If you have multiple decayed, broken, or missing teeth, you may think it’s simply too late for you to have an attractive smile, but we’re happy to tell you that you’re wrong. With a smile makeover, our dentist can restore the beauty and health of your teeth using a unique combination of procedures all working together. No matter the condition of your mouth right now, you can trust Pinnacle Dental to give you a result you’ll love for decades to come.
Porcelain veneers give a patient the ability to improve the shape, size, and color of their teeth in whatever way they want, meaning this one treatment can take care of multiple aesthetic flaws at the same time. It involves placing thin ceramic restorations over the front of the teeth that act as masks, and they're designed to look like pristine white enamel. Custom-made for each patient, you can get just one or an entire set in as little as two appointments.
Thanks to recent advancements in dental materials, patients are no longer forced to get gold or silver crowns when repairing their teeth. Now, the team at Pinnacle Dental can create attractive all-porcelain crowns that both look natural and can be trusted to last. Once your restoration made from high-quality ceramic is in place, only you and your dentist will be able to tell which tooth isn’t your own, and you’ll be able to rely on it whether you’re greeting a friend or biting into your favorite food.
Perfect for minor chips, thin gaps, and small stains, this treatment involves placing a color-matched composite resin directly onto an affected tooth. The dentist can then shape the resin to cover the flaw and look like a regular part of the enamel, making the imperfection seemingly disappear. From beginning to end, the procedure only takes about an hour, but the results can easily last for 10 years or more.
If you’re looking for a fast, easy, and affordable way to improve your overall appearance, teeth whitening is the way to go. Zoom! Whitening is able to eliminate stains caused by coffee, wine, tobacco, and natural aging to make the teeth up to eight shades brighter with a single procedure. At Pinnacle Dental, you have the option to get a quick in-office treatment, or we can send you home with a custom-made kit that’s much stronger and more reliable than any generic product you’ll find at the store.
The proportion of the gums to the teeth has a big impact on the overall appearance of the smile, and for some people, their gum line actually overshadows their teeth. This cannot only cause the teeth to appear too short, but it can also make a patient more susceptible to gum disease. Fortunately, our dentist can use a soft tissue laser to comfortably remove any excess tissue to quickly help the teeth appear longer and the smile more balanced.
If you’re thinking about getting a cosmetic treatment, we’re happy to give you a preview of the results so you can know you’ll love your new smile even before you sit in the chair. Using a photo of your current smile, we’ll digitally edit it to show you how teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or any other procedure you’re interested in will enhance your appearance. Once you love what you see in the “after” image, our team will get to work making it real.
Smiling often can cause wrinkles to develop on the face over time, and for particularly happy people, this can make them appear much older than they really are. Thankfully, the team at Pinnacle Dental is ready to help patients tackle this problem, too! With trusted treatments like Botox and Juvederm, we can make fine lines and wrinkles practically disappear with just 10 minutes and a few painless injections. In a single appointment, we can give you whiter teeth and smoother skin so you absolutely glow as you walk out of our dental office!

If you’re ready to schedule your initial consultation, then don’t hesitate to get in touch so our friendly team can set up an appointment. However, if you still have a few questions on your mind, that’s okay too! To make finding the answers as seamless as possible, we’ve responded to some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from patients below.
That depends! Although cosmetic dental services typically aren’t covered by dental insurance providers since they aren’t considered “medically necessary,” each patient’s plan is different. Plus, some treatments are considered to be both restorative and cosmetic, like metal-free dental crowns. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to double-check. If you need any help with this process, don’t hesitate to let our team know. We’d be happy to handle the paperwork and do our part to maximize your coverage so the process is as stress-free as possible.
If your teen is self-conscious about their smile, you’ll be happy to know that there are some cosmetic dental treatments that are safe for teens! A few of the most popular ones include metal-free dental crowns, teeth whitening, and direct bonding. The best way to find out if cosmetic dentistry is suitable for them is to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentist in Braintree.
The longevity of your results will rely on two important factors. The first is the type of treatment you are getting. While veneers are designed to last for 10+ years, in-office teeth whitening can last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years. Another important component is how well you care for your teeth and gums. Dental problems like gum disease and tooth decay can quickly wreak havoc on your smile if left unattended, which is why attending your bi-yearly dental checkups and cleanings are so important. You should also implement a solid at-home oral hygiene routine, limit your consumption of sugary foods and beverages, and quit unhealthy dental habits (like smoking and using your teeth as tools).
Whether you are struggling with a minor chip that only you notice or pigmented discoloration that is much more evident, cosmetic dentistry may be the solution you’ve been looking for! So, if you are unhappy with your smile, don’t hesitate to schedule an initial consultation with our cosmetic dentist in Braintree. Once they’ve conducted a thorough dental exam and learned more about your smile goals, they can determine your candidacy. Fortunately, even if you aren’t initially a candidate, your dream smile isn’t out of reach. After administering the appropriate restorative care, your dental team be able to get to work on the aesthetic changes you want to make.
