Cosmetic Dentistry

Giving Patients More Reasons to Smile

Do you have cosmetic concerns that keep you from smiling in pictures? Do you find yourself looking down or covering your mouth when you laugh or smile? Your West Des Moines cosmetic dentist wants you to know that there are several procedures available that could have you saying “cheese!” very soon! Dr. Hawks has the expertise to perform full smile makeovers and repair minor structural flaws. Whether you’re dissatisfied by the shape, size, or shade of your teeth, Dr. Hawks can recommend a treatment plan that fits your unique needs.

Your Road to a Brilliant Smile Starts Here

We offer our patients a number of cosmetic treatment options, including:

  • Teeth Whitening: We offer teeth whitening, both in-office and through take-home custom trays. This treatment works best on surface stains.
  • Dental Bonding and Tooth Contouring:If your staining is more extensive, or if your tooth has minor structural damage, bonding is an excellent option. Bonding consists of applying a composite material to your tooth, like the material used in fillings, which evens out the surfaces of your teeth and obscures stains. The material is then hardened, and what is left behind is a beautiful, white smile. On the other hands, if you dislike the way the edges of your teeth are shaped, Dr. Hawks can smooth out any imperfections through tooth contouring.
  • Porcelain Veneers: If you dislike the shape and size of your teeth, or you would like a more durable solution for repairing stains and chips, then we suggest veneers. Veneers are beautiful cosmetic restorations that reflect light like natural teeth. They also impart a durability not found in other cosmetic treatments, like bonding.
