Want to Make a Better First Impression? Cosmetic Dentistry can Help

better first impression

San Francisco and Marin CA

A bright, confident smile exudes warmth, kindness and friendliness and is one of the best ways to make a lasting first impression. A smile, in fact, is usually the first thing others notice about us. But too many people hide their smiles because they’re embarrassed and self-conscious. Perhaps they have misaligned, stained, chipped, cracked or missing teeth so they smile with their lips closed or with their hand in front of their face. Just like how you spend time choosing your clothing or a hairstyle to help make a first impression, our cosmetic dentist in San Francisco can help you choose your smile. You read that right! A smile makeover is a custom plan tailored just for your smile, based on your specific desires and goals. Let’s look today at the various ways a smile makeover can help you make a dazzling first impression.

 Brighter, whiter teeth

Our most popular cosmetic treatment is professional teeth whitening. Teeth turn dingy or yellow over time, usually due to the foods and beverages we enjoy. Wine, chocolate, dark berries and sodas, tomato sauce and coffee are all known to stain tooth enamel. But all of those stains can be lifted with professional teeth whitening. Unlike over-the-counter whitening strips and kits, our Marin cosmetic dentist can drastically whiten your smile in practically as much time as you spend on your lunch break. Since the whitening is supervised by a trained professional, you can expect for the process to be smoother and more successful than the at-home whitening kits, including less gum irritation and tooth sensitivity and more consistent results.

Repaired chips, cracks and gaps

Through the use of dental bonding or veneers, our San Francisco cosmetic dentist can restore your dental aesthetics by repairing any imperfections or blemishes on your teeth. Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin to a tooth. The dentist shapes the resin then cures and polishes it to make it look like the surrounding teeth, creating a seamless and beautiful smile. Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-fabricated shells usually made of porcelain that cover the front surface of the teeth. Both bonding and veneers restore a tooth’s natural look and function.

Aligned teeth

Get the perfectly aligned smile you’ve always dreamed of with Invisalign clear aligners, which are offered at our cosmetic dentist office in Marin. Invisalign straightens your teeth comfortably and discreetly, unlike traditional metal braces. Our dentist makes digital impressions of the mouth and teeth, creating a custom set of aligner trays that are switched out every couple of weeks to gradually and gently shift the teeth into proper position.

Replace missing teeth

Dental implants are a revolutionary, state-of-the-art restoration treatment for missing teeth. When someone is missing teeth, it can make them ashamed of their smile. It can also affect their ability to speak and eat properly. A dental implant is a titanium post that our dentist surgically inserts into the jawbone. This provides a stable foundation for a crown, which is a replacement tooth and the part of an implant that people will see. Implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth, restoring your smile and improving your overall oral health. Bridges and dentures are also viable options, depending on your specific needs and preferences.

Contour your gums

Some people have an uneven gum line or excessive gum tissue. This can make teeth look smaller or a smile look “gummy.” Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a cosmetic procedure that sculpts and reshapes the gum line to create a more balanced and proportionate smile.
