Cosmetic Dentistry

A brand new smile to rejuvenate your looks and boost your self-confidence!

Cosmetic Dentistry is the art and technology of improving a smile. While it can include procedures that also improve the health of the teeth, it is done primarily for aesthetic purposes.

What can Cosmetic Dentistry do for you?

With cosmetic dentistry, you can change imperfections of your smile such as gaps, crooked or protruding teeth, discolored or yellowed teeth, uneven teeth or an uneven gum line, teeth that are too small, a gummy smile, teeth that have an irregular shape, chips, blemishes and more.

Dr. Au uses a variety of procedures to help our patients achieve their goals for their smile, and there is usually more than one option to attain the same end. Some smile makeovers can even be done in just a visit or two.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an important part of Dr. Au’s smile makeover toolkit. Smiles can be totally transformed in as little as two dental visits.

A dental veneer is a thin facing, usually porcelain, that is bonded to the outside of the tooth. Veneers can be designed to create a certain look of smile, such as a Hollywood smile, youthful smile or a natural smile. They cover or correct imperfections such as stained or yellowed teeth, chips, gaps, misshapen teeth and mildly crooked teeth. Learn more about Porcelain Veneers.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is tooth-colored composite resin material that is directly applied to teeth to repair problems with the teeth, such as chips, cracks, gaps and discoloration. Learn more about Dental Bonding.

Tooth-colored fillings

Cosmetic DentistryDr. Au uses tooth-colored composite (bonding) material to fill cavities. With the improvement of materials over the years, composite fillings are just as durable as the old metal amalgam fillings. If you still have amalgam in your mouth, Dr. Au will safely remove it and replace it with safe, tooth-colored composite material.

Full Smile Makeovers

Some smiles require the use of several of the tools of cosmetic dentistry. A patient can have a combination of factors, such as missing teeth, worn-down and broken-down teeth, gums that are receding and stains and discoloration.

Smile Design

We will take external photos to help design your smile.

In such cases, Dr. Au does careful planning, including consulting with his associates Dr. Dault and Dr. Jen Kin. He takes exterior and intraoral photos, and creates study models to study the smile. He does a comprehensive oral exam and takes digital and sometimes 3D X-rays.

Dr. Au makes the study models from the impressions of your teeth with which he can study how the teeth meet, as well as being able to study factors about your teeth we can’t otherwise see. Dr. Au then creates a “wax-up” by adding wax to the study model, which he manipulates into the final smile, adding teeth where needed, changing the teeth’s shape, repositioning them, and so on.

This tool not only helps Dr. Au plan your treatment, but gives you a visual of what your smile makeover will look like when finished. If you don’t like anything, Dr. Au can easily change the wax-up until you are fully satisfied with your final smile’s look.

Beautiful natural and confidence-boosting results!

Patient Testimonial


Cosmetic Dentistry“I had chipped and crooked front teeth. Dr. Au was highly recommended to me. He’s an artist in the way he did my veneers. Now I have beautiful, even teeth for the first time in my life, and I’m no longer embarrassed to smile or laugh.

“What I like about the practice is they are warm, and greet you as if you were family. Not only is Dr. Au a very talented dentist, but he is just such a nice and caring person. I said I’d like to adopt him.”
