Fresno cosmetic dentistryIt’s an open secret that healthy teeth are not naturally as straight, white or symmetrical as most of us would like them to be. Some of us may be blessed with good genes and naturally straight, even smiles, but most of us do not achieve our ideal smiles without a little help from cosmetic dentistry.

In the past, it was good enough just to have most of our teeth; but today a glowing, bright smile is a sign of beauty and vitality. The plethora of successful dental practices in our society a sign of how much we have advanced in the last century. We have the technology and medical knowledge to provide good dental care to the public, and we celebrate this fact. We value good health, so we value an attractive smile.

Now that we can all have strong teeth that last a lifetime, it’s natural that we want to go a step beyond function, and make our smiles as beautiful as they are stable. Who doesn’t want to have a bright smile to show the world? Whether you seek dramatic transformations or minor improvements, cosmetic dentistry offers flexible treatments to give you the smile you desire.

Finding Your Ideal Smile

For most patients, cosmetic treatments are an excellent way to boost your self-confidence and give you a reason to smile more often. Many first-time patients are surprised to learn about the improvements that are possible with conservative cosmetic treatments, and are thrilled when they achieve the perfect smile they’ve always wanted.

Take a look at your most recent photos, and consider what you might want to change about your smile. Conditions that can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry include:

  • Stains: overall dullness and yellowing of the teeth, and dark or internal stains.
  • Chips
  • Thinned enamel
  • Inconsistent tooth size
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded or crooked teeth
  • Ridges or uneven texture of enamel
  • An overly “gummy” smile
  • Uneven arches
  • Unattractive tooth shape: too pointy, or too square
  • Jagged tooth line

Smile Maintenance

Even if you already love your smile, it’s an unfortunate fact of aging that time is not kind to our teeth. As we get older, enamel becomes thinner and more brittle. Teeth become more prone to cracking and breaking, which can cause sensitivity and dental insecurity. Years of pigment stains can accumulate deep in the surface of the enamel. As it turns out, many treatments for structural weaknesses of the teeth can also restore the beauty of your smile. For example, bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers are excellent ways to protect weakened enamel while improving appearance.

Whether you are considering a complete smile makeover, or just one or two specific changes–cosmetic dentistry offers a number of flexible treatments to correct the flaws keep you from loving your smile.

Porcelain Veneers – The n’est plus ultra of cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers can permanently change the size, texture, color, and shape of one or many teeth. When you see a dramatic dental transformation that seems to take place overnight, it’s usually the result of porcelain veneers.

Dental Bonding – Less permanent (but more affordable) than veneers, composite bonding is an excellent way to correct chips, gaps, and stains that do not respond to whitening treatment.

Dental Crowns – Full ceramic crowns are a beautiful way to cover and protect a broken, cracked or compromised tooth.

In-Office Whitening – Whether you want a subtle change or extreme results, in-office treatments are faster and more efficient that store-bought whitening products.

Full Mouth Reconstruction – For patients with multiple structural and/or alignment problems, this comprehensive treatment can correct and restore teeth while improving appearance.

Metal Filling Replacement – Even very old amalgam fillings can be replaced with tooth-colored composite fillings. If you see too much metal when you speak, smile, or laugh, this treatment can restore a more youthful appearance.
