Cosmetic Dentistry Options


Cosmetic dentistry involves procedures and dental work that improves the appearance of teeth. Often times, dental work can also enhance the functionality of your teeth as well! Cosmetic dentists provide treatment options for teeth that are discolored, stained, worn, chipped, cracked, crooked, gapped, or missing.

The main goal of cosmetic dentistry is to help our patients feel more confident and comfortable with the appearance of their smiles. While there are several different services that fall under the term cosmetic dentistry, many of them are accomplished through different procedures. At Sunrise Dental, we have patients from all different demographics who are looking to either improve their teeth and oral appearance, or have discomfort that can be resolved by one of our cosmetic dentistry services. In each case, we carefully consult a potential patient, making sure to understand the issues they are experiencing with the condition of their teeth, as well as other parts of their oral hygiene. We then discuss different procedure options, and help each person decide on a plan that best fits their current position. This can include financial plans, any potential downtime requirements, and other aspects that can accompany having a cosmetic dentistry procedure.

From teeth whitening to brighten your smile, and creating full mouth dental implants, to providing affordable braces to correct crooked teeth, the cosmetic dentists at Sunrise Dental are here to help you. Our dental services are designed to improve the look and feel of your teeth, as well as boost your self-confidence! We can provide you with a variety of service options to solve any dental problems you may be having, including crown lengthening, denture implants, laser gum therapy, and porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are a great way to achieve the perfect smile. Our cosmetic dentistry office offers a type of minimal-preparation veneer called Lumineers. This type of veneer is a very thin piece of porcelain that is used to completely replace the surface of your tooth to create a more pleasing appearance. For optimal aesthetic results, porcelain veneers are made to complement the color and size of your surrounding natural teeth. They are comfortable and look completely natural — no one will know they aren’t your true teeth! A major advantage of porcelain veneers as a cosmetic dentistry option is their strength. When dental veneers are cemented to the front surfaces of the teeth, the porcelain material becomes extremely sturdy and resistant to damage. Additionally, veneers are highly resistant to staining from coffee, tobacco, and other staining agents. If you are interested in hiding chips, cracks, stains, discoloration, misshapen teeth, or minor alignment issues, porcelain veneers may be for you. If you are in the Cary, Durham, or Raleigh, NC area, our dentists can discuss this option with you.

Gum Reshaping / Gummy Smile Treatment

We can use laser technology to eliminate your overly gummy smile and revitalize your appearance. If you are discouraged by a smile that shows too much gum and very little teeth, we can help.

Our skilled dentists can remove the labial or lingual frenula for aesthetic or functionality purposes. The frenula, located inside the middle of the upper lip or under the tongue respectively, can cause problems with dentures and other dental appliances and procedures. We can remove this tissue to create better results.

Tooth Bonding     

This quick process allows us to fill in or cover chips, fractures, gaps, stains, or other smile imperfections. We will flow in a tooth-colored composite resin material, shape it, harden it with a special light, and then polish it to blend in with your natural smile. This is a quick way to eliminate flaws in your smile! Talk to one of our doctors about dental bonding today. If you are ready to schedule an appointment, you can find our phone numbers here.
