Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry is a very large category. Any procedure from restoration (fillings ), dentures, crowns and bridges, extractions, surgery to implants can be considered cosmetic dentistry. Below we will discuss two of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry. 

Teeth Whitening:  Teeth whitening is one example of a common cosmetic procedure. It's simple and safe and all it takes is the fabrication of plastic custom trays and using a special whitening gel for a couple of weeks. patients love the results. Come in for a consultation and get as much information as you need and ask our team members about this procedure. 
Veneers or Bonding:  This procedure consists of covering the front surface of the tooth and can be used to cover front teeth that are discolored, crowded, spaced, fractured or un-proportional. This is a very successful procedure and very predictable in terms of success and patient satisfaction. Veneers can be done at the lab in porcelain material or at the office in white filling material. Dr. Ibrahim will discuss your options with you and will give you an idea about time involvement and cost for each procedure.
