Knowing that you have a great smile makes you feel confident about how you look and how others see you. A bright smile exudes health and self-assuredness, which helps in everything from meeting new people and doing work presentations to performing daily activities.

Cosmetic dentistry can help to fix teeth that are cracked, pitted, gapped, discolored, or even missing. Let’s talk about some of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures performed today, and where you can go for world-class dentistry right here in greater Fort Lauderdale.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments that Help Boost Confidence

To really bring out those pearly whites, here are some cosmetic dentistry options to enhance your gorgeous smile:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth discoloration is caused by many factors, such as coffee, tea, smoking, and even just the normal aging process. With Zoom Whitening, you can achieve a bright white set of teeth in less than an hour at the dentist’s office.

This cosmetic dentistry treatment uses a whitening gel with hydrogen peroxide as its active ingredient. Once applied, the gel is exposed to a special light, which helps it penetrate the tooth’s surface. Zoom whitens your teeth up to eight shades lighter!


Whereas braces have always been used to correct crooked or crowded teeth, more people now (including and especially adults) are getting custom-molded and invisible aligners called Invisalign. People will not even notice that you are wearing these teeth straighteners. You can now have an enhanced smile for professional and personal reasons.

The average course of this treatment takes about a year, with adjustments and checkups every 6 to 8 weeks. Invisalign is removable, so you can experience less hassle when eating, brushing, and flossing as compared to traditional braces.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have chipped, pitted, or gapped teeth, dental veneers may be your best solution. These are thin shells of high-grade porcelain which are custom-made to cover the front of the teeth. They are placed permanently by your dentist, so they are maintained along with and exactly like the rest of your regular teeth.

Porcelain veneers hide dental imperfections so that you can flash that beautiful smile again. They are also resistant to staining or chipping, thanks to their tough and durable composition from porcelain.
