Processes that can be done to enhance the smile include whitening (also called "tooth bleaching"), shaping or smoothening out chips in the enamel, bonding to fill in gaps between teeth (which is sculpted into shape and then polished). Other techniques include applying veneers, which is porcelain laminates applied on the teeth, sculpting the gum line into a more pleasing appearance, and dental bridges (or "false teeth" as they are commonly known). Earlier, the fillings used for dentistry had gold and amalgam of metals, but now they're usually entirely made out of porcelain or other compostie materials. This helps in keeping the appearance of such fillings as similar to the natural teeth. They are also safer than amalgams, which have some amount of mercury. Cosmetic dentistry at Appleton is a rapidly evolving practice and is innovating quickly, leading to better and more lasting treatment.

The latter seeks to popularize innovative techniques and continue research in the field of cosmetic dentistry.
