Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on visually improving your teeth, gums, and overall smile. Although elective, cosmetic procedures can make you feel more confident when laughing, talking, and engaging with others socially and in your place of work. 

Any dentistry done for aesthetic reasons can also aid in overall oral health with long-lasting results. 

What are my cosmetic dentistry options? 

The team at Ledner & Zaiff Dental Designs offers several options to restore your smile. They also provide smile makeovers, which may include more than one procedure.

Teeth whitening 

Teeth whitening includes procedures, done at home or in the office, that focus on whitening your teeth and restoring a vibrant smile. Ledner & Zaiff Dental Designs offers the modern Zoom! tooth whitening system that corrects tooth discoloration. 


If you have a gap in any of your teeth, most commonly your front two, bonding may be a good choice for you. The procedure fills in spaces between your teeth using composite resin material that is the color of your tooth. Bonding also fixes chips or cracks in teeth.

Enamel shaping or contouring 

Enamel shaping restores a smooth and visually pleasing shape to your tooth. Your dentist contours your tooth, to reduce crowding in your mouth, overlapping teeth, rough tooth edges, or the shape of your tooth.


Veneers are porcelain shells that can whiten, straighten, or close spaces between your teeth. They are normally only around 1mm thick, and your dentist bonds them to the front surface of your teeth to look natural. 


Crowns, or caps, aren’t used as frequently for cosmetic purposes as veneers but may be encouraged if you have a damaged or fractured tooth, discolored tooth, or one with a previous filling. Your dentist can match a crown to your natural tooth color.

White fillings

If you have an older filling that is silver or gold, your dentist can replace it with a white filling. Darker fillings can be distracting, and opting for a white filling keeps your smile sparkling.


A wide range of orthodontic options is offered, including arch expanders that help younger patients avoid braces, and retainers to maintain straight teeth. The team also offers Invisalign®, which uses a series of clear, tailor-made retainers to straighten teeth. 


Ledner & Zaiff Dental Designs provides both partial and full dentures and works with you to determine the best plan for your needs.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a replacement tooth root that restores a missing tooth. The team coordinates dental implant placement with local specialists who offer standard implants and the modern All-on-4® treatment option, which provides you with a fixed full-arch prosthesis using only four implants. 

Which cosmetic dentistry option is right for me?

Ledner & Zaiff Dental Designs works with you to determine which procedure will best achieve your brightest, most confident smile. 

Your dentist completes an oral exam and walks through your oral health history with you before proceeding with any treatment plans. They work together with you to determine which cosmetic procedure is the most cost-effective option.
