Beautiful teeth make you feel like smiling, but for some of us chips, stains or gaps can get in the way of a perfect grin.
At Isaacson Gentle Dentistry in White Bear Lake, MN we offer cosmetic dentistry options for all kinds of dental impairments, from yellowing to crookedness. Let our specialists help find the cosmetic dentistry option that fits your needs.
Dental bonding may be a good choice if you have noticeable imperfections such as chips, cracks or gaps in your teeth. At our White Bear Lake office, we use a tooth-colored composite molded to shape which, once cured, makes your tooth strong and fully functional.
If your teeth are stained, a bleaching treatment at our White Bear Lake Office can give you professional level whiteness and brightness. We use a higher level of peroxide than found in a drugstore kit, so your whitening is more powerful and longer-lasting.
If you have crooked teeth, uneven spacing or teeth with scuffed surfaces, veneers from our White Bear Lake office can cover the imperfections. Veneers are fitted to the surface of your natural teeth and look flawless and attractive.
For missing teeth, dental implants can complete your smile in a permanent fashion. Dental implants use a screw-like post, secured in the jawbone, to act as the root for an artificial tooth. Dental implants are secure, sturdy and natural-looking. You will be able to bite, chew and brush like normal.
Dental crowns from our White Bear Lake office are a cosmetic dentistry option for damaged teeth that uses a cap to cover imperfections. Your dentist will create a crown that matches the rest of your teeth and attach it securely so it hides any damage yet looks natural.

Dealing with a crooked smile? Invisalign may be able to help.
Your smile is one of the first features a person notices, whether you’re about to go on a first date or an important job interview. We know that having a beautiful, healthy smile can make a world of difference and offer a great first impression. Of course, if you need to fix a misaligned smile, our White Bear Lake, MN, dentists Dr. Daniel Isaacson, Dr. Mike Weisbrod and Dr. Tara Peterson can provide you with a discreet orthodontic treatment known as Invisalign,
Here are the dental problems that Invisalign can fix,
An overbite is when the upper teeth rest over the lower teeth. This problem can lead to excessive wear and tear on teeth as well as jaw pain. Invisalign can be used to address mild to moderate overbites. In some cases, rubber bands may need to be attached to Invisalign treatment in order to achieve faster results for those with more severe overbites.
When the lower jaws grow more than the upper jaws, this can cause bottom teeth to rest in front of the upper teeth. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble chewing and difficulty speaking. Teeth are also more likely to wear down. Fortunately, our White Bear Lake, MN, family dentists can fix most underbites with Invisalign.
Spaces Between Teeth
Having gaps between teeth can make it more likely for decay and gum disease to occur because there are more areas for plaque and bacteria to buildup. Invisalign can be a great way to close up the spaces quickly and efficiently for a straighter and healthier smile.
When jaws don’t grow large enough to accommodate all of your teeth this can lead to a common issue known as overcrowding. Like many of the issues above, crowded smiles can also increase your risk for cavities and gum disease because it’s harder to keep crowded, overlapped and crooked teeth clean. The good news is that Invisalign can easily treat this common dental problem.
