Cosmetic dentistry is a dental specialty that aims to add a little — or a lot — of dazzle to your smile.
Whereas general dentistry emphasizes making your smile as healthy as possible, cosmetic dentistry takes that healthy smile to beautiful new heights.
Your mouth is more than just a functional tool for eating and speaking. Your smile is an essential component of your appearance and a very visible reflection of your personality.
Aesthetic imperfections in your teeth or gums can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and hold you back from wanting to share it with the world.
Cosmetic dentistry can rejuvenate your smile, turning it from a source of embarrassment into a source of pride. And when you’re proud of your smile, it makes you and everybody around you happier.
Dr. Burges helps patients achieve their cosmetic goals with a wide range of state-of-the-art services, including:
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to upgrade the look of your smile, giving you a renewed and lustrous look with a quick, easy, and minimally invasive treatment. Dr. Burges provides you with state-of-the-art at-home whitening trays that can brighten your smile by up to eight shades.
Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that cover up the front-facing portion of your visible teeth and effectively mask cosmetic imperfections like cracks, chips, or staining. They’re typically made of porcelain, which has a similar color and translucency as your natural teeth, so your new smile will look just as natural as it is beautiful.
Dental bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that fixes minor imperfections in your teeth by filling them in or covering them up with a putty-like dental resin that permanently bonds to the surface of your teeth.
Inlays and onlays are partial crowns. They replace a large portion of your enamel in order to restore, strengthen, and protect your tooth, but they don’t cover the entirety of your tooth, like a crown does. Inlays are used when the cusps of your tooth aren’t damaged, whereas onlays are used in cases of more extensive damage.
