There is no denying that a beautiful smile makes a great first impression. If your smile isn’t all that it could be, maybe it’s time to consider cosmetic dentistry. Even a small cosmetic change can make a big difference in how your smile looks—and in how you feel about yourself.

At White Smiles Family Dental, Dr. Preston White takes the time to learn what every patient wants in his or her smile. He can recommend the ideal treatment for you to give you the smile of your dreams.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Springfield, MO

There is artistry as well as science involved in designing your ideal smile. Perfecting a smile can mean minor treatment, including cosmetic bonding and teeth whitening, or more extensive work, such as Invisalign, crowns or bridges, veneers, implants—or any combination of these.

Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever before, and it’s much more accessible. If you aren't happy with your smile, talk to us, and we can go over your options.

Teeth Whitening

Although over-the-counter whitening kits and strips might help get rid of some surface stains on your teeth, they don’t compare to professional teeth whitening when it comes to results.

We offer a number of different tooth whitening systems, including KöR and Zoom, which can match your budget and your smile goals. With professional whitening, you get the appropriate strength of whitening gel, which provides exceptional results while minimizing sensitivity.


A straight smile is not only more beautiful, but it’s easier to take care of. When teeth are misaligned, flossing and brushing can be more difficult, putting your oral health at risk. With Invisalign invisible braces, you can get a straight smile without the brackets and wires of traditional metal braces.

The clear plastic aligners fit your adult lifestyle, as well as that of older teens, because they are discreet and removable. There are no eating restrictions, and taking care of your teeth is easy. Treatment is usually much quicker than traditional orthodontics.

Tooth-Colored Dentistry and Cosmetic Bonding

With tooth-colored options, we use a composite resin made to match the color of your teeth. We use this for material both for bonding and fillings. 

If you have teeth that are stained, chipped, cracked, or otherwise misshapen, cosmetic bonding might be the solution. Dental bonding is also effective for fixing minor gaps in the teeth.

There are benefits to bonding, including the fact that only a small amount of the tooth enamel beeds to be removed, keeping more of your tooth structure intact. It is also less costly than other restorative procedures, such as porcelain veneers.

Dental crowns and bridges also provide an esthetic appeal while repairing and enhancing your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are looking for a dazzling smile similar to those you see on the red carpet, veneers can give you almost instant glamour. Veneers are an excellent option for covering teeth that are chipped, worn, crooked, discolored, or otherwise flawed. These wafer-thin porcelain shells cover your teeth, hiding a multitude of imperfections.

Smile Makeovers

Patients who come to us with more than one dental issue might opt for a full smile makeover. A complete smile makeover will not only improve the appearance of your smile, but it will also address its health and function. To keep the process from seeming overwhelming, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is manageable and fits your timeline.
