When you feel satisfied with the appearance of your smile, you're naturally more willing to share it with the world, leading to increased confidence and a happier outlook on life. If you are unhappy with dental imperfections, cosmetic dentistry can address several types of concerns. Our highly trained dentist, Dr. Ron L. Shiver, has served Valdosta, GA, as a cosmetic dentist since 1980. He is an expert in many types of cosmetic dental care and takes great satisfaction in improving his patients' lives through cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry primarily addresses issues such as:
We offer many cosmetic treatments at our dental practice, including:
Our dentist offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. During in-office whitening, our dentist will use a professional-strength whitening gel to lighten your smile by several shades. For patients who wish to whiten at their own convenience, we can also provide a take-home kit with custom trays.
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable shells placed over the front surface of teeth to conceal chips, stains, and other imperfections. Your veneers will be custom-crafted from dental-grade porcelain and matched closely to the shade of your surrounding teeth to blend flawlessly with your smile.
Dental bonding is a more affordable and conservative alternative to veneers. During dental bonding, Dr. Shiver will apply a tooth-colored resin to the surfaces of your teeth, filling in chips and cracks and hiding blemishes. The dental resin is then shaped and polished to achieve a natural-looking appearance.
If an uneven gum line is detracting from the beauty of your teeth, we offer laser gum contouring as a minimally invasive and lasting solution. During this treatment, the dentist will use our state-of-the-art BIOLASE® laser to create a balanced frame for your smile by removing excess gum tissue.
For patients who require extensive cosmetic treatment, two or more options can be combined for a smile makeover. To plan your custom treatment, we will discuss your goals and budget. We will then stage or combine procedures to achieve the best results while minimizing appointments, recovery times, and costs.

Because cosmetic procedures are elective by nature, they are rarely covered by dental insurance. The costs vary from treatment to treatment and are determined by factors such as the number of teeth being treated, the technology being utilized, and the number of office visits required.
At the dental practice of Dr. Ron L. Shiver in Valdosta, GA, we work with patients to make dentistry as affordable as possible, and we offer financing through CareCredit®.
Perhaps your dental needs are more serious than surface-level cosmetic issues. Dr. Shiver also provides restorative dental care like dental implants, dental crowns, dental fillings, and even full mouth reconstructions. If you have missing teeth, a restorative treatment like dental implants is better suited to your needs and can provide the strong, healthy foundation that is necessary to ensure the success of any aesthetic enhancements.
