Are you unhappy with your smile? Cosmetic dentistry could turn that around.cosmetic dentistry

Are you wondering what our Lincoln, NE, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Thomas Blakenau, can do for your smile? We offer a full range of services to cater to all of your needs. Whether you are young or old, here are some ways we can improve your smile’s appearance:

Dental Bonding

Do you have slight discolorations, chips and cracks that don’t require serious dental treatment but are enough to affect how you feel about your smile? If so, dental bonding could be the simple procedure you need to finally get the smile you want.

By covering these flaws with a special tooth-colored material our Lincoln dentist can easily mask these issues and improve the shape or color of one or more teeth. This procedure is one of the simplest and least expensive cosmetic treatments on the market and it’s completely non-invasive (this means no drilling, anesthesia, etc.).

Teeth Whitening

Do you suffer from dull or even yellow teeth? Have years of guzzling coffee or smoking cigarettes caused nasty stains and discolorations? We know that a lot of these stains won’t respond to at-home whitening remedies as effectively as you would like, which is why we are happy to offer a powerful in-office teeth whitening system.

This system tackles mild to more severe external stains caused by the foods and drinks we consume, smoking and even aging. In just one one-hour whitening session we could get your smile multiple shades whiter.


Do you love the idea of fixing crooked, gapping smiles but you’re just not sure that you are ready to wear metal braces all over your teeth in order to do it? We completely understand that for many teens and adults the idea of having to wear braces around friends and coworkers is enough to make anyone say “no”; however, now many people are choosing a nearly invisible approach to a straighter smile.

Invisalign uses clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. They look similar to whitening trays or mouthguards except that they actually apply enough pressure to move teeth into their predetermined position. In about one year, you could just end up getting the straighter results you want.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have aesthetic flaws like gaps between teeth, cracks and chips, severe discolorations that don’t respond to teeth whitening and other defects that bonding won’t be able to take on, the best option may be dental veneers. These tooth-colored shells are applied to the front of your teeth to improve the overall look, shape and color of your smile. Veneers can even improve the alignment of your teeth.

Caring Family Dentistry in Lincoln, NE, is dedicated to giving you the smile of your dreams. Schedule a consultation with us today to learn more about the options available to you.
