Smile Design


Everyone has an imperfection that they’d like to be corrected or hidden from the world. When that imperfection happens to be your teeth, it can make everyday actions like smiling or laughing embarrassing. Wouldn’t you correct such a defect if you had the ability to do so? Thanks to Dr. Leatherwood and the rest of the cosmetic dentistry staff at Leatherwood Family and Cosmetic Dentistry we can provide you with a healthy beautiful smile with porcelain restorations in Denton.

Porcelain restorations (crowns and veneers) hide chips, permanent stains, and other cosmetic problems that can occur in otherwise healthy teeth. They’re basically like a cover up for your teeth, with the added guarantee that they won’t stain or darken over time.

Porcelain is more durable than the enamel that makes up your teeth. Porcelain restorations actually work to protect your existing teeth while still smoothing over the flaws in your smile. Porcelain veneers or crowns are a great way to boost your self-image, because the confidence your new aesthetic appearance will provide will be palpable with each flash of your pearly whites.


You’ll arrive at Leatherwood Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Denton, TX for your appointment with Dr. Leatherwood. She’ll examine your teeth and decide if porcelain restorations (crowns or veneers) are right for you. After you’ve been told that they are the answer you’ve been looking for, she will take notes on the size, shape, and coloring of your teeth.

You will be able to try-on your smile before we ever even numb the teeth, ensuring you are completely satisfied with the look before the procedure. Dr. Leatherwood wants you to be satisfied with this process almost more than you do. If later on you find that any adjustments to your prototypes are necessary, just return to Leatherwood Family and Cosmetic Dentistry and we’d be more than happy to make the alterations you want before the porcelain is finalized.

This way, the certified ceramist who creates your unique veneers will be able to customize the veneers to blend in with the rest of your teeth or achieve the full beautiful smile you deserve.

After our office received your one-of-a-kind porcelain veneers, we’ll call you in to affix them to your existing teeth. Once we’re finished bonding the shells to your tooth, or teeth, you won’t believe the visible change in your appearance!
