What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of your smile. While a healthy mouth is very important, our team at our Merritt Island dental practice understands the importance of feeling confident with your smile. We are here to provide a variety of cosmetic dentistry options to treat a variety of imperfections to give you the dazzling smile you have always dreamed of.
Cosmetic Dentistry Candidates
In Good Oral Health
Patients must be in good oral health before they undergo any cosmetic dentistry procedures. Good oral health ensures a healthy foundation for your beautiful smile. If you suffer from issues such as tooth decay or gum disease, these problems must be addressed before cosmetic treatments can proceed.
Committed to Change
Patients undergoing cosmetic treatment should be committed to making changes to protect their new smile. This may include changes such as stopping using tobacco products. Cosmetic treatments are an investment, and protecting your smile can ensure maximum benefits for years to come.
For those with pre-existing oral health issues, we offer a range of treatments to help you reach optimal oral health and qualify for cosmetic treatments. Explore the other procedures we perform to help the patients of Merritt Island keep their smiles gorgeous and healthy.
Dental Care Technology for Patient Comfort and Safety
Advanced Imaging Systems
Our dentists use safe digital x-rays to minimize radiation exposure and generate fast, high-resolution images of the structures of the mouth. We also use dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) for 3-D scans of the teeth, jawbone, soft tissues, and nerves.
The Latest Dental Care Tools
Thanks to intraoral cameras, we can see hard-to-reach parts of the mouth clearly during exams in real time. Waterlase iPlus allows us to perform safe, sanitary drill-free dentistry. The CEREC system allows us to make custom tooth-colored crowns in just a single appointment.
Smart Patient Amenities
We never want you to worry while you're here. That's why we offer nitrous oxide so you can achieve a relaxed state. We also have Netflix and headphones in every treatment room to block out the sounds of dental care. This is a calmer kind of dentistry that puts you first.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Treatments for Your Smile
Dental bonding involves a tooth-colored resin painted directly onto the surface of a tooth. This durable bonding material conceals minor chips, cracks, stains, and gaps that can ruin a smile's overall appearance. When polished and blended, dental bonding is difficult to notice.
Professional in-office whitening is far more effective than the over-the-counter whitening kits available at the store. In just one dental bleaching session, your smile can be brightened by several entire shades. Teeth whitening is perfect for extrinsic dental stains.
Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments available, used to conceal chips, cracks, gaps, stains, and misalignment. These thin shells of dental porcelain are adhered to the fronts of flawed teeth. Veneers blend in seamlessly, making your smile appear absolutely flawless.
Your gumline has a major impact on your smile. Prominent gums and recession can both throw off the appearance of your teeth. Thanks to modern contouring techniques, our dentists can reshape and restore the gumline, enhancing periodontal health and appearance.
SureSmile is an advanced alternative to braces and traditional orthodontics. Rather than brackets and wires, SureSmile uses clear plastic aligner trays to shift your teeth into a healthier and more attractive position. The final results of SureSmile are stunning.
When fillings, inlays, and onlays cannot repair a damaged tooth, the ideal solution is to strengthen it with a crown. These restorations will cap a tooth, protecting it from further harm. Thanks to CEREC technology, a custom tooth-colored porcelain crown can be made in a single visit.
Dental implants are an excellent option for missing teeth. These artificial roots are surgically anchored into the jawbone, fusing with the living tissue. After healing, dental implants can stabilize a crown, bridge, or denture, restoring appearance and dental health.
A smile makeover combines multiple cosmetic dentistry options. This treatment is reserved for complicated cosmetic problems that cannot be treated with just a single procedure. Our dentists have performed complete dental makeovers that have vastly enriched their patients' lives.

Maintaining Your Beautiful Smile After Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment
Good Oral HygieneMaintaining your oral health is the first step to keeping your smile beautiful. Brush with a soft-bristle brush twice a day for two minutes to help prevent cavities and gum disease. Floss at least once a day.
Avoid Foods That StainTo keep your smile brilliantly white, avoid or minimize foods and drinks that stain, such as coffee and red wine. When you do indulge, be sure to brush after to minimize staining.
Protect Your Teeth From DamageBiting your nails, using your teeth to open packages, or chewing on ice can damage your teeth. Avoid these activities to prevent cracking, chipping, or breaking your teeth and restorations. If you play sports or grind your teeth, your dentist may suggest a mouth guard.
Trusted Cosmetic Dentists Helping Merritt Island Smile with Confidence
I have been to Dr. Wilkhu for a few years. I felt so comfortable walked in to his practice office and warm welcome greeting by Brandy. He is easy to talked to and understand what I need. His office is very clean and easy to get in and out so if anyone looking for a new dentist. He will be a perfect one.View On Google
Dr. Wilkhu is the best dentist I have ever been to. From the office staff to the hygienists to the dentist and his assistants, they are all top notch. I went to Dr. Wilkhu after having a bad experience with another dentist. Dr. Wilkhu had done a great job for my mother and his reviews were great so I thought I would give him a try. I have been going to him for about three years now and even if I move out of state I will come back to see Dr. Wilkhu. Not only is he a great dentist, but he is as close to painless as you can get.View On Google
