Frequently Asked Questions

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry services aim to make adjustments to your smile’s appearance so it’s more aesthetically attractive. In many cases, these services also improve the functionality of your mouth and make it easier to keep your teeth clean.  

Whether your smile has imperfections because of an injury, it’s natural positioning, or wear-and-tear that comes with age, our team at Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can make the necessary adjustments to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. 

Once your cosmetic dental work is complete, you’ll have a confident smile that you can proudly enjoy for years to come. 

How can cosmetic dentistry improve my smile?

Even minor imperfections in your smile can distract you from appreciating your beauty. When you fix these imperfections, you and those around you will notice a big difference that speaks for itself.  

At Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we’re happy to correct these dental flaws: 

  • Stains and discoloration
  • Crooked teeth
  • Unattractive gum lines
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Short or long teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Large gaps

One of our dentists can identify the treatments that will provide you with the most benefits and meet your smile goals. If you want to make multiple improvements, we’ll create a customized treatment plan to meet each of your goals. 

What cosmetic dentistry services do you offer?

Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers a comprehensive list of cosmetic treatments in a comfortable, home-like setting. Your cosmetic treatment plan might include: 


If you’re missing one or more teeth, the most natural-looking and permanent solution is to get dental implants. Dental implants are surgically fixed into your jawbone to ensure longevity. 


Veneers are thin ceramic facings that cover the front of your teeth. They can make improvements to shape, length, color, and contour with minimal reduction of your natural teeth.  

CEREC One-day Crowns

With CEREC® crowns, you can enjoy stronger, better-looking teeth with just one appointment instead of waiting weeks or months. The ceramic crowns are created using 3D images of your tooth to make a natural-looking cap.  

In more complex cases, treatment may take more than one visit so Dr. Ruehle can have the time needed to design, mill, and finish your teeth, before delivery. Even in those cases, you will be finished in a few days rather than weeks or months with traditional treatment options.  


Waterlase® laser dentistry uses water, air, and lasers to improve the appearance of your gums. While the device can assist in many dental procedures, it can also recontour your gum line with safety and precision to achieve a beautiful, confident smile. 

Whether you need a full mouth reconstruction or a simple touch-up, you can achieve a pristine smile with cosmetic dentistry services at Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. To consult Dr. Ruehle, call the office today. 

Are dental implants better than porcelain veneers?

While both procedures aim to improve the beauty of your smile, they satisfy different needs. Veneers are painless and the treatment can be completed within a few visits. They’re attached to the front of your teeth and can last 20 years with proper oral care and biannual checkups. 

If you’re missing teeth or want to replace damaged teeth, dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option. They look and feel like your natural teeth. Best of all, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants require surgery to fix a post into your jawbone that will hold an abutment and a porcelain crown. There is a recovery period following the procedure, but the results are stunning. 

Does insurance cover cosmetic treatments?

If the purpose of the treatment is to improve the appearance of your smile, insurance usually doesn’t cover these types of services. For more information, we recommend contacting your provider prior to your appointment to get a better understanding of your coverage.
