Cosmetic dentistry is our way of helping you obtain a beautiful smile once again. If you have broken, stained or uneven teeth, we offer a variety of treatments to help.
Your cosmetic dentist in San Francisco, CA offers a metal-free way to straighten your teeth—and it is removable, too! This alternative appliance to braces is comfortable and removable, making it easier for you to eat whatever you want, and to clean with less hassle. Without tooth decay, mouth sores, pain or discomfort to contend with, Invisalign® offers a modern teeth-straightening option for you.
At your first consultation, you will have digital x-rays taken to determine whether or not Invisalign® is a good option for you. If so, impressions of your teeth will be made, and 3-D images of your teeth-straightening plan will be mapped out. From there, custom trays will be fabricated specifically for your teeth. You will be given two trays—a top and bottom—for you to wear and change out every few weeks, only to remove when eating and cleaning your teeth. Talk to us about the frequency of new trays, and when you should check in to monitor your results.
Veneers made of porcelain allow for us to transform your smile without any form of braces or surgery. If you have uneven teeth, exceptional wear and tear, or have teeth that are uneven in color, you may be a candidate for veneers.
Thin shells of porcelain that mimic the color of your enamel are placed over the surfaces of your teeth, and typically last between seven to 10 years before needing replacement. After an examination of your teeth, we will remove a small amount of enamel and create an impression of your mouth. Then, veneers are created and applied using a cement to bond the teeth and the porcelain together.
If you have a cavity and are looking to fill your tooth with a metal-free filling, then this is the alterative for you! Designed to look and feel like the color and texture of your tooth, composite fillings create a stronger bond to your tooth structure than metal fillings. Made up of a glass and plastic mixture, these fillings are used to restore decayed teeth. After local anesthesia is applied and the decay is removed, your composite filling is placed and shaped, creating a natural-looking surface.
Our teeth whitening solutions provide an answer to your unwanted discolored teeth! We provide in-office procedures, custom take-home trays, strong teeth whitening agents, protective measures and a treatment plan to help your teeth look brighter than ever. Over-the-counter gels, rinses and strips may seem like a quick fix, but professional teeth whitening is a safe way to see more effective results.
