Issues Cosmetic Dentistry Can Correct
Our Select Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Veneers in Concord, CA are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure for crooked or chipped teeth, damaged or stained enamel and small gaps. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that cover just the front portion of teeth that show when you smile. During the first step, our restoration dentist removes a small portion of enamel from your teeth to ensure your veneers will fit seamlessly. An impression is made of your teeth and sent to a dental lab to create your custom-made veneers. You’ll wear temporary veneers until the final veneers come back from the lab and are permanently cemented to your teeth. With minimal preparation and maintenance, porcelain veneers restore the color, size and shape of teeth for long-lasting beauty.
Crowns are porcelain or ceramic “caps” that completely cover outer tooth enamel in teeth too damaged or decayed to be treated with bonding or composite fillings. Crowns are also needed after a root canal procedure to protect the weakened tooth structure. With dental bridges, adjacent teeth are modified and fitted with crowns to support the false tooth in the center. Bridges effectively restore function and beauty to your smile, while preventing remaining teeth from shifting and altering your bite. Dental bridges can also be attached to dental implants instead of adjacent natural teeth.
Bridges are a fixed replacement for one or more missing teeth. Made up of two or more custom dental crowns fused together, dental bridges effectively restore function and aesthetics to your smile. They can also keep remaining teeth from shifting out of place and altering your bite. Dental bridges can also be attached to dental implants instead of adjacent natural teeth.
Professional teeth whitening in Concord, CA is a great option for restoring brightness to your smile. Our in-office teeth whitening solution is carefully calibrated to your specific whitening needs and can produce excellent results in about an hour. We also offer at-home trays customized to your smile that are equally effective, although this option takes longer to produce results. Our restoration dentist will monitor your treatment to ensure whitening looks natural and is aesthetically pleasing.
Inlays and Onlays
Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are made from a porcelain or composite material and attached to your teeth with special dental adhesive. We offer this option when tooth decay is too extensive for a regular composite filling but isn’t large enough for a crown. Inlays replace an inside portion of a tooth to prevent further decay, while onlays restore one or more cusps (raised points) on your tooth to strengthen it and/or restore its natural shape.
Bonding is a cost-effective procedure to repair decayed, damaged or discolored teeth using material that resembles your natural tooth color. Unlike veneers that can only be applied to decay-free teeth, bonding can be used instead of fillings for both imperfections and tooth decay. The surface is roughened, the composite is applied onto your tooth surface and then "sculpted" into the right shape. The last step is to cure it with a special high-intensity light.
Your smile is an important part of your overall appearance that can make an impactful first impression. In fact, your smile can positively or negatively influence your personal, social and professional life, as well as your ability to enjoy food. Our team is dedicated to improving the appearance of your smile by using a variety of cosmetic dentistry options that provide the best results. These may include dental veneers, composite bonding, dental implants, crowns and/or teeth whitening.
While a good first impression starts with your smile, crooked teeth impact more than aesthetics. Misaligned teeth make it harder to properly brush and floss, thereby increasing your risk of decay and gum disease. From diagnosing and treating malocclusion (bad bite) to aligning crooked smiles, our restoration dentist will customize a solution that efficiently addresses your unique needs and personal preferences. The duration of orthodontic treatment is based on your case, but generally takes between six and 24 months.
If you have crooked teeth but aren’t interested in traditional braces, Invisalign may be the perfect solution! This alternative to metal bracket-and-wire braces uses clear aligners to discreetly straighten crooked teeth. The aligners are made of a comfortable, BPA- and latex-free plastic called SmartTrack®. The aligners are worn a minimum of 20 hours a day and changed out about every two weeks to gently move your teeth into the targeted position. In addition to being nearly invisible, clear aligners can be removed for flossing, brushing and eating.
