Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a quickly growing specialty field that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. Dr. Zahedi offers cosmetic dentistry treatments to:

  • Change the size and shape of your teeth
  • Correct the alignment of your teeth
  • Reduce the appearance of gaps between your teeth
  • Whiten and brighten your teeth
  • Replace old dental treatments

Many cosmetic treatments are also used to restore your teeth, such as dental bonding to repair chipped teeth or dental bridges to replace lost teeth.

What are common cosmetic dentistry treatments?

Dr. Zahedi offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve your smile. In addition to Invisalign®, crowns, and bridges, some of the most popular procedures include:

Teeth whitening

Dr. Zahedi offers custom-made trays and professional-grade whitening solution so you can brighten your smile from the comfort of your own home. You’ll have two appointments. At the first appointment, Dr. Zahedi takes impressions of your teeth which are used to create custom trays. At your second appointment, he checks the fit and provides the whitening solution. You wear the trays for 30 minutes a day or overnight — depending on the degree of staining — for a couple of weeks.

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-crafted in a dental lab to fit your teeth and create a perfect smile. Dr. Zahedi bonds the veneers to the fronts of your teeth to cover imperfections and reshape your teeth and smile. They’re usually applied in two visits and can last for many years with proper care.

Composite fillings

Composite fillings are a more cosmetically appealing option than traditional silver amalgam fillings to repair a tooth affected by decay or other damage. Composite fillings are tooth colored and can be tinted to closely match the color of your teeth so they’re less noticeable.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a combination of dental treatments to address a variety of cosmetic concerns and create a picture-perfect smile. For example, you may want to correct the alignment of your teeth and brighten your smile, so Dr. Zahedi might recommend Invisalign treatment, teeth whitening, and dental crowns to create a bright, symmetrical smile.

Each smile makeover is customized to address the specific concerns of each individual. To create your perfect smile, call or schedule a consultation online today.
