What Cosmetic Issues Can We Correct?

There are many cosmetic issues we can help with. Here’s a list of some of the most common reasons patients seek cosmetic dentistry:

  • Missing teeth or gaps between teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth

Are you looking for a smile transformation? Come on in for a consultation with Dr. Cara Schantz and she can guide you on the best path toward your goals. Here are just a few of the many cosmetic dental solutions we offer:

Teeth Whitening

For a radiant smile that lights up the room, our teeth whitening services are second to none. We provide:

  • In-Office Whitening: Fast and effective, for immediate results.
  • Take-Home Kits: Professional-grade options for your convenience.

Brighten your smile safely under our expert guidance and witness the dramatic difference it makes.


Regain the comfort and confidence of a natural smile with our custom-designed dentures. We offer:

  • Full Dentures: To replace all of your teeth with a natural look and comfortable fit.
  • Partial Dentures: For a seamless blend with existing teeth, filling in gaps with precision.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Combining stability and ease for a worry-free smile.

Our team ensures that your new dentures feel as good as they look, providing you with both functionality and aesthetics.


Dive into the world of veneers at CNS Dental, where a flawless smile is not just a dream. Our services include:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Durable and stain-resistant, tailored to fit your smile.
  • Composite Veneers: A conservative option that’s both effective and economical.

We customize each set of veneers to your individual needs, promising a smile that’s both beautiful and uniquely you.

Cosmetic Bonding

Repair chips, gaps, and minor imperfections in a single visit with cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic bonding is similar to veneers but is more often used to correct chipped or otherwise damaged teeth, rather than stained teeth. We apply a small amount of liquid resin to the affected area, which can then be shaped and molded like putty to fit your tooth, revitalizing your smile for years to come.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring, also known as gingivoplasty, involves the surgical reshaping of gum tissue. In the case of a “gummy” smile or uneven gum line, excess gum tissue can be removed or reshaped around the teeth, creating a more proportionate smile.

Another reason one might undergo gum contouring? Excess gum tissue can make it difficult to properly clean teeth, increasing the risk of gum disease. Reshaping the gums makes it easier to maintain excellent oral hygiene.

Do you think you might have periodontal disease? Dr. Changi is a periodontist at CNS Dental who specializes in treating patients with gum disease. Dr. Changi will put together a comprehensive treatment plan for you to restore your gums to complete health!

Tooth Contouring

Also known as dental reshaping, tooth contouring is a quick and painless way to refine your smile. This minimally invasive procedure can sculpt or reshape uneven edges, small chips, or slight overlaps. The process involves a gentle reshaping of the enamel, often without the need for anesthesia.
