Cosmetic dental procedures are designed to enhance the appearance of your teeth and gums, focusing on creating a smile that is natural, healthy, and attractive. A radiant and vibrant smile can have a transformative effect, elevating self-confidence and giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. A straight, balanced smile also distributes the forces of chewing evenly and is simpler to clean and maintain.
Cosmetic Dentistry procedures include:
Dental veneers are custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. Made from porcelain or composite resin, veneers can address tooth discoloration, chips, cracks, or gaps, giving your teeth a flawless appearance.
Also known as tooth bleaching, whitening removes stains and discoloration, resulting in a brighter smile. Professional in-office whitening involves application of concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which penetrates the enamel and breaks down stains.
We can also create custom-made trays that allow you to apply medium-concentration whitening agents to your teeth in the comfort of your own home.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect are popular brands of clear aligners that are used to straighten teeth, and correct bite issues. Unlike traditional braces that use brackets and wires, clear aligners use a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that fit over the teeth and gradually shift them into the desired position.

Tooth and gum contouring
This procedure is used to correct teeth that are too long, too short, or have uneven shapes or sizes. It involves removing or reshaping excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth surface. Tooth and gum contouring can often be completed in a single visit and can enhance the aesthetics of your smile.
Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a common medication used for cosmetic purposes to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and fine lines. In dentistry, Botox is also used as a therapeutic treatment to help reduce pain, and treat certain dental conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), and bruxism (teeth grinding).
Additionally, other cosmetic dentistry treatments include dental crowns, dental implants, dental bridges, and smile makeovers.
