"Cosmetic dentistry" implies that procedures are done only for the sake of appearance. We prefer the term aesthetic dentistry; this reflects the idea that form follows function. Teeth are elegant structures, formed with specific purposes. When the function of teeth is optimized, appearance improves as well. Cosmetic procedures done without an eye for function and preservation will not last. We are experts in determining what will work for you and your unique situation. It is our mission to provide you with a smile you can be proud of that will last a lifetime. All the pictures in our smile gallery are actual cases done by Dr. Grote in our office.
