Common smile flaws cosmetic dentistry can fix

When preparing for a big life event such as a job interview or school reunion, you may be surprised to learn that a cosmetic procedure can easily fit into a busy schedule. For many individuals, a single dentist appointment or professional teeth cleaning is all it takes to see significant improvements in your smile. Most procedures are fairly simple, and others can be more complex and require special care. No matter which ones you choose, your treatment at All About Smiles will have you excited to greet friends, family, and even strangers. Our Northwest Arkansas office welcomes patients with the following concerns:

  • Yellow, stained, or dull teeth

  • Crooked or misaligned teeth

  • Too-short or narrow teeth

  • Chipped or fractured teeth

Cosmetic procedures that enhance your smile

During your consultation with Dr. Cotham, you can participate in your own smile design. Based on your individual needs, we may use dental impressions or imaging services to get an overall view of your teeth. This allows our team to choose the most effective tools and ensure you get the right results as planned. The procedures we offer consist of in-office or at-home teeth whitening, affordable veneers, dental bonding and contouring, or procedures that repair or replace dental restorations.

Teeth whitening

If your goal is to make your teeth whiter, elect for a single-visit Zoom! whitening treatment in our office. Take-home Opalescence whitening kits also make brightening more accessible, as you can apply the solution in the comfort of your house. Both options have the ability to address stains in the enamel, including those unlikely to be treated successfully with a drugstore solution.


Dental veneers are made to fit comfortably over natural teeth to improve their appearance and protect them from damage. Porcelain veneers are made in a dental lab, while composite veneers are made chairside in just one sitting. After scheduling a dentist appointment at our office, you can learn more about which affordable veneers are right for your needs.

Dental bonding and contouring

Bonding and contouring can fix small cosmetic imperfections by using composite resin to hide discolored teeth, fill in gaps, and improve the shape of a tooth. The bonding material and resin are placed on the treated tooth, then hardened with a special light. Dr. Cotham will continue to add layers as needed until the desired look is achieved.

Inlays and onlays

An inlay or onlay can repair a damaged tooth. While inlays cover the indented middle, an onlay takes care of the tooth’s rounded upper edges. All About Smiles uses different materials for inlays and onlays, including porcelain, metal, and composite resin. Dr. Cotham can determine which material is the best choice while treating your teeth in Rogers, AR.

Who should get a smile makeover?

Prior to getting any cosmetic procedures, Dr. Cotham will make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for treatment. This is because every beautiful smile needs a solid foundation of good oral health. Gum (periodontal) disease, cavities, or decay must be treated right away to prevent further damage to the teeth and gums. We will give you more information about restoring your dental health during your consultation.

Dr. Cotham will also discuss what you should expect throughout the process, such as the number of visits you may need. If you are scheduling procedures in preparation for a big event, we will work with you to plan each dentist appointment accordingly. Local anesthesia or other sedation options may be suggested if you tend to have dental anxieties or worries. Our staff is always available to address any concerns or questions you may have.

Smile big at your next event

As soon as your makeover is complete, it is important to keep up the health and appearance of your smile with an oral care regimen at home. Along with everyday brushing and flossing, schedule appointments for regular dental examinations and professional teeth cleanings. Touch-up procedures at our Northwest Arkansas office may also refresh your results for future events.

Do you feel confident enough about your smile to walk into your next big event? If your smile imperfections are preventing you from living your best life, schedule a consultation with All About Smiles in Rogers, AR. Along with his talented team, Dr. Brett Cotham can improve the appearance of your teeth with a range of cosmetic options such as affordable veneers and teeth whitening.
