Cosmetic Dentistry

Brighter smiles and bigger confidence

We want you to have a smile that you are excited to show the world. When you love the appearance of your teeth and your smile, it gives you more confidence, and that can positively impact many areas of your life from personal relationships to career prospects.

Sometimes patients mistakenly believe that cosmetic dentistry is always elaborate and time-consuming, and they are surprised to find out that there are many conservative and quick treatments that can enhance the beauty of a smile. For example, if you have teeth that are discolored, chipped, or slightly crooked, bonding can be a great solution to improve their appearance. With bonding, a tooth-colored composite resin is applied to your teeth to correct irregularities or imperfections that you don’t like. It is a relatively fast, simple, and inexpensive procedure compared to crowns, implants, and veneers.

Sometimes cosmetic procedures are coupled with restorative procedures (such as crowns and implants), and sometimes they are done alone for purely aesthetic reasons. If you feel self-conscious about your teeth or are interested in a more visually balanced smile, Dr. Dority can assess your current bite and the health of your teeth and provide you with different options to consider.

Look Good…

… Feel Good!

“If you are not sure what you would like changed, we’d be happy to have you come in for a complimentary consultation. It might be something as simple as tooth whitening. The great thing about cosmetic dentistry is that it can really change the whole person. Younger patients become more confident, and older patients instantly look ten years younger.” – Dr. Dority

Teeth Whitening

We offer a variety of whitening options so you can find the one that best suits your needs. Over the years, we have used several different whitening treatments, and we find that the traditional at-home bleaching trays still give our patients the best results. We provide the bleaching gel with customized retainers and over time, with repeated use, you’ll achieve the level of whiteness that you prefer.

For more immediate results, we also offer an in-office whitening system using Ultradent. This is similar to the Zoom tooth whitening system that many of you may be familiar with, but we find Ultradent is a more effective delivery system. The best time to try the Ultradent is right after your dental cleaning. Ask our hygienist about it when you come in for your next cleaning! Additionally, we have Ultradent Go trays which don’t require custom trays.

Are You a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Do you have fillings in your front teeth that have been changed several times and now look obvious? Are your friends constantly telling you that you have something stuck between your teeth but it’s actually a filling that shows? Veneers can correct these issues and give you back the confidence to smile.

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed that your front teeth are shorter than they were years prior? Chronic grinding of one’s teeth can cause that. With veneers, we can restore the tooth’s natural length and make you look younger.

Some patients have crooked teeth and desire straight teeth but don’t want to get braces or Invisalign. Veneers can make your teeth look straight. Other patients have very stained teeth that won’t respond to tooth whitening. Veneers are also a good alternative for teeth that are resistant to bleaching.

There are many cases in which veneers are a great option. Veneers can be placed on several teeth or even just one single tooth. We offer porcelain, ceramic, and Bioclear veneers. Your treatment plan will be customized to your needs and smile goals.

If you are a candidate for veneers, Dr. Dority will work closely with you to achieve your cosmetic vision and to enhance your beautiful smile in a way that fits naturally with your facial features and integrates seamlessly with your bite.
