Cosmetic Dentistry Questions Answered [FAQ]

FAQ #1: Cosmetic dentistry procedures are all very long complicated, right?

Not at all! At Bright Star Dental in Las Cruces, NM, we house the latest in advanced dental technology, which allows us to offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures. Many of them are probably much easier and faster than you might think.

Professional teeth whitening treatments, for instance, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in only one visit using a special dental laser and Zoom whitening gel. You can also take advantage of our whitening for life program. Here, you pay a one time registration fee, and then take custom-made trays and gel that you can use in the comfort of your own home. Whenever you come in for another dental checkup, you can pick up more gel as needed.

Another way to dramatically whiten your teeth is through veneers in our Las Cruces dental office. A leader in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Gilbert is well-known around the community for veneers. Patients from all around have trusted his expertise for their Hollywood worthy smile and radiant veneers.

We also offer tooth bonding and gum reshaping, both of which are easy and effective ways to improve the appearance of your smile.

FAQ #2: Are adults with crooked teeth out of luck when it comes to orthodontics?

At Bright Star Dental, adults who desperately want straighter teeth can have them without the unsightly, and often painful, traditional metal braces that teens wear. We have an in-house laboratory and a talented team of specialists that allow us to offer Six Month Smiles.

The great thing about Six Month Smiles is that it’s a shorter treatment for straightening teeth. Metal brackets and wires take two years or more. Six Month Smiles, however, takes much less time by focusing on the front teeth that show when you smile. By using clear braces and tooth-colored wire, you can have a more attractive smile in less than half the time of traditional braces. Oftentimes, people won’t even notice you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you point it out to them.

FAQ #3: Do veneers look fake?

Not in our office! When you have your dental veneers done at Bright Star Dental, you know you’re in the hands of an expert. That’s because Dr. Gilbert is the only AACD Accredited dentist in the area. He can give you veneers that can transform the appearance of your smile while looking completely natural at the same time.

We’re able to offer a variety of dental veneers such as:

-DURAthin no-prep veneers

-emax veneers

-Empress veneers

-Authentic veneers


Veneers are a great solution for chipped, gapped, or cracked teeth. They also correct stained teeth and teeth that are misshapen. Dr. Gilbert can create your custom veneers according to your particular dental needs. It varies for everyone, but most of the time, it’s a relatively quick treatment in our Las Cruces office.

We hope this has cleared up any preconceived notions you may have had about your options in cosmetic dentistry. If there is anything that you don’t like about your smile, our highly trained team of professionals at Bright Star Dental is ready to help bring it to life!
