Cosmetic Dentistry in West Des Moines

Many of Dr. Johnson’s patients have healthy natural teeth, but due to something benign like coffee staining or a chipped tooth, they may suffer from the embarrassment of cosmetic dental problems. Your West Des Moines cosmetic dentist wants you to smile with confidence, so she offers several procedures that will improve cosmetic issues, like tooth discoloration and misshapen/damaged teeth:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening: for minor surface staining from coffee or tea, Dr. Johnson will prepare customized trays for you to take and use in the comfort of your home. Professional whitening offers excellent results and works on most surface stains. It has more concentrated active ingredient than over-the-counter whitening kits.


Bonding: if your stains are more significant, or they do not respond to surface teeth whitening treatments, Dr. Johnson may apply a layer of the same restorative material used in fillings to create a new, unstained surface. Bonding can also repair chipped teeth.

Teeth Contouring

Teeth contouring: if you have any imperfections in the edges of your teeth, your West Des Moines dentist will use an instrument to gently smooth the edges and give them the perfect shape.


Veneers are similar to bonding in that placing veneers involves applying a thin layer of material over the teeth to eliminate surface imperfections. However, veneers are more luminous, as well as stronger and less likely to stain.
