Cosmetic dentistry is a term used to describe the type of dentistry which strives to not only IMPROVE the appearance of patients’ teeth, but also make sure they look as natural as can be.
The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to address the needs of our patients who may not feel overly confident in the appearance of their smile. After all, a smile is often one of the first impressions you have to offer when interacting with others in your personal or professional life. Cosmetic dentistry in Prescott, AZ, which strives to correct flaws that are visible when you eat, laugh, smile, or speak, is available to all of our patients with mostly healthy teeth who want that extra edge. The majority of these treatments are non-invasive and can be completed relatively quickly, and some procedures even overlap with other more traditional treatments like dental implants.
It is important to note that cosmetic dentistry is ideal for those who already have overall good oral health. Certain purely cosmetic treatments should only be attempted when gums are healthy. Ask Dr. Hicks and our staff which cosmetic treatment would best achieve the results you are looking for.

- Teeth that appear too stubby
