We can Transform Your Smile with the following cosmetic dentistry procedures:

Cosmetic Dentistry with Veneers for Crooked or Misshapen Teeth

We can correct your teeth without braces. Crooked and misshapen teeth are not only unsightly, but they can lead to cavities, gum disease, and other oral health concerns. Braces can often take months or years to correct your smile, so we offer alternatives to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

Instead of braces, some patients elect to get dental veneers. Dental veneers can offer a great smile solution for many different kinds of problems. For those who don’t want to get braces, veneers often help. They provide instant orthodontics instead of going through years of orthodontic treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry Options for Replacing a Missing Tooth

Missing teeth can hurt your confidence and affect your health. If you’re chewing only on one side, you’re overcompensating for the missing tooth and putting a lot of pressure on your healthy teeth. A missing tooth can cause other teeth to shift, further damaging your smile and compromising your bite. Fortunately, we offer several solutions and can help you choose which replacement option is right for you.

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, the particular solution will depend on a few factors. We offer implants, dentures, veneers, and other creative options for missing teeth. Upon visiting our office, our dentists will be happy to look at your situation and walk you through the options.

Professional Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

Over time, everyone’s teeth shift from pearly white to varying shades of yellow. Normal wear and tear are hard to avoid or prevent. Additionally, drinking dark-colored drinks, smoking, certain medications, genetics, and chemical staining make professional whitening necessary. Almost all staining can be removed through professional whitening, also referred to as teeth bleaching. We offer in-office or at-home teeth whitening options.

We can also offer a few options other than traditional teeth whitening. Most commonly, we place dental veneers as another teeth whitening solution. We’re happy to give you veneers or lumineers that will make your smile look and feel amazing.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Replacing Silver Fillings

While old silver fillings, also called amalgam fillings, may last for years, they develop cracks due to temperature changes in the mouth and the metal expanding and contracting. This can allow bacteria into the tooth causing cavities or weakening the tooth requiring a new filling or a crown.

Old silver fillings have now been linked to a whole slew of health problems. Not only that, but silver fillings are also unattractive and easy to spot. Instead, we recommend having your silver fillings replaced with white fillings. Not only are white fillings healthier, but they’ll also blend right in with your teeth. For that reason, we consider filling replacements as more than just a restorative solution.

Cosmetic Dentistry for Transforming Your Gummy Smile

When you smile, do you feel like too much of your gums show or your teeth appear too small? We’ve had several patients call this a “gummy smile.” A simple, “cosmetic dentistry near me” procedure can reshape the gum tissue to create a fuller, more cosmetically pleasing smile.

Using laser recontouring, we can make your gummy smile smaller and more attractive. We’re happy to make sure your smile shows your happiness and confidence. With gummy smile correction procedures, we’ll help you look and feel great.

This gentle Lincoln, NE dentists says: “I saw a lot of different dental specialists when I was young. My orthodontist changed my life by giving me the smile I am remembered by today. I love people, art, and making an impact. Once I discovered the potential impact a confident smile can make in someone’s life, dentistry became the only career that would allow me to maximize my creative skills while fulfilling my drive for helping others. Dentistry is about so much more than teeth, and the world is finally starting to acknowledge this. I am so excited to incorporate my background in Nutrition Science and my passion for overall well-being to provide the next level of care for my patients.
