It’s natural to want a beautiful smile. After all, your smile is often the first thing that people see upon meeting, and a vibrant smile can help create a great first impression. Fortunately, today there are plenty of cosmetic and restorative procedures to enhance and beautify your smile. 

Teeth Whitening

A beautiful, bright smile can reflect a self-confidence that makes others want to be around you. Unfortunately, teeth yellow with age and can also become stained by some foods, drinks, and tobacco.


One of the fastest and easiest cosmetic dental options for brightening your smile is teeth whitening. There are multiple options from custom at-home kits to KöR Whitening.

Straighter Teeth

When people think of braces or getting teeth straightened, they typically think of metal brackets and wires that are unattractive, can impede speech, cause discomfort and can make some self-conscious about their smile. Invisalign clear braces are a great alternative to straighten your teeth and improve your smile by using a series of invisible braces that are removable aligners.

Botox or dermal fillers for gummy smiles

Long or enlarged gum tissue, known as gingival hypertrophy, can result in a gummy smile. A gummy smile can easily and effectively be treated with Botox. The upper lip that is relaxed with Botox no longer contracts or elevates as much when smiling. The treatment is incredibly effective, and the results usually last 3 months.

Porcelain veneers 

Looking for that movie-star smile? Porcelain veneers are a wonderful option that allows patients to improve or change their smiles without extensive surgery.  One’s smile is often the first trait that people notice, and bright porcelain veneers are a simple option that helps patients find the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. Custom-designs are available for each porcelain veneer to create a natural, youthful smile that fits your features, gender, and personality.


Lift mouth sagging and smooth lip lines

Solid Filler PDO smooth thread therapy is a technique that stimulates natural collagen production while offering an immediate lift to facial areas plagued by lines and wrinkles. It can increase facial volume and can also help improve lip and smile lines. These tiny threads can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers, solid filler lifting PDO threads and Botox injections, or they can be used as a standalone service.
