Cosmetic Dentist in San Jose
Bleaching is a common and highly desirable procedure that lightens the tooth shade to enhance aesthetics. Bleaching is safe, effective, and can be performed at home. New methods and materials have made dentist-supervised bleaching more affordable and attainable. With professional supervision, anyone can have a whiter, more beautiful smile.
As children grow to adolescence, their appearance—particularly their smile— is a very important factor in promoting self-confidence and a healthy self-image. When decay or injury necessitates the filling and repair of teeth, cosmetic bonding may be indicated. We use the most advanced materials and techniques. Patients and parents appreciate maintaining a beautiful smile with the new invisible fillings. These modern restorations look and feel like natural teeth! Your child can eat, speak, and smile with confidence and self-assurance.
Aesthetic Anterior Crowns
When a primary tooth suffers extensive decay, a filling is not an adequate restoration. Instead, a stainless steel crown is required. Fortunately, the front of the crown on a front tooth can be white . This has the obvious advantage of creating a beautiful smile while preserving the tooth until its normal time to come out (exfoliate). Children and parents alike prefer white crowns to the traditional stainless steel crowns.
Replacing Anterior (Front) Primary teeth
When decay is so severe that the teeth have become infected (abscessed), they must be removed. Replacement of the upper anterior teeth is desirable in patients who are five years old or younger. The appliance of choice is fixed (cemented to place) and not removable. This “baby partial denture” looks and feels natural to the patients and parents. In addition to maintaining aesthetics it helps the young child achieve correct speech patterns, chewing efficiency, and the self-confidence that comes with normal appearance.
