Putting Your Best Smile Forward

Great oral health is a combination of several factors; cavity-free teeth and healthy gums are two of those, but what about your psychological health? Even if your mouth is free of disease and functions well, if you’re afraid to smile or socialize because of stained or crooked teeth, a gummy smile, or more, this a serious issue that can affect your self-esteem and ability to live your life to the fullest. For these issues, we recommend cosmetic dentistry.

Treating Stained Teeth

Tooth stains or discolorations – whether they are caused by dark foods and drinks, medications, or aging – can mar your appearance and affect your confidence. Dr. Truong offers three different methods for transforming your drab smile into a dazzling one: in-office teeth whitening, at-home whitening, or a combination of the two.

Fixes for a Variety of Imperfections

For teeth that do not respond to professional whitening, Dr. Truong offers cosmetic bonding, or our prosthodontist, Dr. Ambriz, can oversee the placement of porcelain veneers to cover the stains and restore luster to your teeth. These two cosmetic options are also effective fixes for improving the appearance of teeth that are gapped, misshapen, chipped, small, or slightly crooked. Another option for misshapen or slightly overlapping teeth is tooth contouring, which removes a small portion enamel to reshape the tooth.

Help for a Gummy Smile

Those who show too much gum tissue know that perfect teeth aren’t the only component of an attractive smile. To help reduce excessive gum tissue and restore balance to your smile, Dr. Truong employs Electrosurge, a surgical unit that precisely and gently removes excess gum tissues with electric currents, as opposed to more traditional surgeries with scalpels.
