Smileistry gives patients beautiful smile solutions. We employ modern tools to help patients visualize the desired result; then, we collaborate with them to achieve that outcome. Using veneers, bonding, crowns, and whitening, we solve smile issues. There is a metamorphosis — a promise fulfilled.


Veneers are thin shells that fit over the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance and create a beautiful smile. They bond to your teeth and change their length, size, color, shape, and function.


A composite resin may be used to repair a chipped, cracked, or otherwise broken tooth. It can also help with discolored teeth, gaps between the teeth, and even lengthening a tooth that’s shorter than the rest.


Dental crowns are caps placed over damaged teeth. Crowns are used to protect, cover, and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve a problem. Porcelain crowns will be matched to nearby teeth.


Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel. It is an ideal way to initially enhance the beauty of your smile.

Before & After

Here are just a few of the before and after photos of the smiles we’ve changed. We’d love to be able to add your new beautiful smile to our portfolio!


I made the mistake of trying to straighten my teeth myself with a take-home kit! I was so upset at what happened, but I did not want to undergo full orthodontics to correctly position my teeth. When I met Dr. Braun and she suggested a few changes we could make that would help everything look straight and natural, I was excited to know all of my options. I cried with joy when I saw the final result and could not stop smiling!

Jodi M.

I work as a dental assistant and have seen many dentists perform dental procedures. When I worked with Dr. Braun and observed her techniques, I knew I wanted her to fix my pointy incisors. I have been embarrassed when I smile, and now, I love smiling and showing off my normal and beautifully matching veneers. It was much easier than I expected, and I love the result!

Giselle A.

I was very concerned about my front teeth as I got older, and thinking they would split up the middle where I could see the vertical lines! I had no idea how easy fixing them would be and that my smile would be repaired and so much sturdier! Thank you, Dr. Braun.

Jim B.

My 10-year-old child fell off his bike and broke his front tooth; I was fearful he would lose it! When Dr. Braun did her magic with bonding it back, I was so excited and relieved to know his tooth would stay intact and his smile would still be attractive while he grows up.

Bradly G.

My mother, at 78, wanted veneers! She was very self-conscious about her receding gums and spaces that showed when smiling. I recommended she see Dr. Braun. Being a dentist specialist, I knew Dr. Braun would do the very best for my mother’s smile! She is extremely happy she pursued the smile of her dreams!

Michelle O.

I am a CEO, and interface with the public a great deal, and started to notice how worn down my teeth were, and with discoloration especially at the gum line. They were getting sensitive, too; I had to do something but did not like the idea of crowns. Dr. Braun had me “test drive” so that I could visualize what a bonded veneer could do for me. They both lightened the color of my teeth and restored their more youthful shape. I couldn’t be happier.

Sam P.

For years, I have been dissatisfied with my front teeth. In the 1990s a dentist had crowned them, and I just was not happy with the outcome. This many years later, I decided to give another try, and Dr. Braun really delivered on the esthetic demands that I had. My gums showed a lot when I smiled, and my teeth never looked natural with my old crowns. Now they look so real; my friends say I look younger and thought I had plastic surgery!

Linda R.

I have been in the business of dentistry for many years and know that when a skilled esthetic dentist and lab tech work in harmony, the results can be amazing. In my late 20’s, my teeth were fixed to disguise a missing incisor. Over time, those crowns looked bulky and fake, and I knew they could be improved upon. Dr. Braun redesigned my smile so that by my wedding day, all of my photographs show how happy I am! I am so glad I found Dr. Braun in time to help me prepare for my big day.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are happy to answer all of your questions about attaining a new, beautiful smile. Here are a few that we are often asked:

What is Cosmetic Dentistry, and how is it different from General Dentistry?2023-06-27T01:39:36+00:00

Cosmetic dentistry combines both art and science to give you a healthy, aesthetic, flawless smile. While general dentistry is aimed at maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, cosmetic dentistry provides comprehensive treatment options that improve and preserve the way your smile looks and feels.

Common cosmetic treatments include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Contouring/tooth reshaping
  • Bonding
  • Veneers
  • Tooth colored fillings
  • Smile makeovers

A cosmetic dentist is trained to safely and effectively provide a variety of treatments that are designed to enhance your smile. If you have missing teeth, you feel that your teeth are crooked, or you’re an adult looking for an alternative to braces, a cosmetic dentist can help you achieve the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

How long will each cosmetic treatment take?2023-07-07T00:35:45+00:00

Will my insurance cover cosmetic dental care?2023-07-07T00:36:36+00:00

Insurance coverage and out-of-pocket expenses for cosmetic treatment vary. You will know all of your treatment costs up-front so that you can choose the best payment plan for your needs and your budget.

Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?2023-07-07T00:37:31+00:00

Patients who experience the most benefit from having their teeth whitened:

  • Maintain good dental health (i.e. brush three times a day, floss, receive regular dental checkups every six months, etc.)
  • May suffer from slightly discolored, or yellowing tooth color
  • Wish to improve the look of their smile for aesthetic purposes
Are there any side effects from teeth whitening?2023-07-07T00:38:13+00:00

Teeth whitening is a safe, effective procedure, and does not typically include any major side effects. Minor side effects may consist of:

  • Transitory Increased tooth sensitivity to hot or cold (especially where exposed roots are concerned)
  • White spots on the surface of the teeth (a potential side effect of at-home whitening systems)
Will I need whitening repeated?2023-07-07T00:38:56+00:00

Repetition over time is essential to achieving and maintaining the best results.

Do veneers weaken teeth?2023-07-07T00:42:22+00:00

Veneers strengthen teeth that have been heavily restored over many years. Veneers are minimally invasive and enhance strength in the long term.


Can I ‘try on’ my new teeth?2023-07-07T00:43:06+00:00

A “snap on smile model” is made for your approval prior to performing any final treatment. 


Will my teeth function better than they have been? Better occlusion?2023-07-07T00:43:50+00:00

For lasting results, the function of your teeth between upper and lower arches [your bite] will be treated when eliminating “improper bite” is  important to a successful outcome.

Does bonding last forever?2023-07-07T00:45:13+00:00

Once bonding is performed to a tooth surface, patients, in partnership with their dental team should remain committed to caring for these teeth over time. 

Bonding materials are long lasting, often decades with the appropriate care. All bonding materials have a shelf-life and will require updating  depending on the patient’s age, diet and personal preferences. 


What if I have periodontal issues?2023-07-07T00:46:11+00:00

Periodontal infections need to be treated prior to any cosmetic treatments. 

Post periodontal infection treatment and healing, cosmetic treatments are appropriate and can help create a more youthful smile if there is any detracting gum recession in the smile zone.
