Smile Makeover

A smile makeover isn’t a single procedure; it is an umbrella term for any combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures designed to improve the appearance of your smile. Since no two smiles are exactly alike, your smile makeover will be specially customized just for you.

Your smile makeover can address a broad range of cosmetic dental issues and improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Missing
  • Gapped
  • Unevenly spaced
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Severely worn
  • Misshapen
  • Stained or discolored

Of course, your smile includes more than just your teeth. Our cosmetic dentist can also correct gummy smiles and uneven gum lines. Dr. Cornehl will work closely with you to develop a tailored plan that addresses all of your unique needs.

Teeth Whitening

A bright, dazzling smile can help make a better impression and help you feel more confident in social and professional interactions. At the DENTAL STUDIO, we off a variety of teeth whitening options to help you get the sparkling smile you deserve. We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options to make your teeth whitening experience convenient to your schedule and lifestyle.

When conducted under the supervision of a cosmetic dentist, teeth whitening is safer and more effective compared to over-the-counter alternatives at your local drugstore.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an effective method of augmenting, reshaping or rebuilding a certain area of a tooth. Dental bonding can be used to treat:

  • Minor problems with tooth shape
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth that require temporary restoration while waiting for a crown or veneer

The process in which bonding is placed is quick and simple. In just one visit with Dr. Cornehl, he can place the material on your tooth and shape it to look natural and beautiful. Once the bonding hardens, your results can last for years.

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin, durable porcelain covering that is bonded to the front of your natural tooth to conceal flaws and create a stunning smile. They are a highly versatile solution for correcting an array of dental problems, such as:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Certain spacing issues
  • Stains and discoloration
  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth

Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining, cracking and breaking. With proper care, they can last for decades. Dr. Cornehl will customize your veneers to capture the aesthetic quality you desire.

Gum Contouring

Ideally, your gums should frame your teeth evenly. If your gums are uneven or if there is too much gum tissue, known as a gummy smile, it can create an unwanted imbalance in your smile and make your teeth appear short or small. Using advanced laser technology, Dr. Cornehl can precisely recontour your gums to give them a natural, pleasing appearance.

The process is completely safe and comfortable. In just one appointment, Dr. Cornehl can give you an even, consistent gum line and a healthy-looking smile.

The DENTAL STUDIO also offers BOTOX® Cosmetic to treat over-exposure of the gums and other cosmetic and oral health issues.

Invisalign

If you would like to undergo orthodontic treatment but shudder at the idea of traditional braces and the appearance of a “metal mouth,” Invisalign may be an ideal solution. The Invisalign system utilizes a customized series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into optimal position.

Invisalign offers a number of advantages over conventional metal braces, including:

  • No one will notice: The clear plastic aligners are virtually unnoticeable to others.
  • Comfortable fit: The smooth, form-fitting plastic material used for your aligners is molded to the unique contours of your mouth, making for a comfortable treatment process.
  • Removable aligners: You can still enjoy all of the foods you love. Your aligners can be removed when you are eating and brushing your teeth.
  • Customizable treatment: Your aligners are made just for you to address your individual needs.
  • Less time in the dentist’s chair: Invisalign requires fewer dental appointments than traditional braces: about one every six weeks.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

In the event of tooth decay, fillings are commonly placed to restore tooth function. In the past, fillings were usually only gold or silver (amalgam). Today, tooth-colored fillings have become the most sought-after choice for filling cavities.

Tooth-colored fillings consist of composite resins and porcelains. They are designed to mimic the way your natural tooth looks and feels. You can enjoy healthy, functional teeth without the worry of exposing metal fillings every time you smile.

Tooth-colored fillings offer a variety of benefits, because they:

  • Don’t require the removal of healthy tooth structure
  • Strengthen and stabilize your decaying tooth
  • Have been proven to be effective and safe through scientific studies and clinical research
  • Are comfortable for your tooth and your bite
  • Are matched to your surrounding teeth
  • Bond directly to your tooth
  • Mimic the translucency and shape of your enamel and dentin

Preview Your Future Smile

At the DENTAL STUDIO, you can see what your new smile will look before you even start treatment. With advanced digital imaging, we can input a picture of your current smile, add the cosmetic alterations from your chosen treatment and, within an hour, show you what your future smile will look like. This will help both you and Dr. Cornehl feel confident that you will love your results.

Feel confident and look great with a new smile

For some procedures, such as porcelain veneers, we offer chair side mockups: physical models of your veneers that actually fit into your mouth. This allows you to simply glance in a mirror to see what you will soon look like. This is also a great way to preview your smile for other people. This process does take more time than our digital imaging option.

Questions to Ask Your Cosmetic Dentist

Your initial consultation with Dr. Cornehl is an opportunity to meet personally with your cosmetic dentist to discuss what you do and don’t like about your smile and learn about the options available to help you get the smile of your dreams. It is also our chance to learn about you, your goals and the state of your oral condition.

For your cosmetic dentistry consultation, it’s a good idea to come prepared with some thoughts about what you’d like to accomplish with your smile and some questions you’d like to ask Dr. Cornehl.

Questions you may consider asking:

  • What treatment or procedure would you recommend for me? What are the advantages of those recommendations?
  • Are there alternatives to the recommended treatment? What are the pros and cons of the alternative treatment?
  • What training do you have that will help you perform my procedure?
  • What ongoing training are you doing to keep in touch with advances in dentistry?
  • How much experience do you have performing this procedure?
  • Can I see before and after images of cases like mine?
  • Can I talk to some previous patients?
  • What complications have you seen in previous treatments and how did you handle them?
  • How long can I expect my results to last? What do I have to do to maintain them?
  • If I am unhappy with my results, what will you do?
