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:

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: 

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

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.
