Porcelain Veneers

Do you have multiple imperfections in your smile that you wish you could remove all at the same time? With porcelain veneers from Dr. Heil, hiding everything from permanent stains to chips and cracks to gaps is as simple as creating a custom porcelain sheath and bonding it to your minimally-modified tooth! Each veneer is customized to match your preferred shade, shape and size, ensuring that it blends in perfectly with the rest of your smile.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

Restoring teeth damaged by chips, cracks, stains or other concerns is important, but we understand that you don’t want your dental treatments to be noticeable in your smile. This is exactly why we utilize eMax and Zirconia materials to create your metal-free restorations. Whether you need a crown to cover a misshapen tooth or a series of stains that no amount of whitening can fix, you can expect a natural-looking smile by the end of treatment.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Sometimes the smallest imperfections can be the most noticeable, especially when they are present in the teeth visible in your smile. Thankfully, you don’t have to pay a large amount of money just to make your smile look the way you want it to. Cosmetic bonding is performed very similarly to tooth-colored dental fillings. Once the material is custom-shaded to match your existing teeth, we’ll apply it to the crack, chip, gap or stain and then harden it instantly using a special curing light.

Teeth Whitening

For many, a brighter, stain-free smile is all they need to experience a notable boost in their appearance and self-confidence. Whether you have stains from eating too many richly pigmented foods or you’ve had them for years and could never remove them with at-home brushing, our powerful take-home whitening solution helps you achieve a brighter, radiant smile quickly and effectively.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Why Is Cosmetic Dentistry So Popular?

Put simply, cosmetic dentistry is popular due to three factors. These are society’s improved oral health, modern dental tools, and the field’s affordability.

Compared to years past, people today have healthier smiles. That’s only natural – they know the value of clean mouths, and they use better oral products. As such, they can pay more attention to how their grins look. Rather than fix tooth damage, they have leeway to prioritize pretty teeth.

At the same time, cosmetic dentistry offers great results now. Modern tools ensure it can deliver gorgeous grins. Therefore, people trust cosmetic dental work to have worthwhile effects.

Lastly, cosmetic dentistry is more affordable than before. Its procedure prices have steadily fallen over the decades. (Naturally, said reduction is partly due to better technology). For this reason, larger groups consider it a viable option.

What Is the Difference Between a Dentist and a Cosmetic Dentist?

In reality, general and cosmetic dentists aren’t too different. They all receive basic dentistry training and get DMD or DDS degrees. That said, only cosmetic dentists specialize in aesthetic treatments.

You see, any qualified dentist can perform certain essential services. (Some examples are oral exams, fillings, dental crowns, etc.) However, a cosmetic one gives special focus to how your smile looks. They’ll thus offer treatments designed solely to beautify your teeth. In that way, they exercise an artistic touch that a general dentist lacks. Many also pursue continuing education in cosmetic services.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

When done by a qualified dentist, yes – cosmetic dentistry is quite safe. It shouldn’t cause any lasting harm to your teeth, gums, or other mouth tissues.

Remember, dentists value your oral health. They won’t do anything that puts your mouth at risk. Given this fact, cosmetic dental options are well-tested and vetted. The materials and ingredients they use aren’t toxic. Plus, any enamel shaved away is replaced by protective layers.

Of course, not every cosmetic service is right for every patient. Some cause problems if a prior health issue isn’t treated first. So, a dentist will assess your mouth beforehand and confirm which procedures won’t work for you.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Overall, the lifespan of cosmetic dentistry varies. How long its effects last will depend on the treatments you get.

For example, quick cosmetic work is usually short-lived. Options like teeth whitening and dental bonding don’t alter your grin much. As a result, they don’t tend to last very long. (One exception is gum recontouring, which produces permanent results since gum tissue can’t grow back.)

In contrast, invasive services like veneers and crowns differ. They change your tooth structure to place prosthetics. For that reason, their effects can persist for a long while with proper care.
