Do you wish you could undergo care to improve the overall beauty of your smile? We understand, and want to offer optimal results for your smile! In today’s blog, your Newport Beach, CA, dentist can provide cosmetic dentistry, including care to brighten teeth and even replace missing ones too!
The Cosmetic Consultation
To begin, we need to take a close look at your smile. To do so, our team will carefully examine your teeth and gums with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, which use a fraction of the radiation and provide detailed images instantly chairside. We will also talk to you about your hops for your new smile. Armed with this information, our team will be able to create a personalized treatment plan to correct your cosmetic imperfections, so you can obtain results that make you feel confident. In the process, this could also help improve bite function and overall oral health too.
Custom Ceramic Crowns
A dental crown will cover the visible portion of a tooth so we can address cosmetic issues like misshapen, damaged, or dation teeth, and address advanced decay, poor bite balance, and issues with chewing function. In fact, these can even aid in tooth replacement as we will discuss further on. We craft our crowns from ceramic, a strong material that can resist daily bite forces and pressures, and also last for years to come. The material is translucent like tooth enamel, and we will color match it to blend with your tooth. Each one is custom-made for your smile, so they fit comfortably and match the rest of your smile. A cosmetic approach to dental restoration.
Teeth Whitening Treatments
Teeth whitening can remove stains and offer brighter smiles. With our professional treatments, we can provide longer-lasting and more dramatic results than store bought options will, so they provide a number of changes over strips and toothpastes. For immediate results, our in-office treatment uses a bleaching gel and a special light to break up and remove stains in only one sitting, usually in an hour. For more severe stains, we could send you home with a set of custom plastic trays and multiple syringes of the bleaching gel. At home, you fill the trays with gel and wear them for about an hour a day on average, over a period of one to two weeks. Smiles could be eight shades brighter, and you can keep the trays and any remaining gel for touch-ups in the coming months as needed.
Custom Porcelain Veneers
Our team also has an option that provides a full smile makeover for some patients. Porcelain veneers are thin restorations that we place onto the front of your teeth. They instantly change the color and shape of the teeth, correcting damage, discoloration, issues with gaps or the appearance of minor misalignment, and can address misshapen teeth too. Each one is custom-made to blend with your smile and offer a lifelike appearance. They can stay in place for years to come and remain bright with proper care and attention. For some, these alone can offer a stunning new smile, and in only two visits.
If you have minor tooth loss, we can create a custom bridge that addresses between one to three lost teeth in a row. The ceramic restoration contains new teeth with crowns on each end, and we place the crowns on abutment teeth, the ones on each side of the gap. This secures your new ones in place for 10 to 15 years on average, so you have lifelike tooth replacement that restores function and beauty to your smile. If you’re receiving dental implants, we can use ceramic restorations to complete a single tooth dental implant, so you can receive a longer-lasting option to replace lost teeth.
