A cosmetic dental procedure can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth and gums and your smile's aesthetics. Popular cosmetic dental procedures include bonding, veneers, crowns, teeth whitening, and gum contouring.
At Homan Family Dentistry, these are treatments designed to improve a patient’s smile and oral health. A chipped tooth can be unattractive and increase the risk of decay. Fillings restore the function and appearance of teeth damaged by tooth decay. Veneers are used to cover a tooth that is discolored or unusually shaped. These are just a few cosmetic dental procedures we offer at our practice.

Types of Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Dental implants are replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They are attached to your jaw through an artificial tooth root. The artificial tooth root fuses with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This process is what gives dental implants their strong foundation and durable quality. Dental implants can be an excellent long-term solution for patients with missing teeth.
If you are looking for a simple yet effective way to completely transform your smile, one of the best ways to achieve this is professional teeth whitening. This simple procedure can give you a whiter smile, up to eight shades lighter than your current shade, in just one visit! Professional treatments are the way to go if you want a brighter smile without worrying about the side effects or the hassle of over-the-counter products.
Chipped, cracked, broken, and discolored teeth can all be remedied using porcelain veneers. These thin shells of tooth-colored material are bonded to the front surfaces of the affected teeth to mask imperfections and give patients a beautiful, symmetrical smile.
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments in dentistry is dental bonding. Dental bonding involves carefully applying tooth-colored composite resin to repair areas of teeth that are chipped or cracked, as well as to fill in gaps and reshape teeth.
This treatment can be completed in a single visit and involves removing a small amount of enamel from the tooth's surface before applying the composite material to reshape the tooth. The composite material is then shaped and polished to achieve the desired results. Because it is made from a material that matches the look and feel of natural tooth enamel, this restoration blends in beautifully with your natural smile and is virtually invisible.
