If you feel afraid to speak for fear of someone seeing your teeth or if you hide your smile behind a closed mouth, you need a smile upgrade. Your smile should make you feel confident and ready to take on the world. Cosmetic dentistry is the art of upgrading your smile’s appearance while conserving as much natural tooth as possible. Cosmetic dentistry can be performed on healthy teeth in an effort to get you that smile that makes you feel confident. Your dentist can help you determine which cosmetic procedure is right for you, but being knowledgeable about your options is never a bad thing. 

Teeth whitening

Your dentist can offer professional-grade options that can get your smile many shades lighter. Your dentist can design a custom-fit mouth tray for you to take home and use with professional whitening gel. Your dentist can also perform an in-office whitening treatment that can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth in just one visit.


Some stains can be deep and impenetrable by even professional whitening. Bonding is a cosmetic option where a cosmetic resin is applied directly to the tooth to provide a uniform shape and color to your smile. Bonding can cover deep stains, close in small gaps, and cover chips and cracks. Bonding can also resize and reshape teeth to look more uniform.

Porcelain veneers

Bonding can work on multiple teeth, but it is a better option for one or few. Porcelain veneers is a really good option when several teeth need to be cosmetically enhanced. Veneers are shells that are bonded to the front of teeth. Porcelain veneers are often the most invasive, expensive, and time-consuming of cosmetic options, but it is the option that can make the most dramatic difference in appearance.
