There are a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments that you can use to fill in the gaps in your smile. From veneers and implants to dental bonding, you can restore both the function and appearance of your smile with 2-3 visits to our dentist in Turlock or our dentist in Modesto.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are carefully crafted to fit over your teeth. They are a great choice for patients who have minor imperfections in their smile.
Veneers are particularly popular because they require little to no downtime. The whole process only takes two or three dental appointments and typically only requires local anesthesia. During your first visit, we’ll remove a thin layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth to make room for the veneer. Then, we’ll take an impression of your tooth to send to the dental lab, where your veneer will be custom-made. Don’t worry; you won’t need to live with a temporary veneer.
During your second visit, we’ll remove your temporary veneer and bond the permanent veneer to your tooth. Because veneers are stain-resistant, you won’t need to whiten your teeth.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in a patient’s mouth. Once the posts are implanted, the patient has to wait several weeks for the posts to fuse to the jawbone. Once this process is complete, the implants can provide permanent support for dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures.
Dental implants are one of the most natural-looking tooth replacement options because they look just like your natural teeth. Plus, they are the only tooth replacement option that can prevent jawbone recession.
Dental bonding is also an excellent choice for patients who are looking to replace minor, aesthetic imperfections in their smile. They can also be used to repair chipped, cracked, or worn teeth.
Dental bonding is an affordable cosmetic procedure, and it can be done in a single dental appointment.
