Cosmetic Dentistry

Express Yourself With a Beautiful, Healthy Smile!

Cosmetic dentistry covers a wide range of services that can be subtle or dramatic. The method Dr. Briscoe recommends and uses will be based on your personal situation, and will ultimately be your decision.


Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the ultimate in cosmetic dentistry for transforming your smile. Custom fit and colored shells of porcelain are fit, colored, and applied to your prepared tooth. Tooth preparation is what we do to help the veneers adhere to your teeth. Your porcelain veneer will look like natural teeth, with the same translucence that enamel does. Your smile will look beautiful, healthy, and natural looking.

If a patient wants veneers but has concerns about tooth preparation, Dr. Briscoe can provide an alternative which requires minimal preparation of the tooth. This creates the same luminous appearance as typical veneers.

Composite Bonding

Dental bonding is another option to repair a broken tooth, fill in small gaps, correct a misaligned bite, cover stained teeth, and many other conditions that require treatment, either restorative or esthetic.

Using layer after layer of very thin composite resin bonding material, Dr. Briscoe carefully sculpts the material into the desired shape and position. Each layer creates a cohesive chemical bond with your teeth and with each subsequent layer. The result is a natural-looking restoration using a versatile and strong bonding agent.


Tooth and Gum Recontouring

A conservative option to make small adjustments in your teeth and gums, recontouring can transform the look of your smile. Tooth recontouring can involve sanding nearly microscopic amounts of enamel away from a tooth to correct an overlap, shorten a tooth that is longer than your other teeth, or help adjust your bite into a more aligned position.

When your smile is too “gummy,” Dr. Briscoe can use a soft-tissue diode laser to remove excess gum tissue to reveal more tooth without surgery, and with minimal swelling and quick recovery time.


Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening can lift the color of your teeth up to 10 shades lighter. It will remove most stains and give you a whiter, brighter smile. Dr. Briscoe will make custom whitening trays for you. These are used with prescription-strength Opalescence in the convenience of your home and your schedule. Opalescence is safe and gentle, the only tray whitening system approved by the American Dental Association.


Dental Implants

No matter how many teeth you may have lost, one way to replace them is with strong, durable, and attractive dental implants. Beginning with a titanium screw surgically planted into the jaw to replace the tooth’s root, then an abutment placed on top of the screw, and lastly Dr. Briscoe will cement a porcelain crown to the abutment. The result is a natural looking, high-functioning tooth replacement that will let you eat and speak naturally, and will help maintain the stimulation that the underlying bones need to support the shape of your face.

Smile Makeovers

For a transformative experience, consider a complete smile makeover. Dr. Briscoe will evaluate every single tooth and apply the enhancement or restoration necessary to create a beautiful, symmetrical smile.

A makeover can involve any of the services Dr. Briscoe provides including orthodontics and TMJ/TMD treatments. Just browse our Smile Gallery to see what a total smile makeover can do.
