Enhance Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry in Glendale, AZ
Patients looking for a Glendale, AZ cosmetic dentist who are unhappy with broken or stained teeth, or unsightly gaps in their smiles, may visit our dentists at AZ Family Dental to improve their appearance.
With so many cosmetic dentistry procedures available, patients can have most teeth damage repaired without undergoing extensive or painful restoration procedures. To help people achieve aesthetic smiles as well as optimal oral health, cosmetic dentistry in Glendale offers procedures such as bonding, white fillings, teeth whitening, dental crowns, tooth reshaping and porcelain veneers.
In the past, these procedures were performed with gold and other metals; the materials used in today’s cosmetic dentistry procedures not only make teeth look more natural, but are also stronger and more effective because of developments in adhesive bonding. Porcelain has become the standard material in veneers and crowns, while resin and other bonding agents secure the dental work without compromising the health of the underlying teeth.
One of our more popular cosmetic dentistry techniques is tooth-colored fillings and bonding. For front and side teeth affected by small cavities and pitting, white fillings work well to repair cavities in teeth that are not subjected to strong chewing forces.
Patients who do not want fillings in any of their teeth may opt for dental crowns to protect teeth from further decay. Depending on where decay exists on a tooth, applying bonding material and molding the material to cover the decay may also work just as well as using white filling. Your Phoenix cosmetic dentist may suggest inlays to repair cavities and dental crowns for teeth experiencing more than just a cavity. If fillings are too large or cracks are observed, your dentist may recommend crowns as a better solution.
How long does cosmetic dentistry take?
A typical visit to a cosmetic dentist in Glendale, AZ takes 1-2 hours, but some procedures require more time. For example, bleaching can be done in one visit, but reshaping and veneers might require follow-up visits.
Good oral hygiene and healthy habits can prevent much of the wear and tear on teeth. But if you want to change your appearance and raise your self-confidence, our Glendale AZ cosmetic dentists are here to help. We work with you to find the right procedures to restore your smile.

“One of my greatest experiences in dentistry was when a new patient of mine asked me to fix a broken front tooth of hers. The tooth had been broken for years and when I was finished she cried because she felt she could smile again. It was then that I realized the power of cosmetic dentistry and a healthy smile.”
