Cosmetic dentistry is an interesting term that encompasses any type of dental treatment that improves the appearance of the smile.  This makes it a very broad category.  While many people envision porcelain veneers when they hear the words cosmetic dentistry, it actually can be something as minimal as replacing an old metal filling.

Cosmetic dentistry includes teeth whitening, which changes the color of the teeth by breaking down darkly pigmented molecules under the enamel’s surface.  We use professional, high-strength whitening products to give you a noticeable result as quickly as possible.  Teeth whitening can be an at-home process, or we can perform it for you in our office.

Porcelain veneers cover the visible surfaces of the teeth to change their appearance.  Veneers can alter the apparent size, shape, color and position (to a minor extent) of the teeth that they cover.  With porcelain veneers, we can perform a total smile makeover.

For some, the need for cosmetic dentistry goes beyond covering the teeth.  It may involve rebuilding or even replacing teeth.  In cases of severe break down, cosmetic dentistry might be an implant-supported prosthesis.

Regardless of your cosmetic dental concerns, we can improve them with cosmetic dentistry.  We love giving people smiles that make them want to show them proudly!
