Cosmetic dentistry is care that focuses on improving the appearance of your mouth, teeth and smile. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are usually elective, but in some cases, they can provide restorative benefits.
The most common procedures used in cosmetic dentistry are simple. But there are some that are more complex and require specialized care.
Cosmetic bonding refers to the repair of decayed, damaged or discolored teeth. This uses material that resembles the color of tooth enamel. We will carefully remove the tooth decay and apply the composite or bonding material onto the tooth’s surface. We then sculpt it into the right shape before curing it with a high-intensity light. This covers the damage to the tooth and gives the appearance of a healthy tooth in its place. Bonding is one of the least expensive procedures available to patients with tooth decay.
Over the years, teeth become stained and worn from food, drinks, medication and personal habits such as smoking. We perform teeth whitening at Brightworks. Whitening should occur after plaque, tartar and other debris are cleaned from the surface of each tooth. Teeth can be whitened to achieve an even lighter shade than their original color.
Botox is a prescription injection that is used to temporarily improve the severity and pain from headaches and TMJ muscle problems while also improving the appearance of wrinkles around the face.
Botox treatment can last 3-4 months.

Dermal fillers, also known as injectables, are used in helping to create a smoother appearance in the face. They can be used around the mouth, cheeks and lips for increasing volume.
Invisalign aligners are the clear alternative to metal braces for adults and teens. These clear aligners are virtually the invisible way to improve your smile.
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic — specifically, a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack® created exclusively for Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign clear aligners are FDA-approved and contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. They are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
We will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. We will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.
Unlike other brands, Invisalign clear aligners are made from patented SmartTrack material, which is more comfortable and provides a better fit. Invisalign aligners are also trimmed based on your gum line for comfort and appearance. As the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, they have successfully improved over 5 million smiles.
