Remake Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Monroe has the knowledge and experience to restore or remake your smile. From missing or discolored, chipped teeth to more procedure-intensive dental issues, Dr. Monroe can offer you a variety of options to remake your smile.
When the bacteria in your mouth feed on the particles of sugar and starch that remain in your mouth after eating, they produce an acidic byproduct that eats away tooth enamel. Cavities form in the tooth enamel and, if left untreated, can harm the sensitive, innermost layers of the tooth (dentin and pulp). In addition to causing significant discomfort and pain, untreated cavities can ultimately lead to more extensive dental work, higher costs, and tooth loss.
Through routine dental visits, Dr. Monroe can detect cavities early and use tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin to create a natural-looking cavity treatment. Instead of an obvious metal filling, tooth-colored fillings offer a natural look and an effective method for repairing cavities and protecting your teeth from further decay.
Maybe you have been putting off seeing a dentist. Perhaps you haven’t found a dentist you particularly like yet. It’s time to take the next step. Set up your appointment with Dr. Monroe. You won’t be disappointed—and your teeth will thank you.
Maintaining a functional and beautiful smile has never been as attainable as it is right now with the current advances in dentistry technology.
Smiling should be a carefree joy, not an everyday preoccupation. If cosmetic concerns are taking the joy out of smiling, Dr. Monroe has your solution: porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are one of cosmetic dentistry’s most versatile dental treatments. Made of translucent porcelain, veneers are durable, wafer-thin shells that are custom-made to cover the surface of your teeth and transform your smile’s radiance, alignment, and overall appearance. Available in over dozen tooth-colored shades, porcelain veneers can be used to effectively correct:

Porcelain Veneer Treatment Process
Porcelain veneers are as effective as they are convenient. Treatment can often be completed in as few as three clinical visits.
Consultation. During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with Dr. Monroe to ask questions, to express concerns, and to share your goals for remaking your smile. Dr. Monroe will then develop a personalized treatment plan that caters to your individual needs and allows you to achieve the transformation you seek.
2. Preparation and Impressions
Dr. Monroe will first gently remove a thin layer of enamel from targeted teeth to make room for your new veneers before taking precise impressions of your upper and lower teeth. Your impressions will be used to custom-craft porcelain veneers that elevate your smile’s aesthetic while preserving your oral health and function.
On the day of your veneer application, your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and lightly etched to optimize fit and finish. After Dr. Monroe has precisely bonded each veneer and made any final adjustments, you’ll leave our office with a radiant, fully-functional smile that you will be confident to share.
Professional Tooth Whitening
