Dr. Steve Schwam is an experienced cosmetic dentist who offers various aesthetic therapies to dramatically improve smiles.

Dr. Schwam has advanced training in modern cosmetic dentistry, allowing us to deliver the premium services and outstanding care you deserve. Following a comprehensive consultation and exam, Dr. Schwam will personalize a treatment plan for you. We offer porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding to beautify teeth in the “smile zone” and teeth whitening to create sparkle and shine. Severely flawed smiles can be transformed with a complete smile makeover. Dr. Schwam will explain your options and let you assess the benefits of specific therapies before you begin treatment.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
If you’re looking for a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can conservatively correct your minor smile problems, you might want to think about cosmetic dental bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding uses tooth-colored resin to reshape teeth that have been marred by cracks, chips, or gaps. If you’re unsure about porcelain veneers and your cosmetic issues are minor, cosmetic dental bonding can be an attractive alternative.
Teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers and crowns, tooth-colored fillings…your smile might benefit from a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures. The comprehensive treatment plan that Dr. Schwam will develop for you is called a smile makeover. We can plan a complete smile makeover to suit your very specific needs and wants, bringing together all the best in aesthetic restorative and cosmetic dentistry to make the most of your smile. As an experienced cosmetic dentist with extensive training from the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, Dr. Schwam can make sure your smile truly stands out from the crowd. By the way, Dr. Schwam has his teeth restored this way from Bill Dickerson, owner of Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. He also has restored his wife Nancy’s smile.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations
Our patients deserve the best of both worlds when it comes to correcting damaged/decayed teeth, which is why Dr. Schwam primarily offers metal-free dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and other restorations that are durable and aesthetically natural-looking. The all-ceramic materials we use have the same translucent qualities as your original tooth enamel – they even reflect light in the same way, allowing them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. They’re also biocompatible, which makes them safe and comfortable for patients who’ve struggled with sensitivities/allergies to common dental metals in the past.
Gum Recontouring Laser
If your smile appears uneven or excessively short, your teeth may not be to blame – it could be an excess of gum tissue instead that’s causing the problem. With a gum recontouring procedure, Dr. Schwam can reshape your gumline and remove what’s unnecessary, revealing healthy tooth structure that was once hidden and creating a much more pleasing, symmetrical look overall that you can show off with pride.
Virtual Smile Design
Pursing the cosmetic smile transformation of your smile can feel like a dream – but you may have doubts as well. What if after all of this work, you’re not satisfied with the results? Here in Redmond, we can help by giving you a virtual preview of your completed improvements before any treatment has even begun. All Dr. Schwam needs is a current photograph of you; he will use virtual smile design technology to carefully alter your smile in this image, reflecting the changes that could occur after teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding, or other common services. By seeing into the future, patients can feel confident about their choices in the present!
If you’re looking for a quick, effective solution to conceal any number smile flaws like gaps, cracks, or stains, veneers are custom cosmetic dentistry solutions that fit over the fronts of teeth concealing any number of smile flaws instantly. The process is simple. We start by removing a small amount of surface enamel from teeth and capturing impressions for our dental lab. Before patients leave, we’ll place a temporary veneer to protect the prepared tooth. When we receive the custom veneer from our lab, patient return to our office so we can exchange the temporary for the final porcelain veneer.
A brighter smile is just one appointment away with professional teeth whitening solutions from Steve Schwam, DDS and his Redmond, OR team. Unlike store bought teeth whiteners, our professional products offer a customized whitening solution that brightens smiles up to ten shades. Whiteners you buy from the store offer a low-dose of whitening agent and ineffective application methods. Our professional whiteners are more effective because we’re able to use a higher dose of active whitening agent and more effective application that allows the whitener to remain active for longer.
