Many patients can benefit from cosmetic dentistry treatments, especially the ones who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth and want a more attractive smile. Other individuals seek treatment because of damage to one or several of their teeth affecting their ability to chew or speak properly.
Patients undergo cosmetic dental procedures to improve their smile's overall function and health. At So Young Park, DDS, our cosmetic dentist can provide personalized advice on which treatments suit you based on your goals and concerns.
An attractive smile can help you make a great first impression, feel confident in social and professional situations, and enjoy a varied and active social life. At our dental office, you can choose from several cosmetic dentistry procedures to meet your aesthetic goals. For example, professional teeth whitening can brighten your teeth by several shades in just one visit, while porcelain veneers can transform several teeth at once.
A skilled and experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Park can use a combination of techniques and materials to help you achieve a smile that lights up the room. First and foremost, the dentist will ensure your oral health is good before pursuing any cosmetic procedure. This is because damaged tooth structure, gum disease, and other oral health issues must be resolved first to ensure the longevity of your new smile. Once your mouth is healthy, our dentist can work with your unique needs and goals to design a customized treatment plan and enhance your appearance.
Whitening is the most popular cosmetic procedure because it works quickly and has minimal side effects. This treatment uses special bleaching agents to remove teeth stains caused by aging or staining foods, beverages, or tobacco.
Repairing the shape and look of teeth can be achieved with bonding treatments. Many patients choose to bond their teeth to cover minor gaps and cracks in their teeth. The entire process can be completed in just one office visit and the results last for years before needing to be touched up.
Veneers are often an excellent treatment option for patients interested in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are thin shells of ceramic or resin material bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance. They are custom-made to match a patient's natural tooth color, shape, and size for a seamlessly beautiful look.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a damaged or broken tooth to restore its shape and size and protect it from further damage.
Our dentist can also recommend other treatments to help you achieve your smile goals. To learn more about cosmetic dentistry, visit So Young Park, DDS at 1660 Westwood Dr Ste G, San Jose, CA 95125, or call (408) 264-1917.
