Get Your Confidence Back!

Cosmetic Dentistry

Fine Smiles have become the signature mark of both the fashion conscious and the confident healthy mindset. Clothing styles come and go, but your smile is one accessory you will never take off. In fact, your smile is your most important feature and leaves a lasting impression for good or bad – and, it’s never forgotten!

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Tri-Cities cosmetic dentist Dr. Lee Ostler combines artistic expertise along with the latest advances in cosmetic dental materials and techniques to create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Being a cosmetic dentist is more than doing teeth whitening, “bonding”, or using tooth-colored filling materials. The yellow pages and internet are filled with so-called “cosmetic dentists” who meet that minimum requirement – so much so that anymore, being a “cosmetic dentist” is cliché, even (yawn) passé!

Teeth Whitening

Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry choice. While over-the-counter solutions are widely advertised their effect is limited due to lower strength concentrations of whitening gels, and their very difficult placement and application. Custom take-home trays and bleaching gels professionally supervised by your dental team provides more satisfying and durable results. Come in for a consultation to determine the best method and product choice for your situation.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain VeneersPorcelain veneers and crowns are a durable cosmetic dental fix for chipped, stained or misaligned teeth. A dental veneer is made of strong ceramic porcelain that is bonded to the front of the tooth. They correct the size, length, shape, contour and spacing, as well as the color of your natural teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental ImplantsDental implants are used today to replace one or more missing teeth or to secure bridges or dentures with the similar strength of a natural tooth. As such, they combine both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Dental implants function just like a natural healthy tooth. They also help preserve the jaw bone and prevent collapse of the smile and face due to missing teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth Colored FillingsReplace old silver amalgam fillings (which expand, crack and crack teeth) with tooth-colored composite resin filling material. These new composite fillings restores natural color and appearance of your teeth while helping to protect them from further cracking and breakdown.

Dental Crowns

Dental CrownsDental crowns (also known as “caps”) are used to cover and restore a tooth that is decayed or damaged. There is a variety of types of crowns, the most popular today being porcelain crowns which restore form, function and natural appearance. When a porcelain crown is adhesively bonded to a tooth it provides a durable, comfortable and confident solution.

Smile Makeover

Smile MakeoversA “smile makeover” is when several teeth in the “smile zone” are restored and treated with bonded porcelain restorations. Strong modern opalescence porcelains which mimic the natural vitality of teeth can fix crooked teeth, and worn down and aged and unsightly smiles in as little as two dental visits.

Sedation Dentisty

Sedation DentistryIf fear has kept you from coming to the dentist, it’s time to come back. Your teeth and smile is restored while you deeply relax or even fall asleep. Safe dental sedation allows multiple procedures fixing years of neglect to be completed during a single visit.

21 Principles of Smile Design

The 21 Principles of Smile Design

As a former clinical instructor in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Ostler has trained with and taught some of the most experienced cosmetic dentists in the world. He is also author of the acclaimed book “21 Principles of Smile Design” used by dentists throughout the United States to help their patients understand the factors that make up a great smile – either in nature or at the hands of a truly experienced cosmetic dentist.

Cosmetic dentistry properly performed combines various techniques and treatments along with exquisite laboratory support, to create a spectacular, radiant and natural-looking smile. With a more youthful smile you can create and restore a positive self-confidence that is hard to ignore. And you will be impressing the important people in your life at home, work, and out and about.

The “Hollywood Dentistry” of the past has now merged with strong space-age materials and modern techniques to restore dingy, aging worn-down smiles, to their youthful strength and glory. Durable comfortable bites and bright smiles are now the custom of our day. And they are what career enhancement and social confidence are all about!

Cosmetic dentistry is more than taking years off your face, or having a brighter sexier smile, or having healthy kissable breath. It’s a durable smile that screams confidence with a youthful exuberance that knocks their socks off!

That’s cosmetic dentistry!

A Note Straight From the Patient Seat...

Dr. Ostler has a deserved reputation as being one of the very best of what he does. He is by far the best, most professional and talented dentist I have worked with. My experience with everyone in Dr. Ostler’s office has been fantastic in every way. All have been very professional, great to work with and very nice.


I feel that right now my dental health is as good as it has been, which includes braces, bite adjustment, and cosmetic veneers that have made my mouth look and feel the best they have ever been. I didn’t realize how I subconsciously hid my teeth before having veneers. I just feel better overall with a better smile. It is often said the first thing many say they notice about you is your smile. So if you can afford it and it helps you look and feel better, I say “go for it!”


My wife and I are all about quality and customer service and we are more than willing to pay a little more for the best. That is what Dr. Ostler and his practice are about. Dr. Ostler is talented, thorough, professional, meticulous, caring and a good man. I would highly recommend him for your dental health and smile.
