Has your smile seen better days? When you catch a glimpse of your teeth in the mirror or in a photograph, is your first instinct to look away? As we get older, our teeth age with us. Whether due to genetics or lifestyle — in most cases probably a combination of the two — it’s not unusual for pearly whites to darken, chip, crack, and just wear down over the years.
But there is absolutely no reason to be unhappy with your teeth any longer. At Drew Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures with the potential to take years off your smile — and you.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Transform Your Smile
At Drew Family Dentistry, we offer a full menu of cosmetic dentistry techniques. At your consultation, we will be happy to discuss which options are the best fit for your particular complaints and for your wallet. We may also combine techniques for a full smile makeover.
Teeth bonding is an excellent option for the following types of problems:
- Small cosmetic chips or cracks
- Discolored areas
- A tooth that’s too short
- A tooth that’s oddly shaped
- Gaps between teeth
The procedure is fast, completed in one dental visit, and painless — anesthesia is generally not required. We will use a liquid to roughen up the surface of the tooth to be bonded, which enables the bonding material to adhere better. We will then take a putty-like composite resin that’s been matched to your enamel color and shape it to the tooth. The resin is hardened using a special light, then we make any final adjustments. Your teeth look totally natural, but flawless.
We get lots of complaints from people about the color of their teeth. Drinking coffee and tea, eating certain foods, and smoking all take a toll on your pearly whites. Our whitening treatments are highly effective and can lighten your enamel by several shades. They contain a higher percentage of active ingredient than the kits you’ll find at the drugstore, and the custom whitening trays fit your bite perfectly, ensuring comfort and no leakage.
If you want a dramatic transformation, dental veneers are the way to go. Look at a few pictures of celebrities with dazzling grins. Chances are, they owe their flawless smiles to dental veneers. A veneer is simply a very thin, custom-made shell that’s adhered permanently to the front of your tooth, eliminating whatever flaws may be underneath Our porcelain veneers share the translucent quality of real enamel, making them exceedingly lifelike. With good oral hygiene, dental veneers will last years.
