How Cosmetic Dental Care Can Help You
If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, our cosmetic dentist can help you to improve your smile. Whether your teeth are stained or discolored, chipped or worn, misaligned or misshapen, or even if you have gaps or missing teeth, we have a dental treatment that is just right for your smile makeover!
Teeth can become stained and discolored from food, drinks or smoking. Teeth whitening is one of the most common procedures within cosmetic dental care. Take advantage of this very simple procedure that produces great results!
Dental veneers can be applied by dentists to improve the size, shape, or color of a tooth. They are wafer-thin composite or porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of a discolored, chipped or misshapen tooth for a brighter smile.
If your teeth are weakened, misshapen or damaged due to decay or trauma, dental crowns may be an option. These are a type of cap that can be cemented in place over the entire damaged tooth to improve its appearance and strength.
If you have any missing teeth, dental bridges can be an option to help restore the gaps in your smile. A dental bridge involves using the teeth on either side of the missing tooth (or abutment teeth) to hold a false tooth (or pontic) in place.
Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive dental treatment that involves the rebuilding or restoration of all upper and lower teeth. The procedure is recommended only when functional problems exist alongside any cosmetic issues.
Reshaping the gum can even out any irregularities that may exist along the gum line to give you a more even smile. The procedure involves removing a portion of any excess gum tissue to align with the rest of your gum line.
Teeth that are broken, chipped, decayed, or misshapen may be repaired through teeth bonding. This involves the use of a tooth-colored dental composite resin that is applied to the tooth then shaped and polished to mend the damage.
Reshaping your teeth is painless and easy and can give you a more attractive smile! If you have unevenly shaped teeth, any slight irregularities or jagged teeth edges, we may be able to reshape your teeth by filing or removing some of the enamel.

How much does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?
The cost of cosmetic dentistry varies greatly depending on the type and extent of the procedure. Teeth whitening is one of the least expensive ways to improve your smile, while something like a full mouth reconstruction can cost a lot more. While many cosmetic dentistry treatments are considered elective and therefore not covered by insurance, some procedures may be covered.
For example, a dental implant to replace a missing tooth is generally covered by most insurances, while a dental crown may be considered elective. As a family dentist dedicated to catering to every demographic, we accept and are well versed in a large variety of insurance coverages including MediCal dental coverage, and always strive to keep your out of pocket costs to a minimum.
