Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.
Whitening: Many of our patients utilize tooth whitening to enhance the brightness of their natural teeth. We offer a take-home whitening option as well as an in office “Zoom” procedure–to whiten 5-6 times during that one in-office session. It is important to discuss your goals with us before initiating treatment. We can help guide you toward the treatment that best fits your needs.
Veneers: A veneer improves the appearance of the visible front surface of a tooth by covering it with a wafer-thin, custom-made shell of tooth-colored porcelain. Veneers can improve your smile by changing a tooth’s shape, color, and size.
Porcelain crowns: In order to achieve the longest-lasting and most natural-looking results, our patients receive high-quality, durable, porcelain crowns. To help ensure the best fitting and aesthetic crown possible, our practice has been working with the same dental lab for many years. Our patients receive picture-perfect restorations that are not finalized until you and Dr. Buntemeyer are completely satisfied. In many cases, we will do a custom shade with our dental lab technician to perfect your dental crown.
Cosmetic bonding: This is a conservative way to improve your smile by closing spaces, repairing chips, and reshaping your natural teeth to improve the appearance of your teeth and your smile.
