What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that will improve the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. It involves having one or more elective procedures completed to change certain aspects of your smile.
In most cases, the procedures help improve tooth color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth or a single tooth. However, some procedures also focus on the gums and fine lines around the smile. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to create a more attractive and confident smile. Your Storts Family Dentist will also consider the overall oral health and function of your teeth.
Common Reasons Patients Seek Cosmetic Dentistry
Patients seek cosmetic dentistry for various reasons. The primary motivation seems to be the desire to have a better-looking smile. Many minor dental concerns do not affect your oral health but can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. Some of these concerns include stained teeth, chipped teeth, gaps in between teeth, and crooked teeth.
The cosmetic treatments we offer can address these problems and more. This will help boost your self-confidence, positively affecting your social and professional life. Our diverse range of cosmetic dentistry treatment options will help you achieve a smile that will align with your personal goals and lifestyle.

Botox, Xeomin, and Fillers
We offer Botox, Xeomin, and fillers in our Ardmore, OK dental office. Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that we inject into facial muscles. It temporarily improves the look of both moderate fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is quick and does not always require a consultation prior to treatment.
Xeomin®️ is created through a unique precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the unnecessary proteins that don’t play an active role in treatment. Xeomin®️ is a uniquely purified neurotoxin.
Cosmetic fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, and soften creases or enhance facial contours. Filler injections are non-surgical and typically completed during an office visit. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation, during which you will meet with your cosmetic surgeon to discuss your concerns and goals. To see how skin enhancements like Botox and other facial fillers can help create a perfect smile, see Botox and Dermal Fillers.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells that adhere to the front surface of teeth. We craft ours from porcelain to mimic the natural appearance of teeth. Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of healthy, natural teeth to improve their aesthetic appeal. They are very durable, easy to replace, and are not easily stained.
Porcelain veneers are versatile and can address many types of dental cosmetic concerns. Storts Family Dentistry often uses them to address discoloration, chips, gaps, misalignment, and more. They provide a durable and natural solution for patients who want a better looking smile. This popular cosmetic dentistry procedure requires minimal tooth reduction and provides long-lasting results. To learn more about the porcelain veneer process, see Porcelain Veneers.
Tooth bonding offers an instant, affordable smile makeover. This cosmetic dentistry procedure involves using a tooth-colored resin material and applying it to the front surface of your teeth. Your dentist will mold the material by hand into the proper shape. They will then use a special light to bond the resin to the tooth’s surface.
This technique is used to repair or enhance the appearance of teeth with minor imperfections. Storts Family Dentistry often suggests teeth bonding to repair chips, cracks, discoloration, or gaps. It is very versatile and minimally invasive. Your Storts Family dentist can complete it in a single visit to one of our offices.
Dental bonding is known for its natural look and feel. This makes it an effective option for cosmetic improvements without the need for more extensive dental work. This is a great option for our patients who need a quick and aesthetically pleasing smile enhancement. To learn more about the pros and cons of tooth bonding, see Teeth Bonding.
If you want to brighten your smile, we offer several tooth whitening treatments. Our in-office, professional teeth whitening treatment is a quick, easy, and painless. During this teeth whitening treatment, we apply the whitening gel to your teeth and use light to cure the materials on your teeth. It takes less than an hour to complete and the results are instant.
We also offer at-home professional teeth whitening. You can get a brighter, whiter smile from the comfort of your home without an appointment. The take home tooth whitening kit is simple to use. It offers the same professional results however it take longer to see those results. You will wear whitening trays for a set amount of time each day until you reach the desired results.
