Porcelain Veneers

Customized to fit over the front surface of a patient’s teeth, these thin, porcelain, shell coverings work like tiny masks to conceal smile imperfections. Capable of changing the size, shape, and color, they are semi-permanent, stain-resistant, durable, and can last a decade or longer with proper care and maintenance. Also, we can place veneers in just two appointments.

Lumineers compared with other dental restoration options

Similar to traditional veneers, Lumineers are thinner and do not require the removal of tooth enamel to be placed. They’re also not permanent, so you can reverse the process at any point. Lumineers can conceal an array of flaws, including stains, discoloration, chips, cracks, breaks, minor gaps, and misshapen teeth.


Metal-Free Dental Crowns

Our team understands dental work isn’t something that should always be noticeable, which is why we are pleased to offer metal-free dental crowns. Instead of using traditional amalgam and other materials, we can create a restoration that is free of any metals, so it blends in with existing, healthy teeth. Not only do they provide greater protection, but they remain discreet, so no one ever has to know.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic bonding can achieve many of the same results as veneers; however, it is less invasive because of its use of composite resin. Instead of removing enamel, we will apply the color-matched resin directly onto the tooth enamel and sculpt it in place. Using a curing light, the resin will harden and mask the imperfection. All of this is completed in one appointment, allowing patients to leave with a new and improved smile.

Teeth Whitening

When stains and discoloration leave a smile looking lackluster, in-office or at-home teeth whitening can be an ideal solution. Our team is pleased to use ZOOM! whitening products that are designed to eliminate stubborn intrinsic and extrinsic stains. With the in-office process taking only one hour for noticeable results, the at-home kits require two weeks of wear before desired results are achieved. In little time, a patient can embrace a brighter, whiter smile.

Gum Recontouring

Sometimes, teeth are not the problem. Instead, it is the gums. When minimal tooth structure is showing, it often means there is an overgrowth of soft oral tissues, which can cause a person to have a “gummy smile.” We can use gum recontouring to reshape the gum line and create a more balanced appearance while also lowering the risk of gum disease and recession.

Smile Makeovers

When too many flaws exist, it might seem as if there is no hope in achieving a youthful, beautiful appearance. However, this is simply not true. With a smile makeover, we can completely transform your aesthetics with a comprehensive treatment plan. Combining multiple cosmetic dental services, we can streamline the process and address each issue to help patients reach their smile goals.

With us, there is more than one way to bring your dream smile to life! At our conveniently located office, we offer teeth whitening, cosmetic dental bonding, veneers, Lumineers, and several other cosmetic dental services. The one that’s best for you (or the combination of treatments that are best for you) will depend entirely on your specific smile goals. For example, if you want to address a small chip, then cosmetic dental bonding may be all that’s needed, which is one of the most affordable treatments we offer. On the other hand, if you want to enhance the size, shape, and shade of all of the teeth that show when you smile, then veneers or Lumineers may be ideal.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

If you’re hesitant to sign on the dotted line, it can be helpful to get a refresher on all of the reasons it’s worth investing in cosmetic dentistry. To start, improving your smile can improve your personal and professional life! After all, your smile is one of the first features people notice, and researchers found that job applicants who underwent teeth whitening before their interview were more likely to receive an offer.

It's also important that we touch on the benefits to your oral health. Improving the alignment and shape of your teeth can prevent premature wear, tooth decay, and even TMJ dysfunction. Plus, patients often find a renewed commitment to their oral hygiene regimen when they love their smile!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

While many people may assume that cosmetic dentistry is expensive, this is not always the case. Your dentist will carefully consider your budget when recommending treatments. However, dental insurance rarely covers cosmetic dental procedures, meaning that you’ll probably have to pay out of pocket. We do offer third-party financing and an in-house membership to help patients manage costs.

While it might seem costly to improve your smile, it’s also important to remember that it is an investment in your confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life. In many cases, cosmetic dentistry can pay for itself by opening new ways forward in the business world and the social scene!

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

While many people might be hesitant about undergoing any sort of dental procedure, cosmetic treatments are perfectly safe for most patients as long as they are performed by a trained professional. Our dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth to make sure you’re a fitting candidate for a procedure. Certain procedures can pose a risk if some underlying dental health issues are not treated beforehand, so we will have to address these problems before you can receive cosmetic treatments.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

While some cosmetic dental treatments are non-invasive and painless by nature, treatments like veneers will require local anesthetics. While you may experience some lingering soreness after a cosmetic procedure, it should be mild and quickly fade over the coming days.

Even if you’re completely determined to enhance your smile, you may still have some anxiety about whether cosmetic dental treatments hurt. Thankfully, your dentist will do everything in their power to keep you as comfortable as possible during any procedure. However, a patient may just have dental anxiety that makes it difficult to sit in the dentist’s chair in the first place, and dental sedation may be an excellent option in these cases.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Change Your Life?

While addressing the flaws in your teeth might seem silly and vain at first, it can provide significant benefits for your quality of life, especially by encouraging good habits and discouraging bad ones. If you’re proud of your smile, you’re more likely to take excellent care of it at home so you can show it off generously. This can also make some patients more willing to quit bad habits like smoking or excessive soda or coffee consumption to help preserve their results.

Cosmetic dental procedures can also have real health benefits for patients. Crooked teeth can create bite issues that lead to discomfort in the jaw, and correcting them with porcelain veneers can save someone a lot of pain. Frequently smiling can also impart mental health benefits by lowering stress and triggering the release of feel-good chemicals like endorphins.
