Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialty area focused on improving the appearance of your teeth and smile. The Glen Dental Center team doesn't settle for less than perfection when improving your smile. Effective cosmetic dentistry not only improves your smile, but it also boosts your self-confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry services don’t typically affect the way your mouth works, but many men and women agree that the changes made to their smiles’ appearances are worthwhile. 

Your dentist gives you instructions on how to care for your smile and maintain its new look so you can minimize your need for further cosmetic treatments.

What are some popular cosmetic dentistry services?

The team at Glen Dental Center offers a variety of customizable cosmetic dentistry services to improve the appearance of your smile. Some of the more commonly requested treatments include the following.


Veneers are thin ceramic shells custom-made to fit your teeth precisely. They’re installed in just two appointments and cover a variety of imperfections, like chipped or misaligned teeth, gaps, and staining.

Teeth whitening

Glen Dental Center offers both at-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments. If you opt for in-office whitening, they use the Philips Zoom! teeth whitening process. This process takes about an hour and uses a special light-activated hydrogen peroxide gel to lift stains from your teeth, making them 6-10 shades whiter.

If you choose at-home whitening, the team provides custom-fit trays and a whitening gel that you wear at home for a few days. The at-home treatment can make your teeth 4-8 shades brighter.

Which cosmetic dentistry treatment would be right for me?

The team at Glen Dental Center offers thorough consultations where they examine your teeth and discuss your cosmetic dental concerns. They make suggestions for the treatments they believe will be most effective at improving your smile and answer your questions to help you make an informed choice.

If dental work makes you nervous but you still want to see an improvement, the consultation is also a time for you to ask questions and find out exactly what to expect during your procedure.
