Dental bonding is also known as chairside veneers. This is a great option if you want to:
Your Downey cosmetic dentist will start by gently removing some of the enamel from your front teeth. Then, they’ll shape composite filling material onto the surface that can help straighten, brighten, and repair the teeth.
The composite resin is bonded to the teeth and light-cured. After that, your dentist will polish the bonding until it is just as shiny and slick as your natural teeth.
Dental implants are a wonderful way to replace missing teeth and can permanently restore the look of your smile. Your dentist can provide you with multiple implants and cosmetic dental options, such as:
If you are missing a single tooth, your dentist can replace the tooth with a single implant post and a dental crown. Single implants look, function, and feel like natural teeth. They are easy to floss, too!
If you are missing multiple teeth, your Downey dentist can replace them using multiple teeth implants. There are two ways to do this:
Multiple Single Implants
A single implant is placed wherever there is a missing tooth, including multiple teeth in a row. This is a great option if you can afford it because multiple single implants are easy to clean (just like natural teeth) and help retain the density of your jawbone.
An Implant-Supported Fixed Bridge
Let’s say you are missing three teeth in a row. Your Downey cosmetic dentist can place two dental implants into your jawbone, restoring the two outside teeth and leaving space in the middle.
Then, they can fabricate a porcelain fixed bridge, which is made up of three parts: a pontic (fake tooth) and two abutment crowns. The crowns sandwich the pontic and fit onto the implants.
This is a great option if you cannot afford to replace every single tooth with an implant but still want the support and strength that implants provide.
If you are fully edentulous or are missing all the teeth on one arch, you will need a full denture to replace your missing teeth.
Unfortunately, traditional dentures have their downsides. Because they sit on top of the gums, there is nothing to anchor the jawbone, which will recede over time. Eventually, this leads to an ill-fitting denture that can start to slip when you speak or chew and can lead to gum sores and embarrassment.
The All-on-4 system utilizes just four implants that are strategically placed into the jawbone. Then, attachments are placed on the implants and in the base of the denture. The denture can then be snapped into place.
The result: better-fitting dentures that feel more secure and healthier gums and bones.
Composite fillings are used instead of amalgam fillings, which contain potentially harmful substances, including mercury. The composite resin material comes in a variety of shades and can be mixed to match your natural tooth shade perfectly. Composite fillings are safe, durable, and beautiful.
The main reason your Downey orthodontist would recommend braces or Invisalign® is to correct your bite and prevent the painful symptoms of malocclusion. Another reason is cosmetics.
With traditional braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, or ceramic braces, we can:
Orthodontic treatment is a great complement to teeth whitening and other cosmetic dental options.
