With our expertise, advanced technology and knowledge, we can help you visualize and attain the beautiful smile you want. Using one procedure, such as veneers, or perhaps a combination of procedures, we can transform your smile and help you have the confidence that comes with knowing your smile looks great! Procedures used alone or in combination to create beautiful smiles include:
Teeth will naturally lose their brightness over time. Drinking coffee or tea, or using tobacco, as well as certain childhood medications can cause teeth to discolor or darken even faster than normal.
Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth. There are two different ways to achieve a desired whiter smile: In-Office Bleaching and At-Home Bleaching.
This in-office whitening treatment uses a laser to facilitate the whitening process and allows the dentist to customize aspects of the treatment to the patients needs.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact tooth movements our office plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know that you’re straightening your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural appearance of teeth. To place a veneer, a thin layer of the original tooth enamel must be removed. Afterward, an adhesive layer is placed between the prepared tooth and the veneer. The adhesive is then hardened with the use of a specialized curing light.
Cosmetic bonding is the process of filling or restoring teeth with a tooth-colored material in order to improve a tooth’s appearance. In order to bond a tooth, composite material is added to the tooth structure to adjust the size, shape, or color of the existing tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening
What does cosmetic dentistry include?
Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on the appearance of your smile, while still maintaining the function, strength, or health of your teeth. That said, there are a number of dental procedures that have both cosmetic and oral health benefits, including Invisalign, bonding, veneers, dental crowns, and implants.
What type of dentist can perform cosmetic dentistry?
The American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a dental specialty, which means any dentist can perform cosmetic dentistry. This is why it’s important to make sure you’re seeing a dentist who has advanced training and experience in performing this type of service. At Imperial Dental Associates, we’re known for our attention to detail and extended expertise in cosmetic dentistry.
Can dentists perform Botox?
Yes, dentists are an excellent choice for Botox injections, as we have in-depth knowledge of facial structures and anatomy. Dr. Dean offers basic Botox services at our practice.
What is the best cosmetic dental procedure?
There’s no single cosmetic dental procedure that can be considered the best. Cosmetic dentistry is a personalized treatment, so what’s best for one person might not be best for another. We will work with you to determine the best cosmetic procedures to help you achieve your desired smile.
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses all of the concerns you have with your teeth and gums. Usually, these plans involve multiple cosmetic and restorative treatments, and they may take several office visits to complete. The result is a renewed sense of self-confidence and a beautiful new smile.
How much does a smile makeover cost?
Because smile makeovers are extremely personalized, it’s difficult to provide a ballpark figure for what they cost, as this depends on the treatments you need and whether your dental insurance will cover any of them. During your consultation, we can determine the costs involved and figure out how to maximize any benefits you may have with your insurance.
