Reasons to Consider Cosmetic Dentistry
Whiten Your Smile
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile. Our dentist in Whittier, CA, offers in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments to help brighten your smile by several shades.
Straighten Crooked Teeth
If you have crooked teeth, Invisalign clear aligners can help straighten them discreetly. These removable plastic trays are worn for about two weeks to move your teeth into the desired position gradually.
Repair Chipped or Cracked Teeth
Chips or cracks in your teeth can be repaired with composite resin bonding or porcelain veneers. Both options involve applying a tooth-colored material over the damaged tooth to restore its appearance.
Close Gaps in Your Smile
If you have a gap between two teeth, it can be closed using dental bonding or veneers. Bonding involves applying a putty-like material to the tooth’s surface, while veneers are thin shells placed over the front of your tooth.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic dental treatments in Whittier, CA. This simple procedure can be completed quickly in our office or at home with take-home trays. Professional teeth whitening treatments use more vital bleaching agents than over-the-counter products. They can remove stains caused by coffee, tea, wine, smoking, and other habits.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth. They are used to fix chips, cracks, discoloration, misalignment, and gaps in your teeth. Veneers can also close spaces between teeth and cover any imperfections on your teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a cap that fits over your tooth to restore its shape and strength. Bridges are artificial tooth replacements that “bridge” the gap left by missing teeth. Both can be used to improve the appearance of your smile.
