Types of Cosmetic Dentistry: Straighten Crooked Teeth


Patients who have previously had braces or even people with crooked teeth without prior treatment can see dramatic results with Invisalign. This system works with a series of custom-made clear aligned that gently and discreetly reposition teeth over time.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers can be a lasting solution for tooth discoloration, gaps between teeth, misshapen or even damaged teeth. We use CEREC technology to create same-day veneers, meaning that your teeth are prepared and the veneers are installed on the same day. You can have a visibly brighter, straighter smile in just one day.

Whiten Teeth

We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options using Opalescence professional products. With this system, teeth are brightened up to 6 shades whiter, offering an economical way to achieve a brighter smile.

Fix A Gummy Smile

One of the most common reasons for a gummy smile is excess gum tissue, which may lead patients to become unhappy with their smile. Depending on the underlying issue, your treatment will use laser dentistry or other cosmetic dental technology to make you happy with your smile again.

Repair Tooth Damage

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-term tooth replacement solution for patients with missing teeth. They preserve jaw bone health and protect your oral health by taking the root of the missing tooth, restoring the same functionality and stability of your natural teeth.

Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding is an effective way to restore teeth with mild to moderate cosmetic concerns. This method can treat discolored, misshapen, chipped, cracked, or even misaligned teeth.

Dental Crowns

Although dental crowns are often used to restore teeth after a root canal, they can also be used to help you achieve cosmetic dentistry goals. Crowns can change the shape of an existing tooth in addition to preserving the natural tooth from additional decay.
