A perfectly beautiful smile can improve the overall impression that you make on other people, and this can have a great impact on your personal and professional life. On the other hand, if your smile is unattractive, others may view you differently. For example, you may be perceived as someone who has poor personal hygiene practices. You may also feel self-conscious about the way that you look, and this can also impact the way that you present yourself to others.


Oral health issues are often more than cosmetic. Issues with crooked, misshapen or misaligned teeth can also affect the way that you speak and eat. You may also have trouble properly cleaning and caring for your teeth. At Davis and Dingle, we offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry services can that can be used to give you a smile that you are proud to show off.


If your primary concern is the color of your teeth, rest assured that there is an easy and effective treatment available. Staining, yellowing or general discoloration of your teeth can be bothersome for you to look at, and it can also impact how others view you when you smile or talk. Discoloration may be caused by lifestyle factors, such as smoking or drinking dark-colored beverages. It can also be caused by age and many other factors. Regardless of the cause of your discolored teeth, you can improve their appearance easily with professional whitening services completed in our office.


While there are at-home whitening treatments, you may discover that these home kits require regular efforts and still only produce minimal results. Our professional whitening treatment can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter in only a couple of fast appointments. If the color of your teeth is your primary concern, rest assured that we can remove any signs of discoloration quickly to give your the pristine smile that you desire.



In order to have the beautiful smile that you want, you need all of your teeth in place. However, tooth loss is unfortunately common. It can be caused by poor oral hygiene, a sports injury, a car accident and many other issues. Regardless of what has caused your tooth loss situation, you understandably want to find an effective way to address this issue and to fill your smile with lovely, healthy teeth.


We offer several cosmetic dentistry solutions to effectively resolve this situation. For example, we can create full or partial dentures that look like your actual teeth. A bridge is another solution that is available if you are missing three or more teeth in a row. This is an excellent solution that improves your cosmetic appearance and that also can maintain facial and oral health. Tooth replacement can also be completed through an implant. With a dental implant, a new tooth that looks precisely like the lost tooth is surgically installed in your tooth to give you a permanent replacement.



Some people are self-conscious about the shape or placement of their teeth. For example, you may have a chipped or jagged tooth, and you may be looking for a smart and simple way to improve the look of this teeth. You may even have multiple teeth that are damaged or unattractive in some way. At Davis and Dingle, we have an effective solution for this common problem through veneers.

Porcelain veneers are specifically crafted to take on the shape, size and color of a beautiful tooth. It creates a natural look in your mouth. This solution is ideal for addressing discoloration, chips and other irregularities.


If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, you may think that the only way to improve this issue is with metallic braces. Metallic braces are common, and they can produce straight, aligned teeth. This can improve your cosmetic appearance, and it can also make it easier to properly clean your teeth regularly. However, many people are turned off by the thought of wearing metal braces for a year or two. A great alternative that produces effective results is Invisalign.


Invisalign uses customized plastic trays to gradually move your teeth. You typically will replace your tray weekly, and each tray makes a subtle change in your teeth’s location in comparison to the previous tray. The end result is beautiful, straight teeth, and this is achieved without the need to wear metal braces.



Some people have a specific issue that they are concerned with, such as discoloration or a chipped tooth. Others have more extensive issues with their teeth. Regardless of the current condition of your teeth, it is possible to improve the look, health and function of your teeth through mouth restoration work.


Full mouth restoration services are customized to fit your needs. This can improve filling cavities, descaling services, the use of Invisalign or veneers and more.
