Cosmetic Dental Services at Our Dental Office
Achieve the smile you have always wanted. At Fullerton Craft Smiles, patients expect individualized dental care with the highest quality materials and techniques. However, cosmetic treatments should not be done at the expense of your overall dental health. Addressing any underlying dental problems is an important part of your overall treatment. Thus, we will recommend fixing functional issues before cosmetic issues. This is the key to enjoying lasting results.
Our cosmetic treatments include:
- Teeth whitening: Give your teeth a sparkling, whiter smile with professional teeth whitening at our dental practice. Our professional in-office treatment works on even the most stubborn stains. Our at-home whitening options are proven safe and clinically tested to ensure maximum results every time.
- Dental crowns: This restoration is perfect for patients with missing teeth, unsightly damaged teeth, and more. A dental crown provides support after a root canal but can also fix cosmetic problems. We also use them with dental implant treatment to replace missing teeth.
- Dental bonding: With this economic tooth restoration, you can close the gaps between your teeth. We can make short teeth longer, fix chipped and cracked teeth, and more. We can use two bonding materials: ceramic or composite resin.
- Invisalign clear aligners: If you’re tired of old-fashioned metal braces, clear aligners are a perfect solution. You won’t experience the same discomfort as metal braces during your treatment. Additionally, you will be able to maintain your regular activities without limitations. Invisalign can correct gaps between teeth, close spaces between teeth, tilt teeth into better positions, and more.
- Porcelain veneers: This is a popular dental procedure that can improve the appearance of your teeth. We use them to cover the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can correct many dental problems, including teeth that are stained or discolored teeth, gapped or spaced apart, chipped or broken teeth, and more.
Complete Smile Makeover
A smile makeover usually involves many procedures to get you the smile of your dreams. We perform a full oral exam and discuss your medical history, oral health, budget, and goals. All of these things are taken into consideration when we’re planning your smile makeover treatment. The treatment options are personalized and designed to fit your unique needs.
With a smile makeover, we want to improve both your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Invisalign allows us to bring crooked teeth into alignment and avoid the oral health complications they can cause. Porcelain veneers and dental bonding allow us to fix many different cosmetic issues. If you have cosmetic chips or cracks, misshapen teeth, or discolored teeth that don’t respond to traditional whitening methods, porcelain veneers can help.
Though they’re usually seen as restorative treatment options, dental crowns, and dental implants often factor into smile makeovers. Dental crowns cover a full tooth and can restore both function and aesthetics to a tooth. Missing teeth are also something you want to correct in your smile. Dental implants are the best way to do that. They look and feel the most natural of all the tooth replacement options.
Cosmetic Dentistry: The Many Benefits
The benefits that people expect from cosmetic dentistry are usually aesthetic. However, cosmetic dentistry provides benefits in other areas. The additional benefits make cosmetic dentistry an even better option for your smile.
Improved Mental Health and Social Interactions
Your smile plays a big part in your confidence and self-esteem. When you’re not confident in your smile, you’re less likely to smile and laugh comfortably in public. Instead of enjoying the moment, you’re trying to hide your smile imperfections. With a bad smile, you’re more likely to suffer from conditions like depression and anxiety. You’re worried about what people think of your smile and nervous about their opinions.
When self-conscious about your teeth, you’re less likely to speak publicly and smile confidently. Your social interactions improve when you’re confident in your smile. You can speak freely and engage more with people, letting your natural smile and reactions shine. People are likelier to flock to someone who smiles and seems self-assured, leading to better relationships with existing friends and increasing the likelihood of making new ones.
Cosmetic dentistry can even improve your professional prospects. Whether you’re up for a big promotion or have an interview for a new job, a good smile improves your chances. People with clean, bright smiles are seen as more trustworthy and capable in their occupations. It shows that you care for your hygiene and pay attention to the little details. This is something that every employer is looking for.
Better Oral Function
Many cosmetic dental problems coincide with underlying oral health issues. One of the best examples of this is crooked teeth. Patients who come to us to straighten their teeth aren’t happy with how they look. However, straightening crooked teeth can help you avoid multiple oral health problems.
First, crooked teeth are harder to clean than straight ones. Instead of even spacing, some areas of the mouth can be cramped. Teeth come together at odd angles. In severe cases, your mouth can be so crowded that you cannot get dental floss or specialized tools in all areas of your smile. Even if you do everything right in caring for your oral health, plaque and tartar still build up in these areas. You’re still at high risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease.
Crooked teeth also cause an uneven bite. When your upper and lower jaw come together, the pressure of your bite evenly distributes throughout your teeth. If the teeth are crooked, this distribution isn’t even. Some teeth take on more stress than others. These teeth wear down faster and are more likely to develop tooth decay or fracture. This leads to a need for restorative dentistry to strengthen and restore these teeth.
An uneven bite is one of the main causes of TMJ disorders. The muscles that move your jaw become strained, and the jaw joint doesn’t track properly. This causes the jaw joint to break down. You may experience popping and clicking when you move your jaw, pain and tension throughout the head and face, and an inability to move your jaw into certain positions.
