Cosmetic Dentistry

The Art of Smile Design

Cosmetic dentistry not only improves your looks, it can improve your life. At Valo Dentistry, we also have a strong emphasis on smile design. Our team focuses on incorporating the principles of cosmetic dentistry into all of our work. We believe function and appearance go hand in hand. Our goal is to restore natural appearance and natural function. Great dentistry should be invisible. When you leave our office, we want your smile to look healthy, not fabricated. Though if you’re really thrilled with our work, feel free to brag.

Digital Smile Design at Valo Dentistry

At Dr. Valo’s office, we can design a smile for you digitally to show you a picture of what is possible. Then, with advanced technology, we can actually take it to your mouth in a three-dimensional format so you can see how your new smile will actually look after treatment!

Imagine trying on your new smile before your treatment even begins. At Valo Dentistry, you can! Give us a call today to learn more about our cutting edge smile design technology.

Six Month Smiles & Clear Aligners

Achieving the straight smile you deserve for the look you’ve always dreamed of can be yours — whether you’re preparing for a walk down the aisle or graduating into something great. So many patients hide behind imperfect teeth, never enjoying the full confidence a straight smile can provide. Dr. Valo is skilled at helping patients get healthy, straight teeth with the help of cosmetic orthodontic options. Compared to traditional orthodontic treatments, Six Month Smiles clear braces and MTM Clear Aligner System by Dentsply offer a faster, less noticeable way to get a straight smile. Should you require more comprehensive orthodontic treatment, Dr. Valo will personally consult with the proper specialist to ensure you receive the care you need.

Porcelain Veneers

Maybe you’re unhappy with the color or shape of your teeth. Maybe your teeth are slightly worn, chipped, or broken. Maybe you want to smile more often and with more confidence. Dr. Valo’s dedicated team can help you design the smile you want with porcelain veneers. We start by removing a thin layer of enamel from the surface of the teeth we’re treating. Next we’ll take an impression of the teeth and send the impression to a lab for the creation of your custom-fit porcelain veneers. We’ll provide you with temporary veneers to protect your teeth until you come back for your final session. When you return, we’ll ensure the porcelain veneers fit correctly before bonding them to your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are durable and natural-looking. When you leave our office flashing your new porcelain veneers, you’ll have a smile designed just for you and the new-found confidence to prove it.




Minimal-Prep Veneers

If you’re dealing with a smile that’s less than perfect due to worn, chipped, broken, or discolored teeth but you’re not ready to commit to crowns or porcelain veneers, consider minimal-prep veneers. Minimal-prep veneers are ultra-thin, stain-resistant and long-lasting. Talk to the smile design team at Valo Dentistry to discover if minimal-prep veneers are right for you. They’ll help you discover your best smile.

Full-Mouth Restoration

At Valo Dentistry, when our patients are happy with the way they look and feel, we’re happy with our work. If you’ve been avoiding the dentist because you think your smile is lost for good, give us a call. Whether your teeth are worn, cracked, stained, or missing, we’ll work together to find a combination of cosmetic dentistry services that will help you locate that missing grin. Whatever your needs, our team will use their skills to help you achieve optimal dental health and the look you want, designing the perfect smile for you.

Composite Bonding

Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t just solve big problems. Even a tiny chip or crack in your tooth, a small stain, or receding gums can leave you looking and feeling less than your best. Composite bonding may be just the solution. For us, it’s an art, but for you, it’s a simple, inexpensive procedure. The talented team at Valo Dentistry will apply layers of plastic resin to the surface of your tooth. After molding and smoothing the resin, we’ll harden it with a curing light and you’ll be on your way. Even the tiniest amount of smile design can make a big difference.




Smile Whitening

Have you ever wondered how to get white teeth? Just turn on the TV and you’ll see a commercial for a bleaching product to whiten and brighten your smile. Sure those over-the-counter products are tempting, but if you want professional results with the comfort and convenience of home whitening, we can help. Our smile design team can recommend a few different options to find an effective method that suits your needs. Patients can enjoy the benefits of Nite White. We also utilize Ultradent’s Opalescence series, starting with Boost for a one-hour whitening in-office to provide the perfect jump start. Patients also receive custom trays to take home for added convenience. We’ll send you home with simple instructions and the tooth whitening product that’s right for you. Valo Dentistry also offers a unique, disposable tray option called “Go Tray” also by Opalescence. Available only through dentists, this product has proven popular as a way to introduce whitening and to whiten easily without impressions or custom trays. The cost is about the same as other options sold in stores.

We welcome questions and comments, providing creative solutions to help achieve the best possible outcome. So, ask us today about our “Go Trays,” and get started today. Just promise you’ll come back to show us the result!
