Before and After Cosmetic Dentistry.

How Cosmetic Dentistry Works

Cosmetic dentistry is all about improving your smile’s appearance, so the first step in the process is sitting down with Dr. Arhart and discussing what your dream smile is like. If you want to get rid of that chip in your tooth, make your smile a little whiter, or even make your teeth straighter, we’ll be able to put together the perfect treatment plan designed around what you want, to achieve that dream smile. During the initial examination, we will make sure that your cosmetic dental issues are not caused by any underlying dental disease, which would possibly need other dental treatment before starting with cosmetic work.

The great thing about cosmetic dentistry is that there are many types of treatment available that can correct a wide range of imperfections, so anyone can get that perfect smile. From powerful, professional whitening treatments to amazingly realistic porcelain veneers to state-of-the-art dental implants, there's a wide range of exciting possibilities.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

At the office of Dr. Arhart D.D.S., we are committed to providing the highest quality dental care, which is why we offer all of our patients a wide range of options for treatments.

What Do You Want Your Smile To Be Like?

The most important job you have as you start your smile makeover with us is to communicate exactly what you don't like about your smile and how you'd like it to be different. Before the first consultation, give some thought to the following questions:

  1. What do you like or dislike about the color, size, shape and spacing of your teeth?
  2. Are you pleased with how much your teeth show, both when you smile and when your lips are relaxed?
  3. Do you want teeth that are perfectly aligned and a bright “Hollywood White,” or would you prefer a more natural look with slight color, shape and shade variations?
  4. Would you like more or less of your gums to show when you smile?

If you come to your first appointment with us with these questions answered, we can get started on finding the perfect treatments for you faster so you can be on your way to that new, perfect smile. You can also bring in pictures, showing things about your smile that you don’t like, or even photos of how you wish your smile would look, to help us determine what results you’re looking for.
