How can cosmetic dentistry improve the appearance of your smile and enhance the health of your teeth and gums? Cosmetic dentistry combines artistic restoration techniques with advanced dental health strategies to establish and maintain your most natural, beautiful smile.

How can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve Your Smile?

Dental issues resolved with cosmetic dentistry include:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Cracks and chips
  • Receding gums
  • Staining and discoloration
  • Decay or dental injuries
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded or misaligned teeth

If you have ever dreamed of showing off a healthier, more attractive smile, AACD-accredited, LVI-trained cosmetic dentist Dr. Ted Murray can turn those dreams into reality using the most current cosmetic dentistry techniques and technology available today. He works as a team with his daughter, Dr. Berning, who is also receiving LVI training.

Cosmetic Treatments Available

For a discussion of your treatment options and an evaluation of your smile, please call Exceptional Dentistry at 563-556-2711 today. Dr. Murray, Dr. Berning, and Dr. Oetken serve patients in and around Davenport, Cedar Rapids and other nearby communities from our office in Dubuque, Iowa.

Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening can take years off your appearance. At Exceptional Dentistry, the safe and effective ZOOM! In-Office Whitening System can dramatically brighten your smile in under one hour. ZOOM! Whitening is the perfect choice for busy individuals who want to enjoy a more youthful appearance without spending hours in the dentist’s chair.


Invisalign® straightens teeth invisibly, without the discomfort or awkward appearance of conventional metal braces. We use advanced 3D computer imaging to create your treatment plan. A series of clear, custom-made, comfortable aligners can gently realign your teeth over time for a straight, stunning smile.

Porcelain Veneers

In two short, pain-free visits, Dr. Ted Murray, Dr. Kristen Berning, and Dr. Alexia Oetken can restore the appearance of your smile with porcelain veneers. They are thin shells of fired porcelain that fit perfectly over your teeth, effectively correcting almost any smile imperfection. Porcelain veneers remain strong, attractive and durable for years.

Laser Gum Recontouring

If your smile reveals excessive gum tissue, making your teeth appear short and unattractive, you may be a candidate for laser gum recontouring. This is a safe, comfortable procedure that gently reshapes and sculpts the gum line for a more natural and beautiful smile.

Metal-Free Restorations

Exceptional Dentistry offers metal-free restorations. Silver mercury fillings and amalgams can eventually weaken and break teeth, causing further decay. Metal-free fillings are safer and stronger and look so similar to your tooth enamel that they are undetectable as fillings.
