Even if you brush and floss every day and go to the dentist every six months for an oral exam and dental cleaning as recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), your teeth are still vulnerable to damage from your diet, lifestyle factors like smoking, your family history, and the normal aging process itself.

The most common cosmetic and restorative dental options include:

  • Professional teeth whitening treatments
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Tooth-colored dental fillings
  • Crowns and bridgework
  • Dental implants
  • Invisalign clear aligner trays
  • Gum surgery for gum recession or "gummy smile"

Chipped, cracked, and stained or discolored teeth are among the most common complaints, but there are a number of issues that can affect an otherwise attractive and healthy smile. On the other hand, there may not technically be anything "wrong" with a tooth, other than its shape or spaces and gaps between teeth. Cosmetic treatments are also available if you would simply like to improve the aesthetic quality of your smile for personal and professional reasons. Treatments like bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers can also strengthen and fortify a fractured tooth.
