Many of our Fort Wayne, IN, patients seek cosmetic work to address issues like discoloration, crooked teeth, and chips.
At Harrison Dental Group, we provide conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments to enhance your smile with minimal alteration to the teeth.
What can a cosmetic dentist do for me?
Cosmetic Enhancement for Most Needs
Cosmetic procedures can also address “gummy smiles,” in which excess gum tissue obscures the full size and shape of your teeth. No matter what your cosmetic goals are, the doctors of Harrison Dental Group in Fort Wayne can offer conservative treatments. For example, a brighter smile can often be achieved with four veneers instead of 12. Conservative treatments are more affordable and still offer powerful cosmetic results. We also offer a wide range of family dentistry options.

Not every dental practice offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options. If needed, our doctors can combine your cosmetic work with restorative treatments that address tooth loss and other oral health problems.
Meeting Your Needs
Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Prior to performing cosmetic dentistry, our dentists will assess your:
Candidates for aesthetic dentistry desire a more attractive smile. If you are reluctant to show your teeth due to insecurities about the color, shape, or position of your teeth, you may be a great candidate for one or more of our cosmetic treatments.
Before your consultation can be scheduled, one of our doctors will need to determine if you are in good oral health. If we detect any issues like a cavity or gum disease, we can schedule a convenient appointment to resolve these dental health issues. Our office provides free cosmetic consultations.
"Dr. Harrison and the entire staff were very professional and knowledgeable. They were able to fit me into their schedule when I was dealing with a tooth issue. At a place that makes so many people uneasy, they make you feel very comfortable. Would recommend to all."
The dentists of Harrison Dental Group offer a wide range of treatment options that can address many aesthetic issues and give you a beautiful smile:
- Dental Bonding
- Crown Lengthening
- Gum Contouring
- Gum Grafting
- Dental Crowns
- Dental Implants
- Smile Makeover
No matter what your aesthetic concerns are, our doctors will begin by recommending the most conservative treatments possible in order to meet your goals. While other dental practices may push for expensive and invasive procedures, we prefer to start by exploring procedures that can deliver the results you want without dramatically altering the structure of your teeth.
Which Treatments Are Right For Me?
A consultation is the best way to begin exploring your treatment options. Our Fort Wayne dental practice offers free consultations for patients who wish to find out how we can help them achieve their best smiles. Certain treatments can work well together. For example, following your orthodontic treatment, you may wish to undergo teeth whitening to illuminate your new smile. Other treatments provide similar results, but may be better suited to different patients. For instance, dental bonding and porcelain veneers can deliver similar results, but some patients' teeth may not be suitable for veneers. During your consultation, your dentist will take note of your goals before recommending treatments:
Aging, dietary choices, and other factors can lead to discoloration of tooth enamel. Our dentists offer whitening treatments that can be completed in a one-hour visit to our Fort Myers office. We also offer take-home kits that can be completed on your own schedule. Both treatments can whiten teeth by several shades.
For Worn or Damaged Teeth
Bruxism, trauma, advanced decay, and normal wear can leave teeth physically damaged and looking unattractive. Our office provides several cosmetic treatments that can address these issues. Dental crowns cover damaged teeth with a natural-looking “cap” that restores strength to your tooth. Dental bonding uses tooth-colored composite resin to augment the natural structure of teeth, and veneers cover the front surfaces of the teeth using thin porcelain shells. Our office can replace missing teeth using advanced dental implants that serve as prosthetic tooth roots and provide the ultimate stability for crowns, bridges, and dentures.
For Issues Related to the Gums
Some of our Fort Wayne patients suffer from a “gummy smile.” If you have excess gum tissue that makes your teeth look small or makes your gumline look uneven, one of our doctors can artfully remove small amounts of gum tissue using an advanced laser to deliver a more attractive smile.
The Cost of Enhancing Your Smile
We understand that cost is a factor that our patients must consider. Our dentists will always be upfront and honest about the financial aspects of all of our treatments. We will also look for ways to help you reach your goals in an economical way. For example, if you can benefit from the combination of multiple treatments, you may be a good candidate for a smile makeover. This comprehensive dentistry procedure can save you time and money by combining multiple procedures into a single plan.
