Cosmetic dentistry uses whitening solutions, dental restorations, and orthodontic appliances to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. Most cosmetic procedures are elective, but some provide the additional benefit of improved oral health. For example, replacing one (or multiple) missing teeth reduces the risk of gum recession, loose teeth, and bone decay.
At Silicon Valley Smile Solutions, Dr. HagShenas and the team offer various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Veneers are thin porcelain shells bonded to the front of your natural teeth. They make your smile appear more balanced and cover minor imperfections like stains, gaps, or unusually shaped teeth. With good oral hygiene, porcelain veneers can last 12-15 years and sometimes longer.
Teeth whitening uses solutions like carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide to remove stains from your teeth. The results aren’t permanent, but they typically last four to six months with good oral hygiene. Silicon Valley Smile Solutions offers two types of teeth whitening – in-office whitening and take-home whitening trays.
A smile makeover combines several different cosmetic dentistry procedures. For example, if you have stained and missing teeth, Dr. HagShenas might recommend teeth whitening followed by dental implant restoration. No two smile makeovers are exactly alike, so the team designs a plan that aligns with your oral health history and needs.
Dental implants are titanium posts that replace your natural tooth roots. They’re inserted into your jaw during an outpatient procedure and provide a foundation for restorations like crowns, a dental bridge, or implant-retained overdentures.
If you have crowded or crooked teeth, you might benefit from orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear, plastic mouthpieces to gradually improve the position of your teeth and jaw. Invisalign is quick and discreet*.
Before recommending cosmetic dentistry, Dr. HagShenas and the team conduct an oral exam, ask what you like and don’t like about your smile, and take oral X-rays. After gathering the necessary information, they develop a custom plan that transforms your smile and oral health.
