Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A


What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the specialty area of dentistry that focuses on the appearance of your smile. It includes a variety of treatments to correct or cover dental imperfections, including:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Unevenly shaped or sized teeth
  • Gaps or overlapping teeth
  • Bite misalignment (overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite)
  • Crooked or twisted teeth

Some cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as dental implants and crowns, are also restorative as they improve or repair your dental function and health. 

What are some of the common cosmetic dentistry services?

The team at Desert Dentist provides a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments. Some of the most commonly requested procedures include:

Teeth whitening

The team offers in-office Zoom® teeth whitening treatments to eliminate stains and discoloration in just one hour. The treatment utilizes a professional-grade whitening gel and a special light to activate the bleaching process.

You can also opt for at-home treatments using custom-made dental trays and teeth whitening gel.


Veneers are thin porcelain shells attached to the fronts of your teeth. The Desert Dentist team uses them to cover various imperfections ranging from intrinsic staining to gaps and unevenly sized teeth.

Dental bonding

The dentists use dental bonding to reshape an abnormally shaped or chipped tooth with moldable composite resin. The dentist molds the resin by hand to provide a highly personalized treatment to enhance your smile. 

Snap-on Smile®

Snap-on Smile is a convenient and affordable option to enhance your smile. Your dentist fits you with a custom-made removable device that “snaps” onto your teeth to cover various dental imperfections. 


Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional orthodontics. Instead of wearing brackets and wires on your teeth, you wear a series of custom-made transparent aligners that guide your teeth into their correct positions. 

How do I know which cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for me?

The team at Desert Dentist provides thorough exams and consultations before recommending a cosmetic dentistry procedure. 

Depending on your individual needs, they might suggest a series of treatments during a full mouth reconstruction or “smile makeover” to correct several imperfections at once.
