Cosmetic Dentistry: Design Your Ideal Smile
Even if you enjoy good oral health and practice proper oral hygiene, you may still be self-conscious about certain cosmetic aspects of your smile. Discoloration, small gaps, or cracks may cause you to cover or hide your smile. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to address the symmetry and balance of your smile while optimizing its aesthetic quality. Dr. Jason Thompson provides most cosmetic treatments at his office in Muskego, WI, and can help you choose which procedures are right for you. For more dramatic results, he can combine procedures to create a customized smile makeover plan.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for You?
Cosmetic dental procedures are minimally invasive, non-surgical steps you can take to achieve the smile you have always wanted. Even cost-effective treatments such as professional teeth whitening can provide almost instant results and help you get closer to your desired goals. Cosmetic dentistry may be a good solution if you have:
- Disproportionate teeth
- Gapped teeth
- A "gummy" smile
If you have oral health issues such as gum disease or decay, Dr. Thompson will need to treat these prior to beginning cosmetic dentistry treatment to improve the function of your smile.
Deciding Which Procedures to Undergo
Dr. Thompson will recommend specific procedures based on your unique concerns and desired results.
We offer take-home whitening treatments to help you brighten your smile in the convenience of your home and at a pace that works for you. Our office will provide custom trays made using impressions of your teeth and gums to help you apply the whitening agent efficiently and effectively. During your consultation, be sure to inquire about our Teeth Whitening for Life program.
Dr. Thompson uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material, to address small chips, cracks, and minor gaps. Dental bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can be performed on as few or as many teeth as you would like. For patients with intrinsic stains, bonding can help you brighten the shade of your smile.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front-facing area of your teeth and can address concerns with color, shape, and size all at once. They are a popular cosmetic option because of their superior aesthetics. Made of lifelike porcelain, they are carefully crafted to match the translucency and shade of your surrounding teeth.

For patients who are concerned about a "gummy" smile, we use a traditional approach to carefully and conservatively remove excessive gum tissue. This procedure, also known as gum contouring, can help your teeth appear larger and more prominent and restore balance to your smile.
Invisalign retainers can address functional concerns such misalignment and crowded teeth in addition to enhancing the beauty of your smile. We can complete Invisalign treatment in as little as 12 months for adults, offering you a faster alternative to traditional braces.
If you are undergoing two or more cosmetic treatments, Dr. Thompson will help you design a custom treatment plan known as a smile makeover. To ensure that your desired goals align with your treatment plan, we will perform a full diagnostic workup that previews your potential outcomes. Our office uses digital scans and sends them to an offsite lab to create a detailed treatment plan before we begin your makeover.
