Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. Although most cosmetic dentistry procedures are elective, some can improve your oral health as well.
Cosmetic dentistry techniques are incredibly versatile and can address a wide range of problems, including the color, shape, size, position, and alignment of your teeth and smile.
You can access several types of cosmetic dentistry at Peninsula Dental Excellence, including:
If you have chipped, cracked, misshapen, or uneven teeth, your Peninsula Dental Excellence provider might recommend dental bonding. Bonding uses a material called resin to improve the appearance and function of damaged teeth. Combined with shaping and contouring, this quick, painless process can give you a more even and attractive smile. Even better? This type of treatment usually doesn’t require anesthesia.
Dental veneers are custom-crafted shells of composite resin or porcelain that your Peninsula Dental Excellence provider bonds to the front of your natural, permanent teeth. You can receive one or two veneers, but most people get six or eight. This restores balance and symmetry to your smile and effectively improves the appearance of crooked, pointy, or smaller-than-average teeth.
If you’re missing several teeth or you need to address significant damage as a result of an accident or injury, your provider might recommend a cosmetic smile makeover. This type of cosmetic dentistry combines several treatments to restore your smile to a healthier, more attractive condition. Peninsula Dental Excellence conducts smile makeovers with a lab technician in the office.
Only a qualified dentist can determine the type of cosmetic dentistry you’ll most benefit from. Peninsula Dental Excellence offers free cosmetic smile consultations.
During your appointment, your provider conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks you about your goals for treatment.
They also take oral X-rays to get a closer look at your jaw, tooth roots, and the position of your teeth. After gathering this information, your provider can make recommendations and develop a custom care plan.
