It can be hard to show real confidence when you have doubts about your smile. Unfortunately, if you fret over the visibility of a damaged or misshapen tooth, feel embarrassed by a noticeable blemish, or have any other cosmetic concerns, those feelings of self-consciousness can be hard to avoid. Cosmetic dentistry has helped many people take on the problems that have made them unhappy with the appearance of their smile. While you may have already assumed that cosmetic treatment can lead to impressive results, it might surprise you to hear how a small amount of work can lead to those results. At our Seattle, WA dentist's office, we can perform dental bonding and contouring for patients who want to change the appearance of a flawed tooth, or several flawed teeth. Because this work does not rely on the placement of restorations for results, it can deliver improvements while minimizing changes to your tooth structure. Read more

How likely are you to consume at least one cup of coffee during your typical morning? Do you often rely on caffeine to help carry you through the day? These beverages can feel important to the start of your day, but they can become a concern for you if you are starting to notice a change in the color of your smile. Coffee, along with tea, red wine, soda, and other dark or color-rich beverages, can leave particles on our teeth that lead to stains. Unfortunately, it can be hard to fully remove them once they have formed, even if you take home a whitening kit from your local store or pharmacy. At our Seattle, WA dentist's office, we are able to help you fight accumulated stains through a professional whitening treatment. We offer different approaches to this service, and can even provide a deep treatment thanks to the KöR teeth-whitening system. We should note that if you have discoloration due to another factor, it may be necessary to use an alternative cosmetic dental procedure. Read more

If you feel that your smile looks uneven, out of balance, or otherwise flawed due to poor symmetry, cosmetic dentistry can help!
