Prepare Your Smile for the Holiday Season With Cosmetic Dentistry
- Posted on: Dec 15 2022
Dr. Casey Patterson of Simi Valley, CA, is a dentist who is committed to providing patients with general, cosmetic, and restorative solutions to improve their smiles. As the upcoming holidays come near, many patients are looking for ways to boost the appearance of their smiles to look their best.
Below are just a few of the treatments we offer for cosmetic enhancement of the teeth and gums:
- Porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a great way to cover imperfections in the front of the smile that might be negatively impacting its appearance. This includes chips, cracks, gaps, and permanent staining. These thin facings are custom-made to ensure they look just like the rest of the smile.
- Dental implants. Placing and restoring dental implants is a smart way to address tooth loss. Dental implants are titanium posts that are used by dentists as a foundation for a restoration like a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. This method of tooth replacement is extremely effective in restoring both the function and beauty of the smile.
- Teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening services are far more effective at brightening the smile than over-the-counter whitening strips and trays. We encourage patients to ask about this elective treatment if they are interested in bleaching the tooth enamel for a brighter smile!
- Tooth-colored fillings. Our team uses composite resin materials to address areas of tooth decay. Fillings are needed to keep the cavity from getting larger and deeper. Because we use a tooth-colored restoration, patients do not have to worry about their fillings being noticeable within the smile when they talk, smile, and laugh with others.
- Dental bonding. Composite resin is also used as a dental bonding material. Dental bonding can fix chipped, cracked, or otherwise imperfect teeth in a single appointment. Dental bonding is susceptible to staining, so it is vital that patients understand that it will need to be replaced every few years to ensure it looks best.
