A bright, white, and even smile can provide you with a dose of self-confidence, so it is no surprise that people who are not blessed with such a smile often become self-conscious. At Bryan Hill, DDS, we use cosmetic dentistry to help you get the pearly whites that you have always dreamed of.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on improving the aesthetics of the mouth and smile. Even though many cosmetic dentistry procedures are elective, almost all of them can provide you with improved dental health benefits as well. The most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry are fairly simple and straightforward, while others are cosmetic procedures that require specialized care.
Teeth whitening is the most popular dental cosmetic procedure and over 90 percent of people who visit the dentist ask for this treatment. At Bryan Hill, DDS, Dr. Bryan Hill recommends the professional quality take-home brand Opalescence which comes in both a custom or premade option.

A crown is an artificial tooth or cap, which is placed on top of a decayed or damaged tooth or a dental implant. Crowns are made of many types of material, including porcelain. Porcelain crowns offer a lot of benefits as they are pretty strong and are a good fit for the front teeth. Porcelain crowns offer the most aesthetic benefits since they can be tinted according to your exact tooth shade. Additionally, porcelain reflects light, making it seem like your natural enamel.
Porcelain crowns are also highly stain-resistant so they will ensure your teeth remain white and bright for a long time.
Composite bonding is the use of composite resin material to repair or hide decayed, damaged, and/or discolored teeth. At Bryan Hill, DDS, Dr. Bryan Hill will etch the surface of your teeth lightly and apply a mixture of composite resin to them. We will then cure the bonding material to adhere tightly to your teeth. Composite bonding is an effective cosmetic procedure that works well for repairing slightly chipped and fractured teeth, hiding discolored teeth, and giving the appearance of straight teeth to crooked ones.
Dental veneers are very thin wafers of medical-grade ceramic that are custom-made to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. These teeth have the same light-reflecting properties as enamel and hence look very realistic.
As a result, dental veneers are a popular choice for fixing tooth defects like elongating short teeth, repairing cracked enamel, and correcting noticeable gaps between teeth.
