If you want to enjoy a brighter and more attractive smile, then you may want to talk to your Newhall, CA, dentist about cosmetic dentistry. With cosmetic dentistry, we offer an array of treatments designed to improve specific areas of your smile, from removing teeth stains to repairing damage. Let’s look at the different esthetic treatments we offer our patients.
As the name implies, cosmetic dentistry is designed to improve the esthetics of your smile. Our treatments target issues with the color, shape, and alignment of your smile and offer solutions. Often, correcting esthetic issues also helps boost your smile’s oral health. For example, correcting misalignment has been known to reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ disorder, and bruxism, in addition to improving smile beauty.
With professional teeth whitening, we remove stains from the teeth and help people enjoy brighter smiles. We have two different options available. Zoom! In-office whitening removes stains in about one to two hours helping you leave with a significantly brighter smile. Treatment employs a special light and a powerful bleaching gel to break up discoloration. For more serious cases, we also have an at-home option. We send our patients home with a set of trays and a bleaching gel. Each day, they add the gels to the trays and wear them for about half an hour. The trays evenly spread the gel across the teeth and over the course of a week to ten days, teeth can be brightened by several shades.
Bonding and Contouring
Bonding repairs minor damage and masks teeth stains with the same composite resin material we use in our tooth-colored fillings. Placement only takes one visit, and addresses a myriad of esthetic issues. Contouring involves buffing away a small amount of outer structure to improve the shape and appearance of the smile. Again, the procedure only takes one visit to complete.
A thin shell of porcelain, veneers completely transform the smile in just two visits. They cover the front and sides of the teeth, bonding with the smile while correcting minor damage and the appearance of misalignment. We also close gaps between teeth and mask permanent teeth stains.
If you have an uneven smile, then we may prescribe Invisalign®, a series of clear aligners that offer a visually pleasing alternative to traditional metal braces, providing a straighter smile in as little as one year! You can also remove the aligners before meals or a special occasion.
