What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetics of your smile. Although some cosmetic treatments may have benefits for your oral health as well, it primarily benefits your appearance. In general, cosmetic treatments can change the shape, position, size, and color of your teeth, depending on your individual needs. Cosmetic dentistry is highly customizable, and we can skillfully combine more than one treatment to achieve your desired results if necessary.

White River Dental Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
- Professional Teeth Whitening: We offer Philips Zoom Whitening, and Sinsational Smile® teeth whitening, which is performed in our office. Using a professional-strength whitening gel and an ultraviolet (UV) light to activate the ingredients, we can help you achieve a noticeably whiter smile in a single appointment. We also provide you with a take-home maintenance pen so that you can extend your results.
- Six Month Smiles® and ClearCorrect™: Both these systems are effective and inconspicuous orthodontic treatments. Six Month Smiles® uses clear brackets and low force to gently move your teeth into their ideal position in about six months. ClearCorrect™ uses transparent, removable aligners to gradually realign your teeth. Head over to our blog to learn more about invisible braces.
- Porcelain Veneers: We offer traditional and minimal prep veneers. Porcelain veneers can do a lot for your smile. They can conceal intrinsic stains that do not respond to teeth whitening; transform the size and shape of your teeth; conceal minor damage such as a chip or crack; and correct minor orthodontic issues such as slightly crooked or gapped teeth. Used on any number of teeth, the custom-made shells of porcelain can accomplish everything from a small change to a dramatic transformation of your smile. Head over to our blog on veneers to learn more.
- Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is a temporary but more affordable treatment option than porcelain veneers. Bonding can achieve many of the same goals as porcelain veneers, correcting small flaws for a beautiful, natural look. Dental bonding uses composite resin, the same material used for tooth-colored fillings.
- Dental Crown: A crown is a “cap” customized to cover a patient’s tooth. Typically, this procedure serves to restore a tooth’s shape and size, increase its strength, or enhance performance. In a successful procedure, the crown is cemented into place, perfectly encasing the tooth for full protection. If a tooth is damaged or discolored, its appearance can be enhanced with a porcelain or ceramic crown. If a patient has a noticeable filling, a crown can be used to cover it up, too. Head over to our blog to learn more about the actual procedure for dental crowns.
- Smile Makeover: If you will require more than one cosmetic treatment, we can combine procedures into a comprehensive smile makeover plan. This plan is personalized to meet your individual needs and goals. Many patients are amazed with the results we are able to achieve.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic treatments can have a dramatic affect on your appearance. Alone or in combination, they can help you look younger and healthier, and help put a smile on your face. Some cosmetic treatments, such as our orthodontic options, can also improve your oral health by reducing your risk for cavities and gum disease. Regardless of which treatment you choose, you will feel more confident about your smile.
