Santa Ana cosmetic dentistryIf you’ve had dental work in the past and are unhappy with the way it looks, our cosmetic dentist can help. From teeth that have been discolored by metal fillings to cracked or otherwise damaged teeth, cosmetic procedures can restore your smile to its original look.

Problems with Your Dental Work

Even if you’ve had restorations or other work done by an excellent dentist, problems can develop over time. Even worse is when you end up having dental work done that is poorly executed and detracts from your overall appearance. However, even in this case, cosmetic dentistry treatments can help you look your best again.

Some problems that can develop after dental restorations include:

  • Large fillings that eventually lead to cracks in teeth
  • Discoloration or perceived discoloration from metal fillings
  • Metal crowns that detract from your overall appearance

All these issues can be corrected by a cosmetic dentist, often with a relatively simple procedure. A consultation can help you determine what approach will work best for you.

Cosmetic Procedures to Improve Your Look

Some common procedures that can help repair unsightly dental work include:

  • Veneers
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Porcelain crowns

If your front teeth have suffered surface damage, cracks, or chipping, veneers are an excellent choice to restore your smile. Treatment with veneers is relatively non-invasive and can provide a dramatic result.

If you have metal fillings or crowns, you can have them replaced with tooth-colored substitutes. Our dentist can help determine if tooth-colored crowns are a good option for you. They don’t stand up to chewing pressure as well as metal crowns, but you can also have metal crowns that are covered in porcelain which will hold up better and still give you a natural look.
