Dental veneers are thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made for each patient. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth and have the ability to completely change your smile. Transforming your teeth can not only have a huge impact on the way you look but can also impact how you feel about yourself. The mouth makes up approximately 1/3 of a person’s face. Veneers can do much more than just enhance your smile.

Before treatment begins, each patient can see a mock-up of before and after images of their smile and even take a “test drive”. This ensures that their desired smile is attainable before their teeth are touched.

Because veneers are made of the most bio-compatible material available, they can be used next to the gum line (gingiva). They are stain resistant and can last many years. Many people chose veneers over other cosmetic dentistry alternatives because of the conservative treatment process. Generally, veneers require little to no prep, which means that only a small amount of the tooth itself needs to be removed in order to fit the veneer.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic system designed to improve mild to moderate teeth misalignment utilizing a series of removable aligners. When worn as directed, the clear Invisalign trays should gradually move the teeth into a straighter, better-aligned position. The treatment can also help patients affected by common bite irregularities. Made of clear plastic material, Invisalign removable aligners have helped patients all over the world successfully straighten their teeth without others even noticing they are undergoing treatment. This advanced procedure is one of the many ways our Lutz cosmetic dentist and team at Allure Dental Boutique can give you a more beautiful, healthier-looking smile!

Professional Teeth Whitening

Having a bright white smile is an easy way to make a great first impression, and it will make you appear younger and happier. Professional teeth whitening aside, increasing your home care, and maintaining a healthy mouth will help prevent cavities and gum disease, sprucing up your fresh breath!

Professional teeth whitening should be completed before major restorative dentistry procedures like crowns, bridges, veneers, or dental implants, because the porcelain material in these restorations cannot be whitened once it is cemented in your mouth. Therefore, whiten your teeth first. After you are satisfied with your whitening, and your desired shade is reached, we can move forward with creating restorations for you that match your other pearly white teeth.

We offer a teeth whitening solution for everyone.


The development of wrinkles on our face is due to many factors. Too much sun, muscle movements and normal aging all play a part in the development of wrinkles. Many of the most common areas of wrinkles like the furrow between your eyebrows and your crow’s feet can be easily smoothed and relaxed with a simple injection.

Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is useful to enhance your appearance and as a treatment option in many medical conditions.

Botox Cosmetic can be very effective in smoothing out frown lines, crow’s feet, and other unwanted wrinkles, such as lip lines and nose and eyebrow furrows. These lines may make you look worried or angry and give you an older appearance.

As the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States, Botox has been used by millions of people to improve their appearance in a way that is noticeable, yet subtle. Although the effect is temporary, lasting anywhere from three to six months, when used consistently it has the added benefit of reducing the development of future wrinkles by not allowing the repeating muscle movements that contribute to wrinkles over time.

Gum Recontouring

If you feel that your teeth are too short, your smile is too “gummy” or that your gum line is uneven, gum contouring, a simple cosmetic treatment might be just right for you.

Your teeth probably are not “too short” at all. In fact, they may be just the right length. You simply may have too much gum tissue covering your teeth and hiding your smile. A gingivectomy or “gum contouring” procedures sculpt the gum and/or bone, revealing the “crown” of the tooth to give your new smile just the right look. If restorations are necessary, this procedure sets the stage allowing your new veneers or crowns to have the correct length and shape, giving you a beautiful new smile.

There are several possible causes for a gummy smile. In some cases, teeth may seem too small because they did not erupt properly during a person’s youth. Other patients may simply have a high lip line or a very small upper lip that fails to properly cover the gums when smiling. In some cases, a gummy smile is the result of your genetic background. Even if both of your parents had well-proportioned smiles, differences in the size and positioning of the parents’ teeth and gums can result in a hereditary mismatch of features. There is a wide range for what is considered attractive in this world, but what matters the most is how you see yourself. If you are not happy with your smile, gum contouring gives you a safe way to alter the appearance of your teeth and gums so you can smile with confidence.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry typically isn’t covered by dental insurance, which means that people often worry about whether they can make these treatments fit into their budget.

Thankfully, we provide a variety of different cosmetic procedures and plenty of financial options to our patients, meaning that you have good odds of finding a treatment plan that makes sense for you. If you want to know more, here’s some information that could help you budget for upcoming cosmetic treatment.

What Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

The first thing you need to know is that there are plenty of aesthetic treatments available to you at a variety of different price points.

Direct bonding, for example, is an inexpensive way to repair chips and cracks in your smile. Teeth whitening is also on the more affordable side, allowing you brighten your smile on a relatively thin budget. If you’ve ever wondered if your smile is a bit too “gummy,” gum recontouring is another lower-cost treatment than can help you to address this issue.

Then there are pricier treatments, like Invisalign or veneers. They’re capable of making more substantial changes to the appearance and function of your teeth, and accordingly incur a bit of a higher cost.

Then there are smile makeovers, which are typically a combination of several different cosmetic treatments. This option is often, though not always, the most expensive one; however, it’s hard to argue with the results that smile makeovers can produce.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be An Investment Worth Making   

Cosmetic dentistry is different than a lot of the other kinds of care that you’ll receive at the dentist’s office. The benefits of veneers or braces are a lot more abstract than that of a root canal or filling, but they’re just as real.

Having a smile you’re proud to show others will put you at ease in all kinds of situations. Cosmetic dentistry can improve your standing at work and your confidence your personal life, making it an investment well worth making.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

In the vast majority of cases, cosmetic dental procedures are not covered by dental insurance. This is because they are considered to be “elective.” That being said, there are sometimes exceptions for treatments that also provide oral health benefits. For instance, getting a crown or veneer may receive partial coverage if it is building up or protecting a damaged tooth. Gum recontouring may qualify for coverage if infection was previously present in the gums. Invisalign might be covered to some extent if you have orthodontic coverage. Our team is happy to help you understand your specific plan, file your paperwork, and maximize your benefits.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

The lifespan of your enhanced smile will depend on which treatments you opt for. Some last longer than others. For example, quick treatments, like teeth whitening and dental bonding, tend not to last as long as more extensive ones, like veneers. Gum recontouring almost always produces permanent results. Teeth straightened by Invisalign can last a lifetime if you continue to wear your retainer as directed. Generally, the better you care for your smile, the longer you can expect your results to last.

Why Is Cosmetic Dentistry So Popular?

When you look at the history of dentistry, the focus is on preventing and treating dental issues. However, in the past few decades, modern techniques and technology, as well as increased knowledge of good oral health practices have led to the average person having better dental health. This means that more people are able to focus on the appearance of their smile as opposed to just repairing damage. Cosmetic dentistry treatments have also become more affordable, so they aren’t only accessible to wealthy people anymore. Ultimately, these things are causing more people to invest in the appearance of their smiles so they can reap the benefits.

What Can I Do About My Gummy Smile?

If you feel that your smile is too “gummy,” there are several treatments available so you can enjoy newfound confidence. The first step is to have a consultation with your dentist to discuss your options. Dental crowns and veneers are popular because they can make the teeth appear longer, allowing for a more proportionate smile. Gum recontouring is also an option. This procedure involves removing excess gum tissue around your teeth to expose more of the enamel. In other cases, Invisalign can help to correct jaw and bite problems that contribute to a gummy smile.
