Cosmetic dental care not only improves the appearance of the smile but the patient’s oral health as well. For example, patients who undergo professional teeth whitening treatment can also be supporting their oral health and hygiene when a dental cleaning is performed prior to whitening and their new smile inspires better daily hygiene habits. Straightening crooked teeth with Invisalign provides a more stable bite and may also help prevent the development of gum disease and tooth decay. Harmful bacteria can easily hide in between misaligned teeth and spread to other areas of the mouth if left unchecked. It is often easier and more likely that patients will maintain a smile that they feel great about.

Our cosmetic treatments can improve the natural look of the smile. Discover more about each of our dental solutions below:
Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. With clear Invisalign aligners, patients can discreetly straighten their smiles. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. This means that patients can remove their Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Porcelain veneers are shells of porcelain ceramic that are bonded to the front of the tooth enamel. Patients with small gaps between teeth or misshapen teeth can cover inconsistencies in their smiles with veneers. Dental veneers blend in with the natural smile because they are color-matched to fit the needs of each patient. As a result, veneers are a great option for patients with tough tooth stains as well as tooth damage.
Dental bonding uses malleable biocomposites to cover dental injuries and tooth discoloration. Tooth bonding treatment benefits patients who have chips or cracks in their teeth or single discolored teeth. Like porcelain veneers, bonded teeth can be color-matched to the smile.
Professional teeth whitening treatment helps erase years of tooth stains from the smile. Our dental office provides patients with in-office and take-home whitening options for their convenience. Additionally, for patients with deep tooth stains, we can provide porcelain veneers, tooth bonding treatment, and even dental crowns.
Cosmetic Dental FAQs
Do you want to know more about cosmetic dentistry? Read answers to several common questions that patients have about their cosmetic care:
Can you whiten porcelain veneers, crowns, or bonded teeth?
No, dental veneers, tooth crowns, or bonded teeth cannot be whitened. They are made of ceramic composite or biocompatible materials. These materials do not react to whitening treatments. However, patients who have deeply stained teeth can brighten their smiles with all three treatments. If you have an old crown, veneer, or bonded tooth that has become discolored over time, we can provide you with a bright and new replacement.
What are the differences between tooth bonding and porcelain veneers?
Dental bonding uses a malleable material that is sculpted directly onto the tooth enamel and then cured. Porcelain veneers are also bonded onto teeth, but they are made of thin ceramic shells. Tooth bonding may be a more economical option, but bonded teeth require more upkeep. Veneers are more permanent but also often more costly.
When will I see results from teeth whitening treatment?
Patients can see immediate results following teeth whitening treatment in our office. If patients choose take-home teeth whitening, they will usually see a change in their smiles after several weeks.
