What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
The main branch of dentistry is general dentistry. It focuses on preventing many dental diseases and catching dental problems in during the early stages. General dentists offer the basic treatments to keep your teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and functioning. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, focuses on aesthetics.
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that has the power to alter the appearance of your teeth thus transforming your smile. It involves using one or more treatments such as p0rcelain veneers, professional teeth whitening, or Invisalign to help you accomplish that.
Cosmetic dentistry is optional while general dental care is absolutely necessary to live a healthy life. However, there are some cosmetic treatments that can help support your oral health. Many of the treatments we offer provide functional support such straightening your teeth with Invisalign or fixing a chipped tooth with dental bonding.

Our cosmetic dentistry services include:
If your teeth are stained, yellow, or dull, we can help you brighten your smile. Our teeth whitening solutions are comfortable and personalized to your smile. Tooth whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat common causes of tooth discoloration while boosting your self-confidence and improving your appearance.
We offer Opalescence Whitening take-home kits as well as in-office whitening treatments to fit your specific budget and schedule needs. Stronger than over-the-counter whitening kits, Opalescence leaves you with a bright white smile that you can be proud to show off. To learn more about the teeth whitening treatments we offer, see Teeth Whitening.
Our office offers teeth bonding solutions as a conservative, cost-effective approach to fixing minor damages and concealing small blemishes on your teeth surfaces. Whether it is a stain that has been resisting whitening treatments or a small chip that is distracting you from your smile, we can utilize tooth bonding to help restore your smile. During the tooth bonding procedure, a tooth-colored resin is bonded onto your tooth to improve its appearance. To learn more about the teeth bonding process, see Teeth Bonding.
If you suffer from crooked or misaligned teeth, we can offer clear braces as a discreet orthodontic treatment option. Our office utilizes ClearCorrect invisible aligners to assist our patients with mild to moderate orthodontic needs. These aligners are removable, and gradually apply pressure to your teeth over time to encourage them into a straighter position. Patients love our ClearCorrect aligners because they are a subtle alternative to traditional, metallic braces. To learn more about our clear braces treatment, see Clear Braces.
For patients seeking the ultimate smile makeover, we often recommend porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are customized ceramic caps that we secure over your original tooth to replace its aesthetics.
You can get one veneer or a full set of veneers, depending on your budget or cosmetic goals. Veneers allow you to keep the functionality of your natural teeth while also covering them up with a customized, beautiful tooth that blends in seamlessly with your natural smile. To learn more about what porcelain veneer process, see Porcelain Veneers.
