One of my favorite aspects of dentistry is being able to see the look on a patient’s face after a smile makeover. Teeth are at the forefront of communication and correlate closely with an individual’s self-esteem. I love having the ability to positively influence someone’s life in that way.

There are many quick fixes for cosmetic dentistry, but we focus on a long-term result for our patient’s ideal smile. We start with an in-depth consultation to determine desired outcome. Patients often think they know what they want going in, but additional details are uncovered that lead us to something different. Every case is unique, but often goals for the makeover are uncovered through photographs. Patients either bring in old photos of themselves or someone else whose smile they admire.

After I know exactly what the patient wants, I order a mockup from the dental laboratory. Adjustments can be made at this stage to ensure you get everything you want out of your new smile.

We partner with the best ceramists to create healthy, beautiful teeth. Utilizing dental labs with decades of experience allows us to create natural looking cosmetic crowns. A well-designed, well-produced porcelain veneer will blend in with the teeth, matching the rest of your smile flawlessly.
