- Missing teeth
- A ‘gummy’ smile
- Chipped or worn teeth

Cosmetic Services provided by our Stockbridge dentists include:
Porcelain Veneers & Crowns
Porcelain is the artists' palette of dentistry: with virtually limitless opportunities to renew a smile, porcelain is available in a vast array of shades with a translucency value similar to natural teeth, offering the combined beauty and strength of fired ceramics.
Porcelain veneers are thin custom-molded facings that adhere to teeth to cosmetically enhance their appearance with smooth, highly polished porcelain. They require less tooth preparation than larger restorations and can improve the appearance of teeth that are badly stained, slightly crooked, misshaped or under-sized.

Cosmetic Dental Crowns & Bridges
When teeth are too badly damaged or decayed to restore with porcelain veneers or traditional fillings, the best solution is often a dental crown. All-porcelain dental crowns and bridges are used to restore natural translucency and vibrancy to teeth, and have become the restoration of choice to replace aged crown and bridge work - no metal means no grayed edges.

Cosmetic Gum Lifts
Dental laser gum lifts are often recommended for patients with ‘gummy’ smiles, uneven gum lines or small areas of excess gum tissue that detract from overall smile symmetry. Our dentists use a dental laser to re-shape gum tissue to create a more esthetically pleasing smile line.
The dental laser uses a focused energy technology to remove tissue in microscopic layers, making the procedure more comfortable for the patient with less bleeding than traditional surgery. Less bleeding also helps reduce healing time.

Composite Dental Bonding
Dental composite filling materials may be used to restore small gaps or defects in teeth to improve smile appearance. Available in a wide range of shades to match natural teeth, the pliable filling material is shaped and hardened using a light-cured adhesive bonding process.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is an economical and safe cosmetic dental procedure. Professional teeth whitening products can help remove old stains from coffee, wine, tea, smoking or colas and lighten other discolorations in tooth enamel. Our in-office whitening system allows us to whiten your teeth while you relax in the dental chair and read a magazine or watch TV. This process takes about an hour, and in most cases can make teeth several shades lighter.

Cerec® 3D Dentistry
Cerec PrimeScan® 3D imaging and CAD-CAM technology gives our dentists the ability to design and mill a natural-looking dental crown from durable ceramic materials while you wait. And, because your Cerec® crown is complete in one appointment, there is no need for an annoying temporary crown or a return visit to receive your final crown.

Tooth shape correction is a minor procedure that can make a big difference. If you have a tooth that has a chipped, rough or sharply pointed edge, it may be possible for our dentists to smooth and gently shape the tooth to create a more natural appearance. Tooth contouring can sometimes be used to improve the appearance of enamel surfaces that are discolored due to heredity, medications, illness or trauma.

Restore Beauty to Your Smile with Dental Implants
Dental implants are made of titanium and are used to replace the lost function of a missing tooth. Our implant dentist Dr. Gary Bartholomew has surgically placed dental implants for over 20 years in our Stockbridge dental practice. Together with Dr. Alex Bartholomew, our dentists can restore missing teeth with dental implant restorations to bring health and beauty back to your smile.
