What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
At our Walnut Creek dental office we provide a full range of cosmetic dental procedures with exciting results to dramatically improve a person's smile!
Both socially and professionally in the business world a person's smile makes a lasting impression. People often become accustomed to their teeth and tend to accept unattractive aspects of their smile as unalterable.
Common cosmetic dentistry procedures can be performed to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. They also can be used to change the overall shape of teeth-from teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be reshaped.
Some of the more common procedures involve:
- Bonding - A procedure in which tooth-colored material is used to close gaps or change tooth color.
- Contouring and reshaping - A procedure that straightens crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth.
- Veneers - A procedure in which ultra-thin coatings are placed over the front teeth. Veneers can change the color or shape of your teeth. For example, veneers have been used to correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped or discolored teeth.
- Whitening and bleaching - As the term implies, whitening and bleaching, a rapidly increasing procedure, are used to make teeth whiter.
Cosmetic dental procedures can be viewed as an investment in yourself and your teeth. An investment that you can utilize and enjoy every day.
We all want to look our best and through the remarkable procedures and materials of cosmetic dentistry we can have our best smile!
