Cosmetic Dentistry

Feeling self-conscious about your smile? You’re not alone! The good news is that cosmetic dentistry can dramatically transform your teeth and gums – and your confidence. 

In addition to providing a confidence boost, cosmetic dental procedures can even improve both oral and physical health. And the best part? Most procedures require just one visit to your dentist’s office and offer immediate improvements to the appearance of your teeth and gums.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth can begin to discolor over time, often as a result of habits like smoking or drinking too much caffeine. Say goodbye to stains and discoloration with our professional teeth whitening treatments. We can brighten even heavily-stained teeth for beautiful results! Whatever level of whitening you desire, we can help you unlock a brilliantly white smile.


Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to change their color, size, or shape. These shells are usually made from porcelain or composite materials, both of which are long-lasting and look great. Veneers can improve your appearance, while removing minimal tooth structure during a procedure. They’re perfect for a patient with stained or misaligned teeth.

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.
