Cosmetic Issues

I often hear women wish that they had whiter more even teeth. In many instances they have been living with teeth and smiles that they do not like. If this is true for you, dentistry may be able to improve the cosmetics of your smile.


Gummy Smile Case Study: Erin

When Erin came into the practice she was ready to change her smile. She wanted whiter, larger and more attractive teeth and wanted to show less gum.

Cosmetic gum surgery was done to reduce the amount of gum that shows and her restorative dentist placed porcelain veneers. Erin now loves her smile. Life is just too short not to smile.
