What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do?

In the past decade, there has been a dramatic rise in interest in cosmetic dentistry. Thanks to advances in dental technology and techniques, we are able to improve your teeth and smile with quick, painless, and affordable treatments.

There are many issues cosmetic dental treatment can address, including:

  • Change the size, shape, and alignment of teeth
  • Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth
  • Improve or correct bites
  • Lighten or brighten the color of teeth
  • Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • Restore missing teeth
  • Replace old, unattractive dental treatments

Your smile says a lot about you, and we are here to make sure your smile represents you well. Dr. Marie Durflinger has been restoring radiance to teeth and creating healthy, confident smiles for decades. We're excited to meet you and do the same for your smile.

Our Cosmetic Procedures

We believe that your smile is unique to you, which is why we craft a treatment plan that is customized to fit your needs. With our full spectrum of cosmetic options, we can find the quickest and most efficient way to achieve the results you're looking for. Our cosmetic services include:

Cosmetic Bonding: Composite bonding is usually not an insurance-covered benefit, but it is an affordable and non-invasive alternative cosmetic procedure. We use composite that artfully matches the shade, translucency, and texture of your teeth. Bonding can be used to close gaps between teeth and eliminate chips and discoloration.

Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers consist of a thin shell of porcelain that covers the front, edges, and a small portion of the back of an anterior tooth. Veneers are used for cosmetic and reconstructive purposes to discreetly hide stained and worn-down teeth. They are also used to improve the appearance of slightly crooked teeth, so they look straight. Veneers can alter the shape and color of your teeth, including those that are discolored by age or unsightly mercury fillings.

Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening creates an immediate improvement in the appearance of your smile. Our teeth whitening services are a non-invasive dental treatment to brighten the shade of your tooth enamel to make your smile whiter and brighter. Since teeth whitening has now become the number one aesthetic concern of many patients, there are many products and methods available to achieve a brighter smile.

Dental Implants: A dental implant consists of a post made of a body-safe metal, an abutment, and a crown, bridge, or denture. These restorations are designed to replace missing teeth from the root to the crown. A titanium post is surgically anchored into the jaw to create a stable and reliable base for your restoration. This artificial tooth root also continues to stimulate your jaw, which helps to prevent bone loss.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

We understand that you will have questions about our treatments, and we encourage you to share your questions and concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about cosmetic dentistry.

How long do veneers last?

Our porcelain veneers look and feel natural and are very durable. When you follow our dentist's instructions to properly maintain your veneers, they can last for 10-15 years.

Dental implants are easy to care for because you simply brush and floss them twice daily just like your natural teeth. It is important to also maintain your biannual dental appointments so our dentist can check the integrity of your implant-supported restoration.

Professional teeth whitening is highly effective and can last for many months. Many people only have their teeth whitened once a year. You can improve the longevity of your brighter smile by limiting highly pigmented foods and drinks, avoiding tobacco products, and maintaining a good oral hygiene routine.
