What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry specifically focused on improving the appearance of your smile. While oral health is a priority, cosmetic dentistry goes beyond addressing cavities or gum disease. It encompasses a variety of procedures designed to enhance the aesthetics of your teeth, gums, and overall smile.

Common cosmetic dental concerns addressed include:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Gaps or misaligned teeth
  • Uneven gumlines
  • Worn-down teeth

Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Investing in cosmetic dentistry offers a multitude of benefits that extend beyond just aesthetics. Here are some key advantages to consider:

  • Enhanced Confidence: A beautiful smile can significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem. When you feel good about how you look, you’re more likely to smile freely and make a positive impression on others.

  • Improved Oral Health: Certain cosmetic procedures, like dental crowns or veneers, can improve the health and functionality of your teeth. They can protect damaged teeth from further decay and restore proper chewing function.

  • Painless Procedures: Modern cosmetic dentistry techniques prioritize patient comfort. Many procedures are minimally invasive and require little to no anesthesia.

  • Long-lasting Results: With proper care and maintenance, many cosmetic dental treatments offer long-lasting results. This can save you time and money in the long run compared to constantly seeking temporary solutions.

  • Overall Well-being: Feeling good about your smile can positively impact your well-being. Studies have shown a correlation between a confident smile and improved mental and emotional health.

Our Cosmetic Dental Services

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a versatile and cost-effective procedure that uses tooth-colored resin to address minor cosmetic concerns.  Bonding can repair chipped teeth, close small gaps, or mask mild discoloration.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are also known as indirect fillings, as they replace specific parts of a damaged or decayed tooth. Inlays fill the areas between the tooth’s cusps, while onlays cover the cusps entirely. These restorations improve both the appearance and function of your smile and are perfect for tooth damage too severe for dental fillings but not severe enough for dental crowns. 

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile and remove deep-seated stains. We offer convenient in-office whitening treatments that can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single visit.

Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells custom-made to fit perfectly over your natural teeth throughout.  They are ideal for concealing chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps, or misshapen teeth.  Veneers provide a natural-looking and durable solution for a flawless smile.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth? Invisalign clear aligners offer a comfortable and nearly invisible alternative to traditional braces. Enjoy the freedom of removable aligners while gradually achieving a straighter, more confident smile.

For a comprehensive smile transformation, we offer personalized smile makeover plans. Our dentists will assess your smile goals and recommend a combination of procedures to achieve your desired outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions


Is cosmetic dentistry safe?

Cosmetic dentistry is generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced dentist. Modern materials and techniques are designed to minimize discomfort and ensure long-lasting results. Discuss your specific dental health and any potential risks involved beforehand.

How do I know if cosmetic treatments are right for me?

Whether cosmetic treatments are right depends on your goals and oral health. During a consultation, your dentist will assess your teeth, gums, and any existing dental work. They’ll also discuss your concerns and desired outcomes. If you have any underlying oral health issues, those will need to be addressed before cosmetic procedures can be performed.

How do I determine which cosmetic dental treatment is best for me?

Choosing the best cosmetic treatment depends on the specific concern you want to address. For example, teeth whitening is ideal for brightening a smile, while veneers can address chips, cracks, or discoloration. Invisalign is a great option for straightening teeth discreetly. A consultation with your dentist will help determine the most effective and suitable treatment.

How long do most cosmetic dental treatments last?

The longevity of cosmetic dental treatments varies depending on the procedure. Teeth whitening results can last for several years with proper care. Porcelain veneers are durable and can last a decade or more with good oral hygiene. Invisalign treatment typically takes 12 to 18 months, but the straightened teeth should last a lifetime with proper use of retainers.
