Cosmetic dentistry beautifies your teeth and your smile. Modern cosmetic procedures range from basic color corrections to repairing or replacing broken or missing teeth. Even small steps can improve your overall appearance to boost your confidence and self-esteem dramatically. Cosmetic dentistry can give you a reason to smile.
Our La Mesa dentist performs a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures to keep your smile looking bright and healthy. These procedures include:
Our dentist understands that stained, yellow teeth can cause even the most beautiful smile to appear dull or unhealthy, so we perform teeth whitening to give you the whitest, brightest smile possible. In fact, teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at Authentic Dental Designs. Your teeth can be up to ten shades whiter after just one session, results just not possible with over-the-counter products.
Teeth cleaning in La Mesa at least twice a year can improve your oral health and keep your teeth looking their best. Teeth cleaning involves the removal of unattractive plaque and tartar that can cause gum disease and even tooth loss.
Cavities can severely damage teeth, inside and out. After performing a root canal to remove the diseased tissue inside your tooth, our Le Mesa dentist may apply a crown to protect the tooth from further damage and to restore function and appearance.
Gum recontouring helps you overcome a “gummy smile” caused by gums extending too far onto the surface of your teeth. To perform gum recontouring, our dentist uses a diode laser to sculpt your gum line gently to reveal more of your pearly whites.
Veneers are thin tooth-colored porcelain shells that fit snugly over teeth to cover stains or hide flaws, such as broken, cracked or misshapen teeth. Veneers can also straighten the appearance of crooked teeth.
Have you lost a tooth? Dental implants may be for you.
A dental implant replaces the roots of a lost tooth, while a crown fitted to the top of the implant replaces the visible portion of the missing tooth.
In addition to replacing missing teeth, dental implants also maintain bone support of adjacent teeth in a way that extends the lifespan of those teeth. Dental implants are permanent, improving your smile for years to come.
