Cosmetic Dentistry

Until recent decades, cosmetic dentistry was associated with celebrities. Modern cosmetic dentistry, however, opens the door for cosmetic treatment to improve the appearance of the smile that fits into every budget and lifestyle.

From teeth whitening to full smile makeovers, Salem Dental offers a full range of treatment procedures to cosmetically enhance your teeth and gums.

Eliminating Stains from Teeth

Professional teeth whitening is far superior when performed by a trusted dentist, like Dr. Seth Huish. Not only can he recommend the proper whitening system, but he will also monitor your progress and ensure that you are healthy enough for teeth whitening.

Custom teeth whitening trays to use at home keep the gel in place, maximizing your results and preventing seepage onto the delicate gum tissue, which leads to sensitivity. After about two weeks of at-home teeth whitening, you can expect a dramatic improvement of 3 to 8 shades depending on the level of staining on your teeth.

Invisalign Invisible Braces

For our older teen and adult patients, we offer a discreet alternative to bracket-and-wire orthodontics. Invisalign gradually moves teeth using a series of clear trays that you can remove to clean your teeth and eat.

If your teeth are misaligned, we often recommend beginning your cosmetic dentistry treatment with Invisalign to improve the alignment of teeth and to make the dental restoration more successful.

Tooth-Colored Dentistry

We create durable, natural-looking tooth-colored restorations including fillings, crowns, and veneers in our Salem, OR dental office.

Replace silver fillings – Over time, amalgam (silver) fillings can cause the entire tooth to look gray. Replacing metal-based dentistry with tooth-colored fillings and crowns can brighten the smile.

Rebuild worn teeth – Chronic teeth grinding, called bruxism, leads to teeth that look short or small. Dr. Huish can design restorations to repair and rebuild worn teeth for reduced pain and sensitivity and a stunning result. 

Restoring the shape and size of teeth will give you results that look beautiful and comfortable jaw joints to make it easier to chew.

Cosmetic bonding – When small chips or irregularities impact your smile, dental bonding is a conservative solution to reshape and repair a tooth in a single appointment in our Salem dental office.

Replace missing teeth – Gaps in the smile are perhaps the most dramatic of our patients’ cosmetic concerns. Dental implants, crowns, dentures, and partial dentures improve both the appearance and nutritional options of our patients.

Smile Makeovers

Do you want dramatic changes to your smile? A full smile makeover combines multiple treatment options for ideal results. Tooth-colored crowns, veneers, teeth whitening, and Invisalign can give you a smile that is red carpet worthy and makes a great impression.
