Glendale Cosmetic Dentist Discusses 3 Popular Aesthetic Treatments In Our Office

Written by Dr. McKay on Mar 28, 2017

Our Glendale cosmetic dentists understand that the appearance of our smile can make a huge difference to how you feel and move through the world day to day. We know that aesthetic concerns are not superficial or petty—you deserve to feel good about your smile!

Today we are reviewing three popular cosmetic dentistry treatments that we use in our office. Keep in mind that, in our office, we only pursue cosmetic treatment that is also healthy for you and supportive of your overall dental structure; we never undermine oral health in order to achieve a visual result.

Professional dental whitening

This is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to refresh the appearance of your smile. Many of us find that our teeth begin to look dark, dull, or stained as time goes on; the good news is that our teeth don’t need to stay that way. During professional whitening treatment, our dentist applies a potent whitening gel to your enamel; this enamel then goes to work minimizing stains. Some patients are able to lighten their teeth by as many as 8 shades after one session.


If you want to improve the alignment of your natural teeth, Invisalign orthodontic treatment may be what you’re looking for. Like traditional braces, Invisalign moves your teeth—closing gaps in your smile, straightening crooked alignment, improving bite surfaces, and more. However, Invisalign moves teeth using clear plastic aligners, rather than metal brackets and wires.


Yet another way that you can transform your smile is by resurfacing your teeth with porcelain LUMINEERS. A LUMINEER is a thin, customized aesthetic restoration that, once applied to the natural tooth, completely changes the appearance of the tooth. With LUMINEERS you are able to make your smile look white and bright, straight, perfected, and damage-free.

As always, our Glendale cosmetic dentists are here to give you any additional information that you may need about dental treatment in general, and aesthetic treatment in particular. Give us a call to get started!
