Powell Cosmetic Dentistry

A rapidly emerging field of dentistry is referred to as cosmetic dentistry. Your smile is the most important social bonding gesture that people notice. It displays your confidence, happiness and joy as well as personal benefit of pride & comfort, enjoyment of personal esthetics, function and speech. In cosmetic dentistry, the emphasis is on improving the patient’s smile through changing the appearance of the teeth and mouth. Many people view cosmetic dental practices as being elective treatments – as opposed to necessary dental treatments – but having a beautiful, engaging smile and feeling secure in one’s appearance can make people feel better about themselves and lead to a full, happier life. Anyone who is concerned with the appearance of their smile may benefit from today’s cosmetic dental procedures.

Cosmetic dentistry can:

  • Replace old metal amalgam fillings or metal crowns
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Balance your tooth length of uneven teeth
  • Reposition crowded teeth
  • Repair fractured, worn and chipped teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth with composite or porcelain materials
  • Whiten discolored or stained teeth
  • Reshape irregularities of teeth

Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Composite bonding:
replaces the broken, chipped, and discolored parts of teeth through the use of a special composite material.

Dental veneers:
a porcelain or composite facing that literally covers the face of the tooth. It is adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth or teeth to cover gaps, cracks, and chips in existing teeth and also to improve the color of the teeth. This is a predictable and exciting cosmetic procedure requiring only 2 visits for an amazing life changing result!


Inlays or onlays:
inlays are also called indirect fillings; they are a long-lasting type of filling that is added to teeth with tooth decay or other structural damage and cemented into the tooth.
