Create a Beautiful Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Apr 17 • 2 minute read


It would be great if our teeth remained in pristine condition, but our teeth do wear down over time. They can become stained, discolored, chipped, broken, misaligned, or have unwanted spaces and gaps between them. What can be done?

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?[1]

Cosmetic dentistry is aimed to enhance a patient’s smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures. In essence, cosmetic dentistry is a “smile makeover” that improves, somewhat similar to dental restoration, both the function and appearance of teeth.

We’ve Got You Covered at Villa Canyon Prosthodontics

Dr. Michael Bleeker is the go-to Scottsdale prosthodontist for cosmetic dentistry. He is known for his compassionate attitude and will always listen to you--making sure to come up with the right solution for your cosmetic dentistry needs.

Dr. Bleeker is a Board Certified Maxillofacial Prosthodontist with over 23 years of experience enhancing smiles in Scottsdale.

Why is being a prosthodontist specifically such great news for a patient seeking cosmetic dentistry? A prosthodontist is “a dental specialist whose practice is limited to the restoration of the natural teeth and/or the replacement of missing teeth with artificial substitutes.”[2]

Don’t be fooled by the word “limited” because the scope of cosmetic dentistry spans across a number of different treatments that Dr. Bleeker can perform.

Cosmetic Dental Solutions[3]

For those looking to enhance their smiles through cosmetic dentistry--Villa Canyon Prosthodontics offers a number of solutions.

Dr. Bleeker will make sure to evaluate your condition and come up with a treatment plan designed to restore optimal results using the least invasive or intrusive procedures. 

Some of the various types of cosmetic dental procedures available are:

        Bridge - A bridge is supported by two anchoring crowns and the prosthetic tooth or teeth will fill in the gaps and can be color-matched by Dr. Bleeker

        Crowns - A restoration covering or replacing the major part, or the whole of the clinical crown of a tooth, or implant

        Dental Implant Restorations - A dental implant is “a device specifically designed to be placed surgically within or on the mandibular or maxillary bone as a means of providing for dental replacement”[4]; thus, implant supported restorations are solely supported by the implant and are made to look like your natural teeth

        Full or Partial Dentures - Denture plates will replace a series of missing teeth or a full palate and are designed to match any remaining teeth; implant supported dentures are an ideal option for for fixed or permanent dentures

        Porcelain Veneers - Thin sheets of porcelain are used to cover imperfections like chipped, uneven, stained, or minor misalignment
