More About

Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile is one of the most important facial features that people notice. It is the first impression you make when meeting a person for the first time. However, some people feel self-conscious about their smile, whether it is due to crooked, discolored, or missing teeth. Fortunately, there are various solutions to help bring confidence back into your life through cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is the art of improving the appearance of your smile. At Parleys Creek Dental, our dentist, Dr. Clinton Sorensen, is cosmetic-focused, ready to help anyone looking to improve their smiles with cosmetic dentistry in Salt Lake City, Utah.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is dental work that aims to improve the aesthetics of your teeth, gums, and bites. It encompasses a range of procedures that vary from minor tweaks to significant changes. Common cosmetic dentistry procedures include teeth whitening, dental bonding, veneers, dental implants, and orthodontic treatments like Invisalign. These procedures are non-invasive or minimally invasive compared to traditional dentistry.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

The benefits of cosmetic dentistry are significant and go beyond just improving your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your smile by fixing any cracks or breaks in your smile and whitening your smile. By improving the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, leading to better overall mental health. 

Cosmetic dentistry can also improve your oral hygiene, bite, and speech. With improvements in your smile by fixing breaks, chips, and missing teeth, you can eat and speak normally again. 

It can help correct uneven or misaligned teeth, reducing the risk of tooth decay, inflammation, and other gum diseases.

Cosmetic dentistry can enhance your professional and social life, making you feel more confident and successful.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

We provide a variety of cosmetic procedures to help improve your smile. Many of these procedures vary between non-invasive to slightly more invasive, depending on what you want to do to improve the appearance of your smile. Procedures we offer at our office include:

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a common cosmetic procedure done at home or by Dr. Clinton Sorensen. Professional teeth whitening can take less than an hour and significantly affect your smile. We also provide teeth whitening that you can take home.
Dental Bonding
Dental bonding involves the application of a resin material to fix chipped teeth, fill gaps, or reshape teeth.
Porcelain Crowns
Dental crowns are a procedure that focuses on replacing a damaged or decayed tooth. Your damaged tooth is prepped, and a crown is placed over it, restoring function to your smile and appearance. Porcelain crowns restore your smile while looking and feeling like your natural teeth.
Tooth-Colored Fillings
Dental fillings involve filling up a small hole, typically a cavity, sealing the infection. Fillings will generally consist of different colors, like gold or silver, making them easy to see. However, tooth-colored fillings look and feel just like your natural teeth.
Dental Veneers
Veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure that involves placing a wafer-thin shell on the front of the tooth to improve its appearance.
Dental Implants
Dental implants are surgical procedures in which an artificial tooth root is inserted into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth permanently.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to shift teeth gradually. Invisalign is an excellent choice for those looking to straighten their smiles with full discreetness compared to traditional metal braces.
