Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental care that deals with the aesthetic appearance of the teeth. This focus can involve a number of treatments, ranging from quick and simple procedures like teeth whitening to more involved services, like dental veneers. Cosmetic dentistry is often used to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, discolored, chipped, or otherwise imperfect.
Some people choose to undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures for a more attractive smile on special occasions; others enjoy a more lasting option that truly transforms their appearance. Whatever the reason, cosmetic dentistry can be a great way to improve the look and feel of your smile.

Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses a bleaching agent to lighten the color of teeth and remove stains. It can also help to remove age spots or other blemishes on the teeth. Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment when performed or provided by a qualified dental professional; this is the best way to ensure you achieve the results you’re seeking without causing damage to your teeth.
At Dixie Dental Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we can whiten your smile either through our in-office procedure, by providing at-home bleaching trays, or with specially formulated whitening toothpaste. To determine the best option that fits your smile goals, contact our office to schedule an appointment. Together, we will determine the best way to restore your smile’s radiance!
Veneers are a popular treatment option that can be used to improve various aspects of the appearance of the smile. They are made from thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth to conceal imperfections. Veneers can be used to change the color, shape, and size of your teeth, and they can also be used to fix the appearance of teeth that are cracked, chipped, or crooked.
If you are considering getting porcelain veneers, it is important to consult with our team to see if they are the right treatment for you. We can assess your smile and tell you if porcelain veneers are a good option and how many veneers you may need to achieve the goals for your smile.
If you decide to get porcelain veneers, we will prepare your teeth for the treatment. This involves removing a small amount of the enamel from your teeth so that the veneers will fit properly.
- Once your teeth are prepared, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab. The lab will create custom-made porcelain veneers based on the impressions.
- When the veneers are ready, we will attach them to your teeth.
- This entire process is quick and simple and can be completed in as little as two visits.
- After the veneers are attached, we will give you instructions on how to care for them.
It is important to keep your teeth clean and healthy so that the veneers stay looking their best and your teeth remain healthy as well. You should also avoid biting hard objects, such as ice cubes or tough candy, to avoid breaking a veneer or a tooth.
If you take care of your porcelain veneers, they can last for up to 15 years and will greatly improve the appearance of your smile. To find out if porcelain veneers are the right treatment for you, contact our office today!
Bonding is a procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin material to fill in chips, cracks, or gaps between teeth to make them look more even and attractive. An LED light is used to bond the resin material to the teeth, and it hardens quickly to form a durable restoration.
Bonding is a quick, affordable, and convenient option for improving the appearance of your smile. It can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic problems, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Teeth with small cracks or fractures
- Discoloration or staining
- Uneven tooth length or shape
If you are considering cosmetic bonding, make sure to consult with our team to discuss whether it is the right option for you.
