Give Your Smile a Makeover This Year

Give Your Smile a Makeover This Year

Entering a new year is a great time to make changes, especially those that give you something to smile about for years. If you have a few imperfections standing in the way of your dream smile, the odds are good that we can address them. 

At Peninsula Dental Excellence, Drs. Colin Au and Jeff Yoshihara offer comprehensive cosmetic smile makeover services that can transform smiles.

If you want a smile that will greet the world with confidence and vitality, here’s how we can get you there.

Smile imperfections

Few of us are born with all the ingredients for a fabulous smile — perfectly sized pearly whites that line up neatly. Instead, most of us have smile imperfections, whether born with them or they crop up over time. These imperfections include:

We have the tools and services you need to address these issues.

Making over your smile

There are several different tools at our disposal when it comes to smile makeovers, including:

Teeth whitening

This is one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your smile. If you give us just one hour, we can whiten and brighten your teeth by several shades.

Dental crowns

If there were one workhorse in our field, it would be the dental crown. The caps are made from strong materials that mimic the coloring of your natural teeth. From covering up damaged teeth to putting the finishing touches on a dental implant, these caps can play a critical role in a smile makeover.

Dental implants

While it may have been cute as a child, nothing can wreck a great adult smile more than a missing tooth. About half a million people in the United States turn to dental implants each year to remedy the problem. These replacement teeth not only fit in flawlessly with your existing teeth but also provide superior stability and longevity.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are a great option if your teeth are discolored beyond our ability to whiten them or they have imperfections like chips or cracks. With dental veneers, we place wafer-thin shells over the fronts of the teeth in your smile zone, giving them a whiter color and more uniformity.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a great option if you don’t want to commit to veneers. With dental bonding, we use a resin to cover up certain imperfections, such as chips and cracks. We can also use dental bonding for misshapen or uneven teeth.

As you can see, there are many ways in which we can improve your smile, allowing you to smile your way through the new year and beyond. To determine which cosmetic dentistry options are right for you, please contact our office in Mountain View, California, to schedule a consultation.
