Dr. Foust relies on years of rigorous training, experience, and state of the art technology to provide top-notch contemporary cosmetic dentistry. Read on to learn more about the cosmetic dentistry services she offers right here in Ankeny.

  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth-whitening eliminates stains from the tooth enamel. Dr. Foust provides both in-office and take home teeth whitening options. In the office, she will shine a curing light on your teeth after applying a special bleaching gel to them. The treatment should take just an hour and brightens your teeth several shades. If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, she will provide you with custom-fitted trays and bleaching gel. Simply fill the trays with the gel, wear for a specified amount of time each day, and enjoy full results within 10-14 days.
  • Cosmetic Bonding: Dr. Foust can correct chipped teeth, cracked teeth, short teeth, stains, and space between teeth with cosmetic bonding. She will apply composite resin material, the same white material she uses to fill cavities. Then she will mold the composite resin to the desired shape to correct the problem issue. The material bonds to the tooth quite well, and this treatment typically takes place in just one appointment.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers, like bonding, can mask stains, chipped teeth, misshapen teeth, and gaps between teeth. They can also give crooked teeth the appearance of being straight. Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that adhere to the front surface of the tooth. They can be placed over two appointments with Dr. Foust.
