Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry involves esthetic changes as well as functional changes to teeth within the "esthetic zone," or what others see when we smile.   Most individuals assume the only benefit is your appearance.  Most individuals benefit from the increased confidence when smiling, reflecting happiness, health, and wellness.  We fix smiles for different reasons including pre-wedding, graduation, job interviews, and even a run for a Governor.  Aside from a winning smile, restoring your smile cosmetically can lead to increased confidence in your daily grind (no pun intended.)

Many times we can restore your smile with veneers, which are more conservative than crowns yet provide the same beautiful esthetics. 

Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. There are two types of veneers, ceramic veneers that are produced by a dental laboratory and resin-based composite veneers. With proper care, your new veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come.  This solution enables us to change the color, shape and translucency of your smile by conservatively removing a minimal amount of tooth structure.
