Cosmetic Dentistry

Creating Beautiful Natural Smiles

Most cosmetic treatments aren’t designed to treat infection or bacteria, but that doesn’t mean they are without their benefits. Cosmetic treatments can increase confidence and empower people to show off their smile. Following are the types of cosmetic treatments available at Southern Family Dental.

Tooth-colored fillings

We offer tooth-colored fillings to match the shade of existing tooth structure so that your teeth retain their natural beauty.

Tooth-colored crowns

Tooth-colored crowns made from zirconia are a strong, long-lasting way to restore form and function to broken, cracked or severely decayed teeth.

Veneers

Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or ceramic bonded to the front of teeth to correct a number of conditions that detract from your smile, including chipped, cracked, crooked and stained teeth. They also can correct spaces between teeth. They can be matched to the color of your natural teeth, or they can be used to whiten your teeth by several shades. The brand of veneers we use requires minimal tooth preparation.

Teeth bleaching

We offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. Our in-office treatment takes about an hour and offers brilliant results in just one visit. The formula contains fluoride and potassium nitrate, which reduces tooth sensitivity and susceptibility to tooth decay.

The process begins with rinsing and drying off tooth surfaces. We apply a resin along the gum line to protect your gums from irritation, then apply the bleaching solution.

Take-home trays are available for touch-up treatments at home to boost the effects of the office treatment. Patients can choose from custom-fabricated or preloaded whitening trays.

Free whitening for life

Ask about our free whitening for life program at your next appointment. Patients who fulfill recommended treatments are eligible to receive a free, custom-made whitening tray ($250 value), and free professional bleaching gel at every six-month cleaning or recall appointment for life. Patients remain eligible as long as they maintain their six-month cleanings, stay current on any recommended treatment, and uphold our appointment
