Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
A beautiful smile can really make a difference in your daily life. By obtaining a smile you’re proud to show off, you can do wonders for your self-confidence, especially if you rely on your appearance for your profession. A brighter and whiter smile is often considered more attractive, so it’s a great way to stand out if you’re too embarrassed by your current appearance.
Additionally, some treatments can solve issues you wouldn’t normally expect to be fixable with cosmetic dentistry alone. Crooked teeth, for example, can be covered with porcelain veneers to make your smile appear straighter. If you have gapped teeth, they can cover these imperfections as well. If your tooth is chipped, a veneer or all-ceramic crown can prevent future damage as well. It’s the perfect way to give your smile additional protection and improve its appearance simultaneously. By taking the time to exhaust all of your options, you don’t have to settle on multiple treatments that may be unnecessary.
Specific Cosmetic Dental Treatments
To learn which treatment is best for your smile, you’ll want to schedule a consultation with Dr. Julovich. Until then, take a moment to learn about the treatments our practice offers!
We offer customized take-home whitening kits that create gorgeous changes for your look. Simply wear the oral trays and bleaching gel we provide you with together for a certain amount of time each day. This can be done on your own home and schedule for optimal convenience.
With porcelain veneers, we help your smile achieve beautiful results with just one treatment option. These customized, very thin sheaths of dental porcelain are designed to fit directly over natural teeth, hiding imperfections and damage under a brand-new, movie star appearance you’ll be proud to show.
Tooth-colored fillings offer many benefits over their traditional amalgam counterparts. By using composite resin material, Dr. Julovich can create a filling that blends in with your current tooth, preserve more of your healthy tooth structure, and help you avoid the sensitivity to temperature that metallic fillings cause.
While gold and silver dental restorations are effective in restoring function and health to damaged teeth, they’re incredibly noticeable. Thankfully, all-ceramic restorations are so lifelike, they even reflect light in the same way as natural enamel, while still being biocompatible and durable in the long-term.
Do you have a gummy smile? Dr. Julovich can remove excess tissue and contour your existing gum line with a crown lengthening procedure, making your smile more balanced and aesthetically pleasing.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
When it comes to understanding the process for various types of cosmetic dentistry in Zionsville, it’s important that Dr. Julovich and our team help you feel confident and comfortable in your decision. If you’re curious about possible insurance coverage, who can perform your procedures, or even how long you can expect your treatment to last, here are some cosmetic dentistry FAQs for you to review. Should you have any additional questions, we encourage you to call our office.
What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?
Depending on the method of treatment you choose, cosmetic dentistry can fix a wide array of smile imperfections. For example, porcelain veneers can fix:
- Gaps between teeth
- Minor misalignments
- Stains and discoloration
- Teeth that appear “short”
If you want a brighter, whiter smile, teeth whitening is the right solution for you. If decay has targeted one of your teeth and you want a non-metal restoration, tooth-colored fillings can give you a beautifully blended smile. If the gum tissue is in excess and causing you to have what appears to be short, “stubby” teeth, crown lengthening can contour your gum line and give you an aesthetically pleasing smile.
During a consultation with Dr. Julovich, you will not only discuss your goals and what you hope to achieve, but he will recommend the right treatment for you.
Can a General Dentist Do Cosmetic Dentistry?
Yes, a general dentist can perform cosmetic dentistry procedures. Both general and cosmetic dentists achieve much of the same education and initial training, making it possible to offer traditional dental services such as preventive care, dental crowns, and fillings; however, a cosmetic dentist is able to focus more on esthetics. It takes a skillful and artistic hand to place porcelain veneers or tooth-colored fillings.
You can rest assured that general and cosmetic dentists will work to keep your smile’s appearance in mind when restoring a tooth or hiding imperfections. It is our goal to give you a smile you can be proud to show off to not only your friends and family but also to the world.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
Again, this depends on the type of treatment you’re receiving. The averages for each of the following are:
- Porcelain Veneers: You can expect your veneers to last 5-15 years depending on how well you maintain your new smile.
- Tooth-Colored Fillings: Made of biocompatible composite resin, your restoration may last anywhere from 5-8 years.
- Crown Lengthening: It offers permanent results with no requirements for touch-ups!
- Teeth Whitening: The length of time your teeth stays whitened depends on how well you take care of them. If you drink a lot of dark-colored beverages, you can expect to see stains much sooner than you’d expect. If you take proper care of your teeth, you might see results that last a few years.
- All-Ceramic Restorations: Whether you’re receiving a dental crown, bridge, filling, or inlay or onlay, you can expect your restorations to last a decade or more with proper care.
Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
Dental insurance does not usually provide benefits for cosmetic treatment, but it depends on what the insurance company identifies as “cosmetic.” For instance, fixing a chip in a front tooth could be considered "cosmetic" and would be covered by dental insurance to a certain extent. However, procedures like teeth whitening are unlikely going to be covered.
Almost no procedure, with the exception of preventative care, is covered at 100% by dental insurance. To find out if any or all of your cosmetic treatment is covered, contact your insurance company. If you don’t want to mess with the hassle, feel free to ask one of our team members to contact your insurance provider on your behalf.
