Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Cosmetic Dentistry

How can we help you?

Here at Northpark Dental, our entire staff is trained to answer your questions about your oral health. We encourage you to ask them, and we’ve even compiled a few of the most common ones here. Please call us if you can't find the answer you’re seeking.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Have you thought about making some enhancements to your smile, but you've felt like cosmetic dentistry may be complicated or expensive? Dental bonding is an excellent way to improve your smile with an efficient, affordable, and non-invasive procedure. Using the same material that dental fillings use, composite resin, bonding can eliminate minor imperfections such as:

  • Chipping
  • Small fractures
  • Discoloration or stains
  • Gaps, spacing, or misshapen teeth

Composite is bonded directly to your tooth to correct shaping or cover discoloration. Since composite can be customized to match your teeth, the results of cosmetic bonding are aesthetically pleasing.

Affordable Way to Improve Your Smile

Bonding also tends to be less expensive than other cosmetic procedures, so it’s an affordable way to make improvements to your smile. We can typically complete a bonding procedure during one appointment, so you’ll be able to enjoy your new smile in no time!

Would you like to learn if bonding might be right for your needs? Contact Northpark Dental today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Phan or Dr. Babor. We offer many cosmetic services designed to improve and enhance your smile, so if bonding doesn't best suit your needs, our dentist will discuss other treatments with you that can help you reach your goals. 

If your smile has lost a bit of its luster, you're not alone. You might be surprised at the impact that professional teeth whitening can make. Many of our patients feel that it took years off of their appearance!

Types of Teeth Whitening

At Northpark Dental, we offer two convenient options for teeth whitening in Urbandale.

  1. Take-Home Kits: A take-home teeth whitening kit is customized with clear plastic trays we make with an impression of your smile. You'll use high-strength whitening gel in your trays at home whenever it's convenient for you. We recommend 10 days to start, and then you'll have your trays to update your smile whenever you like.
  2. In-Office Whitening: An in-office whitening treatment takes about an hour and provides you with immediate results. We'll apply high-strength gel to your teeth and finish with a fluoride treatment to reduce sensitivity. This option is excellent if you have an upcoming event to prepare for.

If you're looking for reliable "teeth whitening near me," Northpark Dental serves Urbandale, Grimes, Des Moines, and its surrounding communities.
