Veneers are thin, durable shells that are custom-crafted from dental porcelain to fit over the visible surface of your teeth. They can be customized to enhance one damaged tooth or an entire row of teeth that you’d like to have restored. Veneers are a great option for patients who suffer from several cosmetic flaws at once, like dental discoloration, damaged teeth, and even slight misalignment. Once they’re secured onto your teeth, you’ll be able to enjoy them for up to 15 years with the proper maintenance.
Lumineers offer similar results as porcelain veneers, but they’re a better option for patients who are looking for a more temporary change. The primary difference between these two procedures is that Lumineers are significantly thinner, meaning that our team won’t need to remove any of your natural tooth structure to accommodate for the thickness of the restorations, like we would need to with veneers. While they don’t last as long, they also don’t require permanently altering your teeth to achieve a beautiful and bright smile.
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
At Brecksville Dental Excellence, we take pride in not making our patients choose between having a healthy or beautiful smile. By using the latest dental techniques and technology, we’re able to offer you both! Our metal-free crowns are made from durable, protective materials that are customized to flawlessly blend with the rest of your smile. In addition to repairing damaged teeth, our crowns can also be used to refine undersized or otherwise imperfect teeth to create a more uniform smile.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
If you have a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth, cosmetic bonding is a fast, cost-effective way to repair it. Using a biocompatible composite resin (the same resin used for tooth-colored fillings), Dr. Saleh will rebuild the broken-off portion of your tooth. He’ll use a color-matching chart to make sure that the shade of the resin matches your natural tooth enamel, allowing you to enjoy a refreshed smile.
Are you tired of wasting your money on store-bought teeth whitening kits that haven’t provided you with the results that they promise on the packaging? If so, safe and effective professional teeth whitening at Brecksville Dental Excellence is perfect for you. We offer in-office and customized, take-home teeth whitening that uses highly concentrated ingredients that can break apart even the most stubborn dental stains.
Countless patients come to us wanting to make their smile more proportional, showing less of their gum tissue and more of their teeth. We offer laser gum recontouring to reshape your gumline and make your smile more aesthetically pleasing. Thanks to our advanced soft tissue dental laser, you won’t have to worry about us using a scalpel or sutures. This device emits a concentrated beam of light that precisely and gently removes excess tissue and cauterizes the area on-contact, minimizing bleeding while drastically reducing recovery time.
Virtual Smile Design
Is the one thing that’s keeping you from investing in a cosmetic dental treatment the fact that you won’t be able to see the results you’re paying for until after you receive treatment? We can use Virtual Smile Design technology to develop a lifelike, digital blueprint of your mouth and create a mock-up of what you'll look like after receiving one of our cosmetic services. This means that you'll be able to see the results before you make the decision to invest in a treatment, eliminating any anxiety or concerns you may have.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you are not 100% happy with the smile you see in the mirror, you could likely benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Every person’s motivations for choosing cosmetic treatment will vary depending on their unique needs and goals. If you want whiter teeth, for example, you will likely discover that over-the-counter whitening products cannot get rid of deep stains on your teeth. Professional teeth whitening, however, can definitely get the job done! Meanwhile, dental chips or cracks can expose the center of a teeth to dangerous bacteria. If you have a damaged tooth, you may benefit from a crown or veneers. Of course, the only way to definitively know whether you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry is to schedule an initial consultation with a cosmetic dentist in Brecksville.
How Do I Choose a Cosmetic Dentist?
The American Dental Association (ADA) doesn’t actually recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty, so any dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist. This can make it tricky when it comes to determining which dentist has right skills and experience to meet your smile needs. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you search for a cosmetic dentist:
- What have past patients said? Check out a dentist’s reviews, specifically those regarding cosmetic treatments.
- Does the dentist use advanced technology? State-of-the-art equipment and software like virtual smile design lets patients preview their cosmetic results before starting treatment.
- What payment options are available? Since cosmetic dentistry is rarely covered by insurance, you may want to choose a dentist with other payment options, such as CareCredit financing.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
How long the results of your new and improved smile last will depend on which cosmetic treatments you’ve completed. In general, more extensive treatments like veneers tend to last longer than quick and easy treatments, such as teeth whitening and direct bonding. Meanwhile, gum recontouring almost always produces permanent results since gum tissue doesn’t grow back. Regardless of which treatment you choose, the better you care for your oral health, the longer you can likely expect your results to last. Good oral hygiene includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting a cosmetic dentist in Brecksville every six months for a checkup.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Worth It?
Countless patients have remarked on how their daily lives have significantly improved thanks to cosmetic dentistry. They feel more attractive and confident, and that self-esteem in turn has a positive impact on their personal, social, and even professional lives. If you’re confident in your smile, you’ll naturally smile more often, giving the impression that you’re a friendlier person. People will flock toward your positivity, leading to more meaningful relationships. In fact, it may even lead to meeting your new best friend or the love of your life! Scientific research backs up the anecdotal evidence: a study by Kelton Global found that white and straight teeth are often associated with the idea that a person is attractive, in good health, friendly, smart, and successful in their career.
