One of the first things that people notice when they talk to you is your smile and your teeth. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, you may find yourself hiding behind your hand or avoiding laughing at even some of the funniest jokes. This is no way to live and with the help of Dr. Kenneth Cho Dentistry in La Habra, CA, you do NOT have to live this way. Our team is ready to help you get the smile you have always dreamed of through our cosmetic dentistry services. Below, you can learn more about the procedures we offer here in our office.
Bonding for your teeth is a great option when you have some cosmetic issues on the surface of the tooth. This procedure is also ideal for patients who want to replace silver fillings. The bonding is made from a resin material and is formed to your tooth. Bonding is tooth colored in appearance, so it blends in naturally.
Dental veneers are made from either a porcelain or resin material and they are thin in size. The veneers are perfect for patients who want to cover up stains, cracks, gaps, or any other issues with their teeth. Preparation of the tooth involves removing some of the tooth’s enamel. Once the enamel is removed, the veneer is then cemented to the tooth.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings and are often referred to as indirect fillings. An inlay is bonded to the center of the tooth and an onlay is bonded to the points of the tooth. Inlays and onlays are ideal for patients who have a decayed or damaged tooth.
One of the most popular ways to improve the look of your smile is through teeth whitening services. Our La Habra office offers in-house whitening that can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in just one visit. Our team also provides maintenance whitening products for you to continue to maintain your white smile at home.
You have likely heard a dental crown called a cap. This type of cosmetic procedure is perfect for patients who have damaged or decayed teeth. The cap works to protect the tooth from any further damage or decay. Crowns come in several material types including porcelain and metal.
If you find that you are missing one or more teeth in your mouth, you may be looking for a replacement option. Dental implants are a great choice. Implants include a post that is placed into your jawbone and once the jawbone is healed, a crown is attached to the post. Your new smile will look and feel as natural as possible.
