Like many dentists, Gastonia NC dentist Dr. Miller offers cosmetic dentistry services, including porcelain crowns, teeth whitening, veneers, closing spaces between teeth, and fixing chipped or broken teeth. What separates him from many other professionals, however, is the extensive training he has undergone in the cosmetic dentistry field. Dr. Miller recommends that his patients come in for an extensive consultation appointment. After gathering the important data, he will then customize an individual treatment plan and meet with the patient to discuss options to create   healthy teeth and gums and a great-looking smile.

Porcelain Crowns

Because porcelain crowns provide the best color match to natural teeth, patients often choose all porcelain crowns when searching for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Miller uses his expertise and training to match the exact translucency and color of the patient’s natural teeth, so the crown blends in with the surrounding teeth. Porcelain crowns are often used for teeth in the “smile zone,” the teeth that show when you smile. They are a type of ceramic crown very resistant to abrasion and staining.


Some of our patients only want whitened teeth to add that extra boost to their smile and confidence. In-office or at-home tooth bleaching safely lightens the color of teeth, and removes stains from coffee, tea, wine, food coloring or darkened sodas.


Veneers create a vivid, natural smile with aligned, shapely teeth. They are custom-designed shells of tooth-like ceramic material applied over the surface of a tooth, covering worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, and chips or cracks. Dr. Miller uses the translucent ceramic quality to provide a natural look that matches surrounding natural teeth. Because some veneers do not require tooth preparation, they are a good option for clients who want a reversible procedure or have anxiety about being at the dentist. Dr. Miller also offers other types of veneers that require tooth preparation before application.

Aesthetic Fillings

Restorations can be made of tooth-colored materials that enable us to repair decayed or damaged teeth in a manner that blends in with your other teeth for a more natural look. Tooth-colored fillings are often one component of a smile makeover, used to replace a patient’s metal fillings.
