5 Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

If you aren’t in love with your smile, cosmetic dentistry treatments are an excellent way to make it brighter and whiter, and help you feel more confident. Some procedures can be more necessary, but others are elective and just a way to be happier with your smile. In this blog, we’ll be covering five of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments that can help you feel better every time you grin.

Teeth Whitening

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments is teeth whitening. While some patients think that at-home treatments are a viable alternative, you can get impressive results in a more reliable environment by visiting your dentist. Your teeth whitening appointment will often first involve removing any tartar or plaque from your mouth so that your teeth can be whitened evenly. Next, your dentist will apply a special whitening agent to lighten your teeth up to multiple shades in a single visit.

Because your dentist will be overseeing the entire treatment process, you can brighten your teeth without worry! Systems like Sapphire Teeth Whitening can lift your teeth up to seven shades in a mere 30 minutes. Sapphire Teeth Whitening also includes integrated fluoride, so you are protecting your teeth while you are whitening them.

Dental Bonding

If you have a tooth with discoloration or chipping, what options do you have to make it look like a pristine natural tooth again? One of the best options is known as dental bonding. Dental bonding can fill in parts of missing fractured or chipped teeth, fill gaps between two teeth, and help get rid of staining or discoloration. Dental bonding can last for many years and can be touched up, so you can have a healthy looking smile for years to come.


Veneers can completely change the look of your smile and help to keep your natural teeth strong while beautifying the overall appearance of your grin. Veneers are wafer-thin sheets of porcelain that are coordinated with the shade of your teeth and attached to the front of each tooth. They are stain-resistant, so you can keep them nice and bright.

Patients get porcelain veneers for many reasons, including:

  • Crooked teeth 
  • Teeth that appear too large or small for your mouth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stained or heavily discolored teeth
  • Slight gapping between teeth

Veneers are customized to your smile, so you will get a personalized result that meets your exact vision.


Lumineers are a popular new type of veneers that are designed to be even thinner, painless, and completely reversible. Lumineers are incredibly thin, and they can be customized to make your smile into something even more spectacular. They can last for over 20 years and be removed at any time, so if you choose to take them off in the future there will be no way to tell that you had veneers in the past.

Lumineers do not require any shaving or drilling into your tooth structure, and they can also be placed over bridgework or crowns as part of your smile makeover. They are made of a special patented material that is as thin as a contact lens and different from the material used in traditional veneers.

Inlays and Onlays

If you want a more conservative alternative for your tooth restoration, inlays and onlays are a great choice. Inlays and onlays can be a simple way to repair your back teeth with moderate tooth decay or cracked teeth without extensive damage. Depending on your preferences and the type of damage, composite resin, gold, or porcelain may be used. Inlays and onlays have a natural look, so they are undetectable compared to traditional metal fillings.
