Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a method of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of your mouth, teeth, and smile. Dr. Ahmed utilizes many techniques to treat your discolored, chipped, misshapen, or missing teeth.

What are common cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Typical cosmetic dentistry procedures include veneers, implants, Invisalign® alignment, teeth whitening, and more.

Dental veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells custom-made to fit over your teeth. They help you achieve a beautiful smile while providing strength and resilience like natural tooth enamel. Veneers can fix chipped, stained, and misaligned teeth. They typically last 10-20 years.

Dental implants

Dental implants replace teeth after tooth loss. Dr. Ahmed inserts a small titanium screw into the jaw at the site of the missing tooth, which serves as the support for the crown. This innovative technology allows your replacement tooth to look and function like a real tooth.


Invisalign are practically invisible braces that straighten crooked teeth. Invisalign is clinically-proven to be effective for many kinds of alignment corrections, and your clear aligners are custom-made for you.

Zoom!® In-Office Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures. Zoom In-Office Teeth Whitening is an in-office bleaching process widely known for its ability to quickly brighten discolored teeth. The complete procedure takes about an hour. Zoom incorporates a special light that penetrates the teeth to break up stains and discoloration.

Why get cosmetic dentistry?

Smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance; even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. Although cosmetic dentistry procedures are usually elective, some procedures are restorative.
