Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that are designed to address the beauty of your smile, masking stains and even correcting misshapen teeth too. Our team provides a comprehensive array of cosmetic treatments to improve the beauty of your smile, often in one visit. In today’s blog, your Newport Beach, CA, dentist’s office talks about cosmetic dentistry. With these treatment options, we can help you obtain a smile that looks great, and in the process, improve your oral health and bite function too!
Starting with a Cosmetic Consultation
To begin, we want to talk to you about your concerns with your smile and to examine your smile to assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic imperfections. With this information, our team can then create a detailed treatment plan to offer relief and improve your smile’s health, appearance, and function. Every smile is unique, which is why our team provides a customized solution to common esthetic complaints, helping people smile with confidence once again.
Creating Ceramic Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a full restoration that covers a tooth and addresses an array of concerns. For example, we’ve used them to treat advanced decay or infection. For esthetics, we can use them to reshape malformed teeth, repair damage that could threaten smile stability, and even improve overall bite balance and chewing function. Ceramic can handle the daily bite forces and pressures expected of a tooth, but can also be color matched to blend with the smile seamlessly. They’re very strong and cost effective, and can leave you with results that match your smile!
Professional Teeth Whitening
If you have minor or even severe teeth stains, we can help brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening. Unlike store bought options, these provide results that are dramatic and longer-lasting. Our team will apply a very strong bleaching gel to your teeth. The gel then begins to break up and remove teeth stains, so you obtain a much brighter smile in only one visit. We can then discuss changes to your daily routine and oral hygiene habits to help these results last for months to come, keeping your smile brighter and beautiful.
Placing Porcelain Veneers
Did you know we have a cosmetic treatment that can offer a smile makeover in only two visits? Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made for your smile. Porcelain can withstand daily bite forces and is also translucent like tooth enamel. The material can be shaded to blend with the rest of your smile, so the results look lifelike. Our team will remove structure from the teeth and create the veneers based on detailed digital images of the prepared teeth. We then attach the completed veneers to the teeth, instantly reshaping them. Porcelain veneers can mask teeth stains, fill gaps between teeth, correct dental damage, address misshapen teeth, and even straighten the appearance of minor misalignment. Placement only takes two visits, and you can enjoy a completely transformed smile!
Creating Lifelike Dental Bridges
When you suffer from tooth loss, this not only impacts the beauty of your smile but your overall oral health too. Missing teeth are linked to issues eating and speaking clearly, and could lead to discomfort and a greater risk of complications like TMJ disorder, bruxism (teeth grinding), cavities, and gum disease. But we can help with our lifelike dental bridges! Each one is custom-made for your smile, and can address between one and three missing teeth in a row. The prosthetic contains new teeth with crowns on one or both ends, and are made from a ceramic material that can be color-matched to blend with your smile, but also handles the daily bite forces and pressures that natural teeth do. We attach the crown portions to the abutment teeth, the ones on each side of the gap in your smile, so you can enjoy a full and beautiful smile.
