As one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments, professional teeth whitening can help you lift stubborn stains and discoloration from the surface of the teeth that may be caused by:
- Red wine
- Tobacco products
- Prescription medications
The amount of lift that is achieved with a professional whitening session may vary from patient to patient; your dentist and hygienist will be able to consult with you on how many sessions you will need to complete to achieve your whitest smile.
Orthodontic treatment - whether it be traditional braces or a clear aligner system such as Invisalign - can be used to completely transform an individual’s smile. Orthodontic treatment is used to correct:
- Crooked teeth
- Spaces or gaps
- Misaligned teeth
- Malocclusion (overbite, underbite, or crossbite)
Invisalign and traditional braces can provide exceptional results for those who are looking to achieve a more visually-pleasing and healthy smile. Here at EZ Dental, we are proud to offer both forms of orthodontic treatment here in our San Jose dental office.
For patients who wish to fill spaces in their smile line caused by missing teeth, dental implants are an excellent option.
Dental implants are titanium devices that are placed in the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. A crown is fixed over the top of the dental implant to provide both the look and function of a natural tooth. The shade, shape, and size of the implant crown will be closely matched to the surrounding natural teeth, making it nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye.
When properly cared for, implants can last decades, and even an entire lifetime. They provide an aesthetically-pleasing dental restoration while simultaneously preserving bone density.
Dental veneers are perhaps the best option for those who are looking to completely transform the look, shape and size of their smile.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are attached to the surface of the teeth; they are typically used to correct gaps in the smile line, customize the shape or color of the teeth, or to correct slightly misaligned teeth.
The placement of veneers requires some light prepwork to be done to the natural tooth, but this method of treatment is much less invasive than dental implants or crowns, making it a viable option for those who simply wish to make cosmetic changes to their smile rather than undergo restorative dental treatments.
No matter the treatment method you choose to pursue your smile makeover, EZ Dental is well-equipped to help you achieve the beautiful and healthy smile of your dreams.
