Common Cosmetic Dental Procedures

When you want to improve your smile, you have plenty of options. Cosmetic dentistry offers a wide range of treatments, services, and procedures that can give you the smile you have always dreamed of. Some of the most common cosmetic procedures performed at our office include:

  • Teeth Whitening: Also referred to as bleaching, this treatment can whiten and brighten stained or discolored teeth. Usually, teeth whitening is completed in a dental office, but can be performed at home, with directives from your dentist.
  • Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are a highly sought-after cosmetic treatment. These restorations are long-lasting and quite durable. Veneers are thin “jackets” or shells that are made from porcelain or a high-quality composite material. They are a viable option in addressing imperfections such as crooked , chipped, gapped, or discolored teeth.
  • Dental Implants: This corrective treatment option is designed to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are usually made out of titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone. This restorative treatment is designed to replace the root of the tooth. Once healed, implants can be restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
  • Dental Crowns: Caps – or crowns – are placed over teeth that have been severely damaged by decay or trauma. Additionally, they can also be used to mask cosmetic imperfections, such as chips, cracks, discoloration, and more.
  • Dental Bonding: Bonding is a procedure in which tooth-colored composite resin is applied. Dental bonding addresses such imperfections as stained teeth, chipped teeth, or teeth that are broken.
  • Orthodontic Treatments: Crooked, overlapped, gapped, or rotated teeth can be addressed with orthodontics. This type of treatment involves the use of traditional braces, clear braces, clear aligners, retainers, or other devices to straighten the teeth over time. Depending on the complexity of the case, most patients complete treatment in about 18 to 24 months.
