Change Your Smile, Change Your Life

Your smile can say a lot about you, without you having to say a word. Is your smile sending the message you want it to? The good news is if you are embarrassed by the appearance of your smile – maybe your teeth have become dull and stained over the years, or they’re not as straight as they once were – we have a solution for you with our many cosmetic services. We use years of experience and artistry, combined with the most advanced technology to transform your smile from the one you’ve been hiding into one you’ll love showing off.


Invisalign® is a modern orthodontic alternative to straightening your teeth and giving you the smile you deserve. When you utilize this series of custom-made clear aligners molded specifically to your bite, your teeth will gradually move into their correct positions according to a plan laid out by Dr. Shanks. Avoid the hassle of metal brackets and wires and correct your smile in a subtle, concealed way with Invisalign®.


Porcelain veneers are often the perfect option for patients with chipped, gapped, or otherwise malformed teeth. Veneers are custom-crafted porcelain shells that bond directly to the front of your teeth, correcting a number of cosmetic and functional issues. In addition to being safe and effective, they are nearly identical to natural teeth.

What are the benefits of veneers?

There are many benefits in deciding to correct your smile with veneers, including:

  • Teeth are whiter
  • Teeth are straighter
  • Teeth are more perfectly shaped and sized
  • Cover up cracks, chips, and imperfections
  • More stain resistant than natural teeth
  • Improved physical appearance
  • Increased confidence
  • Strong, durable and long-lasting

Teeth Whitening

With the thousands of teeth whitening products – toothpaste, gels, rinses, strips, the list goes on – that you can pick up at the store along with your groceries (how convenient), it’s no wonder our patients often ask us about professional teeth whitening treatments. Why would you pay to have it done professionally when you can do it yourself?

The truth is, while some of these products may be effective at removing some surface stains, a professional whitening treatment is really the only way to remove those pesky, deep intrinsic stains that give teeth their color. So, you could spend a bunch of money trying to whiten your teeth yourself, only to not get the results you were hoping for, or you could get the best return on your investment with a professional whitening treatment at Northside Family Dentistry.

Remove years of stains in just one visit to the office, or pick up a take-home kit and whiten on your own time from the comfort of home – with professional results.

Smile Makeovers

When it comes to your smile, cosmetic issues usually don’t all happen at once. Instead, they gradually build up over the years, leaving you with a lack of confidence in your smile from yellowed teeth, damage, decay, or more. We offer extensive smile makeovers because no one should be ashamed to show off their smile.

We’ll start you off with a thorough examination to determine how we can best benefit your oral health and achieve your cosmetic goals. From there, we’ll draw up a blueprint for your new smile and we can take the first step together. Throughout the whole process your comfort is our number one goal, so we’ll make your smile makeover a truly amazing journey to a new smile.

Every smile is as unique as the person who wears it, so your Smile Makeover treatment plan will be custom-made just for you, and may include any of the following cosmetic treatments:

  • Restorations (inlays/onlays, crowns, bridges, dentures)
  • Orthodontics
  • Veneers
  • Teeth Whitening
