What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?


Cosmetic dentistry focuses on your smile's appearance, rather than its health or function. A cosmetic dentist can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, crooked, stained, misshapen, or worn to create a stunning new smile.  

How Our Cosmetic Dentist Can Give You a Beautiful Smile

Whether you're looking to conceal a single cracked tooth or seeking a more comprehensive enhancement, Dr. Kearney will weigh your goals and unique dental needs to suggest the best treatment options for your smile. Some of the most common cosmetic procedures we perform at our Cary, NC, dentistry office are:

  • Dental Bonding                                                   
  • Dental Crowns
  • Gum Contouring
  • Invisalign®
  • Smile Makeover
  • Snap-On Smile®
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Full Mouth Reconstruction

Exploring Your Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Our cosmetic dentist can help you explore a variety of exciting options. Some of the dental procedures you might consider include:

Teeth Whitening

Dr. Kearney offers both in-office and take-home Zoom!® teeth whitening for your comfort and convenience. In-office teeth whitening can offer a smile up to eight shades whiter in a one visit. Our dental office also offers custom-fitted at-home trays and whitening gel that can give you great results in just a few weeks.

Porcelain Veneers

If you want to refine multiple aesthetic areas of your smile, you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers. Veneers can conceal a range of dental imperfections in size, shape, and color. These thin, custom-fitted ceramic shells are attached to the front of your teeth for a natural-looking change.

Gum Contouring

An uneven gum line can make your teeth appear crooked or small. Gum contouring can correct uneven gum lines or smiles with excessive gum tissue. Dr. Kearney performs precise gum contouring to remove excess gum tissue, artistically creating a beautiful gum arch on each tooth.

Dental Bonding

Bonding is an affordable dental treatment used to address minor imperfections, like chips, uneven spacing, or discoloration. In this procedure, Dr. Kearney applies tooth-colored composite resin that matches the patient's tooth color for more natural-looking results.

Snap-On Smile

Snap-On Smile® is a cost-effective treatment option with an instant transformation. It can be an alternative to doing multiple dental treatments at once. Each removable Snap-On Smile® is custom-fitted from hypoallergenic resin and snaps on gently over your upper or lower teeth.

Consider Dental Crowns For Both Cosmetic and Restorative Needs

Our dentist places dental crowns, lifelike "caps" that fit over a tooth. They are used to refine crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, stained teeth, and teeth with other cosmetic concerns.

Crowns have many uses in cosmetic dentistry, but they can also be part of a restorative treatment plan. Crowns provide protection for damaged teeth, helping preserve the tooth structure. If you have lost a tooth or teeth, our dentist can fill in the gaps in your smile using a combination of dental implants and crowns.

Dental implants offer a versatile ingredient when crafting new smiles. They serve as artificial tooth roots, which can keep your jawbone structure intact even after tooth loss. Plus, dental implants can secure a variety of restorations to match your needs, including crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Our Dentist Can Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign

You can have straight teeth without bulky metal braces. Dr. Kearney uses Invisalign clear aligners to gently straighten teeth. They are discreet and can be removed while eating, brushing, or flossing. Visit our dentistry practice to see if you're a candidate.

Revitalize Your Smile With Full Mouth Reconstruction

After experiencing extensive dental trauma or decay, you may worry that you'll never get your smile back. Full mouth reconstruction can put those fears to rest.

Our dentist, Dr. Kearney, can create a custom plan designed around your unique needs. He can combine treatments like dental implants, dentures, and bone grafting to build a gorgeous and functional smile.

If you have a certain dental problem that has led to your current situation, like TMJ disorder, he may be able to address the root cause, too.

Difficulty eating, speaking, and smiling doesn't need to cast a shadow on your everyday life any longer. Our cosmetic dentist can restore your smile. It all starts with a full mouth reconstruction consultation.
