Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile says a lot about you, especially since it’s one of the first features people notice when they meet you.

Are you happy with the appearance of your teeth? Do you find yourself feeling self-conscious when you talk or smile at other people?

Did you know that cosmetic dentistry offers a number of different options for enhancing your smile?

Dr. Carlson and Dr. Giang-Carlson understand what a huge impact a beautiful smile can make, and we can help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of at Appleton Dental Care.

Teeth Whitening

One of the quickest ways to change the appearance of your teeth is to whiten them. For some patients, whitening is all they need.

We offer customized take-home whitening trays that will allow you to brighten your smile on your own schedule. Customized trays protect your teeth from the damage that excess whitening gel can cause, and you’ll even be able to use them down the road to update as you like.

Porcelain Veneers

For patients with teeth in need of repair, porcelain veneers are a great option.

Veneers are thin layers of porcelain bonded directly over your natural tooth structure. They’re ideal for repairing issues such as:

  • Stains and discoloration
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Small chips, fractures, or excessive wear
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps or spacing between teeth
  • Size discrepancies

Did you know that veneers are responsible for many of the Hollywood smiles we admire? They can be custom shaded to match your existing teeth or completely change the appearance of your smile. They’re also stain resistant, which means they don’t discolor like your natural enamel, and you won’t have to worry about whitening.

Tooth-Colored Restorations

At Appleton Dental Care, when you have a tooth in need of repair, we’re committed to not only restoring function to your smile, but also esthetics. This is why we use only tooth-colored materials such as composite resin or porcelain for dental fillings, cosmetic bonding, crowns, and implant crowns.

Composite is our material of choice for dental fillings and cosmetic bonding. It’s pliable and comfortable for our doctors to work with, as well as durable and capable of lasting many years. We can also customize it to match your existing teeth so your dental work is not noticeable.

Porcelain ceramic is what we use for dental crowns and implant restorations. Our crowns are designed to closely mimic your tooth in shape, structure, and shade so you enjoy all the function and esthetics you had with your natural tooth. Crowns are often part of a complete smile makeover plan to repair and restore your smile.

If you’ve considered changing the appearance of your smile, we encourage you to contact Appleton Dental Care and schedule an appointment with Dr. Carlson or Dr. Giang-Carlson to learn more about your options.
