Not only have Dr. Terry Deeter and Dr. Matt Deeter all received extensive training in cosmetic dentistry but also they can help you achieve beautiful results for your new smile.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry which deals with the aesthetics of your smile. Traditional dentistry uses materials and techniques that create obvious dental restorations, such as metal amalgam fillings. Cosmetic dentistry allows us to restore your teeth and your smile in a way that looks and feels natural. We use dental materials such as porcelain that matches your tooth enamel and we can make it into virtually any shape.
What Can Aesthetic Dentistry Correct?
Cosmetic dentistry can correct virtually any cosmetic problem with your teeth. We offer a diverse range of treatments that can be as simple as whitening your teeth or as complex as replacing a missing tooth. For instance, some of the more common cosmetic dental problems include:
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Missing teeth
- Teeth which are too small or too large
- Gaps between teeth
Common Cosmetic Dental Problems
A beautiful smile not only helps you make a favorable first impression, but it can boost your self-confidence. If you are unhappy with imperfections in your smile, we can help you correct these issues through a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures.
The following is a list of common cosmetic dental problems which may impact your smile:
Our patients are often happy with their smile with the exception of discoloration. Whether your tooth discoloration is slight or severe, tooth whitening can give your teeth the healthy, bright shine that you desire.
We can repair chipped teeth with tooth bonding or through a porcelain dental inlay or onlay. The pre-created piece of porcelain is colored to match the rest of your tooth. It is then applied with a strong dental adhesive to protect your tooth from breaking further.
Broken or cracked teeth
Tooth breakage is a fairly common occurrence. It is important to repair broken teeth as quickly as possible to prevent accelerated decay and damage to your other teeth and mouth tissue. A tooth crown is an obvious restoration for a broken tooth. It will surround and protect the base of your tooth to keep it healthy and functioning correctly.
Teeth which are too small or too large
Many patients who complain of gaps between their teeth actually have teeth which are too small for their mouth. You may also have teeth which are too large, causing them to overlap or jut out. For teeth which are too small, tooth bonding is often sufficient to build up the size of teeth. If your teeth are too large, our cosmetic dentists may recommend porcelain veneers. Veneers provide you with evenly sized and shaped teeth for a beautiful smile.
Gaps between teeth
Often, gaps between teeth can be repaired by using tooth bonding to build up the mass of the tooth on either side of the gap and close it.
Whether your teeth are crooked because they are the wrong size for your mouth or because they have simply positioned themselves at angles, porcelain veneers can be an ideal solution to your problem. Dr. Terry Deeter also offers orthodontic treatments to correct your crooked teeth.

Fountain of youth dentures
Deeter Dental is pleased to provide Fountain of Youth® dentures. These have elevated the fit, function, and predictability of replacement teeth. With FOY dentures, a dynamic impression is taken to capture the muscles in motion, thus leading to the best possible fit. Our individualized approach to creating lifelike dentures improves the aesthetic value of the smile as well as chewing and speaking function.
A smile makeover, sometimes referred to full mouth reconstruction, includes cosmetic dental treatments that go beyond routine prevention and response to dental problems. A smile makeover is uniquely suited to your concerns, objectives, preferences, and your natural facial anatomy and complexion. A smile makeover can achieve dramatic results on a physical and emotional level.
At Deeter Dental, we understand that your smile is important to you, and that confidence in the whiteness of your smile can make all the difference in how you respond to others. If you would like to correct tooth discoloration, we offer teeth whitening for our patients. We offer Opalescence® teeth whitening treatment, an at-home tooth whitener which uses a customized tray to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made porcelain shells that get bonded to the front surface of your teeth, creating a beautiful new smile. Deeter Dental works with two kinds of porcelain veneers: Direct & Indirect. The varied applications for this procedure make it an excellent option to help you correct just about any cosmetic dentistry problem you may have.
The most commonly used dental restoration for a broken or cracked tooth is a dental crown. At Deeter Dental, we know that a broken tooth can cause you to be self-conscious and even make eating difficult, so we offer you a variety of tooth crown options to help you start smiling again.
A dental bridge is one or more false teeth that are permanently placed between two healthy teeth in order to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Your bridge will be secured by dental crowns which are placed on your adjoining healthy teeth. On some occasions may be supported by dental implants.
Tooth bonding, also known as dental bonding, is an excellent option for repairing most minor flaws in your teeth, such as chips or gaps. Our Bismarck cosmetic dentists can apply tooth bonding to your teeth in a natural-looking way that matches the color of your tooth, creating a seamless correction that protects your tooth from additional breaking or chipping.
Because metal fillings are not only highly visible but potentially damaging to your teeth, the team at Deeter Dental recommends tooth-colored fillings to all our patients, and in many cases, we can even replace your old metal fillings within a single visit.
Porcelain Dental Inlays/Onlays
Porcelain dental inlays and onlays are another option available from Deeter Dental to replace your old metal fillings. Inlays and Onlays are a strong and stable option for minimal tooth reconstruction or filling.
A crooked gum line or gums which cover up too much of your teeth’s surface can make your smile look lopsided or reserved. Gum contouring removes a portion of your gums to create an even gum line that compliments the size and shape of your teeth. A corrected gum line can make your smile look straighter and can even change others’ perception of you.
