As always kind and considerate. Gets me in timely and works with me to control the damage from my Sjogren’s ( immune system compromised my moisture glands so my mouth has very little saliva to protect my teeth). Doing awesome! Great dentist and staff.

A Closer Look at Your Treatment Options A Range of Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an incredibly versatile solution for chips, gaps, discoloration, and more. The treatment involves bonding thin, enamel-colored porcelain shells to the front surface of your teeth. All of our veneers are custom-designed to match your natural teeth and are crafted from premium materials at our trusted dental lab. Depending on your needs, our cosmetic dentist can place a single veneer or a set of veneers to enhance your smile. 


  • Can treat many issues at once
  • Offers natural-looking results
  • With proper care, veneers can last 10 years or more


  • They are priced individually, so treatment for multiple veneers can get expensive
  • The procedure involves some enamel removal, so it is not reversible
  • They are used only for cosmetic purposes on anterior teeth, not molars

Dental Crowns

A dental crown can hide many types of dental imperfections and also strengthen a tooth. Unlike a porcelain veneer, a dental crown caps the entire tooth structure rather than just the front surface. Our dentist may recommend dental crowns if you have cracks, chips, wear, or other damage that could compromise the health of your teeth. Our modern crowns are made from natural-looking porcelain and will look virtually indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth.


  • If the crown will provide health benefits, it may qualify for insurance coverage
  • Can also be used as a restorative dentistry treatment
  • With proper care, crowns can last 15 years or more


  • Require extensive alteration of the tooth

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile. Whitening is effective for surface stains, and yellowing caused by repeated exposure to dark-colored foods and drinks or tobacco products. Unlike over-the-counter whitening products, professional treatment is incredibly effective and can lighten the teeth by several shades in under an hour. Patients can choose to have their whitening done in the office to see the fastest results or take-home treatment to whiten at their own convenience. 


  • Relatively inexpensive 
  • Quick treatment
  • Dramatic results


  • Only treats extrinsic stains 
  • Doesn't address other cosmetic dental issues


If you want to close gaps or straighten your teeth without wearing braces, consider Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign uses a series of flexible trays to gently move the teeth into the proper position. Patients will wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day to gradually perfect their alignment and balance their bite. While orthodontics is a more extensive cosmetic treatment, the results can dramatically improve your self-esteem and oral health. Dr. Krendl is an Invisalign-certified provider and a trusted source for your orthodontic treatment. 


  • Results are permanent with proper maintenance
  • Treatment may be covered by insurance


  • Results can take a year or more

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an affordable procedure to mask stains, gaps, and other minor dental imperfections. Bonding consists of a tooth-colored composite resin–the same material that is used for a white filling. Our cosmetic dentist will apply the bonding to your enamel and artfully sculpt the material to look like a natural part of your teeth. Bonding is very easy and does not require any downtime or waiting periods. Our dentist often recommends treatment for patients who are unsure about porcelain veneers, or those who are looking to ease into cosmetic dentistry. 


  • Quick; treatment can typically be completed in one hour at our Littleton office
  • Inexpensive


  • Re-treatment may be needed in about five years
  • Results don't look as realistic as veneers

Smile Makeover

A custom smile makeover can address everything ranging from more complex problems down to the smallest details. Each smile makeover is a custom-designed treatment that combines multiple techniques found in cosmetic and restorative dentistry solutions. Patients can correct all the insecurities they have about their teeth in a single streamlined procedure without needing multiple trips to various dentists' offices. 


  • All cosmetic dental issues can be addressed in one comprehensive treatment plan
  • A better value than having procedures done separately, saving time and materials


  • Costlier than other treatments due to the combination of multiple procedures

Cosmetic Dentistry Candidates

While we want every patient to achieve the beautiful smile they have always dreamed of, some patients are not initially good candidates for cosmetic dentistry treatments. You may be a good candidate if you:

Are in good oral health.

You must be free of oral health concerns such as tooth decay and gum disease before we recommend any cosmetic procedures. Our Littleton dental office offers general and restorative treatments to help you qualify for cosmetic dentistry.

Have aesthetic concerns.

Good candidates for cosmetic dentistry have primarily aesthetic concerns. If you have issues impacting your oral health and function, we might recommend fillings or dental crowns for damaged teeth or dental implants for missing teeth. Dental implants are recognized as the gold standard to treat tooth loss.

Are You Ready to Get Started?

A beautiful smile can profoundly improve your personal and professional life and give you the confidence you can only dream of. Our cosmetic dentist offers a wide range of services to achieve your goals and will work within your budget to develop a custom treatment plan. If you are ready to show off a dazzling picture-perfect smile, schedule a consultation at our Littleton, CO, dentist's office today. Reach us online, or by calling:

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Q. How much do cosmetic dentistry treatments cost?

A. Because each treatment plan can be so different, it is impossible to give an accurate quote without a consultation. For example, teeth whitening will not cost as much as porcelain veneers, and someone getting one veneer will not pay as much as someone getting multiple veneers. After your initial consultation at our Littleton office, your dentist will craft a custom treatment plan. Then, we will be able to provide you with an accurate quote so you can properly plan and budget for your treatment. 

Q. Do cosmetic dentistry treatments hurt?

A. No. Most, like teeth whitening and veneers, are practically painless. However, some treatments, like dental crowns, require more in-depth alteration of the tooth. In this case, your dentist will thoroughly numb the area before treatment. Our Littleton dental practice also offers sedation options to help ensure you are completely comfortable during your visit. Speak to our team about our sedation options if you think you may benefit. We want your experience to be positive and as comfortable as possible. 

Q. How long do cosmetic treatments last?

A. This will vary based on your treatment. However, with proper dental care, like brushing and flossing daily and regular dental exams and cleanings, treatments like dental crowns and porcelain veneers can last for up to 15 years or more. You can also extend the life of your cosmetic treatments by minimizing highly pigmented foods and drinks and by ceasing all tobacco products. Your dental team will provide you with the information you need to properly maintain your smile so you can enjoy your beautiful results for as long as possible.

Q. How long do cosmetic treatments take?

A. Again, this will depend on your procedure. Treatments like veneers or dental crowns can take as little as two appointments. With professional whitening, patients can achieve noticeable results in as little as one appointment. Invisalign treatment typically takes about 12 to 18 months to complete.
