Your smile says a lot, and we want to help you make it even brighter. At Alder Family Dental, we offer complete health dentistry, and that includes presenting the best smile when trying to make a good impression. Cosmetic dentistry is not just large, expensive procedures, there is a whole range of options available that can make a significant impact on your look. Following an evaluation with our dentists, he can offer a variety of options and information, together, you can determine what is right for you.

Why do our patients ask about cosmetic dentistry?

•  Our patients want to present a clean and bright smile when they are in social situations or professional engagements.
•  Our patients want to smile with confidence and without concern.
•  Our patients want to look their best.

For years, you may have taken your perfect smile for granted, but with time comes the wear. Our teeth can begin to look dingy, stained, uneven, or chipped. As we realize that our teeth have lived life hard, and that time is beginning to show, you may begin to hide your smile. Problems such as natural imperfections, accidental damage, or food stains can cause embarrassment and even social anxiety. We don't want you to dim your smile because of your teeth. At our dentists, we can fix teeth that are stained, chipped, or crooked, and we may be able to do this faster and easier than you think.

Dental Bonding

The team at our dentists is here to not only restore your health and function, but to give you the smile you have always wanted. When chipping and cracking has made your teeth appear unsightly, we can restore them quickly and seamlessly with dental bonding.

Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth is a dental cosmetic procedure that can have a huge impact. Our teeth are in constant use, and to a certain extent, we abuse them. Coffee, tea, tobacco and soda stain our teeth, as does many different food products. We can make your teeth several shades whiter, giving them a cleaner look. Many patients are surprised that they even get a younger look. Whitening your teeth is one of the simplest, and yet noticeable, dental procedures to enhance your smile. Patients love this procedure because whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will enhance the color of your tooth enamel and give you a smile that is whiter and brighter.

Porcelain Veneers

We can cover teeth that are chipped, fractured, too big, too small, crooked, or even gapped. Tooth veneers are a wildly popular technique for giving you the look you want simply and easily. No braces, no crowns. Tooth veneers uses a very thin porcelain shell that is customized to give you the look and fit you want. Though thin, these porcelain shells are strong and durable, lasting most patients many years. We bond your veneers directly on the outside surface of your teeth, generally only the front eight teeth that are most visible. Some patients prefer the added strength of having an encasing around the whole tooth, not just the face, in that case we can give you the look you want with dental crowns.

Dental Implants

We can restore teeth that are missing, or provide you a post to attach a dental appliance, with the placement of a dental implant. A dental implant is a titanium metal post that is designed to replace missing teeth, by placing the implant directly into your jawbone. Titanium is a metal with the unique ability of being biocompatible, meaning your living tissue will not reject it, and in fact it will grow around it, making it strong and firm in its placement. Once the post is firmly in place, we can place one of multiple dental prosthetics on top, including a single dental crown, or provide a strong post for a dental bridge or denture. Dental implants are considered a permanent solution, their lifespan is greater than 20 years and improving more each day.

Traditional Braces

Our office now provides traditional orthodontics to patients of all ages! A complimentary consultation is offered to see if you are a candidate.


Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.

Sleep Apnea/Snoring

Depending on the severity of the condition, there are a number of methods used to treat snoring and sleep apnea.

We are happy to answer all of your cosmetic dental questions and encourage you to schedule an evaluation. You may be surprised at what we can do and how we can enhance your look. For more information, contact us by calling our front desk at (509)-525-9474.
