Your teeth do many things for you: they help you chew and talk, they even help you maintain your balance when walking, running, and jumping. But perhaps their most important function is to look good when you smile. An attractive smile is an important social asset—it helps in both your personal and professional life. It even helps in your most personal relationship of all—your relationship with yourself. Having an attractive smile helps you feel better about yourself, which will improve your quality of life on a daily basis.
Cosmetic dentistry recognizes that your smile isn’t truly functional if it doesn’t look good. That’s why we offer a variety of procedures to help you improve and maintain the appearance of your smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services We Offer
We want you to be able to correct any cosmetic complaint you may have about your smile. That’s why we offer these cosmetic dentistry procedures:
These procedures can be performed individually or combined in a customized smile makeover.
Solutions to All Your Problems
Chipped, Cracked, or Damaged Teeth: Can be corrected with porcelain veneers or dental bonding. If the damage threatens the structure of the tooth, it can be corrected with a dental crown that will protect and strengthen the tooth.
Gapped Teeth: Can be corrected with dental bonding or porcelain veneers.
Crooked Teeth: Can be corrected with Invisalign or porcelain veneers. Which is right for you depends on the exact state of your teeth, your timeline, and whether you have other tooth problems that you might want corrected.
Discolored Teeth: Can be corrected with teeth whitening or porcelain veneers.
Missing Teeth: Can be corrected with dentures or dental implants.
During your consultation, we can talk about your options and help you find which one is right for you.
Healthy Teeth Are Attractive Teeth
It’s a simple principle that is often neglected: healthy teeth are attractive teeth. We keep this principle in mind as we recommend treatments, and it’s an important thing to consider if you are thinking about improving your smile. Cosmetic dentistry isn’t separate from dentistry that focuses on preventing and treating oral decay and periodontal disease—it’s an extension of it.
Straighter teeth don’t just look better, they bite better and they’re easier to clean. A gap from a missing tooth doesn’t just look unattractive—it means that the rest of your teeth no longer have the support from that neighbor, which can put them under additional stress, cause drifting, and even lead to bite problems such as TMJ.
