Spring is the time when the Earth revives itself. Brown ground turns green. Bare branches fill with leaves, buds, and flowers. Our moods begin to lighten along with the landscape. Many people take the opportunity to change their looks too, with a new haircut, a fresh tan, or a colorful pedicure.

- Orthodontics, with conventional braces or Invisalign

- Teeth and gum contouring

Whether you get a single procedure or multiple treatments, Dr. Kevin Layton will work with you to give you the smile of your dreams. The first step is a consultation where you can discuss your smile goals and learn about your options. To schedule one, call our Oklahoma City, OK dentist office at 405-395-2283.
In the meantime, we’ve provided an overview of our cosmetic dental procedures.
Straighten Your Smile With Orthodontics
If you want to fix a crooked smile, we offer both traditional braces and Invisalign. Dr. Layton will help determine which solution is best for you. Many folks opt for Invisalign because its clear aligners are practically invisible and removable. So you can take them out for meals or even for special occasions.
Invisalign treatment is usually completed more quickly than braces too, in an average of 12 months for adults. However, braces are a better choice for some cases, including teeth with more extreme misalignment.
Cover Multiple Imperfections With Dental Veneers
Applied to the front surfaces of your teeth, dental veneers can hide all kinds of smile issues, including chips, stains, cracks, and irregularly shaped teeth. They’re sometimes called “instant orthodontics” because you can even use them to conceal small gaps or slightly crooked teeth.
We offer veneers made of three different materials: porcelain, ceramic, or e.max. All of them offer durability and a natural appearance. Dr. Layton can help you select the one that will work best for your smile.
Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening
Your pearly whites will look a lot more pearly with professional teeth whitening. It’s one of our easiest and most affordable cosmetic dental procedures. We can brighten your smile up to eight shades in about an hour with an in-office treatment. You just relax and let us do all the whitening work!
Or we can provide you with customized trays and professional-strength gel you can use at home. The trays make it easy to get a perfect application that won’t irritate your teeth or gums.
Tooth Bonding Is an Easy & Affordable Smile Fix
You can cover minor issues like chips, stains, or uneven edges in a single appointment with a treatment called bonding. Dr. Layton applies tooth-colored resin directly to your teeth, then “cures” it with a special light. Though it won’t last as long as a dental veneer or a dental crown, bonding is completely reversible. We won’t need to remove any enamel from your teeth!
Get Your Smile in Shape With Teeth & Gum Contouring
If you’re dissatisfied with the size or shape of your teeth, Dr. Layton can painlessly contour them. He can also remove excess gum tissue to correct the look of an overly “gummy” smile or even out a crooked gumline.
Treat Receding Gums With a Gentle Chao Pinhole Treatment
Receding gums not only look unattractive, they negatively affect your overall oral health. Dr. Layton is certified to offer the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a quicker and more comfortable alternative to a gum graft. Unlike a gum graft, your gums will look and feel better right away. And with no cutting or stitches, your recovery will be fast.
Try Out Smile Improvements With a Snap-On Smile
Snap-On Smile is a removable prosthetic that fits over your smile, completely covering it so even missing teeth are hidden. For many folks, it’s an affordable way to try out smile improvements before investing more time or money in their smile. It can also be worn to hide gaps in a smile while waiting for dental implants to heal. With proper care, it can last about as long as a partial denture.
With so many cosmetic dental procedures, it can be tough to choose the ones that make the most sense for your smile. That’s where Dr. Layton comes in! He’s happy to answer all your questions and explain all of your options. To schedule a cosmetic consultation with him, call 405-395-2283.
