Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry involves a wide array of dental procedures to improve the appearance of your teeth. Whether you’re missing teeth or your teeth are discolored, chipped, or crooked; cosmetic dentistry can help. Dr. Lindegren specializes in cosmetic dentistry and customizes your treatment based on your anatomy, oral health, and desired appearance.

At the office, Dr. Lindegren provides a warm, friendly environment where you can feel comfortable getting your teeth whitened or restored. If you’re nervous about dental work, Dr. Lindegren works with you to understand your fears and develop strategies to help you. You may benefit from nitrous oxide — laughing gas — during your treatment or simply need a distraction — like a movie or music — to relax.

What does cosmetic dentistry involve?

Cosmetic dentistry is customizable based on your needs and aesthetic goals. Dr. Lindegren provides:

Teeth whitening

Using in-office and professional-grade at-home whitening kits from Zoom or Opalescence Boost, you can reveal a smile up to four shades whiter.


Chipped, broken, cracked, and stained teeth can be repaired with natural-looking bonds that cover imperfections to give you smooth, well-shaped teeth.


Thin, custom-made veneers can cover the front of your teeth to hide imperfections like gaps, chips, abnormal shapes, and discoloration.

Enamel shaping

Enamel shaping involves gently removing and contouring the enamel on your teeth and applying bonds to improve the appearance of your teeth.


Dental implants provide a permanent solution for one or more missing teeth and can fill in gaps, so you have a full smile again.


Braces can help you or your child improve the alignment and orientation of your teeth. Dr. Lindegren provides expert orthodontic referrals to help you get straighter teeth if needed.

What happens during a cosmetic dentistry consultation?

During your consultation, you’ll discuss your dental concerns with Dr. Lindegren and describe how you’d like to improve your smile. She then performs a thorough dental exam — including X-rays and photos, if needed — to determine if you can benefit from various procedures. With this information, she recommends which dental procedures are best for you and your goals.

Dr. Lindegren then explains how the procedures work, how long they take, and what you can expect afterward. Some solutions provide immediate results, whereas others may require a number of visits over a period of months or a year.
