Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that’s aimed at improving your smile. A smile full of white, straight teeth is one that exudes confidence and great health, but Mother Nature often has different plans. Whether your teeth are dull with age, chipped, or decayed, the team at Don E. Larson, DMD, has you covered.

Why would I need cosmetic dentistry?

It’s hardly a mystery that a smile backed by white, straight teeth sends a powerful message. In fact, studies have shown that people form first impressions about you based on nothing but your smile and that it’s the one feature people tend to remember the most.

Ultimately, your smile acts as a calling card, delivering an important message about yourself long before you utter a word. This type of smile is important when it comes to both your professional and social life. 

So, if you have a smile full of stained or chipped teeth, or you’re even missing teeth, you may be sending the wrong message, which is where cosmetic dentistry can help.

What services fall under cosmetic dentistry?

The team at Don E. Larson, DMD, offers an extensive array of cosmetic dentistry options, including:


Veneers are thin shells that the dentist places over the fronts of your teeth, namely in your “smile zone,” giving you brighter, straighter, and more even rows of teeth.

Composite fillings

If you have dental caries (cavities), the goal at Don E. Larson, DMD, is to stop the decay by removing the affected tissue and plugging the hole with a filling. Rather than using materials made from metal, which stand out against your teeth, the team offers composite fillings, which are tooth-colored fillings.

Professional teeth whitening

One of the easiest ways to make a big difference in your smile is with teeth whitening. But rather than struggling with messy and ineffective over-the-counter products, the team at Don E. Larson, DMD, uses the Sinsational Smile® in-office whitening system, which works far more quickly — in just one visit.

In addition to these options, the team at Don E. Larson, DMD, also offers clear aligners to straighten teeth, same-day porcelain crowns with CEREC®, and onlays.
