At Dental Care of Indiana, we know that cosmetic dentistry has the power to improve your confidence and self-esteem. After all, your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. Cosmetic dentistry can help you make a great first impression by taking care of teeth that are stained, misshapen, cracked, chipped, have gaps and more.
Tell us your concerns, we’ll provide a complete evaluation and devise the best plan to enhance your smile. We’ll review the pros and cons of various procedures. For example, should you have a whitening treatment or porcelain veneers to brighten your discolored teeth? Both are options and the dentist will help you understand which would work best for your specific needs.

Teeth can become stained from coffee, tea, foods with tannins, carrots, oranges, smoking and more. Professional tooth whitening is the best way to remove the discoloring of your teeth. In-office teeth whitening has been found to be safer and provide results that last longer than over-the-counter teeth whitening options. After just one session, you will notice your teeth are several shades lighter.
Cosmetic tooth bonding
This procedure involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to your tooth. Some of the many uses of this procedure include; repairing chipped or cracked teeth, changing the shape of a tooth, and closing the gap between teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used to change the shape, size and or color of the tooth. Not only do veneers improve the look of your teeth, but they can also help preserve your tooth’s enamel.
Dental implants are the perfect way to replace a missing tooth for those who don’t want to get a denture, bridge or crown. Not only will an implant improve your smile by filling in the gap where the tooth is missing, but it can also improve your ability to chew and improve the integrity of your jaw bone.
Cosmetic dentistry can:
Improve your oral health. Often when patients invest in cosmetic dental procedures, they are prompted to do what it takes — brush and floss on a regular basis— to keep their smile beautiful.
Make eating more enjoyable. It can be hard to chew with missing teeth or teeth that are cracked. Patients tell us they didn’t realize the impact their teeth had on their overall happiness.
Make you look younger. Teeth whitening takes years off your smile since teeth naturally darken with age. It’s a wise investment before a job interview.
Is minimally invasive. Many of the procedures we offer can correct dental problems without surgery, saving you valuable time. For patients who receive teeth whitening in-office, you might also be given treatments that can be applied in the comfort of your own home.
Is safe. When performed by professionals, like Dental Care of Indiana, these are safe procedures to repair, reshape and lighten teeth.
