Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that specializes in improving the appearance of your smile and preserving your long-term oral health. This includes many dental treatments that can improve the color, position, shape, size, and overall appearance of the teeth in your smile.

Here at Scott M. Healey Dentistry, our dental team is highly trained and experienced in a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments. The specific nature of the imperfections on your smile will largely determine which method your dentist, Dr. Scott Healey, recommends for you.

If the teeth in your smile are stained, your dentist might recommend specific whitening products or treatments. One of the most effective treatments is the dental bleaching treatment. This will safely brighten your teeth to a bright, white luster.

Our dentist can also help you identify the underlying cause of the stains to prevent future issues. This often includes using whitening toothpaste or strips to maintain your white smile between dental cleanings.

Porcelain dental veneers are another cosmetic dentistry treatment that can improve teeth with small chips and stains. The porcelain veneers are custom crafted to fit over the face of the teeth in your smile. They can be shaded to match any color of enamel you would like for your smile.

If one or two teeth in your smile have visible imperfections, your dentist might recommend restoring all of the tooth enamel with a porcelain dental crown.

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, you should contact Scott M. Healey Dentistry at 801.653.0099 to explore your cosmetic dentistry options in Lindon, Utah.
