Find out how cosmetic dentistry can take your smile to the next level!
Most people would agree that one of the first things you notice about someone is their smile. Apart from being aesthetically appealing to others, having a beautiful smile has profound effects on your self-confidence as well. Our cosmetic dental patients tell us that enhancing their smiles was one of the best investments that they made in themselves because of the self-confidence they achieved.
You may think that cosmetic dentistry is only for people who have crooked teeth or have endured accidents or injuries, however, cosmetic dentistry is truly for everyone. Without a doubt, your smile is not the same as it was five or ten years ago. Your alignment may have changed, you may have some wear and tear, or you may have developed staining over the years.
No matter what the case, Dr. Cowdin and her team can restore your smile to its original beauty or enhance it to create the smile you’ve always wanted! Dr. Cowdin’s artistic talents translate well in offering a full range of cosmetic services for her patients.

A dental crown (commonly called a “cap”) is needed when a tooth is badly decayed or fractured. In fact, crowns are proactively recommended for weakened teeth as a preventive measure. When a crown is placed on a weakened or fractured tooth, it provides the strength needed to be able to chew effectively without causing further damage to the tooth. The crown fits completely around and on top of the tooth, offering a weakened tooth the support it needs. Read More »

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone where the tooth once was quickly begins to collapse. In order to keep growing and multiplying, bone cells require the stimulation of biting forces applied to the tooth roots during daily eating. Without this healthy stimulation or “exercise”, the bone simply disappears. This loss of bone is most noticeable immediately after the tooth is removed, but continues throughout your lifetime.

Bridges, sometimes called fixed bridges, literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges are a very good solution if you are unable to have an implant. The bridge uses crowns on either side of the gap to anchor the replacement teeth into place. The replacement teeth are called pontics and are made of porcelain. Read More »
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a restoration that is placed over a tooth. It covers tooth structure above the gums. When a tooth is badly damaged by decay or a dental injury, a crown is normally used to restore the biting function and size of a tooth. If a tooth is severely damaged by wear and tear, a crown can greatly improve the appearance of a noticeably misshapen or broken tooth. Crowns can be made from white materials that look very lifelike. If necessary, a series of white crowns can be placed to improve the function and appearance of a smile.
Why do I need a crown?
A person may need a crown for a number of reasons. Crowns are restorations used to cover all of a tooth above the surface of the gums. These tooth-shaped restorations are custom made and may be used to hold a broken tooth together, restore the shape and size of diseased or damaged tooth, or to improve the oral function and aesthetics of one’s smile.
What is a dental bridge?
A bridge is a series of dental crowns constructed together to fill in gaps of an incomplete smile. Literally bridging the gap between missing teeth and existing healthy teeth, a bridge can replace up to four lost teeth in a row. Like crowns, bridges are custom made from various types of materials from which patients can choose including metal, porcelain, and porcelain fused to metal.
What is a veneer?
A veneer is a cosmetic enhancement that is bonded over the front of teeth to conceal smile imperfections. Veneers can improve the appearance of a smile by covering noticeable flaws like chips, cracks, and stains. A series of veneers can also make a smile appear uniform and straighter. Crafted from porcelain, veneers are custom made for each tooth they are bonded to. This means that patients will enjoy a very natural looking improvement to their smiles.
How can cosmetic dentistry help improve the appearance of my smile?
Cosmetic dentistry can do many things to improve the aesthetics of a smile. From whitening teeth by bleaching deep stains to concealing smile flaws, a cosmetic dental treatment can greatly enhance the appearance of a smile.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a prosthetic used to replace the roots of a missing tooth and support a restoration such as a dental crown. Dental implants are long lasting, low maintenance alternatives to bridges and dentures when it comes to treating tooth loss.
