Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on the aesthetics of your smile. The team at Karren Dental performs all treatments with an approach that considers the aesthetic outcomes. There is a lot of crossover between restorative and cosmetic services. 


For example, a crown is often used to give a cracked or weakened tooth additional structural support. However, crowns also improve the appearance of your smile and have a cosmetic benefit. All of their crown and bridges are esthetic ceramic restorations. 


Some examples of cosmetic dentistry procedures include:


  • Crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Bonding
  • Veneers
  • Teeth whitening


If you’re curious about the latest cosmetic dentistry options, come in for a personalized consultation to explore the options. 

How do I know which cosmetic dentistry options are right for me?

Don’t let the sheer volume of available options make you feel overwhelmed. When you visit the team at Karren Dental, you can rest assured you’ll receive the education and guidance needed to make an informed decision. 


During your initial consultation, Dr. Karren examines your teeth to determine if any restorative work needs to be completed prior to your cosmetic treatments. The office offers digital intraoral cameras and digital X-rays to help with imaging. 


Based on the results, you’ll learn more about the cosmetic options best suited for your specific set of needs. In many cases, a combination of treatments offers the best path. For example, you might benefit from teeth whitening as well as a crown to correct a misshapen tooth. 

What is professional teeth whitening?

Virtually every grocery and drugstore offers a range of products that promise to whiten your smile, but none of those options comes close to matching the power of professional teeth whitening. 


Karren Dental offers a medical-grade take-home whitening system that delivers outstanding results. 


You’ll be fitted for custom trays that fit snugly over the surface of your teeth. A syringe fills the trays with a powerful whitening solution. Dr. Karren explains when and how to wear your trays to blast apart stains and whiten your smile. 


Best of all, your trays are yours to keep. When you need to boost your smile after your initial whitening, just come in for a new syringe of whitening gel and extend your results at home. That makes professional whitening a great value as compared to single-use whitening strips. 


If you have questions about teeth whitening or any of the cosmetic dentistry options available from Karren Dental, simply call the office or spend a few moments on the online booking tool to set up a visit.
