While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person's teeth, mouth and smile.
Cosmetic dentistry may also provide restorative benefits. For example, dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat decayed teeth. Previously, most dental fillings were composed primarily of gold, amalgam and other materials that left visible dark spots on the teeth. Today, dental fillings may fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry, because you can select fillings made of porcelain or composite materials that closely match the color of your teeth, thus maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth and smile. Many people have their older fillings replaced with newer, tooth-colored fillings to enhance their oral appearance.
Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.

Dr. Devereux used this technique and veneer type on his sister's veneers 17 years ago and they have been fantastic, trouble free, and beautiful to this day.

Dental Patient: corinneb
Dr. Muraoka was great...a true artist. I had accidentally chipped my 2 front teeth 15 years ago and the composite used to fix them was slapped on in a 5-10 minute procedure. They lasted 13 and 1/2 years, but the attention Dr. Muraoka gave to matching the color of the composite to the rest of my teeth and shaping for general aesthetics was impressive. He created a natural rounded tooth edge as opposed to the slightly concave, squared off, and more masculine appearing tooth shape I had previously been given. He actually shaped the composite He was also aware of the innate accident potential of my bite and recommended the NTI device to help with my nightime clenching and grinding and the fact that I have TMJ problem; therefore the repaired front teeth would be protected from me and my bite. I now have to make sure I don't put the repairs in harm's way. His friendly and relaxed chairside manner was welcome in a dentist's office and he treated his assistant with courtesy and respect as another professional. He was also prepared for the appointment as she was already setting up the composite, and the initial numbing procedure was ready. His shots into my upper gum, usually more painful, were gentle. Absolutely no pain. Sincerely, Brie
