Cosmetic Dentisry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a way to enhance the function and appearance of your teeth and smile. It restores teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Loose
  • Missing
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Gapped
  • Broken
  • Discolored
  • Weak
  • Misshapen

Cosmetic dentistry is designed to improve your smile’s appearance, but it can also strengthen teeth and improve their function. For example, a properly aligned full set of teeth enhances your ability to speak clearly and chew efficiently.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry, the experienced dental team at Christine S. Liu DMD, PC, reviews your medical and dental history and completes a comprehensive dental examination. 

The team uses X-rays to determine which type of procedure or combination of treatments is right for you.

Which cosmetic dentistry options are available?

The following cosmetic dentistry options available at Christine S. Liu DMD, PC, can restore a beautiful smile:

Teeth whitening

Your dentist offers Zoom teeth whitening to make your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just a single in-office treatment. Your dentist uses Zoom’s blue LED light-accelerated technology and whitening gel to deliver enamel protection and reduce sensitivity while brightening your smile. They also offer teeth whitening kits for at-home use.


Dental veneers are thin teeth coverings made of porcelain or composite resin material. They look like natural teeth and fit securely over the front part of your teeth to restore their color, shape, size, and texture for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.


Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners made of innovative SmartTrack® material to discreetly straighten crooked teeth over time without metal brackets or wires.

Dental implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of metal that your dentist implants into your jawbone. Implants support new artificial teeth to fill in gaps and perfect your smile.

Smile makeovers

Your dentist may use more than one cosmetic dentistry procedure to achieve a smile makeover and beautiful teeth you feel confident about.
