Were you born with a picture-perfect smile? Most people have something they would like to change about the appearance of their teeth. Maybe they dislike the uneven gaps or spaces between teeth. Often a chipped or broken tooth can cause someone to try to hide their smile. One of the most common concerns we hear about is the brightness of their smile.
We Take Your Unique Needs Into Account
We know that not every patient who comes to our Manhattan Beach Cosmetic Dentist office is the same. The treatment we recommend to address cosmetic dental concerns needs to be matched to the individual patient and their needs and desires. Fortunately, we offer a variety of cosmetic treatments, which allows us to work with you to determine which one is most appropriate in your specific case.
Finding the Right Treatment
Probably the complaint we hear most frequently from our patients is that the youthful brightness of their smile has faded, leaving their teeth looking dull or stained. This change can be the result of any number of issues. Consuming discoloring foods or drinks, such as wine, cola, coffee, and tea is the main culprit. However, structural changes in the tooth can also cause teeth to look darker. Over time the surface enamel of your teeth can thin, allowing more of the underlying yellowish dentin to show through.
Patients suffering from dental staining can benefit greatly from professional teeth whitening treatments. These treatments bleach dental enamel, lighten stains, and refresh the appearance of teeth. If teeth whitening treatments are not successful for you, you may find that porcelain veneers are effective. Our beautiful, natural-looking veneers completely cover the surface of a tooth to mask even severely stained teeth that resist whitening.
Another common complaint from patients is that their teeth are crooked, misaligned, or uneven. Porcelain veneers can also give the appearance of a straight, seamless smile, and we can place your new veneers in only two appointments. Our veneers are expertly shaped and shaded by our dentist to fit your smile, so they are sure to look natural and enhance your overall appearance.
