Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry can be used to straighten teeth, close gaps, brighten teeth, repair cracks and/or chips and more. Physical appearance is the most obvious benefit, but physical, emotional and mental health are also improved thanks to cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today to see which cosmetic dentistry services are best for you.

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dental care is a crucial aspect of maintaining good oral health. It involves regular check-ups, cleanings, and preventive measures to help prevent common dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay. Going to the dentist is a ritual that pays off. Regular teeth cleanings and examinations can prevent dental problems.

  • Veneers

    Veneers are thin covers that can be placed over the front of your teeth to hide chips, cracks and other imperfections. If you have misshapen teeth or teeth that have gaps between them, veneers can make your teeth appear more evenly spaced and more conventionally beautiful. Do you need cosmetic dentistry services in Opelika, AL? Call today to make an appointment with our dental professionals. We’ll evaluate your teeth and recommend services based on your individual dental goals.

  • Bleaching

    Teeth bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a cosmetic dental procedure that aims to lighten the color of teeth. Over time, teeth can become stained due to various factors such as consuming dark-colored foods and beverages, smoking, and aging. Teeth bleaching can significantly enhance your smile by removing stains and restoring a brighter, more confident appearance. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy the benefits of teeth bleaching for years to come.


    A root canal typically occurs when a cavity is large enough to affect the soft pulp in the tooth. We will have to clean out the pulp and then replace it with a composite material to ensure the mouth doesn’t become infected. Root canals are an effective way to preserve an ailing tooth. While root canal treatments can seem daunting for many people, they’re the best way to improve your oral health. The longer a dental issue continues, the more likely it is that the problem will lead to tooth loss.


    A dental crown is a thin cover that fits over a tooth, to protect damaged tooth enamel. Dental crowns are shaped to look just like natural teeth and they can be made the same color as natural teeth, as well. This means that dental crowns can be hard to distinguish from natural teeth, and if you have a tooth-colored crown, no one will be able to tell. Get your next dental crown installed by the dental professionals at Opelika Family Dental, to ensure it will last as long as possible.

  • Dental Implants

    An implant is another type of prosthetic tooth, used to replace a missing tooth. Implants function much like natural teeth, with a post that’s been inserted (and fused to) the jaw bone. The crown for the implant is matched to the other teeth in the mouth, so the color and shape is consistent with the surrounding teeth. Implants are maintained much like standard teeth, requiring regular flossing and brushing to stay clean.

  • Children’s Dentistry

    Pediatric dentists specialize in services that take care of young infants, children, and adolescents – ensuring that their oral healthcare is progressing smoothly throughout their formative years. Infants must receive attentive care early on in their lives to properly assess whether their health is at risk of developing any malformations or complications which could exacerbate later in life. Pediatric dentists are specialists in tending to the teeth, gums, and mouths of young adults and children, often requiring a higher level of care.
