While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth, and smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry

While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth, and smile. Dr. Crystal Dental can accomplish this goal with our skills, artistry, and science, all designed to your unique treatment plan. Our team, just like most dental professionals in the industry today, will focus on preserving as much of your natural teeth as reasonably possible, to achieve an authentic looking smile, while maintaining or improving your surrounding bone and gum tissue. General or family dentists address dental problems that require necessary treatment, whereas cosmetic dentistry provides elective, or desired, treatments or services. Many times, however, cosmetic dentistry can also treat bite problems and restore strength to teeth that have had a lot of dentistry over the years.


The entire team at Dr. Crystal Dental radiates compassion and enthusiasm. Every member embraces your individual comfort and dental needs. We seek balance in our practice, our procedures, and your health. You will find your entire dental experience with us comforting from start to finish. We balance exceptional, personalized dental care with state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Call us today at 440-974-4449 to schedule your appointment for an evaluation regarding the benefits of cosmetic dentistry for you. You can conveniently find us at 7223 Center Street, Mentor, Ohio, 44060.


Technological advancements in natural-looking, tooth-colored dental materials make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable and predictable than in years past. Additionally, we are now using more conservative techniques to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible, depending upon your specific clinical situation.

Why Might You Consider Cosmetic Dentistry?

If your teeth are stained, discolored, worn, chipped, broken, misaligned, misshapen, or have gaps between them, modern cosmetic dentistry can give you a better smile.

  • You have cracked or broken teeth.
  • You are dealing with a missing tooth or more than one.
  • Your teeth look misshapen or disproportionately sized.
  • Your teeth have had large fillings, that are changing over time, or possibly leaving the teeth weak.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Crystal Dental and our patients who have undergone cosmetic dental restoration will agree, there are valuable advantages to restoring an aesthetically pleasing smile. Some of the more popular benefits of cosmetic dentistry include:


  • The increased functionality of your teeth.
  • A decreased risk of decay and infection.
  • Your teeth will look healthy and natural again.
  • An increase in the strength of your teeth and bones.
  • Improved protection of your existing teeth.
  • The correct alignment and balance of your bite.
  • A decrease in the wear and tear of your teeth.

In addition to these benefits, your self-confidence and self-esteem increases when you realize you will not need to hide your smile any longer.  Your smile once again becomes an invaluable asset in your personal, social, and professional endeavors.

Which Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Is Best for You?

There are a few factors to consider when Dr. Crystal Dental designs your cosmetic dentistry treatment plan. Not all procedures are appropriate for every patient, and you could have other dental concerns that would eliminate specific procedures from your plan. Before any cosmetic dentistry procedure will be performed by our team, the health and integrity of your teeth, gums, and jawbone will need to be evaluated.


To create and design your personal treatment plan, we start with a consultation appointment. At this visit, Dr. Crystal Dental will complete a series of examinations to evaluate your mouth and oral health in its current condition. These exams could include:


  • A comprehensive oral exam including teeth, gums, face, neck, and all soft tissues.
  • A periodontal, an exam of your gums, and an oral cancer exam.
  • X-rays, the number and types depending on your specific need.
  • Digital scans of both arches.
  • A bite analysis and a TMJ analysis.
  • Photography
  • Identifying and documenting existing issues and imperfections.
  • Discussion regarding your concerns and your desired results

After the necessary exams are completed, we will create a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan perfect for achieving your desired smile. You may require more extensive restorations due to the loss of functionality or the spread of disease and decay. The necessary exams will establish a baseline for your plan.


If you currently have healthy teeth, you may only be looking for a restoration option that addresses abnormally shaped teeth or stains. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry procedures, each patient is unique. It is essential for your cosmetic dental plan to be designed for your individual circumstances to achieve the best possible result.

Comprehensive Dentistry

Comprehensive dentistry with Dr. Crystal Schneider, involves the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. She believes that preventive care is the most important aspect of comprehensive dentistry. Dr. Schneider aims to identify and treat problems while they’re still small, which can save you time, money and more extensive dental treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry

An attractive smile can boost your confidence, help you make better first impressions on others, and improve your personal and professional life. We provide several cosmetic dental treatments that can subtly enhance your smile, and there are many other more dramatic treatments, often called “smile makeovers,” that can give you the smile of your dreams.

Specialized Dentistry

Missing teeth can take the joy out of the everyday things we love, from smiling and talking with confidence to eating our favorite foods. All of these things can become easier again with specialized dental care. Dr. Schneider offers advanced treatments that will not just restore your smile to its former health – they’ll make it look and feel even better than before!

How Long Will the Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Take?

The length of each cosmetic procedure will vary. If your treatment plan requires more than one restoration appointment, the process of achieving your healthy smile may take a little longer. With dental technology constantly improving and the updates that we continue to implement at Dr. Crystal Dental, the process of completing most cosmetic procedures continues to become more efficient.


Each patient will differ in the procedures their plan recommends. Teeth whitening is quick and simple where a dental implant may take several months.
