Having a smile that you love and feel comfortable with can make all the difference in your overall confidence. Many of our patients visit us with specific concerns about the way their teeth look, and our team offers great solutions to meet every person's unique needs. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are a great way to get the smile that you've always wanted. Additionally, some of these procedures can be used for more than just aesthetic purposes. 

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Dental technology has come a long way in recent years, and our team can help you find the best treatment to meet your needs. Here are some of the most popular choices: 

  • Zirconia crowns: Zirconia crowns are far more durable than porcelain crowns, and they look and feel like natural teeth. Crowns are often used after severe tooth decay has been treated, or to cover cosmetic flaws on specific teeth. This is a very common treatment, and your crown will be made to custom fit your tooth. 
  • Lumineers: Lumineers are thin, durable shells that are placed over teeth. This treatment can be used on teeth that are discolored, or have cracks or chips. They can also be used to fill gaps in the teeth. This procedure is easy, non-invasive, and usually only takes two visits to our office to fully complete!
  • Bonding: Dental bonding can be used to fix any imperfections on your teeth, or to fix any cosmetic level cracks or breaks in the teeth. We use a resin that is matched to color of your teeth to fill in the areas needed, and then the resin is shaped by our dentist to create the aesthetic look that you want for your teeth. This is yet another easy and fast cosmetic dentistry treatment option.
