Comprehensive Cosmetic Dentistry
A smile makeover often involves more than just a cosmetic fix-up of your teeth. It also has to take into consideration your facial structure, the overall functioning of your mouth and how the teeth should come together.
Our doctors are trained to address more complicated issues, such as aggressive gum disease or a more complex mouth reconstruction where multiple dental implants might be needed.
Our dentists work to bring a patient’s mouth to full health prior to cosmetic work.

Cosmetic dentistry is a blending of art and science. We utilize the latest dental tools and procedures that are best suited to the condition of your teeth, your budget and your goals. Some of the procedures that we usually use in cosmetic dentistry are listed below. Click on a link for more information.
- Porcelain veneers
Typically veneers are used to cover chipped, stained or discolored teeth, to close gaps and even to fix mildly crooked teeth.
- Dental bonding
Considered a more affordable alternative than porcelain veneers, dental bonding is the application of high-grade composite material to the front of your teeth.
- Teeth whitening
With computerized, laser Zoom! whitening we can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in just an hour visit! We also supply custom whitening trays.
- Clear Teeth Straightening
We use Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear aligner systems for straightening teeth. Dr. Nathan Christensen will help you choose the system that is right for you.
Crowns remedy similar conditions as porcelain veneers, with the added benefit of improving the bite when needed. Crowns are usually used instead of veneers for cosmetic purposes when the tooth is too decayed or broken down for a veneer.
- Dental Implants
Dental Implants are the most natural and tooth-like replacement for missing teeth.
A bridge is another option for replacing missing teeth using porcelain prosthetic teeth supported by your own natural teeth, or implants, on either side.
- Gum Recontouring
With our state-of-the-art diode laser, we can remove excess gum tissue to reveal more length of teeth, or reshape your gum line for a more regular contour.
- Porcelain Inlays or Onlays
More durable than composite fillings yet less invasive than a crown, porcelain inlays and onlays are used for very decayed teeth or large cavities. Milled out of high-grade ceramic they are either placed between the cusps (inlay) or over the tooth cusps (onlay).
The dramatic changes can make in your smile through an extreme smile makeover will give you a more youthful, healthy look without having that “I got my teeth done” appearance. He can make your teeth rounder, smaller or narrower to best fit your facial features. And he can even reconstruct your smile, including replacing missing teeth.
Cosmetic Dentistry Lasers
A dental laser is a kind of laser specifically created for use in oral surgery or cosmetic dentistry. The use of a laser decreases pain or discomfort after surgery while reducing the need for anesthetics. Due to the cauterization of tissue there will be little bleeding following soft-tissue procedures.
