What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

    Of course, it’s most important to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy and you are doing the best you can to maintain your teeth for a lifetime.  We partner with our patients to get their mouths healthy and to keep them healthy, but once that’s been accomplished, there’s a whole field of dentistry devoted to making people look and feel their best, and that’s Cosmetic Dentistry.  Cosmetic dentistry is a blend of art, science, and technology that focuses on using a variety of the latest techniques and materials to give our patients the smiles they have always dreamed of.

    Cosmetic Dentistry makes it possible for people who hold back smiling (or are too embarrassed to smile because of flaws in the cosmetic appearance of their teeth) to smile- really smile!  It’s wonderful to have the tools in our arsenal that can help someone who has always covered their mouth when they smile or laugh, to laugh and smile freely and with confidence.  That’s what Cosmetic Dentistry is for.

  Cosmetic Dentistry has also proven helpful to business people so that they are more confident when dealing with the public.  Also, the fact that someone has an attractive smile has been shown to actually have customers/clients perceive the business person as more competent.  I guess confidence goes a long way, and nothing seems to make a person feel more confident than a healthy beautiful smile.

    What kind of changes can we make with Cosmetic Dentistry?  We can correct spaces between teeth.  We can repair broken or chipped teeth.  We can handle unsightly, stained or washed-out fillings.  We can whiten permanently stained or discolored teeth.  We can correct a crooked or poorly shaped smile.  We can change the size, shape, position and color of teeth!

  1. In a study completed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, researchers found that 9 out of 10 patients agree that an attractive smile is an important asset. They also found that 75% of Americans agree that an unattractive smile can hurt an applicant’s chance for career success

  2. The ZOOM! Chairside Whitening system is a scientifically advanced, tooth whitening procedure. It is a safe and effective procedure. Your teeth will become dramatically whiter in less than hour! It is an ideal procedure for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of ZOOM! in comparison to days of wearing trays or strips makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.

  3. Porcelain Veneers are artistically designed custom thin porcelain layers that are bonded on to teeth to create straight, healthy looking teeth without the use of orthodontics. It is usually a 2 visit procedure. During the first visit the dentist removes a small amount of the enamel & takes an impression, which is sent to our highly qualified technicians who design the Custom Veneers. It usually takes 7-10 days for the Veneers to be back. During this period the patient wears temporary Veneers that are custom crafted by the dentist.
    Our office also specializes in the Revolutionary No shots, No drills and Painless Lumineers. Call our office to find out if you are a candidate for this revolutionary procedure for enhancing your smile.
