Do you wish your smile was one of your best features? Fortunately, it's easy to improve your teeth with cosmetic dentistry. Our cosmetic dentistryCumberland, RI, dentist, Dr. Angeles Felix, discusses a few cosmetic treatments you may want to consider.

Teeth whitening

Your smile may suffer if your teeth are in good condition, yet have become progressively duller over the years. In some cases, teeth start to look a little yellow as a result of aging, but in others, the foods and beverages you consume are responsible. After you eat or drink coffee, tea, wine, cola, and berries, dark pigments settle into tiny pores in your tooth enamel, staining your teeth. Teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide, an effective whitening agent, to break up the pigments and lighten your smile. After just one hour in our Cumberland office, your teeth will be noticeably whiter.


Crowns stabilize and protect broken, cracked or fragile teeth, but they also offer a good way to conceal flaws in teeth. The restorations can be a good choice if you want to completely change the shape of a tooth, conceal a dark tooth that doesn't respond to whitening treatment, hide uneven surfaces or lengthen a short tooth. Hollow crowns fit snugly over teeth once they've been reduced in size and are made of porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic or resin.


Do you have a small chip or a few pits in a tooth? Veneers are designed to hide these and other imperfections. The thin porcelain shells fit over the fronts of your teeth, providing an excellent solution if you have crooked, twisted or oddly shaped teeth, or gaps between teeth. Veneers also keep discolorations out of sight, offer a whitening alternative and lengthen teeth.

Bridges, dentures, and dental implants

Nothing changes your smile more than a missing tooth. Although your altered appearance is certainly an important concern, missing teeth can cause other problems. Once the tooth is gone, other teeth may drift and overlap, and you may find eating or speaking clearly more difficult. Thanks to bridges, dentures, and dental implants, it's possible to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges consist of artificial teeth connected to crowns, while dentures replace all of your upper or lower teeth and rest against your gums. Dental implants are synthetic root replacements that bond to your jawbone and are topped with dental crowns.
