For many patients, having an attractive smile is the main motivation for visiting a dentist. Sometimes, achieving that goal entails cosmetic dental treatments to address problems that detract from the smile’s appearance. Our dentists are trained in a number of cosmetic procedures and treatments that can give you the movie star-quality smile of your dreams.
Our patients may benefit from a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry interventions, which may range from a simple tooth whitening treatment to a complex smile makeover involving veneers, dental implants and even orthodontic treatment.
Some of the cosmetic treatments offered at our office include:
- Teeth whitening – Sometimes a simple enhancement of the shade of your teeth can give your smile a dramatic boost. A bleaching gel containing a peroxide can penetrate the surface of your teeth, eliminating sources of discoloration within. Teeth whitening can leave your teeth several shades whiter.
- Veneers – These handy tooth-shaped shells, which may be made of porcelain or composite materials, can conceal a number of imperfections in the teeth, including chips, cracks and deep stains.
- Restorations – In the case of tooth decay, restorations such as inlays, onlays or crowns can help to make a damaged tooth whole again.
- Dental implants – These titanium posts act as artificial tooth roots, securing a prosthetic crown made of lifelike materials that mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. They offer the most structurally complete device for filling in an empty space in the smile.

Depending on the patient’s specific concern, any of these cosmetic dentistry treatments can be offered individually. They may also be combined to address multiple issues with the smile’s aesthetics.
With all of these interventions available, there’s no need for any patient to feel self-conscious about his or her smile. Discuss any of your aesthetic concerns with your dentist to see if cosmetic dentistry might be recommended for you.
