Cosmetic dentistry is a specialized practice in the dental field that focuses on improving the appearance of our patient’s smiles through safe and effective procedures or techniques. Our service options can brighten the tooth color, restore the tooth shape, or transform the entire smile’s appearance.
To learn more about our cosmetic options, please read below! Call our Goldsboro, NC office today if you have any questions about our procedures or would like to schedule an appointment.
Bonding is a quick and simple procedure used to restore any teeth suffering from slight cracks or chips. Using tooth-colored composite material (the same material used in fillings), we paint the substance over the flawed area and set it in place by a blue LED light. Afterward, we polish the composite to ensure it blends seamlessly with the rest of the tooth.
Teeth Whitening (in-office)
Our whitening procedure is a treatment provided in our office to uniformly brighten the shade of your teeth while removing stubborn staining and discoloration. Whiter teeth can make your smile look healthier, cleaner, and more cosmetically appealing. While you may find many whitening products to choose from in stores, we can assure you that our treatment will produce results that are much more intense; additionally, our treatment is more gentle on sensitive teeth!

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are cemented to the surface of your teeth to simulate the appearance of brightly colored, perfectly aligned smiles. Veneers can conceal the appearance of staining, discoloration, gaps, crowding, chips, and cracks. When well maintained and cared for, this cosmetic option can last up to 10 or 15 years!
It’s important for you to know that once veneers have been applied to your teeth, they will need to be continually replaced and worn for the rest of your life. This is due to the preparatory step performed before veneers are applied:
- In order for the shells to attach to your teeth without appearing bulky or unnatural, the thin outer coating of your enamel must be removed.
- This protective layer can not regenerate, so veneers will be necessary to protect the tooth’s outer surface in the future.
Ridge augmentations are procedures that are commonly conducted following the extraction of a tooth. This is performed by filling the empty tooth socket with synthetic or natural bone material so that the hallowed area retains density. This makes it possible for dental implants to be easily placed after the ridge heals.
A gum lift is a cosmetic procedure that may be performed to enhance the appearance of your smile when teeth are hidden behind excessive gum tissue. These “gummy smiles” may cause teeth to appear smaller and less prominent, leading to a less desirable appearance. Gum lift procedures are minimally invasive and allow our team to resculpt your gum line to compliment the teeth, improving the overall appearance of the smile.
