Cosmetic Dentistry ProcedureHave you decided that it’s time to improve your smile? If so, then you may be considering your different cosmetic treatment options. Here in Franklin, KY, our dentist, Dr. David Fowler, offers a comprehensive range of treatments to cater to every patient’s smile goals. Read on to discover some of our most popular cosmetic treatment options and what they can do for you!

Teeth Whitening

Whitening or bleaching involves applying a special gel over the teeth to break up stain molecules and to achieve a whiter smile. While there are whitening kits that you can buy without seeing a dentist, these kits are formulated for your needs and often provide minimal results. Professional teeth whitening can often give you the results you want in as little as one whitening session.

You may be right for teeth whitening if,

  • You are dealing with yellow stains caused by aging, foods, drinks, or smoking
  • You have minimal dental work such as fillings and crowns (restorations can’t be whitened with professional whitening treatment)
  • You have healthy teeth and gums that are free of cavities and active gum disease
  • You want to get a visibly whiter smile quickly

Cosmetic Tooth Reshaping

Another simple way for our Franklin, KY, cosmetic dentist to improve a tooth’s appearance is through reshaping. This treatment involves shaving off small amounts of enamel from a tooth to alter its shape or size.

You may be right for tooth reshaping if,

  • You have an extremely pointy canine
  • You have an uneven or asymmetrical tooth
  • One tooth is longer than the rest

Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are adhered to the front of several teeth to completely makeover a smile that has experienced several widespread cosmetic flaws. You may be right for veneers if,

  • You want to alter the overall shape, size, color or alignment of your smile
  • You have imperfections that you want to cover across multiple teeth
  • You have healthy teeth that have enough enamel to support veneers
