Beautiful Aesthetics for Improved Confidence

Cosmetic dental treatment involves any type of procedure that improves the overall appearance of a patient’s smile. This can mean dental work on the teeth, gums, or bite. It’s not uncommon to think of cosmetic dentistry as surface-level treatment. Though cosmetic dentistry from our Corte Madera, CA dentist deals with improving the appearance of a smile, there’s quite a bit more to it.

Misaligned or malformed teeth can cause your mouth, teeth, and jaw to work extra hard to perform tasks such as eating or verbal communication. Correcting these sorts of issues can prevent further problems down the road.

Other types of treatments, including teeth whitening or veneers, are designed to keep your teeth looking and feeling healthy. From size, shape, alignment, and color, our cosmetic dentist in Corte Madera, Dr. Julie Young, can transform your entire smile.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Our tooth-colored fillings—or cosmetic dental fillings as they are also called—are the perfect way to protect decayed teeth that need to withstand moderate pressure from chewing. They’re called cosmetic dental fillings because, instead of being made of silver, they are composed of a composite resin material designed to perfectly match the color of your natural teeth. Its malleable material makes for easy placement, allowing Dr. Young to shape it to ensure a beautiful, blended, and virtually invisible solution.

This type of filling results in a restored tooth that is attractive as well as fully functional! Most family, friends, and colleagues will never be able to tell that you received dental work, and you can expect it to last a decade or longer if you take proper care of it over time.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry option that will not only brighten your smile but make it stronger as well. Veneers are designed to be placed over the front surface of your teeth, giving them a more uniform appearance. The porcelain material adds a highly durable layer to your teeth to give them added strength. Customized to match your desired shape, size, and color, veneers are considered to be one of the most popular methods of cosmetic treatment available.

When choosing this option to transform your smile, your dentist in Corte Madera will remove a small bit of enamel from each tooth receiving a veneer. This will allow the bonding agent to properly adhere the veneer to your tooth. Once your new teeth are in place, you can expect your results to last a decade or more before needing to be replaced. Dental veneers are a simple way to give yourself a whole new look!
