Transform Your Smile
No one should have to go through life feeling embarrassed to smile — but when you have cracked, stained, or discolored teeth, it can be hard to feel confident. That’s why Dr. Mischissin and our team offer cosmetic dental procedures to help you achieve a flawless smile.
Whether you need to fix cracks, remove stains, or fill a gap in your smile, we can provide the ideal solution for your needs. Explore our guide to learn more about our cosmetic treatment options.
In addition to not brushing and flossing enough, there are a variety of factors that can cause your teeth to appear stained or yellow. These include aging, genetics, certain medications, and the foods and beverages you choose to consume. If you want to brighten your smile, we offer professional teeth whitening at our office for your convenience.
Using a gel-activated hydrogen-peroxide solution, Dr. Mischissin can make your teeth several shades whiter in just one hour. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of a stunning smile from the moment your appointment is finished. If you’d prefer, we also offer take-home teeth whitening trays for your convenience.
Veneers are thin shells made of durable, tooth-colored porcelain to ensure a natural appearance and long-lasting results. They’re placed over the surface of your teeth to cover chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and other cosmetic flaws.
Getting veneers is a non-surgical procedure that can be completed in just two weeks, so you won’t have to wait long for your new smile. We’re also proud to offer Lumineers, an ultra-thin and translucent alternative to veneers that require less preparation of your teeth.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
If your tooth is severely damaged or decayed but doesn’t need to be removed entirely, a dental crown is typically the best option. These small caps are placed over the surface of damaged teeth to restore their strength and appearance. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials, but we recommend porcelain for a natural look and function.
Dr. Mischissin can customize and place your dental crown in two appointments over the course of a few weeks. You’ll be given a temporary restoration to protect your tooth while you wait for your permanent crown. Once the crown is bonded to your tooth, you’ll be ready to show off your new smile.
A dental bridge is designed to bridge the gap between one or more missing teeth. It consists of natural-looking prosthetics called pontics that are supported by your natural teeth on either side. These surrounding teeth will also be capped with dental crowns for additional strength and durability.
If you’re missing adjacent teeth, a dental bridge is often the most convenient and affordable option. However, if you’re only missing one tooth or if you have several missing teeth spaced throughout your smile, you may want to consider dental implants or dentures.
One of the fastest and most affordable dental treatments available, composite bonding can eliminate minor cosmetic flaws in your teeth to enhance your smile. The composite bonding material is highly versatile, allowing Dr. Mischissin to treat chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration.
The procedure is non-invasive and typically takes less than an hour. Bonding is also less expensive than similar treatments such as crowns and veneers, though it likely won’t last as long and the material may need to be replaced in 3 to 10 years.

Frequently Asked Questions
Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental procedure that improves the appearance of your teeth or gums. Cosmetic dental work focuses on aesthetics rather than functionality — in other words, most cosmetic procedures won’t actually improve your oral health, though some can. They’re also typically elective treatments that aren’t medically necessary.
Some common cosmetic dental procedures include:
- Teeth Whitening
- Porcelain Veneers
- Dental Crowns
- Composite Bonding
Since they’re not deemed medically necessary, most cosmetic procedures aren’t covered by dental insurance. However, you may be able to get a portion of your overall cost covered depending on the terms of your plan.
The amount of payment you’ll receive can vary based on your provider. If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to help you maximize your benefits.
Some patients wonder why they should bother with a cosmetic procedure if their health isn’t in danger. Chips, stains, and other minor flaws aren’t always indications of poor oral hygiene and often don’t pose any risk to your wellbeing.
Despite this, it’s essential to visit an experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Mischissin if you have any issues with your teeth. Whether you realize it or not, even minor flaws in your smile can impact the way people think of you and lead to negative first impressions. This will make it difficult to meet new friends and go on dates, hurting your social life and damaging your confidence over time.
After taking care of cosmetic issues at our practice, you’ll be able to smile with confidence for many years to come. Call our Cape May Court House practice at (609) 465-4411 to schedule your consultation today.
