Cosmetic Dentistry To Enhance Your Natural Beauty
One of the secrets of our Smile Design approach is that Dr. Elliott takes a comprehensive approach to your care, considering both general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry together. The first step is to establish a healthy foundation, addressing any health concerns such as periodontal (gum) disease or malocclusion. Then, the cosmetic concerns are addressed, creating a beautiful, natural looking smile.
Our cosmetic dental treatments include:
- Teeth whitening
- Invisalign clear braces
- Porcelain veneers
- Porcelain dental crowns
- Cosmetic tooth bonding
Cosmetic dentistry is an investment in your long term dental health and your appearance – that’s why it is important to find a cosmetic dentist with the right experience and training.

Brighten your Smile with At-Home Teeth Whitening
In recent years, it seems as though you can’t turn on the television or open a magazine without seeing gleaming white teeth staring back at you. A bright, white smile is among the most desirable traits today and for this reason, teeth whitening is at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Melissa Elliott offers at-home teeth whitening, which has become an increasingly popular and cost-effective alternative to professional in office teeth whitening treatments.
Yellowish stains, such as those caused by coffee and soda, typically bleach well. However, brown or gray-hued teeth often do not respond well to bleaching. In addition, tooth-colored bonding materials or porcelain crowns are not affected by bleaching and you may want to consider other options. A quick consultation with Dr. Elliott regarding teeth whitening can help you determine your best option, and provide you with your brightest and whitest smile!
If your treatment plan includes a take-home whitening treatment, Dr. Elliott will take impressions of your teeth to provide custom bleaching trays. Our professional products are specially formulated to reduce side effects such as tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. The custom bleaching trays will keep the bleaching products concentrated on tooth surfaces and away from soft mouth tissue.
Take-home teeth whitening will provide gradual results that are superior to over the counter options. Your bright, white smile will last for a year or more. Periodic touch-ups can help maintain your fresh new look. Avoiding tobacco use and the consumption of dark beverages, such as coffee and red wine, will also improve the longevity of your treatment.
