You Don't Have To Hide Your Smile

It’s no secret that a great smile is most often powered by great teeth. If your teeth only serve to detract from your smile, compelling you into a closed-lip grin, we can help you smile widely and broadly through our cosmetic makeover services.

From dental bonding to dental implants, the team here at Peninsula Dental Excellence offers the tools you need to smile with confidence. Under the direction of Drs. Colin Au and Jeff Yoshihara, we can bring your smile out of hiding by correcting a host of cosmetic issues, including staining, missing teeth, chips, and more, through our advanced cosmetic dentistry services.

An easy fix

One of the quickest and most economical tools in our cosmetic makeover arsenal is dental bonding. With dental bonding, we can address a host of imperfections, including:

The composite resin we use matches the natural coloring of your teeth so that the dental bonding goes completely unnoticed. 

Most dental bonding procedures take less than an hour, at which time you can leave our office with a more perfect smile.

The perfect coverup

If you want to go a step further, we offer dental veneers, which are wafer-thin shells that we place over the teeth in your “smile zone.”

Veneers are a great way to cover up aging and discolored teeth, as well as help your teeth form a beautiful straight line. Our veneers are made from porcelain or composite-resin materials and they can perform any number of functions, including changing the length, shape, size, and/or color of your teeth.

A crowning moment

Dental crowns are one of the handiest tools in dentistry as they perform both functional and cosmetic roles. With a dental crown, we can cover up teeth that have extensive decay or dental work, allowing us to preserve that tooth. We can also cap severely discolored or misshapen teeth. Finally, we use dental crowns to cover an implant.

The crown itself fits in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, matching both the size and color of its neighbors. Crowns also excel in strength, allowing you to chew as you normally would.

If time is of the essence, we offer CEREC® same-day crowns, which allows us to cap your problematic tooth in just one visit.

Dental implants

If you’re missing a tooth, we offer dental implants, which mimic your natural tooth right down to the roots. Dental crowns not only fill unsightly gaps in your smile, they function almost as well as your natural tooth because we set the implant into your jawbone. Once the implant is fused into place, we cover it with a dental crown, allowing you to chew, talk, and smile with ease.

Whiten up

If your teeth are healthy, but their coloring is less than ideal, we offer professional teeth whitening. In just one hour, we’re able to whiten and brighten your teeth by several shades thanks to our professional-grade bleaching products and special lights. If you’d prefer a more gradual approach to your whitening, you can try our take-home whitening kits. 

If you’ve been hiding your smile because of a cosmetic concern, contact our office in Mountain View, California, to figure out which services will bring out the best in your smile.
