Be proud of your smile
Achieve Your Ideal Dream Smile
We are here to help you create your ideal, natural, and dream smile using the latest modern technologies and procedures.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic Dentistry goes beyond traditional restorative or therapeutic procedures like treating cavities or gum disease. Rather, these aesthetic solutions focus on enhancing the overall appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. While general dentistry primarily focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating functional dental issues, cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. It’s about creating harmony between your bite, facial features, and personality, resulting in a naturally beautiful and confident smile.
Sometimes it’s possible to blend cosmetic approaches to care with traditional dental treatments, such as white fillings or crowns. These treatments serve a dual role rather than only addressing aesthetics.
Why Get a Smile Makeover?
Investing in your smile is a priceless experience that affects both your personal life and career. In fact, some studies have shown that people with gorgeous teeth tend to do better at job interviews, including being offered higher salaries. When you feel happier about the way your teeth look, you’re more likely to smile, laugh, and feel a bit more outgoing around other people, which can make a good first impression.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
One of the cornerstones of complete smile makeovers is dental veneers. These thin, custom-made porcelain restorations are crafted from high-quality materials and are designed to cover the front surface of your most noticeable teeth. Whether you have discolored, chipped, misaligned, or unevenly spaced teeth, veneers can transform your smile by providing a durable and natural-looking facing over your healthy teeth. At Brentwood Dental Art, we take pride in our precise veneer application, ensuring that your smile not only looks great but also maintains its functionality.
In most cases, we recommend placing at least six veneers across your upper front teeth to recreate the overall appearance of your smile. Depending on how wide your smile is, you may need up to 8-10 dental veneers across your upper teeth.
Years of consuming coffee, tea, tomato sauce, red wine, or other stain-causing foods and drinks can gradually dim the brilliance of your healthy smile. Teeth whitening, offered at Brentwood Dental Art, is a safe and effective way to restore the whiteness of your teeth and even take it to the next level. Our professional-grade treatments can lighten your teeth by several shades, leaving you with a radiant smile that exudes vitality and youthfulness.
Professional teeth whitening is a great first step to any smile makeover, as it creates a brighter template to work with and match new dental work against. You might even find that whitening your teeth is the only cosmetic treatment that you need!
Symmetry is the key element of beautiful teeth. But when just one or two teeth are misshaped or asymmetrical, you usually don’t need a full set of dental veneers. Instead, modest composite bonding is an excellent choice.
If you’re dealing with minor imperfections such as small chips, cracks, or mild gaps between your teeth, composite bonding quickly covers the area to make your tooth appear whole. This non-invasive procedure involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin to your teeth, effectively repairing and reshaping them in just one appointment. The result is a seamless smile that blends naturally with your existing teeth, enhancing your overall appearance.
Tooth and Gum Recontouring
A balanced smile isn’t just about teeth; it’s also about the harmony between your teeth and gumlines. Uneven gums or excessive gum tissue (aka a “gummy smile”) can affect the aesthetics of your smile. Tooth and gum recontouring involves gently reshaping the gums and smoothing out certain teeth to create a more harmonious and proportional smile. This procedure is minimally invasive and can lead to a dramatically improved appearance in as little as one appointment.
Cosmetic Restorations (Crowns and Fillings)
Cosmetic Dentistry isn’t solely focused on aesthetics; it’s about restoring the health and function of your teeth while enhancing their appearance. Dental crowns and fillings, for instance, are restorative treatments that can also be shaped and colored in such a way that they improve the appearance of damaged teeth. Crowns cover teeth with significant structural damage, providing strength and protection while maintaining a natural appearance. Fillings, on the other hand, are used to repair smaller areas of decay, ensuring that your smile remains as beautiful as it is healthy. Our Brentwood dentist uses tooth-colored materials that blend in with your adjacent teeth for natural-looking results.

The beauty of Cosmetic Dentistry is that it’s accessible to a wide range of individuals. If you’re unhappy with any aspect of your smile – whether it’s the color, shape, alignment, or overall appearance of your teeth – you may be an excellent candidate for cosmetic dental treatment.
