Our Redondo Beach dentist can evaluate a patient to confirm whether he or she is a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. These treatments can do wonders for patients who are in good dental health but are unhappy or uncomfortable with the outward appearance of their teeth. The nature of the presenting problem will determine the nature of the procedure that our Redondo Beach cosmetic dentist can perform.
One of the most commonly requested procedures performed by our Redondo Beach cosmetic dentist is teeth whitening. The purpose of this process is to restore the original color to teeth that have been stained through years of exposure to tobacco or dark colored liquids. The treatment involves one or more applications of a peroxide whitening gel to stained teeth until the desired color is obtained.
Not all people are blessed with a stunning smile. Our Redondo Beach cosmetic dentist can help those patients who are not comfortable with how their teeth look and give them that stunning smile.
Redondo Beach Cosmetic DentistAnother common procedure undertaken by our cosmetic dentist in Redondo Beach is the application of porcelain crowns. A porcelain crown is frequently applied to a broken or cracked tooth, or to a tooth that has recently been host to a root canal. The crown is a piece of porcelain that has been professionally shaped to resemble the original shape and color of the cracked or broken tooth. The crown is cemented to the original tooth after the tooth has been cleaned and prepared to receive the crown. In many cases, the crown so closely resembles the original healthy tooth that it is not possible to distinguish a tooth covered by a crown from an original one.
Other cosmetic dentistry procedures include the application of veneers or the installation of bridges. Veneers are often applied to the front teeth that are visible during smiling. Bridges are fake teeth that can help complete gaps in a person's smile that result from missing teeth. Our dentist in Redondo Beach can provide additional information regarding cosmetic dentistry treatments and how they can help you have a better-looking smile.
