At Maplewood Dental Associates, our mission is to help our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles through comprehensive dental treatment. We're proud to provide a wide range of treatments ranging from preventive care to comprehensive restorative dentistry at our office, but in addition to maintaining the health and function of your smile, we strongly believe that everyone deserves to love the look of their smile, as well. That's why we offer a variety of cosmetic dental treatments – and while you may not have considered cosmetic dentistry, we can use it to eliminate a number of common dental problems. 

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Treat?

As a full-service dental practice serving Maplewood, MN and the surrounding areas, we offer a number of cosmetic dental services ranging from teeth whitening to porcelain veneers. But why would someone want cosmetic dental treatment in the first place? Usually, patients pursue cosmetic dentistry because there are issues in their smile that they no longer want to have to live with. Here are a few of the most common:

  • Discoloration: Stained, yellowed, or otherwise discolored teeth can severely impact the appearance of your smile, but we can eliminate stains and dramatically lighten teeth with teeth whitening treatment.
  • Chips & Cracks: Many people simply learn to live with minor cracks or chips in teeth, but this isn't necessary. In fact, it can be dangerous, as cracks often get worse over time. We can use cosmetic treatment to repair these issues and restore your smile to complete health. 
  • Misshapen Teeth: If your teeth aren't shaped correctly or have other structural anomalies, cosmetic dentistry can correct them.
  • Alignment Problems: While more severe malocclusions require full orthodontic treatment, we can use cosmetic dental procedures to treat minor tooth alignment problems like gaps in teeth or crookedness.
