Cosmetic dentistry has been called an art form, a precision science, and a cornerstone of modern dental care. It is all of those things and more. Every general dentist is taught the basics of tooth repair, which is largely engineering-based. A good dentist can create durable, functional, comfortable restorations, but an artistic eye is needed to turn a person’s smile into a masterpiece. Similarly, an artist may be able to paint or sculpt a smile, but advanced dental skills are needed to turn a design into quality restorations.
Dr. Michaela McKenzie possesses the unique blend of natural talent, extensive schooling, experience, and commitment to excellence that separates good cosmetic dentistry from great cosmetic dentistry. The daughter of world-renowned engraver, Lynton McKenzie, she grew up with an appreciation for beauty, and an understanding of the importance of fine detail. She joined the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry while still in Dental school, and has been enhancing her education and skills ever since.

Cosmetic dentistry is very personal, and must be individualized for each patient. Dr. McKenzie understands that the appearance of your smile can have a dramatic impact on your confidence, image, overall appearance, relationships, and human interactions. When you look in the mirror, you want to love what you see, and when you flash your most charming smile, you want to feel confident that others will love what they see. Our goal is to make that happen.
Dr. McKenzie begins with a full aesthetic evaluation, because the appearance of your smile is affected by your teeth, gums, lips, facial features, skin tone, hair color, face shape, and more. The initial visit also includes an in-depth discussion, during which the doctor will learn about your goals, preferences, style, and expectations. She will explain what can realistically be accomplished, and she will help you choose the best solutions for your individual needs.
