Cosmetic dentistry

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. Most think of tooth whitening or veneers when cosmetic dentistry comes to mind, but a cosmetic dentist can provide much more.

A skilled, experienced cosmetic dentist can help to improve your appearance, your smile, even your self-esteem, and confidence. Today, cosmetic dentistry has continued to evolve to where cosmetic dentists can address functional and esthetic patient concerns.

What We Believe

Drs Becker and Liggett are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and stand for the practice of responsible esthetics. We believe that cosmetic dentistry must complement the overall general and oral health of the patient, and do no harm. So we strongly encourage treatment decisions based on the foundation of evidence-based protocols combined with sound clinical judgment. AACD also strongly encourages that the cosmetic dentist integrates interdisciplinary medical and dental treatment to enhance outcomes and minimize the loss of healthy human tissue. That means as AACD member dentists, we provide minimally invasive treatment protocols, when and where appropriate, and ensure they are consistent with the long-term health and needs of the patient. Finally, we encourage the use of innovation in technology and materials to deliver dentistry that is predictable and long lasting.
