Enhance Your Smile With Our Sierra Vista Dentist

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care that uses advanced dental techniques and technologies, such as oral prosthetics, to improve the physical appearance of your teeth and smile. It provides quick, pain-free treatment options that can boost your confidence and self-esteem.

Aside from refreshing the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dental services can also provide restorative benefits. For example, if you’re missing one or several permanent teeth, cosmetic treatments from our Sierra Vista dentist can prevent more serious health problems like receding gums and bone deterioration.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Teeth Whitening

Commercial whitening products may seem convenient, but typically produce uneven results that don’t last very long. Our dentist in Sierra Vista offers professional teeth whitening treatment with custom take-home trays. To achieve a bright, white smile, you squeeze a whitening solution into your trays and wear them 30 minutes a day. Slowly but surely, the solution eradicates stains and discoloration, revealing a brilliant smile underneath. Unlike over-the-counter products, this treatment won’t result in tooth or gum sensitivity. 

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-crafted shells of porcelain or composite resin bonded to the fronts of your permanent teeth to restore balance and symmetry to your smile. Dental veneers are versatile enough to address various cosmetic imperfections, including chipped, cracked, discolored, and misshapen teeth. This restoration is also durable enough to withstand your daily habits, so you won’t have to worry about them shifting or coming loose as you speak or eat. 

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that restore a damaged or decaying tooth to its near-original shape, size, and appearance. Once placed, a customized dental crown covers the entire portion of your tooth that sits above the gum line, shielding against unhealthy bacteria and further damage. Our cosmetic dentist is proud to offer zirconia dental crowns for unmatched durability.


If your cosmetic dental issues go beyond tooth discoloration or damage, you may benefit from an orthodontic treatment to straighten your smile. Orthodontics is a dentistry branch that uses appliances like braces and plastic trays to gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaws. This process restores balance to your smile while making daily tasks like chewing and biting much easier.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover combines several dental procedures to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Utilizing treatments like teeth whitening, dental veneers, and orthodontics, Dr. Hales recommends smile makeovers to transform your smile and self-esteem. This treatment is typically reserved for patients with severe dental issues that can’t be resolved with one specific treatment. 

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction combines dental procedures to improve the physical function of your teeth and jaws. This treatment is similar to a smile makeover and often includes cosmetic treatments, though it places more emphasis on restorative dental treatments. If you’re missing most of your permanent teeth, or you have a severe case of periodontal disease, you’re likely a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction.
