At Carmel Dental Associates, we are proud to offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. That means that in addition to ensuring that your teeth are healthy and functional, we also ensure that their aesthetics are as beautiful as they can be. Our skilled and experienced team uses the latest technology to design and create the smile that is just right for you.

Depending on the current condition of your teeth and your desired results, we might use one or several cosmetic procedures. Of course, if there is any existing dental disease, we must treat it before we can start your cosmetic journey. Our cosmetic procedures include, but are not limited to:

Veneers: With thin, translucent, natural-looking veneers, we can correct such issues as the color, size, or shape of your teeth.

Crowns: Porcelain crowns can be placed over existing teeth to hide fillings, dark spots, chips, and other imperfections.

Bridges: Bridges can fill in the gaps left behind by missing teeth, creating a smile that is both functional and beautiful.

Whitening: Teeth can become yellowed or stained by many foods and beverages, as well as medications, smoking, and other factors. Whitening helps restore their original color.

Bonding: Bonding uses natural-appearing composite resin to hide chips or discoloration.

Gum Contouring: Gum contouring reshapes the gums to expose more of the tooth and change the shape of the gum line.

Dental Implants: If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the strongest, most stable, most natural-looking replacement option. Just a handful of implants can support an entire arch of replacement teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry


What does cosmetic dentistry include?


Cosmetic dentistry generally includes any procedure performed primarily for aesthetic reasons. There are cosmetic dental procedures that offer no functional benefits, like teeth whitening, and also some procedures that provide both functional and aesthetic improvement, like dental crowns and implants.


What is the best cosmetic dental procedure?


The best cosmetic dental procedure is the one you need to help you feel more confident in the appearance of your smile! When you come to our office for a consultation, we’ll discuss what it is you’re unhappy about with your smile and the treatments that can be used to help you achieve the results you’re after. Every patient is unique, so a cosmetic dental treatment that’s a good fit for someone else might not be exactly what you need.


What are smile makeovers?


Smile makeover is a term used to describe a comprehensive treatment that addresses a number of aesthetic and functional dental issues with a combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures. Smile makeovers often involve an extensive amount of dental work that takes several appointments to complete, but the result is a dramatic transformation.


How much does it cost to fix your smile?


The cost of cosmetic dentistry depends on the treatments you need. When you come to our office for a consultation, we will provide you with an estimate.


Do veneers ruin your teeth?


Veneers don’t ruin your teeth, but they do permanently change them. When we place veneers, we need to remove a layer of tooth enamel. This doesn’t compromise the overall structure or health of your teeth, but it does mean that your teeth no longer have the enamel needed for protection. You’ll always need to have veneers once you get them—you can’t change your mind and have them removed without replacing them with another set of veneers.


How can I get white teeth in one day?


The only way to achieve a noticeably whiter smile in a single day is with in-office teeth whitening treatments.


Which is better, bonding or veneers?


Veneers last longer than bonding, but bonding is less expensive, so the answer to this question comes down to your preferences and budget. Veneers also have the ability to correct a wider range of cosmetic imperfections than bonding.
