You probably have an idea of what your perfect smile would look like, even if you don’t think cosmetic dental treatments are in your reach. The fact is that today, with advances in materials and techniques, we have many affordable options at our disposable to help you achieve your dream smile.

There are so many different esthetic dental treatments to choose from that there’s virtually no limit to the smile transformations we can achieve for you. Would you like your teeth to look a little whiter, straighter, or more uniform in shape and size? Or, maybe you are only interested in fixing a few flaws like chipped teeth that detract from your appearance.

Some Cosmetic Treatments to Choose From:

  • Teeth Whitening: Professional teeth whitening is by far the easiest and most affordable way to transform your appearance. Many patients are pleasantly surprised to find that a simple teeth whitening treatment was all they needed to love their smile again!
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: This is an affordable and conservative approach that can address multiple esthetic issues. It involves using tooth-colored composite material to fill in chips and cracks and change the shape and size of your teeth. Bonding is a simple process, and we can usually bond several teeth in just one appointment.
  • Porcelain Veneers: A veneer is a super-thin shell of ceramic that is applied to the front surface of your teeth. We use veneers to alter your smile by concealing problems like uneven spacing, slight tooth misalignment, and severe staining that resists professional whitening treatments.
  • Invisalign Clear Braces: If you are tired of living with a crooked smile that makes you feel self-conscious, Invisalign is a short-term orthodontic option that straightens your teeth comfortably and in less time than traditional braces. One benefit patients love is that Invisalign aligners are removable for eating, brushing and flossing, and even special occasions!

These are just a few of the cosmetic options available, but treatments like dental crowns can also enhance your appearance and improve your oral health. Keep in mind, however, that with any cosmetic treatment it is essential to address underlying dental conditions before starting treatment. For a smile to be truly beautiful, it must be healthy. We don’t want you to undergo cosmetic treatment only to find that there are problems that should have been addressed before we started!
