Cosmetic Enhancement Q & A

What are some common cosmetic dental enhancements?

As a periodontist and implant specialist, Dr. Sethi offers an array of cosmetic dental enhancements to improve the look and function of your smile. Some common procedures she offers are:

Crown lengthening

Do large gums make your teeth look small? Dr. Sethi can fix a “gummy smile” with a crown lengthening procedure that pushes back or cuts away excess gum tissue, revealing more of your natural teeth.

Teeth whitening

Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, in-office whitening treatments offer more dramatic results in less time. Dr. Sethi can help you achieve your desired shade safely and easily.

Dental implants

A missing tooth can affect the look of your entire smile, but implants can help. Dr. Sethi can replace a missing tooth with an artificial one using durable materials that bond to your jawbone. Results are natural and flawless.

Veneers or Lumineers®

Dr. Sethi uses veneers or Lumineers to fix chips, cracks, or jagged teeth. These are thin, shell-like coverings that fit snugly over the front of your natural tooth and are undetectable to the naked eye.

How do I get a cosmetic dental enhancement?

Most cosmetic dental enhancements are fast and easy procedures.

First, you meet with Dr. Sethi for a full oral examination and to discuss your treatment goals. You generally need good dental health before moving forward with a cosmetic enhancement. Such enhancements might include a full cleaning or other restorative work before the cosmetic treatment.

Your appointment time varies, depending on which enhancement you choose. Dr. Sethi and her team make every effort to ensure the process is fast, comfortable, and convenient.

What results can I expect from a cosmetic dental enhancement?

Most people have specific goals in mind when it comes to improving their smile. It’s important to discuss your desires with Dr. Sethi to make sure she can help you achieve the best outcome.

Cosmetic dental enhancements can provide numerous benefits, including:

  • More symmetry in your smile
  • Whiter teeth
  • Better structural support for your gums and teeth
  • Elimination of gaps, cracks, or chips
  • Improved gum line
