While health and functionality always comes first, the appearance of your smile can make a huge difference in your quality of life and overall self-confidence.That's why Dental Design SD is happy to serve as your go-to resource for cosmetic dentistry in Sorrento Valley and greater San Diego. Dr. Agatep and Dr. Avina are happy to provide you with cosmetic dental services such as:
Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation - Receding gums not only expose the tooth roots to erosion and disease, but that can also spoil your smile. Getting this condition corrected therefore has both health and cosmetic benefits -- and pinhole gum rejuvenation is the state of the art. This technique allows us to cover the exposed root surface by simply shifting the gum tissue without painful incisions or lengthy recovery times.
Teeth Whitening - Teeth whitening can strip away years of discoloration caused by food, beverage and tobacco staining. Unlike simply home kits, our clinical teeth whitening process uses a combination of professional-grade whitening agents and safeguards to protect sensitive gum tissue. Our in-house procedure can make your teeth several shades whiter in just one session.
Porcelain Veneers - If you're embarrassed by front teeth that are jagged, have large gaps, cracked, or too deeply discolored for effective whitening, porcelain veneers may be your answer. These thin tooth covers are cemented to the prepared front tooth surfaces, instantly giving you a perfect smile.
Cosmetic Bonding - Cosmetic bonding typically lasts about half long as veneers, but it's a great affordable alternative that can repair small chips and other imperfections in a single visit. Your dentist in San Diego uses tooth-colored resin to restore your tooth's ideal shape.
Same-Day Crowns - Crowns are the cosmetic choice when you must strengthen a tooth as well as beautify it. The process of completing a crown used to take weeks, but our CEREC Same-Day Crowns live up to their name. Our digital scanning and in-office milling equipment provides a precisely-fitting crown in a matter of hours.
Teeth Straightening - Our San Diego dentist can help you enjoy straighter teeth the fashionable way. Our Six Month Smiles options features clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, while our Invisalign clear aligner trays are all but undetectable at a distance (and easily removed for big events or close interactions).
Dental Implants - Patients who need to replace one or more teeth but don't want to contend with bridges or dentures will love the many advantages of dental implants. These surgically-implanted posts are topped with permanent crowns to give you realistic, perfectly functional teeth that require no special care or concern beyond good dental hygiene.
Now that you see some of the ways our San Diego dentist can give your smile something to smile about, take a big first step toward that happier life. Call Dental Design SD at 858-490-4281 to schedule a consultation!
