Cosmetic DentistryThere is no need to feel self-conscious about your smile. Dr. Richard Meleo and Dr. Jane Ligums are experienced in a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments designed to whiten and brighten smiles, and to aesthetically repair damaged teeth so that no one will be able to tell them apart from your natural teeth. We can perform entire aesthetic makeovers, as well as single tooth cosmetic upgrades.

Cosmetic dental treatments offered in our office include the following.

Teeth whitening Whether you choose the fast-acting, in-office Zoom treatment system, or a take-home kit, this is a simple, noninvasive way to whiten your teeth.

Zoom whiteningZoom® in-office whitening gets teeth up to 8 shades whiter in a visit. Our take-home systems take a bit longer, but deliver the same beautiful results. We also have a lifetime whitening program available. Please ask us about it at your next appointment.

Veneers (AKA Laminates) We bond these ultra-thin sheets of porcelain to the fronts of your teeth to correct a variety of imperfections, including gaps between teeth, and chipped, cracked or stained teeth. Veneers are matched to the shade of your natural teeth.

Ceramic crowns Teeth that are too damaged to be repaired with fillings can be restored with crowns made from high-quality ceramic and matched to the color of your natural teeth. A crown protects the tooth beneath it and restores its shape and strength.

Invisalign® This aesthetic teeth alignment system uses plastic aligners to guide teeth into their ideal position. You can learn more about this treatment by visiting our Invisalign® page.

Gum contouring Uneven gum lines, gummy smiles and teeth that appear too short can be corrected via gum contouring.

Smile line analysis Your smile line starts at your eye teeth and drops slightly in the center or your mouth. Patients whose teeth have worn down or who have bite discrepancies can have a reverse smile line, which gives them an aged appearance. We can analyze your smile and explain treatments to correct your fallen smile line.

Grafting Sometimes, due to recession, roots can become exposed and sensitive, which can be corrected by repositioning gum rather than placing a filling and making the tooth look longer.
