Cosmetic dentistry is any procedure that makes your smile more beautiful or aesthetically pleasing. This can be as simple as bonding a small chip on your front tooth, to crowning or restoring every tooth in your mouth. The simplest and sometimes most common cosmetic procedure is tooth whitening. Cosmetic whitening can be as easy as Crest Whitestrips, or as technical as using our advanced “Zoom” bleaching.
Dr. Heck believes that the most beautiful cosmetic smile is a natural healthy smile. Rather than encouraging people to have veneers or crowns placed to correct a smile, Dr. Heck and her staff encourage orthodontic treatment if at all possible. We believe so strongly in a healthy orthodontically treated mouth, that we routinely bleach teeth for free after orthodontic treatment.
When orthodontic treatment will not fix the smile, veneers or crowns are often indicated. Dr. Heck has decades of experience in cosmetic dentistry and over the years she has placed thousands of crowns, bridges or veneers.
With a simple dental exam the doctor can discuss your cosmetic options. With the advances of dentistry today, everyone can have a more beautiful and healthy smile.
