Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments for the Smile of Your Dreams


Looking for a beautiful smile without the pain and tooth shaving that traditional veneers require? The answer is Lumineers, a proven, durable and safe way to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking and permanent white smile. Traditional veneers require that the teeth be cut down, removing significant amounts of the tooth, so that a veneer (covering layer) can be placed over the remaining tissue. This approach is not reversible, as part of the tooth is now gone. Plus, this technique requires significant numbing and can be painful. With Lumineers there are fewer shots to no shots required and minimal drilling to no drilling or shaving of the tooth. A light etching on the surface, to provide grip, is all that is required. This means that they are easy, quick and painless to install, giving you a beautiful, new smile that will last for years and years. Transforming your smile can be done in just 2 easy visits. One to make the precision, custom mold and determine a natural color and shade match. Then the second visit to check fit and color, if everything works then the Lumineers are painlessly and quickly installed. As a cosmetic dentistry clinic we absolutely love the ease and quality that Lumineers provide. We know that you and the world around you will love them too.

Teeth Whitening

At Watkins Family Dentistry, we are one of the select clinics licensed to use the “Sapphire Whitening System”,  which was developed by the makers of Lumineers. This system uses a pro-grade teeth whitening gel and a powerful Sapphire Plasma Arc Light to brighten your smile by two-to-five shades in just one visit. While the bleaching gel is effective on its own, the overall results are boosted significantly by the interaction of the light and the bleaching agents. This system is one of the quickest on the market, often requiring only 30 minutes of processing time. The strong 35% peroxide gel is applied, exposure to the Sapphire Light takes place and a short time later–bright, white teeth! We know how important maintaining that bright smile is to our patients. That’s why we offer a fantastic deal to make that happen: A LIFETIME OF TEETH WHITENING FOR JUST $650! Plus we have in-home kits that are amongst the best available anywhere, to help you keep that smile looking great year round.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Just like an oil painting’s beauty is accented and enhanced by a great frame, so is your smile improved by reducing wrinkles and deep creases around the mouth. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles set in. Often this process has been accelerated by smoking, sun exposure and other physical issues-leaving an otherwise beautiful smile surrounded by wrinkles and creases. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Watkins has been able to work with both men and women to soften those lines and eliminate wrinkles. We really enjoy the opportunity to create a rejuvenated look through the careful use of Botox to ease wrinkles and Restylane to plump lips and reduce creases around the mouth. Interested in reducing unsightly wrinkles and creases? Give us a call and we will be happy to arrange a complimentary evaluation and consultation.

Our staff has trained with the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) and is fully certified to safely administer these products. Depending on your unique concerns and goals, Dr. Watkins might recommend a treatment that can add youthful volume to the face, stop nerve signals to relax lines and wrinkles, or plump sunken areas.
