Dental Veneers


Dental veneers are kind of the “holy grail” of cosmetic dentistry procedures because they can correct a number of flaws in your smile. These tough but thin shells, made of porcelain or composite, are bonded to your teeth to conceal dental perfections such as:

  • Discoloration
  • Minor chips or cracks
  • Irregularities in shape
  • Gaps between teeth

At Lakeside Dentistry, we offer two types of dental veneers: porcelain and composite. When you come in for your consultation, we can discuss which kind best fits your needs.

Porcelain dental veneers are hailed for their durability and stain-resistance. With proper care, they can last for 15 years or more! But our composite dental veneers can give you a beautiful smile in just one visit because they require less preparation of your teeth. Plus, they’re simple to repair if they sustain minor damage, and they typically cost about half as much as porcelain dental veneers.

Teeth Whitening


Removing years of stains from coffee, tea, red wine, and other problematic foods and drinks is one of the easiest and fastest ways to revive your smile. And while it might be tempting to try an over-the-counter, do-it-yourself bleaching treatment, it’s safest and most effective to whiten your teeth professionally.

At Lakeside Dentistry, we’re proud to offer in-office teeth whitening treatments using Opalescence products. The whitening agent we use for these treatments is more powerful than anything you’ll find in take-home bleaching treatments, and you’ll have a brilliantly whiter smile in about an hour!

The holidays are a great time to stop in for an in-office whitening treatment. The results are dramatic, and your new-and-improved smile will be sure to stun at holiday parties and family get-togethers.

We also offer custom at-home teeth whitening treatments if you like the convenience of over-the-counter gels or strips but want something that whitens more effectively and more safely.


Teeth Contouring, Crown Lengthening And “Gummy Smile” Treatment


Are irregularly shaped teeth preventing you from smiling? Or maybe you have a “gummy” smile, where you see more of your gums than your teeth when you grin? The professionals at Lakeside Dentistry can help!

Using dental lasers, we’re able to gently and precisely reshape your teeth or gums for a more appealing smile. And while it might sound scary to undergo a dental treatment where lasers are involved, this state-of-the-art technology actually minimizes bleeding and discomfort!


Tooth Bonding


This fix is similar to dental veneers, but treatment is quick and cost-effective. Tooth bonding involves using layers of composite to conceal dental imperfections. This can include chips, minor cracks, stains or discoloration, short teeth, misshapen teeth, and gaps in your smile.

This treatment is completely reversible and can be completed in a single appointment!




If you never had braces as a teenager, or if your teeth have shifted since you underwent orthodontic treatment, it’s not too late to get a straighter smile! We use BPA-free plastic aligners to correct crooked teeth. You’ll be able to get the results you want without having to commit to a mouthful of metal.


A Beautiful Smile Changes Everything


Even more so than getting a new haircut or a new wardrobe, fixing the parts of your smile that make you self-conscious will give you a new lease on life. Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to reclaim your confidence and in some cases even improve the health of your teeth.

When you trust Lakeside Dentistry for your smile makeover, we’ll spend some time getting to know you and what goals you have for your smile. Then, we’ll suggest some treatments to help you reach those goals. We can even create a wax model before any work begins so you know what the results will look like.

If you’re ready to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of, give us a call at 507-316-6444 to schedule a consultation. You can also use our convenient online form.
