Cosmetic Dentist Cornelius NC | Woman Smiling

At Cornelius Dentistry, we offer several great options when it comes to improving your smile. Our selection includes everything from braces to veneers.

Dental Implants!

Are you one of the millions of people who are missing one or more adult teeth? If you are, did you know that you can possibly replace your teeth with dental implants? When a tooth is removed, a lot of things can happen. The bone in that area shrinks over time.
