What Is Cosmetic Dentistry and How Can It Benefit Me?
Cosmetic dentistry takes your smile to the next level by focusing on the details of your smile. We look at the size, shade, shape, and alignment of your teeth in relation to your gums, facial symmetry, and personality. Your cosmetic dentist focuses on the details and harmony of your teeth and gums.
If dentistry is the science behind your smile, then cosmetic dentistry is the beauty behind it.
Maybe your teeth are yellow or brown due to diet, tobacco use, injury, or just as a natural result that happens over time. If so, we might recommend porcelain veneers, professional whitening, or dental crowns.
If your teeth seem short or stubby, we can elongate them through the use of porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or dental crowns.
If you have little gaps between your teeth or at the gum line, dental bonding can quickly fill in any unsightly spaces.
Every recommendation our cosmetic dentists make has its own pros and cons, which we go over with every patient. Patient education is valuable to us, which is why we spend time going over any concerns, questions, and more with everyone we come across.
Cosmetic dentistry combines science and art to create a symmetrical and flawless look. Having a compelling and attractive smile can elevate your self-confidence, which can radiate into other areas of your life.
Many Phoenix patients elect to have cosmetic dentistry procedures to fix one or more of the following common issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Yellow or dull teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Gummy smile
- Stubby teeth
- Chipped teeth
Do you love everything about your smile except for one minor flaw? Your cosmetic dentists are here to fix any issue, regardless of how big it is. We often have patients who want multiple procedures, which is very easy for us to accommodate. Call Dr. Hines or Dr. Keller today to arrange your initial smile makeover consultation.

Many of our Phoenix patients combine multiple treatments to get their desired look. Every journey starts with a single step
Are you missing one or more teeth? There are many options for treating tooth loss that fit your lifestyle or budget.
Dental implants in Phoenix are considered the top standard in tooth replacement options for many reasons, including:
- They stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss
- They do not slip or fall out
- Maintenance is easy
- They look and feel like natural teeth
- With proper care, they can last decades
Dental implants are thin titanium posts anchored into the jaw bone. Unlike special prosthetics, dental implants do not require special care and maintenance.
Do you have chipped or cracked teeth? Are your stains resistant to bleaching?
Dental crowns are a reliable option for weakened or damaged teeth. Dental crowns fit over the entire tooth, unlike veneers that address the front surface of the tooth. Crowns can stabilize and protect damaged teeth so that your bite is protected.
If you are interested in learning more about dental crowns, please give our Phoenix dental office a call at (602) 843-6000. Our friendly dental staff will work with you through each step of the process, from start to finish.
Do you have a chipped or stained tooth?
Many of our Phoenix patients love how veneers have transformed their smiles.
Veneers are flawless, ultrathin porcelain sheaths that bond over your front teeth. This painless, quick, and non-invasive procedure is reliable and accessible to anyone with minor to moderate smile flaws.
Restoring chipped teeth or sculpting existing teeth has never been easier.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Many of us fail to really utilize our dentists. They can be your best ally when it comes to a beautiful and strong smile. Our first life of defense? Years of stubborn plaque and stains. When it comes to our formulated teeth whitening, almost anything melts away.
At Dental Care at Moon Valley, our dentists in Phoenix, AZ, we use high-grade bleach that polishes off yellow or dark stains. Our cosmetic dental procedure takes just under one hour, which means you can come in during your lunch break.
How Does the Cosmetic Dental Process Work?
Every dental procedure in our Phoenix, AZ dental office starts with an initial consultation or appointment to go over what patients have in mind and if they are good candidates for the procedure. Our cosmetic dentists patiently go over each step of the process and invite patients to ask questions, so they fully understand their options.
We provide comprehensive guidance throughout the entire smile makeover process, complete with a thorough aftercare plan so that you can enjoy your cosmetic results for a long time. Losing a tooth impacts both your smile and your self-confidence. Having a gap can make it harder to chew, bite down, and talk. Cosmetic dentistry can address both function and style.
At your initial consultation with your Phoenix cosmetic dentist, we check your dental and general health to make sure you don't have underlying oral health issues that could impact your cosmetic procedure. If there are signs of gum disease or tooth decay, Dr. Keller or Dr. Hines will diagnose and treat these and other issues before continuing with any cosmetic procedures.
