Being dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth can cause significant distress, even if the flaws are minor. The good news is that your perfect smile may be closer than you think. Your cosmetic dentist has a range of treatments at their disposal to help you feel better about your appearance with every smile.
Cosmetic dentistry options range from full smile makeovers to minor alterations. Your dentist will help determine the best treatment or combination of treatments to help you reach your specific goals.
Bonding: A simple cosmetic procedure that can deliver significant improvements to your smile. A tooth-colored composite material is applied to cover gaps, uneven surfaces, stains, cracks, or oddly shaped teeth.
Whitening: One of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures. A peroxide-based bleaching agent is applied to the teeth, lifting out stains to lighten the shade of the enamel.
Contouring: Sanding instruments are used to remove small amounts of enamel, changing the shape of the teeth. This procedure can remove slight overlaps, uneven surfaces, or jagged edges.
Veneers: Custom-made porcelain or ceramic shells are permanently bonded to your natural teeth. Veneers can give your front teeth a complete makeover--delivering whiter, straighter, and more evenly shaped teeth.
Crowns: A crown is a permanent covering that can strengthen a weak or damaged tooth while improving its appearance. Front teeth can be covered with porcelain or ceramic crowns to match the color of natural teeth.
Dentures: When you're missing a full arch of teeth or several adjacent teeth, a full or partial denture can restore the appearance of your smile. Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth and provide an aesthetically pleasing shape and color.

Do you have internal dental stains? Teeth whitening might not be able to help but dental veneers can!
Those with external stains caused by smoking and eating certain foods can often benefit from getting professional teeth whitening from their Reno dentist Dr. George Zatarain. Unfortunately, those with internal stains won’t get the same results from our in-office whitening system. But this doesn’t mean you should lose heart. We have another non-invasive way to give you a whiter smile painlessly. Find out how dental veneers can help!
About Dental Veneers
Are you looking for a way to hide any of these dental issues?
- Severe internal stains and discolorations
- Cracks and chips
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Spaces between teeth
If so, then you’ve come to the right place, because dental veneers can certainly help. These seriously thin porcelain shells may not look like much, but when they are applied to the front of your teeth they instantly hide any trace of those dental flaws. Plus, since veneers are translucent, they offer the same look as natural tooth enamel.
Dental veneers are an easy way to get the brighter and straighter smile you’ve always wanted.
Getting Dental Veneers
The procedure is fairly simple, and requires only minimal tooth prep. Before impressions are taken of your teeth, we will shave down a little bit of your enamel to make room for the added volume of the veneers. Impressions of your teeth will then be taken and sent to a lab, where they will make your veneers. The final visit will involve fitting and adjusting your new veneers to give you the perfect smile. Once you’ve approved your look, we will apply special resin to your teeth and the veneers, which we will then harden to your teeth using a dental laser. It’s that simple!
