Cosmetic Dentistry in Tuscaloosa, AL

Health and beauty go hand-in-hand.

We create functional dentistry that feels great, but we also understand it is important to look your best in today’s modern, digitally connected world. Because your smile is your calling card, looking your best can make all the difference in how you present yourself.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Most people experience a darkening smile as they age. You might not even use tobacco or drink coffee, but sodas and certain foods can cause your smile to turn yellow and appear aged. Fortunately, a white smile is easy to obtain with professional teeth whitening. Unlike over-the-counter products, professional whitening provides consistent and predictable results.

Some smiles brighten more easily than others, but most patients will experience some improvement with professional teeth whitening. We can evaluate your smile and share your potential results. We will also take a before-and-after shade so you can measure the difference!

At Mark Tickle, DMD, Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we create custom trays for our patients. Having custom whitening trays keeps your whitening gel on the surface of your teeth where it belongs! When you wear your trays for one or more hours for a few days each week, you can achieve your maximum whiteness in just a few weeks.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

When you notice small flaws in your smile, we can make some minor repairs using a conservative treatment called cosmetic dental bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding preserves your natural tooth structure because we use tooth-colored composite material to add to your existing tooth structure. This gives us the ability to fix gaps, chips, and other minor imperfections without invasive treatment.

Porcelain Dental Veneers

When patients seek to dramatically change their smiles, porcelain veneers are a great option. They address a wide range of cosmetic dental issues such as discoloration, inconsistent spacing, and a misaligned appearance. 

Porcelain veneers completely cover the front of your natural teeth. Most patients opt for two to eight veneers, depending on the shape of their smiles. Each veneer is completely natural in appearance, and we design them to complement your own teeth. 

When you and Dr. Mark Tickle design your new smile, you can discuss the shape, shade, and appearance of the veneers that will give you the results you want. His expertise will guarantee that your veneers are a good fit. Having a comfortable and functional bite is just as important as having beautiful teeth!

With the proper treatment, your new smile will provide you with comfort, beauty, and confidence for many years to come.
