By utilizing advanced technology, our San Marcos cosmetic dentist is able to help patients enhance the natural beauty of their smiles while improving their overall health and function of their dentition.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a broad term that refers to any procedure that improves the aesthetic quality of a patient’s smile. Depending on the patient’s needs, cosmetic dentistry could mean realigning the teeth with Invisalign®, covering misshapen teeth with veneers, or even replacing missing teeth with dental implants. In reality, many treatments designed to restore or improve the functionality of teeth also include a cosmetic component.
Cosmetic Services at Smiles of San Marcos
At our San Marcos dental practice, our mission is to provide patients with care that provides improved oral function. Beginning with an in-depth dental evaluation, our San Marcos cosmetic dentist examines your smile for potential issues. Treatment plans are then developed to address these issues and ensure the longevity of your cosmetic treatment.
Depending on the idea you have in mind for your ideal smile, as well as the condition of your dentition, your tailored cosmetic treatment may include one or more of the following procedures:
Opalescence® Chairside and Take-Home Teeth Whitening: For patients looking to non-invasively transform the look of their smile, teeth whitening is an ideal solution. Opalescence uses a specialized gel with potassium fluoride, which helps to reduce tooth sensitivity while strengthening enamel and lifting stains.
Composite Bonding: Another minimally invasive treatment option, bonding is an ideal solution for filling in gaps or chips on teeth. Bonding resin is tooth-colored, ensuring seamless smile enhancement.
Veneers: For patients with intrinsic staining, cracked, or misshapen teeth, veneers are an ideal solution that restores uniformity and aesthetics. Made of porcelain, veneers are created to look exactly like the neighboring teeth, improving the overall whiteness and appearance of your smile.
Invisalign®: Realigning teeth can also be an excellent way to enhance beauty and function. As Invisalign® uses clear aligning trays to reposition teeth, patients are able to discreetly yet effectively improve alignment.
Dental Implants: This restorative treatment is ideal for replacing missing or severely damaged teeth. At Smiles of San Marcos, our implant dentist offers a number of implant options, including single crown restorations, All-on-4, implant-supported dentures, and mini implants.
