What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Have you ever smiled with your mouth closed? Do you ever feel self-conscious when you laugh? If so, you’re not alone. A lot of our patients who seek cosmetic dentistry feel self-conscious about their smiles.
The good news is that you can schedule a consultation with one of our dentists to restore your smile and your confidence.
Here are some of the options you may discuss with your dentist.
You may not need to look further than your coffee mug to discover how your teeth become dull or yellow over time.
Certain foods and drinks (like coffee) contribute to tooth discoloration. Fortunately, our dentists are able to make custom whitening trays to help you brighten your smile from the comfort of your own home.
Teeth whitening at home is not only convenient, but easy to maintain over time.
Once we create your teeth whitening tray, you’ll only need to buy bleaching gel on occasion to maintain your white smile.
Ask our dentists if you’re a candidate for professional teeth whitening.
A veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell we bond to the front of your tooth. Porcelain veneers are able to repair teeth with small chips, cracks, or stains.

Inlays & Onlays
A dental inlay or onlay is a good compromise between a filling and crown.
Our dentists want to help you preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible, which is why we provide inlays and onlays to patients.
Unlike fillings that are applied directly to your teeth, your dentist will need to create a restoration that matches the natural color and shape of the tooth. This tooth restoration is called a dental inlay or onlay.
