The Benefits of Cosmetic Treatment
Cosmetic dentistry has a wide range of benefits. The biggest benefit is, of course, a beautiful smile. You can reverse almost any cosmetic problem with your smile, ranging from gaps in your teeth to stained teeth, chipped teeth, misshapen and uneven teeth, and much more.
Once your smile has been restored by cosmetic dentistry, you’ll feel better about how you look, and you won’t feel self-conscious or embarrassed when you smile, speak, eat or laugh in public. With proper care after cosmetic treatment, you can take pride in your appearance once again.
Cosmetic dentistry also helps you look younger. Premature staining and tooth damage can make you look older than you really are, so treating these issues can help rejuvenate your appearance.
In some cases, cosmetic treatment can even lead to better oral health. A straight, even smile is easier to brush and floss properly, and patients who have invested in cosmetic treatments tend to take better care of their smiles.
How Much Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?
This depends on the procedures you’re interested in, your oral health, and a number of other factors. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to provide you with an accurate estimate without more information about your case.
In addition, some treatments are more expensive than others. Teeth whitening and dental bonding, for example, are relatively cheap compared to other treatments like porcelain veneers, so you can choose the option that’s right for your budget.

Will Cosmetic Dentistry Damage My Teeth?
No. This is a common misconception, and it’s primarily based on a misunderstanding about dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are built to look like natural teeth. They are designed to fit over your teeth and cover up the front teeth, which can provide you with a beautiful, perfect smile.
However, to make room for veneers, a small amount of your natural enamel must be removed. Usually, the layer of enamel that is removed is only about 0.5mm thick. Removing this natural tooth material is essential for ensuring the veneers attach to your teeth properly, and look and feel natural.
This process is not reversible. The enamel that has been removed can’t be replaced. However, your dental veneers will strengthen your teeth and make them just as durable and strong as they were before you had veneers applied. Your teeth will not be damaged at all. In fact, veneers can often make your teeth stronger after they’re applied.
If the idea of permanently removing some of your enamel for veneers does not sound appealing to you, alternative treatments like dental bonding may be a good choice. Dental bonding does not require the removal of any enamel, but it can still reshape and restore your smile in a way that’s very similar to veneers.
This is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments in America because it is convenient, affordable, and the results are beautiful. At Oak Creek Dental Care, we offer custom take-home whitening trays for patients who want to brighten their smile in the comfort of their own home. These custom trays ensure that professional-grade bleaching agents brighten your smile evenly, without causing damage to your surrounding gum line. The gradual results keep your smile looking natural as it brightens up to 10 shades whiter.
bonding, shaping & contouring
Do you have chipped or discolored teeth? Would you like to correct misaligned teeth and fill in small gaps? Dental bonding, shaping, and contouring can repair these cosmetic issues with quick, minimally invasive treatment. During the procedure, Dr. Saleki will remove a small amount of tooth enamel before applying a puttylike resin to your teeth. The resin adheres to your teeth and hardens as Dr. Saleki molds the resin into the desired shape. The resin is painted to match or improve the color of your teeth, so you’ll leave our office with a refreshed smile that looks and feels completely natural.
This treatment requires no surgery, and the minimally invasive procedure can correct a wide range of cosmetic imperfections. Whether your teeth are stained, chipped, misshapen, gapped, or slightly crooked, veneers can cover minor issues and offer beautiful new smiles. Veneers are wafer thin “shells” that are custom-made to fit perfectly over your existing teeth. They look completely natural, and the procedure typically only takes two appointments.
botox & fillers
As a dentist, Dr. Saleki is specifically trained to treat oral and maxillofacial areas (the facial area, from chin to forehead). This means that he is highly qualified to administer botox and fillers for patients who want a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing smile. Botox relaxes the muscles in your face to minimize wrinkles. It can also relieve tension, headaches, and TMJ/TMD symptoms. Fillers place collagen into specific areas of the face and lips to fill in wrinkles and add volume to the skin, creating a beautiful frame for your confident smile.
