Porcelain Veneers

If you are looking to hide chips, cracks, stains, discolorations, minor gaps, misshapen or crooked teeth, Dr. Carlos and Dr. Mary can transform your smile with porcelain veneers. Considered to be one of the most versatile methods of cosmetic dentistry, these thin shell coverings are custom-made to your desired size, shape, and color. Creating a completely natural look and feel, the entire process requires only two visits to our office and will have you radiating because of your new and improved aesthetic.



While porcelain veneers are designed to be a permanent fixture on your smile, you may prefer something that can be removed at a later time. If so, our team can provide you with Lumineers. Similar to traditional veneers, these are much thinner and require little-to-no altering of your natural teeth, making them an enticing alternative for those who prefer a less invasive treatment. Not only do they cover imperfections, but they can be removed later on should you choose to return to your original smile.  


Teeth Whitening

When all you need is a whiter smile, we can offer two methods of treatment that will produce beautiful results. With our in-office teeth whitening treatment, we can blast away deep-down stains and produce a smile that is significantly brighter in less than an hour. If you prefer to try the process out at home, on your own time, we can take detailed impressions of your smile and provide you with customized whitening trays and high-grade bleaching gel that will have you seeing results in about two weeks.


Smile Makeovers

If you need a combination of cosmetic procedures, your weak smile will reclaim its power with a complete smile makeover. Following your complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultation, Dr. Carlos and Dr. Mary will personalize a treatment plan for your smile and partner with you to select therapies that meet your needs and fit within your budget. A smile makeover will allow you to officially say goodbye to your old smile and hello to new, more beautiful you!


Dental Bonding

If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect teeth that need cosmetic dentistry restorations, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. The dentists can apply liquid composite resin that has been shaded to blend with your tooth's color in order to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, they will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.


Cosmetic Gum Lifts

Should you wish to improve your smile by removing excess soft oral tissue, our cosmetic gum lifts are a great way to create an even, more beautiful gum line. When teeth appear short or “stubby,” this type of treatment allows us to reveal more of your natural tooth structure. We will use a soft tissue laser that not only allows for a quicker procedure but also reduces your recovery time because of the laser’s ability to minimize bleeding and prevent additional swelling.

Cosmetic dental treatments can:

  • Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
  • Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
  • Improve or correct bites.
  • Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
  • Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
  • Replace missing teeth.
  • Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.

Remember, your smile speaks before you even say a word!
