Cosmetic Dentistry

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry involves dental procedures in which your dentist makes your teeth more aesthetically pleasing. They use veneers, whitening, Invisalign®, and more to improve teeth that are:

  • Stained
  • Discolored
  • Misshapen
  • Worn down
  • Crooked
  • Missing
  • Decaying
  • Cracked
  • Weak

Dr. Strauss and her team first offer Invisalign to straighten your teeth, before moving forward with other cosmetic procedures.

Which cosmetic dentistry services are available?

Providers at Strauss Dental offer several cosmetic dentistry services including:


Veneers are custom-made shells made of tooth-colored materials that fit over your natural teeth to improve their appearance. Your dentist securely cements them in place for long-lasting comfort and durability. 

Inlays and onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are tooth restorations your dentist uses to repair teeth with mild to moderate decay or other tooth damage. The damage often isn’t severe enough to require a crown, but inlays and onlays still cover a large portion of a tooth to repair and protect it.

Composite restorations

Composite restorations are tooth-colored materials that repair damage associated with decay or tooth trauma. The materials blend in perfectly with your natural teeth and protect them from future damage. Your dentist applies composite restorations to teeth using a process called bonding.


In-office or at-home teeth whitening can give you the beautiful smile of your dreams. Your dentist uses a special whitening gel and dental trays to make your teeth many shades whiter after just a single treatment. 


Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to slowly straighten crooked teeth over time without bulky brackets or wires. Because the aligners are clear, many people won’t notice you’re wearing them.

Which cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for me?

To determine which cosmetic dentistry procedure is right for you, the Strauss Dental team reviews your medical history and examines your teeth. They also use dental X-rays to plan the best way to perfect your smile.

Your Strauss Dental provider may recommend more than one cosmetic dental procedure for a smile makeover. To get started with a whiter, more beautiful smile, schedule an appointment with Strauss Dental over the phone or online today.
