Cosmetic dentistry is a popular and easy way to elevate your look. (Imagine smiling with all the confidence in the world!) We offer a wide range of options that will make you fall in love with your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is less about changing you, and more about bringing the true you to the surface. Most patients who choose cosmetic dentistry don’t want to look like someone else–just best version of themselves. Our goal for every cosmetic procedure is to make your smile as impressive as you are.
Smiles are not a one-size-fits-all asset. When we help patients dream about their ideal smile, our goal is to take every element of the patient into account. It isn’t just about straight, white teeth–it’s about building a smile that fits your facial features and your personality. We use advanced technology to assess jawline, lips, mouth shape, tooth size, facial symmetry and your unique personality when building your ideal smile. Smile design is a collaborative process between you and your dentist. Every smile is different, and we strive to enhance your overall appearance with the smile that’s been custom-tailored for you.
Much like an architect plans and draws a blueprint, your smile design appointment plans and visualizes your new smile. The software we use takes a photo of your current smile and we collaborate with you to manipulate the image until we land on your perfect result. Once there, we lay out the steps and procedures we will use to get there. The best part is seeing the result before the process begins!
Porcelain veneers have exploded in popularity since selfies have become commonplace. Once used only by the rich and famous, now we place veneers to help patients even out a crooked or damaged smile or take an ordinary smile and make it remarkable.
Many patients are looking to elevate their look without invasive plastic surgery, fillers or facelifts. Choosing veneers is a less invasive way to make a big change.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain, hand crafted specifically for you. we will prepare your teeth for the veneers by sanding down some of your natural teeth. Then the doctor will prepare your teeth, Once prepared you will get a temporary set of veneers. A lab will craft your final veneers and then you’ll return for final placement. Once complete, he will attach each individual veneer — making sure they fit perfectly. You will walk away transformed.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures for good reason. Everyone experiences staining and discoloration. Years of drinking coffee and regular wear and tear can leave your smile less luminous than you’d like. Fortunately, teeth whitening is a safe, fast procedure that can whiten your smile up to 8 shades in less than an hour.
Philips Zoom!® is the most asked for teeth whitening procedure by patients. In less than an hour your teeth can become 8 shades whiter. Drs. Petersen, Diehl or Weber will apply a prescription-strength whitening gel to your teeth and then expose your teeth to a special LED light to speed up the whitening process. You will leave your appointment with a gleaming smile!
Tooth bonding is a quick and easy procedure that can help patients who struggle with chips, gaps, discoloration or cracks in their teeth. We can smooth out rough edges using a tooth-colored resin material. Just like tooth colored filling material, Drs. Petersen, Diehl and Weber can carefully rebuild cosmetic issues using the same material.
Like patching a wall, the doctor uses the material to fill and build out small imperfections. You can typically expect a single appointment to complete the bonding work.
Many people are unhappy with where their gums hit their teeth. Longer gums make it look like your teeth are short and can distract from your smile. The good news is Drs. Petersen, Diehl and Weber are skilled at gum contouring. Gum contouring is a special procedure designed to expose more of your teeth, balancing the visible ratio of gums and teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
If you are a good candidate for gum contouring, we will numb you with local and or topical anesthetic. Then, the doctor will carefully contour your gums until your smile is exactly how you want. It’s important to take it easy after the procedure. Make sure you only eat soft foods and follow the doctor’s instructions for recovery.
