Cosmetic Dentistry Services In Cedar Rapids, IA

A little change in your smile can make a big change in your appearance. Within the past ten years, there has been a remarkable interest in cosmetic dentistry leading to great advances in technology. It is because of these advances that we can improve smiles in quick, painless, and affordable treatments.

Cosmetic dental treatments can:

  • · Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth
  • · Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth
  • · Improve or correct bites
  • · Lighten or brighten the color of teeth
  • · Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • · Replace missing teeth
  • · Replace old, unattractive dental treatments

People often forget that enhancing your appearance includes modifying your smile. A healthy and beautiful smile will give you a new confidence that you can benefit from every day of the year. We know that a little change can make all the difference.


Our smiles are as unique as our fingerprints, so it’s no surprise that they are often the first feature someone notices. After all, who can forget a white, healthy-looking smile? Of course, there are so many issues that can affect the overall appearance of your smile. Even though your smile may be healthy it may not look like it at first glance. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry has grown so much over the decades, allowing us to offer everything from minor tweaks to full makeovers.

Through the latest techniques and technologies available, we can treat teeth that suffer from:

  • Discolorations and stains
  • Chips and cracks
  • Unevenness
  • Misshapen or worn teeth
  • Crowding
  • Crookedness

Through cosmetic dentistry we can do everything from reshaping teeth to closing gaps between teeth to altering the shape of your gums. While subtler changes to your smile may easily be completed with options like dental bonding, tooth reshaping and contouring, or in-office teeth whitening, remember that cosmetic dentistry can also tackle more challenging issues.

While many people consider ways to change the shape, color or size of their teeth, those with gum recession due to gum disease or other problems may be looking for ways to recontour gums. In the past, gum grafting was the surgery of choice; however, this often results in an extensive recovery time, and sometimes more than one procedure is required to treat the issue. However, pinhole rejuvenation is a great and less invasive way to treat receding gums without the long recovery time.

In fact, pinhole rejuvenation doesn’t require stitches, scalpels or any downtime after treatment. And pinhole surgical treatment only takes a couple minutes per tooth. It’s called pinhole surgery because a pinhole-sized space is all that is needed for special tools to move gums. Instead of stitches, collagen strips are placed over these areas to keep gums in place as they heal. You’ll achieve the desired results right away and these pinholes will close in 24 hours.

Another popular cosmetic surgery is dental implants, which can be used to replace one or even all of your missing teeth. This cosmetic and restorative treatment is a great option for those with otherwise healthy smiles who want to replace missing teeth for the long term. This cosmetic treatment requires surgery in order to place the implant into the jawbone, where it will naturally fuse together with bone over the course of a couple months. Implants boast more reliability, resilience and longevity than other options like dentures or bridges.
