There are few of us that actually love going to the dentist’s office. Between dental anxiety, cost concerns, and unfamiliarity with dental procedures, there are plenty of reasons to feel nervous about your exams. And if seeking preventive care seems unappealing, how can you decide on taking extra steps like cosmetic dentistry? Fortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all smile makeover, and our Oakland team will find the treatment plan that’s right for you.
Cosmetic procedures range from simple to complex, and many patients see superb results with just one quick treatment session. See if your aesthetic interests match any of the options below, and get in touch to learn more about whether you’re a candidate for the treatment. Consultations are always free, and there’s so much you can learn from a quick conversation with our team.
Patient-Friendly Cosmetic Dentistry
Some of the simplest, easiest-to-receive aesthetic treatments include:
- Dental bonding – Bonding applies tooth-colored composite to your teeth, covering up any areas that may be vulnerable or aesthetically compromised. This can apply to tooth roots exposed by gum recession, stained patches of enamel, or surfaces worn by grinding or gradual erosion. Bonding also helps fill gaps between teeth to build out your smile.
- Teeth whitening – Long the most popular cosmetic treatment, teeth whitening is both accessible and successful. Lightening the shade of your teeth make you appear younger and more composed, and can have a much bigger impact on your overall appearance than you might expect. Plus, you can whiten in-office or at home, with a plan that fits your schedule.
- Recontouring – Gently tweaking the line of your smile can improve symmetry and help minimize any flaws. As an added bonus, this treatment can typically be performed without local anesthesia, so there are no shots necessary!
- Adult orthodontics – Since there’s a long process involved, this might not seem like a low-key treatment option. But when you compare adult orthodontics to metal braces, you’ll see that Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are leaps and bounds ahead of traditional treatment. You can straighten subtly and comfortably, and still feel confident throughout.
