Select Smile Makeover Treatments
Dental crowns are porcelain “caps” that cover your natural tooth. They can dramatically improve aesthetics like color, size, and shape of a tooth while also restoring strength and function as well. Crowns can also be used after root canal therapy and to restore a dental implant.
Dental bridges are a series of porcelain dental crowns that replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They attach to one or both teeth on either side of the empty tooth socket(s) to replace aesthetics and function to the area and restore a complete smile after tooth loss.
If you have cosmetic flaws like gaps, chips, crookedness, and discoloration we offer porcelain veneers in Mission Viejo, CA to treat all of these at once. Each veneer is a thin shell that covers the front surface of a single tooth. Dental veneers require a minimal amount of tooth enamel to be removed so they fit naturally alongside each other or existing teeth.
Professional teeth whitening can brighten teeth multiple shades whiter in just a single session! Our professional-grade treatment in Mission Viejo, CA penetrates deep into the inner layers of your teeth to remove deep stains alongside surface-level stains. Teeth whitening from our cosmetic dentist is personalized and monitored for stunning, long-term results.
Braces use metal brackets and wires to straighten crooked teeth by strategically applying torque and pressure. From minor gapped or crooked teeth to severely misaligned bites, our orthodontic options can provide significant cosmetic results. Braces often take a few months to a few years to completely align teeth depending on your unique case.
Invisalign® orthodontics is a series of clear plastic aligners used to straighten crooked teeth. They are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular solution with social teens and professional adults alike. Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat what you want and maintain proper oral hygiene with ease.
An occlusal adjustment helps create a harmonious bite for teeth that don’t fit together properly (malocclusion). This treatment involves altering the surfaces of the problem teeth so the pressure and force when biting and chewing are distributed evenly. Occlusal adjustments help reduce teeth grinding and clenching, jaw pain, and headaches, while also protecting other cosmetic dentistry treatments you receive.
Composite fillings are the metal-free alternative to amalgam fillings that are similarly durable but have greater aesthetics. Composite is naturally tooth-colored, so the filling will blend with your tooth. They can replace metal fillings to eliminate the noticeable gray or black spots on teeth.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays fix teeth with moderate damage that does not require a dental crown. Inlays rest inside the molars, between the cusps, and often restore a tooth after a large cavity is treated. Onlays are custom-made to replace a larger portion of a tooth, usually involving one or more cusps.
A “gummy” smile is when too much gum tissue covers over the tooth crowns and creates a disproportionate tooth-to-gum ratio. Crown lengthening reshapes the gums around the teeth in a more symmetrical and aesthetic way. This procedure may also be completed to access areas of the tooth that have decay.
Dental implants in Mission Viejo, CA permanently replace one or more missing teeth to restore normal function and natural aesthetics. Implants are considered the "gold standard” in tooth replacement due to their superior strength and longevity. They also provide the greatest health benefits by being secured in the jawbone.
