What are the Various Cosmetic Procedures?
A visit to a dental hygienist to remove unsightly stains and brighten your teeth can do wonders to improve your smile, but modern dentistry offers a variety of ways to make your smile beautiful and change your life.
Whitening: Lightening discolored or stained teeth without altering the teeth in any way.
Veneers: Porcelain laminates bonded to the teeth to close gaps, change shape and color.
Bonding: Composite material bonded to your teeth, then shaped and polished for optimal appearance.
New Age Composites: Fillings and Inlays made to match the color of your tooth, used in place of silver or mercury amalgam fillings.
Onlays: Porcelain material that extend over the cusps of the teeth, saving more tooth structure than crowns.
Bridges/Implants: Fills the space where a tooth is missing.
Porcelain Crowns: A tooth like cap cemented in place, and matched to your tooth color.
Full Mouth Reconstruction: Restoring all of the teeth when major changes to your bite are required.
Orthodontics: Cosmetic orthodontics using Invisalign®. (Preferred Provider)
Laser Treatments: Reduces and reshapes your gums, enhancing your smile.

Other Smile Factors
Many factors are considered in the planning of your new smile, such as tooth color, width and length. The appearance of your gums and lips may also be a factor and may need to be addressed with treatments such as Cosmetic Laser Re-contouring to reduce the amount of gum showing in your smile, or a process called Bonding that can make your lips appear fuller and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Malocclusion (bad bite) is often one of the main causes of cosmetic problems. In some cases, correcting the bite may be part of the treatment plan and is essential to insure good function as well as the durability of the cosmetic treatment.
