Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Consider for Your Smile

Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Consider for Your Smile

Your dentist is an excellent resource for your oral health, but he can also help you discover cosmetic procedures that will give you the sparking and beautiful smile you deserve. There is a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures available, and many of them can be completed in a single visit to the dentist’s office. Below, you will find an introduction to some of the most popular procedures that might be right for your unique smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain is an excellent material for cosmetic tooth enhancements, because it is durable, stain-proof, and easily customizable. Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped overlays that bond directly to the surface of the teeth to correct poor tooth spacing, discoloration of the enamel, or chipped teeth. One or several veneers may be needed to achieve the effects you are looking for in your treatment.


Dental crowns are used to cap dental implants, preserve the structure of a broken tooth, or complete a root canal procedure. In the past, the dental crown procedure took several office visits to complete, but now most dental crown treatments can be completed using CEREC same-day restoration technology. CEREC uses digital tooth impressions to create custom tooth restorations made from versatile, beautiful porcelain that will blend seamlessly into your smile.


If you have crooked teeth, a misaligned bite, or gaps between the teeth, you may have chronic oral health issues in addition to aesthetic dissatisfaction with your smile. Invisalign can correct these problems without the discomfort of unattractive metal brackets and wires so that you can undergo orthodontic treatment at any age.

To see if you are a candidate for these and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, contact Dr. John Carson, DDS today by calling (520) 514-7203. Dr. Carson offers a wide range of dental services to Tucson residents, from general cleanings and checkups to advanced and complex procedures such as dental implants.
