When teeth have been chipped, fractured, significantly discolored, are crooked, or contain gaps, dental veneers may be the most suitable form of cosmetic treatment. A single veneer can correct a chipped or cracked tooth, or several veneers may be custom-fabricated to create a whole new smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

When a tooth requires a filling, there is no need to use amalgam metals when composite material creates a seamless transition and the strong foundation needed for biting and chewing. Using precise techniques, tooth-colored composite material is bonded to a tooth after all decay has been removed, restoring structure without leaving that telltale dark spot in the smile. Today, we use the same tooth-colored composite filling materials to correct and conceal cosmetic flaws like chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in the smile. This cosmetic dentistry service is often referred to as cosmetic dental bonding. In just one trip to our dental office, we can correct several flaws, so you’ll leave with the picture-perfect smile you deserve.

Teeth Whitening

Because our teeth are porous, substances that lead to stains easily find their way into deep layers of enamel. Once settled, teeth begin to dull and discolor. We all experience discoloration at one point or another because it is virtually impossible to avoid all factors that lead to staining. At Glisten Dental Care of Tulsa, we provide two different approaches to teeth whitening, both utilizing Opalescence whitening formulas, so that all of our patients may find their optimal form of smile enhancement. For those who want a whiter smile without the wait, we administer in-office teeth whitening, and for those who would like to whiten their smile in the comfort of their own home, take-home whitening trays are available.

Gum Recontouring

Has your gum tissue always felt excessively “gummy,” making your teeth look shorter than they actually are? While this is not an oral health concern, it can make you feel self-conscious about showing off your smile. The good news is we can easily reshape and recontour your gumline to make your teeth look larger and your smile fuller. And by using soft tissue laser dentistry to do so, we can be extremely precise and as conservative as possible.

Virtual Smile Design

If you’ve ever wanted to get cosmetic dental treatments done but felt hesitant because you weren’t sure what the outcome would be, virtual smile design is worth looking into. By taking a photo of your smile and uploading it to our computer, we can simulate exactly what your future smile can look like after receiving veneers, whitening, bonding, or just about any other cosmetic treatment you’re considering. Want to take a photo showing your simulated smile home with you to think it over? We encourage it!

Smile Makeovers

When one treatment isn’t enough to meet your smile goals, a makeover is the best solution. Smile makeover plans consist of several cosmetic dentistry treatments that target specific areas of concern. For example, you could need Invisalign to address gaps and misalignment, but also want teeth whitening to remove stubborn stains. The possibilities are endless when it comes to transforming your smile, so feel free to ask for recommendations during your next appointment.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Some people may consider cosmetic dentistry a frivolous expense, but the truth is that for most patients, it can be a truly transformative process. With benefits that span from improved psychological well-being to boosted oral health, it’s no wonder why so many patients invest in procedures like smile makeovers, teeth whitening, and veneers.

Better Oral Health

When we set out to improve the look of a patient's smile, we also evaluate the health of teeth and gums, as treating an unhealthy mouth will impact the comfort and longevity of the cosmetic treatment. Although many people undergo treatment with Invisalign as a way to improve the look of the smile, this treatment also leads to easier brushing, flossing, and improved oral health.


In some instances, fixing cosmetic problems relieves strain on the jaw or the teeth themselves. Teeth that are misaligned, for instance, may not share the brunt of pressure when we chew our food. This imbalance places undue stress on the teeth and the joints at the back of the jaw. Reaching a state of alignment relieves stress and improves comfort.

Positive Self-Image

Our smiles are the central focus of our face, and the appearance of teeth is difficult to mask. Correcting cosmetic concerns allows you to love the look of your smile and therefore view yourself differently.

Greater Confidence

In surveys on the subject of the smile, 75 percent of respondents reported that the smile has a direct impact on success at work and in social and romantic settings. When you like the look of your smile you tend to feel more confident in yourself, which carries over to all of your endeavors.

Restored Vitality

Teeth that have been dulled by years of exposure to staining agents such as coffee or red wine, age the smile. Missing teeth age the entire face. Handling these problems, which seem primarily cosmetic, rejuvenates the smile and fills facial contours so that you retain your most vibrant aesthetic.

Enhanced Experiences

When you are unhappy with your smile, your ability to engage fully in every moment is diminished. Correcting cosmetic issues, no matter how small or large, will allow you to take your attention off of your cosmetic concerns and place them outward, into the moment you are experiencing. The confidence that you feel in your smile extends to your interactions and promotes them to a whole new level.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Do you have more questions about getting the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted? For your convenience, we’ve gathered some of the most common questions we get about cosmetic dentistry in Tulsa below. If you don’t see the answer you’re looking for, we encourage you to contact us at Glisten Dental Care of Tulsa today and we’ll be more than happy to help!

Is cosmetic dentistry only about looks?

Every cosmetic dentistry treatment is designed to help your smile look and feel its best. For example, concealing chips, cracks, and other areas of damaged enamel with dental bonding or porcelain veneers improves their appearance and protects these areas from bacteria. Removable Invisalign aligners make straightening your smile convenient while also making it easier to keep your teeth clean. Studies even show that those who invest in the appearance of their smile with treatments like teeth whitening show a marked improvement in at-home oral hygiene habits!

Can children or teens get cosmetic dentistry?

The appearance of a person’s smile can have a huge impact on their self-esteem, especially when they’re younger. Unfortunately, try as you might to protect your son or daughter’s smile, life happens. They may chip a tooth while chewing on a pen cap, get a crack while playing their favorite sport, or develop stubborn discoloration from too many acidic beverages. Thankfully, treatments like dental bonding and teeth whitening are generally a safe and effective way to restore your child’s precious pearly whites. During their consultation, Dr. Hammond will closely inspect their unique smile to ensure that cosmetic dentistry is a good choice for them.

How long will it take to improve my smile with cosmetic dentistry?

Since no two smiles are the same, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to cosmetic dentistry. The timeline for your new set of pearly whites will depend on a variety of factors like what treatments you’ve chosen, how much work needs to be done, and if your oral health is on track. Quick and easy services like dental bonding and teeth whitening can give you dramatic results in as little as a single appointment. However, if you’re using an at-home whitening kit or getting a custom-made restoration like porcelain veneers, your treatment will take a little bit longer.

Is cosmetic dentistry painful?

At Glisten Dental Care of Tulsa, your comfort is one of our top priorities. Alongside her years of experience, Dr. Hammond stays up to date with all the latest dental techniques to ensure every treatment goes as smoothly as possible. Before beginning your journey towards your new smile, she’ll carefully inspect your teeth and gums. Issues like tooth decay and gum disease can make services like teeth whitening uncomfortable, and even influence their success. She’ll address any early warning signs and get your oral health in excellent shape to ensure you can comfortably achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
