Can you truly say you’re teeth are white? According to a poll taken by
the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), when asked, “What
satisfied you least about your smile?” The number one answer people gave
was tooth color. Cosmetic dentistry methods such as tooth whitening can
give you a whiter and brighter appearance, allowing you to smile with
confidence.

The combination of science and modern cosmetic dentistry can produce
amazing results that frequently exceed even the highest of patient
expectations. This page is here to acquaint you with the materials and
techniques available in cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry

Touch Ups
Yellow or brown stains, white spots, asymmetrical gum contours and uneven
edges can disfigure your smile. Simple corrective cosmetic dentistry
techniques can bring dramatic results immediately. All of the following
cosmetic dentistry procedures can usually be performed in the dentist
office in one or two visits.

A. Jagged tooth edges can be re contoured and polished in one office
visit.

B. Asymmetrical soft tissue contours can be corrected in a single office
visit with minimal local anesthetic. Your gums can account for as much as
50 percent of the total cosmetic value of your front teeth. This is
especially evident in the smiles of younger patients where gums are
displayed a lot when smiling or talking. An Anterior soft-tissue re
contour is a procedure accomplished in a single visit with a laser and/or
electro-surgery techniques. The results are dramatic and predictable may
last a lifetime.

C. Yellow or brown stains can be reduced by a simple “whitening” process
which involves a patented gel and a blue curing light. The BriteSmile™
“whiter teeth in about an hour” treatment is a popular amenities, much
faster than laser whitening. The results can be dramatic and stunning.
BriteSmile™ can whiten your teeth by up to 9 shades whiter in one visit.

D. Many dark and super-white spots can be reduced in one office visit by
using an acidic-micro-abrasion scrub. These unsightly spots can safely be
removed usually in a single office visit with an “acidic-micro-abrasion
technique”. Absolutely no anesthetic is required.

“Touch Up” Cosmetic Dentistry procedures are techniques which give you
the biggest “bang for your buck”. These procedures are proven to be
simple, safe, quick, and non-invasive. They are inexpensive, and the
results are immediate, dramatic and long lasting.

Cosmetic dentistry in San Francisco has gone through many advances over
the last decade, with the advent of newer more effective treatments to
whiten your teeth, change the appearance your teeth, and with new
materials and special equipment with which to use them. Cosmetic
dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth using reshaping, bonding,
porcelain veneers, or dental implants, and a variety of other industry
procedures.

Decayed, cracked and chipped teeth are common, but they can destroy your
smile. As a result of tooth-grinding, too-vigorous tooth brushing, decay,
or just bad circumstances, many damaged or disfigured teeth can be
restored. The Cosmetic Dentist adheres restorative materials directly to
your teeth, this technique is called “direct adhesion” (called “bonding”)
Direct adhesion methods maximally preserve the existing natural tooth
structures. Properly cared for and not abused, these materials last
years. Even then, outright material failure is rare.

Cosmetic dentistry techniques can improve the appearance of your damaged,
discolored, misshapen, or misaligned teeth. Take the time to find a good
cosmetic Dentist in your area to explain to your personally how stress
free and painless the procedures can be.
