Who can benefit from cosmetic dentistry?

The best candidates for cosmetic dentistry are those who want to improve the look of their smile. These are people who want to enhance their self-esteem and find a new sense of confidence.

Patients with chips, cracks, breaks, and small gaps are good candidates for cosmetic procedures. Also, if your teeth are stained or discolored, teeth whitening is a great solution to give you a whiter, brighter smile.

Types of Cosmetic Procedures


Dental bonding is a popular procedure to give your teeth a whole new look. This treatment involves a composite resin that the dentist places on your teeth to cover up small cracks or chips. If your tooth is slightly misshapen, bonding also works. The result is an instantly improved smile.

Bonding Procedure

The procedure is simple and painless. Dr. Peabody first preps your tooth before the treatment. Since the composite resin is soft, the doctor can mold the material to fit your tooth appropriately. After the resin is placed on the surface of your tooth, it is hardened with a special light to make it sturdy and durable. The entire process typically takes less than an hour.

Porcelain Veneers

While dental bonding is a good choice for small imperfections, porcelain veneers are often recommended for moderate to severe damage. Veneers are thin, strong ceramic restorations that are placed on the front surfaces of the teeth. They conceal flaws to reveal a more balanced, beautiful smile.

Teeth Whitening

One of the best ways to refresh your smile is to whiten your teeth. Whiter teeth not only give you a better smile but can enhance your overall appearance and even give you a more youthful look.

This cosmetic procedure can lighten your teeth several shades in one session. Best of all, whitening sessions don’t take very long but provide you with long-lasting results. With our advanced treatments, you are comfortable and safe during any visit.

Personalized Treatment for Optimal Results

Peabody Dental Care focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth, leaving you with a beautiful smile! For some, that might mean teeth whitening. For others, more extensive work might be recommended, such as bonding or porcelain veneers. Whatever procedure you choose, you will be comfortable and well taken care of throughout your procedure. Afterward, we follow-up on patients to ensure they are satisfied with their results.

For many patients, it might be time to replace metal fillings with white fillings, onlays, or crowns. This is where our experience and training are key to helping you achieve optimum dental health and, of course, a beautiful smile. We hope that you place your trust in our team at Peabody Dental Care with your cosmetic dental needs.

From Dr. Peabody

I love being a dentist, and for 33 years I have tremendously enjoyed providing dental care for you as well as the relationships we’ve formed.  I have decided to retire from the private practice of dentistry so that I can spend more time with my family.

I have interviewed several quality dentists, and I am delighted that I found an outstanding dentist that I know will fit my current patients and the community of Santa Cruz.

With sincere confidence, I am happy to introduce Dr. Martha Catalina Payne. (Dr. Cat)
