Cosmetic Dental Services In Aurora
The dental professionals at City of Lights Dental offer a wide range of cosmetic dental services designed to improve the appearance of your teeth. Services include:
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners designed to gradually shift teeth into their appropriate position. This treatment was introduced in the late 1990s as a more comfortable, discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front of the teeth to address issues such as small gaps, minor misalignment, discoloration, size, and other issues. This treatment is typically used on the upper 6 to 8 front teeth that are most visible when smiling or speaking. Veneers may be made of porcelain or composite resin.
Teeth whitening is designed to remove stains and discoloration, creating a brighter, whiter smile.
Dental crowns are considered restorative cosmetic. This treatment involves tooth-shaped “caps” that are placed on teeth that are discolored, damaged, or weakened to restore both the appearance and functionality of your smile.
Dental bridges are designed to replace one or more missing teeth. This device consists of two dental crowns with pontics, or artificial teeth, in between. The crowns are attached to the natural teeth or dental implants on each side of the gap. Dental bridges also restore the appearance and functionality of your smile.
Dental implants are another option designed to replace one or more missing teeth. The implant screw is inserted into the jawbone, creating a stable base for the replacement tooth/teeth. A single implant can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple implants can support up to an entire arch.
Problems Cosmetic Dentists Can Solve
The skilled dental professionals at City of Lights Dental have the experience and expertise to solve a variety of dental issues. Some of the most common issues addressed by cosmetic dentistry include:
- Chipped or broken teeth

In some cases, a single procedure can address multiple issues. However, in some cases, multiple procedures may be necessary. This is known as a smile makeover.
