Custom-Designed Cosmetic Dentistry

Over the years, your smile can begin to show signs of aging even if you keep it healthy and disease-free. For instance, stains can develop from exposure to food and beverages; teeth can become worn or chipped simply from biting, or from the habit of grinding. For some patients, teeth can even drift out of alignment, causing their smiles to become increasingly more asymmetrical. Cosmetic dentistry treatments are designed to correct the esthetic aspects of your smile and turn back the years on your overall appearance.

Smile Rejuvenation Tailored for You

Cosmetic dentistry works best when it looks natural, and Dr. Lawson will ensure that your treatment is tailored to your unique needs and preferences. Dr. Lawson has received certifications from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) and is currently a member of the organization. Which means she’s studied and completed hands-on training in administering the latest in cosmetic dentistry.

While the goal is to improve the appearance of your smile, Dr. Lawson will also ensure that your treatment optimizes your oral health and bite function by preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. Dr. Lawson believes in addressing your smile as a whole, focusing on your oral health as well as your smile’s appearance.

Our customized, minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry services include:

In addition, her training from the AAFE enables Dr. Lawson to offer Botox. Administered via injection,  the Botulinum toxin inhibits the production of acetylcholine, which helps relax muscles in the face and jaw. We use Botox to treat a wide array of oral health concerns, including headaches, facial pain, TMJ disorder/bruxism, and problems with obstructed airways and acid reflux. As a positive effect of the treatment, patients also enjoy a rejuvenated appearance, as Botox also smoothes fine and lines and wrinkles in the face.

With the right personalized cosmetic dental treatment, you can once again show off your beautiful, youthful smile with pride and confidence! To schedule a cosmetic consultation, call Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
