What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental services that improve the appearance of the teeth, gums, and overall smile. While appearance is the focus, many of these treatments also have benefits beyond aesthetics. Our practice offers cosmetic dental care that can boost the appeal of your smile as well as help improve your confidence and overall quality of life.

What Can Aesthetic Dental Treatments Fix?

The goal of cosmetic dental treatments is to create a smile you love. Our cosmetic dental treatments can address a variety of issues. Aesthetic dentistry can change the appearance of the shape, size, and color of your teeth. It addresses missing teeth as well as how much of your teeth are visible.

  • Cosmetic Teeth Whitening: A bright smile communicates good oral health and personal care. However, many of our favorite foods and beverages are highly pigmented and can create layers of surface stains on the enamel that regular brushing and flossing can't remove. Our cosmetic teeth whitening treatments can lift years of surface stains left behind by tomato sauce, red wine, coffee, and tea. Using professional strength whitening gel, these treatments reveal your natural enamel color underneath, producing a noticeably whiter smile quickly and conveniently.
  • Veneers: If you have chipped, misshapen, worn, or deeply discolored teeth, our veneers may be the solution you're looking for. Veneers consist of thin shells that fit snugly over teeth to fix a variety of aesthetic issues. They typically cover the most visible teeth in your smile, transforming its appearance without significantly changing or reshaping the tooth. We can place one or multiple veneers to create the even, beautiful smile you want.
  • Tooth-Colored Crowns and Fillings: If you need a filling or a dental crown to protect a tooth, you don't need to sacrifice your smile's aesthetics. Our team artfully matches your custom dental crown to the color of your natural teeth to create a healthy, seamless appearance. If you need a filling, we use tooth-colored composite materials that blend in with the surrounding enamel, which means most people won't know you have a filling at all.

Our Cosmetic Dentist's Process

Our cosmetic dentistry begins with a gentle and thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums. We discuss the findings of this exam with you and actively listen to your smile goals. Once we fully understand your needs and concerns, we craft a customized treatment plan that fits your specific goals and lifestyle.

If there are any underlying issues that require pretreatments, we will walk you through what those services entail, why they are necessary, and how they will benefit your oral health. Throughout your personalized treatment plan, our knowledgeable cosmetic dentist strives to maximize your comfort and create a positive experience every time you visit us.

Here are some of the most common questions we receive about cosmetic dental treatments.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers are surprisingly durable and can last 10-15 years when properly cared for. Our dentist will provide tips and instructions to keep your veneers in great shape and improve their longevity.

No. We care about your comfort and peace of mind, which is why we offer local anesthetics and a relaxing approach to alleviate anxiety and help you enjoy a relaxing visit.
