Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry, also known as esthetic dentistry, is a fundamental principle that drives how Dr. Johnson practices dentistry. He always thinks about the procedure at hand and determines not only how it will restore function, but also how it will restore or improve the look of the patient’s smile.  One’s smile can be improved in a variety of ways and Dr. Johnson knows that not everyone’s needs and desires are the same. Improving one’s smile can vary from simple teeth whitening, to veneers, or possibly full mouth rehabilitation. A proper and thorough exam is needed to ensure the cosmetic treatment recommended will provide a natural and vibrant smile that will enhance one’s natural beauty.

The following are some common cosmetic procedures Dr. Johnson does regularly:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Composite Bonding
  • Veneers
  • Ceramic Crowns
  • Implants
  • Conservative Gold Inlays/Onlays
  • Gum Grafting/Recontouring

Dr. Johnson approaches cosmetic dentistry in a systematic approach that has given consistent results. This involves a complete series of before and after photographs, study models, and a diagnostic wax up where the end result can be predicted before any treatment has begun. This ensures that the recommended treatment will meet the patient’s needs and desired outcome. Once the diagnostic “mock-up” is approved by the patient, Dr. Johnson carefully and meticulously executes the proposed plan.


Getting the beautiful smile that you want requires not only a high degree of skill by the dentists, but also a high degree of skill by specialists and lab technicians. This is why Dr. Johnson works with some of the finest specialists and lab technicians that strive for everyday excellence in giving the patients the best smile possible. To meet the high cosmetic demand that Dr. Johnson strives for, all the ceramic lab work will be completed by master ceramists that have years of experience, and consistently produce beautiful restorations.
