Cosmetic Dentistry

This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.


This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses two methods: take-home whitening, and in-office whitening.

The take-home method involves having impressions taken from which laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 30 min to 1 hour a day. The entire process takes 1-2 weeks of daily use. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays should be used every several months.

In-office whitening- It's safe, effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. In comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays, In-office whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.  It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums and whitening gel is applied for 30-45 minutes.  Trays with gel are recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance.

The end results whether using trays at home or doing in-office is about the same. The cost of the take-home method is about half compared to in-office, and there is usually less post-treatment sensitivity.


Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are very esthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are not recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.


Metal or ceramics brackets are used to straighten malaligned teeth and improve bite. This treatment is very efficient and most popular. The treatment time is about 18 months for typical cases. Most cases are done without removing teeth, but sometimes extraction is necessay to gain enough space to straighten teeth. After treatment, you will have beatiful teeth for your life!


Clear Aligners straighten your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Clear Aligners straighten your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners periodically, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. This treatment is best for patients with mild symptoms (mild malocclusion) and usually the cost is high.
