Professional Cosmetic Dentistry in Erie, PA

People choose cosmetic dental procedures and/or surgery for various reasons—to repair a defect such as a malformed bite or crooked teeth, treat an injury, or just improve their overall appearance. The ultimate goal is to restore a beautiful smile. Common cosmetic dental procedures can be performed to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can also be used to change the overall shape of teeth—from teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be reshaped.

Some of the more common cosmetic dental procedures involve:

  • Bonding - A procedure in which tooth-colored material is used to close gaps or change tooth color.
    Contouring and reshaping - A procedure that straightens crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth.

  • Veneers - A procedure in which ultra-thin coatings are placed over the front teeth. Dental veneers can change the color or shape of your teeth. For example, veneers have been used to correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped or discolored teeth.

  • Teeth whitening and bleaching - As the term implies, teeth whitening and bleaching, a rapidly increasing procedure, are used to make teeth whiter.

A dental exam will take many factors into consideration, including your overall oral health, and will determine the best path to take when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. If you're interested in cosmetic dental procedures, contact Dr. Lee Simon to schedule a dental appointment in Erie, PA today.
