Cosmetic Dentistry Indianapolis - Indianapolis Cosmetic Dentist - Kelli Hinds, DDS

Designed to enhance the overall appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide assortment of dental treatments and procedures, each of which enhances the form of your smile in a unique way. Typically, these procedures restore your smile’s appearance, making it look as natural as possible. In some cases, cosmetic dentistry even enhances the functionality of your bite.

Options for Cosmetic Enhancement

Cosmetic dentistry requests have become so popular that more and more procedures are available, giving patients a greater number of options, as well as access to more affordable procedures. Popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include whitening of the teeth, straightening of the teeth, and restoring the natural appearance of damaged teeth.

Currently practicing in Indianapolis, our cosmetic dentist, Kelli Hinds, DDS, is an Invisalign® certified provider, bringing patients an opportunity to achieve more properly aligned smiles. This certification involves additional clinical and operational training in Invisalign® technology, software, procedures, and the best way to identify the ideal candidate. The Invisalign® process involves the straightening of teeth using a system of invisible trays that have been customized to your teeth.

The cost of Invisalign® varies, depending on several factors, not the least of which is whether or not you are obtaining sets for both upper and lower trays. While low estimates begin at $3,500, higher estimates reach as much as $8,000. The cost is partly due to the number of trays, which commonly ranges between 18 and 30 trays. Minor teeth straightening through Invisalign® involves fewer trays and the cost might be as low as $2,000. According to the makers of Invisalign®, the national average for this treatment is about $5,000.

Teeth Whitening

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening. How do you decide which of the whitening strips, toothpastes, trays, and kits are best for you? The easiest way to select a teeth whitening treatment that offers you success is to discuss it with your Indianapolis cosmetic dentist. Our family and cosmetic dentistry practice in Indianapolis offers several options for whitening your teeth, including in-office and at-home kits.
