“Every Family Deserves A Beautiful Smile”
Arguably, the best-case scenario during your trip to the dentist is cosmetic dentistry or, in other words, dentistry designed to enhance your smile.
When we look at ourselves in the mirror, or when other people meet us – teeth are often the first thing they notice. When our teeth are broken, missing or not as white as they could be, we tend to become self-conscious. We smile less often as a result.
The good news is that through cosmetic dentistry, your mouth can look and feel beautiful again; more importantly, you’ll smile more and friends and family will take notice of your increased self-confidence.
Meet Dr. Axelrad
Our dentists offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures for kids, adults and seniors. We can fix stained teeth – even stains that sometimes occur as a side effect of the drug tetracycline. We can close gaps between front teeth if that isn’t the “look” you desire, make chipped and broken teeth look like new, eliminate overly “gummy” smiles and of course, replace missing teeth.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Simply put, Bonding is the placement of white filling material (composite resin) onto a tooth’s surface for the purpose of repairing a crack / fracture or enhancing the appearance of your teeth.
It can help to repair and enhance your appearance by closing gaps between teeth and fix teeth that are chipped, broken, stained, or cracked.
Please read the following blogs to get the scoop on dental bonding: “Composite Resin… Also Known as White Filling Material” and “Dental Bonding, questions and answers.”
Porcelain Crowns are placed on teeth that may have overly large fillings, have had root canal treatment or are not aesthetically pleasing. Crowns can be made up entirely of porcelain which provides superior aesthetics.
A thin layer of porcelain is bonded onto prepared tooth structure in order to protect damaged areas and improve their appearance. To learn more about the benefits of porcelain veneers, please read “Porcelain Veneers: They’re Not Just For Floors.”
Gum reshaping is primarily a periodontal (gum) procedure which is done in order to improve one’s appearance.
It involves sculpting and reshaping your gum line in order to create the look of longer or more symmetrical teeth. You may want to consider gum reshaping if your gums rest too high or too low on your teeth.
You may be a candidate for dental implants if one or more of your teeth are missing.
Dental implants work by replacing a missing tooth (a front or back tooth) with a titanium implant. The titanium implant forms an irreversible bond with the bone, thereby replacing the root of the tooth. They are a predictable and long term solution in replacing a tooth. For more information on dental implants, please see our blog “Dental Implants….A Great Solution for a Missing Tooth.”
Tooth re-contouring involves removing small amounts of tooth structure in order to change their length, shape or feel. It can improve your appearance by adding more harmony and balance to your smile.
Dental (teeth) Whitening:
We offer at-home bleaching kits. Here is how it works:
Impressions are taken of the upper and lower dentition, moulds are poured up and dental bleaching trays are fabricated. A specialized bleach solution is placed into the trays which the individual wears in their mouth in the morning and at night for approximately one half hour. This is generally carried out for a period of 10-12 days in the comfort of your own home.
