What issues can cosmetic dentistry address?

Cosmetic dentistry can be used to address a number of functional and aesthetic issues with your smile. Our Medford dentists offer customized treatments for correcting common cosmetic dental problems such as teeth that are:

  • Crooked, unevenly spaced, or gapped
  • Irregularly sized
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken
  • Severely discolored
  • Missing

No matter what issues are detracting from the appearance of your smile, we can tailor your treatment to provide you with the look you deserve.

What are some of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Every smile has unique needs, and no single procedure is ideal for every issue. Depending on your individual concerns, we may recommend cosmetic dentistry services such as:

In some instances, our cosmetic dentists may even combine services to provide a cosmetic smile makeover.

What is the most effective way to straighten teeth?

The solution best for addressing your malocclusion will depend on the extent of straightening that is required. For minor issues, porcelain veneers are often the best solution. These wafer thin shells can be placed over the front of your teeth to address many imperfections, but cannot correct more pronounced levels of malocclusion.

If your issues require a more advanced approach, we may recommend Invisalign®. Invisalign is incredibly effective at correcting moderate to severe malocclusion in adult mouths, but is significantly more comfortable than traditional wire and bracket braces.

How are teeth stains removed?

Our cosmetic dentists offer the latest teeth whitening solutions including in-office and take-home treatments. If your staining is underneath the enamel or a result of fluoridation or certain medications, porcelain veneers may be a better solution. All of your options will be discussed with you during your comprehensive initial consultation.

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

Your smile is one of your most noticeable features. If you are unhappy with its appearance, you may feel less comfortable or even awkward in a variety of situations. What’s more, issues such as malocclusion or missing teeth can have a negative impact on your overall oral health, making it important both for appearance and function that these problems be addressed.

We want you to be comfortable with your smile. But we also want your smile to provide a lifetime of strength and function. We will work with you on an individual basis to ensure all of your needs are met and you are provided with the attractive and resilient smile you were born to have.
