Your Guide To Cosmetic Dentistry

When meeting someone new, what is one of the first things you notice? For many people, it’s the person’s smile. A beautiful row of teeth can make a great first impression. If you have teeth that have become discolored, misshapen, or are suffering another esthetic concern, then talk to our team. We can guide you to procedures that best improve smiles with our approach to cosmetic dentistry.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

With cosmetic dentistry, we employ procedures designed solely to improve the appearance of the teeth and gums. However, in some cases addressing cosmetic issues, such as misalignment or damaged teeth, can also have restorative benefits as well.

Our Cosmetic Procedures

We offer a number of different cosmetic treatments, including:

  • Teeth Whitening: We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening to remove discoloration from the teeth. The option we recommend will depend on the cause and severity of your teeth stains.
  • Porcelain Veneers: These are thin shells of porcelain placed onto the front of the teeth. The veneers completely change the appearance of a tooth, masking discoloration, the appearance of minor misalignment, and issues with the shape of a tooth.
  • Bonding: Using a composite resin, the doctor can repair a chipped tooth in a single visit.
  • Gum Lifts: If you have a “gummy smile” (displaying excessive gingival tissue) we can reshape the gums and remove excessive tissue using advanced dental lasers.
  • Complete Smile Makeover: Using a combination of cosmetic treatments, we can completely change your smile, improving a variety of esthetic issues related to the shape, alignment, and shade of your teeth.
