What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations, whitening treatments, and/or orthodontics to enhance your smile. Most cosmetic procedures are elective, so they aren’t covered by insurance. But that doesn't mean they don’t offer medical benefits. For example, straightening your teeth with Invisalign® makes them easier to clean, reducing your risk of cavities.

What are some examples of cosmetic dentistry?

At Glow Dental, Dr. Park offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services, including:


Veneers are shells of composite resin that Dr. Park bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. They cover up minor oral imperfections, like stains, spaces between your teeth, or unusually-shaped teeth. 

Dental implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that Dr. Park inserts into the empty sockets where your permanent teeth used to be. After placement, the implants integrate with your jaw bone, providing a foundation for crowns or implant-supported dentures. 

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening uses medical-grade solutions, like hydrogen peroxide gel, to remove stains from your teeth. At Glow Dental, Dr. Park offers several types of teeth whitening, including in-office professional teeth whitening and take-home teeth-whitening trays.

In-office teeth whitening can eliminate years of discoloration in less than an hour, while take-home teeth-whitening trays enable you to complete cosmetic dentistry conveniently at home.


Dr. Park might recommend Invisalign if you have crowded teeth or a misaligned jaw. Invisalign uses removable plastic mouthpieces to address alignment problems. You wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to brush and floss or eat. The aligners put pressure on your teeth and jaw, slowly improving their position.

Cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding repairs enamel damage, such as chips, cracks, or pitting. At Glow Dental, Dr. Park performs cosmetic bonding with tooth-colored composite resin. The resin blends in with your smile and looks completely natural.

What type of cosmetic dentistry might benefit me?

Only an experienced dentist, like Dr. Park, can determine the type of cosmetic dentistry that will most benefit you. After an oral exam, a series of digital X-rays, and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Park makes custom treatment recommendations.

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, Dr. Park may prescribe orthodontics with Invisalign. If you’ve lost one or more permanent teeth to extractions, she might recommend dental implants.
