Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

  • Dental Bonding: This quick, straightforward cosmetic treatment is the easiest option for people who want to improve the appearance of a discolored or slightly chipped tooth. The procedure involves the application of tooth-colored resin bonded to the tooth using adhesives and high intensity curing light. Learn more about dental bonding here.
  • Porcelain Veneers: These are wafer-thin porcelain laminates custom-made for your teeth to provide resilience and strength, while recreating the natural look of your teeth. It is the perfect choice for patients who want an immediate smile transformation. Learn more about veneers.
  • Inlays & Onlays: Both treatments are considered alternative options to full restorations. They fall somewhere between dental crowns and dental fillings, perfect for repairing damage that is not too drastic. Learn more about Inlays and Onlays Restorations.

Dental Bonding

Bonding is an alternative to veneers, and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or disarranged.

How does it work?

The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.


The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair.

Dental Inlays & Onlays

When more than half of the tooth’s biting surface is damaged a dentist will often use an inlay or onlay.

Porcelain inlays or onlays are recommended when a filling is not enough and a crown is not needed. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain, rather than metal amalgam or white composite. Porcelain is nearly impossible to distinguish between the filling and the tooth because of its astonishingly natural appearance.

Difference Between Inlays and Onlays

The overlying difference between onlays and inlays is that they differ in size. Inlays are smaller, filling cavities that reside inside the tooth’s cusps. Onlays are larger and will extend to the outer surface of a tooth. Onlays are generally needed when there is a more severe level of decay. After an initial appointment, your dentist will be able to conclude if you are in need of an inlay or an onlay based on the decay that has taken place.

What are inlays & onlays?

Inlays and onlays can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. These pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.

Traditionally, gold has been the material of choice for these. In recent years, however, porcelain has become increasingly popular due to its strength and color, which can potentially match the natural color of your teeth.

How are inlays & onlays applied?

Two appointments are necessary to complete the procedure. During the first visit, the filling being replaced or the damaged or decaying area of the tooth is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the inlay or onlay. To ensure proper fit and bite, an impression of the tooth is made by the dentist, and sent to a lab for fabrication. The dentist will then apply a temporary sealant on the tooth and schedule the next appointment.

At the second appointment, the temporary sealant is removed. Dr. Sorber will then make sure that the inlay or onlay fits correctly. If the fit is satisfactory, the inlay or onlay will be bonded to the tooth with a strong resin and polished to a smooth finish.


Traditional fillings can reduce the strength of a natural tooth by up to 50 percent. As an alternative, inlays and onlays, which are bonded directly onto the tooth using special high-strength resins, can actually increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75 percent. As a result, they can last from 10 to 30 years. In some cases, where the damage to the tooth is not extensive enough to merit an entire crown, onlays can provide a very good alternative.


Porcelain Veneers

A beautiful lady with Veneers

Never again will you feel the need to hide your smile because of stained, distorted, or gapped teeth.  Your smile is meant to be shared with the world. Our goal is to leave our patients with a smile that they are proud of. Porcelain veneers can fix those minor imperfections, with a natural tooth-colored overlay. This is a versatile cosmetic option, bringing your desired smile to life.

Veneers can help you with any of the following imperfections:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Slight tooth misalignment
  • Small teeth gaps
  • Irregularly shaped teeth

What are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer is a wafer-thin shell made from materials that give it a natural tooth color, making appearance corrections unnoticeable. These shells cover the surface of teeth, adjusting the size or shape of teeth.

Will they look like normal teeth?

When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.

How durable are porcelain veneers?

With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.

Our doctors will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.

Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.

Veneers- The Process

First Appointment:

Your initial appointment with your dentist will include an examination to see if a porcelain veneer is the best option for you, keeping your desires and health in mind. Sometimes an x-ray is needed during this initial appointment.

Tooth Preparation:

The tooth in need of the veneer will be cleaned, polished, and roughened up so that it can eventually stick to the veneer. An impression of the tooth is taken to have a customized veneer created.


Once the veneer is ready for placement, it is cemented into place and bonded to your natural tooth.

Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.

A New Smile:

When you look in the mirror, you’ll be pleased to see that the imperfections have disappeared almost as if they never existed.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening in Denver

What Is Teeth Whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

If you have ever wished that your smile were whiter and brighter, it might be right for you. Through professional whitening, we can lighten staining and discoloration caused by various factors, such as:

  • Natural aging process
  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Consumption of certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee, and soda
  • Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
  • Illness and other medical conditions
  • Certain medications
  • Fluorosis

In-Office and Take Home Teeth Whitening

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, we offer both in office whitening and Zoom! Whitening take home whitening treatments.

How is Teeth Whitening Done?

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each day or night for about 30 minutes to a few hours depending on the chosen gel. After a week or two, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.

What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

Any cosmetic procedure has the capability of enhancing the beauty of your appearance. Teeth whitening can create the confidence that comes with having a beautiful, natural-looking smile. The procedure is non-invasive and only requires touch-ups every several months to maintain your beautiful new smile.

Would I Benefit From Teeth Whitening?

Almost everyone is a good candidate for teeth whitening treatment. Individuals who may want to strongly consider teeth whitening treatment are anyone who has stained or yellowing teeth, or if the natural wearing of your teeth is becoming noticeable.

Home & After Care

Whether you use an at-home whitening system or opt for treatment in our office, you can help maintain the results by brushing, flossing, and rinsing daily. It's also recommended to avoid acidic and tannin-rich foods and beverages such as:

  • Certain drinks including wine, tea, and coffee
  • Carbonated beverages (dark and light-colored sodas)
  • Berries and other strongly-colored foods
  • Sauces that can stain (soy sauce, tomato, curries)

These foods and beverages aren't always avoidable, so you can try rinsing with water in between or after drinks and meals if you're not able to brush.
