While a traditional dentist treats and prevents problems that could lead to dental deterioration and disease, a cosmetic dentist provides treatments that improve the appearance of your teeth and gums. Many cosmetic procedures also improve your overall dental health, but their main purpose is to restore or create symmetry and give your smile a healthy, natural appearance. Today’s cosmetic dentists employ new technology and methods that preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible which makes your cosmetic restorations look more natural and last longer.

- Upper complete dentures utilize the hard palate (top of your mouth) to perform adhesion utilizing the suction in the likes of two pieces of wet glass stuck together. Offering implant placements on upper cases can help with pt’s still needing that extra support
- Lower complete dentures utilize a thin ridge and have no retention. They have their place. Dr. Berry highly recommends/requires utilizing implants to help retain a complete lower denture.
- Upper partial and Lower partial dentures utilize existing teeth to help retain the removable prosthesis in your mouth. Highly affordable and a great alternative for people missing a few teeth and want to smile again!
Oral Surgery usually involves invasive procedures.
Majority of the time involves removal of dentition (teeth).
Impacted teeth removal. If teeth do not emerge out of the gums like they are supposed to, they can cause problems such as crowding, infections or diseased tissue. However, this can be fixed with a simple tooth extraction. Your dentist, or in some cases, your orthodontist, will monitor your mouth and recommend if any misaligned or crowded teeth should be removed to preserve the full integrity of your mouth.
Wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are very commonly removed because many jaws are not large enough to accommodate them. If they do not grow in properly, they can cause infections, swelling, and shifting of other teeth. Learn more about wisdom teeth removal.
Improve fit of dentures. Sometimes dentures can fit uncomfortably if a jaw has irregularities and is lacking support of the dentures.
Dental implants are tooth root substitutes placed in the jawbone. Artificial teeth are then attached to the substitute root, which is actually a titanium rod. Dental implants are an option to replace one tooth, several teeth, or even all of your teeth.

Professional whitening treatments are the most effective at removing stains on tooth enamel caused by smoking and consumption of certain foods and drinks, including coffee, tea, soda, and wine. However, certain types of tooth discoloration, such as tetracycline stains, discoloration caused by overexposure to fluoride, and advanced decay, are not susceptible to teeth whitening gels. In addition, professional whitening will not lighten dental restoration materials (crowns, veneers, bridges, and fillings). Lastly, professional whitening isn’t permanent, and you will need touch-up whitening treatments to maintain your sparkling smile. This can be performed in our office or with our at-home treatment.
