Do you have…

Stained or discolored teeth

The enamel that covers the teeth isn’t impervious to stains and the underlying tooth structure (the dentin) often yellows over time. As long as the teeth are healthy, it’s easy to eliminate stains by applying a bleaching agent.


Uneven teeth

Black Hills Area Dental can reshape the tooth so that it’s more aesthetically pleasing.


Broken or crooked teeth

If a tooth has been badly broken or is structurally weak, you may need a crown. Crowns used to be made of metal, but today they’re often made of tooth-colored porcelain materials.

Gaps between the teeth

Small gaps can be closed by applying composite material between the teeth. For large gaps or other imperfections on the surfaces of the teeth, Black Hills Area Dental may recommend veneers.


What to expect at your cosmetic dental consultation

During your cosmetic dental consultation, Dr. Samuelson will work closely with you to determine your specific needs and goals. Whether you’re interested in teeth whitening, bonding, enameloplasty, veneers, Botox, or a complete cosmetic makeover, we have the expertise and technology to deliver exceptional results.

What we offer

Teeth Whitening (Take Home And In Office)

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that can dramatically enhance the brightness of your smile. Our take-home and in-office whitening options are safe, effective, and convenient.



Bonding is a simple and cost-effective solution for repairing chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Using tooth-colored resin, Dr. Samuelson can reshape and restore your teeth, giving you a more uniform and attractive smile.

Dental Bonding


Enameloplasty, also known as tooth reshaping, involves removing small amounts of enamel to improve the appearance of misshapen or overlapping teeth. This quick and painless procedure can create a more harmonious and balanced smile.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They can transform the shape, color, and alignment of your teeth, giving you a flawless and natural-looking smile.



Botox is a cosmetic treatment that can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and lips. By combining Botox with our other cosmetic dental services, we can create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


Cosmetic Makeovers

If you’re looking for a complete smile transformation, our cosmetic makeovers are the perfect solution. Dr. Samuelson will develop a personalized treatment plan to address all of your aesthetic concerns, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.

Ask About Dental Veneers As A Solution

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are porcelain, and custom-made tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length and resulting in an improved appearance.

Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. Dr Samuelson will go over the best cosmetic options for you.
