Essenmacher Family Dental

Cosmetic Dentistry

Have you ever wanted to improve the appearance of your smile? It’s natural in today’s highly connected world to want to look and feel your best. For many patients, having a beautiful smile seems out of reach, but you might be surprised to learn that today’s dental technology offers a wide range of options for every budget and lifestyle.

Cosmetic Dentistry Evaluation

We welcome open communication from our patients and will strive to meet your goals for your health and appearance. Dr. Lindsay Essenmacher invites you to our Albuquerque, NM dental office for a comprehensive dental exam followed by a consultation to discuss options that will give you the smile of your dreams.

From simple procedures such as professional teeth whitening and cosmetic dental bonding to complex treatment plans that include veneers, porcelain crowns, or a full smile makeover, at Essenmacher Family Dental, we offer the full range of cosmetic treatment options.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Perhaps you have tried an over-the-counter teeth whitening product. If so, you have probably had mixed results. Over-the-counter products can be unpredictable and difficult to use. Custom whitening systems, like the one we offer in our dental office, provide fewer side effects and exceptional results. 

We begin by taking impressions of your teeth. Using those impressions, we create custom whitening trays for you to use at home. We give you enough professional strength whitening gel to help you achieve an 8–10 shade improvement and give you personalized instructions to help you avoid side effects such as sensitivity.

Teeth whitening is always more effective under the supervision of a dentist. Additionally, you will keep your trays for future touch-ups so that your smile always looks its best.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you have small flaws in your smile such as chips or gaps between your teeth, we may be able to improve your appearance with cosmetic dental bonding. Using the same composite material we use for fillings, we determine a matching shade and add to your existing tooth structure.

Because it is easy, affordable, non-invasive, and can be done in one visit, cosmetic dental bonding is great for patients wanting to make small changes to their teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are looking to make dramatic changes to the appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers may be an option for you. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over your existing tooth structure to give you a whole new look. They even allow us to address misalignment concerns, making your teeth appear straight. Dr. Essenmacher will design the size, shape, and color of your veneers to look both natural and beautiful!

Smile Makeovers

If your smile shows signs of wear or if you have a number of concerns about the way you look, a full smile makeover can address a wide variety of cosmetic issues. Dr. Essenmacher will sit down with you and discuss your goals for your appearance. She can incorporate a wide variety of restorative and cosmetic options to give you the beautiful outcome you deserve.

Call Us to Schedule an Exam

Even if you are just considering cosmetic dentistry, we encourage you to give us a call. Dr. Essenmacher can provide a comprehensive exam for our patients prior to having work done, in order to offer the best guidance on their cosmetic options. Our friendly and professional team looks forward to working with you to achieve a comfortable, functional, and beautiful smile!
