With the new year here, many of us are thinking about ways to improve ourselves. We may have dedicated this year to losing weight, continuing our education, or changing careers.

However, one way that you may not have thought about improving yourself is through your smile. A new smile in the new year could be just what you need to boost your confidence and sense of self-esteem.

At Summit Dental, we offer you many types of cosmetic dentistry that we can use to treat your smile. We encourage you to call us for a consultation soon at

so you can get started on your new smile.

While patients love all our cosmetic treatments, we have a few services that are more popular than others. We outline them below for you.

Transform Your Smile With Dental Veneers

If you want to make a dramatic new statement with your smile, there’s no better way to do it than with dental veneers. How do you think celebrities achieve their beautiful smiles? Much of the time it’s through the use of veneers.

Dental veneers are thin shells, usually made from porcelain, that your dentist will bond to the front side of your teeth. Veneers will quickly hide many types of teeth flaws, including pits, chips, cracks, deep stains, misshapen teeth, and worn teeth.

We use prepless veneers whenever possible, which means that little, if any, preparation needs to be done to your teeth before the veneers are placed. At your first appointment, take impressions of your prepared teeth so that your veneers can be made. Then, you’ll return to our office once your veneers are ready. After just two appointments, you’ll have your beautiful new smile and feel ready to face the world.

Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening

Our professional teeth whitening is a quick way to achieve a radiant smile. Over the years, our smiles can become dingy and discolored from the foods and drinks we consume as well as from habits like smoking.

At Summit Dental, you’ll have two fantastic options for your whitening treatment. If you have a big event like a wedding or reunion coming up, our in-office treatment is just what you need. We’ll apply professional-strength whitening gel, then use a laser to accelerate the results. In just a few minutes, you’ll leave our office with a much brighter smile.

If time is not a factor, then you may want to whiten your teeth at home using one of our professional take-home kits. We’ll give you a set of custom trays and a whitening agent that you can use whenever you want. Whiten your teeth while watching TV, reading, or even soaking in the tub. In just a matter of days, you’ll achieve your dream smile and be ready for your big event.

See a Straighter Smile With Our Orthodontics

There’s no need to go through life with a crooked smile. Summit Dental offers you two beneficial types of orthodontic treatment that can give you a beautiful, straight smile.

Patients love our Invisalign treatment. If you’re not familiar with it, you owe it to yourself to find out more about this innovative treatment. You’ll wear a series of clear plastic teeth aligners that will gently move your teeth to where they should be. Not only are the aligners barely noticeable (if at all), you could complete your treatment in as few as 12 months. What could be better?

If Invisalign isn’t right for you, we also offer traditional metal braces. Braces have been around for decades because they work well in a variety of situations and can tackle the toughest orthodontic cases. During your initial consultation, we’ll examine you, take a set of X-rays, and help you decide on the course of treatment that’s right for you.

No matter what type of cosmetic dentistry you need, you’ll find it at Summit Dental. Dr. Le Pera and the rest of our team are ready to treat your smile to the best care possible. Call us today at
