Cosmetic Dentistry in Anaheim Hills
Many patients tell us that only “shallow” people care about the way they look, but according to some recent studies, the appearance of your smile can directly affect how others perceive you. An employment survey revealed that patients with attractive smiles were more likely to get a job or a promotion, and similar research suggested that people with cosmetically appealing smiles were perceived as more intelligent, healthier, and attractive. It’s amazing how much a split-second view of a damaged, decayed, or stained smile can color a first impression. If you’re less than happy with your teeth, there’s nothing shallow about wanting it to look as healthy as it feels. At Hillsview Dental Care in Anaheim Hills, we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry options to enhance any smile.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile and affordable way to improve the appearance of chipped, stained, and gapped teeth. As one of the most conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments around, cosmetic dental bonding requires little to no prepping and preserves most of the natural tooth structure. It’s fast too! Dental bonding usually takes just one visit to complete.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
Although dental crowns can be made of a variety of materials, including stainless steel, gold, and silver, nothing looks better than a porcelain dental crown. Porcelain dental crowns match the natural color of your teeth and are virtually undetectable to the naked eye. Plus, because they're metal-free, porcelain dental crowns are an excellent option for patients with metal allergies. Best of all, porcelain crowns don't just look beautiful – they're long-lasting too!
Years ago, smile makeovers involved multiple dental treatments over a period of several months. That's no longer the case, thanks to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells made of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth for cosmetic purposes. Extremely versatile and durable, porcelain veneers are an excellent option whether you want a total smile makeover or just need to cover a chipped tooth, mask a cracked tooth, or close gaps between your teeth. They require little to no prepping and can often be applied in just one dental visit!
Inlays & Onlays
For decades, patients have had two main dental restorations: fillings and crowns. Fillings were used for cavities and small cracks and chips, and crowns were designed to cover the entire tooth and allow patients to retain healthy, natural dental structure. However, placing a dental crown may require the removal of large amounts of healthy tooth structure. Inlays and onlays are the “happy medium” between filings and crowns. Inlays fill in decay or damage between the cusps (the elevated parts of a tooth’s biting surface), while onlays cover or restore one or more cusps.
Tired of masking your smile because you don't like the way your teeth look? A smile makeover can be a big boost to your confidence and self-esteem. With a total smile makeover, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, gapped teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth, and gapped teeth can be completely transformed into the smile of your dreams. This is done through a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, including tooth-colored fillings, cosmetic dental bonding, porcelain veneers, crowns, braces, bridges, and dental implants.
