Remove Tooth Stains

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Professional grade whitening uses special compounds called “peroxides.” These compounds react to tooth stains and break the bonds that hold them onto your enamel. Essentially, this bleaches stains away and restores the natural whiteness of your teeth. Dr. Stuckey offers take-home whitening kits, which offer a number of great advantages.

Professional whitening kits offer beautiful, gradual results, which means that your treatment will be subtle and nobody has to know that you’ve whitened your teeth. This treatment also gives you the ability to brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home. With a set of customized whitening trays, powerful whitening agents, and instructions from Dr. Stuckey, you can whiten your smile when it’s convenient for you and avoid sitting in the dentist’s chair.

Reshape Your Smile

Bonding, Shaping & Contouring

Dental bonding from Dr. Stuckey is a great option for patients who would like to correct cosmetic issues like minor gaps, chips, and small or misshapen teeth. This treatment is affordable and non-invasive, and can be used to treat most cosmetic issues. During the dental bonding process, Dr. Stuckey will apply a special dental resin directly to your tooth, then sculpt and trim it to match the rest of your smile. This restores the shape and appearance of your teeth to give you a confident, bright smile in just one appointment. Call us today to learn more!

Cover Imperfections


Veneers are a great way to restore your smile and correct issues like gaps, stained teeth, chips, and much more. These wafer-thin dental prostheses fit perfectly over your natural teeth and cover up the front surfaces. They look and feel completely natural and the process of veneer placement is minimally-invasive. It usually takes just two appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks to have veneers placed, and they typically last 10-15+ years with proper care.

Straighten Your Smile


Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces for patients looking for a subtle, discreet orthodontic treatment. This method uses clear, plastic aligners (similar to a mouthguard or retainer) to gradually and gently straighten your teeth. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed to eat, drink, and brush your teeth, making them a very convenient way to correct the position of your teeth. With Invisalign, most patients can straighten their smiles in under a year. Call to learn more!

Can I Get Multiple Cosmetic Dental Treatments

at the Same Time?

Yes, it’s possible to get multiple cosmetic dental treatments at the same time. For example, you may want to combine teeth whitening with orthodontic treatment to achieve the smile you desire. However, it’s important to discuss with your dentist about the risks and benefits before undergoing any treatment to ensure that it’s safe and effective.

Who Is a Good Candidate for

Cosmetic Dental Treatments?

Anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their teeth can be a good candidate for cosmetic dental treatments. That said, there are certain conditions that make a person especially suited for these treatments. For example, if you have misaligned teeth, diverse shapes, and sizes to your teeth, stained or discolored teeth, a gap between your teeth, missing teeth, wear and tear on your teeth such as chips or breaks, and other aesthetic disregards; then cosmetic dental treatments may be right for you.

However, it's important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for every type of cosmetic dental treatment. Dr. Stuckey can help you determine which treatment is right for you based on your goals and oral health.
