Cosmetic dentistry services extend beyond general dentistry and offer options for patients who are concerned with the appearance of their teeth. Depending upon the procedure performed, cosmetic dentistry provides benefits such as improving the function and feel of the teeth and mouth, making it easier to care for the teeth and gums, and of course, boosting self-confidence.

Whitening treatments are the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure performed. There are several types of whitening procedures, which vary by price and duration of results. A consultation with one of our dentists will make you aware of the options and determine which whitening system is best for you.
Dental veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the fronts of the teeth to improve the overall appearance, shape, color, size, and straightness of the teeth. This treatment require shaving a thin layer of the natural tooth then bonding the custom-made veneer onto the tooth. Veneers are made of porcelain or composite resin and are crafted to look perfectly natural, blending seamlessly with your smile. Veneers do require replacing after some time. How long veneers last depends on how well a patient takes care of them.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Regardless of the reason for a missing tooth – from severe decay to injury – implants provide a highly functional and realistic option. Dental implants consist of a post that is surgically positioned into the jaw bone and a customized crown attached to the post. Shape, size, and tooth color are matched to the patient’s natural teeth for a beautifully natural appearance and optimal function. Dental implants are cared for just like your natural teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry includes modern options for straightening crooked teeth such as Invisalign®, the clear, removable alternative to metal braces. Invisalign is especially popular with adults who want to straighten their teeth while enjoying the freedom that removable aligners provide for eating, brushing, and flossing. Customized aligners are changed approximately every two weeks for gradual progress and none of the hassle of the brackets and wires that accompany traditional braces.
