Your smile is an important part of your overall appearance – in fact, many studies show that it’s the first thing others notice about you when meeting. If you are unhappy with the image it’s projecting because of crooked teeth, gaps, stains, chips, cracks, or other noticeable flaws, consider undergoing a cosmetic consultation here at Legacy Family Dental to explore your options for treatment.
Dr. Todd McConnell has attended countless continuing education courses throughout his career at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute and other various dental conferences, and his artistry and attention to detail when it comes to aesthetic-based dentistry is truly one of a kind. He will always take the time to ensure that your smile improvements are a perfect match for your facial shape, your personal preferences, and your budget.

Porcelain veneers are extremely thin dental restorations – they may also be referred to as “shells.” They are designed this way so that they can cover just the front surfaces of requested teeth in a way that appears natural to the eye. This cosmetic technique is often ideal for patients who want to make several changes to their smile’s appearance at once instead of undergoing a series of appointments and treatments. The veneer’s porcelain structure, in addition to being very attractive, is also durable enough to resist staining as well.
If you’re in need of a dental crown to correct a badly decayed or incomplete tooth, there are aesthetic options available that will help you maintain a confident, natural-looking smile. Dr. McConnell offers metal-free ceramic that is an extremely precise match for your tooth enamel – it even reflects light in the same way! The biocompatible structure is also comfortable within the mouth and shouldn’t cause any harmful sensitivity/allergic reactions.
Even small cosmetic flaws may prove distracting for patients in photos or while they’re getting ready in front of the bathroom mirror. If you want to make a small, but important change to your smile’s natural glow, direct bonding could be the best choice. This procedure only takes a single appointment in most cases, during which Dr. McConnell will place a small amount of tooth-colored composite resin on the tooth and sculpt it into a subtle, aesthetically pleasing shape that hides the flaw from view. The improvement should last for several years with the help of regular checkups and diligent oral hygiene at home.
