and functionality takes the second place. Therefore, if you are looking for a dentist in Bolton, it’s wise first to define the type of dental services you need and choose the right dentist.

What are the most common cosmetic dental procedures?

The recommended type of dental procedure for your case will depend on several factors. A cosmetic dentist will examine and assess the state of your teeth and gums and recommend the most suitable type of cosmetic dental procedure. Some of the most common procedures include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Colored filings
  • Shaping and recontouring

Remember, every cosmetic dental procedure has both benefits and downsides. Review each of the recommended procedures with your Bolton dentist before you settle for one.

Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?

Every patient’s needs and desires are different. However, most people are happy to know that a great smile may cost a fraction of the price they anticipate. In most cases, dentists offer several options at varying costs and also create a full treatment plan depending on your budget.

Does the patient’s dental insurance cover all cosmetic dental treatments?

Each year, many dental insurance plans offer benefits and the amount involved is enough to cover regular dental checkups. This is the reason you should be prepared to shoulder all extra dental expenses, and cosmetic dental services aren’t an exception. You can ask your dentist for help you so you can successfully push through with the reliable treatment plan.

What’s a smile makeover?

As the name suggests, a smile makeover is a complete reimaging of your smile. Note that a full mouth reconstruction focuses on rebuilding a smile destroyed by disease or damage, a smile makeover is more elective and is done specifically to improve one’s appearance. The dentist will thoroughly evaluate your current smile and advise you on the necessary changes you may want to make. Consider showing your dentist photos of your childhood smile or photos of celebrity smiles you admire.


Cosmetic dentistry is an effective way of enhancing your smile. Note that if you have an existing dental disease, the dentist will treat you first. This is because cosmetic dental procedures succeed when performed on clean, healthy gums.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
