Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry? 

When you go to Healing Smiles for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, you can expect Dr. Onukwugha to offer you a broad range of services that will improve the shape, position, color, size, and overall appearance of your teeth. 

While cosmetic dentistry can help you whiten and straighten your teeth to revitalize your smile, it can also make cleaning easier and reduce the number of gaps in your smile. 

Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t just stop at aesthetics. Dr. Onukwugha uses her cosmetic dentistry expertise to boost the structure and function of your teeth, improving your overall dental health.

When should I consider cosmetic dentistry? 

When you book an appointment with Dr. Onukwugha, she looks at your overall oral health history, examines your teeth and gums, and discusses your dental goals with you. 

You want to make sure your aesthetic goals fit your overall health, so give Dr. Onukwugha as much information as you can about your dental health history. From there, she personalizes a cosmetic dentistry plan that is suited to meet your unique needs and preferences. 

What services are included in cosmetic dentistry? 

At Healing Smiles, Dr. Onukwugha can offer you any of the following cosmetic dentistry services: 


If you’re an avid coffee or tea drinker, and if your teeth have consequently suffered from staining, Dr. Onukwugha can use Zoom! whitening to put the natural gleam back into your smile. 


At Healing Smiles, Dr. Onukwugha corrects your crooked and misaligned teeth with the highly effective and world-renowned Invisalign treatment, which uses removable aligners to ease you into the perfect smile. 

Dental bonding 

Dental bonding is a highly effective way of improving the shape, color, size, and appearance of your teeth through a comprehensive restoration of color filling. Dr. Onukwugha uses tooth-colored materials that improve the overall function of your teeth too. 


Made from porcelain, veneers are thin shells that Dr. Onukwugha places on the front and sides of your natural teeth to correct any imperfection. 


If your tooth is too damaged for a traditional repair procedure, Dr. Onukwugha might recommend a dental crown. This is a tooth-colored cap that fits directly over your natural teeth.


If you have gaps in your mouth due to missing teeth, Dr. Onukwugha can place bridges to fill in the spaces. Bridges look and feel like natural teeth. 

Dental implants 

Made of titanium, dental implants serve as roots for artificial teeth. These posts are surgically implanted into your jawbone to support dentures, bridges, or crowns. 


There are many different types of dentures. At Healing Smiles, Dr. Onukwugha can suggest implant-supported dentures, removable dentures, overdentures, and immediate dentures to replace multiple missing teeth. 

With Dr. Onukwugha’s expert guidance, you will never have to live with discolored, misshapen, imperfect, or crooked teeth again. Call or click online to book a cosmetic dentistry consultation today.
