Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What are some of my cosmetic dentistry treatment options?

Cosmetic dentistry revolves around enhancing the appearance and design of your smile and resolving cosmetic problems. Dr. Dharia can perform and complete many cosmetic services in just one quick and convenient office visit.

Cosmetic dentistry often allows you to avoid more extensive orthodontic treatments. Dr. Dharia offers proven-successful and personalized cosmetic dentistry services, such as:

Teeth straightening

There are various available methods, such as braces, to straighten and realign misaligned and crooked teeth.

Teeth whitening

There are a number of teeth-whitening options, such as laser technology and take-home trays. Most teeth-whitening procedures use a highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel to whiten your teeth. You can choose from a variety of shades to get the most natural-looking results.

Professional teeth whitening is more successful and effective than at-home whitening methods because of the higher concentration of bleaching chemicals administered by a qualified dental professional.


Lumineers cover the front surface of your tooth like a protective shell. They’re made from thin porcelain sheets that cover chipped or stained teeth.


A bridge is a great way to replace a missing tooth or missing teeth. A bridge works to bridge the gap between your teeth using crowns that are attached together.

Dental implants

Dental implants secure your dental prosthesis in place and act as artificial tooth roots. The implants are carefully, surgically attached to your jawbone in an in-office procedure.


Crowns cover and sit on top of your tooth, which act as caps to restore chipped, discolored, or broken teeth.

Why would I need cosmetic dentistry?

As well as improving the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Restore broken or chipped teeth
  • Cover stained or discolored teeth
  • Straighten, reshape, or realign misaligned teeth

Dr. Dharia also provides laser dentistry, which is less invasive and often more effective than traditional dental procedures and surgeries.

How do general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry differ?

Cosmetic dentistry differs from general dentistry. Many general dentists are also trained in cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic dental procedures like teeth whitening and dental implants.

Cosmetic dentistry involves services and procedures that restore the aesthetics of your smile and help you address specific concerns that might be diminishing your confidence. General dentistry is more general dental care, such as professional teeth cleanings and diagnostic exams.

General dentistry is centered around addressing and preventing dental health complications and boosting the strength, health, and functioning of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
