Improve Your Smile's Appearance with Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry at our Canton, MI, practice can provide brighter and straighter teeth, which can make you feel more confident about your smile. Dr. Jeffrey Van Hook is highly trained in the science of cosmetic dentistry and understands how important it is to have a smile you enjoy sharing. At The Village Dentist, we are fully equipped to make your smile shine. We provide an array of treatments, including professional teeth whitening, gum contouring, porcelain veneers, and dental bonding. We can even combine multiple cosmetic treatments into one to two appointments for a complete smile makeover.
The Impact of Cosmetic Dentistry
A smile is one of the most memorable and noticeable traits that we observe in each other. Your smile can have a direct impact on your relationships, livelihood, and quality of life. Research has proven that when we smile, it releases endorphins that boost our mood, and can even positively affect our health.

If you are unhappy with your smile and avoid smiling and laughing during photos, parties, or when out with friends, Dr. Van Hook can help improve your smile through cosmetic dentistry treatments. Dr. Van Hook has been helping patients achieve healthy teeth and beautiful smiles with long-lasting results with cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures for almost 30 years.
Are You a Candidate?

- A "gummy" smile
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth

What to Expect During the Consultation
At The Village Dentist, you will always be treated like family and given ample time to ask your questions so you are at ease before we begin any treatment or procedures. Our team can also discuss financing your procedures with you at this time. If tooth decay or periodontal (gum) disease is detected, Dr. Van Hook will address the underlying health issues before proceeding with cosmetic enhancements. This allows us to create a healthy foundation and prevent further damage from occurring.
For teeth that require dental crowns or porcelain veneers, Dr. Van Hook can create a wax-up so you can see what your smile will look like after treatment. This mold will also be sent to a state-of the-art lab to design your customized veneers or crowns. We have been working with this local dental lab for almost 30 years to deliver attractive, natural-looking results for our patients. In most cases, they can have your veneers or crowns created in 7 to 10 days. At a follow-up appointment, Dr. Van Hook will ensure that they fit properly, then permanently affix them.
