Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Our Boynton Beach, FL dental office offers cosmetic dentistry services for those looking to improve their smile. Some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer include:

Dental Implants
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed directly into the jawbone. On top of this screw, a crown is placed to replace the missing tooth. It also restores function and appearance instantly.

Invisalign uses tooth movement to straighten teeth and create a beautiful-looking smile you love.

Teeth Whitening

When your teeth are discolored or stained, our cosmetic dentist can use teeth whitening products to help you achieve your desired whiteness.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

This dental bonding is used to help the natural teeth naturally blend with these fillings. They can be used on short or small teeth or for older amalgam silver fillings.


These extremely thin porcelain pieces are bonded to the front of the teeth. They are custom-made for each patient according to dimensions, contour, shape, and color. They can be used to treat small teeth, spaces between teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps, discoloration, or rotated teeth, to name a few instances. We also offer lumineers, an even thinner veneer type, which allows more of the existing tooth structure to remain intact.

Ultimately, a cosmetic dentist will use a combination of different procedures to create each patient’s ideal smile. Before the process begins, a Smile Design will be created to help you achieve your dream smile.

Preparing For A Cosmetic Dentistry Visit

The first step to a smile makeover with cosmetic dentistry is a thorough exam with Dr. Eriks. During this visit, you should discuss your goals for your smile, express any concerns about the process, and ask any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry. We will create a Smile Design together, which will show you simulated pictures of what your smile with look like throughout the smile makeover process.

What Happens During Your Visit?

During your visit, a thorough dental exam will be performed. Any existing dental issues must be addressed before cosmetic dentistry procedures can begin. There are many things that Dr. Eriks must consider when creating a smile with Smile Design, including:

  • The curvature of the lips
  • How the teeth look smiling, speaking, laughing, and still

  • Facial dimensions
  • Facial muscles
  • Alignment of the teeth on your face

Smile Design allows for changes to be made along the way. Because of the simulated pictures, there are no surprises with expectations either.
