Take A Closer Look At Our Cosmetic Dentistry

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are a popular choice among our Portage patients, providing a beautiful long-lasting solution to a variety of dental imperfections. Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain ceramic shells that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth to mask chips, gaps, discoloration, and minor misalignment. In some cases, we can also provide prepress veneers, which do not require any permanent changes to your tooth structure.

Teeth Whitening

Our Kalamazoo, MI, practice offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems allowing you to choose a treatment that works best for your needs. The major advantage of in-office teeth whitening is speed. Just sit back and relax in one of our cozy chairs while our dentists remove years of built-up stains in under an hour.

If you prefer to handle your whitening in the comfort of your own home, try our convenient take-home kits. We use the Discus Dental tooth whitening system that includes customized trays and professional-strength peroxide gel. With consistent use, you can expect your teeth to be five to ten shades whiter in just a couple of weeks.

Fast, Easy, Effective Bright smiles for all those special moments...

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an affordable and conservative form of cosmetic dentistry, designed to treat minor flaws such as cracks, chips, and intrinsic stains. Our dentists will apply the tooth-colored composite resin to the surface of your enamel and artfully sculpt the material to match the shape of your natural tooth. Bonding is the perfect way to ease into cosmetic enhancements, especially if you are unsure about the price or upkeep of porcelain veneers.

Gum Contouring

If your gum line is uneven or extends too far down the length of your teeth, your smile can appear out of balance and even unhealthy. Gum contouring is an effective treatment for a "gummy smile," reshaping the tissues so they delicately frame your teeth. This procedure is the secret weapon of many cosmetic dentists, enhancing the proportions and symmetry of your smile.

Does It Hurt?

There is no need to be nervous about the procedure. Our dentists ensure your comfort by first administering a local anesthetic before starting your treatment. If you suffer from anxiety or severe sensitivity, we can also provide sedation dentistry to induce a state of deeper relaxation.

"In my opinion, the best dental practice in Kalamazoo. I suffer from extreme anxiety and Denise made me completely at ease... They are very compassionate, gentle, and understanding." Richard Stewart


SureSmile aligners are a discreet alternative to traditional braces (like Invisalign) for patients looking for straighter teeth. SureSmile uses a series of custom-fitting aligner trays to gently move teeth into the correct position. In addition to being virtually invisible, the aligners are also removable — you can continue to brush, floss, eat, like normal, without making any major changes to your lifestyle. Dr. Coulibaly proudly maintains a close relationship with some of the best lab techs at SureSmile, you can trust you’ll receive the very best  treatment possible. 

Smile Makeovers

Our Kalamazoo practice simplifies comprehensive cosmetic dental care with our streamlined smile makeovers. Smile makeovers combine multiple cosmetic dentistry techniques to enhance all the areas of your smile that cannot be addressed in just one procedure.


Top 3 Advantages Of Choosing a Smile Makeover

Custom Treatment

Our dentists will take into account your aesthetic preferences, long-term goals, and budget and design a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.  

Great Value

Combining procedures reduces the costs associated with treatment, savings which we, in turn, pass on to you.

Quick Results

Patients will require fewer trips to the dentist's office and see their results much faster.

Is Dental Anxiety Keeping You From Your Dream Smile?

We understand that dental anxiety and phobia prevent some patients from getting even the most basic dental care. Our dentistry practice offers sedation options to help the patients of Portage and Kalamazoo, MI, get the care they need for their oral health and the beauty of their smiles. Our sedation options include:

Oral Conscious Sedation

Your dentist will prescribe an anxiety medication for you to take before your appointment. This helps patients remain relaxed and comfortable in a state of twilight sleep while they undergo treatment. You will need a friend or family member to take you to and from your appointment. 

Nitrous Oxide

This form of sedation is inhaled to induce relaxation. Like oral conscious sedation, you will remain awake but comfortable. However, this method of sedation is fast-acting and wears off quickly once it is stopped, so patients can drive themselves to and from the appointment.

Cosmetic Dentistry Costs

We understand that costs are a major factor for patients considering dental treatments. Because this form of dentistry is considered cosmetic, dental insurance does not cover treatment. We accept financing options such as CareCredit® and LendingClub® to make these treatments affordable on virtually any budget. We are happy to discuss your options during your consultation before your treatment begins. 

Have Issues That Impact  Your Oral Health and Function?


If you have cosmetic goals in addition to oral health needs, we are equipped to help. Our dentists offer treatment options such as traditional dental implants, root canals, custom dentures and bridges, and more to help the patients of Portage achieve healthy and functional smiles. 

"Dr Sharp has always been at the cutting edge of new practices and procedures, (they started wearing masks and gloves 25 years ago). All his staff and dentists are top notch, selected and trained by Dr. Sharp himself. They are all the most gentle with their hands and tools as I have had in my life. Highly recommended!"
