The fact is, people pay attention our smiles. In order to help our patients achieve more esthetically pleasing smiles, we provide cosmetic dentistry. What is cosmetic dentistry? Who makes a good candidate for esthetic smile improvement?

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry consists of treatments designed specifically to improve a smile’s appearance. While there can be bonus restorative benefits, the goal is purely to help you obtain a more attractive smile. Common issues people turn to esthetic treatment for include discoloration, misshapen or damaged teeth, and misalignment.

Am I Candidate for Esthetic Improvement?

If you have issues with the appearance of your smile, then you are a candidate for cosmetic treatment. If you’re a new patient, you can receive a free cosmetic consultation. The doctor will discuss your smile goals and then using advanced technology, including digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, the doctor will assess the cause and severity of your esthetic complaints. From there, we can recommend one or possibly more procedures to improve your smile’s beauty. However, if we find evidence of problems that concern your oral health (tooth decay, infection, or possibly gingivitis) we may recommend addressing these problems first.

What Procedures Do You Offer?

We offer an array of treatment options. To remove teeth stains, we can offer KoR Deep Bleaching. For misshapen teeth or damaged teeth, we can provide dental bonding and lifelike ceramic crowns. We can also address problems with both the shade and shape of the teeth by placing dental veneers onto the front of the teeth. Finally, we can correct misalignment with Invisalign clear aligners.
