What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry, also known as aesthetic dentistry, refers to any procedure or treatment performed on the teeth to improve the appearance of the mouth. This includes simple fillings and crowns to more complex treatments like dental implants.

Cosmetic dentistry services can correct dental problems such as teeth discoloration, spaces between teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, missing teeth, misaligned teeth, and other minor dental issues.

There are many benefits to undergoing cosmetic treatments and procedures.

Our Cosmetic Services

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells made from porcelain or composite resin material covering the front surfaces of natural teeth. They correct minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, stains, gaps between teeth, uneven tooth size, and minor alignment issues.

  • Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are made of ceramic materials that closely resemble natural tooth enamel. They are durable and stain resistant, making them ideal for people who want to hide minor flaws such as chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. 
  • Composite Veneers: Composite veneers are less expensive than porcelain veneers because they’re made out of resin rather than ceramic. They’re also easier to apply, which makes them perfect for those who need just a few touch ups. 

Dental Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a process where tooth-colored material is placed on the tooth surface to enhance your smile. This cosmetic procedure often hides unsightly flaws caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma.

Tooth Whitening

During a professional teeth whitening procedure, our hygienist will clean your teeth thoroughly and apply a bleaching gel to the surface of your teeth. The gel will penetrate deep into your tooth structure where stains reside. Over time, the gel will gradually bleach out the stains, making your teeth appear brighter and whiter.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap placed over a tooth to restore its strength and improve its appearance. A crown can be used to treat:

  • Broken teeth or cracked teeth
  • Severely decayed tooth or worn down tooth
  • Tooth roots that are exposed because of decay or trauma
  • Missing teeth

Our dentists will discuss your options with you during your initial consultation. If necessary, we’ll take X-rays to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums. Based on these findings, we’ll recommend whether a crown is right for you.

Dental Implants

We offer dental implants to patients who suffer from missing teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or other issues. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. After healing, they fuse permanently with your jawbone, providing support for replacement teeth.

Before placing the dental implants, our oral surgeon will first perform a thorough examination of your mouth to determine if you’re a good candidate for implant placement. Next, we will clean your mouth by removing plaque and tartar buildup. Then, we will make an incision at the site of the implants and insert small titanium screws directly into the jaw bone. These screws serve as anchors for the dental crowns (the visible part of the implant). Finally, the crowns are attached to the screws using a connector called an abutment. 

To keep your dental implants healthy and strong, make sure to practice good oral hygiene like regular brushing and flossing of teeth.
