Your One-Stop Shop for Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Benefield offers cosmetic dentistry procedures in Grand Junction that improve your mouth’s appearance. A beautiful smile is the main goal, but procedures like Invisalign, veneers, and porcelain crowns also restore function. Invisalign clear aligners straighten crooked teeth, eliminate gaps and prevent bite problems from developing.
Veneers cover major flaws like chips, cracks and severe discoloration. They also lengthen short teeth and create a more uniform appearance. Porcelain crowns restore teeth that have lost most of their structure, as is the case after root canal therapy.
If you believe that you will benefit from cosmetic dentistry, please do not hesitate to visit Grand Dental, P.C. to see the services that can help you achieve the smile you want. Cosmetic dentistry procedures in Grand Junction can change your life by improving your appearance and your overall oral health.
Our Cosmetic Services
Dental implants combine an artificial titanium tooth root with a custom-crafted dental crown. Made to resemble your natural teeth, dental implants can only be identified by x-rays. The crown is designed to match the size, shape, color, as well as bite of your smile. Are you or someone you know missing one or more teeth? Missing teeth can cause problems with your confidence, appearance, eating, chewing, speaking, and overall health. Replace your missing teeth with dental implants.
Since dental implants are attached to your jaw bone, they restore the biting and chewing power of natural, healthy teeth. The materials of the dental implant work well with your body. They fuse to your jawbone creating a tremendously strong bond, which allows you to once again eat the foods you enjoy most.
Dental implants can improve your oral health, which contributes to your overall health. Dental implants promote and maintain bone growth in the affected areas of your mouth. If you leave a gap between teeth, the bone degenerates and leaves a depression in your gum line. Without any treatment, the surrounding teeth distort themselves to fill the empty space.
If you are looking to brighten your smile, Grand Dental offers several teeth whitening systems. Teeth can become discolored for various reasons including smoking, coffees or teas, some medications, poor oral hygiene, aging, as well as environment. Grand Junction dentist, Dr. Eric Benefield, can recommend the proper treatment for your individual circumstance.

Cosmetic bonding restores minor imperfections. With dental bonding, a tooth-colored composite material is used to repair teeth with decay, chips, cracks, discolorations, as well as gaps. Dental bonding is one of the easiest and most affordable methods for repairing teeth and making minor aesthetic changes to your smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made surfaces that cover the front of your teeth to repair and improve the appearance of your smile. These artificial surfaces are bonded to your teeth to change their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers are made of porcelain or resin composite material.
They can be used to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Your cosmetic dentist will remove a small amount of enamel. The veneers will be fitted and slightly adjusted for an optimal appearance. Once the ideal placement is determined, they are bonded in place and you will be flashing a brand new smile.
Invisalign is the new way to correct misaligned, gapped, and crooked teeth. Instead of uncomfortable wires and brackets, plastic aligners guide your teeth slowly to the desired position. The aligners are clear and removable, so you can smile with confidence and eat whatever you want. They also make it easier to clean your teeth! Most patients who qualify for braces also qualify for Invisalign. Treatment time varies, but the average is about one to two years.
Invisalign® will comfortably straighten your teeth so you can smile with confidence. Invisalign® uses virtually invisible aligners. The smooth plastic material will not poke or irritate your mouth. Invisalign® aligners are removable, which allows you to eat the foods you enjoy and easily clean your teeth and mouth properly without a huge time commitment. Straight teeth contribute tremendously to your overall health. Crooked and crowded teeth make effective brushing and cleaning difficult. The American Dental Association has linked tooth decay and gum disease caused by bacteria to serious health conditions. By straightening your teeth with Invisalign®, you reduce your risks and improve your health.
Need a smile makeover? Your Grand Junction, CO dentist offers cosmetic dentistry procedures that create dramatic results. Professional teeth whitening is often more effective than over-the-counter bleaching products. It is also safer because Dr. Benefield monitors your progress from beginning to end. The procedure is quick—the dentist covers your gums and cheeks with a dam or protective gel and then applies the peroxide to your teeth. Sometimes, a laser is also used to boost the whitening process.
Long Lasting Solutions
If you want a longer-lasting solution to flaws and discoloration, veneers may be right for you. Veneers are thin porcelain laminates that are cemented to the front of the tooth. To make room for the veneer, the dentist removes a portion of the enamel before attaching the porcelain facing. Dental bonding is similar to veneer application, but the material is less durable. Bonding is great for hiding minor imperfections.
