A great smile can boost your confidence and allow you to shine when speaking and interacting with others. What better time to improve your smile than now? The new year brings new opportunities to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, and advances in the field have led to treatments that can provide both restorative, functional, and cosmetic results. If you are ready to get your best smile in 2023, continue reading as Dr. Krell discusses cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are looking to achieve a dazzling smile, porcelain veneers may be the solution for you. These custom shells are placed over the tooth, covering up stubborn stains and discoloration, as well as concealing chips, cracks, and other cosmetic issues. Since veneers address a number of problems, just about any patient that is interested in improving the appearance of their smile can consider this treatment. For example, those with teeth that are too small may benefit from the ability of veneers to change the size and shape of teeth.

Teeth Whitening

A brilliant smile can easily be yours with teeth whitening. This treatment is designed to remove stains and whiten your teeth. Common causes of tooth discoloration include certain foods and beverages, tobacco use, some medications (such as certain antibiotics), and aging.

Teeth whitening uses a bleaching gel that is applied to the teeth to help break up stains. While there are over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions, they can be ineffective, and results may be subtle. Dr. Krell recommends having this treatment completed in-office, where the treatment is properly administered and monitored.


Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth without the use and inconvenience of traditional braces. This treatment uses a customized series of clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. You will be able to eat and speak as normal while wearing the aligners. The treatment process is dependent upon your specific treatment needs and tends to appeal to those that want to discreetly straighten their teeth.

Smile Makeover

If a total smile makeover is what you are after in 2023, Dr. Krell offers a solution. Your smile should bring you joy and confidence, so if you are currently experiencing cosmetic imperfections, such as chips, discoloration, or gaps, a smile makeover can enhance the look of your teeth. The smile makeover may include the following procedures:

  • Professional whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Gum recontouring
  • Restorations
  • Invisalign

Dr. Krell will determine your exam smile makeover treatment plan and procedures during your evaluation.
