Cosmetic Dentistry at Advanced Total Dental Care
Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the look of your teeth and gums and how your bite works. Our cosmetic dental services aim to help our patients achieve a beautiful smile that looks great and helps them feel more confident. Continue reading to learn about the dental services that we offer.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that a dentist can use to replace missing teeth. They provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like real teeth. We can offer beautiful dental implant prosthetics using modern dental software and high-quality materials.
Dentists have been using dental implants for over 60 years, and they are now one of the most successful dental treatments to replace a single missing tooth or many missing teeth. The treatment plan to get a dental implant can be rather long, but it is well worth it for most patients. To learn more about our dental implant procedure, see Dental Implants.
Inlays and Onlays
Our dentist can restore damaged teeth using inlays and onlays instead of dental crowns and fillings. Decay, erosion, or trauma causes damage to teeth. An inlay or an onlay can repair damage that is not significant enough for a dental crown.
Inlays can replace the outer layer of the tooth, known as the enamel. Onlays can replace the entire chewing surface of a tooth. To learn more about repairing teeth with inlays and onlays, see Inlays and Onlays.
When cavities damage teeth, our dentist typically uses a dental filling to restore them and alleviate sensitivity. Fillings protect the tooth from decay or fracture and restore its function. We provide cosmetic dental fillings that match your tooth’s color, so you won’t even know they’re there.
To learn more about getting a cosmetic tooth filling, see Dental Fillings.
Dentures and Partials
When you live with missing teeth, having a full set of dentures helps maintain the health of your mouth. Dentures can help with chewing and speaking so that you can enjoy a healthy diet and lifestyle. Not only can dentures protect the health of your mouth, but they also make you look younger and more attractive!
Cosmetic dentures are false teeth that our dentist provides to replace missing teeth. They can consist of metal, acrylic, or a combination of both. Dentures come in two types: full and partial dentures. Full dentures replace all the lost teeth on the top and bottom of your mouth. Partial dentures only replace some lost teeth on the top and/or bottom arch.
To learn more about getting dentures at our office, see Dentures and Partials.
Botox® & Dermal Fillers
Botox is a substance that a doctor uses to relax muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face. Botox is common in the medical field for aesthetic purposes, but it can also treat various dental health concerns such as TMJ disorder, chronic pain, and headaches.
Dermal fillers are a type of facial cosmetic that we can provide to correct wrinkles and folds on the skin. Fillers are similar to Botox but give your face more volume and make the skin look smoother.
To learn more about enhancing your facial aesthetics options, see Botox® & Dermal Fillers.
Tooth bonding is a dental procedure that can improve the look of discolored, chipped, or misaligned teeth. We can also use bonding to close gaps between your teeth. Our dentist uses tooth-colored composite material to fill the tooth’s natural gaps. We match the composite material to your teeth’s original color or create a more customized look.
To learn more about bonding teeth, see Tooth Bonding.
Porcelain veneers are thin tooth-colored shells of porcelain that Dr. Rever places on the front of your teeth. Veneers can correct many cosmetic dental issues, including worn-down teeth, chips, cracks, and gaps. However, a dentist will not replace them for dental fillings or other restorative treatments.
To learn more about treatment with porcelain veneers at our office, see Porcelain Veneers.
Teeth whitening is a treatment that you can do at the dentist office or in the comfort of your own home. In-office teeth whitening treatments are typically more expensive but have better results and are much safer. With the support of our dentist, you can rest easy knowing that you are getting quality treatment at a much lower risk to your dental health.
To learn more about our teeth whitening treatments, see Teeth Whitening.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that can help straighten your teeth without using bulky metal and wires. Over time, teeth shift due to the pressure of biting and chewing food. This can lead to teeth that are not lined up or overcrowded teeth, eventually leading to problems with eating, speaking, or tooth decay.
Invisalign is a clear, removable, and comfortable way to straighten teeth. We create a series of custom-made aligners using 3D imaging of your teeth. The aligners are transparent, so you can talk, smile, and eat comfortably. The process is quick and easy, with just one visit to the dentist every couple of weeks to adjust the next set of aligners.
To learn more about correcting crooked teeth with the original clear aligner system, see Invisalign®.
Similar to Invisalign, ClearCorrect is a company that makes orthodontic appliances and teeth aligners. ClearCorrect aligners consist of a high-quality, durable plastic material that fits only your teeth. They are comfortable and easy to wear. ClearCorrect aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into their new position. To learn more about straightening teeth using ClearCorrect aligners, see ClearCorrect®.
We want you to have a smile you are proud to show off. So, it’s key for patients to be active participants in their smile makeover process. Patient education is a key part of oral health care.
Patients need to be aware of the many treatment options available to them and their risks and benefits. Dr. Rever will review the steps involved in each procedure and what to expect during and after treatment. He will help patients feel more comfortable and confident about their dental care.
Dr. Rever will take the time to listen to your needs and goals. The more knowledge he can gather about your oral health, the better he can help you achieve your perfect smile. Before your visit, you should consider these questions:
- What do you like or dislike about the color, size, shape, and spacing of your teeth?
- Are you okay with how much your teeth show when you smile and relax your mouth?
- Do you want teeth that align perfectly? Or would you prefer a more realistic look with slight color, shape, and shade variations?
- Would you like more or less of your gums to show when you smile?
Once you have considered the questions above, you are ready for a smile makeover consultation. Dr. Rever will work with you to build a thorough treatment plan. First, he will listen to all of your cosmetic goals.
Then, he will consider your oral health history to develop the best plan to achieve your desired smile. We will work within your budget and never recommend needless treatments; only those you approve.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

If you chip a tooth, we recommend treatment to avoid the onset of decay or infection. In a single visit, we can repair a tooth with dental bonding. We can also restore a damaged tooth with a crown or natural-looking porcelain veneers.
What if my teeth are uneven?
If you have misalignment, you also have a higher risk of oral health issues. Issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. Fortunately, we can correct crooked teeth with clear aligners. Invisalign is comfortable to wear and almost invisible. ClearCorrect can provide the same results as Invisalign.
