Are you getting tired of an unflattering smile? You are not alone. About 36% of Americans are not happy with their smile. Luckily, there are plenty of Cosmetic Dental Procedures in San Francisco that can help you out. At West Portal Family Dentistry, we understand that your smile means a lot to you. For this reason, we offer the cosmetic dentistry services below to shape your smile just the way you want it.
Dr. Terri Nguyen may recommend dental crowns to cover your teeth imperfections if you have stained, damaged, or chipped teeth. Dental crowns are tooth caps made of tooth-colored materials to disguise your teeth’ flaws.
In our clinic, we design teeth crowns with different shapes, sizes, and colors to address various needs. Ultimately, crowns improve not only your appearance but also strengthen the functionality of your teeth.
Unlike dental crowns, teeth bridges are used to fill up gaps left by missing teeth. Bridges are made of artificial teeth (pontics) supported on either side by existing teeth or implants. Simply put, as its name suggests, bridges are used to bridge spaces in your teeth, giving you a complete smile.
No one likes a dull, yellowed smile. While teeth discoloration can be prevented, in some cases, it’s genetic, leaving you with no option but to seek teeth whitening services. Although you can turn to over-the-counter whitening products, you should consider professional teeth whitening from our clinic for the following reasons:
Because most DIY products are untested and ineffective, always consider teeth whitening from a professional dentist to get the intended results.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells installed in the front teeth to correct teeth imperfections like stains, cracks, chips, and oddly-shaped teeth. To benefit from veneers, you need at least two dental appointments, but they are worth it. After the procedure, you will walk away with a stunning smile.
Whether you are missing one or more teeth, there are numerous health concerns you can get from a gap-toothed smile other than aesthetic issues. If left untreated, lost teeth lead to a sunken face, alter your speech, and impede your chewing ability. You definitely don’t want this. The good news is that dental implants can give you a permanent solution to your missing teeth.
If you don’t have the budget to install veneers, dental bonding is worth a try. Dental bonding uses a composite resin material bonded on the tooth to disguise teeth flaws, including stains, cracks, chips, and gaps.
Dental fillings are a perfect way of treating minor cavities. After removing the decayed material, Dr. Terri Nguyen uses composite resin fillings to fill up the gap. The filling is so natural that an unsuspecting eye can’t tell the difference.
