The Smiles on Bristol Dentistry team in Santa Ana, CA, offers many options for cosmetic dental treatments for our patients. Cosmetic Dentistry refers to dental procedures that improve the aesthetic appearance of a patient’s smile without necessarily providing any health benefit. Cosmetic dentistry can include veneers, implants, and teeth whitening.
Tooth whitening is the number one requested cosmetic procedure. There are at home whitening kits, but patients who want the best results should have a consultation with either Dr. Kalantari or Dr. Arcila to get professional and personalized results. Teeth can also be reshaped either with grinding down small amounts of the enamel or with bonding which affixes an enamel-like mouth-safe substance to the tooth to smooth out roughness or irregularities.
Dentists may also do different types of gum manipulation such as removal or reshaping to create an improved appearance. Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain fake teeth that are bonded to the front of a patient’s original teeth. This can fill gaps and can make teeth more uniform. They can also be used to conceal discolored teeth that are resistant to whitening.
Come in to Smiles on Bristol’s Santa Ana office for a consultation on any cosmetic dental procedure. Our professional staff will be happy to guide you in the best possible options to get you the mouth you have always wanted!
