Cosmetic Dentistry Encinitas, CA
Some people are blessed with a beautiful smile from birth, but most people need a little bit of help to get their smiles up to par. Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile rather than the health and function of your teeth and gums. People choose cosmetic dentistry to repair a defect in their smile such as a malformed bite, chipped or damaged teeth, discoloration, or to replace missing teeth. Whatever the reason, the ultimate goal is to restore your smile and bring it back to life. Dr. Michael Klein, D.M.D., APC, your cosmetic dentist in Encinitas, CA, offers cosmetic treatments to help you put your best smile forward.
Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening
It’s not uncommon for years of drinking tea and coffee or bad habits like, smoking to gradually result in a discolored smile. With teeth whitening, eliminating stains and enhancing your natural white can produce dramatic results in as little as an hour. In-office teeth bleaching performed by your professional Encinitas dentist involves applying a bleaching gel to the teeth and activating the whitening solution with special lighting for approximately 30 minutes.
Your dentist in Encinitas, CA at Dr. Michael Klein, D.M.D., APC can also provide you with trays, custom designed to perfectly fit your teeth so that you can continue the bleaching process at home with a less powerful gel. By using the gel and the trays on a regular basis, you can touch up and continue the bleaching process.
Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can replace them and restore function to your mouth. Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used in order to compensate for tooth loss. The result is an enhanced smile, in addition to a more youthful appearance. The use of implants can successfully restore function to your mouth and successfully bring your smile back to life.
A Hollywood Smile with Veneers
If your teeth are cracked, stained, uneven or chipped, veneers may be the perfect option for transforming the most damaged smile. These thin, porcelain shells are custom-designed by your Encinitas CA dentist to perfectly cover and match your natural smile to mask most any dental blemish, including stains and cracks. Compared to many treatment options, veneers will last a long time, up to 20 years, and correct the alignment of your smile by covering damaged or misshapen teeth.
