Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialty that involves procedures to improve, reshape, and enhance your smile. Whether you want to cover up flaws, repair chipped or cracked teeth, or brighten your smile, Dr. Murray can create a subtle or dramatic change with one or more cosmetic procedures.

From porcelain veneers to teeth whitening services, patients can transform their smile with cosmetic dentistry. Plus, at MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Murray uses Virtual Smile Designing technology to show patients exactly how they’ll look before they even start treatment.

Which cosmetic dentistry services do you offer?

Dr. Murray provides bonding, tooth restoration, and enhancement procedure that can either cover up or fix common flaws. Whether you have a “gummy smile” or want to set gaps and chips, Dr. Murray has trained at the Las Vegas Institute in some of the most advanced dental procedures and offers a wide range of custom cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as:

Porcelain veneers and LumineersⓇ

Veneers and Lumineers are fragile, shell-like pieces of porcelain shaped to look like your natural teeth. They are applied directly to the front of the tooth to mask flaws such as discoloration, misshapen teeth, gaps, and cracks.


An all-ceramic crown can strengthen a tooth after tooth decay or a root canal. CEREC crowns are made right in the office with one of the most advanced dental restorative systems available.

Direct tooth bonding

Dr. Murray can apply a tooth-colored composite resin material over a decaying, discolored, or chipped tooth to strengthen it and improve its appearance.

Teeth whitening

Dr. Murray offers Zoom! and Opalescence Boost in-office whitening treatments that can whiten your teeth by several shades in just one office visit. He also provides take-home trays for gradual whitening.

Gum recontouring and crown lengthening

If your gums are too high or too low, Dr. Murray can reshape them or cut away excess gum tissue. Crown lengthening can help treat a “gummy smile” by removing excess tissue with a laser.

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

Many patients visit Dr. Murray because they feel self-conscious about their flaws and want to stop hiding their smile. Cosmetic dentistry is ideal for patients who need a smile makeover and want to maintain a healthy, vibrant smile for years to come.
