Our Cosmetic Dental Services

Not only do cosmetic dental services focus on the aesthetic principles of smile design, they also address functional aspects of your teeth and gums. At Montane Dental Care, we combine science, artistry and the fundamentals of general dentistry to correct a broad array of conditions, giving you a smile that is healthy, functional and beautiful.

We pride ourselves on providing the most practical, innovative and long-lasting dental solutions available today.  If you are unhappy with some aspect of your smile, Dr. Montane offers a comprehensive suite of cosmetic dental services, including:

  • Porcelain veneers: One of the most effective and versatile dental solutions today, porcelain veneers are incredibly thin shells of dental porcelain that fit over the front surfaces of your teeth to conceal a number of cosmetic issues, such as chips, cracks and stains.
  • Dental implants: Missing teeth are perhaps the most obvious and challenging obstacles to a perfect smile. Dental implants are the most comprehensive way to address missing teeth because they not only replace the tooth, they replace the root. This provides long-lasting strength, stability and beauty while simultaneously preventing future bone loss and other issues related to missing teeth.
  • Teeth whitening: If you hide your teeth every time you laugh or smile because you are embarrassed by yellow, dingy teeth, our professional teeth whitening services can restore your bright, youthful smile as well as your self-confidence. Available in both in-office and take-home options, our tooth-whitening offerings can help you get a white smile you can be proud of.
  • Porcelain crowns and bridges: Whether you need to protect a weak tooth, replace an unattractive metal crown or need to address one or more missing teeth, porcelain crowns and bridges offer stability and life-like beauty.
  • Gum lift and contouring: Even if your smile is otherwise perfect, excessive gum tissue can create the appearance of a “gummy smile” and detract from your natural beauty. The gum lift and contouring services offered at Montane Dental Care can help your gums look more even and contoured, adding to the beauty of your smile rather than diminishing it.
  • Orthodontics: If your teeth are significantly crooked or misaligned, orthodontic treatment may be necessary. Dr. Montane proudly offers a variety of orthodontic options for patients of all ages.
  • Smile makeover: If you suffer from numerous cosmetic imperfections and fear that no single procedure can help you get the straight, white smile you desire, a complete smile makeover may be your ideal solution. Smile makeovers involve a variety of cosmetic dental procedures to help you get a stunning Hollywood smile.

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry

If you suffer from teeth that are slightly chipped, cracked gapped or discolored, dental bonding is a quick and affordable solution. Using a composite, putty-like resin that is matched to the color of your natural teeth, Dr. Montane gently applies multiple layers to your tooth’s enamel and sculpts a restoration that is both functional and natural-looking.

While effective, dental bonding is not as durable as other cosmetic dental solutions. During your initial consultation, Dr. Montane will assess your situation and discuss all of your options so that you can make an informed decision about which treatment is best suited to your goals, budget and lifestyle.

Common Dental Issues That Cosmetic Dentistry Can Address

Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. When you feel confident in your smile, you share it more. A proud, attractive smile can improve your self-esteem and help you be yourself in social and professional interactions. Likewise, when you are embarrassed by the appearance of your smile, it can make you feel less confident when meeting people and cause you to hide your smile or smile less.

Some common dental problems that can be successfully treated by our cosmetic dentist include:

  • Missing teeth: Teeth that have been knocked out or extracted can harm more than just your self-confidence. Diminished functionality in your bite can lead to long-term problems with both your oral and general health. When missing teeth go untreated, adjacent teeth begin to shift to fill the gap, and bone loss begins to occur in the jaw. Dental implants are the most effective and long-lasting ways to replace missing teeth.
  • Cracked or chipped teeth: Even small chips and cracks can diminish the beauty of your smile, especially when they appear on your front teeth. Dr. Montane can address these common imperfections with porcelain veneers or dental bonding, depending on your goals and budget.
  • Crooked teeth: Crooked teeth can detract from your smile’s beauty and contribute to a number of functional issues. Depending on the severity of your misalignment, either porcelain veneers (often referred to as “instant orthodontics”) Six-Month-Smiles or other orthodontic treatments can help to straighten your teeth and improve your bite.
  • Stained or discolored teeth: Teeth naturally darken over time. A lifetime of smoking or drinking tea, coffee or wine can leave your teeth looking dull and dingy. Professional teeth whitening services can help you get a whiter, brighter smile than with over-the-counter drug store kits.
  • Gummy smile: A disproportionate appearance of gum tissue can produce what is commonly known as a “gummy smile”. This condition can cause your teeth to look stubby and your entire smile to appear less than ideal. Laser gum therapy can help reduce the amount of visible gum tissue and give you a smile you can be proud to share.
