When you think of a great time, what comes to mind? For many people, they probably jump to summer, when vacations and relaxation make a whole season fun. Others think of getting away for a winter wonderland vacation. All of the fun times and family gatherings can make some of us self-conscious about our smiling faces in these pictures and memories, which may get you thinking about ways to improve your smile. After all, we all want to look our best. When you want to reshape and refine your smile, cosmetic dentistry is the way to go.
If you’re worried about if you might want to have cosmetic dentistry, think of cosmetic dentistry around holidays: Easter brunches, Memorial Day cookouts, and Fourth of July parties all provide a reason to smile. Use cosmetic dentistry to make sure your pearly whites are looking their best.

What is cosmetic dentistry?
Almost every dentist is trained in general dentistry, meaning they have the ability to provide basic and preventive procedures to protect patients’ oral health. Cosmetic dentists undergo additional training to teach them the best methods available to significantly impact both the look and health of your teeth, including any of the following:
- Replace missing teeth
- Improve abnormal bites
- Fill in gaps between teeth
- Repair broken or decayed teeth
- Whiten and brighten natural teeth
- Update past dental treatments with new technology and materials
Cosmetic dentistry works well with teeth that are damaged in any way. Dr. Nazir can help patients if their teeth are:
Many minor issues may benefit from bonding, a procedure that effectively covers the damaged part of the tooth and gives the appearance of a healthy tooth in its place. For the most severe issues, dental implants may be the most suitable solution.
Popular cosmetic dentistry procedures that Dr. Nazir performs include:
Veneers are custom porcelain shells placed over your tooth to change the color or shape of the tooth. Dr. Nazir uses them to address issues like:
- Tooth size and shape
- Crooked or gapped teeth
The lab-made veneers we use last longer than bonding and require no further care. In addition to cosmetic benefits, veneers also improve the structure and strength of your teeth and mouth. They’re a great solution that last for years to come.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most economic ways to upgrade your smile. At-home kits can certainly add some brightness to your smile, but Dr. Nazir is able to achieve levels of whitening you simply can’t reach with over-the-counter products. She uses Opalescence® and Zoom® teeth whitening systems to give patients fast, painless, and long-lasting treatments that are sure to wow on any holiday.
