There's nothing quite like a confident smile. A great looking smile generates an attractive confidence immediately apparent for everyone to see. A beautiful, healthy smile enables you to freely express the real you! Be comfortable with yourself when you laugh with friends, spend time with your partner, speak with colleagues or when you meet a new aquaintence for the very first time. In many cases, the newly found confidence that results from an improved smile inspires a person to improve their character, their career, and their overall quality of life. Cosmetic dentistry is extremely important because it not only changes how you feel about your smile, but it can also change how people feel about you!

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is any dental treatment that improves the appearance of your smile. The most common treatments are designed to make the teeth brighter, straighter and more attractive by repairing damage or the effects of tooth wear. Teeth are often made to look younger. Old dental work that has discolored, metal fillings and unattractive dental restorations can be replaced with newer all-ceramic materials that closely match the color of natural teeth. The newest dental treatments not only look incredibly beautiful, but also closely resemble the physical properties of natural teeth as well for the best longevity, comfort and appearance.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can:
Change the size, shape, and alignment of your teeth
Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth
Improve or correct your bite
Lighten or brighten the color of teeth
Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
Replace missing teeth
Replace old, unattractive dental treatments
Improve the contour and symmetry of your gums
Reduce the appearance of gummy smiles
Your smile says a great deal about you...
...what is your smile saying about you?
What are the most common Cosmetic Dentistry treatments?
For discolored, damaged or misshapen teeth, porcelain restorations such as veneers or crowns typically deliver the most beautiful results with the best longevity. If the teeth are malpositioned, with crowding or spacing between them, simply moving them into better alignment orthodontically with Invisalign® is a great conservative solution. Sometimes, a combination of both treatments delivers the results you're looking for. Replacing old metal fillings with beautiful tooth colored restorations instantly transforms a darkened old smile into a bright and fresh new look. Smile whitening continues to be very popular if you're looking for a fast and effective way to give your smile a brighter boost. Other treatments comfortably and instantly improve the look of your gums or reduce the appearance of gummy smiles using a diode laser.
