Cosmetic dentistry is looked upon by some as something only wealthy people can afford.

The experts at Avalon Dental Center in Somerville, Massachusetts, look upon it as an investment in your health. The benefits you experience today can save you thousands of dollars in problems in the years to come. Besides, you deserve a beautiful smile. At Avalon, our specialty is cosmetic dentistry; and we have many programs available.
Favorite Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Invisalign® is a one of our patients’ favorite cosmetic procedures. It works especially well for teeth that have the following imperfections:
- Spacing issues
- Severely rotated teeth
- Bite irregularities
- Cross bites
- Over bites
Invisalign® plastic teeth aligners are clear (less than one millimeter thick) and can be removed for eating or drinking. In the past, only fixed metal braces were available for correcting these issues. They were painful, bulky and typically stereotyped as a treatment for teenagers. Invisalign® Clear Braces allow adults and teenagers to straighten their teeth without the embarrassment of visible metal.
Lumineers are another exceptional option in cosmetic dentistry today. Super-thin shells of porcelain are attached to existing teeth in brilliant white shades. With Lumineers, your teeth will appear beautiful in shade and form, while still looking very natural. The procedure involves no drilling or shaving of teeth (as is done in traditional veneer methods). Completely painless, fast and sensitivity-free, Lumineers™ last twenty years. Other options for teeth whitening include BriteSmile®, chair-side Opalescence Whitening, and at-home teeth whitening.
With these and many more cosmetic dentistry methods, you can have a beautiful, confident and healthy smile, quickly and affordably. Find out more about our other dental services – such as pediatric and sedation dentistry – or call us to make an appointment.
