What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that brings a positive change to your smile by fixing aesthetic and functional issues. Two of the most sought-after cosmetic dentistry procedures are teeth whitening and veneers. 

Teeth Whitening

As the name suggests, teeth whitening is the process of getting rid of stains on your tooth enamel to give you a brighter, whiter smile. 

Here’s how the procedure works at Picacho Dental: 

  • Dr. Lemmon will begin with a thorough oral cleaning before starting the whitening procedure.
  • Next, Dr. Lemmon will apply a concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution and let it rest for a few minutes. 
  • Once the whitening solution is rinsed off, you will walk away with a smile three to seven shades brighter than when you started.


Veneers are thin, film-like chips applied on the front surface of your teeth that whiten them, cover gaps and imperfections, and improve their overall appearance. 

To apply veneers, Dr. Lemmon will scrape off part of your tooth enamel with a specialized tool. Then, he will paste the veneer films onto your teeth.

Veneers can fix teeth imperfections and also offer a host of functional benefits like protecting your teeth and improving your confidence.
