Top Cosmetic Dental Treatments in Carlsbad
There’s no investment quite like that of smile makeovers. Carlsbad patients can enjoy a complete smile transformation by choosing one or a combination of various cosmetic dental treatments that we offer in our practice.
No two smile makeovers are alike! So, if you’re considering finding a cosmetic dentist in Carlsbad, be sure to ask about these top aesthetic treatments:
Dental Veneers (Carlsbad)
What if you could dramatically make over your entire smile in less than a month? With dental veneers, it’s a reality.
Porcelain dental veneers are thin layers of ceramic that we bond over the front of your visible healthy teeth. Each one is shaped in such a way that, when paired with the other veneers, makes your smile look whiter, straighter, and properly shaped.
Unlike crowns or fillings, veneers are placed across several teeth at a time for a more dramatic impact on your appearance. We typically recommend anywhere from 6-10 veneers across your upper front teeth, depending on how many are visible.
ClearCorrect Aligners for Straighter Teeth
If you have crooked teeth, ClearCorrect aligners (Carlsbad) can straighten them without the need for metal braces. Instead, you’ll wear a set of transparent tooth alignment trays to reposition your smile, then change each pair out as directed. In time, your teeth will become straighter without uncomfortable wires or adjustments.
As an added bonus, ClearCorrect is easy to care for and you can eat whatever you like. Plus, they’re practically invisible, keeping your smile makeover on the down low.
Using ClearCorrect to improve your smile’s appearance is a healthy, non-invasive option when you have teeth that don’t require dental work. They simply improve the symmetry of your mouth, which makes your smile naturally more attractive. And if you like, you can pair it together with a whitening treatment.
Composite Fillings or Dental Bonding
When teeth have small chips or cavities, those discrepancies can detract from your entire appearance. Especially if the area is in a front tooth or older styles of metal fillings are used to repair them. Fortunately, composite fillings (Carlsbad) and composite bonding are made to match the enamel surrounding it.
The main difference between white fillings and dental bonding is how they’re used; otherwise, the material is nearly identical. Fillings are for repairing areas of tooth decay, whereas bonding is shaped over healthy enamel with chips or surface discrepancies. Both leave the tooth looking whole and functioning properly.
Since composite materials come in a variety of shades, it’s easy to select one that will blend in with your smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Before your smile makeover—or instead of other cosmetic treatment—you may want to consider having your teeth professionally whitened. This step creates a brighter template to match new restorations against. And if your teeth are already fairly aligned and healthy, brightening them by several shades could be all you need to feel more confident. It isn’t possible to whiten dental work, so it’s best to start with a brighter color to begin with.
Professional teeth whitening is drastically stronger than commercial bleaching agents you’ll find in stores. When used as directed, you can see up to 6-8 shades of improvement in as little as 10-14 days, or ask about a same-day whitening treatment if you’re crunched for time.
Updating Old Dental Work
When you have older fillings or bonding that need to be replaced, we can change them out with newer ones or full-coverage ceramic crowns. Porcelain crowns work best in instances where white fillings or dental veneers (Carlsbad) are no longer appropriate, due to the size of the area involved.
Each custom crown is handcrafted to blend in with your overall smile. They can also be placed on top of dental implants if you have missing teeth.
