3 Transformative Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry patient | Boulder, CO Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth and gums for a more attractive smile. Dr. Michael Adler offers a wide range of treatment options to address nearly any cosmetic dental issues you may be experiencing. From correcting discoloration to closing spaces between teeth, modern cosmetic dentistry can do it all. Here are three frequently performed procedures at Adler Advanced Dentistry.

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a customized dental restoration bonded to the surface of a tooth to improve its shape, size, or color. It is one of the most versatile options in all of cosmetic dentistry. Veneers can correct the appearance of nearly any aesthetic dental concern, even most cases of tooth misalignment, earning them the nickname “instant orthodontics.”

CEREC One Visit Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a great way to restore optimal function and aesthetics to a compromised tooth. In the past, getting a crown was a lengthy process involving multiple visits to the dentist. But now, you can get a crown in a single visit.

CEREC technology has revolutionized the dental crown process. This system features a computer-aided design and milling device that allows us to create a well-fitting and beautiful crown in minutes.

Gum Recontouring

You may have what is referred to as a “gummy smile” if your gum tissue covers too much of your teeth. This excess gum tissue can make your teeth look much smaller than they are.

Gum recontouring can create the aesthetically pleasing smile you desire. During this minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Adler uses a painless soft-tissue laser to remove and reshape the gum tissue. Gum recontouring can also correct an uneven gum line.

A Couple Common Cosmetic Dentistry Questions

common cosmetic dental questions boulder colorado cosmetic dentist At Adler Advanced Dentistry, we’re committed to helping you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. We do this by taking a holistic approach to your dental care through comprehensively assessing your oral health and providing prevention, as well as solutions, to your dental needs that take your overall health into consideration.

At his office, Dr. Michael Adler and staff can help you with general, family, and preventative dentistry, but we also specialize in cosmetic dental solutions that not only help your smile look its best but function at its best as well. Cosmetic dentistry is more than just whitening teeth and fixing chipped teeth, it encompasses a range of dental procedures that can affect the entire appearance and health of your mouth.

Below, we outline some of the most common questions we receive regarding cosmetic dentistry.

What is a veneer and will it eventually stain?

Dr. Adler uses porcelain veneers to help with a variety of cosmetic dental issues. Made of exceptionally thin, yet resilient porcelain, our veneers are a versatile solution to many cosmetic dental problems with teeth. Porcelain veneers can help restore teeth that are:

  • Cracked, chipped or have gaps
  • Stained or discolored
  • Misshaped or crooked

The benefits of porcelain veneers go beyond just enhancing the appearance of your smile. Because they’re bonded to your tooth, veneers are long-lasting and can often last for decades before needing replacing. What’s more, since veneers are made of a nonporous porcelain material they are resistant to staining and discoloration so you can enjoy a bright, beautiful smile for years to come.

What teeth whitening do you provide and is it safe for my teeth?

One of the most common cosmetic dental issues is stained or discolored teeth. This happens to nearly everyone, although to varying degrees. The level of staining on your teeth depends on factors such as your genetic propensity for staining, your lifestyle and eating habits, as well as your dental hygiene regimen.

Since your smile is one of the first things people see when they meet you, many people are self-conscious if their teeth are not as white as they would like. At our office, we offer the ZOOM! Teeth Whitening System to combat discoloration of your teeth. This advanced treatment whitens teeth brighter and faster than other methods and has been shown to be safe for the halt of your mouth.

A clinical study conducted by the Loma Linda University concluded that the ZOOM! Teeth Whitening System is a safe and effective treatment for whitening teeth, resulting in an average of eight shades brighter and zero to minimal sensitivity experienced by patients.

These are just a couple of the many ways cosmetic dentistry can help enhance your smile. At Adler Advanced Dentistry, we not only aim to fix your dental issues but also to educate you so that you can prevent further harm to your oral health.

New Sleep appliance for snoring and Sleep apnea

We just started using a new sleep appliance called MicroO2 with great success. This appliance seems to be much more comfortable than the Somnomed appliance. We have stopped significant snoring and improved oxygenation almost immediately, even in very severe cases. The appliance also does not constrict the tongue space- a common problem with other sleep appliances. When we call our patients after a few days of wear they are amazed with the results. We use a neuromuscular bite as the starting point for the appliance. This allows a much more comfortable jaw position. There is a greater than 70% overlap between TMD and sleep apnea so by combining neuromuscular dentistry techniques into the design of the appliance makes sense. We begin to treat both problems at the same time and find this to be integral to success. I will post some pictures and some sleep studies showing how the appliance works.

Boulder Dentist picks 2014 Bolder Boulder ZOOM Winner

Meet our ZOOM whitening winner, Bella!

Bella entered our ZOOM drawing at the 2014 Bolder Boulder, and she was picked as the winner! Bella’s teeth were already pretty white, so her results weren’t as dramatic. For her, ZOOM freshened up her smile and evened out some minor discolorations.


IMG_1694 (edited) BEFORE


IMG_1699 AFTER (edited)

In the after photo, we compared Bella’s previous tooth shade to her whitened one. There is a big difference! Many of our guests have even more dramatic results.

ZOOM whitening is a two hour in-office whitening procedure that can make your teeth up to eight shades lighter. Additionally, results typically last for a year, and we give you your own trays and bleach, so that you can maintenance whiten at home.

Looking for a non-invasive way to freshen your smile? ZOOM is a great option! It is a relatively inexpensive way to take years off of your smile, and has minimal downtime. It is safe for the gums, tissues, and teeth. ZOOM can eradicate stains that over the counter bleaching cannot. The best time to do a whitening treatment, such as ZOOM, is after you have your teeth professionally cleaned. Next time you come in for your cleaning, make sure to ask if we have any ZOOM specials!
