Is your smile one of your least-liked features? Change it with a cosmetic dentistry treatment. San Marcos, CA, dentist Dr. Khanda Miller discusses several treatments that can improve your smile.
Contouring and reshaping
Removing a small amount of tooth enamel can drastically change the appearance of a tooth. Contouring and reshaping makes crooked teeth look straighter and eliminates chips, points and overlapping areas.
When imperfections only affect the front of a tooth, porcelain veneers offer an ideal way to upgrade your appearance. The thin porcelain shells are cemented on to the front surfaces of teeth, providing excellent coverage for a variety of flaws, including discolorations, chips, cracks and uneven surfaces. The restorations are also used to improve the shape of teeth and eliminate gaps between them.
Don't have the patience to spend weeks lightening your teeth with a drugstore kit? Professional whitening offers a better option. Your teeth will probably be about three to eight shades whiter after one whitening session. If you have stubborn stains, you may need to return to our San Marcos office for another session. You can maintain your results for several years by avoiding brightly colored foods and beverages that stain teeth.
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic solution that uses removable trays to realign teeth instead of wires. Trays are made using computerized technology and are designed to be worn for two weeks before they're replaced with a new set. Many people choose Invisalign because the clear aligners don't draw attention to the fact that you're improving your smile, but the system also makes mealtime easier. When it's time to eat, you'll remove your aligners and will be able to eat anything you want, unlike people who wear metal braces.
Has your smile been altered by a missing tooth? Dental implants offer a long-lasting solution to tooth loss. Implants are small titanium posts that replace tooth roots. The posts soon become a permanent part of your mouth when they fuse to your jawbone. The addition of a crown to the top of your dental implant restores your appearance and makes eating comfortable.
