Cosmetic Services

Many people who are unhappy with the look of their smile do not realize the numerous ways cosmetic care can help. Correct crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth, stained or discolored teeth or a “gummy” smile with cosmetic treatments from The Dental Shoppe. Your dentist will customize a treatment plan for you based on your age, goals and financial comfort level.

Porcelain Veneers

Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile with porcelain veneers! This conservative cosmetic treatment makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have crooked teeth, chipped teeth, gaps in teeth or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution. Your dentist will skillfully create a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance.

Teeth Whitening – At Home with Nu Radiance®

You can have the confidence that comes from a bright, white smile. If you are happy with the alignment and spacing of your teeth, a dentist supervised teeth whitening procedure may be all that separates you from a dazzling smile.

Nu Radiance ® is an advanced, fast acting, sensitivity-free formula. Your home whitening kit involves a special tray that is customized to fit over your teeth, to evenly disperse prescription whitening gel, which is inserted into the tray before you wear it.  You can expect to see results in just five to eight days, leaving you with a whiter, brighter smile.

If you are thinking of other cosmetic improvements, such as crowns, porcelain veneers or replacing old discolored fillings, consider whitening your teeth first. Any future restorations will be matched to your whitened teeth, giving you outstanding results. Ask your dentist about Nu Radiance® whitening today.

Porcelain Bridges

If you’ve lost a tooth, a large gap in your smile is more than an eyesore; it can create significant problems for your dental health if left uncorrected. Gradually, your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to chew efficiently. Then, neighboring teeth may begin to move into the gap, resulting in discomfort and pain.  After some preparation of the two neighboring teeth, your dentist creates crowns for them, then fuses a prosthetic tooth between them.  This device literally “bridges the gap” in your smile. Porcelain bridges blend in seamlessly with your smile for a beautiful restoration.

Porcelain Crowns

With a porcelain crown from The Dental Shoppe, you can erase years of wear and tear. Using a tooth-like crown made of porcelain, your dentist can restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in both shape and color.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If you’re embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured or discolored teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. Once the decay has been taken out of the tooth, your dentist replaces it with “filling” material. Silver fillings were the standard for years, but with new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a bright, white smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger, more discreet restoration.


Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by your Dental Shoppe dentist to resemble a natural tooth, correcting chips, broken, stained or discolored teeth, and in some cases, correcting gaps.

Gum Contouring

Are you unhappy with your “gummy” smile? If so, you may be a candidate for cosmetic contouring of your gum tissue. Your Dental Shoppe dentist can give you a more aesthetic appearance when you smile by shaping and sculpting your gums. Enjoy a more beautiful smile and minimal recovery time.
